Not as bad as I thought...

WickedDemoness, Amazon

  • Summary: This game wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, but it wasn't nearly as good as the first three. There were a few things about this game that were horrifically terrible, including corny and dumb sound effects. Overall it was still fun and still had some things that were dark and creepy.

All downhill from here

  • Summary: Ah, Silent Hill 4. You aren't bad but you're proof that the series has gone stale and should be put out of its misery. I found the game to have an incredible storyline but the gameplay elements mistepped so hard, their femurs burst out and rocketed sky high.

Stuck in the middle(or in this case the Room)

Adrian "Tempus Fugent", Amazon

  • Summary: After a few playthroughs I'm still not sure if I like The Room or not. The gameplay is comparitively good for a horror game unless you count the camera hiccups, but what survival horror game doesn't have those? What really annoyed me are the monsters called Victim ghosts.

  • Summary: Again the graphics improved and the controls improved but it didn't top its predecessors. I didn't like how there was no town to run around in and how some of the ghosts couldn't be killed( only held down by a knife). But its still a good story, with good puzzle and creatures.

The weakest Silent Hill game

Sylph StarWind, Amazon

  • Summary: This game is somewhat different from it's predecessors. The combat is more smooth, but not by much. You can use a first-person mode in the room, which is somewhat interesting, but I don't think it's any better than third-person view.

Good, but less so

Egoman, Amazon

  • Summary: "Silent Hill 4: The Room" is a good game. The voice-acting is largely improved from previous installments, and the style of gameplay takes some exciting new turns. The omission of the radio was an interesting twist, as was the item management system.

These are Opinions, not fact!......with a little conspiracy!

  • Summary: Well, another latest installment in the Silent Hill Series and this is a pretty different version than the rest. If you like the game flow of the first three silent hill's, then be somewhat prepared to experience something different in this one.

  • Summary: Here is a game that falls under the dubious distinction of "Not a Bad Game, Just a Disappointing One." Silent Hill 4: The Room is decent. But with the previous two titles being as great as they were, more was expected from the fourth installment. Silent Hill builds the series around Storyline.

Not Quite Silent Hill

Chris "Sprout", Amazon
13 September 2004
  • Summary: At the beginning of the game, Henry Townshend has been trapped in his South Ashfield apartment for three days when, suddenly, a hole appears in his bathroom that takes him to strange worlds. My problem with Silent Hill 4 is that Henry really isn't the focus of the game.

Will you ever leave the room?

  • Excerpt: Originally appearing on the Playstation, the 'Silent Hill' series is a successful series of horror games, probably most comparable to the 'Resident Evil' games in some ways, however Silent Hill has a tendency to be much more twisted and freakish than the gory and action packed nature of most...
  • Pros: Immersive plotline, an imaginitive paradoxical world of fear and confusion
  • Cons: A little dated and slow at times
