SummaryAbsorbing from start to finish
The GoodThis was the first Silent Hill game I've played and I really enjoyed it. Having been a fan of the survival horror genre since Alone in the Dark I've played a lot of games of this variety but this one really stood out. This is perhaps the most absorbing, disturbing, convincing games I've played in ages. The controls are simple and intuitive, the levels long and fun to explore, and there are four endings, which gives the game considerable replay value. Also, this is a pretty long game, which is nice. I'm usually able to clear a game in a little over a week and this one had me going for a solid month.
The BadLocking on to a desired enemy in the fight sequences can be difficult. During the last half of the game, when you get your "side kick" of sorts, it can be very difficult to get her to follow you, since she'll get stuck on things like attacking the zombies, which don't die. Also, there are lots of bats. Bats shouldn't be enemies in any video game. You'll see why.
