titleThe action-adventure genre has been getting a decent amount of attention lately with the Batman Arkham games as well as more recent titles like Tomb Raider and Devil May Cry. Remember Me is a title in this same mold from Capcom and Dontnod Entertainment that looks to balance the standard mix of platforming, exploration and combat along with a few unique tricks up its sleeve to deliver us an entertaining experience in a sci-fi dystopia based around the interesting concept of memory transfer. Will this offering prove memorable or fall flat in its attempt? Join me as we take a look.

This is Neo-Paris, 2084. Dealing with the fallout of war and the advent of memory sharing technology, a global conglomerate known as Memorize has taken a monopoly of the technology. Remember Me opens with the main character, Nilin, imprisoned in the Bastille Fortress and having just undergone an almost complete memory wipe. Dazed and confused, you are shuttled through the halls to a device that will ultimately wipe your mind clean.

RememberMe 1

It is at this seemingly unavoidable end you are contacted by a mysterious voice that guides you towards escape and your horrible fate. It appears not everyone is content with Memorize’s monopoly and a faction known as the Errorists exists to topple the might conglomerate for its less then ethical actions. With this mysterious stranger, known only as Edge, you escape the Bastille.

RememberMe 2

As it turns out Nilin was no simple prisoner, known as a memory hunter, she had not only the ability to steal memories from the minds of others but the unique talent to remix and change them at her will. This power simply made her too dangerous of a foe for Memorize to deal with. With this newly imparted knowledge, it is up to Nilin and you to assist Edge in toppling the mighty Memorize.

After seeing the cover of this game for the first time, my though was.."Remember Me, not sure how I could forget with dat ass front and center like that !"

I'd also like to add in for anyone here that may be interested or just loves good music, Dontnod is hosting a music remix competition with Remember Me's soundtrack.

"Dontnod Entertainment—the developer for the Capcom-published action game—has filed for bankruptcy, according to various French video game news sites."

Bummer. I've been playing this recently and really, really enjoying it.

I thought it was a very neat concept. Unfortunately the game bounced around in development hell, had 2 different publishers and was completely redesigned halfway through and went way over budget. This seemed inevitable but it still sucks.
