    Silent Hill: Shattered Memories is genuinely unsettling and mysterious, with frighting presentation and disturbing, extremely scary but good game play. Silent Hill: Shattered Memories is realistic and absorbing, it is a really frightening experience, with lots of smartness, unpredictability and twisted endings. Unfortunately, Silent Hill: Shattered Memories is short to 6 or 7 hours game play, despite being short which doesn't really matters, it splits into 2 game plays, it is half puzzle and half action, there is puzzles which are hard but smart and tricky, and there is flash light action, and only flash light, no weapons, yes no weapons which is more scarier, when its frozen you just have to run and push the monsters away, which is hard but fun and unpredictable, because monsters are smart and they drag you, appear in front of you, behind you, you could never now. So despite that Silent Hill: Shattered Memories is short on story and plot, it is terrifying as hell mysterious and realistic, with tons of smartness and horrific fun. 96/100 Expand

    Im just gonna start of by saying that i knew this game was completely different than the others in the series and i was interested in how the game would play out. Turns out that i really did like this game. Even though its so much different than the others in the series it really impressed me. The amount of detail put into it was amazing and the puzzles i found were good, even though some of them had me scratching my head. When i realized combat was taken out of the game i was a little worried but i found it a great addition. It made the nightmare sequences much more panicky than the other games. The games story, i believe, is brilliant. Im not gonna spoil anything but after beating the game i was left in awe. I was amazed at how much i got into the game, especially during some of the nightmare sequences (like the nowhere like area) some of it just amazed me by how psychologically this game was. People would rather pass up on this game cause theres no shooting and what not and thats fine. But please dont complain about it, alot of shooting games are absolutely terrible and id honestly prefer this game if people like a deep story and like to figure things out. Expand

    I tried playing this on the wii with poor results, then I played through on ps2 with much more success. It's hard to articulate the ups and downs of this game, the action sequences feel mildly thrilling but quickly become a trial and error race to the end of a maze, the normal play sequences are about exploration and it's interesting phoning some of the numbers made available in the game (there's like 80 numbers to call!). The truth is the ending is the real reward... Expand

  1. Here's what you will recognize: a convoluted plot involving a missing daughter and rampant, depraved ghosts; frequent switching between the "real" world and a ghastly nightmare realm; and many locked doors with craftily hidden keys.
  2. Shattered Memories was an attempt at doing something different with the Silent Hill series. Unfortunately, just because something is different doesn't mean it's better.

    The PS2 iteration is no slouch, either. It very closely resembles the Wii incarnation and controls well enough with dual-analog sticks that gamers who don't own both systems won't miss the Wii remote. Meanwhile, since the content is otherwise identical, there's great fun to be had.
