    Really superstitious and/or ADD-afflicted types might want to steer clear for their own special reasons. Everybody else with a reasonably high-end gaming rig, the residents of Silent Hill welcome you.
  2. It's the well-directed story and its stunning conclusion that provides the much-needed payoff and motivation to finish the game. With a slew of secrets designed to encourage repeat visits, SH3 may not be "fun," but it certainly is compelling.
  3. But raising the levels of difficulty for both will not only make the game hard to play, as the rewards you can gain make up for that. Finishing the game on various levels of difficulty again, you can obtain various bonus weapons and even a bonus ending.
  4. Silent Hill 3 isn't so much about gameplay as it is about creating a disturbing world and immersing you in it, which is something it does very well.
  5. 75
    Scary fun, but some control issues and uneven puzzles make it less fun than its predecessors.
  6. Need I remind you that Silent Hill 2 failed to deliver a truly lasting horror experience on the PC. To our disappointment Silent Hill 3 doesn't expand on that aspect any further.

    You'll frequently dodge the oafish enemies instead of fighting. [Mar 2004, p.84]

Silent Hill 3 is still one of the scariest expeiences a PC gamer can get. But I highly recommend playing it with a gamepad. This really makes this game a lot more enjoyable. Expand
