11-11: Memories Retold is a refreshing figure among graphic adventures that are strongly bound by narrative and that deviate from the traditional point & click gameplay. Aardman Studios provides a plot that will draw players’ attention from the beginning to the very end, all of it mixed with one of the bests OST that can be found within videogames.
A game about war for those who don't like the shooting and drama of most war-games. This game shows the feelings of ordinary people during a war. I really liked that you can play with a Canadian as well as with a German. There are many side-quests and collectibles and different story options so the game has a high replay-value.
It's not the most engrossing narrative I've ever experienced, but it's certainly incredibly memorable. I enjoyed all of my time with 11-11: Memories Retold and can heartily recommend it to the narrative adventure fans, or anyone who just wants to see a game rendered in an incredibly unique art style. I can't wait to see what kind of game Aardman makes next.
When it comes together, whether in moments of high drama and urgent choices or in the quiet interludes that follow, 11-11 draws you deep into the lives of these men. When it misses the mark, whether through an implausible coincidence, a throwaway puzzle or tedious collectible, it can push you away and cause the surrounding narrative beats to fall flat.
Even though visually pretty, I found the game lacking serious depth when it came to the story, and consider that there were not enough points in the game for me to emotionally connect to either of the characters. When you take into consideration that plot twist is very predictable and that the game can be finished in less than one day, this game does offer a different perspective on the WWI from the other games currently on the market, but it won’t leave a lasting impression on you, it will become just a fleeting memory.
Juego infravalorado, un título bélico atípico que muestra la cara mas humana de la guerra, que permite ponerte en la piel de ambos combatientes y como el paso del tiempo los va uniendo en una serie de decisiones que afectarán al trascurso de la historia. El estilo visual al óleo llama mucho la atención, banda sonora e historia muy buena. Totalmente recomendable jugarlo
Storytelling is impressive. Dubbings are successful (especialy Elijah Wood). The sound and art design is great. BUT Gameplay mechanics is not what I want. The puzzle structure is very simple. The animations are insufficient. AS A RESULT, 11-11 Memories Retold is an interesting game with its story, its narrative style.
I liked the plot and the dramatic scenes. It's a good game overall. I can't put more score, just because it's too small and lacks gameplay mechanics. It's very common to the Villain Hearts, but guess what - Villain Heart is a AAA game comparing to this.
