Silent Hill 4: The Room is the fourth installment in the Konami Silent Hill survival horror series. The game was released in Japan in June 2004 and in North America and Europe in September of that same...
Henry Townshend finds himself trapped in his own cursed apartment. Only by exploring mysterious portals leading to disturbing alternate worlds will Henry begin to uncover clues as to why he is trapped. Such is the premise of Silent Hill 4 The Room, a more action-focused entry into Konami's survival horror series. Features include a higher number of weapons and enemies than previous games in the series, changes to the environment in real time, shifts between the first- and third-person perspective, and various visual and control upgrades to the Silent Hill 3 engine. Levels include a forest, a prison and a hotel. Also available for PlayStation 2 and Microsoft Xbox.
Just make sure you bring along your dual analog gamepad to ensure that all your terror is generated from the cursed setting--and not from the controls.
For real, genuine scares, this does not disappoint.
You expect to be scared, and you will be scared, but the freakishness, the undertones of distress and uncomfortable wreathing of characters that merge lamps and mannequins, replaced now by raging wheelchairs and insignificant ape-things, just don't scare
