  • Excerpt: "On the surface, Silent Hill looks like your standard Survival Horror. Spawning a whole host of sequels, one may wonder what is the point of returning to the game that started it all. But Silent Hill is packed with enough brilliance to stand up in the bland gaming climate at the moment, enough so, it'd be worth shelling out for if you haven't already experienced it. Silent Hill is frightening, lets start with that. Not mildly jumpy or Resident Evil ...
  • Pros: Scary gameplay, tense atmosphere built up throughout the adventure, fun to play
  • Cons: Dated graphics, too short, low longevity factor

  • Excerpt: "Like many other PSone games, I watched my brother playing this before I had a shot at it. When I watched him i was only 8 and I found it scary to watch, suprisingly when I played a few months ago for this first time, now at the age of 16, I was still scared. It is really freaky, but in a good way. My favourite thing about this game is it has lots of puzzles which you have to think through, making it really enjoyable(addictive) gameplay! Its not one ...
  • Pros: If you love puzzles and gore, this is the game for you !
  • Cons: It doesn't go on forever !

Silent hill revisited

3 July 2006
  • Excerpt: "...some horror games. I went through silent hill 2-4, all the resident evil games, and lots of other horror games. I went to see the silent hill film & it made me long for a new horror game- so I tracked down (on a popular auction site) silent hill - the first one. Obviously the graphics are not great, now we're used to much more advanced ones. Having said that- it is very good for its time, and the cut scenes are of high standard. Having ...
  • Pros: classic horror
  • Cons: control of charactor, hard to find .

  • Excerpt: "...someone talking about how cool Silent Hill was. Finding a brand new copy for about a fiver, I decided to try my luck. I got home, put my cheats in straight away, remembering that demo... and found I'd put a cheat on that made the guy literally skate where he went. I quickly rebooted, and took that cheat off. And from the moment I hit to start the game, I was hooked. The first thing that got me was the introduction. The movie that played... it was ...
  • Pros: Scary, entertaining, awesome graphics, different endings, wonderful story .  .  .
  • Cons: Very scary, not for young people, or those who scary easy

Silent Hill

  • Excerpt: "...of 1999, Metal Gear Solid, Silent Hill got plenty of hype in the months approaching its release. But unlike the stealth classic, views on Silent Hill have always been split. It seems that anyone who has really got into the game has found it an incredibly unnerving, psychologically challenging horror marathon that really livens the players desperate instinct to survive. A few claim the game isn't scary at all - perhaps not allowing themselves to ...
  • Pros: Great graphics, scary and absorbing action, five endings
  • Cons: Some slight control issues, some don't find it scary .  .  .

  • Excerpt: "...daughter in the nearby town Silent Hill. The only similarity Silent Hill shares with Resident Evil is the third person perspective style of play and the need to do a few puzzles to break the game up a little bit. From there all similarities end and the game begins to set itself apart by manipulating the player's imagination, feeding off his or her paranoia. For Most of the game you will be stumbling and fumbling around in the dark with only a pocket ...
  • Pros: Oh My Gawd, what a game

The opening titles set the scene: Harry and his young daughter Cheryl are on their way to the remote town of Silent Hill for a late vacation. Suddenly a mysterious figure steps out in front of their car causing it to spin off the road. When Harry regains consciousness there's no sign of Cheryl and ...
