    Catherine Full Body is an excellent game, regardless of your platform. The story is excellent and takes different directions and places according to the player's decisions. The puzzle is initially simple, but it becomes challenging and addictive as you progress through the game. This is not only a classic of Atlus, but also one of their best titles and it certainly deserves more prominence.

    Not only do they add to an already great experience, but they made the game feel fresh. Rin’s introduction to the storyline added a whole new dimension to the already twisted love triangle, while Remix mode did the same for the puzzles. It is a little disappointing, however, that Catherine: Full Body didn’t quite solve the issues its takes on transgender people created in the original. That said, if you haven’t played Catherine before, now’s a great chance to jump on the train. If you have, Catherine: Full Body is certainly worthy of the encore.

    Catherine: Full Body is an outstanding title that has a very attractive plot and talks about everyday personal issues. All this with an extraordinary soundtrack and a striking artistic style. We should also highlight the fun that its multiplayer mode offers.

    Catherine: Full Body is as much of a joy to play as it ever has been. If you’re wanting to play on a big TV, the PS4 version of the game is the clear way to go, but getting absorbed in the game’s excellent narrative or sinking your teeth into a puzzle is hugely rewarding in handheld mode. You’re not going to regret picking it up on Switch, put it that way.

    Catherine Full Body throws you into the most puzzling affair you could ever imagine. This action-adventure puzzle games about the ups and downs of relationships captivate from start to finish thanks to its creative story and it's difficult yet fun puzzles. The only downside is that the camera and the controls are a bit slippery in this Switch version.

    The inclusion of all the DLCs, the presence of extra dubbing options and, last but not least, the possibility of using them in a handheld mode, away from prying eyes, make it an essential opportunity.

    What can I say but “yikes”...Over the past decade I have largely avoided revisiting Catherine because I knew that it likely had not aged well, and I didn’t really want to spoil the good memories I had of playing the game. My tastes have changed a lot over the years, and while I’ve gained a new appreciation for the incredible puzzle-solving gameplay, I’ve been utterly astounded at just how poorly the story has aged. It’s unfortunate, since the voice acting, visuals, and overall cinematic direction of both cutscenes and gameplay are all excellent. This game is the product of a passionate and talented team. It’s just a shame that their efforts were all in service to writing that is cynical, regressive, outdated, and just plain exhausting.

    Loved watching the game back in 2013 on Pewdiepie’s channel, never played the Full Body version so i’m really pleased this came to switch.

    Este es un juego que merece la pena solo por la original propuesta que presenta su mezcla de géneros, sin dejar de ser un spin-off de SMT,Este es un juego que merece la pena solo por la original propuesta que presenta su mezcla de géneros, sin dejar de ser un spin-off de SMT, aunque tarde en verse. La historia es bastante original para un juego, así como el anti-heroe que tenemos como protagonista, pero mucho más mundano que los anti-heroes que presentan otros juegos. El sistema de puzzles es original y la toma de decisiones hacía los diferentes finales es la típica de SMT. Sin embargo tiene sus puntos negativos. Primero es el tema de la rejugabilidad: el juego presenta varios modos y dificultades que aumentan la rejugabilidad, factor importante dados los múltiples finales y las diferentes decisiones que podemos tomar durante la partida que decidirán también el destino de los secundarios, pero aún así, después de dos o tres partidas se hace pesado y acabaras saltándote los niveles así como la historia (cosa que puedes hacer si ya los completaste en ese modo de dificultad. Como segunda cosa, la variedad de desafíos en los niveles podría haber sido algo mayor y no estar solo artificialmente aumentada con el minijuego del bar (cuya música acabaras odiando si quieres completarlo).

    puzzles always feel the same and a poor resolution don't help to improve to game experience.
