I've never played a Silent Hill game. My wife remembers seeing the first Silent Hill game played, and she remembers it as being scary.
I've read a lot of player comments about Silent Hill: Shattered Memories on the Wii.
I've read that it's about 6 hours in terms of a single play-through, but that the game has multiple endings and things can change each time you play the game, according to how you answer some questions at the beginning.
One thing I wonder about though, is why the Wii version of the game has a MSRP currently of $49.99, while the PS2 version of the game has a MSRP of just $29.99.
Have you played Silent Hill: Shattered Memories on the Wii?
If so, would you recommend the game to other Wii owners like myself, that maybe have never played any of the Silent Hill games before?

Silent Hill: Shattered Memories is a VERY good game. It's creepy as heck, and the play time is more than 6 hours if you really search throught the game, look around, and find all the momentos. My friend is an avid Silent Hill fan, and he says Shattered Memories is his favorite, and that Silent Hill 2 comes in a close second for him. I'm playing it now, and for the Wii the game has great graphics, very creepy sound, and the gameplay/controls are well above average. The game changes as you play it, not just based on questions at the beginning. There are therapy sessions throughout, plus what you investigate also can change what happens in the game. I do recommend it!ReplyDelete
Yes! I definately recommend this game to all Wii owners or any Silent Hill fans. Unlike past games there is no combat in this game, you're just running for your life. The Wii controls can get a bit frustrating, so remember to make simple swift motions with the wii-mote and not flail around too much. Also when running through the mazes, look for doors that are different from the other ones, those are clues to the right direction. On teh psychological tests, try and pretend that you are taking them for real so do them seriously and truthfully, the pay-off will be much better as you play through the game and realize what it does. Other than that the story and experience are worth getting this game for! There is nothing like it on the Wii, and it certainly achieves its place in how to tell an interactive story in a game.ReplyDelete

I didn't realize the therapy sessions and game-play changed so far into the game.
Thanks for that info!

I have read about the "simple swift motions" versus "flailing" in the game.
I like the idea of the psychological test within the game, and those tests affecting things in the game.
Thank you both for the comments!
The price difference is because the platform warrants it. Until the Wii is under 100.00 and in it's last year of life, you can't expect them to match the pricing of those found in the PS2 version. That is one aspect, the other is the unique features that undoubtedly increased the development pipeline thanks to the Wii. Most notable, the motion control and the unique use of the remote speaker.ReplyDelete
It is a realy good game, but not everyone will like it. Its a game that prides itself on storytelling and emercing the player in this world. I didn't play it multiple times yet , but from what i seen online, cutscenes and envirment change based on your choices. The game is truly playing you. It might not apeal to the player that picks up Cod once in a wile and doesn't like adventure games, but anyone into story telling and imersion will like itReplyDelete

While I don't doubt motion control and the use of the Wii remote speaker take more time to develop, they also had to take time for the team to port it over to the PS2.
Time is money in developing a game.
Now, do you think the Wii could be selling for $100 right now?

Interesting about the cut-scenes changing, I didn't even think about that.
I've heard that Fragile is another game that's more about the storytelling aspect, than the action.
Thanks for the comments!
