Silent Hill: Shattered Memories

 

Silent Hill: Shattered Memories is a re-imagining of the original Silent Hill game, done especially for Wii. It follows the story of amnesiac Harry Mason as he searches for his lost daughter Cheryl following a snow-related car accident. The town...

Genuinely creepy atmosphere; psychological analysis makes for interesting theme and adds replayability

Although you're never quite sure when the Nightmare will strike, there's absolutely no danger until it actually does; some phone interfaces are awkward, especially while being chased

With our Nintendo crew and in house Silent Hill guy at CES, it was up to me to take on the chills in Konami's newest title in the franchise, Silent Hill: Shattered Memories. Released for the Wii on December 8th, and upcoming for the PS2 and PSP in a...

Silent Hill: Shattered Memories gets a lot right, and just a couple of major things wrong. If you're in the mood for spine tingling uneasiness, and can bear some frustration, be sure to play this one.

Shattered Memories is not quite the reboot the series needed.

Thus, in contrary to the old maxim, something new is old again. Keep your expectations firmly grounded if you wish to dive into Shattered Memories' icy waters.

Silent Hill: Shattered Memories Review

 

Learning to let go is never easy—a truth that few gamers know better than Silent Hill fans. Following the release of Silent Hill 4, the series has been jostled around, toyed with, dissected, experimented on and reconstituted time and again, each new...

Whether or not this is true, or if Konami intends to flounder on soullessly without Yamaoka remains to be seen, but if this is to be the series’ swan song, it’s a great note to go out on. And to all my fellow Silent Hill fans, I say this: at least...

Run like Hell.

Well-executed Wii functionality; No weapons = nightmarish sense of helplessness; Unique 'reimaginative' approach to franchise; Superb story that reacts to you

Nightmare Escape segments can get repetitive; On the short side

Silent Hill: Shattered Memories

 

Silent Hill and I go way back. In 1999, I was 12 years old and a total wuss. I couldn't handle scary movies or games, and gore sent me fleeing from the room – I couldn't even handle the Black Knight scene from Monty Python and the Holy Grail....

Slow-burning, mature storyline; intense and creepy atmosphere; psychological profiling actually influences the game; Wii version makes clever use of remote; among the best graphics, sound, and art design on Nintendo's console to date

Nightmare sequences can be frustrating; strict division between safe and dangerous segments means that the game often isn't as scary as it could be

This reimagining significantly alters the Silent Hill formula, but for those willing to put up with the occasional frustrating chase sequence, Shattered Memories is a masterpiece of atmosphere and storytelling that demands your attention.

Same town. New look. Basically a different game.

Kombo's Review Policy: Our reviews are written for you. Our goal is to write honest, to-the-point reviews that don't waste your time. This is why we've split our reviews into four sections: What the Game's About, What's Hot, What's Not and Final Word,...

Really, nothing about Silent Hill is hot, but that's not a bad thing. Gone are the rust and blood of earlier games, replaced with a never-ending snowstorm and unimaginably thick ice. In fact, a lot of things have changed, but the story at the core is a...

Unfortunately, the new control scheme creates as many problems as it solves. I like the idea of removing combat from the game and it works well for the most part, both in the way it incorporates into the themes and the game. However, I found that when...

Silent Hill: Shattered Memories Re..

 

The dream is dissipating.

No need to complain about plodding combat; complex and emotional story; fantastic lighting; Psych Profile kind of works

Psych Profile effects are superficial; Nightmare world is very aggravating at times; forgettable puzzles; not scary

The Psych Profile adds a unique layer of personal attachment to the characters and settings, but I don't go to Silent Hill to expose my unconscious sexual desires. I go there to be scared, and Shattered Memories isn't up to the task. The Nightmare...
