Catherine: Full Body Reviews
Accessible, engaging, though-provoking, and packed full of content, Catherine: Full Body is one of those rare things: a perfect game.
I was a fan of the original Catherine, and I’m pleased to find the changes are mostly for the better. If you like puzzle games, specifically ones about finding patterns through the noise, and don’t mind potentially uncomfortable questions about mature topics, I highly recommend picking up Catherine: Full Body.
With nearly perfect gameplay and entertaining stories, Full Body will prove to be the perfect blend. If you're a new player or even just a fan of the original, Catherine has never been more worth picking up.
Catherine: Full Body gave me a truly unique experience that I haven’t had before with any video game, especially because I hadn’t played the original release. It was definitely one of the darkest and most intense stories I can remember.
Catherine: Full Body reminds me of everything I loved about Catherine while providing a new and enhanced experience.
Catherine: Full Body is the full Catherine experience and presents some of the best moments of gameplay and storytelling from any game I’ve played to date. The game’s newly added scenes and features will make it feel new to those who have played before, but if it’s your first time than you are playing the best version imaginable.
Catherine: Full Body will have everyone talking, from it’s incredibly vibrant yet gritty design, it’s fascinating tale of love, devotion, lifestyle, and deviancy. It’s risk/reward style of prodding it’s own audience into making conscious decisions, and it’s impeccable style in anime-like scenarios, that mix well with it’s incredibly challenging gameplay. Catherine: Full Body is no nightmare, but a dream come true for devoted fans of the original, and truly a welcoming experience for new fans, alike.
Catherine: Full Body is about the two extremes of adult life: commitment or freedom. The story may seem to have some holes or badly developed characters, but this is not a flaw, because the intention of the game is to become a metaphor using precisely this context of indecision and questioning that the protagonist lives. With beautiful visuals and renewed gameplay, the remastering can please both those who have tried the original title and those who will play it for the first time.

Catherine: Full Body is the epitome of re-releases, with fresh new story content and new modes to try out, everyone that missed the first time should check this release out.
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.
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.
Catherine: Full Body on Nintendo Switch is an excellent game filled with tons of variety in the puzzles, and a story that keeps you gripped until the end.
Catherine: Full Body is a complete package that's great for both newcomers and returning fans alike.
Catherine: Full Body improves upon the original in almost every way.
Catherine: Full Body is a fantastic revamp of a bonafide cult classic. With an excellent new character and several new endings slickly inserted into an already highly entertaining narrative – not to mention a slew of fun new modes – this is the definitive version of an outstanding game. If you've never played Catherine before then you're in for an absolute treat, and if you have, we'd say there's enough new content here to make it worth diving in all over again.
Catherine: Full Body has aged like a fine wine thanks to its new offerings. Not only do these add to an already great experience, but they made the game feel fresh. Rin's introduction to the storyline added a whole new dimension to the already twisted love triangle, while Remix mode did the same for the puzzles. If you haven't played Catherine before, now's a great chance to jump on the train. If you have, Catherine: Full Body is certainly worthy of the encore.
If you’ve only played the original release and have yet to experience this full-bodied edition, there’s definitely enough here to justify the purchase – especially if you’re looking to play it on the go.
In the end, I stand by it being one of the best titles last generation and strongly suggest it to anyone, especially those troubled by the looming threat of adulthood. For what it is, there are few games like that and this more than makes up for a bad choice here and there.
Catherine is a rare game - it's one that handles sex themes with maturity and nuance, and then folds gameplay elements into the narrative themes that are enhance the core narrative.
Catherine: Full Body shows how a good title can be made even better by making a series of changes to provide a new experience even for old fans. The new contents of the game are so engaging and of course fascinating that one cannot easily abandon them. In addition to the strong storyline that is highly replayable because of its numerous endings, there are other parts of the game that can entertain you for a long time
