Summary: I knew this wasn't a game before I purchased it. As a huge fan of the Silent Hill Franchise I needed this piece in my collection. It such a great product, it has mini comics to other tidbits that the franchise offers. Not only that but the music by Akira Yamaoka is in this title. This is definitely a product that will be rare to find once its no longer available to purchase. So if you haven't already, do yourself a favor and pick this up!!!
Summary: It's not a game it's a dvd for the psp (aka umd). Basically it's a collection of all the promotional stuff you can find online plus some interviews. Not really worth buying unless your a SH collector like I am. I do LOOOOOVEEEE the animations on the menus though they are so AWESOME!
Summary: Comics are ok but the narration passes by too quickly. The rest is blah. I was under the impression that this would show the origin of pyramid head and more of how Silent Hill became what it is.

Summary: This is NOT a game. It's a collection of media relating to the world of Silent Hill. This includes a comic book, pictures from the games, some art, interviews with some of the game's makers (including musical genius Akira Yamaoka), and a selection of music from games 1-4. If you're crazy in love with Silent Hill, and you have a PSP, then this one's a no-brainer. Buy it and love it, or Pyramid Head will drag you away.
Summary: The Good: Good quality comics, great for promoting the series The Bad: Comics have messy art, no voice acting, not "interactive" at all I was surprised how little there was in SHE. While the game is hardly interactive (just "interactive" menus) the game does sport some good media to keep you busy for a few hours. While the "game" only has two full length comics (and they're damn good) the art is really messy and there is no voice acting.
Summary: This is on of the best umds i ever bought! and even though it didn't have as much stuff as i thought it did, it still wowed me! here are the pros and cons, pros: -amazing presentation of comics with music -20 tracks of what i thought was the best music of the series -cool hidden features like the fukuro video -intros of all 4 games and movie trailer -interviews with movie director and game creator along with music composer -Its on your PSP!
Summary: I adore Silent Hill and while I tried to not have any expectations, I felt slightly cheated. I do recommend this in that I did like the interface (as unwieldy as the game). I love the intro screen and was vaguely annoyed it was tough to get it back, even after removing & replacing the UMD. I was disappointed the most at the lack of substance.
