Silent Hill: Shattered Memories proved combat wasn't needed for horror 10 years ago

GR: "Climax Studios' SILENT HILL: SHATTERED MEMORIES released 10 years ago on Dec. 8, 2009. The Sam Barlow designed Nintendo Wii title should have kicked off a new boom period for the survival horror franchise with how innovative it was, but it wasn't meant to be."

I haven't read the article yet, but I disagree with the premise. Shattered Memories was a very poor horror game, because you ALWAYS KNEW when the enemies would appear (in the "ice world" only). That removed any tension.

The original Silent Hill for PS1 is a much better game, truly frightening and always unpredictable.

SH Shatter Memories had some neat concepts and looked good on the Wii but I got bored after 2 hrs. I thought Downpour was a better game the Shattered Memories and that game is not even that great either.

Mmhmm. Same. I liked homecoming and origins much better.

Sorry it needed combat. It was just a big Chase scene. Got old real quick. Sad because it's that running crap that ruined what could have been a great game.

I grew up in a country where we didnt have the majority of consoles you guys had in the rest of the world. My consoles were a Sega 16, and a Microgenius (which I think was a knock off Nintendo NES), I traveled to UK once as a child and bought a Sega Mortal Kombat game, but it was a Sega Genesis (or whatever it was called), and the damn game wouldnt fit into my console. I resorted to cutting the edges of the cartridge to get it to fit in my desperation (imagine that)! Lol

Needless to say it wouldn't run it.

Damn lol! Our first home console was the Sega Master System! Played the controllers to shambles, the console is still live and kicking though!

I have some of these games but I have played them. Still worth a good amount though and they’re in great condition.
