Play your worst nightmare
18 August 2002 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

Harry and his daughter are going to Silent Hill for a vacation. Just

as they arrive a person walks out onto the road. Harry swerves to

miss the person and ends up crashing. When he comes to he

can't find his daughter. Was she unharmed and went to get help?

Was she dazed and walked off in any direction? Or did someone

take her? There are also very bizarre things going on in the town.

'Silent Hill' is the most frightening game I have ever played. But it

isn't the type of horror with 'monsters jumping out at you' made

famous in the also excellent 'Resident Evil' series. This game is

much more of a psychological horror game, playing games with

your mind. In a sense its a 'mind f&$%'. I found myself having to

get to the end of the game to find out what happens to Harry and

his daughter, the story line is extremely gripping and twists and

turns as the game progresses. The sound track is brilliant, it is as

if they translated fear, horror and hell into music. While 'Silent Hill'

is not 'run around and shoot everything that moves' type of game it

certainly is filled with violent and disturbing images. In a sense it's

like someone videotaped your worst nightmare and now your not

only watching but also playing. Top class horror, a must play.
