  1. While Silent Hill: Shattered Memories is a total departure in every way from what Konami proper had started, it manages to reinvigorate the series. This "re-imagining" could have been a story rehash, instead we get a brilliantly deep game with subtle subtext and surprising symbolism.
  2. Shattered Memories is in some ways a true return to form for the series, although with recent news of Akira Yamaoka—whose music and vision has consistently defined the series—leaving Konami, it may be the last true Silent Hill game, period.

    If you like survival horror games and you have a Wii, buy this immediately. Buy a second copy in case the first one wears out. If you don't have a Wii, hire one to play this. It's that good. Just don't play it alone - it's that good.
  4. If you ever want to create a horror game for a console gaming machine, than Silent Hill Shattered Memories should be used as your template. Not only it is an extremely well written game but the gameplay is quite sturdy on the Wii and is easily one of the better titles available at present.
  5. Packed with inventive ideas and one engaging sequence after another, it's a spirited, poignant and unsettling game that not only delivers a long-overduereturn to form, but reinvigorates horror adventures in the process.
  6. Short, but terrifying. Buy it, enjoy it, wet the bed later.
  7. Play it for the atmosphere, play it for the suspense, play it for the story; we don’t care, just don’t miss out on one of the best Wii games this year.
  8. Silent Hill Shattered Memories is a special game, in which you don’t fight, you just run for your life. Not only Wii players looking for a nice thrill ride should have a look at this game.
  9. It’s one of the most innovative and enjoyable survival horrors for many a year.
  10. Silent Hill: Shattered Memories fills a gap in the Wii's horror lineup, and it does so with finesse and substance. It is a game that can be appreciated by anyone craving a good psychological thriller that makes good use of motion controls and in doing so, appeals directly to the Wii's core audience.
  11. If you’re one of those people who is sick of all those party games on Nintendo’s loveable, family-friendly console, and are crying out for a proper, grown up videogame, look no further than this.
  12. If you never played the original of PlayStation, it's obligatory to play this. For who have already played, it's interesting check out the new features that were inserted and affect the gameplay.
  13. An incredibly immersive and original adventure in the midst of snow and ice, with one of the most memorable plots in a long time. Highly recommended for anyone who enjoy slow paced and intelligent games. [Apr 2010]
  14. Silent Hill: Shattered Memories is without a doubt one of the year’s finest games, and is another example of a well made third-party game for the Wii.
  15. Silent Hill: Shattered Memories is a masterpiece of atmosphere. Konami has reinvigorated the series with an innovative and unsettling game. A great strong visuals, a well implemented motion controls. The best survival horror on Wii, a must have experience.
  16. Shattered Memories is actually a reinterpretation of the very first Silent Hill game. We still don't know if this is a new beginning for the series or an isolated experiment, however Climax did a great job putting together an unique atmosphere, a lot of interesting solutions and a smart use of the motion-sensitive controls. One of the best and most adult experiences on Wii so far.

    My absolute favorite survival horror game of all time. Mind blowing graphics and effects and a truly involved, dark story with many twistsMy absolute favorite survival horror game of all time. Mind blowing graphics and effects and a truly involved, dark story with many twists depending on how you play and answer the psych profiles. A melancholy game for those with true "mature" tastes.

The Silent Hill Shattered Memories is a game made whit passion, and Climax made a great job, creating a game unique, never seen before. The graphic is very good for Wii and the lights effects are simply fantastic. The game didn't scary me, but it has a great atmosphere. The puzzles are not very hard, but they're very funny. The story is something excellent. In fact this is a great game for Wii, and anyone should have it! Full Review »
