Silent Hill 3

The structure of Silent Hill 3 has been left almost completely intact from the first and second game. You explore a closed environment for clues, keys, notes, or anything else that might help you get to the next section. Along the way you'll encounter a multitude of monsters--some that creep slowly toward you and others that may fly or run quickly at you--and each is notably horrific in its own right. You'll fight them off with a variety of different weapons, including both melee weapons and firearms, and this is where the gameplay has changed significantly. In past games it was relatively easy to fight off every single monster. However, in Silent Hill 3 you may find yourself barely scraping by with a minimum amount of ammunition and health supplies to stay alive, so running instead of fighting will often be the preferred method of survival. As you take damage, you'll heal yourself with energy drinks and first-aid kits, and you'll also have packets of beef jerky, which you can use to bait monsters so you can quietly slip past them. Once again you'll have your map of each area, where you will take notes, mark doors that are locked or broken, and jot down clues for puzzles to aid you in their solution.

All in all, Silent Hill 3 is an excellent addition to the series. Its story is tied into the story of the first game and keeps a number of themes and locales from the second game well in focus. There's no remarkable new gameplay to speak of, so the game is clearly intended for fans of the series, who've been impressed over the years by Silent Hill's unusually dark and psychological style. This new game will be familiar to them in many ways, and the story, the characters, and the visuals add up to make Silent Hill 3 a worthy successor.
