11-11: Memories Retold
Top Critic Average
11-11: Memories Retold is a story full of symbolism, questions of humanity and beautiful scenery. The game deserves more fine-tuning, which would make it a great. Our recommendation is clear: buy some tissues and seven points out of ten.

11-11 was a fun ride with a unique and beautiful art style, complemented by a well-written story that taught me that it’s really not about the destination, but the characters that you meet along the way.
11-11: Memories Retold is a totally new experience in the genre of war games with a story more intriguing than any other war inspired books and novels. So do yourself a favor and dedicate a small part of your time to this unforgettable journey.

11-11: Memories Retold in addition to its anti-war message is a story about the strong friendship that can grow among people who face adversities, no matter where they come from. As an interactive experience it works flawlessly, but at times it forgets to be as much a game as needed, and that's a pity.

Emotional story of two different soldiers during WW I with simple gameplay but sentimental moments.

Instead of going to the action filled WWII we've seen countless times, 11-11: Memories Retold wants to show us the human element of the war. Even when the narrative beats doesn't hit where it should, is definitely an interesting experience supported by a great art direction.

And that’s the thing about 11-11 Memories Retold – should I expect to be surprised? Should I rightfully hope to learn something? Should I expect the medium to be used in a new way to make me think about things differently? Is this video game just not for me? Who then, is it for? I’m upset that 11-11 can be both so serious and so inane, so against-the-grain yet so grimly uninventive. I’m bothered by the feeling of myself being bored by this game when its earnestness and thematic content tells me that my entertainment here shouldn’t necessarily be the point. Where is my empathy? Why can’t I think of the poor soldiers, civilians, etc., the people who lived through this? I like that it tries to work against the video game paradigm of glorifying violence; I hate how it gave me the longest five hours of my life in the process. Press “F” for feelings and so on.
All up it'll take you roughly 6-10 hours (11 if you are me) to finish the game. It is a sobering experience to play through but does not weigh too heavily which it certainly could have considering the subject matter. There are moments of humour and action in its own very unique and special way. This title was a delight to play and to experience a very uniquely told story. I do recommend it.
It's better to look at the paintings of Monet and Van Gogh in the museum - and in this case you''ll definitely not regret the time spent. We can't say the same about 11-11: Memories Retold after finishing it.

This is a singular dramatic achievement in the adventure game genre, with high production values and a superb narrative.
