Phantom Doctrine Review
If you are a fan of deep, complex strategy games, then the turn-based spy simulator Phantom Doctrine is one that you will want to love. Unfortunately, the game makes it extremely difficult for you to do so. It's a shining example of how a game with a bunch of great ideas can undermine itself repeatedly with terrible implementation.
There are a lot of ideas packed into this game but I feel like if they would have cut back on a couple of the concepts to focus more on the story then this could have been a real stand out game. As it is now Remember Me is more appealing when it gets cheaper or if you have absolutely nothing to play. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for a soundtrack release but the game itself is pretty forgettable and will only leave a memory of the visual art at best. I trust that Capcom can get some good games out there and Dontnod Entertainment can definitely make a good game, but Remember Me just isn't their best attempt.
