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. During the course of the story, Nilin will start remembering who she was and re-learning all the fighting moves that made her one of the world’s leading memory hunters.

The combat is bad. Dull, repetitive, and to be honest boring. I wish more moves had been animated for this game with more flexibility. It wound me up a *lot* that the QTE finishing moves for bosses of the same type are always identically animated. In fact, it was even the same QTE keys/buttons.
The platforming and puzzle solving was quite fun, a good mix of jumping around and triggering switches all over the place. This makes up about 50% of the game as you traverse through various Neo-Paris settings, significantly more than the combat, which is a good thing.
As a lot of reviews around the web have said, the memory remixing feature of this game is really the crown jewel. It plays a significant, superb role in the storyline. The downside is that there are so few opportunities to use it, about 6 times in the whole game.
I've also just read the v.short prequel e-book which goes alongside the game. It reveals some snippets of back story and alternate uses of the Sensen tech like holographic video conferencing, and explains why the S.A.B.R.E. guys don't use guns.
As a lover of sci-fi, I enjoyed both the game and the book - willing to ignore the flaws existing in both.
Now, onto the actual game it's self. I must start out by saying that the world that Dontnod Entertainment have created here is just beautiful, it's pure cyberpunk science fiction at it's finest. The environments are colourful with fantastic sci-fi architecture, mixing the old with the new in this future glimpse of paris. The level design (which very linear) is interesting, placing you everywhere from beneath Neo-Paris in the sewers to the top of the highest building where the views will make your jaw drop. The main theme of the game is that a giant corperation knwn as M3MORIZE have created a device called the Sensen that allows memories to be shared, stored and in the case of the game... stolen. I was most assuredly not disappointed with this, even after hearing about this theme I thought it would have some interesting ideas behind it but the amount of creativity gone into it is astounding. The voice acting is a bit hit and miss sometimes, but it's reasonable and luckily you character doesn't have a bad voice actress.
The story is interesting enough and in my opinion is definatily up there with games such as Spec Op: The Line.Read more ›
However, the game is quite linear without major surprises. The complexity of the game increases and new types of enemies are added to the gameplay. And that's pretty much it.
If the graphics matter very much to you, then you will probably enjoy the game very much. If you are much more interested in storylines and you expect great diversity there, then you will probably enjoy this game a bit less.
FYI, the price I paid about three years back was £19 delivered.
