This is where my Silent Hill obsession first began. The graphics are, even by today's standards, great. The dialogue is sometimes awkwardly delivered, but overall the acting is very good. I found the combat to be very easy for a casual gamer while still being somewhat challenging. The puzzles are varied and unique, requiring one to remember poems, fairy tales and how to read an analogue clock. The story was well written and kept me playing for hours, even when I ended up wandering lost for a good deal of time. Hidden symbols are fun finds, especially on your second, fourth or seventh time through. The music is top-notch, as is to be expected from Akira Yamaoka, really punctuating the important segments of the game and leaving deep imprints of these scenes in one's memory. Even now, I find myself straying back to my favorite misty vacation spot for some time with my favorite disturbed accountant and neglect today's newer, shinier games.
