With the Silent Hill series famed for its unsettling blend of psychological and visceral horror, Silent Hill 4: The Room turns the screw even further. Taking the series in a new direction, apprehension and fear immediately run high when the new main character, Henry Townshend, finds himself trapped in his own, cursed apartment.
Only by exploring mysterious portals leading into disturbing alternate worlds will Henry begin to uncover clues as to why he is trapped. However, in true Silent Hill fashion, mysterious new characters, horrendous creatures and the undead will use any means necessary to impede his progress. A tense atmosphere and grotesque enemies will keep the player on edge as Silent Hill 4: The Room delivers a gameplay experience that fans and newcomers will never forget.
Using all-new technology, the Tokyo-based development team has created a host of unique effects designed to add to the game's oppressive atmosphere. Players will notice changes in the environments as the alternate world begins to taint reality, while - in a massive first for the series - the action switches between the traditional third-person view and a new first-person perspective.
Beautifully designed environments, a haunting soundtrack and a roster of macabre and misshapen monsters contribute to one of the scariest games you will ever play, as players travel between Silent Hill 4: The Room's central location and their worst nightmares...
  • Suitable for 18 years and over. Not for sale to persons under age 18. By purchasing this product, you declare that you are 18 years of age and over.

With episode 4 of the Silent Hill Series things begin to dwindle from their usually lofty gaming standards. Moving away from the typical formula of finding yourself in the town of silent hill and left to explore, you now begin in a mysterious room (Hence the Sub Title) where you can neither go out or have people come in. The Room is of course possessed by the Silent Hills power and its not long before some truly creepy entities begin to appear on your walls.

Luckily your not in the Room for the whole game and when you find a eiree tunnel (with all too creepy sounds resonating from it) you just have to jump in dont you??? Honestly these people ought to know what their getting into.

Graphically the game is sound, Creepy, dark and often disturbing to behold SIlent Hill 4 doesn't hold anything back and whilst travelling through train stations, woodlands, prisons and of course the ever present hospital you learn more and more about the cursed room and its former inhabitant Walter Sullivan, a crazed Murderer who, Apparently, died many years back.

The Story itself is intense, presiduously spooky and coupled with a soundtrack that would fend off the most demon haunted beasts. The only problem, aside from the ghosts that JUST WILL NOT DIE, is the repetitive nature of the game. The first half is new and exciting to play through, however once you have beaten the hospital and have to be followed around by your stupid neighbour you go through all the areas again with no new surprises. Well except the very live Walter Sullivan following you throughout to provide just that little bit more tension.

With multiple endings (once again) the game is immersive and interesting but falls short of its 3 superior preddecessors by being just that little too linear and not quite as interesting as the first.

As a side note this is the first of the Silent Hill games to Carry an 18 Certificate and even a warning label on the back of the box for those of a nervous Disposition. Although this made me laugh it highlights another notable flaw in the game. It is just a little too much, the story and events are darker than ever, and the graphics perfectly highlight the gritty areas you travel through. Being disturbing in the extreme can only carry for so long and when a burning victim carves numbers into his chest you feel just a little put off this horror story.

Unlike Silent Hills before it this is darker, grittier and much more disturbing than before, all things that (in this case) should be cause to recommend, only serve to lessen the games appeal.

Urrgh...pick it up for cheap.

 What's the gripe with Silent Hill 4?

I will be honest, I LOVE this game. There are moments in this game that I consider to be some the most chilling moments in the series. I love the storyline, the setting, the characters, and the monsters, including the unkillable flying zombie mush people. Dammit, I love everything down to the loading screens. There is not a damn thing wrong with this game, it's claustrophobic, scary, mysterious and well thought out. And is over all another winner from Konami.

It's nowhere near Silent Hill 2 of course, which is probably the greatest game ever, and definitely the greatest survival horror ever, but fortunately, it's not trying to be another SH2 and I rate this just as highly as SH3, I think they really hit the mark, for the fourth time in a row.

An acquired taste I must admit, very different to the others, but overall, I think it's great. So there.

 Truely Terrifying!

I don't know why people think this game is so rubbish. I was glued to it for hours. It stands out amongst the other Silent Hill games and for a good reason. The graphics are amazing, the monsters are horrific yet memorable. This would be one of many reasons why ps2 is still in there with the xbox 360 and ps3. The only reason i didn't give this 5 stars is purely because you do kinda get sick of crawling through that bloody hole all the time. Surely he'd ache a bit. AND when you get a hole next to the washer later on in the game instead of the bathroom and you spend a lot of times walking into the bathroom wall =]

 a decent horror game but slips behind its predesessors

Silent hill 1,2 and 3 where great games for many reasons.the story,graphics,sound and atmosphere.However this forth installment takes a drastic turn in terms of gameplay.it has a terrific storyline but the gameplay is bland to say the least.you have to return to Henry's apartment every time you want to save and put away items.this repeated back and forth from his flat to the other world is annoying and quite tedious.also the levels feel extremely linear compared to the previous games.you go through several ares which have little more than a health drink or a key item.the main problem is that this game was never meant to be called silent hill 4.it was meant as a spin off game.the story actually has little to do with the town except for mentions of it and a few links to characters.you never actually set foot in the town.the title of the game should not have been silent hill.this is why i rate it 3.it is still a great horror game but should not be part of the silent hill collection.

I'll keep this short, this game is bad. It has a weak story line, has nothing to do with Silent Hill (as it was originally made to be a different game, but at the last moment, Konami decided to make this a Silent Hill brand game), and as a result, the entire feeling of the game, is just somewhere completely different then Silent Hill.

The concept is good though, but poorly executed. you are a man trapped in your house, you have to crawl through a hole in the wall, to reach the outside world, and once you do that, you see that everything is demonic and evil. You'll have to get through all these levels, to find a way out of your house. Nice concept. But the fault lies in the level design, the monster design, the poor graphics, and abysmal gameplay. j

The game is playable, but only once, and after that, you'll probably never touch it again, in your life.

Only buy this if you collect Silent Hill games, and want that 4th one to be a member of your collection, otherwise, avoid.
