Rated 9 out of 10 by Alpha101 A Step Down From SH2, But Still Great
I was a little disappointed from this game, because it does not live up to SH1 or SH2 in my opinion. Getting that out of the way, it was still a great game. The story was pretty interesting, the combat was smooth (most of the time), and it was even creepier than SH2, which is a tough feat. Also, it is one of the most gorgeous games I have ever played. The graphics are amazing! This is a must have for any SH fan.
Rated 10 out of 10 by i got squeezed Scary game, yet good music
I bought this couple weeks ago since I missed playing it while back, and now I finally found the game for so long, once I got home with the game, I couldn't stop playing it, the game is dark, and creepy looking, I suggest playing in the dark for a real scare, with disturbing creatures, creepy designed bosses, and very good music. THANK YOU Akira Yamaoka. Off with the story, you start out as a young lady named Heather, and shes lost in th mall and you gotta find how to get out the mall and many places, you go to an amusement park, hotels, etc. When Heather sets out on her journey she mistakenly finds whats really behind Silent Hill 3 of the creatures, mysteries.The length of this game is pretty good, you mainly have to run to get a good rating at the end of the game, Hard Mode is a real challenge, theres pretty cool weapons you get to choose from if you do certain things during the story, So if your a SH3 fan and love to get scared, then buy this game asap!!

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.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Monster Hunter A great survivor horror game
This is one of the greatest games I've ever played and one of the scariest. This game along with Silent Hill Origins are the two scariest Silent Hill games I've played. Although, I haven't played IV or I. I've read reviews saying by some that Silent Hill 2 is the scariest and some people say SH3 is the scariest. Let me tell you something, SH2 is not as scary as 3. The story in 2 is easier to understand and in that aspect SH 2 is better but lets face it, we don't play these type of games just for the story do we? SH 3 is much scarier than 2 because of one simple fact - you spend a lot more time in the "other world" in SH3 plus you play a teenage girl instead of an adult so that also adds in a little bit of a sympathy aspect. This game is a flat out scary game with more monsters and for a true survivor horror game you will love this game...trust me on this...all SH games I've played are great but SH2 can't beat SH3 and Origins in fright. The only negative is that the story is hard to follow. Do you want a great survivor horror game? Play this one.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Auron22 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.
Rated 10 out of 10 by projectpat 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.
Rated 10 out of 10 by LeLe 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.
Rated 9 out of 10 by zach123 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.
Rated 10 out of 10 by MojoRison989 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!).
