Bright Memory: Infinite Review

Introduction

Bright Memory is a lightning-fast fusion of the FPS and action genres, created by a one-man development studio. Combine a wide variety of skills and abilities to unleash dazzling combo attacks. SRO (Supernatural Science Research Organisation) agent Shelia’s adventure is about to begin.

Review

It’s the year 2036, SRO agent Shelia has been tasked with investigating a mysterious black hole which has appeared in the skies over the world. It is soon discovered that these strange occurrences are connected to an archaic mystery; an unknown history of two worlds, about to come to light…

A very fast-paced and action-packed short game. The gameplay was seamless, and with the various abilities and weapons to choose from, there was never any time to stop and think too long about which to use – it was a lot of on-the-spot decision making and reactions.

There are a few quick time events, so be ready with the controller at all times. I got caught out once where I had put the controller down as I thought it was safe… it wasn’t.

I really enjoyed this; it had an interesting story that unfolds as you play; the music, atmosphere and simple colouring just adds to the immersion. 

I played the game on easy, as I usually do, and even on the easiest difficulty it was still challenging – the bosses still took some time to defeat, and I still died, a handful of times . The bosses, obviously, get more challenging as you play through the game, and even on easy, this was no walk in the park.

There are four guns; Assault Rifle, Shotgun, Handgun and Sniper Rifle – along with the sword you have from the start. The weapons, your Exo Unit Arm (which allows you to use abilities), as well as the sword can be upgraded with Reliquaries that are found throughout the game.

You start the game with the Assault Rifle and sword; the other weapons are found automatically as you progress. The guns you come across can be customised with a variety of ammunitions; choose between incendiary bombs, sticky grenades, homing missiles, and more to suit your situation. 

Apart from the rage-inducing challenge of achieving that wanted platinum trophy, the only other downside, in my opinion, was that the game was too short.

Rating

Rating: 7 out of 10.

Pros:

  • Action-packed
  • Interesting story and characters
  • Immersive

Cons:

  • Too short for the type of game
  • Very challenging to obtain the platinum trophy
  • A little glitchy at times

Summary

Highly recommend checking this game out – very enjoyable and though short, it still had a well thought-out story. If there is ever a sequel, I will be playing it.
