  • Silent Hill: - Fear of Blood Tends to Create Fear of the Flesh

    Oct 20, 2012 by jeremy1456 is a Lead on Epinions in Games
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Scary, Tense, Uncomfortable
    Cons: Clunky gameplay, Bad Graphics

    Summary: With the popularity of the survival horror genre it seemed only natural that, in the late 90s, many companies would try to cash in on its success. There were a few attempts here and there, and seemingly the only game developer that could emulate Resident ... read more

  • Visit Silent Hill: Shroud Yourself in Fog and Horror

    Nov 20, 2012 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Fun, atmosphere, puzzles, creepy
    Cons: Gameplay is dated and a little clunky, voiceovers/writing

    Summary: I’m going to say it: Silent Hill is one of the scariest games of all time. Instead of taking the Resident Evil survival horror approach, the developers put it upon themselves to make a game psychologically scary. Monsters you could ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Disturbing story, great atmosphere, overall fantastic presentation, some clever puzzles 
    Cons: Way too minor in the gameplay department, though the series was a new concept 

    Summary: The original Silent Hill was a very unique and disturbing game from Konami. Prior to Silent Hill, few console games were like this, and by this I mean with an emphasis more on the sharpness of the story and atmosphere than a focus on gameplay, points, ... read more

    Pros: Incredible atmosphere, intense music score, major replay value, amazing story too good for a videogame
    Cons: Somewhat uneven pacing, annoying puzzles, lacking voice acting

    Summary: I first became aware of the Silent Hill series several years ago when Nintendo Power published an article based on the series’ Wii entry, Silent Hill: Shattered Memories. At the time I read it, I really had no interest in survival horror games at ... read more

  • Horror adventure game

    Jun 29, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: The relationship among people.
    Cons: the grotesque monsters.....

    Summary: "Silent Hill"--- What is your image of the words?? Do you think it is quiet or an innocent place? or scary? When you see the cover of the game which shows a face of a fuzzy man, you absolutely feel curious about what happens in the game. It is an ... read more

    Jan 22, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: A very frightening game, with creepy graphical style and mind-rending sound-effects.
    Cons: The plot is somewhat ambigious. VERY scary to play, even now. Even for me.

    Summary: Man, I have some bad memories of this game. I remembered how much fun me and my cousin had playing Resident Evil 2 one weekend. Then I remembered how disturbed I was to play Silent Hill at my grandma's several months later. Every bit of my rational ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: frightening and unnerving atmosphere...
    Cons: ...until you hear the voice overs

    Summary: Preamble: I am paying homage to Seth MacFarlane and his hilarious show, Family Guy, with my title. Support the spiritual successor to The Simpsons (who pretty much passed away around the time Family Guy showed up) by purchasing the Season 1 and 2 DVDs. ... read more

  • Resident Evil can go to Hell!

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: It delivers what it promises; long, terrifying, challenging
    Cons: Wouldn't have hurt to deepen the plot a little

    Summary: Konami took what Capcom started and did something that no one thought could be done -- they actually made the survival-horror genre work. While Resident Evil can be a bit spooky in some places, Silent Hill is the epitome of true horror. I ... read more

    Pros: good idea, actually a scary game (somewhat), captivates you
    Cons: monsters easily killed, what the hell? kind of story line.

    Summary: alright... silent hill is the most scary game I have yet played (I have not gotten a chance to play SH2 yet) and that makes it cool... but if you think about it too hard this game goes from being scary to downright laughable! Most of the ... read more

    Pros: Super intelligent, high on atmosphere and undeniably ground shaking...better than anything before or since...
    Cons: Might prove too daunting, disturbing or hot to handle for certain players...

    Summary: Silent Hill : With the Ps2 sequal almost upon us, I thought I'd take some time to review, rate and praise the original silent hill by Konami. Which is without doubt the scariest 'thing' on the face of god's earth. Silent Hill tells the surreal and ... read more

    Pros: Great sounds
    Cons: A little too hard in places

    Summary: If you don't like to be scared, then Silent Hill is not for you. The atmosphere and sounds in the game make it all very creepy. The fantastic feature of using the vibrations in the joypad to reflect the heartbeat of the central character add to the fear ... read more

    Pros: Great atmosphere, characters and scare factor.
    Cons: Seriously? For this game? None...

    Pros: INCREDIBLY scary first half, intriguing story, effective graphics and sound
    Cons: Less scary second half; ambiguous endings may disappoint some

    Summary: Silent Hill is one of the best, most overlooked video games ever made. As always, Konami absolutely outdid themselves and delivered a truly stunning, unforgettable gaming experience. Until the sequel comes out in late September, I can safely say that ... read more

    Pros: Atmospheric, convoluted story, very good concept.
    Cons: Awful control scheme.

    Cons: fog, cheap enemy hits, a little bit confusing at times

    Summary: After seeing a preview of this game on a Wal-Mart scanner, I decided that the twenty dollar price tag was an excellent buy and that it would definitely get me at least a little bit spooked. Careful what you wish for. This game is quite ... read more
