Bright Memory Infinite Review (PlayStation 5)

For this Bright Memory Infinite Review, we go into the future where it is the year 2036, a strange phenomenon for which scientists can find no explanation occurred in the skies around the world. The Supernatural Science Research Organization (SRO) has sent agents out to various regions to investigate this phenomenon. It is soon discovered that these strange occurrences are connected to an archaic mystery – an as-of-yet unknown history of two worlds, about to come to light…

Man, these games just look ridiculously nice don’t they!? The locations are picture postcards and then you add in the fast-paced gun combat with a slice of melee and you have yourself another entry in the Bright Memory Infinite franchise. The deal is you get to slide, jump and shoot your way out of trouble. The game plays just like all the others which are both good and bad, the combat is just so silky smooth even when adding in aerial combos and brutal melee executions. The speed does periodically suffer from stuttering or slowdown and it is noticeable but it does give you a chance to blink! The guns all feel different, they take some getting used to ss they are quite clunky. With your melee weapon you can deflect bullets back to sender but the Ai is not that great and the opportunity to do this is far and few between. In fact, it’s the Ai that spoils a lot of the game as they are either crap and just shoot from distance, and the closer you get the fewer actions they do to the other side where one sees you somehow and the whole screen fills up with deadly sniper shots from all angles. Frustrating and can be managed but it just makes the game’s message a blurred one, one minute it’s a silky Shadow Warrior-style action game to the next where it is just frustrating with weird Ai algorithms. The gore is top moth mind, cut limbs off and watch them fly, be warned that you cannot turn it off so it’s all or nothing I’m afraid. After finishing the game I came away thinking that it is basically the last game but with different locations and if anything the combat was not as good? Middle of the road but still a good-looking game with impressive set pieces but middling nits in between.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
