GIZORAMA - The most recent Sci-Fi title that inspired me and filled me with awe was Square Enix’s Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Its daunting Blade Runner-esque atmosphere and addictive gameplay kept me coming back for more. Remember Me grabbed me by the horns when Capcom showed it off at Gamescom 2012. Sadly, when it comes to being a video game, Remember Me falls short in almost every category possible.
Remember Me takes place in the year 2084 in a futuristic Paris called Neo Paris. The protagonist Nihilin, Neo Paris’ most wanted fugitive, is lifelessly lying in a porcelain white jail cell. Her memories have been stripped from her, and she is mere minutes away from being lobotomized as she uncontrollably walks down a winding path to a machine. When a stranger named Edge saves her, Nihilin decides to become an Errorist Agent, and side herself with Edge in order to take down Memorize: the corporation that put her behind bars and save the people of Neo Paris. 2/5
