Silent Hill: Book of Memories does Diablo and Gaunlet?

Really not sure about this now, the latest batch of screens I've seen show off a game that barely resembles the Silent Hill world, and is increasingly looking like a Diablo or Gauntlet-inspired derivative. I'm not saying that it won't be a bad game, but selling it with the Silent Hill brand is going to cause confusion, hurt and upset among the tender sensibilities of game players. Why not go the whole hog and do Silent Hill All-Stars?<

With multiplayer, some nasty looking demons, and dipping in and out of Silent Hill's body (and bodies) of characters, there is lots of customisation for both characters and their skill sets. Again, it could be a lot of fun, but Konami needs to tread very lightly with how it handles the grey world between genres and gaming history.
