Silent Hill: Book of Memories
3 November 2012
Excerpt: Assumptions can be made when it comes to the dungeon crawler Silent Hill: Book of Memories , just based on the series and genre it belongs to, and those assumptions would be wrong. It’s a Silent Hill game, but that doesn’t mean it’s scary. It’s a dungeon crawler, but loot isn’t the main objective. Rather, it borrows elements to craft a unique combination of both ideas, filtered together to create a cohesive whole.
Excerpt: The Silent Hill series has gone through peaks and troughs throughout its existence. It has had a great deal of difficulty in returning to its former glory, as has much of the survival horror genre in general. Book of Memories takes the series in a new direction with the game play and moving away from the traditional psychological horror that Silent Hill is known for.
Review: Silent Hill: Book of Memories Tries Something New…And It Mostly Works (PS Vita)
27 October 2012
Excerpt: For the longest time, Silent Hill always followed a traditional set-up, a third-person adventure with plenty of spooks and chills. But lately, I can't help but feel things are getting a little burned-out, especially with Silent Hill Downpour, a game that's been hyped up to no end and ended up fizzling out under the weight of its own premise. That's why it's refreshing to see something along the lines of Silent Hill: Book of Memories .
Silent Hill: Book of Memories – Auf der PlayStation Vita im Test
21 December 2012
Summary: Mit der Silent-Hill-Serie begründete Konami auf der PlayStation One das Genre des Survival Horror neu. Doch nach den großen Anfangserfolgen ebbte der Hype um die amerikanische Kleinstadt langsam ab. Zeit also, dass die Japaner mit ihrem ersten Silent Hill für die PlayStation Vita neue Wege gehen und dem Horror einen neuen Anstrich verpassen. Wir haben uns für euch nach Silent Hill gewagt, um das frische Konzept zu testen.
Cons: - Auf lange Sicht zu eintönig, - Wenig Abwechslung abseits der Action, - Gebiete sehen alle gleich aus, - Hat kaum etwas mit Silent Hill zu tun, - Nerviges Speichersystem, - Instabile Server im Multiplayer
Conclusion: Strana bestia questo Book of Memories. Se da un lato si discosta dalla serie sia per il gameplay che per alcune scelte stilistiche (il character design degli umani e dei boss lascia interdetti), d'altro canto offre anche un gameplay estremamente curato ed appassionante, unito ad una realizzazione tecnica pregevole.
