  • Excerpt: Like the other Silent Hill game, this one too revolves around a religious cult. Henry Townshend is a normal man in South Ashfield, but for some reason, his apartment has been locked and he can\'t open his windows. He\'s stuck in this room... when suddenly a huge hole appears in his bathroom...

Silent Hill 4: The Room PS2 Review

Console Obsession
31 May 2010
  • Excerpt: The Silent Hill series has always been one of the best for provoking terror and the shocking images that the games depict so well just keep on becoming more disturbing. The fourth game in the series is a slight departure to what we are normally used to, without some of the mainstays that made the series famous; Silent Hill 4 showcases some brand new and rather neat ideas. Always an asset of Silent Hill is the mind-bending plot and four is no exception.

  • Excerpt: When it comes to creepiness and a firm grasp of the macabre few games have been able to pull it off better than Konami’s Silent Hill series. Always eager to incorporate all manner of disturbing, gory images while constantly tugging at gamers’ fight-or-flight instincts, the series has deservedly earned itself the high regard it often receives…even if the praise comes from whimpering, drawn, and haggard gamers who will be sleeping with the lights on, teddy bear close at...

  • Excerpt: While watching horror films are fun ways to spend an evening, it has been many years since one of them has given me any kind of fright. Then around Halloween time the local rednecks get all decked out and overtake some abandoned factory and turn into a haunted house of some kind. Sure, its fun taking a big group of people who get scared easily through, but youre usually left feeling disappointed.

Silent Hill 4: The Room

Playstation Illustrated

  • Excerpt: Well, what can I say? Once again, we are thrust back into the sleepy, creepy world of Silent Hill. Or are we? Actually, this time, it takes place in a town near Silent Hill called Ashfield, but trust me, it's still the same type thing you know and love. If you haven't played any of the previous Silent Hill games, don't worry. It isn't necessary, but if you have, you'll recognize certain areas such as Lake Toluca and names such as Alessa.

  • Excerpt: The Silent Hill series’ literary take on survival horror divides opinions greatly. A small, cult-like following promotes the virtues of its subtle art-house styling, but most gamers are left cold by the cumbersome gameplay rather than the chills on offer. This instalment attempts to address these criticisms with overhauled game mechanics, whilst fresh locations and a more visceral direction will have even hardened fans jumping behind the sofa.

Silent Hill 4: The Room

Thunderbolt Games
28 October 2004
  • Excerpt: The saddest thing in video games occurs when a game seems to set out to interest only a small, specific niche of gamers–and then proceeds to fail even those people. Silent Hill 4: The Room is that game, and I am one of those people. Indeed, I considered myself a devout SH follower, hoping against all hope that the brilliance found in the first game (the only one to be released on the now outdated PSX) would return full force to manifest in this newest incarnation.
