Conclusion: If you like horror/survival games, this is defenately something for you. I am a fan myself and absolutely loved the game. The story is very intriging and makes you wanna keep on playing. There are some riddles/puzzles in the game but none are to hard to solve, so even if you don't like that kind of stuff, you'll still like the game. You will be visiting some very different worlds with each their own trademarks.
Conclusion: I'll be blunt. If you like survival/horror games, that you will enjoy this. If you don't than don't bother. You also need to be literate. That means there are parts in the game, most of it, that involves a strong understanding of words and their meaning. Definitely not for idiots, or people whom have trouble solving word problems. The story is as expected from a Silent Hill game. A very in depth, horrifying, plot and sub-plot.
Excerpt: "Silent Hill 4, was, and still is my favourite video game to date. It reminded me so much of those Japanese games where you had to escape from a room by moving things and using your initiative. '''Story (No Spoilers)''' The story starts off simple enough, you play as Henry Townsend who recently suffers from severe headaches and intense nightmares. His phone is cut, neighbours can’t hear his cries for help, and the windows and doors are sealed shut. ...
Summary: Silent Hill has always been a cult faveorite in pretty much every gamers mind, in some way its always been pinned lovingly on a gamers thumb. But the fourth game in the series is quite a diffrent fare. The gameplay is superb for a SH game, with gritty, scary graphics, great controls and ugly flesh monsters all knocking the atmosphere up to 11, its scary, violent, and strangly sexy in places.
