Single Player Games Provide Many of the Most Memorable Moments in Gamedom
While I’m mostly interested in covering multiplayer games from time-to-time I do polish off single player games. Whenever I do, I will write a review of the game I’ve just played and leave it here.
The first entry in Single Player Games is Remember Me by Dontnod Entertainment. You play as Nilin, a former elite memory hunter with the ability to break into people’s minds and steal or even alter their memories. She was captured by the authorities, had her mind erased but managed to escape. While she re-learns her formidable fighting moves she heads back to the prison that once held her to get back her digitized memories and thus her identity.
The futuristic setting is in Neo-Paris 2084. An age where personal memories can be digitized, bought, sold and traded.
My overall impression was good. Intriguing story. Loads of atmosphere that smacks of a french-style Blade Runner. Interesting hand-to-hand combat that can be crafted as you like as well as special powers and a weapon called the Spammer that is a refreshing departure from the guns I usually use in the first/third person shooters I play.
