Being a hardcore fan of the series, I was a little worried about the new direction that they were going and all the "reimagining" thing, and I was expecting to be just an "OK" game. The way I saw it, they were just trying to make a few easy bucks taking advantage of the original masterpiece that was Silent Hill on PSX.
But I have to admit, after I started to play it, I just became hooked by the story and the psych feauture. All the diferent ways the game may take, depending on the players personality and psyche is really awesome.
By playing it on an PS2, you can clearely see that the game was made for the Wii and that the PS2 version was just a way to give a chance for those who dont own a Wii, but still the game has alot of potentional.
The chasing sequences can get a little confusing for some people, but after getting used to the games mechanics you'll get through those easily.
The puzzles are fun to do and sometimes quite challenging but not to the point of frustrating, where you just want to throw away the controller
Overall the game has an good story with a interesting ending. The gameplay is fluent and easy to get the hang of, soundtrack (by Akira Yamaoka) is also great. So, either if you're a newcomer or a fan of the series you should defenetly give this game a try.
