As far as dating sims/otome games go this is a simple one ( For those who are wondering there is NO +18 Content.)
+ sweet story
+ catchy soundtrack
+ two possible endings a special and normal ending.
+ Skills / Parameters determine outcome.

Some of the things I didnt enjoy about this game are :
- It becomes repetetive way too fast. (click after click of doing the same thing )
- The random event are sweet but they lacked visual aspects to them to make them satisfying.
- The options (at least for me) hardly changed the outcome or made a big significant change.
- Feels like a flash game.

Overall it is a sweet game, and would recommend it for casual dating sim players or anyone who is 13+ (teens) there is no explicit language or content as far from kissing and hugging so pretty pink and sweet.

**For anyone who is experienced with Otome/ Dating Sim games this is not your game. You will ended fairly quickly and will get bored from it quite fast and just get really annoyed at some characters in the game.

Always Remember Me is a nice dating sim, starring a female protagonist.

As those familiar with the genre would expect, after a brief set of introductory events the game gives you nearly complete freedom of what to do and whom to meet. There are only four potential romantic partners, though they are fairly well-detailed and likable. Protagonist herself, Amy also gets a lot of characterization rather than just being a stand-in for the player. And your every action, successful or not, gets a description of how it went, done in Amy’s quirky style!

Also as expected of a dating sim, your character has several stats, and doing your daily job for money as well as variety of activities to increase one or more stat is integral part of the gameplay.

Storytelling-wise, there are some lovely moments, but nothing truly touched me as some moments in other visual novels and dating sims did. Overall, I enjoyed the story well enough, although I wouldn’t call it that great either.

I can recommend Always Remember Me to all fans of dating sims. And those unfamiliar with this genre but interested in a nice casual game may consider giving it a try as well.

One of the easiest games I`ve ever played, nice for beginners, but nothing new under the sun.
Since the beginning of the game you do know which character likes which stat, you just have to visit them every day and learn the required skill to get a 100% romance.
Decide, if you want to fight for your love (and stick with the one who forgot about you), or if you like to flirt with a doctor, a designer or a shy ice cream vendor.
Love has never been so easy, yet so predictable as in this game.

A pretty nice decent dating sim with pretty cute artwork. The story is a neat premise, the main character's boyfriend has amnesia so she can either stick it out with him or pursue three other dudes. The characters themselves aren't annoying, but they don't really stick out that much either. That's unfortunately because you don't actually get to see most of their personality unless you pursue them as a love interest and even then you only get a few choice-related events with them. Then again, maybe it was meant to be that way since they're suppose to be simple characters and not soap opera cliche characters. Although, its neat how the game incorporates morale and energy levels in it, and its pretty simple to figure out how to best balance out those stats.

As far as this review goes, I've only played through Aaron's and Lawrences's normal and special endings. Aaron's special ending was the only ending from those four that had a smooth transition for its end relationship. The other four endings just pop up abruptly once you max out the guys' love meters, almost as if they were an after-thought in the story designing process. And I'm unsure if those endings take place right there or later on in the future. Don't get me wrong, I still had fun playing the game, but those ending transitions needs a bit of work.

I'd recommend picking the game up when its on sale if you want a nice short dating sim.

At first there's a variety of things to do and plenty of dialogue, but once that's over you're simply playing a game to slowly increase a girls morale and skills by reading books, writing a blog, buying more books and going to work.

It's... it's really boring.

I thought this game would have potential. The idea of having to make the choice to move on and find someone else or try to tough it out with your boyfriend who has amnesia sounded so appealing...
The game is kinda really boring though. Too much pointless grinding, and it doesn't even really tell you what stats are for whom. It's just constant reading books and going to work with a tiny bit of story. soo not fun.
The characters are decent, and the story is alright..

Half-past twenty and the feelings are getting weary.
Once upon September said you'll always remember me.
Farewell young heart the sky won't shine brighter.
Twenty more years and later will you still remember?

What if the person you planned to spend the rest of your life with suddenly, abruptly, really soon like, forgot who you are because of a car accident? Same here, I don’t have no money for doctor bills. It’s time to dump em’ and find a new squeeze.

You play as this red head chick who is hella randy and it is your job to make her experience “true love.” That’s right guys, no knockers, no hooters, no lady berries, and no love buttons. This chick keeps her shirt on the whole time and the guys don’t pressure her to put out. Not only does this take away from the realism (‘cause the libido of anime dudes IS real) but one potential love interest is a shy guy with glasses. THE SHY GUY WITH GLASSES DOES NOT GET FRIEND ZONED BY DEFAULT. I couldn’t believe it either. I did everything in my power to put this fool in his place, but then I… fell in love with him.

His long hair glistened in the sun and this was accentuated by his inability to shower because his hair retained its natural oils. When his baggy bloodshot eyes met mine I looked away of course. When I looked back to see if he was still staring at me, he was. It was like his eyes never left me. That he would never leave me.

This game completes me. 10/10

This game has its flaws, but if you can look past them it's a nice playing experience. Great art, nice characters, dramatic, but realistic enough backstory and 9 different kind of endings (if you count 'alone' ending to be one). Music is also nice, but for my taste maybe a little too repetitive. After all, it's a really beautiful and kind of cute game.

How ever there is a big problem with this game. After a little while playing it really starts to repeat itself, like REALLY repeat. When you become familiar with how all of it works you're just basicly waiting for some random events to trigger and your friendship to increase with your chosen character. Also you have to know who you are going after from the day one in this game. Otherwise you'll just run out of time and end up getting alone ending. I can't say much about endings, because I haven't played all of them yet. But from what I've seen... they're not that strong and feel kind of flat.

But well, after all I still must say that it's okey game. I've played better visual novels before, but can't really say it's bad either. If you like visual novels then I'd say give it a try.

Eat, sleep, work, read your amnesian boyfriend books - repeat

This has to be the first Winter Wolves game which really annoys me.

For a Visual novel the story/characters are really thin, your progress through it is nearly non existant, which in the end makes a repetetive grind through the always same few stations you have in the game with always the same actions and nearly no story progress.
Mix to this a similiar annoying music background and you have a really bland gaming experience.

Short review, but there isn´t much more to this game.

As a huge fan of dating sims, I've already experienced many different types of Otome Games / Visual Novels and yet, I have to say that I was quite disappointed by Always Remember Me. I had some expectations before playing this game since the visuals seemed fairly appealing and I actually wasn't disappointed by the (few) CGs - they were drawn well and the character designs weren't bad either. But that's it, everything else made me - bluntly said - dislike the game.

The characters' sprites during the cutscenes looked weird (e.g. when Amy cried her posture/gesture didn't change at all, her posture stayed the same throughout the game and the same with the other characters). Additionally, the game seemed to focus more on the stat raising mechanic than the romance plot itself, leading to some annoying and boring "save & load" back and forth since you want to raise your stats as soon as possible in order to get both endings easily. Lastly, the endings to every route in this game. Briefly said, they were also very disappointing. A short cutscene with CG as a reward and during those cutscenes, you couldn't really feel the love between the protagonist and her final love interest - you just couldn't feel this achievement which you want to have as the player in every dating sim.

All in all, I'm glad they took another step forward to localising dating sims in the west and I don't regret buying ARM since it helped supporting the localisation. Still, I probably wouldn't have bought it for another reason.

All my other reviews are jokes, but I really can’t joke about this game. It’s a dating sim that seems like a cute way to pass the time but in the end just feels like a whole repetitive exercise about how much you can read into non-existent conversations and relationships with little foundation.

Always Remember Me is quick to use all the big heart-tugging elements, with a somewhat forbidden relationship, a protagonist with dead parents, an amnesiac boyfriend, a manipulative ex-girlfriend, and even a struggling humanities student who is just trying to pay her tuition. The story is all very heavy-handed, never really bothering to get into the "why" or "how" of anything or anyone. But that doesn't really matter anyway, since scenes are so few and far between – and so incredibly brief when they even happen – that the story barely exists. It's not uncommon for Always Remember Me to just skip scenes altogether, passing over entire conversations and evenings out, and swiftly arriving at the ending, leaving you to fill in any romance or, well, anything at all that happened.

The sim elements feel pretty unnecessary. On easy difficulty you can spam the activity that gives you the most stats, while on harder difficulties you scramble around to figure out a strategy. The emphasis seems to be more on the “sim” element than the “dating”, and for that it’s not too fun. The relationship building part of the game doesn’t feel substantial, and if the overall aim is to grind numbers for those parts then I have to ask what purpose it serves, or if the result even makes up for the grind.

At the end of the day, Always Remember Me isn't a bad game, it just falls flat on effort in the wrong places. The plot relies on shallow dramatic backstory to give characters a false sense of depth while the gameplay is a pure grind and almost without purpose. For me, there’s not enough payoff to justify grinding through numbers to reach an ending, and that makes this game a really dull experience.

After finishing the main guy's route, I didn't feel compelled to continue playing any of the other routes. It felt bland, uninspired and didn't leave much of an impression on me. It's superficial at best and it's all about stat raising and not enough story. Though the art looks well done it's additionally let down by the UI which I firmly disliked and didn't allow me to fully immerse myself in it. Everything is cookie-cutter and failed to employ cliches effectively and I won't be looking forward to any Winter Wolves games in the future.

I enjoyed this vn/otome..but there were some major flaws that made it all just feel a little lacking. The ending was the biggest flaw. I got both the special and normal ending for Eddy and I felt zero difference between the two. There also was absolutely no build up to the ending.

The male characters just sort of eventually confess to Amy, with not much having happened between them since this game focuses just a little, little too much on stat building...and then the player is left a little confused as to whether or not Amy is actually dating the love interest (because even if a different guy confesses to hear and she says something like "I think I have feelings for you, too", she still visits her boyfriend with Amnesia at the hospital and gets upset when his ex girlfriend is there).

After that, once you either fill the 'love meter' or play up until the 'deadline', it just skips straight to a short ending scene with your hubby without any build up or conflict in the story (besides the whole amnesia storyline).

Despite all of this, I did very much like three of the love interests. The boyfriend with amnesia was a little too plain to be so much trouble for my tastes..but these bishies were still interesting and the sort that plenty of people can get attached to (such as myself).

Amy, the heroine, is also very likable and the game has fantastic artwork (not to mention a fairly nice soundtrack which I better liked by purchasing the deluxe edition of the game).

All in all, not the greatest otome and it didn't handle the stat building particularily well (and I think the new game Backstage Pass did a better job of that..), but it was cute and charming.

It just is NOT the sort of thing if you've played a lot of visual novels or otome games. There's very little text and it's mostly stat building (which is great if you prefer it that way..I just am used to reading a lot and making tough decisions in my vn's and otomes).

When I first saw this game I must confess I made fun of it. I mean, a lot. Turns out a friend of mine gave me the game as a gift (his idea of a prank) and I thought I might play it as well. I found out I was wrong about it.
Although its not really the style of game I'm used to playing, I may say that the experience was quite enjoyable. The story is well written, although the overall game writing could use some more work (only a few outcomes to the actions you perform, making it a bit repetitive). The gameplay may feel a bit boring, specially because actual story parts only come up once a week and you will find yourself performing the same actions over and over again until an opportunity appears, but the moments you actually do something different make up for it. The soundtrack is not bad and suits the game just fine.
I recommend people actually give this game a try before they say it's bad. It's not bad, just a different and fun way to pass the time if you have nothing else to do or feel tired of slashing and shooting stuff. Still, the issues I mentioned may let some people down and kind of annoyed me throughout my gameplay so I'll give it a 7/10.

It was interesting to see stats incorporated into a VN. I know a few titles that have done this before but I've never had the chance to try them out.

Unfortunately, a balance needs to be struck when this comes into play. The game is too repetitive seeing as the options to raise the 4 stats are very limited. I went for the Eddy special ending and I barely used the gym. It turned out that blogging had a higher success rate for raising 2 discipline instead of 1. By the second half of the playthrough, I was watching TV all day just to pass the time and get to the next day (to progress things with Eddy).

Something else which bothered me was how cookie-cutter the males were. Aaron bored me to death and Lawrence is a huge drama queen. This part is purely subjective but out of the ordinary characters would have made this game 3x better.

I recommend getting this game on sale. It's fun, but I wouldn't pay full price for it mostly because it lacks replay value. However, all the boys are adorable and it's a very heartwarming dating sim! So, I recommend playing it, just when it's on sale :P

If you love skipping inane dialogue and clicking the same activities hundreds of times just to get a miserably unsatisfying ending, this is the game for you. If you want an actual visual "novel" with, like, writing that doesn't repeat itself a trillion times and has the same quality as a Newgrounds flash game (not an exaggeration in the least), maybe with voice acting or decent music or meaningful event sequences, maybe even some animation--forget it, it's not there.

Don't be sucked in by the good premise. It goes absolutely nowhere. I love VNs and I love story-based games, and dating sims can be done well. There's almost no writing, and all of it is atrocious. Nothing works. The art never changes, the activities don't change, the events repeat hundreds of times, and reaching an ending is nothing more than repeating the same actions over and over and over again. It's not fun, and it doesn't lead to anything interesting at any point.

Not even Cristina Vee singing the game's theme song can save it. The best part of the game is the title screen and the intro. Beyond that, don't expect anything better. I'm serious, I'm super-forgiving when it comes to this, but this is absolutely no deeper than a standard flash game. There's about as much dialogue and content as there.
