Silent Hill: Shattered Memories

Posted by | June 30, 2009

Back to the old horror mines we go…

Those who know me, know I love some Silent Hill. The first game is probably my favourite title, with the second game facing off in a pipe/whip cage match thunderdome duel with Castlevania. I’ve been unnaturally quiet on the subject of Silent Hill so far because the recent offerings from that dismal town have been lurching towers of suck and fail.

This may well change.

Silent Hill: Shattered Memories is a retelling of the original game, with its own brand new quirks and themes. Unlike certain other versions of the franchise that shall not be named but involve random truckers, this Silent Hill game seems to know what it’s doing and where it wants to go. Oh, did I mention it’s for Nintendo’s Wii?

Since the game isn’t out yet, we don’t know much of it, so I won’t talk about that. Instead, here’s a bit of an infodump to chew through and see if you can’t find some meat to gnaw off these old, rehashed bones.

The Wikipedia page is right over here, always a good read.

IGN has a page full of preview coverage, including screenshots. Check it out.
