Summary: Overall Silent Hill as suspected every one including myself instantly compared it to Capcom's Resident Evil. But shockingly enough Silent Hill snuck some originality into the game. One being Harry can't shoot for crap, second the addition of detailed maps, radio and flashlight.
Excerpt: Silent Hill begins with a very average widower, Harry Manson, who is taking the trip in order to spend some quality father-daughter time with his child, seven year old Cheryl. The duo set out for Silent Hill on one dark night, full of excitement and ready for a chance to unwind.
Excerpt: Silent Hill is Konami's first attempt to bring out a Resident Evil style game, but were they successful at it? Well not really, you see Silent Hill has a lot of problems with it let's start out with the story. It's about a man named Harry and his daughter Cheryl.
Silent Hill brings horror gamers screaming for more
23 June 1999
Excerpt: Silent Hill reaches a whole new level of horror as Konami brings to us perhaps the most blood-chilling, psychotic thriller ever to reach the Sony platform. Resident Evil? Parasite Eve? No contest. Silent Hill grips the darkest part of the gamer's imagination in a way that no game has before.
Excerpt: Resident Evil, Capcom's action-adventure series, took the gaming world by storm, yet there have been few "me-too"'s since then. With Silent Hill for the Sony PlayStation, Konami is one of the first to produce such a clone.
Conclusion: Silent Hill é um dos melhores jogos já feitos para o Playstation. Tem elementos que certamente não irão agradar a todos, como a história aparentemente sem pé nem cabeça e a falta de grandes desafios. É para quem aprecia temas mórbidos, melancolia e história surreal.
Pros: Assustador!;, Gráficos soberbos;, Belas composições musicais, que variam de "trip-hop" ao tango (do mais melancólico)
Cons: Os inimigos mais comuns, como o cachorro-zumbi, são bem feios e mal animados;, Alguns "puzzles" são difíceis demais;, Canastrões.
