Catherine: Full Body
Catherine: Full Body offers a fresh new way to experience the 2011 PS3 classic with new twists and surprises galore.
Still one of the few video games to deal with love and relationships in anything like a realistic manner, but the attempts to shoehorn in an extra new character fall flat.
Catherine: Full Body is still insightful, still troubling
The Full Body remaster of Catherine shows that its unique blend of action-puzzling and adult themes still holds up after almost a decade, even if its big new addition doesn't quite fit in.
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.
Like any good relationship, Catherine: Full Body is worth sticking with for its positive qualities. There will be hardships and sometimes you’ll cringe at what’s going on, but there are few other titles that display adult themes with as much nuance in addition to being a tough, but satisfying puzzle game.
Catherine: Fully Body contains many of the blemishes from the original but doubles down on the amount of puzzles, which is a net gain. If you already had your fill though, you may as well catch up on some of the new endings and call it a day.
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 is a great review option for the 2012 title. A fresh and original proposal that will please both those who enjoy now for the first time, and those who already try their day, with a lot of visual and playable improvements.
