Did reviews kill Remember Me?

Did the low review scores turn Remember Me into a must buy to a wait for the price drop game. (PC, PS3, Remember Me, Xbox 360)

This is a shame if true. I just platinum the game yesterday and I enjoyed every single second of it. The story,writing,characters,VA and the world. Everything in the game was well done.

Gamers alway complain about publishers making another dudebro fps but when they decide to make something unique. You don't buy it at launch and wait for the price to drop. You guys are the reason why games like this don't get funded...

compel me to buy it and I will.

There was nothing compelling enough about this game to warrant a purchase for me.

Im glad you enjoyed it though.

Was it really that good? I spend an even amount of time with different genres, I am a gamer. My problems is that it didn't look like a solid 3rd person action adventure. This may be attributed to some of the biased reviews, but they made great point backed up by video footage. I may get it after i've played last of us like 30 times.

I thought most of the reviews were fair and accurate. I don't think combat was as bad as most made it out to be and I enjoyed it very much. Still boggles me that they only had 4 memory remixes in the game, which is what drew me in to the game in the first place. The setting was wonderful, but the story was just alright.

Bottom line, I enjoyed it. It's a decent enjoyable game, but it isn't going to be blowing people away, and that's ok.

It's not "amazing" but its not bad by any means. It's a new studio and like most Unreal Engine titles it runs into some issues and repetitive things.

I'm still working through it, but the story and music is absolutely amazing and seems to be saving the game for me. Without those two things, I would say the game is sub par. The main girl has great voice acting, while everyone else is rather lame like a standard Capcom title.

The memory remixes are amazing, but for some reason it doesn't focus on that at all. Its the whole reason I wanted the game, not the fighting.... I'm like 40 percent through the game and its only had one or two so far....

I think the lack of advertising/hype really hurt Remember Me.

I just been waiting for it to go on sale before I buy it off Steam.

Reviews never ruin a game for me because I judge a game for myself. I dont care about review scores because at the end of the day its somebody elses opinion. I could like a game that they totaly hate and visa versa.

I enjoyed Remember me. I thpought it was fun , but the control system was slightly flawed on the PC.

According to GameFAQs, yes.
It's shocking, really... GameFAQs is a minuscule sample of the overall gaming base, but it was sad. The topics before reviews came out were all of praise:

"Yay! Capcom saved this awesome game from death"

And stuff like that. Just overall positivity with maybe one or two negative things popping through every once in a while.

Then the reviews came out and all anyone says is "Waiting for price drop."

It's insanely stupid. I bought the game even after reading the mediocre IGN review, and I am having a blast so far. It does feel a tad rough around the edges, but the rest of the game makes up for that. It's a wonderful game. :(

Makes you wonder how many of these people actually play any game that isn't praised out the butt lol

Think about all the people bashing games that use the same examples as everyone else. You can tell some people just copy and paste, while others just watch a Youtube play through or something. Sure there are a few that actually go play the game, but think about it. Once a game gets cheap, suddenly people are going "this game is so overlooked!!!" Why? Because they finally played it themselves.

getting through it as we speak, and can say that I absolutely love the concept, very ambitious and refreshingly original...However it has some of the stiffest and most unsatisfying combat I've seen in some time.

game doesn't worth 70$ i'm charged at my place..not aven regular 60$... it's plain boring.
SatanSki  +   457d ago
Exactly. I like the setting but somehow i cant force myself to continue playing
elhebbo16  +   457d ago
I dont even know what the game is about tbh. the advertisment in capcoms part really sucked.
KillrateOmega  +   457d ago
The only reason I didn't buy it is because I'm slowing down on buying current-gen games in preparation for the next-gen.

I don't want to spend more money, on top of all the pre-orders that I've paid off, for a game I might not get around to completely playing through. Right now, I'm trying to get full achievements on ALL of my other games and there's a lot of them :P

I was waiting for it to come to the PS4, but now with the mediocre reviews, I may not get it at all.
tigertron  +   457d ago
I've got a massive backlog right now, and I'm currently playing TLOU and all my PS Plus games, so Remember me is pretty low on my list. I might pick it up just before the PS4 comes out.

I guess the four previous publishers that rejected the game were right all along.

I only saw a video of the first half hour and found the gameplay repetitive. So yes, I'm interested about the story, but waiting for a price reduction.

And as tigertron above said, I also have a huge backlog and The Last of Us is being fucking awesome! So I can wait.

I would've bought this if it was open world. Been watching LPer video of it and it really does seem it should be open world. Shame it wasnt.
