Excerpt: Memento Mori 2: Guardians of Immortality Centauri Productions No longer (seemingly) Russian and French, Max and Lara are back, at least for a short moment. We find them newly married and chilling out in Cape Town, when a call comes to look into an art theft at a local museum.
Excerpt: Memento Mori 2: Guardians of Immortality from Centauri Production is the long-awaited sequel to the original Memento Mori released in 2009 by the same developer. The game's title is derived from the Latin phrase memento mori that literally means "remember to die".
Conclusion: The game utilizes a percentile scoring system to grade your performance during each act, affecting your outcome for the endings depending on how well you did. Several factors will determine the outcome of your journey, skill and beliefs being instrumental.
Memento Mori 2: Guardians of Immortality Review – PC/Steam
21 June 2014
Excerpt: Morte. Tod. Muerto. Mori. All of these words have one thing in common…Death. This is the very foundation upon which the PC release of Memento Mori 2: Guardians of Immortality is founded on as Max and Lara return once again to embark on their most interesting and creepy adventure yet.
Excerpt: I don’t often fall asleep while playing games, but Memento Mori 2 has the dubious honour of switching out my lights after about half an hour. Thankfully things do improve as you plunge deeper, but this is seriously one of the most tedious beginnings to a game since Assassin’s Creed 3.
Pros: Nice graphics, Occasionally fun, Quite long (or just feels it?)
Cons: Plot takes ages to get going, Some stupid solutions, Awkward dialogue and acting
Conclusion: Clocking in at over a dozen hours, this is a lengthy adventure but it feels like it too. There’s enjoyment to be had in places, but for a story about murder and mystery, Memento Mori 2really drags at times.
Excerpt: Early on in the game, you’re trying to find out more information on a ship that sunk almost a century ago. Recently, some historic goods were recovered from the wreck by a museum, and then were promptly stolen, so you want to question whoever the original owners might be.
Memento Mori 2: Guardians Of immortality – Review (PC)
22 May 2014
Excerpt: A bit of disclosure to begin with so there’s no confusion. I’ve not played Memento Mori 1 at all so I don’t really know how the sequel holds up to the original. Also, due to technical difficulties I don’t think I’m too far into this one.
Summary: Some adventure games are epic journeys across varying locales. Memento Mori 2: Guardians of Immortality tries to be. It tries to tell a Da Vinci Code -esque story of murder and intrigue with clues hidden in artwork and a quasi-religious journey spanning several countries.
Pros: A handful of puzzles are interesting
Cons: Lackluster writing is worsened by a bad translation, Most puzzles are boring, Audio bugs and quirks make bad acting even worse, Animations never look natural
