Silent Hill: Book of Memories Review | Game-Over

Game-Over writes:

"Historically, handheld versions of popular console games have always suffered from technological limitations. While the console version of a title would be a gorgeous looking game with compelling gameplay, the handheld iteration would always fall short in one or more aspects. In more recent times, the handheld versions of various titles have been created as “side stories” or “spin-offs,” most of the time not even being considered as storyline canon. This provides fans with a mental back door, allowing them to dismiss a potentially inferior product as something that “doesn’t count” toward the general lore of the series. The Silent Hill series has always been creepy fun on the various consoles, so Konami has released the spin-off adventure Book of Memories for Sony’s new Vita handheld. While it can be said that the creepiness factor is automatically lost on a title that you can sit and play at a bus stop, its decent mix of survival horror and dungeon crawling do provide some addictive, horrific fun." (PS Vita, Silent Hill: Book Of Memories) 75/100
