This is a singular dramatic achievement in the adventure game genre, with high production values and a superb narrative.
While the gameplay isn’t particularly thrilling, more often than not it still services a well-told story in a gorgeously realized game.
11-11: Memories Retold is a refreshing figure among graphic adventures that are strongly bound by narrative and that deviate from the traditional point & click gameplay. Aardman Studios provides a plot that will draw players' attention from the beginning to the very end, all of it mixed with one of the bests OST that can be found within videogames..

11-11: Memories Retold doesn't attempt to tell a grand tale about World War 1, instead it decides to take a more personal approach. Following 2 soldiers as they take part in The Great War for personal reasons. The adventure is a deeply enriching tale about endurance, friendship, and honor where large-scale fights take a back seat. The abundance of collectibles and technical issues sometimes hamper the experience but these are minor issues. 11-11: Memories Retold is a moving tale of 2 soldiers trying to survive The Great War without killing thousands of NPCs and lots of guns.
11 - 11: Memories Retold is little game, but tells an emotional war drama that resonates for a long time.
