Sony’s PlayStation Plus is a subscription-based service that allows members to get weekly and monthly access to discounted games on the PlayStation Network, as well as the occasional free game. Sony has calculated that the $50/year service has granted thousands of dollars in savings.
Everyone loves free games, but nobody likes a free game that’s a piece of HDD-hogging garbage. “In PlayStation Plus We Trust” is a weekly feature outlining the new free addition(s) to the Instant Game Collection to help you decide whether that newest freebie in the Store is worth your time.
Remember Me – PS3
In a world where memories are bought, sold, altered, and stolen, Nilin, a member of the resistance group known as the Errorists, fights for her survival in Neo-Paris in the Year 2084 after having her memory almost entirely erased.
With a combo based combat system with finishing moves that have you overloading a persons mind with memories, platforming sections that offer ways to get off the required path, and an interesting story revolving around the fragility and importance of the memory, I simply didn’t want to put down the controller. All of the aforementioned qualities don’t all mesh as well as you’d like them to, and at a few pointed the plot did have me a little bit confused as to why I was targeting a certain character, but all in all I really loved my time with Remember Me. Anyone that enjoyed playing Enslaved: Oddyssey to the West should definitely grab this game while it is free.
On my play-through I finished the game on hard mode (which they call Memory Hunter mode,) with a 94% completion rate for all of the collectables scattered around the 8 chapters. It easily took over ten hours to complete and I was able to grab 68% of the trophies during the single play-though. While Remember Me isn’t a perfect game, it is definitely worth the space on your HDD as a free game perk from Playstation Plus.
