Remember Me is coming to PlayStation Plus as part of this week’s PS Store update, giving every Plus subscriber the opportunity to contribute to WeView this week – so there’s no excuse not to comment!
I’ve only just re-subscribed to PlayStation Plus and one of the main reasons for doing so was down to the inclusion of Remember Me in October’s Instant Game Collection. It’s one of those games which I’ve been keeping my eye on for a while, secretly wishing to purchase, so I’m quite excited to download the game tomorrow.
Remember Me released to extremely mixed reviews, with a varied range of scores, from 5s to 9s. It currently sits at a respectable 73 on Metacritic.
Peter reviewed the game and gave it a solid 8/10. He was quite a fan of the game’s protagonist Nilin saying she “has the perfect blend of confused vulnerability and re-emerging fighting spirit to make her a fantastic protagonist”.
He later went on to say that “the world of Remember Me is believable, largely thanks to the very smart marriage between familiar Parisian architectural landmarks and futuristic, neon styling”. This Neo Paris setting is Remember Me’s biggest attraction for me too, personally.
Of course Remember Me wasn’t without flaws. Peter criticised the repeating waves of enemies which “feel like they’re just increasing longevity”.
Remember Me surprises in many pleasant ways as its fast-paced action beats play out. Although the narrative is perhaps a little predictable in places, it does have a few twists along the way that should be enough to keep you guessing right up to a final, titanic showdown inside a very alien environment.
Now it’s over to you – what did you think of Remember Me? Be sure to give the game either a Buy It, Bargain Bin It, Rent It or Avoid It rating. As usual you have until Sunday evening to write your mini-reviews, and we’ll collate all the comments into Monday’s verdict article. If you’re getting the game with Plus this week you’ll have plenty of time to get down your initial impressions of Remember Me.
