Silent Hero Review

        Although Silent Hill doesn't live up to the Resident Evil series, it sure
does deliver a punch to the player. Along with amazing graphics and top notch
mesh fog effects, Silent Hill will scare you out of your pants.
 

           As you start off, Harry Mason and his daughter Cheryl are taking
a quite little vacation to the resort town of Silent Hill. On the way, they encounter
a unkown person aprroaching at a high rate of speed on a moter bike. About
500 feet up the road, Harry catches a glimpse of a shadow standing in the road,
and makes a sharp turn to avoid it. Crashing his jeep along with Cheryl into a
fence. When Harry wakes up, he finds that Cheryl is missing and is off to find his
little daughter.

           To get to the bad points first, the graphics could be alot better,
also the control could use some tunning. There are alot of glitches especially
when your running down the street and are being chased by a hord of evil-demons.
The auto aim that Harry has is also good, except making a 360 degree turn around
to kill two evil nurses that are tag teaming you is guite difficult.

            Also, there is a slowdown in the engine, it is the last major flaw
in Silent Hill. You will know what I'm talking about if you have accomplished the
game two or three times. Since Silent Hill is more based on the horror genre
than action like RE2, there is limited ammo. So that means you have to reserve
ammunition. Lets get to the point, when you are being chased down the street
by 7 devilish creatures (3 demon children, 2 flying demons, & 2 gorilla man),
you cannot expect to turn around and pull out your gun and kill every one.

            If you have also ever read Stephen King's "THE MYST", you know
how scary it is to only see three feet in front of you in 2 mile long fog.
In conclusion, Silent Hill is more attached to the Horror/Adventure genre which makes
many people happy. Although the story line doesn't make up the real hype in
the game, it truely is one of the best in 1999. I just hope Konami will
make a better sequel!


Silent Hill
 
 

Defeating Alessa
In the last stage, Alessa will use lightning bolts to hit you. To avoid this attack, just press Forward+Left or Right and Run!
Harry will keep running in circles. After tow or three circles you may stop and start shooting her. When she starts another
round of lightning just stop shooting and run again.

Ending Bonuses
There are four endings to Silent Hill, each with its own set of bonuses.

     BAD ENDING- Prizes: Gas tank, Chainsaw, Rock Drill.
     The Gas tank is found in the gas station. It is used to power the other two prizes, but only one of the two weapons can
     be taken. The rock drill is in the room under the drawbridge control room. It's not very good.

     The Chainsaw is in the smashed window of cut-rite chainsaws, and is a lot better than the rock drill. These two weapons
     are useful against slow ground enemies, but the hammer works better, and you don't need to beat the game to get it.

     BAD+ ENDING- Prize: Katana.
     This is found in the previously locked room in the Dog House on Levin Road. It WAILS any slow moving enemies, and
     you lunge forward with every stroke. Hold the circle button for an overhead blow, and tap twice for a double slash. You
     can perform a 3-hit combo by holding the circle for the first hit, then rapidly pressing it.

     GOOD ENDING- Prize: Hyperblaster
     This gun is just plain cool. It's mega-powerful and has an unlimited supply of ammo.

     GOOD+ ENDING- Prize: Channeling Stone.
     Found in the convenience store. Who knows what it does or where to use it.

Extra Health Drinks in the Hospital
For three health drinks, search the wrecked Drink-Machine in the first floor of the hospital.

Extra Options
During game play, hit the select button to bring up the Item screen, then go to Options. Once you're in, push L1,R1,L2,R2 all at
the same time. If done correctly, it opens a small menu where you can change the color of the blood, reverse some of the
controls, and turn off auto-aim, if you feel like making it harder on yourself.
