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.
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.
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...
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.
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.
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.
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.
