Review: Catherine: Full Body – The Ultimate Version Of A Surreal Cult Classic

A Rare Vintage.

One of our absolute favourite games from the last console generation, Atlus’ Catherine is a sublimely stylish mix of visual novel, dating simulation and fiendish block tower puzzler that tells a captivatingly warped story whilst constantly challenging its players with its clever and rewarding platform puzzle elements. Originally released back in 2011, it arrives here on Switch in this upgraded Catherine: Full Body edition which beefs up the base game with a brand new character woven into the story, five new endings, new cutscenes, lighting and texture upgrades, a remix mode, online versus and a safety mode that allows players to sit back and enjoy the story side of things. It is, in short, the ultimate version of a surreal cult classic, and it’s one that looks and plays absolutely beautifully on Switch.

In Catherine: Full Body you assume the role of Vincent Brooks, a terminally stressed out, sweating mess of a systems engineer who, aged 32, has so far managed to avoid any real adult responsibility, spending his days working and his nights drinking with his knuckleheaded pals at the Stray Sheep bar. However time, it seems, is running out for dear Vincent and his bachelor ways as his long-term girlfriend, Katherine, announces she’s pregnant and ready to take the next big step in their relationship.
