The demo for Atlus' Catherine came out earlier this week, at at least one of our commenters considers it a highly polished piece of crap. Voice your agreement or defend your enjoyment with commenter MonkeyChunks in today's Speak Up on Kotaku.
Today I played Atlus' Catherine demo. I think it is a very well made, shiny turd.
I am not sure whether Japanese designed the game, or some American people, but their pop culture and theology references are so bad, it's not even funny. There is a scene where "dudes" are sitting at sort of Irish looking bar/restaurant place and their looks is just so anime-manga that I couldn't always tell if it's a chick or a dude. Then you get to dream sequences and there are all sorts of references to Catholicism such as bell tolls, demons, halos or horns. Anyone play this demo junk?
