In The Modern World Of Hd, Xbox 360, Playstation 3. This Game Is Still Scary.
A downright creepy survival horror title, Silent Hill succeeds where most
Resident Evil-inspired titles suck: keeping you hooked and instilling you
with fear throughout the game. Players are cast as Harry Mason in his
desperate search for his daughter, who mysteriously disappeared after
their car crashed into a gully outside of a desolate resort town. The 3-D
environments in Silent Hill are bathed in fog or darkness, making its
dismal setting all the more eerie; this also allows for some spectacular
lighting effects when using a flashlight in the dark. Granted, there are
some pretty coarse graphics being obscured here, but its a fair trade-off,
considering the games short load times. Silent Hill is played from a third-
person perspective, viewed from both fixed and moving camera angles.
As with similar games, the viewpoint can be awkward at times, especially
during combat, which here is so clunky that you should try to avoid it
whenever possible--something you should do anyway, as this isnt Tomb
Raider. Rather than resort to cheap scare tactics, Silent Hill features a
gameplay twist that works very well with its limited visibility environments.
Harry carries a radio with him that crackles wi th static whenever the
games nasties are near, and continues until theyre no longer in the vicinity
or have been killed off. (Enemies may require further whacking when
theyre down, as they like to play dead.) Additionally, the supported Dual-
Shock controller pulsates in a heartbeatlike fashion whenever youre
moderately or seriously injured. --Joe Hon Pros: Suspenseful story with
bone-chilling gameplay Short load times Excellent lighting and fog effects
Five possible endings add replay value Cons: Coarse graphics Clunky
Personal Review: Silent Hill
Ahhh, my favorite game ever.
Dont miss out on this lovely gem.
Expensive, but worth it!
Youll love this game. A cult classic, to be sure...soon enough, you too will
have a new fondness for radios, flashlights, steel pipes and sirens.
It has a surprisingly large environment given that its such an old game.
Lots of levels, lots of detail, lots of story, lots of monster, lots o stuff, thats
for sure. Its a bit of a pain to get used to moving around, but youll get used
to it. Were just so spoiled by this intuitive new-gen games. ;)
I inherited my original copy from a neighbor, and I was lucky enough to
stumble across a brand new copy in a used records, dvd and game store
to replace my horribly scratched one for only 20 bucks.
Having said that, I would definitely recommend looking around in pawn
shops in your town before buying this online. >_>
