REMEMBER ME [M]
Xbox 360/PS3/PC, $89.95 ★★★ A futuristic Paris setting; an era in which biometric implants allow human memories to be uploaded and controlled by a nefarious corporation; a heroine struck by amnesia and left with hints of her shadowed past. Without a doubt, Remember Me has a genuinely intriguing premise. Unfortunately, the combination of a tedious combat system and painfully linear level design makes for an experience that doesn’t rise to meet the game’s lofty ideas. One for sci-fi fans who favour narrative over gameplay. Out now.
