-Combo systems fails due to deluge of enemies
-No Backtracking for collectibles
-Weird Camera Angles
Thankfully, this game is short. You finish it before any of it's problems really annoy you. But there are plenty that the developers tried to cove up. THe combo system was only half thought out, as it's nearly impossible to string together combos when you have a group of more than 3 enemies.This is made worse by the camera doing it's own thing at times.
THe game gives you the IDEA that it may be at least a semi-open world, but very early you realize it's not. Almost every door, shop, room is labeled on screen, but you really can't interact with anything that the game doesn't want you too. You can only hang on ledges that follow the path, jump to platforms that the game wants you too, etc. You are guided along by waypoints that keep you to the linear path... except when the waypoints are oddly just not there. This is especially problematic when collecting powerups. YOu have to explore a little to find the "hidden" areas, but if you explore too far in the wrong direction the game locks you out of the area and you just miss the collectibles.
The controls are very loose, getting Nillin to run in a straight line or jump in a direction you want is frustrating at times. This makes aiming and evading in combat even more difficult. And some of the special powers are so pointless they are forced to be used to make them seem important. (i.e. Once you get the Spammer, you no longer just open doors, you have to shoot EVERY. SINGLE. LOCK.)
The story was decent... but it goes one boss too far. The final fight was unneccessary and added nothing to the game.
Hopefully, any sequels will work out the kinks that were in this one...
Remember Me: Oh, I'll remember you alright cause this game is so frustrating!!!!! It has decent graphics, really interesting sound, good story, and by far the best thing about this game is the memory stuff especially the ability to rewind memories, manipulating them to suit your current needs. Without a doubt this is the best feature of RM!! And now the absolute worst thing about Remember Me, absolutely the most annoying aspect of an otherwise good game.......THE CONTROLS!!!!! DID THEY NOT BETA TEST THIS GAME!!! I MEAN, REALLY!!!! This game, has without a doubt, the most frustrating controls ever!!! The most annoying two aspects of this problem is, 1. Your avatar will walk no matter if you are touching the controls or not. My idiot avatar would routinely just walk off a building or into a deadly swamp without me doing a thing!!! 2. Trying to get her to just walk straight is a huge chore!! For some reason they decided to create this game with the most uncontrollable controls. This almost, almost ruined the game for me, but I like a challenge so I'm sticking with it. And one last thing, could you have made the "Pressons" more confusing?!?!?!? I still don't know how they work!!!! I have been just randomly putting them here and there until the numbers go up. Is that how it works?!?!? I just don't know. Rent this title if you must, but , be prepared to be driven mad by shoddy, sub standard game design. Next time bring your A game, I mean, really!!! DO NOT BUY FOR ANY REASON!!
