Personal memories can now be digitised, bought, sold and traded. The last remnants of privacy and intimacy have been swept away in what appears to be a logical progression of the explosive growth of social networks at the beginning of the 21st century. The citizens themselves have accepted this surveillance society in exchange for the comfort only smart technology can provide. This memory economy gives immense power over society to just a handful of people.
Remember Me™ is a 3rd person action adventure where players take on the role of Nilin, a former elite memory hunter with the ability to break into people’s minds and steal or even alter their memories. The authorities, fearful of her knowledge and capabilities arrested Nilin and wiped her memory clean. After her escape from prison, Nilin sets out on a mission to recover her identity, helped by her last and only friend. This search for her past leads to her being hunted by the very people that created this surveillance society.

When I started playing Remember Me I was so confident I was playing a vastly underrated game. I mean, the premise is great. You control Nillin, a "terrorist" agent who has the ability to shape other people's minds to her will, changing or completely erasing their memories. However, at the start of the game, Nillin herself has no memory whatsoever, creating a pretty good contrast. The depiction of modern society is great, too. You have the rich, "more important" class, and the poor, "complete trash" class. The rich controls the technology of memory changing and the poor are addicted to it. This would all make for a great game, but that's not the case here. Remember Me, as a game, is horrible. The combat tries to mimic that of the Arkham games but it's extremely clunky, and this shows even more as you progress through the game and the battles become harder. It's not that the game is hard, but the funky combat system will let you down a lot of times. There's also some parts where you get to change memories of other people, and these are supposed to be the high point of the game, and they are indeed nice, but happen only three or four times. The graphics are ok, considering this is an UE3 title. The art is good too, but it doesn't take long for it to become very repetitive. And the story that starts with a good premise ends up being a forgettable experience. Maybe it would be better if it was a movie.
A kind of underrated game with lots of flaws but also many good things that make it worth it. Everything gameplay related is improvable. Remember Me is kind of like a Batman Arkham game featuring a combat system based on combos and special powers by combination of buttons that works. You have control over of those combos by setting up the effect activated if you fulfill them, but the system is a bit confusing. Leaving that behind, Remember Me is a linear platform game that will remind you of the Prince of Persia Sands of Time series or more recently Tomb Raider. What doesn't work at all regarding this platforming essence is the fact that it guides you as if you were a three years old kid. It just keeps pointing everything you have to do, every ledge you have to reach and every jump you have to do. I didn't feel like I was playing myself. Everything non gameplay related is just awesome. Art design, graphics, story and anything that doesn't have to do with having the controller between your hands is worth it. Astonishing visuals and a deep storyline, ambitious but also necessary. Give it a try as soon as you can and don't mind the bad reviews. It is not a masterpiece but it is enjoyable in so many ways.
TL;DR: Remember me is a Fun action adventure game with Rich combat and a deep story with a lot of room for expansion, i'd definitely recommend this to anyone. Remember me is a Third-Person action adventure game by DONTNOD Featuring a Simple yet Deep Combat system and an amazing story. Remember Me is Placed in New Paris, or Neo-Paris, in 2084. The Premise of the story is that Memories are now Digitized and Privacy and Intimacy are no longer what they used to be now that everyone can see anything from no matter what time. The game revolves around Nilin, a Memory Hunter who awakes with all of her memories taken from her, she is saved by her fellow Memory hunters and is helped on her quest to regain her memories. The game has a large variance in Cast and characters, and everyone feels different. Overall, I'd recommend this to anyone who is looking for a Exciting and amazing experience in one of my favourite worlds this year.
A decent game through and through with familiar gameplay if you have played any of the Arkham series games. It isn't the best at anything it does but it is good. Annoyingly long boss fights and some laughably bad dialogue are the only poor takeaways from an otherwise enjoyable experience whose memory manipulation mechanic in limited parts of the story is a lot of fun and one can spend quite a bit of time just to see how the memory will unfold with the various options and changes you can make.
Before I say anything else, I'd like to apologise in advance for my English as it's not my native language. You may wonder why I choose to write in a language that isn't my own then - the answer is simply that I wish to share my thoughts with the widest public, and I wouldn't be able to achieve that in my mother tongue. With that out of the way, let's get to the game..thank you in advance for your patience! I find it hard to accept the Metascore this game received, I have found it to be one of the most thematically interesting games I've played. Imagine a future where your memories can be digitised, stored, erased, shared with those you care for: this is the future Remember Me takes you to. Sounds inviting, doesn't it? But I'm sure you're smart enough to see the risk in this. With access granted to the last remaining haven for personal privacy, corporations gain absolute power over the individual; the abuse of memory trading taints and fades identities. But not all submit. A group forms to fight the corporations: they are known as the Errorists, and this is where your journey begins. Captured and stripped of your memories, you are freed by an unexpected ally and persuaded to rejoin the cause you once fought for, determined to regain your memories and identity. Now to the gameplay: Remember Me plays as a third person action adventure with some minor platforming, and a melee combat system that borrows from the Batman: Arkham series, not without adding its own taste to it. It all flows well and never gets overly repetitive, as combos can be customised in order to regain health, deal heavier damage or power special attacks. Enemy types are sufficiently diverse and can provide a decent challenge in the higher difficulty settings, as you will often adapt your combos to the situation. Only minor hiccup is the camera, that at times follows at angles that make it hard to have a good visual of the fight. Platforming is linear, ledges and ladders you can (and must) use are highlighted. There are collectibles scattered across levels that will grant health or energy improvements, but overall the game is linear; I don't consider this a particular flaw, as the game is story-centered and linearity keeps the plot flowing at a good pace. The level design is beautiful: Neo Paris is created with meticulous attention to details, and I often found myself stopping to take it all in, or just listen to NPCs discuss about their daily trials and tribulations. The story is obviously the strong point of the game: if you were intrigued by the premise, moving forward will never feel like a chore and will not fail to catch you off guard more than once. You are in for a treat. There is one more feature I haven't brought up yet: at set points in the story, a unique power of Nilin will be revealed. You have the ability to enter people's memories. Cool? Very. Not only that: you also have the power to change them, affecting the present! This is done by interacting with different, set objects in the memory, affecting the end result. This is a great mechanic that I felt should have been fleshed out further. Imagine not having limitations on the remix, with any result you achieve having effect on the story! Still, it is a very interesting trait that already works well in the state it is given to the player in. In summary: a gripping story, a thought provoking thematic, a setting as beautiful as it is tainted, a fun combat and a unique mechanic. If any of it appeals to you, do not hesitate to immerse yourself in the not so distant future Neo Paris. And if you read this in 2084.. Remember Me.
