Yes yes yes!!!! Survival horror at its absolute best, the puzzles are impossible and abstract, the enemies are frightening and the game oozes atmosphere. A compelling story and that clunky game play that is what a survival horror is meant to be! Not a call of duty kill fest. It leaves you afraid to confront enemies when it is so hard to do so. It also does not spoon feed you solutions or quest markers which makes the experience so much more personal.
Love it , buy it and play it alone in the dark and never look back.

Silent Hill is a popular survival horror game with Silent Hill 2 Regarded as the best in the series. I agree.

Silent Hill 3 is still a great game, don't think otherwise. But if you've played Silent Hill 2 don't expect the leap you saw in 1 to 2, it's more the same but I guess that's good. This Silent Hill sees you as Heather, a young teen that has fallen into the nightmare that is Silent Hill. But why? Who's doing this and why does this seem familiar to her? If I told you I'd ruin it.
The game is more jumps than number 2, although number 2 made you wonder what was behind you or that noise from the distance. It does improve in the graphics department though, damn are they stunning. I feel like I'm being too negative but the game really is good, it's like an expansion pack for SH2, but being able to compare this to SH2 should be reason enough to get it...Well hurry.

Still an amazing game and the product arrived in great condition. I have always been a huge fan of this series and it's definitely worth playing even in comparison with the current generation of consoles.

Always been a big fan of survival horror and from now completing Silent Hill 3, I can tell you that this is the pinacle of the genre, by far one of the best games I have played for the playstation 2, the effects combined with the sound make this one of the PS2's highlight games this year, anyone who is a fan of the Silent Hill or Resident Evil series will enjoy this alot.
My only slight concern that has remained with surival horrors is the fact that they are still very short and dont have as much replay value as I would like, although this is present on Silent Hill 3 bare in mind thats no more then ALL the other games in the genre...

Waking up from some kind of blackout which involved thick, claggy looking bloody pumping out of the plug-hole of a dirty looking bathtub you make your way down a dingy corridor lined with evil-looking rusty metal fittings and very dodgy looking stains. At the end of the corridor is a bizarre effigy of a hanged woman desperately clinging onto the hand of an infant. Not sure of what you are seeing you wheel around to be faced by a sinister looking doll staring at you from a bloody stained wheelchair while in the background clanging industrial noise reminds you of the bowels of hell... loosening just like yours are. Welcome back to Silent Hill.
I don't know about you but I just don't care that survival horror is getting a bit long in the tooth. I don't care that Konami and Capcom still wrestle each other for supremacy using the same old scenarios (biochemistry gone insane - Resident Evil and subjective voyages into repressed memory and dark secrets - Silent Hill). And whats more I'm delighted that with Resident Evil moving over to the Gamecube Silent Hill is back again on the PS2. A certain mag recently commented that 'where can the genre go from here?' well, as long as the stories are so involving, sinister and well presented who cares where the genre goes as long as it isn't far away.
Silent Hill 3 marks an immediately obvious departure, albeit minor from its two predecessors. For the first time, with this adventure you will be able to understand the plot, where as with the first two episodes the ultimate outcome was bleak and highly open to your own interpretation. This departure bears out in practical terms too because from the very outset when you are cast into a theme park filled with grotesque monsters the action is significantly more visceral and less cerebral than before. Personally I was a big fan of the downbeat, puzzle heavy mix of the previous instalments but here rather than cutting anything out they have added more. There is still plenty of brainpower required, but for the first time in the series you may find yourself slugging it out. Of course this is often literally the case as bullets and shells are thin on the ground and you are often reduced to a knife, pipe, mace or even a katana. This all makes for a superior gaming experience with you often feeling in real danger, rather than just the threat of danger that haunted the previous games.
Despite the action heavy content the little scares haven't been neglected. Mannequins bleed, children scream, anonymous creatures roar and grunt and at one point a telephone rings abruptly as you walk past it. The nurses are back too and more screechy and jerky than ever. The richness of detail in this game will never dissapoint you and as we have come to expect from this developer the voice acting and cut scenes are of a very high standard.
It must be said that the architecture of SH3 doesn't really offer anything new. The music is pretty similar to previous efforts, the game engine is the same, the same type of puzzles are employed and for god's sake guys did we really need a third visit to Silent Hill Hospital? But I think in truth I would have been disappointed if this game didn't follow on closely from the last. In a latter chapter when you finally make it onto the streets of the town itself I felt a sense of edgy nostalgia when I revisited the Heaven's Night club and the thought that the game might drag me back up to Silent Hill Historical Society was genuinely unnerving. Okay so the manufacturers haven't really reinvented the wheel here but at least they have made a big effort to make the monsters you face more varied. There is everything you could wish not to meet here from running things, to crawling and flying things plus a grab-bag of satisfying boss encounters. The numerous new locations too are absolutely beautiful in a sick way with twisted sculptures and foreboding symbolism everywhere.
So there you have it then. There is nothing brand new, but what there is is 110% solid gold classic gameplay. If you enjoyed the previous two you will adore this and if you didn't you won't, but if you have never played any of them, then for gods sake get this, and play it on a surround sound TV with the lights off right now.
