if you havent played this game, and you like pseudo RPGs and puzzle games, you need to go get it on amazon right now. it is like 18 dollars and a fantastic game. It is made by the folks that make the persona games, so expect a game with style and flash. it tells a great, mature story and is genuinely challenging. The game was very under the radar and released with little to no marketing, but people really need to play it and support ATLUS, one of the last japanese developers that consistently tells a great story and designs great RPGs.

I thought it was terrible and I usually love Atlus games. It was way more puzzle than rpg.

Catherine Review

i will say, the block puzzles can get frustratingly difficult, which did take away from my enjoyment a little. still an awesome game with a great story to tell.

Played it a little and stopped for like several months and return it to gamefly. It is not that the game is bad. It is just that I just broke up and playing the games relates me as Katherine. And literately the more fun side of Catherine stole him from me. Not that my situation is exactly the same, but, metaphorically I can relate it. I envy the guys who plays it as a game. For me, it is almost as playing a reflection of my life, except, even if I make the character choose Katherine, the reality is still the same.

For me, it might be one of those games i always wanted to try (like Max Payne 3 for example) but never bought or tried it. Distant memory!

Am I missing something? Was it supposed to be an RPG? Of course it's a puzzle game, the gameplay is painted with it and it's amazing.

Absolutely loved this game. I really need to go back sometime and play it again, try for a different ending.

The OP called it a "pseudo-rpg".

I thought it was ok. I like the story, but I'm not really into puzzle games.
