Neo-Paris. 2084.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.
- Play as Nilin - an elite memory hunter with a clouded past – Become the most wanted memory hunter in Neo-Paris and experience the power to break into peoples’ minds to steal their memories. Gain the information you need directly from people’s heads, to complete your missions and recover your own memory.
- Memory Remix - This innovative new gameplay mechanic allows players to use Nilin’s powers and alter parts of people’s memories in real-time gameplay. This will change characters’ complete perspective on their self-image and the people around them, which can have grave consequences for the world in 2084.
- A balanced mix of combat and exploration - Fight your way through the different environments Neo-Paris has to offer, using Nilin’s profciency in martial arts, as both hunter and prey!

The gameplay is very simple and consists of button presses which is one of the better features within the game. The combos are neatly illustrated at the bottom of the screen. This lets the player know exactly where they are in their combo and different combos can be tried through the S-Pressen system within a menu. How you do deploy pressens within the interface is very clunky, jumbled and just more irritating than it should be. There are a number of different elements to Nillin's disposal and these are power or red combos, recharge combos which are purple, health combos which are yellow and multiplier combos which are blue. The combos all work well, although player choice is somewhat limited given that different pressens have to be unlocked and that the combos are already assigned and only the pressen combo can be modified rather than the actual button combinations. There are no weapons to speak of in the game and the combat is all hand to hand. Nillin also possesses some unique powers which can turn robots to your side or another power has a devastating attack with multipliers. The different powers are fun and they all have their uses for various combat situations. It's perhaps a bit discouraging that there are no weapons to some but the combat on the whole is one of the better elements within the game, even if it is on the easy side.
Remember Me also features certain sequences where memories are changed by the player. The game really delivers on its unique nature here but the sequences are too short and ultimately do not appear as much as they should. There is no online play with the title but that's not really a bad thing because Remember Me is story driven and any multiplayer component would likely have been no better than adequate.
Graphics 9 - Some good environments and the game looks crisp and clean throughout.
Sound 4 - Average voice acting with a bad script. The music is good in spots such as within combat and aims for a futuristic feel in which it delivers. The musical score is still overall very average though.
Gameplay 7 - Simple but fun. There isn't much depth to it but it works fine.
Lifespan 4 - An 8-10 hour campaign but it's probably not one you're likely to revisit.
Remember Me attempts to deliver a compelling story but it just does not live up to expectations. There are some good ideas here but the game does not really develop them nearly enough, it doesn't help that the story is cliche at times and cringe inducing at others. When Remember Me is centred on its story and it's average, then the game as a whole also falls into that category. For its current price, Remember Me is an okay option and you will not feel ripped off as you would have done if paying full price for it. However, there are much better games in this sort of area on previous generation systems such as Second Sight. Remember Me feels like a game that is only halfway done. A mediocre title, that could have been much better.
The visual design is quite amazing and the storyline is genuinely unique and interesting.
It has a Batman-like combat style...used in many games since Batman...but adds a rhythmic element to it ("press X now")
However the rhythmic element is not forced on you, it only gives you a bonus. You can play it freely.
Besides punching and kicking you also have special combat abilities, like planting a bomb on a nearby enemy or hacking a robot.
It includes platforming and the occasional puzzle gameplay where you get to alter people's memories, which was simplistic but fun.
The boss fights were very challenging and frustrating because you could only beat them in very specific ways.
The only thing that annoyed me was that the camera angles were sometimes very awkward and "in your way".
However most melee-based action games tend to have this problem.
A highly underrated game, I don't think it got the marketing support it deserved.
The combat whilst nowhere near the level of some (Batman AA), can hold its own but can get a tad stale at times but most games in the same vein as this one often do. Good story too, if a bit linear.
If you play games for the achievements then this game has a good mix. Some collectable related and difficulty rated. The hardest difficulty (Memory Hunter Mode) is not that hard for the average gamer and shouldn't pose too much of a problem.
Chapter select is also good for taking the stress away from missing some of the more vague achievements.
Overall a good game worth a play through or two!
Therefore, I highly recommend this game, a perfect match between strategic beat' em up, platform and cinematic involvement with the story line when 'remixing' some key characters' memory. A must for every sci-fi fan.
