Itchy Thumbs writes: "This game contains scenes of explicit violence and gore" is the message that survival horror games of old used to greet us with. In doing so our horror taste-buds would tingle at the thought of blowing off zombie heads and such. Once you load up Shattered Memories, the juicy screen message ignores hardcore violence and dismemberment and tells you it "plays you as much as you play it." The 'in your face' horror has been replaced with psychological mind mess. Something we haven't seen in Silent Hill since James Sunderland ventured into town looking for his dead wife."
