This game took a bit of a beating at release due to having a new dev team and the last 2 games being masterpeices that are still unsurpased decades later.. I remember at the time being very worried about the negative reception as while SH4 was not as good as its predesesors, it was still amazing and it still had a tallented Japanese team behind **** it had Eillen, she may have had an anouying misson, but the way she is slowly and a bit creepily intruduced to you and the main character and the way she intertwines with the story an the player emotions is a technique almost completely removed from modern games. Thanks to the industry trying it hardest to push away the OG gaming fans, for a new woke , diverse, audience.. After SH4s reception Konami gave the franchise to American studios, who absolutely butchered the frachise, creating not only bad SH games but some of the worst games in general.. SH 4 has stood the test of time and is much more appreciated today..
The game itself definently has a new feel for the franchise, there the fps perspective and a hub world. But that core japanese horror feel is in tact and its very good in terms of exploration combat ,etc. To this day its one of my favorite horror games.
The worst in the series, but is by no means a bad game...The most disappointing thing about the game, though is that it only borders on being scary, and this has always been one of the biggest elements in the Silent Hill series.
It's starting to look really long in the fang and could use an extended rest at some abandoned sanitarium. Otherwise, the only thing that's going to be scary about these games is the frightening pace Konami churns them out and just how far they've fallen from the original.
este es mi silent hill favorito, se que no es el mejor de la saga pero me encanta todo lo que es su historia, si bien el prota henry es... como decirlo un poco tosco? si con eso me quedo, no puedo negar que despues de este nunca volveria a ser lo mismo, bueno no se puede cambiar el pasado aun sigo con la esperanza que salga algo bueno de silent hill, ponte las pilas KONAMI
This game is not like other silent hill games. I am a real fan of this series but this game is not good. I always finish the games but i can't finish this one. The gameplay is extremely bad. I bored too many times and take many breaks. You need to do same things over and over again. You are going to apartment, hospital, child house etc. After half of the game you are going every place you been before. Part 1 and 2 of the game is the same. In this game, we don't have too many enemy type. They are repeating again. You fight a ghost and after few episode later you need to fight a ghost with a flame. This ghost can't be dead. You can't kill them. You can just slow down the ghosts. This is very annoying because they are too many and they kill your curiosity.
NOT SILENT HILL. This is the start of the death of the Silent Hill series. Linear story, backwards controls, and is not scary. Long frequest cut scenes get old quick. Do yourself a favor if you MUST play this one and just YouTube the cutscene movie. It's no wonder this is the last game by the original creators. Resident Evil 7, this is not.
SummaryTaking the series in a new direction, apprehension and fear immediately run high when the new main character, Henry Townshend, finds himself trapped in his own cursed apartment. Only by exploring mysterious portals leading to disturbing alternate worlds will Henry begin to uncover clues as to why he is trapped. However, in true Silent Hi...
