The fear of yesteryear still holds up!
Nine years after the game came out I completed Silent Hill. I saw all the endings (plus the UFO one) and played through once more with the hyperblaster.
Does this game show its age? Definitely. But it's like one of those grandpas that still know how to get out and dance and have fun. It's old and a little frustrating but still brings lots of fun and scares.
The play control is frustrating and can reduce your thumb to pulp if you're not careful. However, the graphics still look good and are detailed enough to get you to jump out of your seat a time or two (or more).
The music and sound is what really sends you over the edge. That doesn't age at all. It's a great soundtrack and the sound effects will have you looking over your shoulder at night or burying your head under the covers when you go to bed in fear of little demon children coming at you with gleaming knives.
This is a must for any video game collector, especially if you're into survival horror.
