Summary

Psychological thrill ride

The Good

I loved the atmosphere of this game, felt like an actual horror movie. I loved the characters, the storyline and the fact that it twisted your mind to no end. I also loved the puzzles in this game, much more details, and polished than that of the first Silent hill game. I loved the fact that at times, you had to bring out a pencil and paper just to solve some of the puzzles. I loved the graphic's in this game also, looked almost like a real cinematic horror movie. The blood seemed real, the facial expressions of some of the characters seemed real. I also liked the movie sequences that were through out this title. Kinda kinda wish that the graphic's lined up more with the movie sequences though, that kinda took away from the experience just a bit.

The Bad

I didn't like the fact that this game was a bit short in length, not terribly short, but still it could've been a touch longer. also the movie sequences didn't quite line up with the overall graphic's of this game. however there were moments through out this title... when I could've swore that the characters were real people running around in there. But at the end of the day, it still takes away from the experience a bit.

The Bottom Line

A Psychological thrill ride, with twists and turns around every corner. You just never know what's going to happen next, even when you've played the game as many times as I have. You still find something new and exciting, weather it's in story elements, or in new items that you didn't know you missed. This game just keeps you going from beginning to end.
