Did You Know?


The Blue Creek apartment building in Silent Hill is a reference to the film Blue Velvet (1986). "Blue", for the movie's title; and "Creek" as a synonym for "River", for the Deep River apartments seen in the film. The apartments in the game are very similar to the look and overall layout of the Deep River apartments in the David Lynch film. See more »


When James ducks into the closet, he loads one clip into the handgun and fires ten bullets, emptying the magazine. When the cut scene ends, the gun is loaded with the amount of bullets it was carrying before the cut scene. See more »


James Sunderland: I was weak. That's why I needed you... needed someone to punish me for my sins... but that's all over now... I know the truth. Now it's time to end this.

Scary? Yes, Disturbing? Very, Good?, TERIFFIC!!!!
16 May 2003 | by (Canad) – See all my reviews

The First time I played this game I wasen't expecting to be what it really was. At the time I thought nothing can be scarier than Resident Evil, boy was I wrong..... This game is absalutly fabulas, I was so unable to get this game off my mind, I would be so exited to get home from school to play it, I was litterally writing, "James Honey did Somthing happen to you? after we got seperated in that long hallway?" on the corner of my Note books! This Game has one of the best story lines ever; James Sunderland, recived a letter from his wife Mary, it said, "In My restless dreams I see that town, Silent Hill, You Promised you'd take me there again someday, but you never did. Well, I'm alone there now in our speical place waiting for you..." James is very suspisious of this letter and decides to go to Silent Hill, only one thing bothers him about doing so, His Wife Mary has been dead for 3 years. Very Intruging story, there were many parts where I had to turn the light on while I played it, there were parts wich made me want to cry, there were parts that made me think, "What the H***?". I very much erecomend this game, It will keep you at the edge of your seat.
