Mini Review: Remember Me

A missed opportunity. One might assume from the description that it’s a game based around a unique mechanic for changing the past by remixing memories. Unfortunately, 60% of the game is combo-based button mashing beat 'em up, 35% is linear platforming where the game tells you exactly where to go with no alternative routes. The memory remixing happens 4 times in the entire game. It’s an original idea, with novel but terrible controls. The camera is constantly in the way during platforming, and the character movement walking around is clunky on both mouse & controller. Frequent frame rate drops, plot holes, visual bugs and frustrating combat ruin what could have been a great story game.
