What is Bright Memory: Infinite
“Strange phenomena take over the skies of China on Chinese New Year’s Eve in 2036. Shelia, an elite investigator at the Supernatural Science Research Organization, receives orders to investigate the phenomenon. It is soon discovered that these strange occurrences are connected to an archaic mystery – an as-of-yet unknown history of two worlds, about to come to light…”
Bright Memory: Infinite combines the FPS and action genres to deliver a high-octane experience. Mix and match available skills and abilities to unleash magnificent combos on your enemies.
Your trusted sword allows you to slash through crowds of enemies and even repel their gunfire. The guns you come across in-game can be customized with a variety of ammunition. Choose between incendiary bombs, sticky grenades, homing missiles, and more to suit your situation.
The combat is fast-paced and quite intense. Furthermore, it is always putting you in engaging and puzzling situations. Of course, for you to shoot and slash your way out of them. The variety and the speed at which the combat plays out are incredibly fun. It feels so satisfying.
Sadly, one of the downsides of this title is its short length. The game is made by one developer who has put in a ton of blood, sweat, and tears into this project. Nonetheless, even though the game is short, it is a fabulous ride. Honestly, I’m just sad that the game was over quickly because I really wanted more.
Look and Feel
If you haven’t already noticed, this game is an absolute looker. The game features an aesthetic that is similar to Battlefield 4 and Crysis 2. It’s got a dark, rainy gritty world with a lot of colors and chromatic abberation. The textures and the levels are a treat to the eyes. Especially with the rain.
Furthermore, the game has a lot of Chinese designs integrated into the artsyle. Which is a given since the developer of the game is Chinese. It helps accentuate the game’s look and feel.
But the best part of the game is the Ray Tracing. That’s right, the game features Ray Tracing and my goodness does it elevate the experience. The reflections are so mesmerizing and pretty to look at thanks to the ray tracing. Not to mention all the explosions, fire, and particle effects that aid it as well.
Bright Memory: Infinite is an action-packed blockbuster FPS and action game that is surprisingly made by just one person. What lets this game down is its length but we can forgive that since it’s a solo dev pouring his heart and soul into this game.
