GamesRadar writes: "The Silent Hill franchise has always been the blossoming antithesis of its survival horror rivals. Where Resident Evil has the player desperately foraging every drawer, chest and corpse for ammunition to fire at hordes of flesh-eating creatures, Silent Hill immerses the player in a macabre and enigmatic world of suspense, panic and uneasiness filled with nightmarish aberrations and the most flaccid of weapons to fight them with."
* Keeps some elements of the original
* Still has great atmosphere
* Does little new
* Too obviously linear
* Not overly scary
