Not for the average gamer, 2 Dec 2012
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.
