Stop it! Please!

Summary:

For me, Silent Hill has always been a very special series. Whereas its `influence`, Capcom`s Biohazard (Resident Evil) series resorted to highly obvious monster-pops-out-of-nowhere tactics to scare its players, Konami`s take on the so-called survival horror genre offered a far different way to terrorize gamers. During the early days of the original Silent Hill`s development, I distinctly recall an interview whereby the team admitted that their goal was to depict hell itself; they had asked various individuals what their ideas of the devil's playground were, and proceeded to use them.

very good, though does feel different

The good:

graphics
story
creepiness
variety of weapons

The bad:

short levels
feels more like resident evil

You're immersed into a trapped world, desperately tring to find a way out. This latest installment is no different. Trapped in your apartment, with no where to go but a hole in the wall. The frustration of not being able to leave is an excellent level of the game, and the first person view makes it feel very personal. The worlds, I feel, could be a bit longer and more in depth, and the new fighting takes a little getting used to. Monsters charge at you now RE s...
