Summary: For the first hour or so, Remember Me seems like it could be one of the best "come out of nowhere" great games to come around in a long time. It is gorgeous looking, features fantastic music, and an interesting overall concept that draws you in almost immediately. The further into it you play, however, the more that illusion fades and Remember Me's reality as a shallow, repetitive, and frankly boring experience that never reaches its full potential becomes clear.
Remember Me steals multiple identities to find its own (review)

Excerpt: Memories define who we are. They shape our futures and influence our decisions. They can also be the source of tremendous pain. If we could wipe away the bad and keep only the good, who would we be? That’s the kind of question the action-adventure game Remember Me (out tomorrow for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC) seeks to answer through the setting of Neo-Paris in the year 2084.
Pros: An immersive sci-fi world Remember Me’s opening moments are a powerful way to start out the game. As a disoriented Nilin staggers around the confinement facility, the camera follows her every unsteady movement, creating a sense of dizziness. Everything is a little too bright, and she encounters horror after horror: white rooms that house delirious inmates, a machine that rips the memories out of people’s heads, and even a menacing “coercive” robot that hunts down esca...
Summary: " Remember Me " has a great story, with some fantastic ideas, undermined by the fact it leans too heavily on what it does poorly. If every level ended with a memory reconstruction, rather than a tedious boss fight this could have been one of my favourite games of the year but, as it is, this is a game I will only remember for its novel concept.
Excerpt: The balance between story and gameplay easily makes or breaks a game. A simple storyline needs gameplay that makes up that balance; providing bang for buck. Conversely, too many side quests and faffing about with fancy inventories can leave the player not only forgetting what their next objective is, but why they should care.
Intriguing sci-fi game has sex, violence, and profanity.

Summary: Parents need to know Remember Me is an action/adventure game with mature themes. It takes place in a disturbing future, with mutant-like humans crawling around, who you must fight; plus, the game has some sexual imagery (topless women) and strong profanity. While it's not one of the worst games out there, it has scenes with excessive combat and "memory" sequences with bloody scenes.
Conclusion: To conclude, Remember Me is a game which plays its plot and mechanics safe; it does not overuse its puzzles, or boss fights, or overcomplicate its combat system with new mechanics too frequently. Its plot could be a story from the universe of Ghost in the Shell or something like Gen Urobochi’s Psycho-Pass.
