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...
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...
Review: Remember Me entertains, but does not retain
17 June 2013
Excerpt: On the surface, Remember Me seems like just another shallow sci-fi adventure: a futuristic title set in a war-torn world now being rebuilt by governments working hand in hand with massive corporations – in this case, MEMORIZE, a corporation that has managed to turn one's memory into a commodity.
Excerpt: I had a conversation a while ago about film history and how it relates to video games. A lot of people seem to think that the current software generation is roughly analogous to the 1940s, where the medium got its first big signature works and found its teeth.
Summary: Remember Me is a solid action-platformer that manages to achieve something rare in the action genre, and that’s to actually be interesting. The game is by no means perfect, with some episodes weaker than others and some encounters being too much of a slog, but in the end, it’s an enjoyable...
Remember Me steals multiple identities to find its own (review)
3 June 2013
Conclusion: Remember Me is a game of ups and downs. It’s sometimes frustrating and sometimes monotonous, but it also transports you to an amazing world with striking designs, a deep culture, and interesting characters.
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 h...
Cons: Identity confusion As mentioned, Remember Me borrows elements from Rocksteady Studios’ Batman series. In addition to Sensen Fury, the way you leap over enemies to avoid their hits — telegraphed by exclamation points over their heads — is the same. Players can’t counter moves, but they can evade t...
Excerpt: During Remember Me , you’ll travel through cities and extravagant buildings almost indescribable in their beauty, but you’ll also visit starkly depressing prisons and oppressive slums and shantytowns. When the credits roll, you’ll feel the contrast even further.
Pros: + Probably the most stylish game we’ve seen on an Xbox console., + Combo Lab and Memory Remixes make for intriguing fights and plot points, respectively.
Cons: ? When are those Jax dolls going to be invented? We want one!
Conclusion: Concept: An action adventure game set in a 2084 version of Paris featuring some unique combat mechanics
Graphics: The art direction is good, but a neon-lit Neo Paris teases you from the background and makes you wish you could explore the environments more
Sound: This soundtrack gets the job done,...
