    This review is from: Silent Hill: Shattered Memories (Video Game)

    I thought I’d write a review of Silent Hill: Shattered Memories (which I ordered from Amazon) to balance out the few bad reviews that were being written.

    First off, it’s a good game. It deserves a good review.

    Second, it has NO load times. Apparently, Nintendo is good at this sort of thing. It’s always fun opening up a door without having to wait for a load screen to get done. And it’s really cool to see Harry’s hand on the doorknob pulling or pushing open the door. Real-time transformation from normal Silent Hill to Nightmare Silent Hill is horror movie quality stuff.

    Third, gorgeous graphics. Now, the thing is, a lot of people say that graphics are how you can tell a lot of love went into a game, and that’s just NOT true. However, when gorgeous graphics ACCOMPANY gorgeous gameplay, that’s when you can say “Wow, a lot of love went into making this game.” And, yes, a lot of love went into making this game.

    Finally, unique story and subplots. It kind of reminds me of Clock Tower. Lots of little stories involving several different people. Little scary stories. Think of it like this: if those newspaper clippings from all the other Silent Hill games could TALK and actually tell you their stories… what would it sound like, what would it be like? There is also the one big main story, which is great too, but I liked the smaller stories because they were a whole lot creepier.

    Buy. This. Game. Period.

    ***UPDATE*** December 26, 2009

    Those bad reviewers that I spoke of are now starting to rate the helpfulness of the good reviews, in an attempt to bring down the helpfulness ratings. Don’t be fooled — Silent Hill: Shattered Memories, for the Wii at least, is survival horror bliss.

    As a person who has played most of the popular survival horror games over the last 10 or so years, (Resident Evil, Silent Hill, Penumbra, Fatal Frame) I can say without a doubt that this game is exactly what I’ve been looking for in a survival horror game. The atmosphere of Silent Hill is creepy, and the Nightmare parts are heart-poundingly scary, mainly because you have to run from the monsters, you cannot fight or kill them.

    This game, as with Silent Hill 2 back in the day, is about putting you in the shoes of a realistic person, because really, if you were being chased by horrific (and surprisingly fast and smart) monsters, are you really going to stand your ground and fight them? And who’s going to have a suitcase full of guns that they can magically find ammo for whenever they are low? (Keeping in mind that Harry, the main character is caught unaware about the monsters, I think with enough time to prepare, I’d make sure that I had a suitcase full of guns myself if I knew I was going to be in Silent Hill, haha.)

    As for the game-play, I am very impressed by the Wii exclusive controls, such as the phone sounds coming out of the speaker in the wii-mote, and the ease of using the Wii-mote for the flashlight.

    The graphics are what to be expected from a Wii game, they wouldn’t be turning heads on the XBox 360 or the PS3, but it looks very good for a Wii game, one of the best so far in my opinion.

    So essentially if you have been disapointed with the new horror games’ style of run and gun action, and you have longed for the day you can play a game in the dark at night, and have trouble sleeping when your’re done, pick up Silent Hill: Shattered Memories, you’ll be glad you did.

    Given this is Silent Hill and that I’m a pansy when it comes to anything in the horror genre I was expecting to be playing this from perching over the back of the couch, ready to grab one of my fluffy dogs and duck down at the first sign of eldritch abominations and hallways made of meat.

    Turns out I didn’t have to do that, and, really, this game may be better off for it.

    Honestly, I’m not sure this game was meant to be frightening at all. I found the chases to be very tense, though that was mostly because of that lovely Wiimote totally spinning you around when you’re shoving those meatbags off you. “ALL RIGHT, SHOOK IT OFF!! …okay, what direction was I facing again? Oh bugger.” Tense, very annoying when it caused you to be subject to the meatbags’ erm… disquieting way of finishing you off. But definitely not scary.

    My personal opinion is that the game was meant to be unsettling. The messages you receive? Unsettling. The static ghosts? Unsettling. That little nagging thought in your head that… no… no the game can’t be about THAT. Definitely unsettling. And the big reveal at the end? OH GOD YES that was UNSETTLING.

    As a horror game I have to admit that Shattered Memories fails. As a game that explores the psyche in ways that make you uncomfy I believe it succeeds admirably. In that way it truly is a Silent Hill game, because that knot in the pit of your stomach? It ain’t from fear. It’s from being mercilessly shoved outside of your comfort zone. And that is FANTASTIC and what I believe Silent Hill has always been best at.

    Don’t buy this game for shock terrors and cheap thrills. Buy it for that whisper in the back of your head that as you’re playing tells you that something isn’t quite right here…

    I can’t wait to start a new game.

    This review is from: Silent Killer (Mass Market Paperback)

    Eighteen months ago, something terrible happened in the town of Dunmore. Catherine Cantrell and her pastor husband Mark were relaxing at home, when the doorbell rings. Mark heads to the door to answer it. Suddenly Cathy hears Mark screaming bloody murder. When Cathy arrives at the door, she finds Mark in the front yard engulfed in flames from head to toe.

    Cathy has returned to Dunmore. she wants to put the past behind her and get on with her life with her son, Sean. There are two reasons why Cathy shouldn’t have returned…one is named Jackson Perdue and the other is that there is a serial killer on the loose.

    Jackson has also returned home to Dunmore. He has been offered a job working for the police department. His first case is stopping a serial killer. One that newspaper reporters have dubbed “Fire and Brimstone Killer”, because the killer has taken it upon themselves to dish out God’s punishment on clergymen who are anything but innocent.

    It has been a little while since I have read a Beverly Barton novel. After reading her latest release Silent Killer, I am a 100% convinced that Mrs. Barton can not write a bad book. What I liked about this book is that even though there was clues given bit by bit of the identity of the killer, I still was comeplety surprised when the killer’s identity was finally revealed. I love when this happens. This is hard to do as I am a big thriller fan.

    There were some loose ends that involved some of the characters in the story. Luckily Mrs. Barton explained that this is because she has already been working on a new novel that will tie up all these loose ends. I can’t wait. The killer may be silent but you don’t have to by picking up a copy of this book to read for yourself.

    This review is from: Silent Killer (Mass Market Paperback)

    I love the Powell Agency series and specifically the relationship between Griffin Powell and Nicole Baxter in the The Murder Game! The two have a few scenes in Silent Killer, but the book itself was a bit of a disappointment.

    The story revolves around a mystery that has someone killing ministers by setting them afire. Cathy Cantrell is the wife of one of the first victims. After her husband Mark dies, Cathy ends up in a mental institution and her fifteen year old son goes to live with her in-laws. Now out and much stronger than she was before, Cathy comes home to claim her life and to get her son back from her husband’s parents. Jackson Perdue is now a deputy sheriff is assigned the cold cases and together Cathy and Jack are thrown into a religious maelstrom of vengeance and religious fervor to find Mark’s killer.

    This book was too religious for me. Barton generally delivers a good mystery and this one fell flat. I guess the killer almost immediately and then had to endure the religious dogma to get to the end. There were a few loose ends also. For instance Cathy’s husband Mark was killed because the killer saw him with another woman. Another minister is murdered because the killer believes he is a pedophile. Yet it is unclear whether either of these “reasons” were true.

    This is definitely not one of Barton’s best!

    exciting action packed romantic suspense, September 6, 2009

    This review is from: Silent Killer (Mass Market Paperback)

    Eighteen months ago, Catherine Cantrell observed in horror her well respected spouse Mark die in an inferno on their front porch. Horrified by the arson that killed her spouse, Cathy fled to Birmingham leaving their teenage son Seth with in-laws. Now with the help of her BFF Lorie Hammonds, she returns to her hometown of Dunmore, Alabama to raise Seth; though she knows she will never forget what she saw or heard. The case remains unsolved.

    However, more clergy are murdered in Dunmore that local police detective Jackson Perdue assumes is tied somehow to Cathy. As his former lover back in high school and knowing he still loves her, he rejects the circumstantial evidence that Catherine is the avenging serial killer as the Cantrell family implies.

    This is an exciting action packed romantic suspense that is at its best when Catherine and Jackson share the stage with no one except a corpse even though the underlying premise focuses on the families of religious leaders who try to keep secrets from being revealed. The subplot of Jack and Cathy rekindling their love is done well as he struggles with his heart saying she is innocent, but his upper head and the townsfolk think otherwise. SILENT KILLER is a strong tale that contains too many subplots and townsfolk detracting from the super main theme of an enjoyable regional police procedural romance.
