Catherine's core themes those of free will, of the delicate nature of relationships and the choices we make within them, marry perfectly with the intense, terrorfilled gameplay that serves to accurately reflect Vincent's growing sense of anxiety. It is an experience wholly unlike any to come before it, and is certain to leave gamers talking and thinking about Vincent's tribulations long after the credits have rolled. Expand

    Catherine is a genuinely funny, fun and altogether unique experience, even now. It merges brilliantly challenging puzzle gameplay with an Animé adult-romance story that is as equally compelling as it is entertaining. It features interesting and deeply flawed characters, particularly the protagonist whose emotions directly affect the challenges he'll face. All of this contained within a game that has aged particularly well due to the colourful and Animé-style design.

    Catherine is a fantastic game, and it being on more platforms is great news, even if it doesn’t offer any new content or relevant new features.

    The journey to finding out what it means to you is certainly one worth taking.

    An adult video game that is neither exploitative nor pretentious, but instead weaves a fun yet incisive tale about all too human characters.

    Catherine is a fascinating experiment, but it’s rather uneven and has not aged well.

    Game claims unlocked frame rate however anyone with high refresh rate can tell its locked to 30 fps moving mouse cursor alone and the gameGame claims unlocked frame rate however anyone with high refresh rate can tell its locked to 30 fps moving mouse cursor alone and the game play is also tied down to 30 fps the frame counter may report higher but fake frames are inserted in they do not make the game appear smoother those fake frames, i am hoping this is a bug the port quality could be far better, there is a feedback thread up on steam page but not seen responses yet from devs. Expand
