Product Description


Manufacturer's Description

Falling for this girl might be hazardous to your health...

Vincent likes his girlfriend. Katherine's pretty, smart, and successful. Trouble is, she's starting to talk about long-term commitment, something Vincent's spent his entire life avoiding. Since romantic complications are the last thing he wants to deal with, Vincent meets his friends for their regular night of drinks. Little does he know that he's about to be blindsided by a beautiful, seductive, irresistible freight train named Catherine.

Suddenly, he's hung over in bed next to the most beautiful woman he's ever seen, unsure about the previous night's events. Was it just making out, he wonders, or did something more serious happen between them? Should he tell Katherine? Will he ever see Catherine again? Vincent's about to find that a stumble on the staircase of love can turn into a horrific, fatal plummet...

Vincent's waking fears, doubts, pressures, and growing guilt about commitment and fidelity now follow him into his dreams, manifesting as horribly disfigured monsters and a ticking clock.

The player must navigate Vincent through heavy moral decisions. As in real life, hardly anything is black and white. Someone's going to get hurt!

The Nightmare of Your Dreams-Under the watch of producer Katsura Hashino, acclaimed director of Persona 3 and Persona 4, famed character artist Shigenori Soejima and master composer Shoji Meguro create sights and sounds unlike anything else.

Local versus and co‐op multiplayer modes, in addition to leader boards, ensure that the many thrills and horrors of racing through twisted stages can be enjoyed by more than one player.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sheeptastical! 12 Feb 2012
By Birdman
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this game on import a few months ago and played it solidly until completion, which is pretty unusual for me nowadays, being an older gamer with other commitments. I simply don't have time to waste on playing sub par games. I can happily say that this game is far from being sub par. As soon as I started the adventure it pulled me in to it's sureal world. At least, half of the game is a surreal nightmare and the other being the main character Vincent's waking life and the moral dilemmas he faces. I won't elaborate too much on the story, as I feel this would spoil it. The game is essentially part RPGish interactions in the setting of Vincent's local, a bar named The Stray Sheep. Here you get to chat with the games other characters and piece together the story and it's bizarre turn of events. The other half of the game consists of an action puzzler. You control Vincent in his nightmares, underpanted and pillow in hand, shifting blocks to ascend an enormous tower whilst battling crazed sheep and tackling bosses that are projections of his psychological woes. I wont lie, the puzzle sections are really hard and frustrating at times. In this respect, the game can be quite unforgiving until you get some of the gameplay mechanics down. Although difficult, it's great fun to play and the frustration is quickly forgotten when you ring the bell to signify the end of the level. The sense of achievement is immense! The two styles of gameplay really balance each other well. After a tricky puzzle nightmare, it's great to go to the bar and chill out, talking to your friends and getting drunk. I love the way that the game subtly endorses the getting drunk part, in that it improves your abilities in the nightmare sections. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly unique and very well put together 2 April 2013
By Leone

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Brought to us by Atlus, the creators of the Shin Megumi Tensei series, Persona games, and Trauma Center games - Catherine is a very risky game to bring out in a market that focuses mostly on 1st Person Shooters, Action-Adventure Platformers and Open World Roleplaying games (Which are all good to have). But what is so intriguing about this game is the genre compound. This is a Puzzler mixed with a Dating Simulator...how many games do you know have this combination? On top of that, it is an incredibly well made game. It has dark, yet beautiful anime style visuals, a multi-genred soundtrack with slightly incoherent lyrics that are very catchy (including elements of Pop, Jazz, Hip Hop and also classical music), and its gameplay is easy to pick up but takes time to master, as the puzzles themselves can become very challenging, even in easy mode. To go along with all of these components, the game's story, instead of focusing on a child, teenager or man/woman in their early 20s with great potential, we have a 32 year old man named Vincent and his peers experiencing the scares, troubles and struggles of adulthood...and this is before the nightmares begin. Vincent is in a relationship he isn't sure about, with a pushy yet caring woman named Katherine, who is suggesting marriage. One night at his favourite bar, The Stray Sheep, he meets the beautiful yet devious young woman named Catherine, who is "His type/The girl he wants". The following morning, he finds Catherine beside him. Where does this story go from here? The outcome depends on your choices throughout the game (and there are multiple endings, allowing for excellent replay value). The story itself is a black comedy drama with romance mixed in that had me laughing many times at the over-the-top awkwardness of the situation. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth a buy! 14 Nov 2012
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Another brilliant game from Atlus. Catherine is a puzzle game, in which you play Vincent, a 32 year old man who is scared to finally get married to his long term girlfriend, Katherine. In the midst of his confusion and worries at being tied down, he meets another Catherine(this time with a C) who is younger, wants no commitments, and is basically everything Vincent dreams of. One thing leads to another, and Vincent ends up somewhere he doesn't want to be, having to choose between Katherine or Catherine(who he just cheated with). The story is entertaining and unique, different from basically all the other games out there.

At night, due to his cheating, Vincent needs to make it up a series of towers in his nightmares. This is where the main game-play takes place, and it is fast paced, tense and fun. It is very difficult though, and I'd start on easy at first if your new to puzzle games, or just want to take in the story. You also hang out at Vincent's favourite bar during the day, where you can talk to all the patrons, as well as reply to texts from the two ladies.

All in all, Catherine is a rewarding albeit difficult experience that I'd recommend to anyone looking for something a little different and unique.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not for the average gamer 2 Dec 2012
By Mr. M.
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Verified Purchase
Being a puzzle game in itself, and with a japanese touch, there's a chance only a few people like this title,
but those love every bit of it.

This title is a visual novel game with an erotic/horror setting around it,
where you're going to play the box pulling puzzle game most of the time.

These are a bit challenging, but easy to learn at first, and outright seemingly impossible on the later levels. So those who look for challenging leves to solve will be definetly satisfied. Between levels, the player can rest, and talk to other characters, even driving the story to different courses and endings with his actions, which creates a great atmosphere.

To sum it up, Catherine is not a one-night-stand, and is only recommended for experienced gamers, who are devoted fans of the genre, especially puzzle games, and japanese styled story driven visual novels. If you're just into weird or unusual games in general, you can give it a shot, but be prepared for the trickier parts towards the end.
