Did You Know?


The opening sequence is a possible reference to the hospital sequence of Adrian Lyne's film Jacob's Ladder (1990). Konami has been known to reference "Ladder" in almost all of the Silent Hill installments. See more »


The flag on Alex's jacket is backwards. Alex is wearing a military jacket, and it's a tradition in the U.S. military for servicemen to wear a backwards flag on their right shoulder. See more »


Alex Shepherd: I noticed a banner out front that said something about an anniversary.
Judge Holloway: Yes, the town's 150 year anniversary.
Alex Shepherd: But wasn't that celebration, like, years ago? I thought I remembered being here for it.
Judge Holloway: You're right. Things tend to stay in one place around here. I guess it's time we took that down, huh?

Although still a somewhat good trip to Silent Hill it is also disappointing.
28 October 2008 | by See all my reviews

Yes, I was excited when I found out Silent Hill would be coming to the next generation consoles and I bought it soon after its release. I have now finished it and have to say while overall I liked it, I was also a bit disappointed by it too. Let's just say I like Silent Hill 2, 3, and Origins more than this one. I liked it a bit more than Room and I have never played one so I can not really say if I thought it was better or worse than that game. Even though I thought it was overall better than Room, its story is not quite as good as that game either. It does boast the best graphics of the series to date, the monster look good, and the characters do too, the problem is the story is not up to par with the other Silent Hill entries I have played. Also, the combat is not as good as the last game of the series Origins, as in that one the character was a lot tougher than Alex in this game, beating enemies with his fists. Alex has the ability to dodge, but this becomes annoying as you have to dodge to hit certain enemies and if you screw up your timing you are, well screwed. The story has Alex returning to his hometown of Shepard's Glen after a dream sequence involving a hospital. He quickly discovers the town is not as he remembers as citizens are apparently going missing. He could care less though as his main goal is to find his younger brother Joshua in the town that is slowly going to hell. You meet many denizens of the town and at times are warped to a hellish world where monsters eat those who seem to have some piece of the puzzle. Of course, in the end it leads back to the town of Silent Hill. A couple of plot points just did not really work for me, the game featured members of the order like those seen in the movie, I am not sure if they appeared in the first game, but I know I never saw them in any of the other games I played. It seems this one focuses a bit on the religious cult more than previous games, but a lot of stuff presented here just did not add up. So for the best looking of the Silent Hills play this one, story wise though it is a bit weak.
