The best game ever
Silent Hill :Shattered Memories, is the best video game I have ever played. It's a horrifying game with a brilliant story!
Though the game lacks combat (something i hadnt come to terms with until half way through the game, i was still worried that i overlooked a crow bar or something near the beginning), it is actually way more fun than i thought it was going to be. Very creepy, and a good story line. I like silent hill homecoming better though, because it is scarier and has combat.
An incredible game! I found the movement and control of the game to be very lifelike. The story line is deep and captivating. It is very easy to figure out what to do next.
Nightmares! : O
I have been a long time silent hill fan, i've never had nightmares from any game before.. but after reading that psychology warning, silent hill somehow wound up scaring me beyond my wildest thoughts. no, but seriously, i can't seem to bring myself to play it if i'm alone and i think possibly the fact that i can't fight back in the game. the only option i have is run. kinda makes it more realistic in the fact that if it were to REALLY happen, no one in their right mind would try to stand their and fight these beasts/creatures like they're some superhero crime fighter. I'D RUN FOR MY LIFE as well. lets just say for those who havent played it, if you play it at night, fully dark room, surround sound, and you first encounter the 'evil'.. it lets you run from them and it says 'press this to look beind you' .. i was thinking to myself, "no .. no thanks, i dont want to see whats chasing me down this dark ally i'd much rather just get away" then.. soon after i had to stop playing it.. anyways, i'm extreamly pleased with what Wii has done with the silent hill story/saga yet i too wish i could some way 'fend' for my life.. like a wooden board or pipe or something.. guns are a little much for dream world perhaps, but we will see what happens next time they put a game out : ) i know i'll buy it
Great survival horror game, it's just like playing a psychological thriller movie. Very few games keep me playing just to see what comes next, but this one does it. It has clever puzzles and is very thought provoking, with a top-notch storyline and high creepyness factor. If you're all about the FPS/ResEvil type game, don't bother.
The controls are easy to pick up quickly. If I had a complaint, it would be the lack of variety in enemies and items/weapons during the "Nightmare Scenes". There are different endings based on your psych analysis, but you probably aren't going to play it through again, so buy it used. This game is a blast. Enjoy!
Get ready for an psychological roller-coaster ride!
At first, I was wondering whether this game would be worth it, and dear, it was just amazing. Most games this days are just shoot, kill, move along. This game has a more psychological aspect to it; which not only relies on your ability to pass the game, but your decisions affect the game directly. Although it is not a canon game, you cannot help but wonder if it was as it is very closely related to the previous Silent Hill titles. The endings are still varied depending on your gaming, but the ending twist will leave you wondering long after. The soundtrack is amazing as always, Akira and Mary really did an explendid job bringing more emotion to this game. Although there are times were the Wii control is difficult to respond, it closely matches what one would do in real life, another reason this is a more psychological game than just an action one. Definately worth it, you will not be dissapointed:)
Best Silent Hill game since 2.
I've been a die hard Silent Hill fan since the first game, and I'll be honest- when I first heard about this game, I expected to be disappointed. People called it a remake of the first, it wasn't made by the original team, and [no offense, wii fans] it was for the wii. I didn't expect much, especially after the "meh" feeling that Origins and Homecoming left me with. I was completely wrong. Playing this game was the biggest and best surprise I could have ever hoped for. The story was amazing, not a remake, but a "re-imagining"--and they pulled it off perfectly. It was involving, the graphics were amazing for a wii game, the voice acting was great [almost too good for silent hill, honestly], and the controls were perfect. I've never done too well with the wii's motion controls but the movements required came very naturally to me. And above all of that-- the story. I cannot say enough good things about this story. It's really intricate and psychological, and--aside from giving amazing insight into the series' characters in a new way--it's very personal. The psychological profile changes your game. The things that you look at change your game. The specific buildings that you enter change your game. It's about 5-6 hours long, which sounds short, but it has 6 different endings overall [the last two are REALLY hard to find, but worth it] and it is totally worth it to play over and over again just to find out more details about the story. The AMAZING story. If you love silent hill, and you wonder what Harry and Cheryl would have been like portrayed in a different light, or if you just like psychological stories....better yet, if you like good games-Go out and buy this. Now.
Not what I expected, but a pretty good game overall.
When I saw a Silent Hill was coming out for the Wii I was excited. I have been a fan of SIlent Hill and was glad to see the Wii releasing some popular franchises finally. I bought the game actually thinking it was a remake of the first SIlent Hill for PS one. I was wrong. It has the same basic beginning as the first one, but the beginnnin is pretty much the only thing that is the same. Besides the character's names, the storyline is totally different. The storyline is probably the thing that kept me in intrigued the most. I kept playing to figure out who people were and also who the character of Harry Mason actually is. The graphics are some of the best I have seen on the Wii to date. Graphics have never been the biggest issue with me but they were still awesome. The sound and music were awesome. Very good sound effects and the music fits right in with the other Silent Hill games. The only thing I was very disappointed about was the lack of combat. When you encounter enemies all you can do is run. You never get any weapons ever, at all. I found myself groaning in disgust when I entered the Nightmare world. Yet I would keep playing just so I could find out what happened next in the story. The only thing I was disappointed in was it didnt' seem to explain some things in the game. I might just have to play it a few more times and get different endings. But it didn't seem to explain who some of the people you ran into were and waht they had to do with Harry. Or the fact that in the Nightmare stages it was all ice. Maybe they explain these things in other endings but wish I could of found ot some of it. Replay value is high considering there are a few different endings you can get. I think the endings vary on how you answer the therapist during your sessions. (Yes you get to talk to a therapist throughout the game at various points and answer questions.) I found that kinda interesting as well. Gives the game more depth and character as you can change your answers everytime you play. The length is not bad either. About 4 or 5 hours depending on how much exploring you wanna do or what not. The puzzles are tricky but not so hard that I found myself getting frusturated and upset everytime. I believe that is how puzzles should work. I like the idea that I didn't have to backtrack so much to solve a puzzle. The solution was usually right there in the same room with me. I also liked the cell phone aspect of the game. You can use Harry's cell phone to call numbers you find or take pictures. It also supplies you with a map. It is a lifesaver if for some reason you are stuck on a puzzle. You could call numbers you found on the wall or papers or listen to voicemails you got on your phone which would mostly be big clues to the game. The map was good too for the Nightmare stages where you can easily start runnin around in circles and get lost. Overall I would rate the entire game a 7.5 or an 8 here. If you are true Silent Hill fan and appreciate the wonderful stories they tell then I would reccomend this game for you. If you are looking for a game where you get to shoot or stab enemies and don't care about story then you will be severly disappointed over this game. I am not disappointed by this game really. The only thing that was irritating like I said was the Nightmare stages. Not my favorite. I did find myself enjoying the exploring the dark hallways and streets more then the Nightmare stages. So if you love exploring and puzzles more than fighting and action this is the game for you.
it was my first silent and I thought it was a really good game. I have played other silent hill games and i though this one was better because it used the advantages of the wii. everything was great except the lack of combat. the storyline was interesting and had a lot of twists. four different endings gave it an even greater storyline. the sounds and graphics were flawless and creepy. it had a lot of challenges due to the confusing puzzles and being unable to defend yourself from enemies. it was not too long or too short. the controls are slightly difficult to use at some points or it was just me or my wii. the AI was outstanding. the camera view was just right. it was full of scares. I am a big fan of horror games and i recommend this game to all horror game fans.
