If it's crap ... We'll tell you
Just bought it along with some other games today, all I really know about it is that it's a "horror" game with puzzle-like story. Sounded very intriguing, and is apparently a completely self-contained story, so I didn't play the first one, heard this was the best of the franchise. Thoughts from here?
*Note: I'm really not that big a gamer, I just bought this and some other games that intrigued me as a way to spend my lazy nights on spring break with nothing else to do. I understand this is quite a popular game.
It's a good game. Arguably the best in the franchise. If you like horror games, or psychological horror in general, then by all means play it. You will most likely enjoy it.
Or maybe you won't, whatever.
If you like it, be sure to check out the Silent Hill 3 and Silent Hill 4 as well. Great games.
The game is woo. The movie is boo.
I actually just sourced a copy of this, I pick it up after work tomorrow. What are you playing it on?
I played a bit of one a while back, the Room, whatever number that was, got pissed of fairly quickly but I hope to get the goods from this.
Silent Hill : The Room, is the only game in the series that doesn't live up to the quality set by the first game. They had said 4 started out as another game that was turned into a Silent Hill title midway through development.
Downpour isn't very good either.
You're right, i had repressed all memory of that game. Silent Hill 4 is actually great compared to Downpour. The Room (warts and all) is still better than most horror games out there, so don't give up on it too easily.
Kinda hard to talk about the game without spoiling too much, but it is a classic in the horror genre without a doubt. Fine example of great storytelling/art in videogames.
My personal favorite will always be 4 though.
Im going to have to say Silent Hill 3 is the better Silent Hill game.
Silent Hill 2 is good but 3 just out shines it.
