Silent Hill: Shattered Memories
This game seems as through it is going to rid the SIlent HIll universe of some of the main staples that made the series great. It is taking away the combat (which was irritating to some of the players, and for good reason, but nothing was more satisfying than the THUNK! when I wouldhit a gray child over the head with the pipe). It's taking away the disturbing "otherworld" and replacing it with a freezer. Foremost, the problem is that it is making Harry run from everything, and when one thinks about the psychological subterfuge this series has presented, it shows that Harry is not going to deal with his own psychological issues, because he is only running from all the monsters. That's just one of the issues I currently have insofar as what I've seen and read. So I am hoping that this game will not be as bad as I think it will be, but regardless, it will probably be much better than any Resident Evil or Alone In The Dark that has ever been.
At first I thought this game was going to be one of those scary games that don't really entertain, but this was a mix of I guess you could say mild scare, but great storyline. At first it is a little slow, but towards then end, things start to get real exciting. I recommend this game to people that are looking for a good storyline game, and also some adventure. Some things to know about this game before you buy it is; there are no guns in this game, so no killing anyone, and there are only one type of monsters that try to kill you, but they rarely appear. This allows the game to focus more on the story rather than the fighting. Awesome storyline, if you like mind bogglers, and this game is really good at keeping you questioned on what is happening next. I hope you buy this game and enjoy it.
Extremely Well Done For Playstation Portalbe
ive played this for the Wii and the port from motion to portable is a great job and the sound quality on cell phone calls is SO much better, it is slightly better than console versions and i totally reccomend this to anyone who loves Silent Hil or just wants a good scare its freaky, the entire world changes on how u awnser the questions in the game it has so many possibilities on how to play its great for portable i would reccomend headphones though and play it in the dark. the cell phone function is very cool and the map is different cuz u cant drawon it like the wii but at least the motion wont get messed up wen u get monsters off of you u just press a button wen i had to throw the remote while it does not always read and then kills you so i would say this is more of a portable than console
A good game, best judged as standalone.
Silent Hill: Shattered Memories is a good game with a really good, moody soundtrack, and I believe it captures the essence of being completely alone quite well. The reason for this is that you hardly meet anyone else in the game, and those you do meet don't stay on-screen for very long. I also find the "Nightmare" (or "Otherworld") sections of the game really fun and good for a rush. The puzzle segments are also fun to solve. The other thing I like about the game is the presence of "Echoes", which are imprints of life; they're good for collectibles and to flesh out the town a bit more. However, in order to truly enjoy this game, it would be best if you judge it as not a part of Silent Hill canon, but as its own standalone title.
It Blew Me Away
First off, this game is not even bad. No one should ever complain about this game. The game really makes itself work for the PSP. Sure Konami took out som of the features like moving your flashlight around freely, but the game is still phenomanal. The soundtrack did not let me down considering the fact that the music's been great in all Silent Hill games. The music really sets the mood for a depressing and dead town, but it also creates an intense mood when the Nightmare creatures are chasing after you. Those sequences with the nightmare creatures are a bit annoying at times, but can be really intense. I wouldn''t this game is really scary. It just seems like it wants to make you jump from time to time when some random echo shadow screams at you and runs away.The controls are really good for a PSP game. But, like I said before, there's no freely aiming your flashlight unless you zoom in. That's actually a good thing because on the Wii you have to keep your hand up constantly and sometimes you might not aim the flashlight at the right image or something like that. The sound was fair. All and all this is a great game for the PSP and I strongly reccomend it. The part that actually blew me away was the ending. I'm not going to say anything else other than it had an unforgettable twist.
A Reimagining of the Original
Silent Hill: Shattered Memories, released earlier this year for the Wii, is a step in a new direction for the Silent Hill series. On the Wii, the game is a masterpiece, and I can only imagine the other versions will keep with the same standard. Because of the psych profiles, the game is never the same twice. The answers you give to the questions the game provides and the way you play the game all shifts how everything around you unfolds, what the monsters look like, and what ending you get. The inability to use weapons adds a new element of tension to the game, and despite the fact that it would seem boring to only run away from your enemies, the chase segments are some of the most engaging and hair-raising moments in the entire game. The puzzles are good, and the story is intriguing. The game itself is short, only around 6 hours at most your first time through, but the replayability is high, and the game throws enough at you to keep you coming back a few times over. Also, to make things clear, this game is not, in fact, a remake of the original Silent Hill. It is only a reimagining of it, using some of the same characters. Don't expect this story to tie in with Silent Hill 3, which was the direct sequel to the original. It only takes a similar situation and puts its own unique spin on it. Altogether, will most likely be a great addition to anybody's PSP collection, if the Wii version is any indication.
I've been a long time fan of Silent Hill, but was hesitant to pick this up do to how different it was. Definitely to be treated as a stand alone. While the gameplay is neither difficult nor are the puzzles challenging, it still has a phenomenal story, which I honestly believe beats the original. it has a story that keeps you going, guessing, and wanting to see what happens next, regardless of the fact I looked up the ending before I purchased it! I love this game and want more like it and will wish more will be made.
Worst Silent Hill
omg this was so not worth the money i should of just watch it on youtube, just to get the story. i mean silent hill origins was way better and 20 bucks cheaper on the playstation store. you don't even get to eliminate the monsters all you get to do is push them out of the way. simply just a disappointing game. dang game producers think just cause it has nice graphics it'll be a good game but not at all. just get origins if you really want to have fun. oh and also this game is very short.
this will blow your mind!!!
all the other silent hills have always been focused on the fighting and frightening scenes and creature who slowly walk after u, in this new one yes u can easily see that they are chasing after u at full speed fighting with u while u struggle to run away and, this game is easily more focused on more puzzles.This will definantly be a game for any silent hill fan to have i already have it fully pre ordered which comes with an amazing soundtrack.. trust me u'll want to get this game
Worst Silent Hill, ever.
Is this even Silent Hill? i regret buying this completely! For its price, its such a waste of money. get origins or homecoming if you want real silent hill action. all you can do in this game is run away from the monsters. you can't even fight them, or hurt them at all. its terrible. Just watch it on youtube to learn the story, thats the only thing in the game that isn't completely terrible. please, save yourself the time, & money. don't buy this!
