‘Remember Me’ by Capcom [VIDEO GAME REVIEW]

Should you get it?

Answer: Sure, why not.

Here’s why.

In a nutshell, the ‘memory remix’ feature is one of the most brilliant ideas in any video game I’ve seen in a long, long time. It’s a puzzle element where you access a memory of one of the characters and, fast-forwarding and rewinding a specific memory, you can change their memory to affect how they treat you or what they’re doing. I know, it sounds a little confusing as far as the storyline goes, but I had so much fun doing this when the opportunity first came up – which wasn’t very far into the game.

You’re right, it is a little like Inception, but not exactly.

Lemme try to explain using the first scenario without spoiling any of the game. You’re in a memory of a woman who sees a man (husband? boyfriend? I don’t remember) through a glass wall where a doctor is administrating medication. You can ‘memory remix’ the scene so the doctor injects the wrong meds and, before that, you undo one of his wrist restraints to make him choke the doctor. Stuff like that. If you fail along the way, no problem, just rewind it and try other triggers until you get it right.

Seriously, the entire game could just be different scenarios using this puzzle and I’d be happy.

The rest of the game is fine, too. It starts off as you, playing a female, who lost most of her memory and, before it’s wiped out completely, you escape in hopes to find out what the hell is going on. Beat up bad guys along the way using custom combos (another cool feature!) and jump and climb around the city. It plays a lot like the new Prince of Persia games which is a good thing. Place markers all along the way so if you get lost, just look out for those help icons to point you in the right direction. The camera isn’t too annoying, either. Always a positive in any game like this.

I’d say pick it up. It’s unique enough.

Remember Me is developed by DONTNOD Entertainment and published by Capcom.
It’s available for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
Rated M for Mature
