IGN- Remember Me Review

IGN:Remember Me is a likeable, even admirable game that tells a deeply personal story in a thoughtfully-fashioned world populated by richly detailed character models. But ultimately, it failed to challenge or excite me as a game, as all of its best ideas are confined to its overarching fiction rather than its gameplay. I rarely felt like a Memory Hunter except for the few Memory Remix sections. I’d love to spend time in this world sampling its fiction and tasting some of its ideas, but unfortunately I can’t say the same for the game, which is very forgettable.

The story is too old to be commented.

I was hoping this game would be good, still wanna try it

It's IGN. I'll never understand why a person who claims to love video games find any value in a review. Never put any faith into an opinion from a person who gets paid to offer them.

In short...play and decide for yourself. Pretty sure anyone can afford the $3 it takes to rent a game. Considering they can afford the console and HDTV said games get played on.

IGN is one of the most terrible website about videogame. Their review are pretty lame and it's pretty clear most of them are mediocre gamer.

I don't care about their score, I'm just sad they are so popular.

Haules1539d ago

Reviews are useless...
Playing it and it pretty good reminds me of Oni!

"Reviews are useless"

Uh-huh...tell that to all the folks who nag about Uncharted 2 and Uncharted 3's reviews, and that how it's the highest rated PS3 game thus far. And to top it off, those people will go on a rampage when The Last of Us reviews come out.

What is wrong with N4G users nowadays? It's like you guys are bipolar: One minute you guys love IGN and their reviews, the next minute you guys hate them with an utmost passion. Proof? Here's my comment regarding IGN's review regarding Bioshock Infinite.

When I posted that I would wait for other review scores other than IGN's, I got over 60 disagrees regarding how IGN tend to exaggerate their scores A LOT.

turgore1539d ago

Reviews ARE important. I won't waste either my time or money playing a mediocre game. However, it is important to not base an opinion on ONE review.

JP13691539d ago

"Reviews are useless", say the people commenting on a thread directly linked to a review.

Aery1539d ago

@dasbeer88:
I don't wanna be rude with anybody and I respect every opinion and persons, but I know how they work and I have my reasons to say that.

Just DON'T trust in gaming website like Ign, Gamespot, Edge, Eurogamer ...

Then, if people enjoy website like that, I'm fine with you.

:)

LastDance1539d ago

maybe they didnt want a small girl to be able to block against robots? That sounds more original to me

Dont call a game bland and then offer generic suggestions

wishingW3L1539d ago

IGN is popular because they cater to the mainstream and because they are deep in cahoots with game publishers which are the ones that cover their expenses through advertisements. But to me this game always looked bad though, only the graphics looked good....

NJShadow1539d ago

I saw the gameplay before this review, and it looked pretty terrible, if you ask me. Besides, a review is just that, a review. Take it or leave it, you're not forced to share the same opinion.

And FYI, I was paid at one time to write game reviews, and it never swayed my opinion one bit, and we never buckled to that kind of pressure.

What CAN cause pressure is when you see the reviews from other sites already, and you wonder if there's something wrong with yourself because you didn't have the same kind of experience.

Again, a review is a review. It's one person's opinion. If you don't typically agree with that person's opinions on games, then you probably shouldn't take that review seriously.

pixelsword1539d ago (Edited 1539d ago )

IGN tends to rate any game starring a woman low when she isn't a D-cup; like how they gave Mirror's Edge a 7.3/7.4 on consoles and 8.5 on PC.

Downtown boogey1539d ago

Deciding for yourself is counterintuitive when it comes to "judging a review"

DOMination-1539d ago

Nobody on n4g had a problem with ign when it was giving 9s to Twisted Metal and Starhawk if all games. I wonder why!

This game always looked terrible. The only reason why people cared about it was because it used to be a ps3 exclusive.

DeltaCanuckian1539d ago

They may be able to afford renting a game, but not everyone has the OPTION to rent a game. For me, Rogers Video, Blockbuster... they're all gone. GameFly doesn't ship to Canada. Redbox is my only option, and the pickings are rather slim there...

Reviews shouldn't be used as a 'be all, end all' thing, but there is value in looking at multiple reviews to see what flaws the game may have and to get an idea if it's worth spending full price to get the game.

DigitalAnalog1539d ago

"What is wrong with N4G users nowadays? It's like you guys are bipolar:"

You know what's ironic, is that the argument can be attributed to how "bipolar" your stance is. Is it not that the site has differing "reviewers" and thereby must be judged by their content rather than judging the SITE as a whole? Remember how 9.0 in one game didn't make sense to a 7.0 in another? See how "bi-polar" the argument go in both ways?

So which is it? That the site must have a universal score system or do we go by the judge the score by the "reviewer"? You can't have your cake and eat it all you know?

HiddenMission1539d ago

@dasbeer88

I think it's funny that you bring in Uncharted a critical, retail and fan success IP into a thread that has nothing to do with this.

IGN has been known to lie, omit details, steal other writers content and copy and paste reviews from one console to another. IGN hasn't been a credible scoring site in over 5 years...I know I've been following them since they 1st started and I've seen them spiral down to a really bad place.

Last little shot back the 1st review came in and The Last of Us is a 10/10...and just so you know Remember me is getting between 7 and 9's across the board so doesn't it raise a flag when IGN's review is so far off from what most have given Remember Me?

3-4-51539d ago

The best reviews come from the players. They are the most honest and right to the point. They are also sometimes worthless because of fanboyism...

I like to read a 1 positive 1 negative and 1 in the middle review from professional, then about 4-5 from players and then check the forums to see other people's opinions and ask certain questions.

Once I've done that and other research, then I make a purchase.

SpaceGhost1538d ago

Yup, my friend always uses it as an excuse not to play games, my biggest complaint is, what is the reviewers preferred game to play? what is his favorite game of all time? if reviewers started doing that I would take a little bit more stalk in what they say.

raytraceme1539d ago

Most others are giving it a 7 One review shouldnt make up your decision. This game looks fresh and I can't wait to try it out though I tend to favor story over gameplay and like easy games.

Bigpappy1539d ago

I agree with you because you plainly stated why you would still buy the game. I know of many who would rate a game higher on story over gameplay. I am NOT one of those gamers, but I can definitely appreciate a good story.

I am a gameplay first and foremost type of gamer. I also enjoy exciting events with in a story more so than the overall driving story. I get excited when the events have surprises and discovery. This is probably you The Elder scrolls series is my favorite of all time and why I still consider Morrowind 'the greatest game ever made'.

LOGICWINS1539d ago

@Havok- I'll never understand why people who don't put faith in IGN reviews(or reviews in general) comment in review articles telling people to ignore reviews. If reviews don't matter to you, why are you here in the first place?

PockyKing1539d ago

Because the internet has nothing better to do than complain about anything and everything. I bet half the people don't even read the review here, just look at the score than say oh it's IGN.

Give the game a 10 and people yell, give the game a 5 and use more of the scale, people yell and say they weren't paid enough. It's a lose lose situation for just about every site out there.

LOGICWINS1539d ago

Its a perspective issue. People are going into reviews wanting the reviewer to confirm pre-existing beliefs as opposed to hearing the reviewers opinion. Sad. N4G will never improve if people keep thinking like this.

Imalwaysright1539d ago

So now gamers can't come to a GAME related website saying in the COMMENT section that we shouldn't put much weight on a GAME review because is nothing more than another person's opinion and might not reflect our own? Something that is even more important to say when talking about new IPs?

I thought this was a website where we should be allowed to post our opinions, free of arrogant people that think they are the judge of what can and cannot be posted be on the comment section. Don't lke a a comment, ignore that person, disagree or take bubble but don't come saying what we can or cannot post on the comment section.

mediate-this1538d ago (Edited 1538d ago )

Well it is an opinionated driven site, so reading the article and the user can give their opinion on what they read.

I will read multiple reviews and even watch gameplay videos on you tube to gauge a judgment.

Yeah I wanna play it more than ever now, im into those futuristic sci-fi dystopian settings like Blade Runner, Akira, Deus Ex, Metropolis.

This review sounded more like a high 6 low 7, than a 5.9

fredrikpedersen1539d ago

What I would have written: "Remember Me is forgettable"

Yeah, Im a master wordsmith

We will build statues in your name to honor your sublime wordsmithery. :)

showtimefolks1539d ago

here we go again so a game doesn't get a good review score so it has to be IGN, this game isn't that good or interesting. There is a reason sony gave up the rights to the game after funding the development early on

this is nothing more than a 6-7/10 kind of a game and good summer rental, nothing less nothing more

just because its a new IP doesn't automatically mean its gonna be a great game, and i thought the same about dishonored, the reason dishonored got so much positive press was because it was a new IP in a time where there were all sequels, i can't wait for dishonored 2 but the 1st game was a good not great game IMO

When the hell did this game come out? Was there any tv advertising for it? Whether this game is good or bad is irrelavent if no one knows about it.

gamer421539d ago

no, it comes out on june 4th in North America, but reviewers get early access to it for reviews.
