Catherine: The first 15 minutes

Catherine: The first 15 minutes

The 17th saw the released of the eagerly awaited Catherine from Atlus. It's an action-adventure puzzle game that is above all aimed at adults. It's also worth mentioning that even on easy this game is hard as hell, it's a real challenge. Videos of the beginning of the game inside.
Update: Disturbing Gameplay video added!

Uploading another video as I type and it's very disturbing. Vincent is being chasing by a huge butt with a tongue and a giant baby. :D This game is amazing if not ridiculously HARD!

The gameplay seems more suited to a PSP game, no?

No...you'd never get the atmosphere or tension on a handheld.

I was curious about this game so i played the demo, but unfortunately it doesn't feel like a full-price game. The gameplay felt more like a mini-game collection.

EDIT: Too bad they came up with this...thing...instead of a sequel to the awesomeness that was Persona 4.

Lol why? Gameplay is fine. People were just expecting something else of this.

It's a puzzle/platform game, instead of a rpg. I welcome it's *freshness*. Plus it seems to have a great story, with some great characters. Game is supposed to last 20 hours, and with diffrent endings, doesnt sound like minigame collection at all.

Many thanks for the videos, now i wait for the day ATLUS USA, announces it, so i can import :D

I don't know, i just don't like puzzle/platform games like this as a full-price game. I probably would've liked this game as a 5 euro game without the great story and great characters. No, it's not my cup of tea. And you're right, i expected something else of this. So right now i feel like all their talent was wasted. I wish they used it to make Persona 5.

It's simple don't like it don't buy it. Their talent certainly wasn't wasted for me, seems to be a great game.

Persona 5 is coming for sure, and i welcome they doing a complete diffrent game in between.
Then people complain industry is filled with sequels after sequels. We had, P3, P3 FES, P4, P3portable, Persona 1 and 2 now launched on PSP, there's been plenty personas over the last years.

There might have been a lot of Persona releases these past years, but unfortunately all remakes or portable re-releases. And despite that the last "new" persona game was released in Japan just 2,5 years ago, it was released on the PS2. The day i finally could get my hands on it in Europe, the Xbox 360 was already on the market for more than 3 years, and the PS3 for 2 years. Kind of disappointing, despite it being a great game.

Anyway, some Japanese publishers love to make tons of remakes/re-releases before making a sequel or new IP (Yes, i'm looking at you Square Enix!). But i agree, i also welcome they do a complete different game. They did with Catherine and i was curious, but it turns out to be not really my thing. I hope others will enjoy Catherine though, while i patiently await a new next-gen Persona game.

Nice art in this game but the game itself is certainly not worthy of a full price release. It's a 400 point XBLA game at best.

Waiting for my import in the mail :p

I understand it, this game certainly isn't for everyone.

And don't worry, Persona 5 is coming i'm sure. And despite some people not enjoying catherine it's their first HD game on ps3/360, and it points (hopefully) for a release of Persona 5 in those consoles, i hope so. :p

Wow, very interesting and creative game design, and i mainly only favor violence and shooters, but this is extremely intriguing!!

Oke so a simple adventure game ,with fucking weird shit going on......ill pass.
Commented on 2011-02-18 17:13:52
Weird game, nothing like persona 3 or 4.

Well it wasn't meant to be like P3 or 4. However game structure is very similar to P3.

Nobody should be surprised how this game turned out, there has been plenty of news around the net for months now.

Although the actual gameplay is tedious at times I may still pick it up just for the story and anime style.

Plus supporting Altus is always a good cause :D

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker quests, which is a goddamn shame, a goddamn shame. For sure they could have come up with some meaningful side quests with at least a story. (45 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Definitely enjoying FFXV more but I am solely talking about the story missions, some good diversity there. I also really like the Chocobos. Just such a shame that the side quests truly are all fetch (46 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I just think it's a pretty bad sign if a new game can't generate interest on a free weekend. The fact that there are other new games is not a very compelling excuse imo. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Black Ops is also the most popular Call of Duty sub-brand now. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Also, even WD2 and Dishonered 2 sold much less than the previous games in their series. Same for CoD:IW, very few games that got released this Holiday season sold more than their predecessors. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts electric devices, entertainment devices, etc. So who has that much money left that isn't reserved for Christmas perparation and gifts?! All around bad timing, hence why I believe Spring would be right (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Then you have the fact that by now people's wallets are hurting. And many people buyed new consoles, PS4 Base or Pro, and XB1 S. Plus Holiday season sells a lot of other things like clothes, PC parts, (2 Hours ago)
