Rikku: “This Al Bhed girl formed the Gullwings together with her brother. While the spheres they hunt may reveal a frightening past, Rikku does not avert her eyes from the truth, striding forward and bringing hope to Paine and Yuna despite all.”
Trigger Warning: Discussion of domestic abuse in two of the game’s endings
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 don’t remember having any problems with the audio. The voice acting was decent.
The music was pretty good, though not as iconic as the earlier games in the series, probably because the game is not as iconic as the earlier games, and has a different feel overall.
Classic SH theme songs rear their head in “Always on My Mind”, “When You’re Gone”, “Acceptance”, and “Hell Frozen Rain”, despite some tryhard lyrics and titles. Some of the ambient songs stand out, such as the creepy “Devil’s Laughter” and “Ice”.
February 1st, 2010: I don’t understand why Konami bothered to do such a radical remake of Silent Hill, and for systems that are now outdated (the PS2) or not really for the fanbase (the Wii). If it’s really supposed to be a reboot, why not make a AAA game?
I say give the series over to Climax and make them do something progressive with this series.
