    11-11 Memories Retold is something precious; it’s a rare foil against the lies about war that filth like Call of Duty and Battlefield get away with far too easily.

    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 has a purpose: telling a story, and that’s what it does best. Gameplay wise it feels a little bit weak, but it really shines when it comes to the narrative.

    If you can get through the slow starting hours, 11-11 turns out to be quite an interesting experience, in part due to its unique visual style.

    As Valiant Hearts or This War of Mine, this game wants to show the most painful side of the war. Harry and Kurt are two characters with good stories and drawn like a Monet canvas. But some clumsy puzzles and predictable situations do not let them reach higher.

    The story engages only at the end.

    I had the opportunity to review this game in my native language. I am not very into adventure games like this but i was really suprised afterI had the opportunity to review this game in my native language. I am not very into adventure games like this but i was really suprised after finishing the game. Here is my final verdict translated into english:

    "The game is one big salutation to all livings who died in first world war. Using the unique graphic style, authors perfectly described the true face of war, its story and the consequences. Story won't let you stay emotionless during all possible endings. It will make you think about yourself in same situation, what would you do, how would you act? Several endings will cause mixed emotions like empathy, anger, sadness, relief in you. Probably the only things you will regret after finishing the story are that game finished so fast and decisions almost don't affect the story until the very end."
