Gary Hartley Writes: Silent Hill isn't jump-out-from-the-shadows scary, it takes the time to get into your head. You have as little idea as Harry what's going on out there and with no logic or understanding to ground your fear in, all that's left is a primal urge to survive and to fear the unknown. Harry's not a brave man; the game doesn't teach him to overcome the inexplicably macabre and bizarre town as it lines up nightmarish pitfall after pitfall for him to battle, he's simply a father more scared of losing his daughter than he is of the town. Even that's tested at times. Severely.
