Summary: Great survival horror game, it's just like playing a psychological thriller movie. Very few games keep me playing just to see what comes next, but this one does it. It has clever puzzles and is very thought provoking, with a top-notch storyline and high creepyness factor. If you're all about the FPS/ResEvil type game, don't bother.
Summary: it was my first silent and I thought it was a really good game. I have played other silent hill games and i though this one was better because it used the advantages of the wii. everything was great except the lack of combat. the storyline was interesting and had a lot of twists. four different endings gave it an even greater storyline. the sounds and graphics were flawless and creepy.
Summary: ...Not a very good Silent Hill game. It does incorporate the Wii features very well, but lacks the Silent Hill feel. I also don't think you can call it a reimagining of the first one. All they really have in common are the chracter names. The story line differs a bit. Taking out the combat was a bit of a risky move, especially with only one enemy. It makes it seem like a Pyramid Head monster all over again, except he screams like a girl and gets really annoying.
Summary: This game has great atmosphere, and the tests and its repercussions make it a great experience. The Wiimote control behaves great at the use of its speaker is a nice feature (and if you don't like it, you can change the speaker voice to come from the TV). The only real sin of this game is calling itself Silent Hill, where killing enemies and the constant fear of the enemies waiting for you behind the next corner is a distinct feature (something this game lacks).
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. In fact, unlike most of the other games, the creatures only come ...
Pros: Great gameplay, good mix of action and puzzle solving, scary !
Cons: Fighting enemies gets a bit confusing and difficult .
Summary: SH:Shattered Memories is a great reimagining of the original Silent Hill. Like the first game, you play as Harry Mason, a clean, regular father having a drive with your 6-year old daughter Sarah. When your car swerves and crashes into a post, you black out. When you wake up, it's dark out,your daughter's gone, and all you have is a flashlight.
Summary: Shattered Memories is a decent game, but it seems to suffer from a bit of a plodding pace. The controls are pretty good, but mine (I can't speak for other people of course) tended to go a bit haywire from time to time, which led to some very frustrating moments... which then led to screeches of deeply un-manly frustration as I got reset to the last waypoint.
Summary: I recently bought resident evil 4 on the wii and after playing that for ages, i bought this game. I enjoyed this game very much, as it is a completely different take on the horror genre to resident evil. Now this game is by no means as good as resident evil 4 but its still fun to play. The exploration scenes are really interesting along with some cool, if not difficult puzzles. The nightmare scenes are fun and unsettling but they do drag on a bit.
Summary: Pros:- - Engaging storyline with a very creepy pschological feel, reminiscent of early Silent Hill games - Graphics are amazing for the wii. People you're talking to freeze in to ice sculptures mid conversation when a nightmare is happening, which is really creepy but graphically superb. The light and the shadow effects cast by the light of the torch are beautifully haunting.
Summary: The first Wii outing for Silent Hill is probably going to be a tad disappointing for most fans as it's out there on its' own when it comes to the gameplay. But if you accept this from the outset, it's still an interesting and absorbing chapter in the series. There are no dead nurses or 3 legged dogs biting your ankles as you explore the abandoned town; the creatures only appear when the scene shifts into nightmare zone and then you need to run like the clappers as you...
