Catherine (Review) -Unfinished-

Back in 2011,Atlus latest game they kept on advertising was a game that went by the name of Catherine.Along with the...Interesting ''Love Is Over'' edition,knowing that the Persona Team was behind it got me interested...But I was broke at the time,so I let the game go until I felt ready for it.

The Story is actually very untypical of a video game as well;Vincent has been with his girlfriend Katherine for 5 years.However,Katherine is starting to feel a bit impatient at her boyfriend's lack of ambition and even starts urging him to upgrade their relationship (as in marriage),causing the latter to feel pressured about it.So pressured,he gets himself drunk;so pressured,he finds himself easily seduced by the admittedly very sexy Catherine and...You know.The next morning,he finds himself in his room, having just woke up from a terrifying nightmare he can't remember...with a naked Catherine sleeping next to him;This is the beginning of a harsh week of successive freak-outs,and deadly nightmares...
