Critic Reviews for Bright Memory

One of the few games that can accurately be described as so bad it's good, with a gleefully bizarre mix of bad voice-acting, appalling console optimisation, and surprisingly decent gunplay.

Bright Memory has the potential to be great once Infinite arrives, but for now, it gets a very light recommendation with some provisos. It's not technically impressive even as a Series X launch title, but Bright Memory is worth pursuing either way if you grew up on classic action romps.

The technical razzle-dazzle and the interesting gameplay proposal can't hide a flawed, graphically simple experience. Although it feels poor at the moment, it has the potential to become something really better.

Bright Memory is a rare good-bad game that's enjoyable partly because of its oddities and flaws, but there's signs that its sequel Bright Memory Infinite could actually just be good.

Good initial sensations that don't hide their technical and control problems that we hope will be solved in the complete work.

If you like stylish FPS with action-platform elements, Bright Memory could give you more than a surprise, even if between a very low longevity and a confusing narrative.

Bright Memory is a short, janky blast of fun that almost makes up for in ambition what it lacks in execution.

Bright Memory is a very, very short game. I played through it twice, each time the total game time was between 30-40 minutes in length. There isn’t a lot of reason to replay the short campaign either, save for earning Achievements – they even included an Achievement for finishing the game three times. You can dress Shelia up in four different costumes, including the ever-popular school girl outfit, but you really only see them during cutscenes. The game hits a lot of high notes visually, but some design choices, like the bizarre water drop issue and the screen tearing issues, detract from the overall presentation.
