Summary: Synopsis: Silent Hill 3 is a direct sequel to the original Silent Hill game. The main character is a teenage girl named Heather Mason, who wakes up from a nightmare in her local shopping mall. After calling her father to tell him she'll be home shortly, she meets a detective hired to bring her back to her hometown of Silent Hill on the grounds that she was kidnapped as an infant.
Summary: This game intrigued me because of its name. I had played the sequal first because I heard that if you play the first one it will ruin the second. The second game was by far the best. The story took this series into a phsycological aspect rarely done in video games. Of course, playing this one before the first, I may be a little bias. Then I played the first one and thought it was a great beginning to the series. Then I played the third installment.
Summary: I've only recently started playing Silent Hill 3 and I found it very frustrating and unenjoyable..... they're is limited weapons and ammo, too many similar rustic (boring) environments and some truly dreadful camera angles that did my head in, plus running up and down stairways is too awkward.
Summary: Plus points: +Great graphics +Good sound +Controls are fine Minus points: -So many locked doors straight away -Weak plot line -If I have a route out from a shopping mall with monsters in it blocked by a van or some boxes, I would climb over the van or rip up the boxes and run like mad. -The main character's traversing stairs motion is completely ridiculous, and in this day and age for such a big name title that's really bad.
Summary: This game is interesting as it's the start of the demise of the Silent Hill franchise. That doesn't mean that it's a bad game, because it's not - it just means that it is nowhere near the genius of Silent Hill 2. I enjoyed the game, but the tone was a little too dark - something the series got more and more into and it does add some new dimensions to the Silent Hill series, it just that by explaining more and more why the town is going to hell, it seems to be taking...
Summary: I bought Silent Hill 3 expecting to be scared out of my wits. I wasn't. The graphics are very good....but the monsters just aren't particularly scary and there is not a huge variety of them. Part of the lack of scariness is due, I think, to the 3rd person perspective. It is much harder to be scared when the perspective is that of a character on the screen being attacked rather than you personally as with a first person game.
Excerpt: "...was first introduced to the Silent Hill games I couldnt actually comprehend how a computer game could be scary and even laughed at the idea of it. How wrong could I have been. Writing the review for Silent Hill2 bought it all flooding back to me!!! Anyway, after waiting ages and ages for Silent Hill3 to come out I was ready for more thrills and excitement to come but have to be honest, I was a little disappointed. Ok, maybe Silent Hill2 had prepared ...
Stray from original formula but good enough to be called SH

Summary: First of all let me say that I am more than 21 years old, so I am not someone who shouldn't be writing this review in the first place. The term "Mature" doesn't just imply not being easily scared, but also being able to understand certain concepts. The world is sometimes difficult to understand even for adults, in case children ever wonder about that. The game is for adults, period. This game is better than Silent Hill 2, which seemed too short.
Summary: I got this game as a birthday present and did an LP (let's play) on YouTube
about it and everyone loved it, but not as much as me. This is defiantly a game
for playing in the dark, lights out, nice cold drink and surround sounds.
Although best played on home alone or someone might jump from behind the couch
at you. I defiantly recommend this game for people who 1 love gaming and
2 live horror. It's a great brain pulled and run around.
Summary: It irks me somewhat, that I cant start this review knowing I've given this third daytrip to Scaresville USA, aka Silent Hill, anything but 5 stars. That rating is variable, however. If, by some chance, you haven't run the gauntlet of a Silent Hill game before, hike that review score by two further stars.
