  1. This game could have been a LOT better. The great graphics and easy controls are no excuse for the poor voice acting and the mediocre plot. The puzzles are fair, but too much on the easy side.
  2. Memento Mori offers great visuals, great Spanish dubbing, and an interesting story. It's a shame, because it has potential to fare much better, but overall, the game delivers what it must, and users will have a great time playing one interesting point and click adventure. Ideal for newcomers to the genre.
  3. If you are looking for a brain-teasing experience full of complex puzzles to blow your mind, Memento Mori has little to offer along those lines. But if you are fan of story-driven adventures, you'll find a promising new adventure to fill your needs in this gripping psychological drama (albeit disguised as a conspiracy thriller) with one of the most shocking and memorable endings the genre has seen in a long time.
  4. Sort of a snoozer. I had trouble playing it for more than an hour without it causing me to nod off, and while I found the ending to be intriguing, it wasn't enough to make up for the basic puzzles and the basic dialogue, and the lack of interaction between the lead characters (surprisingly, they're almost never on screen at the same time).
  5. It's lengthy while not particularly exciting or fun.
  6. Gloomy cinematics promise trying ordeals, preparing us for something big and shocking. But then the end titles suddenly roll, and we are left with nothing. Oh yes, there are sacrifices, machinations, and mysteries, but they are so predictable that you can't help but sigh in disappointment.

    It's really not a bad p-and-c game at all. Pros: nice clean graphics, story-driven starts slow but better ending, all round quality in gameIt's really not a bad p-and-c game at all. Pros: nice clean graphics, story-driven starts slow but better ending, all round quality in game execution. Decent length. Cons: Puzzles are easy. Music is repetitive and backgroundy only. There is just no humour in the game at all, it is all so serious. And the subtitles have some bad mis-spellings (how did someone miss that). The major con is that it really doesn't pull you along enough to want to keep on playing. After an hour each time, you get quite bored, but come back to finish it (which at least is a better aspect). A solid p-and-c game and recommended to anyone who likes that genre. For everyone else, it might all be a bit slow and linear. Full Review »
