Silent Hill 3 Review

Silent Hill 3 isn’t so much about gameplay as it is about creating a disturbing look and feel and immersing you in it, which is something it does very well.

Silent Hill: Top 3 Misconceptions (Spoiler Free)

Ever since my first time finishing Silent Hill on the ps1, I have been enamored with the series. Each of the 3 core games in the series stay in steady rotation in my personal game collection, but there is a dark side to my love for this foggy town. The twisting and hard to grasp nature of the story line has been the source of many fan theories and alternate explanations regarding this haunting tale. So I decided to use this month of horrors to full effect by digging into the lore of this survival horror masterpiece, and try to set the record straight………………………….I’m sure this will end well……………………right?

Released in early 1999 by Team Silent under the Konami umbrella, Silent Hill was their answer to Resident Evil, but became so much more. With focus on psychological horror and atmosphere, Silent Hill stood out from the number of Resident Evil clones at the time and forged its own legacy.

As a series, Silent Hill became one of the giants of the survival horror genre, with titles to this day still getting compared to Silent Hill. Not only did it have a major impact on the survival horror genre, but the industry as a whole.

From its technical wizardry for a PS1 title, incredible atmosphere and sound design, quality exploration and puzzles, memorable characters and an ambiguous plot that leaves many things up to interpretation, the first entry of the Silent Hill series is an incredible achievement for how much they got right off their first attempt. It would only get better from here.

This Silent Hill review/analysis/critique/retrospective looks at how the game was made, what makes it work, digging into the plot, and more.
