Silent Hill 3 review

Reviewed September 02, 2008

bloomer says: "The astonishing quality of the original Silent Hill was of a nature so weird that it seemed unlikely to be replicable in sequel form. Silent Hill's logic was that of an abstract nightmare, its methods of sensory, emotional and intellectual disorientation most damaging when you had no clue that they were coming. This kind of lightning tends not to strike twice in the same place, but Konami have resolutely continued to fling bolts towards the same patch of ground – with surprising results. It's a ..."

lisanne says: "My personal fears are sporadic, but unusual. I'm not afraid of death. I'm not afraid of heights, insects, spiders or pain. I'm not scared of ghosts.

midwinter says: "If there is one thing that survival horror games have in common with the popular movies that inspired them, it would to be their affinity for sequels. No good horror franchise is complete without a handful of rushed, cash-in-quick style follow ups that milk the product for all it's worth. It's a fact that most sequels to popular horror movies are terrible, but it would seem that the reverse is true for their interactive counterparts. Where one becomes tired and stale, the other grows and evolves..."

zoop says: "Well, it looks as if Silent Hill 3 has finally hit the states, and wherever else it hit at that time, to boot. About time, after nearly five delays. Let me state this before you read the review: I am a huge fan of Silent Hill 2. I felt as if it were near perfection of the feeling that you get when you become too scared to continue playing. The game was grainy in the “light” version of the town, and petrifying in the “dark” version of the town. I was expecting Silent Hill 3 to succeed it in every..."
