  1. Maneuvering and combat are both very clumsy, and the whole game leaves you wondering about the choices the game designers made. [June 2005, p.95]

    Best game series EVER. Instead of surviving the horrors of zombies and monsters as typical police or war veterans, you play as un experienced students who need to survive the horrors of Fallcreak. Great story, great graphics and great fun factor. Highly recommend it. We need a third game@! Full Review »

    Ever play a game thats gonna be memoriable and nostagic later? No? Well this is one of them. This has got to be the best game ive played besides its sequel. The sequel is AMAZING and the only reason ratings are bad from critics are that silent hill creators PAID THEM to rate it so low. This is a very great game, that im waiting patiently for the 3rd for PS3. Full Review »

    Its budget price origins are clear to see but its high school setting and co-operative survival horror gameplay make for an enjoyable, if rather short, experience. Full Review »
