  • 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

Silent hill revisited

  • 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 ...

  • Excerpt: "Silent Hill is one of those rare things: a game that grips your imagination by the throat and pulls you headlong into it's chilling and gruesome world. 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 ...

He tells her that he has to find his little daughter (he's a male widow ;-) and she gives him a gun. This ist when your play starts.

The orchestra plays sad music, hard and low gothic sound, but the ...

  • Excerpt: "In answer to the title of this opinion, yes very scared. I'd never have thought a console game could make me jump out of my skin and be afraid to turn the lights out. Taking the idea of the 'Resident Evil' games, this has some of the same elements yet it's far more effective in the spooky department. To set the scene, a father and daughter are driving on their way to visit a small town. A motorcyclist passes the car and disappears, only to be seen ...
  • Pros: Scary game that keeps you on edge

A Great game, But There Are Better.

  • Excerpt: "Silent Hill is a stunning and scary game from Konami. It is more frightening than Resident Evil 3 and more evocative than Tomb Raider 3. It is a landmark game. Its graphics are fantastic, with lots of variety and loads of neat touches. It has quite a short life span, as it is not too hard to finish, but there are five endings to see. If I were given some money to go out and buy a game like Silent Hill, I would not buy Silent Hill. Instead I would ...
