In this game series, there are many similarities to Resident Evil, but there are also many differences. First and foremost, it’s important to note the psychological aspects. While Resident Evil focuses on fear of monsters and infection, this game is filled with various nightmares. The first and second parts had an exciting storyline and numerous puzzles. However, the third and fourth parts lack original ideas. But when the Shattered Memories series was released, many things changed.
The new part was a complete reinterpretation of the original, which was released in 1999. However, it is not a remake. It is a completely new part that skillfully combines new and old plot elements. The game presents the player with numerous questions to solve. While the gamer is busy searching for all the answers, the game unexpectedly reaches its finale.
The story is based on the familiar protagonist, Harry Mason, who experiences an accident with his daughter. He then sets out to search for her and travels to Silent Hill. This place is a haven of horrors and nightmares. An intriguing game of victim and perpetrator begins, as the main character encounters various characters. Understanding who they really are is not an easy task. Only closer to the end, with a detailed examination of all the details, can some answers be found. But whether they will be pleasing to the gamer remains a mystery.
