So let’s get this well and truly understood. Resident Evil is now a Call of Duty-esque action shooter, and Silent Hill has become a hack-and-slash, cooperative RPG of sorts with Silent Hill: Book of Memories. Both seem to have eschewed survival/psychological horror for bad gameplay.
And if anything had you hoping that Book of Memories would be an exception, than look no further than the character customisations, isometric perspectives, loot collecting and hacking-and-slashing. Konami seems to be trying with Scare Rooms, but really, nothing reduces Prism Head’s scariness like the above trailer.
