Trivia

This installment contains some interesting similarities with the acclaimed American Beauty (1999) directed by Sam Mendes: there is a father character who is an ex-military man and adapts compulsive disciplines even within the family, also a wife who completely lives under husband's control and appears to be catatonic-like at times. These two characters even share the similar wardrobes as designed in video game; Adam Shepherd takes his son to mental hospital to cover his crime, similar to what Chris Cooper's character does and the genuine reason behind this action is not revealed until the later part of both stories.

Quotes

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?

Really good game but a little anti-climatic
25 March 2009 | by jaylex_ffxiSee all my reviews

The game itself is a huge leap as it changes the combat system entirely from 1 and 2 (I didn't play 3 or 4 I'm assuming they're the same). For starters the game is more combat oriented with the introduction of using various combos and finishing moves to kill your enemies, you can also aim the gun yourself giving you the freedom to place a few pellets in certain monsters critical zones which can be really handy when your conserving those last 4 bullets that you 'wasted' 2 minutes ago fighting another creature.

The horror factor stands up to the silent hill name, really gory, really twisted and leaves you feeling cold due to the attention paid to certain details. The characters are likable and are great to interact with due to the new speech system allowing you to take complete control over certain dialogues. It's also great how you can have a combat buddy fighting alongside you, blasting monsters back to back.

My only complaint is the fact that the game is really anti-climatic towards the end, in many cases it feels that the designers just got bored and didn't bother with some greater in depth story line unlike in SH2 where you get two bosses and a scene explaining more of the story.

Overall the game is good and I give it 8 stars for the reason that the ending wasn't as good as it could have been, but it is definitely worth the look.
