Summary: The ports pretty good. It allows higher resolutions and higher texture quality than the console version right off the bat. Besides the inferior fog, the clunky controls, the response time of said controls, and the framerate issue- it play much like its console counterpart. "Framerate issue?" You may ask. Game can't decide if it wants to play at 30 or 60 frames per second. Constantly jumps between the two no matter how beastly you computer is.
Summary: I never cam across a Silent Hill that i didnt like. Hope til this day, 2013 in november, that silent hill series keeps going and wont stop. I play this game mostly to reminisce to, i use to play it 10 years ago when i was only 8 or 9. I will always have this game on my shelf, same version for pc and ps2 sitting right next to number 4 until i die.
One of The Scariest Survival Horror Games Ever Made!

Summary: Silent Hill 3 is probably one of the scariest survival horror video games ever made! Much more scary then any Resident Evil game or any other. You play as Heather Mason (yes, daughter of none other then Harry Mason from Silent Hill 1) SH3 seems inspired not only by the movie Jacob's Ladder but also by Hellraiser and even Resident Evil to a certain extent as well as almost any David Lynch film (think Eraserhead, for example.
Summary: I love the Silent Hill franchise, more than almost anything! but sadly my copy of SH3 broke and wouldn't play after the hospital area so I went out of my way to buy this near brand new copy of it for only $17. Came with the case, manual, and disc. It looked (and smelled) brand new! Game plays great. Loads quickly, and no skipping/freezing or any of the sort. Great game, great condition, and great price!
Summary: A great addition to the Silent Hill series. Graphics are lovely, sound is amazing, story is intriguing, and gameplay has been improved. Has many thrilling moments. The game has great replay value (alternate costumes, weapons, endings, and difficulties) that will keep you coming back for more. However, the game is much tougher than Silent Hill 1 or 2, but not too hard. Overall, a great game. Must-buy in my opinion.
Summary: This is my favorite Silent Hill title by far. The storyline- which is connected to the first game- is compelling and the actual gameplay isn't half bad either. When played on normal setting SH3 is not a particularly challenging game. Like other SH games, bosses are kind of a joke. If this bothers you, crank up the difficulty and play it through. It's worth replaying at least once for the silly extras. The graphics are impressive for a PS2 game at the time of its release.
Summary: I believe that reviews should complete the task they were created for, reviewing something. All games should be reviewed, not compared across a blurry line of how it matches up to a game completely different than it. Silent Hill, unlike alot of games, gives purpose to everything that takes place in its games. Such as its monsters, ever since the first game every monster has had a hidden, underlying message to each of them.
Summary: If you get to know that this game released the same year that Max Payne 2 came out, the control and camera might feel pretty frustrating to you as a PC game. But the thing is, it was originally designed for PS2, and another thing is, that if the camera were free to move, it wouldn't have been so scary. You know everytime you turn around a corner, the atmosphere reaches its highest tide.
