The game of Remember Me is gorgeous, the city of Neo-Paris is begging for exploration but sadly the game does not allow you to do so. The camera angles are badly placed in certain parts of the game, which will irritate you. The combat system are not too bad, but the simplified version of chaining combos on hordes of enemies can become tedious, counter-attacking is not present in the game as you need to dodge out of the way before the blow lands on you. The key highlight of the game - memory remixes, only 4 of those present throughout the game. It does not allow you to control protagonist directly, instead it is just a mini-game of trial and error. Get the game on sale.

Feels confined and cramped, they could've done more with the futuristic environment, instead you are stuck in corridors, doesn't really feel futuristic other than a robot or two thrown here and there.

Remember Me is destined to be overlooked, which is sad. One thing is for sure: It is a true underrated gem.
I'm about mid-way in the game, and it is a fantastic and hypnotic game, captivating me with it's beautiful and heavily detailed world. The setting is the first thing you'll notice; vivid, unconventional colors blot this world, and it is a feast for the eyes.
Combat works and plays out like Batman, but not quite as fluid. The ability to change up your combos makes for a refreshing experience each time. Enemies are can be quite tough in numbers--especially when they differ in types, forcing you to use different tactics for various enemies. Button mashing won't get you very far.
The platforming and exploration are the weakest links, as they are far too scripted. You never get a sense that you're in immediate danger from scaling walls. And exploration is so linear, so confined, which is a shame considering Neo-Paris is a major sight to behold.
Memory Remixes are the star of Remember Me, setting it apart from other action/adventure games. Basically, you can hack into peoples memories and alter things, changing the outcome of their behavior. It's fun to mess around and experiment. Not to mention, the memory remixes give great insight into Nilin's character; you really get a sense that she is conflicted with the ethics of what she is doing, which, in my opinion, makes her a very human character to which we can relate.
The story... I won't elaborate about it. You really need to experience it for yourself because it will blow you away. Some of the writing is awful, though. But most of it works.
Overall, fantastic game. The story and lore are the strongest aspects. The game play is, for the most part, solid. Remember Me gets an 80/100 for me

This game isn't bad, but it isn't good either. I was looking forward to the game as I was very excited to use the memory remix feature and I even thought that it'd be a massive part of the game, well it isn't there are only 4 which was massively disappointing. That said I think the combo making system is fun and I hope that it is used again in future games if this kind, which there are a lot of, If you really want a game like this, try Batman.
Awesome Capcom ever !!FreakDeity | June 5, 2013 | See all FreakDeity's reviews »
As the credits roll on this 11 hour journey, I’m pleasantly surprised to see such a great title come out of a brand new studio. The team at DONTNOD Entertainment have brought something unique to the table, giving us not only beautiful graphics and incredible sound, but also a new combat approach wrapped around a very engaging storyline.

It is one of the most anticipated games this summer, but can also be one of the great disappointments, promised great things at the time of its announcement, but has finally become an action-adventure release far less inspired than it is expected. Not a bad game, but it is far from what looked like might hold at the time of its announcement. The valuable point plot is buried under several mechanics that just do not work, but the art direction and some more or less innovative mechanics are interesting.
