My disappointment with Remember Me



So, I haven't finished Remember Me. It came out like two months ago, I know, what the hell am I doing?

Here's what.

I'm still interested in the story. I think it sounds fascinating. I still was interested in the art and the visual parts of the game. 

I fuckin' hate the combat. Like, if I did all other parts of the game, I'd be fine, but the combat is clunky and I failed so many times it took me four times as long to get through simple combat. I am slow on combat in general, and have trouble following combos (and the combos are so unclear in this game!).

It's bad enough that I'm considering asking +John Sheldon to play through it for me while I watch, since it's not an incredibly long game and I want to see the rest of the story. 

I'm just so disappointed. I wanted this game to succeed. The marketing was too little and the execution isn't good enough. It makes me angry because this game had a lot of good going for it in the beginning and because they could have made a big impact if the game had just been better and if they'd marketed more effectively. 

Sigh.
