Silent Hill: Shattered Memories isn't out in the UK yet but developer Climax has told ONM that it would like the opportunity to make another game in the horror series.
Shattered Memories is one of the best games on the Wii!!! Too short for a purchase, but worth the rental.
Please a sequel! I loved it!
Can't wait to pick up this game when it's released in Europe. I'm currently enjoying Overlord: Dark Legend on the Wii(Another game by Climax) and I've got to say it's very underrated. Looks really good, gameplay works excellently with the Wiimote(better than the 360 and PS3 overlord), good writing. The only real flaw is that it's simplified compared to the original but I think it actually works in it's favour.
Hooray climax :)
Climax are doing really well on the Wii, Sam Barlow (Climax developer): "Without badmouthing people, a lot of the games they've been complaining about are rail shooters and a rail shooter wouldn't have sold no matter what platform you put it on because it's a rail shooter and that's a niche genre that had its heyday back in the Dreamcast era." now thats a smart developer
Here's hoping for James Sunderland revisioned!
The Wii is a good platform for what it is, but its not the train I want to catch to Silent Hill. Develop for 360/PS3, and then port to Wii.
Keep the HD SH's like Homecoming on those systems and games like Shattered Memories on the Wii. The game is awesome, you want to play it get a Wii. If not..then why are you even in a Wii section?
Considering the most recent two games, they could easily just have both of the two developers that made Homecoming and Shattered Memories, respectively, continue to make Silent Hill games. After all, Climax Group didn't make the PS360 Silent Hill game.
Well the reason Shatter Memories is Wii/PSP/PS2 is because Homecoming was a bomb. It'd have to be a really low budget HD Silent Hill to make it's money rather than a relatively high budget SD Silent Hill which will still makes it's money.
@arius I partially agree with you, but I must also say Im enjoying the game so much, and have wanted a game like this for a long time, that I can't help but just wish they made the same game with better graphics. I know graphics don't make a game, because like I said Im enjoying it, but this game would be unreal if it had more sophisticated graphics. As a side not, the whole camera feature was just genius, obstructing and darking the vision like it does just makes everything so... creepy.
Its just me but I felt SH's graphics on Wii are fantastic. The lighting itself looks like something previously thought not to be possible on the system. And Sorry, but I don't think resolution, polygon count, or shaders would fundementally change the experience this game offers.
I like climax and i'd like to see them continue to make silent hill games. Hopefully with the next installment they can factor in some scares and if they keep up the lack of combat that really need to switch it up because those chase scenes got really annoying towards the end of the game. Clock Tower for the psx is a great example of a game that lacks combat but will scare the crap out of you when the villain comes into the scene with his giant hedge clippers. Siren: Blood Curse is another good example of a game that lacks combat in some scenarios but remains extremely scary. I'm curious to see what is in store for the Silent Hill series, the 2nd movie is in its pre-production stages I think and I don't think Konami is going to drop the Silent Hill games, it's one of its flagship series and it seems at the moment that it's going through some growth pains due to developer changes and changes in gameplay. Hopefully Akira Yamaoka isn't completely done with the series and Konami will hire him as a freelance worker to help with upcoming games in the series.
why did i get a disagree?
Perhaps someone thought there were a sufficient number of scares in SH:SM? Dunno. Gave you an agree, though. ; ) I'd like to see some sort of barebones combat. The flashlight mechanic is brilliant...but you pretty much are holding a MAG light at all times, and those suckers can do some damage.
Make a sequel, make it epic.
I would really like that the "Shattered Memories" series would be exclusive to Nintendo consoles... after all, it did start on a Nintendo console. Silent Hill Shattered Memories was easily one of the best if not the best game of the Wii in 2009... for my European friends, you won't be disappointed... yes... its short but with 5 different endings it'll surely expand the replay value... Did I mention it runs at 60fps!!! Like a First Party Nintendo Game!!!! Kudos to Climax!!!!
It's not exclusive to nintendo. I have it on the psp and it's also available on the ps2. The wii version is the definitive version for visuals but all 3 are the same in terms of content.
You didn't read my post correctly... Of course its on PSP and PS2... That's why I said "I would like the Shattered Memories series (if they do more games) to be exclusive to Nintendo consoles...
Is Exclusive though. Honestly not too many retailers are stocking this Wii game any way. You'd be even MORE hardpressed to find this game for the PS2/PSP. I think Konami said as much too about their Sony shipments for this game. Which makes sense simply because PS2 is a limping corpse now, and PSP in America is a non factor. The games good though, and was made with Wii in mind. Plus Climax has said they are happy with the reception of the title so who knows. Its definitely a better game than the dreadful Homecoming (but that was made by a different studio).
yea, my mistake. I misread your post. I've seen it in stores for both the wii and psp but there are no stores near me that carry ps2 games. It is a heck of a deal though for whoever finds it, i think its only 20 dollars for the ps2?
