The Silent Hill games are like bitter-sweet candy, except without the bitter.

IS going to suck? I have it ._. It's not all that bad if you look at it as a Diablo game with a Silent Hill theme. When I had to escort Mira the dog I was like...AWESOME they even included the dog XD Pretty much, I see it as a way to hang out with fellow Silent Hill buddies and beat some monsters. I don't really see it as a big game, more just like an amusing distraction.

Book of Memories is to Silent Hill as Dissidia is to Final Fantasy; a completely separate game. WayForward have done an amazing job with it with a unique story of their own and providing lots of content and actually fun ARPG-meets-survival-horror gameplay and I look forward to a more true-to-its-roots sequel.

The storyline so far is probably my biggest problem. Where I'm at, it's all memos, and having barely any cutscenes just makes the game a grindfest. That's not to say it isn't fun, I just wish there were more story parts to make me feel like I'm accomplishing something other than seeing my character level shoot through the roof.

I have problems with it, but i don't hate it.

It bugs me how most of the enemies and characters are from past games. I know it's meant to be fanservice but it just didn't work for me.

it's pretty fun, but it isn't meant to be taken that seriously.

I don't know, I have VERY mixed feelings towards it.
Huh? Radio? What's going on with that radio?
Four seconds later...

I guess if you think of it that way it's not so bad after all. I just think as a canon "sequal" it sucks. As a "spin-off" it's not so bad.

To me, it was made obvious that it was merely fan service when I bought Pyramid Head's face as a mask for my character for multiplayer.
Best $40 I ever spent on a Vita game, right there.

I'm not interested in playing it, and I don't think I'll ever even try it, so my opinion is completely forbidden.

I liked the demo. I'm planning on buying it once it's released in my country. Only on 11.02. :x

It depends, I have nothing against the gameplay but I'm worried about it being cannon. I'm afraid this game is going to fuck up SH's storyline even more than it already is. But I'll wait to play the game to judge it. It still looks kinda fun, since I like that type of games.

Well considering the fact it's stated that it's not a main series game, it's a spin-off. :lol:

I don't HATE BOM. HATES a strong word. I don't even HATE Jimmy Saville. He's done nothing specifically to me to HATE him.

I love BoM. It is fun as hell. I play it a few hours every day. I think it is the FUNNEST Silent Hill since 3. I also think that it's story, and lore is dangerous to the franchise.

Pretty much BoM is, as someone stated earlier, a fanservice game. One where you can battle the creatures from all games in the series (well, haven't run into the Rawshocks so far) and just take a trip down memory lane. It's not supposed to be taken seriously, it's meant just to have fun (at least I hope). As far as the story, so far it isn't anything worth mentioning. I just wish it had more of it. For gameplay, though, it's a decent little dungeon crawler, and the multiplayer is fun. I don't mind SH having spinoffs like this (hell, I wouldn't even mind a Smash Bros. style fighting game or a kart racer), just so long as the main series keeps on being good (which I can't say I particularly love the newer games, but still).

Canon does not mean it's not a Spin-Off. A spin-off can be canon as well.

I don't see why it matters though. It's not like there's anything in there that's severally game/plot changing.

I know, its just people brush it off like it no longer actually happened in the lore. Not that anyone in game will ever mention it again.
