Critic Reviews for Kathy Rain

One of the best graphic adventures of recent years, with an interestingly complex main character and some enjoyable puzzles.

Kathy Rain's story is strong enough, but slow to take hold

While it still carries some common adventure game problems, Kathy Rain acts as a nice update to the genre that still looks like a product of the '90s. Adventure game veterans and newcomers should find a lot to love with this one.

No hyperbole, Kathy Rain is yet another milestone in this resurgence of old-school point-and-click adventures. It’s a fantastic thriller, a remarkably deep and adult story about grief, transition, religion, and the personal decisions that make or break us, while being an engrossing adventure game for veterans and newcomers alike.

A very good classic graphic adventure with smart puzzles and a bizarre atmosphere that goes from Nancy Drew to Twin Peaks.

Kathy Rain: DIrector’s Cut is definitely the edition of the game anyone new to the title should play. It polishes up the original, keeps the original characterization, expands some of the plot, and adds some quality of life improvements that go a long way for this short adventure. If you’ve been craving an adventure game that stokes some old nostalgia of the 90’s and VHS tapes, then look no further.

Kathy Rain: Director's Cut makes the original obsolete and still delivers a mesmerizing adventure game, although the new stuff might not be enough for fans who played it before.

For all the problems I've outlined, I haven't enjoyed an AGS adventure this much in quite some time. The end might not satisfy, but the journey is a hell of a ride.
