Shattered memories of past glories,
This review is from: Silent Hill: Shattered Memories (PS2) (Video Game)
I found Shattered Memories a major disappointment. Gameplay in the 'normal world' is dull because there are no enemies. Gameplay in the 'other world' is interesting, in that you must evade enemies by throwing down obstacles or hiding until they pass, but suspense quickly subsides after the first few experiences. Running aimlessly from door to door trying to escape the 'other world' maze becomes monotonous and annoying. Silent Hill built it's reputation on maintaining a suspensful atmosphere throughout, with amazing music and great enemy design. This game has little of either and can sadly be summarised by one word that no Silent Hill game should ever be: BORING. I hope the next installment returns to the glories of past.
