The Silent Hill games have shown a narrative progression by which the nature of the town is expanded upon in each game. In the first two games, your character went to Silent Hill and had his horrific adventure. In the third, Silent Hill itself "came to" the main character of Heather, who merely wanted to have a nice day at the mall. In Silent Hill 4, the town has now invaded your last refuge of security, your home.
You play Henry Townshend, who lives alone in a small apartment in the bustling town of South Ashfield, half a day's drive from Silent Hill. After suffering from inexplicable nightmares, Harry awakens to find that his apartment door has been chained and padlocked shut from the INSIDE. He can't open his windows, and no one, even people standing directly outside his front door, can hear him when he pounds on the door and cries for help.
The game expertly evokes the desperate confusion and lurking fear you would feel if you simply couldn't get out of your house. The strangeness of Henry's situation is underscored by the fact that, tantalizingly, he can see the real world right outside his window, with cars and pedestrians zipping by on a street only fifty yards away.Read more ›
-More Psychologically Insane than ever before
The game does improve in these ways for the better, but according to fans, the cons outweigh the pros.
-Ghost enemies are highly annoying and can't die.
-First-person view is very clunky
-WAAAAY too much backtracking
In detail of the Cons, the puzzles are too confusing at points and are sometimes hard to follow.
Ghosts are these corpses that float after you and will persistently hunt you down and can not be killed.
Whenever exploring "The Room", you go into a first person view and the controls are a bit clunky, but are able to be adjusted to.
You are constantly having to backtravk back to your room, because you are now unable to carry unlimited items, like in previous Silent Hill games, so you have to store items in your storage trunk.
I enjoyed playing this game, unlike many, but many people would be disapointed in playing this game, according to the Cons, but the unique and disturbing storytelling is what interested me about this game more than the previous Silent Hill games.
Beware: If you are going to play this on your Xbox 360 (requires you to have a Microsoft made hard drive), the textures on the characters during cutscenes will pop in, or will not load, but everything else works fine.
for the Playstation 2. The game changes the traditional style of combat to include throwing objects.
The puzzles weren't as easy as previous installments,and the story line was definitely one of my favorites.
You can quickly immerse yourself with the chilling stories of each counter and their horrific end! A must
have for any true Silent Hill fan.
