Decent game, but kind of a letdown

Heather Evans, Amazon
19 January 2009
  • 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.

Playable, but not its best

C. O. Ayala "Weaver of tales", Amazon

  • 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.

Been there, done it!!!

  • 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.

A bit drab...

Sam (Leeds, England), amazon.co.uk
7 January 2007
  • 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.

Not a bad edition to the series

Mike Jonze, amazon.co.uk
18 October 2006
  • 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...

Excellent Graphics, But Just Not Scary Enough

Karma "karmapolice_2", amazon.co.uk
22 October 2004
  • 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.

"Happy Birthday to Thee"

Jessie, Mighty Ape
14 January 2004
  • 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.

Silent but Violent

"sir_funpants", amazon.co.uk

  • 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.

Silent Hill 3

D. Wood "dazza193", amazon.co.uk
27 July 2003
  • Summary: This is a fantastic game - scary, suspenseful, and difficult. The effects are good, the graphics are alright, and the characters are well throught-through. That said, I was lucky I only rented the damn thing. It took me two hours to complete. That was including distractions like food. The ending is pretty pathetic, too, and it has depth, but not enough. And once you've played it, you probably will not want to re-play it; ooh, you get a new outfit?!

Good but not much new

"okimdead", amazon.co.uk
14 July 2003
  • Summary: Was it my imagination or did this game seem shorter than SH1 and SH2? Of course coming from this stable it is a good game and if it were my first SH game I would probably give it 4 stars. But in comparison there was not a lot new about this other than improved graphics and excellent sound. SH officianados should certainly buy it as it has all the qualities that make the series so good, I just felt Konami were a bit lazy with this one.
