Characters can be approached but offer different responses and be found in different places, while new clues and gameplay paths can be followed. The title follows Harry Mason, as he attempts to unravel the mystery of his missing daughter, Cheryl. A broken man, Mason’s investigations lead him to the mist-shrouded, snowy streets of Silent Hill: a malevolent town where the shadows play host to a wealth of evil, misshapen creatures. Also new to Shattered Memories is a psyche profile element, which monitors every aspect of player’s reactions - from where they explore first, items that have been examined, and their reaction to those they meet. Small visual elements will also be altered slightly, adding to the oppressing atmosphere where nothing is what it seems. The psyche profile will adapt Harry’s actions as and when he meets normal-looking people or the game's many inhuman denizens. [Konami] Expand

  1. It's an unorthodox approach to Silent Hill, but Shattered Memories is certainly intriguing. Just be prepared for a more methodically paced, cerebral experience.

    Some fans may be disappointed with the lack of weapons at first, but the developers have managed to create an excellent alternative. The loneliness and the nightmares create a sensation of fright, increased by the game toying with you psychologically. It does so by using information you give it, whether consciously or not. Combining that with a strong storyline, wonderful graphics and entertaining puzzles, makes this game come highly recommended for every horror-survival fan looking for a change.
  3. This isn't going to do much for you if you're not already a fan of horror games, but longtime Silent Hill fans should really appreciate this particular release.

    Silent Hill Shattered Memories will probably feel like a shallow version of the series to veteran players. But as a standalone title it represents a niche that is intelligent, thoughtful and meaningful.

    New chapter to the horror series returns to its roots and brings a slight change in visual style. Next time we ask for less ice and more rot and fear please. [Feb 2010]
  6. If you’re interested in a solid, nerve-shredding jaunt through familiar territory with a few curve-balls thrown in to make the experience somewhat novel, however, Silent Hill: Shattered Memories delivers all the chills and uneasiness the series is renown for.
  7. Silent Hill: Shattered Memories is frankly, one of the better PSP games I've played. It's certainly not the best on the system, but it's certainly pretty and the sound design is through the roof with proper headphones.

    Also, this game will evaluate you psychologically, and use this information against you. My advice - play it yourself (desirable in headphones) and enjoy!

    The most creepy Silent Hill game for sure, the point of running from the monsters and do not have weapons make it a great horror game.

Not a 9 because this game puzzles were just too hard for my mind. Expand
