To say that Catherine is one strange beast would be an understatement. The newest game from the aclaimed publisher Atlus, and the development team that brought you the Persona series, takes large strides forward and many steps backwards throughout our protagonist’s journey to win the hearts of Catherine or Katherine. The story itself is easily the high point of our game, with some interesting twists and turns as it progresses. Even the gameplay feels really different from your average title as your put to the test climbing immense towers of blocks by pushing and pulling them into positions to make stairways. It’s generally a good time and, while there can be a large amount of frustration, the time spent with Catherine is enjoyable.
