Compared to the other Silent Hill games I've played, this one was the most challenging by far when it comes to fighting and action. The monsters were a lot harder to kill and the bosses were more challenging, I've only played Silent Hill 2 & 3 and Downpour and those were more puzzle oriented like the traditional survival horror games usually are. None the less, this game still provides plenty of challenging puzzles and intense, frightening action. I highly recommend this to all survival horror fans.
We found a glitch in the game that would not let us continue because we died before killing 3 needlers in the sewer. This glitch has been documented and I have found various articles about it on line but no fix other than to restart the whole game. We sent it back. Super Bummed!
