Summary: Silent hill 4 the room was an enjoyable experience for the most part the atmosphere tension and horror aspect are there but in small doses the ghost enemy is not scary but just irritating. Having to keep going back to the apartment every time to save and put items in the chest is very irritating but despite all this I would still recommend this game for the very good story line

Pros: Scary, fun to play . . .
Cons: . . right up until the halfway mark when it goes right downhill .
Excerpt: "...unlike previous games. graphics...the graphics in silent hill have always been good and this one is no different its just a shame theres not much difference later in the game. sound...a major good point,very atmospheric,very silent hill.. conclusion...a good game in its own right,with challenging puzzles,and plot..but for a series thats there with resident evil its lost that sense of involvement in it..which is a shame because it starts ...
Pros: very atmospheric,great graphics and terrific audio .
