Catherine Review

Fans of the RPG series Shin Megami Tensei - Persona will already know how well Atlus can put together intricate inter-personal relationships and to craft exciting - although somewhat quirky stories. With Catherine, the company have produced the world's first Horror-Relationship-sim, role-playing game. How does that even work? And then consider that most of the game is played in Nightmares where men who cheat on their partners are turned into Sheep. Hmmm...

But the development team have crafted a compelling story that melds RPG elements with puzzle-game gameplay and relationship management, all in an Adventure-like format. The game isn't really an Adventure per se, but its strong story and compelling characters make it a title that most Advenutre Game fans will want to experience. Read all about the absurdity here
