Kathy Rain: Directors Cut Review - A return in the 90s

Kathy Rain: Directors review

Its easy to identify with Kathy Rain. She is cynical, drives a motorcycle and is a creature of the 90s. Full disclosure, I can also have a weak for her since my girlfriend of the same name is a creature of the 90s, which she wore a leather jacket and dyes hair in the same way (not to mention the fact that they both wore bandanas around the neck). But I go astray.

Kathy Rain: Directors Cut is an adventure point-click the debut of the PC. Some might say that it reminds Gabriel Knight games while others might think its a mashup (with perhaps flying) emissions like Twin Peaks. In both cases, it is clear from the pixel Art and the general atmosphere that it is a game that you want you as if you were back in 1995. He succeeds most of the time, and 5 years later, the Directors Cut is here to help you.

For those who discover the game, the intrigue is the show of the show here. Without spoiling, the game sees Kathy conducting an investigation into his childhood city. You will study along Coma and the death of his grandfather and the circumstances that followed it. You will talk to people, take notes, solve puzzles and unlock new dialogue options as you go, allowing you to gather the weaving of who said what, does what and whats really going on. The story will see Kathy facing his demons and even touching the supernatural, without losing sight of it as a character with luggage, and will offer many great support characters along the way.

The idea in the game releases that there is a cup of the director (by looking at you, Ghost of Sushi), where a game manager has created a completely cooked and programmed content that was originally in the game but which was then excised, its absurd. Just say it. The films are cut to adapt to the desired broadcast times in the cinemas, and the cup of a director was the film planned before the editors do not need to ensure maximum viability at the box office. It does not work this way with the games.

As is often the case, the cut content includes visual improvements here such as support for wide screens, more voice dialogues, changes to enigmas and extended stories sequences. All well considered, it is the final edition of the game you should play. The fans of the original may or may not worry about some subsequent changes of the game, but I appreciated it. These additions will of course be perceptible only if you have played a lot to the original version, so that newcomers will jump directly into an integrated and more expanded experience.

Solve the mystery of a small town

Gameplay side is unchanged. You are traveling between areas on your Kicks motorcycle, interact with as many objects as you can, add items to your inventory, and discover something that blocks your progress and needs to be solved. Whether its a few non-cooperative cops or a combination with a lock that you need to find, its always a pleasant level of challenge. For some puzzles, you will really need to think about the good sequence or the right combination of object interactions to continue.

As mentioned, new discoveries are added to Kathys notepad, giving you the impression of being a journalist because any new information can be used as questioning line on other characters, or even on characters from the city ​​with which you have already spoken. Its a nice touch at a time to help you keep track of what is happening and as an immersive device to allow you to play the role of a journalist in leather jacket.

Kathy Rain: Directors Cut is definitely editing the game that any novice person in the title should play. It refines the original, retains the original characterization, extends part of the plot and adds improvements in quality of life that contribute greatly to this short adventure. If you want an adventure game that fucks the old nostalgia of the 90s and VHS tapes, look no further.
