Catalina deserves more screentime in this game


Recommended Posts

Not sure how many people will agree, but I felt that the game's storyline would have been better had Catalina appeared more often. After all, she is the main antagonist of the game (and the only female antagonist as well), and it would have been much more interesting to learn more about her crime life, especially her leadership with the Colombian Cartel. Also, I'm probably alone when I say this, but as much as I enjoyed killing her at the end, I still felt her death was a bit anti-climatic. I was expecting her to put up a real fight against the main character and get a much more satisfying death. I think Catalina should have appeared in more missions in this game so we could see more of her badass moments here.

Lol now @Evil empire comes and says "Catalina is a fictional character in a game which is already made". (No Offense dude)

I'm not that predictable. 31.gif


I agree it would have been cool if Catalina appeared more oftenly but I appreciate the final fight.

I dunno. I get how more storytelling about Catalina would have helped make the narrative feel more traditional and/or cinematic, but I've always liked the sort of meandering nature of the plot of GTA3 - one which is irreverent towards everything going on inside its world, even when it comes to its own story. It gets to it when it gets to it, and I think it comes off more authentic and realistic for it.

I agree with you. I also wanted to learn more about her past, including how she started her hate on men.

I actually agree, as great of a storyline as GTA III really has. I honestly don’t think it would’ve hurt in the slightest bit. :)

While I don't necessarily think that she should've had more screen time, I would've appreciated her being the drive force for more obstacles that Claude faces. For instance, making her be the reason behind Salvatore's betrayal would've added more to her role as the antagonist, in which she would've managed to figure out that Claude works for Salvatore somehow, and thus offering the latter an alliance between the cartel and the Leones at the expense of Claude's life.


Similarly to how Dimitri's role is written in GTA IV. The only physical appearance he had post betrayal is during the ending, but his actions spoke for him better than what screen time can possibly offer.

She totally does, what I would do in Definitive Edition, is actually put few missions before introduction showing the trip she had with Claude that lasted 9 years before they came to Liberty City, one mission could be preparing for and bank heist, one mission could be some crazy getaway from either cops or criminals (Obviously Catalina got them into the trouble LOL), and the last mission should really be the infamous last bank job they did in which she shots him, and then we get Introduction cutscene.

Or those missions could be throwback missions that Claude remembers from time to time.


This way we could be getting more background to both Catalina, and her relationship with Claude, which obviously by the end got worse, she became more bitchy towards the Claude and their final Bank Heist.
