Silent Hill: Shattered Memories – Final Thoughts

Trigger Warning: Discussion of domestic abuse in two of the game’s endings

The Presentation

SH: SM doesn’t have graphics as good as Team Silent’s PS2 SH games, which is kind of sad, especially since the game has some decently creative art.

I say give the series over to Climax and make them do something progressive with this series.

My Silent Hill is in shambles! I am sad.

In late 2009, I discovered a new Silent Hill game, subtitled Shattered Memories, on a list of upcoming releases at the local video store. This was the first that I’d ever heard of the game, so I had no idea what it was about, but I hated the idea of missing an entry in one of my favorite series. Therefore, I preordered it.
