Silent Hill's Vita Debut is a Different Kind of Silent Hill

In a disorienting reveal, the Vita version of Silent Hill: Book of Memories is taking a different approach to the franchise.

Konami's subbing out the fixed perspectives and creepy-crawly pace of previous Silent Hills for some fast-paced, isometric action in the upcoming Book of Memories. A cooperative action game with puzzle elements, Memories will see you and your friends creating customized characters, solving puzzles in several eerie environments, and duking it out with familiar faces from the series' foggy, frightening universe.

We're anxious to give this new take on the spine-tingling series a shot once it hits Sony's new handheld, but we can't help but feel slightly skeptical about the sizable shift in tone -- heck, even Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City feels a bit more grounded in its respective series than this. What do you guys think: does Book of Memories look like an exciting side-story, or a wrong turn for Konami's franchise?
