College was a weird time for all of us, I’m sure.
Either way, the fourth game in the Silent Hill series represents a departure from eerie survival horror to the pseudo-action games that follow it. Silent Hill 4: The Room is not pure survival horror, nor is it as action-centered as the later titles.
And yet, it is not a lukewarm title, either. It is a transitional fossil, and perhaps because it was developed by Team Silent, the group behind the first three games, it retains much of what made the first few great, all the while adding in some variety in gameplay and story."
