  • 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 !

  • 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

19 June 2003
  • 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
  • Cons: I can't sleep mommy

  • Excerpt: "I must say after Resident Evil, I thought no game would capture my imagination. From the start this game did prove to me it was worth the effort. You really do have to find the clues, not to mention the secret pickups. When you first start the game you do not have many items but do not worry you soon will find lots. It is important to collect all the health and bullets you can find. Believe me you will need them This game has a great story and ...

  • Excerpt: "Yet another game in the Resident Evil genre, and a very good one at that. Basically the plot is simple. A guy drives along a dark country road and crashes his car. When he awakes he finds his daugher is no longer in the back seat. He leaves the vehicle in search of his daughter in a very scary haunted town. No-one is around, nothing can be heard apart from eerie moans and screams eminating from the distance. You must explore the town fighting ...
  • Pros: Very Scary, Excellent puzzles

  • Excerpt: "SIlent Hill. Nice title, isn't it? Not too blunt like Resident Evil, not too obtuse like Koudelka. It's just right, sort of an understated kind of title. However understated isn't the kind of adjective you can apply to any other part of the game as this is scary stuff. You start off with an FMV which pretty much brings you to speed with the games plot. You are Harry Mason, a widower, and you're taking your little daughter, Cheryl, on holiday to ...
  • Pros: Scary, good graphics, nice plot, good FMV

  • Excerpt: "...into the sleepy town of Silent Hill with his seven year old daughter Cheryl. Speeding into the town he swerves to avoid a girl in the middle of the road, rolls the car down a hill and passes out. Once he awakes his daughter is gone. Now the fun begins. The game lands you in the town with absolutely no idea of what to do next and really makes you feel as though you are the character himself. A little thought and the game will however guide you through ...
  • Pros: Very scary, excellent sound and compelling plot .
  • Cons: Camera angles take some getting used to
