    2064: Read Only Memories is an excellent cyberpunk adventure for anyone looking for a point-and-click title inspired by games like Snatcher. Don't forget the catchy soundtrack.

    It’s so purely fun. It’s a thrilling, charming, and humorous game that celebrates many positive things at once with an almost childlike innocence, all while containing a deep mystery that has you constantly thirsting for more information. After a difficult past year, it’s the type of thing that is sorely needed right now as we tackle this one with newfound resolve and hope. 2064: Read Only Memories, with its contemporary and thought-provoking themes, accessibility through its diverse and rich characters, and beautiful story about what it means to be human, is an uplifting experience that I’ll remember for years to come.

    2064: Read Only Memories presents an interesting, if not predictable, narrative that is propelled by its strong cast of characters and excellent world-building. It’s refreshing to see a developer put so much care into creating a cast as diverse and interesting as this.

    2064: Read Only Memories tells a haunting story in a stylish way. Its diverse roster of characters, intriguing world, and masterful soundtrack make for an engaging experience from beginning to end. While there are some minor storytelling and structural hiccups, it nevertheless successfully combines a classic genre with modern trimmings.

    2064: Read Only Memories has a fascinating world full of potential for great stories, but spends a lot of time focusing on things that aren’t as novel as its best parts.

    Through its creative cast and interesting interactions, 2064 brings its pixel art world to life. Despite a few technical hitches, 2064: Read Only Memories is a step forward in the way games interact and intersect with politics and how storytelling in games can make a statement in today’s climate.

    2064: Read Only Memories is a great game for anyone who agrees 100% with what its heavy-handed, politically-charged plot forces down your throat without question. However, like a political conversation on social media, 2064 is long-winded, overly aggressive in its message, ill-presented, and accomplishes nothing.

    Taking place in the year 2064, in the city of Neo San-Francisco, 2064: Read Only Memories tells a story of intrigue and identity as the possible existence of the first sapient artificial life leads the player down a path of danger as they strive to figure out who is hunting this robot, and why.

    With clever, sharp dialogue and characterisation that defies expectations and the labourious rhythm of standard video game dialogue and development, 2064: Read Only Memories incorporates both the history of cyberpunk fiction with inspiration from the experiences of the LGBT+ community in the United States to tell a unique story of identity and self-actualization.

    Combining this with its bright, cheerful aesthetic and excellent sense of humour that ensures its points are never too heavy handed, 2064: Read Only Memories is one of the best graphic adventure games to be released in the last 15 years.

I forgot I bought it and was pleasantly surprised with how much I enjoyed the overall apeal of the game. I did have some dificulties with sections, but that didn't ruin my experience.
    I will that this game does kind of have a niche group of people who will enjoy it. Due to the types of characters and how the game playes in general. I and a good friend of mine enjoyed it fully.

    I turn down the lights, fire up the game, and what do I get? Pure unadulterated crap. The game is flawed in every way. The controls areI turn down the lights, fire up the game, and what do I get? Pure unadulterated crap. The game is flawed in every way. The controls are stiff and not responsive, which for this type of game seems like a huge setback from the get go. Now the setting is "cyberpunk" which is hardly noticeable other than the color pallet being neon colors. The tone of the world isn't cyberpunk which yet another huge let down. Feels like you are being told that "this is cyberpunk" and doesn't really fit in the whole fifth element, shadowrun feel you would normally come to expect from a game claiming to have a cyber punk vibe. It really seems like a game you would only enjoy on drugs, but you are really only enjoying the high of the drugs and the game is just there. Expand

I'm a big fan of cyberpunk games. I play a lot of VA-11 HALL-A... which is a point and click game where you play as a bartender.
