I loved this game and especially if your a survival horror fan, you will too. Worth the buy, play it just for fun sometimes. Story is great, graphics good. Only bad thing is freezing at some cut scenes if you try to skip.

9/10 in my opinion.

its really good game I enjoyed my playthrough, and I still have to beat it one more time and pick up the last 300 points. I followed guide to make it easier though, it would have taken me at least double the amount of play time if I tried to figure everything out myself

i just got the opportunity to rent this game this evening, and started playing it. within the first 20-30 minutes of playing, i admit i had to shut it off else i was going to be spending my night playing it instead of sleeping. working early in the morning is LAME. but, suffice to say, i love it. very twisted and morbid to start, and in all honesty, the first location reminded me of an abandoned hospital that some friends and i explored one evening. i look forward to playing it more.

Use a guide wherever you can. Trust me, it will help A LOT.

I have 1000/1000 for this game, took me 5 days where I played a little each day.

yah I usually dont care for achievments but ima try 2 get a 1000 on this game. I usually go through the game once and then on the 2nd playthrough I use a walkthrough to find everything.

i enjoyed it but hate when they do hey all the sudden i am behind you scares, those are just cheap and really take away from the mood in the game
The best are when they give you hints of what is coming around the next corner but you never know if its really going to be there or not

I really enjoyed this game, but traded it in to help get another game. I'll have to pick it up again to get 1000 for it. Get the UFO ending first, the laser pistol it's a blast! (pun intended !)

Loved the game...even the second playthrough on hard with the laser pistol - but it definitely becomes monotonous for those last three endings. When the ending part actually plays it is cool, but I almost put it down after getting the third ending.

I'm split when it comes to this game. Some times I think it's great and really fun to play, and sometimes I just want to throw it out the window. Sadly the throwing part is taking over right now. I mean, I'm playing it through on medium to get all the endings and the laser gun to make hard a piece of cake, but WTF?! Medium is to hard for me. A friend said that it was really easy and that he never died on medium, so I've been counting my deaths, so far I've died 20 times and I'm still in the Sewers! I just can't beat the part where Elle is abducted or something, and then you have to face three needlers and after that a siam. IT'S FUCKING IMPOSSIBLE!
But whatever, some day when I'm tired of dying over and over because of the needlers I will just bring up the shotgun and blast them away so that I and the siam can dance jitterbugg alone in the dark. Give me a drink!

I give this game a 70/100 it is a good, kinda creepy game, nice survival horror. I would have given it an 80 but it took a huge hit in controls for me. I play inverted in EVERYTHING, and not being able to switch has almost ruined the experience for me. I almost stopped playing before I got my first achievement because I couldn't stand it. I decided to suck it up and get used to it, I'm glad I did, but it still bugs me once in a while when the action gets faster. I hate having to think about the controls while I am playing. I almost considered buying a controller with a stick inversion switch, and I only rented this, and won't play it after I 1000 it.

Other than that almost dealbreaker for me, I like it a lot. I'm glad I decided to tough it out.

I am a big fan of the series so naturally enjoyed it. I liked the story which was typically Silent Hillish and the enemies are as usual hideously brilliant. My favourite would have to be Siam. I loved how the 4 bosses were manifestations of the horrors inflicted upon the murdered children. Obviously Sepulcher and being buried alive, Scarlet and being cut, Asphyxia and asphyxia, Amnion and drowning/embryonic rebirth. Once again typically Silent Hillish.

I was a little disappointed that Pyramid Head made a cameo appearence. It took away from his true fame in Silent Hill, a manifestation of Jame's guilt and wanting to be punished. I really didn't like the Pyramid Head / Boogeyman ending.

The fact that ammo was scarce was good and I didn't mind the new combat system but it did make some of the monster less threatening especially the nurses and lurkers. I would have liked them compensate by making more areas where there were too many monsters to fight them all and adding a little to the fear factor.

All in all I enjoyed it and would give it a score of about 80%. Not as good as some of the older ones but good enough to make me get all 5 endings legitimately

I think you should know that the combat knife is hands down the best weapon in the game until you trade for the dagger. Just block and punish them when they make an opening i understand its frustrating but you gotta get the hang of it. also dont use the serums when you find them keep em. then when your low on health use it gives you full life back.

I love this game, not only do i have a 1000 for it but i got a 1000 on my GF's account on her bros account and on my friends account.
so thats like 20 playthroughs. and i loved each one.
Got say its due to the fact that i think the story is amazing, i enjoy every little hint and clue thats in the game to suggest what really happened.

Decent enough. My main objection were too much running back and forth and sluggish controls, but I guess that comes with the genre.

Really good considering it's made by the developers of Earthworm Jim (partially). (Someone correct me if I'm wrong)

I love survival horrors, and Silent Hill 1, 2, 3, and 4 were no exception. However, just once look at this pile of crap makes me go into nerd rage! I hate it to much- I find to bland, boring, non-scary, and a trashy story. I also noticed there were many glitches in the battle system. I'd rate this game a 3/10, and that's being generous. Sorry if it seems like I'm "bitching" but it just annoys me how they have ruined a great series.

Brill game but i kinda miss the part where the character itself sucked balls and couldn't turn as it made the game more challenging and also the puzzles weren't that hard tbh

Brutal game...I think its really boring,graphics are poor,and the music is annoying,all the environments are kinda the same,and the story is pretty lame,but the worst thing is that there is no invert controls....WHAT.......yes after 2 years they still have not fixed/patched this simple mistake!DOH!
This is the reason i got rid of this game 2 years ago,i picked it up for a few bucks kinda thought the controls would be fixed but i guess not.

Im grinding through it just to get 1000 then its getting traded in for a bag of potatoes or whtever!

Because of how Americanized the horror elements are in this game compared to other Silent Hill games, I'd say it's a bad Silent Hill game, but not a bad overall game. I still had fun playing it, but instead of being like "oh SHIT I think there's a so-and-so here...", it was like "oh look, a so-and-so, meh".

This was only my second foray into Silent Hill so my frame of reference was a bit limited.
Which didn't really matter as the game stands on it's own merits imho. The atmosphere is just as screwed up and grisly as you'd expect and the game reiterates my favorite part of horror games: Your not invincible. Guns are utterly ineffectual on the first playthrough and you have to out maneuver and hold off the tougher enemies to stay alive. You truly fear encounters with larger groups of enemies and rightfully so.
However in a more practical sense the controls can be quite cumbersome (dodging is going to test your patience) and some questionable game design (backtracking; in this day and age >_>) mar a pretty solid game. Just don't go in expecting SH2 and your in for a eerie 2 - 3 day romp with some bog standard cheevos, collectibles aside.

If you've really played SH2, then you should consider the backtracking in this game a treat considering what you had to go through in that game.

I thought this game was great, graphics could have been better but the storyline and gameplay where good IMO.

Finishing all the endings now for the 1000g, after that i'll probs never play it again but it was enjoyable to play.
