  • Excerpt: One of the earlier releases for the Playstation2, Shadow of Memories is a classic and unique game with a complex storyline. Unusually the game begins with the death of its protagonist, Eike Kusch, who is murdered. With the aid of a sinister benefactor he must go back through time to other eras to solve the mystery of why he was killed and prevent his death, while avoiding the other attempts on his life occurring in the present.

  • Summary: picked this up second hand after liking the sound of it, I just fell in love with it...it is a unique game, a really thoughtful time-travel-based game with multiple endings so there is room for multiple playthroughs, which did not get dull for me as I just fell in love with the game, its world, its music and its powerful plot...

Shadow of Memories - A Trip Through Time

  • Summary: If you've never experienced SoM before, my advice to those with a PS2 or compatible PS3 is to buy it now! You play as Eike Kusch, a guy with the worst luck. The games starts with your murder and then you are allowed by a mysterious stranger to go back in time and avert your death. Over the course of this wonderful game, poor Eike is subjected to his murder numerous times and at numerous time-lines.

Shadow of Memories played Review

Mr. M. Cooper "JimmyCrackenbush", amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: Good quality game and arrived as almost new. No complaints from this supplier etc. As for the game itself, I personally played it in 2003 and have to say it is one of the best graphic adventure games I have ever played - and I have been an adventure gamer since 1982 since owning a Spectrum and a Dragon 32. For me, it is very much up there with the original PC version of 'Alone In the Dark' and the original Resident Evil which made it's debut on the Playstation 1.

Classic point-and-click with a twist

  • Summary: I remember this game actually coming out around 2001/2002 and even then it stood out from the crowd. It was created at the beginning of the PS2's life though I don't think it was a launch title. It's a very engaging game with memorable characters, quotable lines, mysterious & branch plot line and multiple endings which add to the replay value. Even if the graphics don't look so impressive these days it's more than worth picking up a copy.

Who killed you and why?

  • Excerpt: Most people (those who like gaming that is) have by now purchased one of the latest games consoles, however more often than not you will still have one of the older consoles hanging around the place, I know we have. Along with a Nintendo Wii and an Xbox 360 we also still have our trusty old PS 2, that incidentally is still in great working order.
  • Pros: 6 games for the price of 1
  • Cons: Too many cut scenes

Shadow of memories, deep thought processes and gripping narrative

chibinikk..., Ciao

  • Excerpt: I picked up this game approximately two years ago in the pre owned section of a game story for around £10. I was looking for a new game and was quite drawn to the cover of this one, the graphics looked reasonable and the characters well designed. I was a bit anxious about spending £10 on a game I knew nothing about but I took the risk. The game begins with the main character Eike, who is going about his normal life until he is stabbed from behind by an unknown killer.
  • Pros: suitable for any level of gamer, interesting characters and costumes .
  • Cons: The game is a bit short and some of the challenges are slightly too easy to solve

A solid and engrossing game

  • Excerpt: Konami make some of the best and most original games on the market. Shadow of Memories, whilst not among the most popular games ever made, is a thrillingly inventive RPG-esque murder mystery, where there's no combat or "boss fights" to speak of, but the game still offers a high degree of difficulty due to some meticulously designed gameplay, in which you must attempt to solve puzzles in order to save the protagonist's life.

  • Excerpt: Eike Kusch has just died. Murdered while strolling through the German town of Lebensbaum, he shall never know the motive behind the murder. Or at least he shouldn't, but he awakens in a bizarre, inter-dimensional realm where a disembodied voice offers him the chance to go back in time and prevent his death.
