Summary: OK! I love the Silent Hill games, 1, 2, 3, 4, They were all great games, But Komani has disappointed me in the last couple of Silent Hill games. Silent Hill (one) was great it was the best Horror game to come to date in 99' Silent Hill 2 was the best by far, the atmospheric music, the incredible story line, and going through the mind of James. Silent Hill 3, was another great game, figuring out Heathers past, when she ended up through the nightmare of Silent Hill.
Summary: since this is my first silent hill game, i would have to say it was decent. though its definitely not worth the $30. wait for the price to drop if you want to play it. personally, i thought this game was way too short. i probably finished it in 5 hours or less. the challenge was not anything special. the puzzles weren't hard at all, mostly things that a 12 year old could come up with. the storyline, however, is phenomenal.
Summary: I have played and finished every silent hill game... seven to date including shattered memories. I love the franchise and each game. When I first heard that Shattered Memories was going to be a "re-imagining" of the original I wasn't too exited. I thought remake, and the original is an exellent game that doesn't need a remake.
Summary: Shattered Memories is an amazing game on so many levels. Just for the record this is a very different game from your typical Silent Hill game. The one main difference is that there are no weapons in this game. That's right no weapons. All you have to work with is a flashlight and a cell phone. So if/when an enemy jumps on you all you can do is shake them off and keep running. It sounds very strange but it works great.
Summary: Let me first start by explaining how Shattered Memories is played. First of all, unlike previous silent hill games, there is no inventory. Why? Because you will never have to carry anything for further than two rooms, and you will never need to carry more than one item at a time. This is mainly due to the fact that there are no puzzles.
Summary: I'm a newcomer to Silent Hill and this is the first of the series that I have played. I didn't expect anything good, but I was prooved wrong. The game is kind of like Luigi's Mansion(Every time you press X Harry calls for Cheryl), looking around finding clues, but when it comes to fighting, you're no better off than Professor E. Gad. This game is more of a puzzle and challenge game than it is about fighting monsters, but I think that's the entire point.
Summary: This game is made to be a little more like real life, there are no items just 'magically' laying around the town. Instead you have to rely on running and hiding when creatures detect you in order to loose them. It makes the game that much more scary, knowing that you can't just kill things and start exploring again. All in all a good game for those looking for something different.

Summary: The Silent Hill Games have aways enticed me and which i believe have contributed to my love of all things horror and pyschological- horror based, so i was always eager to try out the next Silent hill game going, i never wanted it to end. Thus, along came Shattered dreams and yes it did kinda 'shatter' my 'dreams' because i suppose i was expecting something more explotitative and more darker than the other Silent hill games (isn' t that what games are supposed to do, the...
Pros: Very psychological/ Brilliant Harry Mason character/ Cool Gadgets to use
Cons: Maze-like map to run around in with blue creatures chasing you/ confusing ending
Conclusion: Been playing it for a week now and I think its fantastic. I know some mags gave this a ropey review, and to be fair I understand where they are coming from. But when you actually get into the game and get to grips with the story, Shattered Memories is a welcomed remake to a now stale series.
