The PlayStation Vita still hasn't had a real system-seller for me (I'm also kind of hoping for a price drop before this holiday season...), but when games were being announced before the portable's release, I definitely perked up when I saw that Silent Hill: Book of Memories was on the list. The title's similarity to the last good Silent Hill game I've played, Shattered Memories, immediately had me hoping for the best.
So imagine my disappointment to learn that it's actually a co-op multiplayer game instead of the usual survival horror. As time went on, I still sort of thought that maybe it might end up being okay, but every time I see screenshots of it, that feeling fades further and further away. I mean, it just looks like Silent Hill: Diablo to me. I mean, that's clearly what they're going for, but when I play a Silent Hill game, I want creepy survival horror that gets under my skin and freaks me out. If I wanted to play Diablo, I'd play Diablo.
Also, the quality of these graphics are kind of disappointing. Is it me, or do these look like PSP-quality? I know the Vita is capable of more. I've seen it. Just not here.
