Summary: This is my first Silent Hill game and I found it rather difficult game. The fact is that you cannot save anywhere making it difficult for casual gamer like me. One single mistake will send you all the way back to the last checkpoint.
Summary: As an average gamer I don't think this game is all that great, I played it for about an hour and then got bored. Haven't touched it since. It's one of those games where you should really know what it's gonna be like instead of just hearing all the reviews about it, because, it's actually just kind...
Summary: I was warned before buying this game that is not a good place for a new player to get into Silent Hill and that the game itself wasn't great. Even for the price, I was disappointed. The world is bland and the gameplay disjointed. Look elsewhere if you are interested in the series.
From a Silent Hill fanatic: The only game I've ever quit due to boredom

Summary: I was a big fan of the series, but there has been a sharp decline in story and game quality since the third installment. This was the worst by far, and it pains me to say that since I enjoy the survival horror genre.
Worst Silent Hill to date. Don't know why the other reviews are so positive.

Summary: The Good: Otherworld areas are fun, fun end boss, free roaming area is a good idea The Bad: Broken frustrating combat, side quests are nigh impossible to solve, everything is too cryptic, dated horrid graphics, glitches and framerate isues abound, nonsense endings, disappointing story Silent Hill...
Summary: I found this game so dull that I stopped playing (something I rarely do). the graphics seem dated. the storyline is interesting but you have to get through the godawful gameplay which isn't worth it. The monsters aren't scary ... just annoying.
Excerpt: This has promise and starts well and i forgave the constant frame rate issues and pushed on. I could not forgive how poor the combat is and given the game is heavly combat oriantated it was a deal breaker. A case of so near yet so far.
Summary: This game is awful, I have enjoyed every other silent hill to date (even you know what) but this game is just terrible. The contols are clunky, the enemies are boring and not in the slightest bit scary, the sidequests are pointless and time consuming and the ending is the most stupid nonsensical...
