‘Bright Memory: Infinite’ Switch: Fun FPS Single-Player Dented By Rough Edges

Gunning down waves of ancient demons, sneaking up on futuristic soldiers and getting sucked into immersive action scenarios sounds like a good time, right? Well, this is what Bright Memory: Infinite serves up and it’s all great fun, as you can see from our 7/10 review from when the game came to PC last year.

Playing as Shelia, a gun-toting, sword-wielding, parkouring hero, this intense action title feels a bit like Titanfall meets Devil May Cry 5 with a share of Crysis thrown in for good measure. Not to oversell it as it’s severely limited compared to those bigger, AAA games, but it has that vibe, and I’m here for it.

Although the campaign is short, only taking two or three hours to beat on your first go, there’s plenty of replayability to Bright Memory: Infinite, and that’s largely down to its bitesize nature. It’s easy to load up and play all the way through because it’s essentially the length of a feature film.

If it feels a bit too short for you, you can knock the difficulty up a notch and see how you get on, but ultimately it’s a short-yet-sweet game that would suit any Switch-carrying commuter. At least, in theory.

Sadly, the Nintendo Switch port of Bright Memory: Infinite feels more on the dull side than I’d like. Enemies often appear fuzzy, and there have been multiple times where the game has hit an error and broken stride. I know the Switch lacks the processing power of a high-end PC, but this game struggles more than other ports I’ve played. 

In short, if you are looking for a fun, short and relatively simple FPS for Nintendo Switch, Bright Memory: Infinite is a fun game that is still enjoyable even with its bugs. Hopefully post-launch patches eliminate these issues but, for now, it’s a poor relation to the PC game. 

Bright Memory: Infinite is available July 21, 2022 for Nintendo Switch Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5. Game tested on Nintendo Switch with code provided by publisher.
