Silent Hill: Book of Memories

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: Silent Hill: Book of Memories has been a controversial release, despised almost from the outset by fans who viewed it as a betrayal of the series, an abandonment of the survival horror trappings that apparently must be reflected in every single Silent Hill game, spin-off or otherwise.

Silent Hill: Book of Memories

Square-Go

  • Excerpt: Since the first Silent Hill game in 1999, the series has stayed the course, never slipping too far from the minds of the gamer populace and always keeping the fans eager for more. Of course, no game concept can exist and stay relevant without evolving and Silent Hill is no different.

Review: Silent Hill: Book of Memories

New Gamer Nation
9 November 2012
  • Conclusion: There is no mistaking that Book of Shadows is the most misguided attempt made on the Silent Hill series yet, completely lacking in any of the blood-curdling horror or psychological character development that once defined the series as one of the greatest horror franchises of all time.

Silent Hill: Book of Memories Review

G4
8 November 2012
  • Summary: One of the biggest issues with Silent Hill: Book of Memories is that it expects so much from players, maybe even a bit more than it has any right to.
  • Pros: Solid dungeon crawling combat, Large variety of layouts and areas to explore, Weapon degradation keeps things from becoming too easy
  • Cons: The story makes no sense at all., It doesn't really have any connection to the Silent Hill franchise., It's extremely basic and repetitive.

  • Conclusion: Concept: Shove all the monsters, weapons, and trappings of a Silent Hill game into a subpar hack n’ slash with poorly implemented roguelike elements Graphics: Impressive for a handheld.

Expert Review

GameSpot
25 October 2012
  • Summary: Plenty of franchises can make successful departures from one genre to another, whether for a one-off side story or an entirely new spin-off series. The experiment may inspire apprehension in the hearts of the series' fans, but it can also breathe much-needed life into something that's growing stale.
  • Pros: Addictive in the right circumstances, Some subtle nods to the series' past, Lots of replay value if you want it
  • Cons: Long load times, Occasionally frustrating combat, Randomized floors might involve too much backtracking

Silent Hill: Book of Memories review

Gamedot
20 November 2012
  • Conclusion: After a rather unfortunate weekend for my personal life I wanted a good distraction from a game, and being rather mindlessly repetitive in its progression, Silent Hill: Book of Memories was not the best game for the task. That said, perhaps my viewpoint of the game is tainted by these expectations.
