5.0 out of 5 stars Beneath you it Devours, 16 Aug. 2012
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Catherine (PS3) (Video Game)
Whoever thought that a block moving game could be so intense?
Not me but from the makers of Persona "Atlas" have come up with a game so unique you have never played anything quite like it.
The main focus of Catherine is a block moving puzzle game where you control a guy called Vincent in a dream world where you need to climb from the bottom to the top of a pile of blocks, sounds easy? Well it isn't. There is so much more depth to it then it sounds. As you progress through the game you will learn new techniques to help you move blocks as well as other characters trying to push you off! While you climb you will also be against the clock as levels will start to fall away beneath you as you get higher or during boss battles you will be chased to the top which gives you a sense of fear and panic.

On top of the puzzle sections there is actually a deep surreal storyline, the block moving puzzle element is actually a dream world but once you wake you will spend all your other time inside a pub called the Stray Sheep. During these moments you can interact with the characters in the pub, drink and even play an arcade game (which is a version of the main puzzle game). Everything you do or say during your play through will affect the story and how it ends; even drinking will affect your performance during the climb levels.
The puzzle sections are quite challenging and you will find yourself stuck a few times staring at the screen trying to work out how to get higher. As you near the top you will hear a bell ringing which really gives you a sigh of relief and once to get to the top you feel satisfied with a sense of achievement.

Like I said previously choices through the game will affect the outcome, things you do and say are not so black and white and sometimes what you may think is a good answer it might not turn out that way. Once you reach the top of every climb you can chat to some of the other characters who made it to the top, all these characters in the dream world will all appear as sheep........Do they seem familiar? During your time at the top it is best to learn new techniques from the other sheep as they will be useful in the later levels.

Another thing I like is after every climb you will be asked a 50/50 question, once answered it will look online and tell you what most people chose which I felt was a nice touch.

Catherine is an original game so if you are after something different and challenging I fully recommend it.
