Forums - Nintendo Discussion - I don't understand how Shattered Memories can get low scores.

The more I hear about this game, the more I want to get it ... and I am not a survival horror person.

I think the way to use reviews is to learn about the game, rather than what someone else thinks of the game.

I like to jump around, and would lead a fairly serene and aimless existence if it weren't for my friends always getting into trouble. I love to help out, even when it puts me at risk. I seem to make friends with people who just can't stay out of trouble.

Issues with the game thus far:

-Controls are a little loose and you cant adjust them. Silent hill games work better with stiff controls

- I have played for over an hour and still don't have a gun or a weapon. I don't need this to be Gears of War with chainsaws but it would be nice to fight off a bad buy or two. Running away being the only option limits the gameplay.

- There is no quick way to pull up a map. Open cell phone, push map button, push button to view full map. Worst of all, its in real time. So if you're running away from creatures you have no time to even check the map.

- And the biggest issue, fighting off bad guys and getting them off you. Its the classic..."Swing wiimote all over the room". And its not very accurate. Kinda annoying.


That part actually sounds really good to me. Kind of doesn't let you cheat out the survival horror. "Oh no they're coming to get me! Time to pause and pull out a map..." I like the thought that escape should be panicked.



I'm a mod, come to me if there's mod'n to do. 

Chrizum is the best thing to happen to the internet, Period.

Serves me right for challenging his sales predictions!

Bet with dsisister44: Red Steel 2 will sell 1 million within it's first 365 days of sales.

heh...yeah it works to make things scary for a bit.

But after you die the 5th time because you are lost and are running in circles...then it starts to frustrate. I see what they were trying to do with it though.

When you are on the part of the level where you run for your life, they have these hide spots, like under the bed or in a locker where you can hide to recover your energy. But you have to make sure the creature doesn't see you going in there. However you can't check the map when you're hiding...lol

Pressing Left on the D-pad? That's the map quick select.

I've seen the game through from start to finish and I really liked it.

Someone told me this and I'm yet to try it...so yeah, I guess reading the manual helps but whens the last time you read a game manual? Game doesn't have any contols outline under options...

I don't either, I just try every button on the controller when I first start playing.  If I still don't know how to do something I'll then read up about it.



Screw reviews, Disolitude's post said more than enough, definitely getting this game.

Always! :D I pay for it, it's part of my collection, it's something I like to evaluate too and, like you say, it sometimes give us good information.

You might want to start, at least, giving them a quick look. There are gorgeous manuals that shouldn't be missed.

haha...I do the same. however in this game, you get new controls as you play along. When you start all you can do is walk, then run. Then all of a sudden you can pull up the cell phone with the minus button...etc.
