The best game yet in the Silent Hill series thanks to an improved movement and combat system.
10 June 2008 | by Aaron1375See all my reviews

The story is not quite as unsettling and eerie as say two or three and I do prefer my game to have a good story more than just fighting. However, that being said the improvements made in the combat engine and the way you move can not be ignored. Neither can you ignore the fact Travis, the lead character this go around is the best butt kicker in the series as well. The dude can simply beat the enemies to death with his bare hands. The atmosphere is still top notch as well as Silent Hill is nice and foggy and you get to visit many locales during your trip through this nightmare town uncovering secrets about Travis' life as well of that of a mysterious little girl. The story is rather good, I liked two and three's a bit better as there really is nothing new being brought to the table. Basically, it is a prequel to the first Silent Hill game. You are Travis, a trucker who while on the road one night nearly hits a girl. He follows her and ends up pulling another girl from a burning house and after this wakes up in the nice little town of Silent Hill where he heads to the hospital to check on the girl. Suffice to say it is not to long before the nightmare creatures that inhabit Silent Hill are hot on Travis' tail as he must also navigate a mental institution, a theater, and a hotel to uncover the mysterious secrets surrounding his own life as well as the little girl. You also have the ability to enter a more evil form of Silent Hills as in previous editions. This time it is a bit less subtle than the way you entered the more demented world in part three as you touch mirrors, but it is rather cool looking in the mirror and seeing the more warped version of Silent Hill, or the slightly more normal Silent Hill. Fighting the monsters is fun too as I killed most of them by beating them down with my fists, still you have your typical pipes and hammers and guns too. Along with the weapons you typically find in Silent Hill, there are also some that are a bit different as you can now throw everything, but the kitchen sink at the enemy. So for a nice little trip to Silent Hill, try this game on for size...for me it is the best trip yet.
