REMEMBER ME offers a unique story, a female protagonist you care about, and gorgeous graphics. While the combat can get a little repetitive -- yes, even with the customizable moves -- the ability to enter people’s memories and “remix" them is a fun puzzle-like element. You’ll watch part of a scene play out -– a stored memory inside someone’s head –- and then rewind and fast-forward through the scene to look for the right objects to interact with (highlighted in red), and then make adjustments based on the objective. After you’ve scrubbed through the scene, it’ll play out differently each time, which could work in your favor or not. You might need to go back and try different approaches until you get it right.
Unfortunately, the game limits your movement far too much. You’re kept on a very tight leash, with prompts on where to go throughout the various indoor and outdoor set pieces. In other words, there’s very little ability to veer off your predetermined path, which hurts the game’s suspension of disbelief, and replayability. Other small beefs: the camera can also obscure your view at times, and it’s not unusual for half of Nilin’s body to temporarily disappear through an object, such as a ladder or storefront window. Overall, however, Remember Me is a refreshingly fun new game –- that isn’t a sequel or based on a familiar intellectual property, such as a movie or book. Sci-fi fans in particular will likely find this 10+ hour adventure worth remembering, warts and all.
