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.
A total classic! Not a knock-off of Resident Evil.

Summary: This is a spectacular game. It is horrific, but it's not so much "OH, my god! Im gonna die!" scary, it's more like, "If that was me, I dont know what I'd do!" scary. It kinda gives you that chills. Resident Evil was slightly more "BOOM!" scary. It scared you right then and there with no expectations. But Silent Hill, the story unwravels. It's more like a mystery, which makes it so scary.
Summary: The previous installments, like the latest one, have their own sub-genre. The first and second ones were kind of murder mysteries, the third one was a religious horror, and Silent Hill 4:The Room, is a serial killer type. Henry, your average joe, starts experiencing these nightmarish dreams. As these dreams continue, his appartment starts to change. One day, he wakes up, and there is a massive hole in his bathroom wall.
Summary: wOO! when i first got an x box, i bought two games... this and 'the sims urbz',and being a hater of action games, i thought that this game will remain lying on my shelf for the rest of eternity, but i was wrong. once i started this game, i kept playing it, with brief breaks for eating, sleeping, and going to school. love it.
Summary: Now I got this game yesturday so I'm not very far yet but from what I have played this game kicks @$$. Right at the beginning it is kinda slow , you don't do alot but within a couple of minutes you should be fighting a bunch zombies/monsters and "dogs". Bad things about this game - the camera angle is sometimes a pain, it makes it hard to see emenies , and some might consider this a good thing some a bad thing ,but there is no auto aim when you are fighting, it actually...
Summary: i like this game like all the previous ones i've played .. i thought i was gonna visit Silent hill again in this game.. i was wrong. I guess they're trying to come up with new stories for players to live..it's all good, i like all the Silent hill series they come up with.. but i gotta say ,that Silent hill 1 was the one game that made me feel real horror, cause it was my first silent hill experience I could ever live, and it made me voracious for more silent hill series.
Summary: After finally figuring out the problem I was having with the game and being able to FINALLY play it I have to say I like it. I been with Silent Hill since the beginning on the Playstatin and it's just what I would expect. The first person is only while in your room so it's okay. I'm not a fan of first person but this doesn't bother me. What sucks though is that I read in an interview that the new SH's may be strickly first person...
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.
