Product Description

Product Description

Silent Hill 3 continues the series' trademark brand of psychological horror and terrifying gameplay. As a teenage girl named Heather, players must explore and unravel the mysterious connection between the god-forsaken town and her inner fears. The game features enhanced graphical detail, a more complex storyline and even more grotesque monsters than the previous games.

Amazon.co.uk Review

Play Silent Hill 3 and you'll never scoff at anyone that admits they got scared by a video game again: this isn't survival horror, it's full on survival terror. Away from the shlock B-movie stylings of the Resident Evil series, the Silent Hill games have carved, with a particularly rusty machete, a rather different niche for themselves with a line in taut psychological horror that really gets under your skin rather than just providing a few cheap shocks. The games' primary means of achieving this is via their superb graphics and sound which immediately create an oppressive atmosphere where you're constantly in fear of exactly what manner of evil will happen next.

Unfortunately veterans of the series will know that more often than not; nothing much ever does happen next, except maybe the appearance of one of the small number of stock enemies. They'll also be perturbed by the constant recycling of backdrops in this third edition--particularly in yet another visit to the Silent Hill hospital. The game does stop pulling its punches for the especially disturbing last third of the adventure though, and anyone new to Silent Hill is likely to be scared silly for its entire duration.

The game's other faults, such as a clunky control system and storyline are (for no apparent reason) stocks of the survival horror trade so it would take a particularly surly gamer to deny the game's obvious quality. It'll also take someone with concrete underpants to remain unfazed by the whole thing, particularly the church with the bleeding walls... --David Jenkins

Played in full daylight, with a room full of mates, you'll be wandering what all the fuss is about. You start the the third instalment of Konami's increasingly popular survival horror series as a pleasant young girl gone to her local mall for a new jumper and a burger, before setting off home to watch Family Fortunes with her Dad. However turn the lights out, ramp the sound up to full capacity, open the windows and plug the headphones in. Suddenly things aren't quite so genteel any more. Silent Hill 3 ramps up the shocks straight away. You will discover countless bloodied corpses, vomit covered monsters and (worst of all) the sinister god-bothering Claudia. She very creepy!! As with each visit to the soundless 'berg, you have an entirely new cast of characters with the main character being (for the first time) a young girl by the name of Heather Morris. Unlike Harry or James's adventures in the first 2 games, you are not looking for a lost relative. Instead your only goal is survival and there are some disgusting beasties intent on making your escape oh so difficult (unless of course you play on the easy setting). I won't give any of the story away but before playing Silent Hill 3, you may want to but yourself a copy of the original Silent Hill to give you a bit of background info, but it isn't essential that you do so. Okay, the first Silent Hill is a 4 or 5 year old PSone game and may look incredibly ropey, but is still the scariest of the series so far and you can probably pick it up for under a tenner. You get the usual selection of puzzles and suprisingly interesting boss battles, but this game is all about atmosphere. The Silent Hill series is all about what you can't see. For example you're are walking down a pitch black corridor with only your pocket torch for company.Read more ›

Well...last Christmas (2003) I received Silent Hill 3, but since then I have been pretty much too petrified to play it. However, just recently I decided to give it a go, and about half an hour ago I finished Silent Hill 3!
I must say, and I am definitely a gaming veteran, that this is one of the greatest games I've ever played. It does follow the same old survival horror formula (walk around, shoot some enemies, run out of ammo, solve puzzle, look at map, find ammo, fight boss, etc) , but it feels like so much more than a game.
First things first, the storyline. Basically, if you haven't played the first Silent Hill game, you may have a lot of trouble following the storyline, as it simply is a continuation of that story.
I didn't have a clue what was happening, but when I got confused, I went on [...] and read one of the storyline analysis's that they have on there - it really helps a lot and I would recommend doing so.
In a nutshell, the game revolves around a girl named Heather Mason. While shopping in the mall one day, the world around her suddenly becomes twisted and dark. Almost like she has been placed in an alternate reality.
However, this game isn't just about magic spells or bottomless monster stories; the storyline IS highly sophisticated, admirably ambitious, difficult to swallow, and indeed disturbing.
Right. The game. I think anyone who has played it will agree, these are probably the best graphics to be seen on the Ps2. Forget Final Fantasy X's FMV scenes, the in-game graphical physics in SH3....I haven't seen anything like them.
You'll find yourself spending time just randomly turning from side to side in a room, watching how the lifelike shadows twist as you turn your torch away from them.

This game is an absolute classic, a masterpiece....smooth graphics, easy controls and REALLY REALLY scary gameplay....It sounds like an old fashioned cliche but the first rule of this game is to play it alone and in the dark, late at night...if you attempt to play it during daytime the feel of the game has gone...it isnt the same....so, if you are brave enough to do this you will not be disappointed....eerie noises, claustrophobic atmospheres and a REAL feel that you are really living the nightmare of the game....I'm not even halfway through the game yet and have been scared witless by distorted voices, howling and whispering in every area i have visited.....I cannot critisise this game and those that do can only be the sort of people who watched the "Blair Witch Project" and ended up disappointed because they "didnt see a witch..." If you have a vivid imagination buy this game now..if not, stick to Tetris or super mario....either way you wont be disappointed!!!!

Lets get the bad points out of the way first - the controls are almost exactly the same as those used in Silent Hill 2 (they don't really bother me much, but everyone else I've heard talking about the last game seems to hate them), and the camera can sometimes be a pain. But that's it, no more complaints, just great, somewhat disturbing, fun.
The storyline won't disappoint SH fans, as many of the loose ends from SH1 are tied up. You play a teenage girl named Heather, who is suddenly plunged into a dark and twisted world (though I'm sure any Silent Hill veteran would've guessed that last part). As always SH3 has its fair share of oddballs, but the monsters can out-weird any of the so-called "normal" people. Most of the shambling, scuttling and swirly/scything (watch out for them, they're nasty) things you'll meet look like they've jumped straight off a butchers hook, with the exception of the nurses, who look healthier than they did in their previous incarnation. Luckily for Heather, there are plenty of weapons at your disposal. There's the usual pistol, shotgun and big whacking-pipe, but there's now a sub machine gun for you to play with, along with a few nice close combat weapons. And, of course, there are the compulsory bonus weapons which are provided on completion of the game (that is, if you can meet the requirements).
The environments (my favourite thing about the SH games), while not leaps and bounds ahead of SH2, are all wonderfully done, and the shadows are still as fascinating as ever; shifting around with the sway of your flashlight beam. There are a fair few "Let me out of here!!!" set-pieces, the best of which is in the dark version of the hospital, you'll reach a room with a mirrored wall. Just stand and wait in front of it. Trust me... mwahahahaa!
