Sometimes knowing how to solve each puzzle can be a little frustrating, and the game does have some occasional slowdown, but these are minor quibbles, at best. My Memory of Us is an unmissable experience.
This is a game that will stand the test of time and be one of the games that can be used as an educational opening with your child or allow a person to learn our history through another medium. Even though I had the opportunity to skip the cut scenes, I found myself definitely intrigued and engrossed in the story beautifully spoken by Sir Patrick Stewart. He absolutely was the best fit for the narrator role in this game. His voice definitely gave you the feel that you were in deed taking a trip back through the Memories of Us.
A dramatic story that narrates with tact and subtlety one of the darkest eras of modern history. An artistic finish and magnificent sound that make up a staging that already wanted some triple A titles and make up a game that will reach your heart and that has become by its own merits an indispensable in this generation.

My Memory of Us is an emotional tale of two friends determined to never let go and become separated, ever. As you make your way through this intense story, you’ll encounter many puzzles, stealth segments, environmental obstacles, and even find lots of ‘memories’ of real-life people. This is an edutainment game done correctly – you’re working your way through a fantastical journey of love, friendship, loss, and adventure, yet it’s all symbolising the horrific real events of Poland in World War II.
I have to say, I really enjoyed My Memory of Us. It manages to tell a challenging story that reflects the Holocaust and concentration camps, all while maintaining a youthful innocence and focusing on the fun the characters are having together.
My Memory of Us is a thoroughly rewarding game from various angles. The narrative is engrossing and touching, the gameplay is challenging and engaging, and the artistic style is glorious yet understated. It tackles a difficult subject but does so with care and the end result is a game that only further enhances the already deeply impressive Nintendo Switch catalogue.
The game may be simply played, but it is definitely the story and its accompanying music that makes it wonderful. I was glad to have experienced something like that because of its refreshing approach. I am excited to see what more Juggler Games are capable of giving to a growing audience of a genre like this.
My Memory Of Us is a fantastic blend of storytelling interwoven with enjoyable puzzles, intelligent stealth mechanics and refreshing cooperative player-controlled play. This one is recommended for all adventure gamers and the elegant story-telling voiced by Patrick Stewart just sweetens the deal!
The game is not very long, it can go for some five hours. Within this time, however, you will be able to hear an interesting story of the Second World War from the point of view of children's innocent childhood. And even though it happened once or twice that there was a technical error, it is ultimately a nice, well-tuned title with progressive difficulty.

Considering its length, My Memory Of Us is a tad overpriced, but the game itself proves a charming magnificent puzzler that tugs at both your brain and your heart strings.
My Memory Of Us shouldn't be missed! The side scrolling adventure puzzler features enjoyable gameplay suitable for all ages. Where the game really exceeds is the beautiful and haunting retelling of the Holocaust as a robot invasion through the eyes of two children that won't let their friendship be torn apart by hate and prejudice.
While the length of the game was a little on the short side, My Memory of Us was a powerful story with enjoyable puzzles that has left an impact regardless of its length.
If you're looking for a good puzzle\platformer on your Nintendo Switch, My Memory of Us is definitely one you'll want to add to your wish list. Even though it's a little on the short side the gameplay is fun, the characters are memorable, and the story has meaning. This is also an appropriate gaming experience for gamers of all ages.
Despite its annoying stealth sections, My Memory of Us is a truly touching platformer that uses beautiful artwork and clever puzzles to weave a rich narrative. It may not be perfect, but Patrick Stewart’s stellar narration is enough to forget any minor niggles.
What I appreciated most about My Memory of Us was the positive overtone and message of the power of friendship during the worst of times. It takes courage to tell a story that mirrors the holocaust, and developer Juggler Games does a fine job of highlighting the hope and determination of two friends fighting against all odds.
The story alone really does make My Memory of Us worth the purchase. It manages to toe the line between childlike innocence and emotional gravitas brilliantly, all the while providing some enjoyable enough gameplay. While some of the logic of the puzzles can either make you tilt your head or shrug with indifference at an obvious solution, I was far too engrossed in hearing these memories to care.
While the Nazi occupation of Poland is a grim area of history to cover in a cute puzzle game, My Memory of Us respects the past and delivers a somber-yet-hopeful tale of friendship.
My Memory of Us with its simple storytelling delivers a profound and impactful narrative that portrays a war-torn world filled with traumas and tensions of war. experiencing this beautiful game in some of your spare time in a week will not be amiss.

It’s safe to say Juggler Games hit their mark with My Memory of Us. I was thoroughly entertained throughout and even as a jaded adult who doesn’t like children, I was completely invested in what happened to the kids and the people around them every step of the way. It’s a bit short, taking less than five hours to finish, but even so I’d still pay the $18 asking price for it. What it may lack in replay value it makes up for in a charming, imaginative world and the struggle of two friends trying to stay together as outside forces seem destined to keep them apart.
Although the gameplay of My Memory of Us might seems simple, or even trivial, I can't help but notice that this game could be an excellent device to bring the younger ones acquainted with one of the darkest pages of human history. Using smiles and touching words, My Memory of Us ends up being the best method for us to understand our past so that the mistakes of our fathers won't be repeated.

Although the WWII setup is one that's been played out in a lot of games, The Memory of Us didn't feel like just a rehash of some other game. It's a simple puzzler that'll give you some fun for an afternoon or two, just not with the same depth story-wise that a game like Valiant Hearts had.
My Memory of Us is a joy to play. It's a well-crafted game that is clearly made by a team equipped to tackle such a heavy subject matter. Even without directly showing any Nazi symbols, the story is heart-wrenching and manages to pay tribute to the sacrifice of those who fought against them.
It may be a hard subject to discuss in real life, but My Memory Of Us does what it set out to do and is a game the whole family and younger children can be a part of.
My Memory of Us is an exciting and emotional trip through a dark period of human history. Its bittersweet story mixes well with its tense stealth-based gameplay, while clever puzzles flesh things out. Fittingly for a game about memories, we won't forget our time with Juggler Games' project for quite a while.
Striking black-and-white visuals looks great on the Switch’s handheld screen, and the vibrant sound design often reveals hidden clues and cues. My Memory of Us stands out as an accessible throwback, and it commits fully to its message. This journey won’t take you very long to complete, but it’s one worth seeing through to the end.
Sending the player at the heart of the horrors of World War II inside Warsaw Ghetto, My Memories of Us uses the conflict to tell a beautiful story of childhood friendship, telling this part of history through their own eyes. With its classic mecanics and some inacurrate collisions, Juggler's game still have a certain charm thanks to its beautifl artistic direction and soundtrack.

My Memory of Us brings the players into a different experience, with its sombre environments and unusual story-telling. Thanks to its accessible gameplay it never gets too difficult to advance, which might be disappointing for players looking for something more complex but the game's original premise and concept make this a title that stands out amidst other indie games in the Nintendo Switch catalogue.

It feels trite to put a score on a game like Memory of Us as it tells an important and poignant story that should be heard, it's just that at times the game parts get in the way of that story.
A pleasant story about two best friends who refuse to be separated by a great evil, My Memory of Us is brought down by some awkward controls, but remains impossibly nice throughout.
