While Silent Hill: Shattered Memories shares its twisting plot with the original PlayStation game, it takes a different path in many, many ways. Characters can be approached but will offer different responses and be found in different places, while new clues and gameplay paths can be followed. Shattered Memories follows Harry Mason, as he attempts to unravel the mystery of his missing daughter, Cheryl. A broken man, Mason's investigations lead him to the mist-shrouded, snowy streets of Silent Hill: a malevolent town where the shadows play host to a wealth of evil, misshapen creatures.

Designed to make full use of the Wii's unique controllers, Shattered Memories uses the Wii Remote as a torch and cell phone as Mason looks for clues. The torch is vital for scouring the darkened, abandoned buildings of Silent Hill, while the phone acts as a secondary user interface, allowing the player to access maps via its GPS capabilities and take pictures of interesting elements. Likewise, the Wii Remote also can be used to pick up, examine and manipulate items to solve puzzles along the journey. Such technology was not available when the original Silent Hill was released in 1999, and its inclusion showcases Konami's determination to enhance the playing experience with new, available technology.

Also new to Shattered Memories is a psyche profile element, which monitors every aspect of player's reactions - from where they explore first, items that have been examined, and their reaction to those they meet. Small visual elements have also been altered slightly, adding to the oppressing atmosphere where nothing is what it seems. The psyche profile will adapt Harry's actions as and when he meets normal-looking people or the game's many inhuman denizens.

Silent Hill: Shattered Memories also features an all-new soundtrack by series composer Akira Yamaoka.
  • A re-imagining of the original Silent Hill that turns everything you thought you knew on its head!
  • The game watches you and adapts to your actions to create a unique experience to each player and intensify their fears.
  • Implementation of a cell phone as the user interface, which acts as a storytelling device, map, puzzle helper, and camera that provides seamless flow with no interruption in gameplay.
  • New nightmare sequence focus on escape and evasion rather than direct confrontation.
  • Silent Hill: Shattered Memories feature an all-new soundtrack by acclaimed series composer Akira Yamaoka.

 An engrossing and unnervingly atmospheric game.

Fans of the SIlent Hill series and fans of adventure and horror titles should definitely give this game the time it deserves.

After a car crash in the town of Silent Hill, Harry Mason awakens to find his car wrecked and his daughter missing. With the snow falling thick and darkness surrounding him he grabs a torch from his car and then ventures off into the town to find out where or what may have happened to his daughter Cheryl.

As he delves deeper into the town Harry meets a few characters along the way and also has the town transform in front of him leaving the once empty streets and corridors covered in ice. This is where things start to get really strange and a sense of panic sets in as you realise the town is very different and the inhabitants are no longer friendly or human in nature.

Breaking up this gameplay are first person events where you are placed in a psychiatrists office having yourself profiled and answering all meaning of questions and tests. Fans of Silent Hill will most likely agree that the most interesting part of the series are how much the games can play with your mind. This was lost with some of the later games but here the developers have gone back to basics and have not only made this latest entry unnervingly strange, but have also brought you along for the ride. It is an interesting take and works well within the story and and overall theme of the series.

The game uses great use of the Wii remote pointer for aiming the torch and is also used for examining objects, opening cuboards etc. Motion control is used for throwing off enemies etc and works well if you learn the motions. Puzzles are mostly well thought out with the occasional dud here and there but all in all, nothing really game breaking.

This is a different take, but in my eyes, a great return to the Silent Hill franchise. Graphics, sound and controls are very good and this is a great entry to the Wii library. So grab the controller, sit down, turn the lights off and go search for your missing child. The experience is certainly worth it.

 Absolutely brilliant

Though not strictly what you might expect from a Silent Hill title, and quite a short game (6 maybe 7 hours, but there are 5 endings so replay is a must) this game is really amazing on the Wii - the wiimote controls your high beam torch and the nunchuck controls movement.
There are no weapons in this game - that's right, no weapons, so make sure you can run.... fast.
Very creepy atmosphere and brilliant storyline with a great twist in this 5 possible endings story.
Buy it - you won't regret it.

 Fantastic

Very different and draws you in within minutes with intuitive controls and entertaining cut scenes. Its a mind game rather than an action game. As the previous person said: NO GUNS - if thats what your after look no further

 great game
