Here we have a game for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The game is set in future Paris (Neo-Paris) and you play as Nilin, a woman with no memories who after escaping a facility must fight to get her memories back. The biggest thing this game got going for it is the originality. The plot very is different tough at times it can get confusing.
The gameplay usually have a great flow. Tough awkward camera angles are a reoccurring annoyance and even though the game is usually clear about where you are supposed to go the camera angles can sometimes make it hard to see these directions. Another thing that is quite of a struggle is the combat, I found it to be pretty hard and even though it looked good it was not so fun to play those sequences. The main reason is because of how much time it took, some boss fights lasted almost 30 minutes and I think that is a bit excessive.
The game does have originality and like I said it is the best thing about the game, the graphics are great, the setting for the game is marvelous and they manage to incorporate many different styles throughout the game. The highlights of the game are defeating the bosses in many different settings and the remixes you do on people’s memories in the game. Remixing a memory is a little bit like Surgeon Simulator except it is in someone’s mind. They look great and they effectively make you know more about the plot.
So even though the game has its up’s and downs I think it is a must have and the game is a lot of fun, unless you get into that long time consuming fight… 8 / 10
