Fair

One of the most beautiful games I've played on PS3

I don't generally offer a game praise based on its looks, but my lord, Remember Me is one of the prettiest games I've played this console generation. That's the good part. Now here's the rest:

Remember Me follows the story of Nillin, a prisoner who has had her mind wiped clean. You spend the majority of the game determining exactly why her mind was wiped, and see many pretty futuristic locales. Again, have to draw attention to just how gorgeous some of the set-pieces are in this game; it really does the job of looking like a futuristic city quite convincingly.

The music also helps it to draw you in, or at least to attempt to draw you in, and generally fits well for a fight.

Those are the two best points I can think of for this game.

Here's the rest:
The fighting system. Oh.. man.. just no. Throughout the game, you unlock combos, and can customize what effect each combo has. Yes, "effect"; you can have a combo do more damage, heal you, reduce the recharge time of special abilities, or whether it will buff previously mentioned abilities. However, the combos are always the exact same, and have no variety in their execution.

And the game has one of the most obnoxious cameras I've ever seen--while traversing Neo Tokyo, the camera is fine and quite good at conveying the grandness of the city. When in fights, it routinely will spin around to ignore whatever opponent--it's usually a boss--you're attempting to fight.

Here's a bit of a summary on the game, for those who just want that, and don't feel like reading through my rant.

Pros:
+Gorgeous game
+Fitting soundtrack
+Interesting characters
+Interesting story concept

Cons:
-Poor fighting engine
-Evil camera
-Very little depth
-Not at all engrossing or absorbing
-Terrible storytelling

Overall:
While this is not a terrible game, it tried to bite off more than it could chew. My guess is that it was released earlier than the developers anticipated, so many of its flaws are glaring.

Very Good

Don't listen to the hate, it's a solid fun time

I was interested in this gaming having seen previews and trailers about it. Once the IGN review (unfairly harsh imo) hit, I was a bit on the fence, but still wanted to try it anyways.

If you go in without incredible expectations like its supposed to be the most polished and revolutionary game of the year, you'll probably have a great time like I did. The combat is fun and engaging, the music is just fantastic and dynamic, and the setting will satisfy plenty of sci-fi needs.

Perfect

Amazing, an A for effort! A 10 where it counts.

I give it a 10 for its innovation, a 10 for its future world portrayal, a 10 for its graphics, a 10 for not being a guy with gun shooting people, I would have given the game a 10 if it had been and open world you could freely explore but I have to give it a 9 overall as the combo system is a bit confusing and distracting and the first memory altering experience could have been easier and quicker the first time around pun intended. As a former game artist and now a disabled gamer who looks for games that can take me out of my room and escape into other imaginary worlds I give this an A for effort, its part Bladerunner, Total Recall (old and new), Fifth Element and I, robot all rolled into one.
