How we rate the games?
Remember me is a 3rd person action game. Before we begin, if you have played Tomb Raider or Assassin's Creed, don't buy this game. It is just a bad reincarnation of these two games and it sucked. Let's start reviewing the game so we get a better idea what is going on.
It looks like the same developers are doing the same games, even though we are talking about very different companies and it is very weird. The game sucked and it barely gave anything new to the gameplay. The developers are striving to create new games, repeating for years the exact same movements, ideas, objectives and just combining them. It is clear that this game is a mixture of Tomb Raider and Assassin's Creed with some other mix from other games. This is really bad and boring. Looking at the game you might be amazed at how beautiful the graphics are, but the gameplay is repeated so much and you will barely find any new stuff.
The graphics were really good, there is no deny, but you will find better graphics in some other games which are somewhat similar. Remember Me gives nothing new to graphics, being just a repeated artwork from other games. Without some exceptions like the user interface, the game didn't seem to give something that at least would make the player like the game. I have to say that I am addicted to Tomb Raider games, but this one was such a boring, copy of the last Tomb Raider, which was boring too! What is even worse, the game still used DirectX 9 in 2013, so if you buy a powerful graphics card which supports DirectX 11, you won't be using it and you will have to go 3 generations back. (from 11 to 10.1, to 10 and than to 9, but lets hope it's 9.c)
The gameplay is the most boring part of the game. You just attack enemies here and than, jump to rooftops, crawl to places and create combos. A lot of gamers are disappointed from this game and I will tell you that when I watched the gameplay, the game looked so amazing. You just attack and attack, jump and kick, find some boring secrets which can be found with eyes closed and your enemies are so dull that every enemy feels like the exact same, with the exception of some more powerful who need more kicks to be defeated. The only thing which was somewhat innovative, was the jump. It was realistic but you can't do anything with this new animation anyway. The bad news here is that, if you pay for the game, the developers will continue to make such bad games.
Optimization was very good with the exceptions of some bad camera rotations which simply didn't get the angle and kept on rotating. I have not seen any game where more than two enemies attack you at once so I guess the combat system was the best in class for today's technology. The commands worked right and didn't find anything bad at all. I disliked the upgrade combos screen because it was somewhat weird and difficult to understand even though the design interface was very easy to understand. When talking about the graphics optimization, it was bad because it still uses the amazing DirectX 9 which dates back from December 2002 if we are talking about the first version.
The idea of the game was not really new. I laughed when I saw that someone had the same clothes as Ezio Auditore and this stuff is being repeated even in clothing. From all clothing in the world, they choose to use the exact same as Ezio. The idea was not even a mix, because there would have been knifes, or going around cities from Assassin's Creed or have weapons since the beginning like Tomb Raider. The story was not even new, because we have seen so many stuff like this, where someone else tries to help the heroine, that I can't even tell why they did this. If you think the story was great, than lucky you, seriously.
Overall the game was very boring and didn't have something to make you go on playing. At first it might look amazing, but it becomes so repetitive and is just a bad mixture of other games. Conclusion: Don't buy this game.
