PS3 Attitude writes, "The premise of Catherine revolves around Vincent, just your normal, everyday type of guy who has been with his girlfriend for five years now. Naturally, she’s pressuring him to commit, but he isn’t quite ready to pop the big question just yet. Early on in the game, Vincent spends a lot of his time hanging out at the bar. Here, he can order drinks or chat with the bar’s interesting patrons. Soon, however, Vincent finds himself drifting off into a nightmarish dream world."
