Catherine Full Body adds new story and game modes, making the game more fun to play. The cutscenes give us a story that is deeply rooted in people's hearts, and the sokoban parts are interesting too.

Catherine remains a talented caricature of a hysterical, impossible man's moral frailty and romantic insecurity. Characters and complications introduced by Full Body, however, lack the connective tissue and social maturity to support its expanded ambition. A (now optional!) tower-climbing puzzle game fused with a supernatural infidelity meditation, even in its spiraling convolution, still survives as a provocative oddity.

A fascinating adventure that, thanks to the depth of its narrative and branching paths, can be experienced and re-experienced numerous times without losing its charm.

The price tag is a little daunting, though. I can’t help but feel like $40 would be a better price, since paying a full $60 for a game you’ve already played before is a bit of a hard sell. I’d recommend waiting for a sale, though if you’re a super-fan of Catherine and want it now, don’t let me stop you.

I honestly can't fault Catherine: Full Body and if you're a proponent of games as art then this is definitely a game for you. It's a stunning achievement and one that I'm glad to have played through.

With Catherine: Full Body, it feels like Atlus was trying to find an acceptable midpoint between remake and remaster.

If you can look past that, though, there are new story elements here that help to enhance and develop its existing characters to make them feel more relatable. If not, well, at least the puzzles are awesome.

A fantastic puzzle game hides underneath an interesting, engaging story. There's plenty here to warrant another look, and if you skipped it before, don't pass it over this time.

The new additions to Catherine: Full Body are mostly a win, with sharper graphics, more complex puzzles (and better hand-holding for players intimidated by them), and more background on Katherine in particular. Where it lacks though is in the new romance route, which is awkwardly shoehorned in and feels too separated from the rest of the story. Still, for Catherine fans, Full Body has enough nightmare-inducing goodness to make it worth another round 'til last call.

Catherine: Full Body is a laudable remaster. It introduces a new route through a well orchestrated twist, but if you don't want to take it you will find again the same psychological attention and character development. The game is a sincere work about the man and its bonds and will to overcome adversities. You should give it a chance if you don't have played on previous generation, but this time even the original players may find a reason to come back to block-climbing.

Catherine: Full Body has aged like the finest of wines. For fans of the story, the new characters and plot threads fold in fantastically after an awkward start, and they're coupled with a wealth of new dialogue and beautifully animated cutscenes. For fans of the gameplay, new remixed levels and difficulty options add brand new challenges for even the most hardcore Catherine enthusiasts, and with support for the game's niche competitive scene to boot. And if you've never played the game before, all of these additions make an already classic video game even more of a must-play experience.

Catherine: Full Body has more interesting things to say about relationships that are dragged down by a story too cynical to let it shine.
