As Vincent, a man recently succumbed to the irresistible beauty of the game's titular diversion, players find themselves swept into a treacherous love triangle. Catherine's core themes-those of free will, of the delicate nature of relationships and the choices we make within them, marry perfectly with the intense, terror-filled gameplay that serves to accurately reflect Vincent's growing sense of anxiety. It is an experience wholly unlike any to come before it, and is certain to leave gamers talking and thinking about Vincent's tribulations long after the credits have rolled.

First I'll mention that when I got this it came with small booklet that had some concept art as well as other blurbs or excerpts about the game which was AWESOME for the price I got this at ($17) and totally unexpected. Seriously get it new, completely worth it.
Anyway, about the game. I'll be brief since there's a billion other reviews about the game.
I'm sure from the cover you can tell that it's not exactly a kids game; it's a game that's focused on the character's relationship morals and depending on your choices throughout the game your character will base his decisions on the overall moral standards of the choices.
Since this is a Shin Megami Tensei game, not everything is black and white. There's no good or bad and the 'justice' answer doesn't necessarily mean the right answer.
The character you play as (Vincent) starts off with a dilemma, relationship commitment. And this game explores that concept by throwing metaphors after metaphors as well as ridiculously tough puzzles at you that make you think outside the box.
I finished this game in 3 days (without watching other people play because according to my friends there are some LP'ers out there that really suck at this game) and those 3 days were one of my most stressful gaming experiences ever but also probably the most rewarding.
Essentially you have to climb a timed tower (the word 'timed' is used really loosely here) while pushing and pulling blocks to carve a path for yourself upward. The game for the first few puzzles will give you some strategies (if you ask around) and I like to think of it like math. You learn the basics but applying it takes skill. In order to be good at this game you can't just memorize patterns because not every situation is the same. You have to understand the basics and use that base to apply it quickly to the situation at hand because oh god, the game is NOT going to wait for you.
This game also has a challenge mode for those really out-of-box thinkers out there. Also, if you've watched other people play this game please don't use that feeling as a standard towards how you feel about this game. Watching people play doesn't give you the stress and the panic and the extreme ELATION when you actually complete the level.
Seriously though, for 17 bucks? Just get the game if you think you're an intelligent being that lacks a challenge.
The plot has the usual innovative and far-fetched style of storytelling you would come to expect from an anime. For anime lovers this is a good one to get into. It's decently short, with decent replay value. I binged and in 2 days managed to get an ending I didn't want so now I'm taking it the second time around much less emotional and much more serious about finish it how I'd like and putting it aside in my library. It definitely helped it was as cheap as it was with prime, but after having played it I would go back and buy it fresh after release.
All in all, it's a fun game to play by yourself or with a partner(if you don't mind some hilarious moments following your in game decisions and the reactions they invoke in her.) And if you aren't too into the plot or gameplay it still has plenty of other interesting things like the sheep characters and art, interesting dialogue, and cute anime faces to stair at.
I typically gravitate toward first person shooters and platformers for systems, but I get around to playing most of the "greatest hits"for each system so I think my taste is pretty broad. It seems like games have sort of become conservative in the risks ther're willing to take because of marketing and profitability concerns, so I guess what I liked most was how interesting and unique this game was for something with good production quality
