Capcom’s futuristic third person adventure Remember Me has had a far better launch than EA’s new IP Fuse, entering the UK chart at #3.

This sticks a firm two fingers up at the publishers who refuse to believe there’s a demand for titles with female protagonists.

Incidentally, Fuse has now left the top 40 entirely after débuting at a lowly #37 last week.

Codemaster’s Grid 2 is still the UK’s number one, and is followed by FIFA 13 at #2.

At #4 it’s another surprisingly high new entry – The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Legendary Edition. Curiously, plain old vanilla Skyrim is still in the chart at #25.

The only other occurrence of note is Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate re-appearing at #34.

A sensible guess is because of Nintendo’s recently announced offer of a free download for new fellow 3DS owners.

With Capcom now focusing development back onto their internal studios, chances are Remember Me and Lost Planet 3 will be amongst the last titles from their collaborations with Western developers.

Although the jury is still out on Lost Planet 3, it’s safe to say that Remember Me has turned out far greater than the likes of Dark Void and Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City before it.

Not only was EDGE’s review of this third-person adventure one of the first to appear online, but it was also one of the highest – an 8/10.

“While the world building isn’t on a par with the best – hampered by a civilian population as robotic as its metal cohorts – a rich backstory and architectural detail make Neo-Paris a place worth visiting,” they reported.

EGM also enjoyed it, handing out a 9.0: “Remember Me strikes the perfect balance between narrative exposition and gameplay” was their final verdict.

Other reviews have been somewhat less positive, like this 5.0 from Now Gamer and 5.9 from IGN who called it “very forgettable”.

As much as we’d like it to become a sleeper hit due to its ambitious nature and the simple fact that it’s a new IP, it’s hard to see that happening given the mixed reviews. There’s still hope though that it’ll chart higher than last week’s Fuse – another new IP that divided critics.
