Of all the games in the Silent Hill series, this is the only one that turned out to be a big disappointment. Even the first Silent Hill out does this thrown together programming. Sure, the graphics are good, but graphics alone do not make a game worth playing.
One hour into the game, and I had enough of the clunky controls, lack of camera control, and weapons that spontaneously disintegrate. How exactly do you break a tire iron anyway? The attacks are extremely slow, he can't run more than a half block without running out of breath (and you'll be doing a lot of running, those monsters will kill you in a few hits), and you can't even kick them while they're down. That's right, no stomping on them to kill them, one of the most endearing traits of previous Silent Hills.
If you're looking for a decent horror survival game, where you can hunt down and systematically destroy monsters, save your money. There are better games out there.
If you can't live without playing Silent Hill, go back and beat first four again. At least you won't be wishing for that hour of your life back.
