Title
Solid first entry to the Silent Hill legacy. Some of the puzzles are really obtuse to the point that I don't think anyone could be shamed for consulting GameFAQS along with it controlling very much like a PSX era fully 3D action game but everything else is pretty solid, including some of Harry's very dry commentary on examining background objects that will give you a sensible chuckle or two.

People will say go straight to Silent Hill 2 but I think you'd be missing out on a neat little overlooked gem.

    The one track for one of the bad endings is so unfitting lol Also that blooper high reel. Gotta love the presentation of Japanese games of the late 90s and early noughties

    Personally, I would say that this is just a tad better than the original Resident Evil. I think the puzzle-solving and setting interconnectivity is better in RE, maybe the story as well by a small margin, but this has the better atmosphere, soundtrack, and artstyle. It's also a LOT easier, which is nice since I suck at survival horror lol

    Enemy design in this game is pretty funny, especially when compared to symbolism of SH2. It's like someone opened up a zoo in a city and let all the animals run wild.

      True, seems like a nightmarish zoo

    one of the most viscerally horrifying parts of this game for me as a child (the first split lizard boss that can swallow Harry whole) has been neutralised a bit for me when I only recently noticed that when it clamps its jaws down on Harry, he actually just does his normal death animation where he falls to his knees and then on his face and says "oof". But only a bit because it still has those dreadful digestion sounds
