Silent Hill 3
God, what a nightmare..
This is the most disturbing silent hill in my opinion, its so freaky. One minute your in the mall and you go in an elavator the next minute ur decending down into a nightmare world with blood and rust every where. moaning and screaming in the distance, it really makes you feel like your in a nightmare. My favorite silent hill but ohnestly, it might be cause ive never played the first one though but i didint really care for the story line though, most silent hills have a shocking twist to the end but not this one. overall amazing game my favorite sient hill.
You thought they were monsters?
This is my first Silent Hill game that I have played. Silent hill is the best at allowing you to experience a nightmare, having to fight with average tools, you'll have to beat the enemy to death, if your bad at this you'll die quick. Play this game alone in the dark more like before you go to sleep so your tired and exosted. That way you'll feel worn out playing the game, and feel disuraged playing any further. The music and creepy creatures will make that happen. You'll feel to scared to go down that hallway with the hellish music and also hearing but not seeing the monsters down the hall. Scariest anything of. all time.
Best Survival Horror Game Ever Made!
Silent Hill 3 is probably one of the scariest survival horror video
games ever made!
Much more scary then any Resident Evil game or any other.
You play as Heather Mason (yes, daughter of none other then Harry Mason from Silent Hill 1) SH3 seems inspired not only by the movie Jacob's Ladder but also by Hellraiser and even Resident Evil to a certain extent as well as almost any David Lynch film (think Eraserhead, for example.
The game begins in a creepy amusement park filled with horrible, nightmarish monsters, However, this sequence will end as soon as Heather falls down a hole or dies... She then wakes up in a cafe at a shopping mall.
It is your job to guide Heather through not only the shopping mall but
also many other places in the game - such as through a subway, sewer, underpass, Daisy Villa Apartments (where a game changing and Silent Hill changing major event takes place) Part of Silent Hill (you'll be very familiar with some locations both from SH1 and SH2 btw) Brookhaven Hospital, and a few other locations. Some of these include the nightmare/otherworld versions of these places that turn bloody, creepy, nightmarish and hellish.
Along the way you'll meet various characters such as; Douglas, a private detective in his 50's, Vincent, a rather strange man and Claudia who seems crazy. You'll learn more about Heather, Harry and the other characters as the game progresses including through finding memo's and notebooks and such.
Heather really does have an attitude like a real teenage girl and acts
like one through most of the game yet she is mature for her age as well;
think Buffy from Buffy The Vampire Slayer (The TV Series)
(On a side note Heather is 17 years old btw)
SH3 is a short to medium length game taking around anywhere from 3 to 6 hours to complete but probably more for first time players and beginners of the game.
The cutscenes are well done and take place in game. Graphics are really good for a PS2 game and the atmosphere is very well done and creepy. Sometimes a room will turn into a nightmarish/otherworld realm right before your eyes.
The sound is good and so is the music and sound effects at times often very creepy and nerve wracking. The voice acting is ok but could have been better for some characters. Industrial sound effects provide for a chilling atmosphere.
There are puzzles to solve in the game. Some of these can be solved in an easy manner using logic and common sense. However for some puzzles you may need advice from a Silent Hill fansite that gives a walkthrough of the game such as on Gamefaq's.
Some of the puzzles are almost impossible to figure out; others don't make much sense.
The monsters and bosses are really creepy and seem like something straight out of Hellraiser but at the same time original as well for a Silent Hill game. Some of the bosses are tough but the final one is somewhat easy to beat.
My only complaint about the game so far is the lack of items and ammo. It seems there are not really enough health items or ammo compared to the many monsters you'll run into in the game. This is not too much of a problem as you'll have plenty of melee weapons such a steel pipe, katana, etc. that don't require ammo (unlike the handgun, shotgun or submachine gun does)
For every time you beat the game a secret will be unlocked. There are dozens of outfits to unlock for Heather as well as 3 weapons (flamethrower, submachine gun with unlimited ammo and heather beam), a weapon/outfit combo, and a few other secrets as well (such as getting a gold/silver steel pipe from a fairy in the sewer system your second time playing through if you know what to do to get it)and some SH2 references hidden throughout the game.
You can adjust the number of bullets you get every time the game is beat (just reload a saved game from the end then beat the final boss again then save your game results over the previous game results) up to 5x to get much more ammo throughout the game. You can
also play the game in extreme mode (there are about 20 extreme modes) after beating it on hard.
I rate Silent Hill 3 5/5 stars for fun, creepy atmosphere, intense gameplay, great graphics and chilling sound as well as mind bending puzzles.
On a side note: If you have Silent Hill 2 saved on the same memory card you use to play Silent Hill 3 with there will be a few SH2 references in this game.
Konami's second survival/horror Masterpiece!!!
I played silent hill the first and it was good but It took me a while to get into and then beat. I truly thought if this became a series it wouldn't keep me in it for long.............BUT THEN THE SEQUEL!!!! Silent hill 2 proved me so wrong I had no self respect!! The game was so great to me I couldn't help but to stand there and view the environment for pretty much half of the game play!!! Everything fits perfectly together in this game, the crazy disfigured creatures, the demented and twisted music, the psychologically horrific atmosphere, and the bizarre story. Even though it was extremely depressing, mind twisting, and taunting they nailed it so good it didn't matter.( In fact I loved It was like that. It wouldn't be much with out it.) AND......................THEN........SILENT HILL 3!!!! They actually made an another amazing sequel (while the second one was still my favorite)this one is way more darker and again fit perfectly together. I also like how they changed it up and didn't keep making it a male character and had a female instead!!To me personal its the greatest experience you'll get out of survival/horror games. Overall I give it a nurse out of 10...oops I meant 10 out of 10 for silent hill 2 and 3, and for the first a 7 out of 10.
silent hill 3 is so scary
i had play silent hill 2, but silent hill 3 was more scary then 2, i so jump many time, but yea the story was good and gameplay was scary and jumping, i been kill so many time, the graphics its gooder then 2, overall i do recomment scary people playing this game.
King Of The Hills!
Silent Hill over powers all Silent Hills games. The 3rd chapter brings spooky to the gamers. It's very dark then the other games, the game's story is truely a sequel to the first Silent Hill back in 1999. Heather is the main character and she has a dark past in Silent Hill. The gameplay is still the same nothing new but you can give bait to those wicked dogs. But you do get cool weapons like a katana and a light beam sword. The sound is sweet, spooky, loud. The voice overs are very good no dull voices thank you Konami for that. The graphics are the best you got this rusty bloody area makes the game so cool. The monsters are just plain creepy too. The game is not that long but you do get costumes, and some weapons. And you get a bonus of CD that has 25 songs or so to listen. Play this game at night or not, Silent Hill 3 is the most scariest Silent Hill game in the series. Play it twice or three times you can find many endings so I hope you do well to get a perfect ending. This game is so awsome so pick it up if you dare.
BEST silent hill
trust me this game is awesome, just get it... Heather is the only playable girl character in the series, but she can hold up to the males characters. The game has a pretty epic story but if you havent played the first game you wont get the little clues as much. just get it
The silence is broken...again!
This game is the core of all things silent hill! this is one of the scariest games I've played ever! The only downside in my opinion is that you can't really explore silent hill much. The riddles are complex and if you do things just right, you can make the terror flow like a river. there are several weapons in this game. My favorites are the knife, shotgun, and the katana.***HINT-HINT*** on your first play through, do it on normal to let the flow, and get extra items(silencer!).
best silent hill to date
silent hill has been a sucess since the first one ive played origins which was boring this one is probally the best in the series you play heather mason harry masons daugther.the games graphic are the best ever seen in silent hill the gameplay is awesome the sound is the best i suggest you play it
A awesome horror game
Silent Hill 3 is an amazing horror game. Although Silent Hill 4 was my first Silent Hill ever, 3 kept up to it despite it being a newer game. The story line, monsters, and places in the game are great. It is truly a scary game and isn't by all means too easy. In my opinion, SIlent Hill 3 was actually harder and more challenging than Silent Hill 4. After I beat a game I usually trade it in for a different but I do not plan on ever getting rid of this game. It is one i can play again and again and still enjoy and get creeped out. I would recommend this game to anyone.
