Excerpt: Scares have always been in plentiful supply in the gaming realm. Every few months there's a new title released in order to satisfy the blood lusts of gamers who just love to stain a new pair of pants. But after you've played through all the Resident Evil and Silent Hill games, what's left to scare you into next week? Perhaps looking through the eyes of the undead will float your boat. I had a lot of time for the original Forbidden Siren.
Conclusion: In 2005, Hollywood bought the rights to make a movie out of the game Siren. As the production is yet to appear, good news are coming from Sony because we'll see a Forbidden Siren, part 3 on Playstation 3. Overall, the game is better than its predecessor but still, it doesn't match the rivals of the same genre, like Resident Evil 4. However, completing it is not a walk in the park, as it can take days, if not weeks to end this nightmarish adventure.
Summary: Before the incredible Resident Evil 4 redefined survival horror, Silent Hill producer Keiichiro Toyama tried to take the hackneyed genre in a new direction with Forbidden Siren, using an episodic structure and stealth-based challenges that felt more sophisticated than the hamfisted action of most gore games.
