Hey Guys, after about three day of challenging and frustrating puzzles, I finally managed to finish the survival horror game, Catherine. I loved Catherine, I thought it was pretty fun and challenging. Although, I ended up getting the worst possible ending in the game. But anyway, what score does Catherine deserve?
The best part of Catherine is the story. Things spice up once you progress through the story, but the outcome is based on you the gamer.
The controls can take some time to get used to, but you'll learn fast. Using blocks to climb during the nightmare stages require critical thinking. If you screw up once, you're pretty much done. It can be frustrating, but you'll soon pass it. Also, there is a Karma meter based on your actions. The questions you answer will either have a negative or positive effect on the story. Questions include, texting, Confessions in the nightmare levels, and interacting with other people. Getting good karma will lead you to Katherine and bad karma will lead you to Catherine.
When it comes to the gameplay, the graphics look pretty good. The anime cutscens look wonderful in enriching HD. So all in all, the game looks beautiful in HD.
VGT Score: 9.85 Out Of 10
Even though the game has a frustrating difficulty, it's still worth playing it again. In total, there is 8 possible endings. I got the worst like I said, but I'm not spoiling it. The graphics are outstanding in HD. Climbing blocks is a fresh new idea and choosing questions to change the story has been done before. Such as Heavy Rain. However, I highly recommend you play this game.
Till Next Time and A Happy New Year!!
