Remember Me Review
Posted: A year ago, last updated 7 weeks ago.
You start without your memories and work to recover her lost memories. You do this by exploring, climbing and fighting. In specific Memory Remix sequences, you reconstruct the memories of the people you meet. Here you play god, in changing their perception reality. There's an easy power in this process. One you can't avoid. But one that raises interesting questions over who writes history and how we construct our view of the world.
The game may seem repetitive and overly hand-holding to more experienced players. But for beginners in these experiences, it helpfully leads you through each step of the way. It's from the same developer as Life Is Strange and offers ideas of rewinding memories that came to fruition in that smaller and more intimate story.
This game has been rated PEGI 16+.
ESRB MATURE with Blood, Partial Nudity, Strong Language, Violence. Players punch and kick enemies during melee combat and use a futuristic gun-like weapon called a “Spammer” against robots. Battles are accompanied by punching sounds, laser fire, slow-motion and screen-shaking effects. Some of the game's violence takes place during characters' memory “remixes,” which are presented as cutscenes that can be manipulated by changing certain elements. Memories include a character shooting a woman; a character shooting himself; a man removing a child's memories, which causes her to lose consciousness. Blood splatter effects and pools of blood sometimes appear in cutscenes; corpses are sometimes depicted in pools of blood during gameplay. Players occasionally come across posters depicting topless women or nude cabaret girls with partially exposed buttocks. Female leper-like figures are also occasionally shown topless. The words “f**k,” “sh*t,” and “a*shole” appear in the dialogue.
