Scary Survival Horror-Not a shoot em Up For Goodness Sake!,
This review is from: Silent Hill 2 - Inner Fears (Video Game)
Dont buy this if you are looking for a Resi Evil blast all zombies in sight game. This series is brilliant and SH2 is by far my favourite. The game makes you THINK in terms of the story as the clues are hidden throughout James' quest.It is intenionally circimspect with the clues-no beating you over the head with a sledgehammer- "oh we go this way then..." The endings ARE worth completing the game over and over for as they give you a unique insight to SH. Admittedly there are a few flaws - such as the translation from Japanese to English is a bit wooden and James can seem to be a bit thick at times..but hey dont complain.
The visuals are superb and the sound...well thats something else- building on the soundtrack from SH1-evocative and scary in equal measures.
The puzzles in hard mode need the grey matter and you dont(thankfully) have to get key from safe to open dungeon for key to door to get key to open the gate to the next level!!!
Compared to some of the rubbish out there this game is streets ahead of the rest.Now I,m off to the pub-if only it wasnt so darn foggy outside.............
