Boring

  • Summary: Maybe I just don't 'get it' but this is one boring game! Also gave me a headache trying to see things with just a virtual torch!

Worth the pain

  • Summary: While this is definitely not the best game of the Silent Hill series - mainly due to the fact that it can be hard and loses its scare factor - I ended up really enjoying the story and wanting to start all over again!

Nintendo's instalment of Silent Hill has wowed fans around the globe.

  • Excerpt: It's quite surprising how a game franchise can be the influence for numerous films and games. Silent Hill is the exception, since we would expect no less from Team Silent. The first game I played in the franchise was Silent Hill 3 around 4-5 years ago. It still scares me now as it did when I was 14. At that age all I wanted to do was kill monsters. But now replaying the game I've found myself less obsessed with combat, and more obsessed with the puzzles and storyline.
  • Pros: Everything about the game is fantastic .  Graphics and sound are both beautiful .  Compelling storyline .
  • Cons: At the most a couple of graphical bugs but nothing major .

Unique and actually quite scary...

  • Excerpt: I'd played other Silent Hill games before, but never on the Wii. This one is rather different and takes a bit of a diversion from the original games/storyline. I won't go into this too much, as I don't want to spoil it for anyone. Needless to say, it's still a fantastic game. There are plenty of opportunities to solve puzzles and have a good hunt around, as well as killing creatures.
  • Pros: Great gameplay, good mix of action and puzzle solving, scary !
  • Cons: Fighting enemies gets a bit confusing and difficult .

Be cautious before buying!

  • Summary: This game is definitely not for the average gamer who is used to kill enemies of some sort; it doesn't matter who or what. Why? Because you won't be able to shoot or beat anything for the first time in a Silent Hill game. The only things you can do are run, solve puzzles and have sessions with your psychiatrist. Even if two of those things are fine, the running parts of Shattered Memories are what makes the experience a lot less enjoyable.

Gameplay quickly gets repetitive

  • Summary: It's a good game, but not if you paid full price for it. It's a pretty good adventure/horror game and the atmosphere is great. Trouble is the "combat" becomes repetitive very quickly - find a route through a maze whilst avoiding getting caught. If it developed these sequences to introduce some variety I'd rate it much higher.

Shattered Gameplay

The Dude, amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: The story is ok, the ending is what makes up for the less interesting parts. I have played ALL Silent Hill games and I must say this is easily the worst one. The game consists of two "realities". One is the real world, where you will NEVER encounter anything dangerous. Just solve some rather mundane puzzles (like "turn-the-knob with your wii control") and for some odd reason take pictures of "disturbances" with your handy, only to receive voicemail from people involved...

Silent Hill Shattered Dreams.

  • Excerpt: Hi hi hi there my little drooges, today uncle will spin you a yarn about Silent Hill Shattered Memories or more aptly “re-imagined” (by yours truly); Silent Hill shattered dreams... or less aptly entitled silent fart splattered poo. You don’t have to be Columbo to catch on that I wasn’t exactly enthralled by this “re-imagining” of a classic. I myself am a pretty big silent hill fan, silent hill 2 and 4 do things that a lot of other survival horrors couldn’t dream of.
  • Pros: Looks pretty, innovative design and interesting with a cool ending .
  • Cons: Poor gameplay, no replayability, annoying controls, terrible puzzles and in no way scary .
