    This game has a great storyline with a lot of endings, and the gameplay is a good mix of Dating sim and one of the best puzzles that humanity has invented.

    Catherine is a fantastic game, and it being on more platforms is great news, even if it doesn’t offer any new content or relevant new features.

    This game is absolutely terrible. 2/10 for the puzzle aspect, although puzzles that have time limit are actually an excercise in frustration. You cannot stop and think, you need to sort them out RIGHT NOW BECAUSE THE CLOCK IS TICKING. No, this is not fun at all, so be warned if you want to go ahead with it anyway. Plus, there's the story.

You cannot stop and think, you need to sort them out RIGHT NOW BECAUSE THE CLOCK IS TICKING. No, this is not fun at all, so be warned if you want to go ahead with it anyway. Plus, there's the story. The story about a guy that wants love, but is in general dishonest with both of the girls that show interest in him and is to make a choice between them. And on top of that, there's the game mechanic that forces you to think in a conventional way of society rules. Marriage is pictured as the only possible happy outcome (despite 9 different possible endings to the game) of any relationship where people stay together, which is utter nonsense. The only way the game can end in a kind of "free" way, is completely fictional involving demons, lord of hell, goddess of love, etc. There's no possibility to just be with whoever you want to be, have kids with whoever you want and not having the choice of "either or" in front of you all the time. Monogamy screams out of this game so much that it makes me sick. Not to mention, dishonesty. The game creators didn't come up with the possibility to just tell the truth: "Look, I want to f*ck you both, you're up for it or not?". End of story. But then there would be no possibility to come up with this convoluted, dramatic, eyes-rolling, frustrating, cliche story. But I guess that's Japanese style. Sex is always perverted and shameful, relationships are always dishonest, true desires and feelings are always expressed at the end with the big effort and struggle. If you're Japanese, you'll probably like it. If you think marriage and monogamy is the only way to live your life happily, you'll probably like it. If you're a woman, you'll probably like it as well. If you're a man without complexes, that likes to set your own rules with everything, you'll find this game story rigid and boring. Use at your own risk. Expand

    Game claims unlocked frame rate however anyone with high refresh rate can tell its locked to 30 fps moving mouse cursor alone and the game play is also tied down to 30 fps the frame counter may report higher but fake frames are inserted in they do not make the game appear smoother those fake frames, i am hoping this is a bug the port quality could be far better, there is a feedback threadGame claims unlocked frame rate however anyone with high refresh rate can tell its locked to 30 fps moving mouse cursor alone and the game play is also tied down to 30 fps the frame counter may report higher but fake frames are inserted in they do not make the game appear smoother those fake frames, i am hoping this is a bug the port quality could be far better, there is a feedback thread up on steam page but not seen responses yet from devs. Expand

    Catherine Classic may not be the definitive way to experience Vincent's journey of self discovery, mainly due to some pesky technical issues, but it is a solid port nonetheless, with a few improvements of its own. Faster loading times, crisper visuals, and dual audio support, elevate the title from beyond just another bog standard PC port. It is unfortunate that English audio clips in when playing in Japanese, but Catherine is so thoughtfully designed, and so well-written that it's easy enough to endure the port's more disappointing qualities in favour of the incredible experience underneath. Catherine Classic is a great alternative to the PS3 original, if flawed.

    As a conclusion to this improved edition, Catherine: Classic brings us back a title that has already gone through the consoles of two generations. And it does not have much more improvement than seen in previous editions, apart from some graphic improvement. Still, it's still a very good game, complete, with replayability and hours. It becomes heavy in some places, because the story slows down and does not advance as fast as we would like, making the experience longer than we would expect.

    Catherine Classic is a port to PC of one of the more unique and surreal gaming experiences around. Scary, thought provoking, and beautiful to behold, Catherine combines horror, romance, puzzles and platforming into a must play experience for anyone. Highly repeatable and challenging gameplay defines this true classic cult hit that begs to be discovered and rediscovered despite outwardly obscuring its true nature behind the standard expectations of a game in this style.
