Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (7 ):

If you're familiar with earlier Silent Hill games, you'll recognize most of the enemies, and amazingly, they look just as good -- and as scary -- on the PSP as they did on TV-based consoles. This includes the twisted bodies and faceless beasts that look like they've been wrapped in bloody cellophane.

Extraordinary graphics and a fantastic music soundtrack add to the immersive, albeit scary and creepy experience. This is not a game for the faint-hearted.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
