In the final issue of Nintendo Power magazine, Silent Hill Shattered Memories was counted among the top 5 best video game endings in recent memory.
The list is as follows:
1.-Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D
2. Professor Layton and the Unwound Future
3. Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors
4. Silent Hill: Shattered Memories
Drastically different in style from its predecessor, Silent Hill Shattered Memories took the story of Harry Mason and twisted it into a more simple, yet emotionally engrossing tale of loss. For those who pick it up thinking they know what’s going to happen, the ending proves to be a real surprise.
This bittersweet news is a fond farewell to many; Nintendo Power, Team Silent and Akira Yamaoka who composed his last soundtrack for the series with Silent Hill Shattered Memories.
