Silent Hill: Shattered Memories Nets a Best Audio Award

Beats some stiff competition too
Silent Hill: Shattered Memories was a brave and very successful attempt to produce a psychological horror game that used the Wii's unique capabilities, grabbing some excellent review scores if not the sales it deserved. The game's audio design has received a deserved nod in the form of a Best Audio Design award at the fifth Milthon Awards.
A jury of eight, presided over by Martyn Brown of Team 17, decided on the awards, handed out the awards in conjunction with the French Minister of Culture and Communication. Silent Hill was the only game on a Nintendo format to receive an award, beating a stiff multi-format competition including heavyweight emotional drama Heavy Rain.
