Remember Me

So far I both love and hate this game. What I love the most is the world its set in, a futuristic Neo-Paris that is Blade Runner-esque in the best sense. It’s a joy to explore this city. I also really dig the interface, the cybernetics that you use to interact in the world, as well as the whole memory control system. What has been driving me nuts are some of the battles, which are just not fun. You’re often stuck running around in circles waiting for one of your powers to “ready” itself, and although the build-your-own combo system is interesting, executing those long combos is an exercise in frustration. I think I’m more than halfway through, and I do want to get to the end to see more of the world, but I wish I didn’t have to deal with the annoying bits.
