Пожалуй, Catherine можно рекомендовать всем, но особенно — взрослым людям, которые не любят аниме и совершенно равнодушны к видеоиграм в принципе. Эта игра вполне способна заставить их пересмотреть свои взгляды на развлечения и лишний раз задуматься о собственной природе.

As if it wasn’t already obvious, I loved my time with Catherine. In many ways, I was completely blown-away by it. While I’m sure some gamers will be turned-off by its anime-style presentation and difficult gameplay, I implore those of you who are looking for something authentically different and outright fun to give Catherine a go. This isn’t a game just for puzzle fans or just for those who love anime. This is a game that melds so much together and is so different than anything else on the market that it’s for just about anyone who really loves games.

Catherine is door zijn taaie moeilijkheidsgraad soms een bittere pil om te slikken, maar doorbijters worden op hun wenken bediend met verslavende puzzels en één van de beste gameverhalen ooit.

Die vom Spieler sehr subtil, aber bis hin zu verschiedenen Enden beeinflussbare Geschichte wird ebenso spannend wie überzeugend in einem markanten Anime-Artdesign erzählt. Und sie verdient ein Extralob für den Versuch, sich schwieriger Themen wie Beziehungsängsten oder Fremdgehen anzunehmen. Doch auch die Puzzle-Komponente kann sich sehen lassen: Irgendwo zwischen Sokoban, Q-Bert und einem "invertierten" Tetris fordert das Block-Schieben nicht nur die kleinen grauen Zellen, sondern auch die Fingerfertigkeit. Schade ist allerdings, dass einem die ansonsten gute (Digipad-) Steuerung immer wieder kleine Knüppel zwischen die Beine wirft, wenn man hangelt oder sich im Bildhintergrund befindet. Dass die Charaktere in der ansonsten überzeugend inszenierten Geschichte gegen Ende vernachlässigt werden, ist ebenfalls bedauerlich. Doch auch mit diesen Mankos ist Catherine ein gegen den Strom schwimmender Geheimtipp, der niemanden mit einem Faible für außergewöhnliche Spiele kalt lassen dürfte.

Конечно, искать скрытые смыслы в игре с таким количеством розовых кружев и отталкивающих аниме-персонажей — занятие довольно нелепое, но оттого еще более волнующее. В индустрии, где обычный набор киноштампов в пересказе второклассника все еще считается хорошей историей, подобная игра — как глоток свежего воздуха. А то, что сделана в Японии и оттого выглядит как порноквест для одиноких клерков, — это как раз можно и нужно перетерпеть.

Si quieres darle una oportunidad a un juego diferente con una historia que te engancha desde el principio, no lo dudes: 'Catherine' te va a seducir.

In definitiva Catherine è un titolo molto interessante e chi ama i puzzle game lo troverà certamente diverso dal solito, con una trama ammiccante e demoniaca! La varietà delle sezioni “diurne” poteva essere certamente maggiore e più movimentata, ma questo è un appunto personale e “occidentale” sullo stile complessivo. Grazie agli 8 finali che propone, il gioco si farà anche rigiocare senza problemi, a patto che la vostra abilità e pazienza sia abbastanza elevata. A concorrere al giudizio finale c'è anche la componente collezionistica: la versione in mio possesso, la "Love is Over" da collezione è davvero bellissima e contiene, in una gustosa confezione cartonata stile pizza, le mutande a pois del protagonista, una maglietta "Empty", un artbook con le immagini esclusive di Catherine e una federa con l'immagine della piccante biondina!

Attention, Catherine est un véritable ovni qui ne plaira pas à tout le monde ! Mais ceux qui prendront la peine de se plonger dans son scénario et de se creuser la tête sur ses énigmes trouveront un jeu d'excellente qualité et particulièrement addictif. Que vous l'adoriez ou que vous le détestiez, une chose est certaine, ce titre ne vous laissera pas indifférent !

Catherine certainly isn’t perfect but it’s a bold attempt to ignore all accepted wisdom about what a video game should be and what it should talk about. In that sense it’s a huge success and we found ourselves utterly engrossed in the whole experience.

It's certainly not awful, but too many aspects of Catherine felt like they were actively trying to push me away. More variety in the gameplay would have helped, as would more meaningful interactions with the game's cast. As it stands, the coolest thing about Catherine is that there really isn't anything else out there like it. If that's enough for you, you'll probably have a better time with the game than I did.
