I would certainly recommend this game for everybody who is looking for a casual fantasy adveture game with a great story, beautiful graphics, very good music background and relaxed feeling. I also appreciate that there is no direct violence in the game (just a few times you see the aftermath of it). Generaly, it's much more casual than its prequel - there are no people with plucked-out eyes, peope killed by putting pitchfork through their heads or murderous "sad feries" hunting you down (contrary to the prequel), the focus is much more on the story and riddles than action, which I like.
What I find a bit of a drawback of the game is its linearity. On one hand, you can't make a mistake or die - the game won't let you - but on the other hand, there is only one possible way through the game, which renders a lot of dialogs useless. They are nice for the atmosphere of the game and give characters a bit more depth, but otherwise they are there just to fill empty space. There is also only one possible ending (well, there are two, but they depend on the only thing you can actually choose in the very end of the game, otherwise, there is no choice).
The two parallel stories aren't very well balanced - developers' main focus was clearly on the story of princess Sadja and the story of Geron is there just so someone can uncover the story of Sadja (but maybe this is the way the developers wanted it). Because of it, the kingdom of Andergast feels more like a tiny village than actual kingdom and it is only through dialogs that you learn you're actually in a kingdom. Sadjas' path to Draconia, however, feels much better and much more real (provided it's a fantasy game :-)).
There are a few logical glithes in the story, but nothing major, so you probably won't even notice during the first play (I didn't :-)).
It is not necessary to play the prequel (Chains of Satinav) to this game first. Just read who is Nuri and how she became a raven, who is Satinav and you're all set. I played the prequel after Memoria and must say that I find Memoria much better game. It also didn't help me find out more about Satinav (really don't know why it is called Chains of Satinav when you learn nothing about him, let alone some minor hints).
8/10 - it is difficult to say whether something is missing in the game or whether this something was never intended to be there, so it could even be 10/10. But the game is very good nontheless and definitely worth buying and playing more than once.
