Silent Hill Shattered Memories Screen Shots

Silent Hill Shattered Memories is a Adventuring game available on the Wii PSP. It can be played in Thirdperson modes.

Silent Hill Shattered Memories is a Adventuring game. Adventure games are enjoyed for two reasons: they provide enemy encounters that require tactics and strategy to conquor, and they create a fantasy world in which to explore and adventure.

Silent Hill Shattered Memories can be played in a Thirdperson mode. Third Person games view the world from over the right shoulder of the character being controlled. This enables you to see the character you are controlling as well as their surrounds. Although not as immersive as first person, third person games enable more complex moves and interactions with the environment.

Frugal Gamer review Sat, 03 Apr 2010

Taking the series in a brave new direction, Silent Hill Shattered Memories for the Wii creates a powerful and unsettling atmosphere with its blend of traditional creepiness and psychological horror. A re-imagining rather than a cheap remake of the original game, this new version from Climax Studios profiles you as a player, adjusting the characters and environment to make the experience personal and disturbing. Unlike any other Wii game you will rent this year.

Loosely following the plot line of the first Silent Hill game, Shattered Memories follows the story of Harry Mason, a father searching for his daughter in a strange, abandoned town after a car crash in the snow. Though this premise might sound familiar to players of the original, Shattered Memories takes the series in a subtle direction that will interest both Silent Hill veterans and newcomers alike.

Soulful Gamer review Fri, 26 Mar 2010

Breathing an icy-like blast of fresh air into a tired franchise, Silent Hill: Shattered Memories for the PSP is a beautifully atmospheric and thoughtful re-imagining of the Silent Hill series. The way the game profiled me as I played meant the emotional story carried far more weight than I was expecting. Though it never went as deep with the issues of family, love and sex than I would have liked, it still gave me an unsettling experience that lives long in the memory.

Silent Hill has always been a series that's intrigued me with its psychological and tense horror. It's also been a series I've never had the chance to experience first-hand due to never owning a PlayStation 2 during its heyday and being put off by the criticisms regarding the combat system. Fortunately in this re-imagining of the very first game, Climax Studios have completely removed the combat and replaced it with 'nightmare passages' in which you're pursued by grotesque pale-skinned monsters.

Returning Gamer review Fri, 26 Mar 2010

Silent Hill: Shattered Memories Wii played both with my psyche and my expectations of the franchise. Returning to the series, I was surprised how things unfolded, and it wasn't until the end it all made beautiful sense leaving me wanting to play through it again.

Another year and another Silent Hill game might be the cynic's view of Shattered Memories but, for anyone that is a fan and I include myself in that category, this is one of the more interesting entries in the long running series. I was particularly excited by Silent Hill: Shattered Memories because it returns to the story of the first PlayStation game and promised some clever use of the Wii controls. Also released on PSP and PS2, which obviously don't have the motion controls, I was also interested to see whether it was just those features that make Shattered Memories worth playing.

Scared Gamer review Mon, 15 Mar 2010

Silent Hill Shattered Memories breaks free from its established story and transforms the game into something fresh and unerving. Turning the focus on the audience, the game builds its tension around the player's responses and interactions, offering a bespoke horror experience.

Silent Hill Shattered Memories is not a remake of the first game, but a re-imagining. It is an important distinction to make because it was this original version that set the dark tone each successive title was shrouded in. By moving away from these conventions Shattered Memories is able to create a novel new take on the Silent Hill franchise. Instead of trying to recreate the events of the first game, the latest title contents itself with an abstraction of the first games' story, while maintaining an ethos of psychological horror.

Tech Gamer review Thu, 17 Dec 2009

Silent Hill: Shattered Memories is a re-imagining of the original Silent Hill for the Nintendo Wii. Using the unique Wii controls expertly to build a tremendous atmosphere and increase the tension of the game, Shattered Memories follows the story of Harry Mason, searching for his daughter in a strange, abandoned town. With an excellent soundtrack provided by Akira Yamaoka and the game eschewing combat entirely, this is a true survival horror game for a new generation.

The original Silent Hill was a masterful display of atmosphere within a videogame, with memorable characters and an oppressive feeling of dread creeping into your mind every time you played. Those early Silent Hill games with their stories of suffering, affliction and revenge are exactly what Silent Hill: Shattered Memories tries to replicate on the Nintendo Wii and succeeds at every turn.
