I wanted to like this game is really did the puzzles were good but the lag and sloppy fighting mechanics made certain stages harder then they should. I would say if your a fan of the series then you might could stomach those issues but for me it became way to frustrating and wasn't the game for me.
I walked around for loooooooong time not doing too much. After a few hours I packed it up and sent it back. This is not like Silent Hill's of the past.... which might be a good thing for diehard fans, but it was to uneventful for me.
Well what I always say is "if it's not broke don't fix it" but in the case with the Silent Hill franchise it looks like their fixes broke the game for me. What happened to the challenging puzzle aspects from the old ones? This game was a breeze which made it it very mundane. The most interesting part was the story line, why I gave it a 2, but the fact that I was bored 45 minutes into the game left me to look up spoilers online. If you are a true SH fan I would not rent this game. I was hoping it was capture my imagination as 1,2 and 3 did but it's just another fail SH IMO.
