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.
Summary: The first thing that any one should know about this game is that it wasn't supposed to be a Silent Hill game. Originally, the game was supposed to be called "Room 304" but Konami hijacked it in the way of Square Enix at the last second in order to make some more money using the franchise's name. Don't worry though, the game is mostly Silent Hill, with powerful, dark storytelling and Akira Yamaoka's amazing compositions.
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. In their quest to create inovative gameplay involving a room, the game designers seemed to have reached their limit. And they disbanded now. It's fun but it really is the end of the series.
Summary: First of all SH4 has nothing to do with silent hill. And it doesn't even take place in the town of Silent Hill. I didn't like it that much just because I thought it was stupid that all of a sudden a hole just come out of no where in your bathroom and you have to go in the hole in order to go anywhere. And further in the game the hole gets bigger WOW!!!.
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. It's still a member of the silent hill family.
Summary: Silent Hill 4 isn't as good as some of the other games in the "Silent Hill" series. But if you're a fan of the series, you'll enjoy it. SH4 has some new elements, such as both first and third person perspectives and a greater emphasis on combat. There are also "ghosts," which harass you throughout the game, are impossible to kill and very difficult to even incapacitate.
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. There are a few things to do in your home, like peek in on your neighbor or look out into the hall. But it all gets pretty repetitive.
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. In this latest installment, the first thing i've noticed was that you are limited to what you can take and yes, that's the puzzle of the game.
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. A twisted story with baddies so twisted even Stephen King himself would refer somebody to a shrink.
