Review: Silent Hill: Book of Memories (darkzero)

"Silent Hill has been all over the place during the past five years. We have had titles ranging from the mediocre Silent Hill: Homecoming, through to the decent Silent Hill: Downpour, and the excellent Silent Hill: Shattered Memories. After the disastrous port of the HD versions of Silent Hill 2 and Silent Hill 3, Konami are aiming once again to surprise us with Silent Hill: Book of Memories, a Vita title developed by WayForward (of Shantae: Risky’s Revenge fame). “Surprise?” you ask. Well, this title is not your typical Silent Hill; rather, it is a dungeon crawler fused with the visuals and enemies from the Silent Hill franchise. No longer will you be experiencing the survival horror scares and thrilling atmosphere that the series is known for. Instead, it is now replaced with an overhead perspective, hack ‘n’ slash gameplay and other action RPG features, but by transforming the game into this new direction for the franchise it ends up failing at being a good horror game or a decent action RPG." (darkzero) (PS Vita, Silent Hill: Book Of Memories) 5/10
