This game has given me new hope for the Silent Hill series.
27 December 2009 | by See all my reviews

I was very afraid that Climax would once again tarnish the series, but boy was I wrong! This is a highly competent re-imagining of the original Silent Hill game. The music is incredible (as always) and has a great mix of ambient and melodic tracks (don't really know how to word that, but I hope I'm getting my point across), though sometimes I felt that the music detracted from the eeriness of the game (the Mall, for example). The graphics are gorgeous with very detailed areas and easily readable text on posters, billboards, signs, etc. The psyche profiling was a cool addition that will greatly enhance replay value, although the first playthrough you don't really realize how much the profiling affects the game because you don't have another playthrough to compare it to (once again I'm not sure if I'm wording this as clearly as I can...sorry if that was confusing). The flashlight mechanics are absolutely amazing; it feels completely natural and it enhances an already detailed world with shadows and falling snow. I also felt that the cellphone was an interesting gameplay mechanic that gave a new layer to the world surrounding Harry with the ability to take pictures and find echoes, as well as call the numbers found throughout the game. Many players will hate the fact that there is no fighting in this game, but I believe that no fighting ramps up the fear and tension. Multiple times throughout the game I found myself freaking out when deciding which way to run in the Nightmare as monsters pursued close behind. Players might also dislike the swapping of rusty decay for ice and snow, but I felt that it was appropriate for the game and story, and it added to the isolation felt throughout the game. The characters are very fleshed out and believable with outstanding voice acting and animation. The story itself is a deep and enthralling piece of work jam packed with the symbolism and weirdness that Silent Hill is known for; it truly is psychological horror. Overall this is an extremely interesting and very well made game (albeit a short one) that will scare and enthrall most players. Definitely worth the money!
