TGS: Silent Hill: Book of Memories isn't heavy reading
by Allistair Pinsof

Let's be honest: The Silent Hill name was tarnished long ago. Somewhere between that awful Hollywood film and The Room, a game that was never supposed to and never should have been a Silent Hill entry. Things have gotten even worse over the years, from what I hear and read. Within this context, Book of Memories may be the best thing to happen to the series in some time because it is, in the very least, competent.

WayForward (Contra 4, Aliens: Infestation) are taking the survival horror out of the series and putting a top-down action-RPG in its place. If you are a fan of games like Baulder's Gate: Dark Alliance or Torchlight, you may find this a welcome addition to your Vita library. The combat feels good, smart use of touch controls makes managing inventory a breeze, and the signature sounds of the series give the game some familiarity.
