One of SH’s coolest features is its excellent Dual Shock support: The controller beats like a heart, thumping harder when you’re close to death, and its responsiveness keeps you in command.90GamePro
If you’re looking for a horror experience that will leave you shaking, Silent Hill is the game for you. It takes the horror genre to a whole new level of thrills and chills!90Hot Games
The various flaws (like horrible voice acting, odd attack control, and hyper-linear gameplay) keep it from earning a perfect rating. But it’s a worthy successor to “Resident Evil.”90Adrenaline Vault
A genuinely terrifying experience combined with a unique, gripping story and immersive atmosphere.90All Game Guide
The fog effect was really well done, creating an atmosphere of mystery and suspense. It was also great for hiding pop-ups and making the story more immersive.88GameShark
Enough creepiness to make Christopher Walken uncomfortable. [Jan 2004, p.189]86Electronic Gaming Monthly
Aside from the grainy graphics, imprecise controls and somewhat strange puzzles, this game is pure horror fun.85Gamezilla!
Go buy Silent Hill, pour yourself a strong drink, turn out all the lights, and immerse yourself in the sickness. It’s a hell of a lot better than going to see the latest Wes Craven movie.83Game Revolution
