    A fantastic story well told, superbly presented. When it comes to point and click adventures on Steam, Kathy reigns.

    No hyperbole, Kathy Rain is yet another milestone in this resurgence of old-school point-and-click adventures.

    Kathy Rain is a really exciting point 'n' click adventure that every fan of eerie and dark adventures should play, even if it is hard for some to swallow the pill of the AGS engine.

    Kathy Rain is a delightful little adventure game to add to the massive pile of fun adventure games released in the last couple of months.

    Kathy Rain is an great adventure, that combines a vintage look to an intense and strong story. Given the quality of the plot and the variety of puzzles, we can forgive the presence of some stereotypical characters.

    The pacing of the narrative works well and kept me wanting to push forward and find out more. I would certainly recommend this game if you like point and click adventure games or like narrative driven games that have slightly darker and mature themes, but still manages to have moments of humour.

    Mediocrity in every way. The developers of Kathy Rain should have realized early on that they are unable to create a work of art with interesting supernatural elements and human emotions.

Well,It came as no surprise to me the fact Kathy Rain got such low ratings on Metacritic, and I´m not only refering to the user´s critics. Well, "critics" wouldn´t be the right term, since so far (at the moment of writing this review) there are a only 2 proper user reviews, and both recognize the game properly.

Los personajes son interesantes y con carácter, la protagonista es bastante carismática, apetece vivir más aventuras junto a ella.
    Los puzzles no son muy complejos pero tampoco automáticos, en más de uno tienes que pensar un poco.

    I bought this expecting another Gabriel Knight, but this is a disappointment. There are very little puzzles in it, the story is quite shortI bought this expecting another Gabriel Knight, but this is a disappointment. There are very little puzzles in it, the story is quite short and the ending clearly makes it like a first episode and not a full length game. Also I'm getting sick of low res graphics... Makes it hard to distinguish things. Expand
