"Silent Hill paraît jouer dans la même cour que Resident Evil mais en y regardant de plus près, il se différencie beaucoup par sa 3D intégrale. Un aspect qui comble les lacunes de RE tout en apportant de nouvelles options. Bref, c'est vraiment un très bon jeu car il prend le meilleur de Resident Evil tout en rectifiant ses défauts. Un sans faute."

"Silent Hill est un titre à ne pas mettre entre toutes les mains. Mélange d'angoisse et de mystère, la première tentative de Konami dans le secteur du survival horror est une réussite. Intégralement en 3D temps réel (à l'inverse de Resident Evil qui possède des décors précalculés), Silent Hill propose une expérience unique, mélange d'énigmes et d'action, le tout tapissé d'une ambiance baignant dans l'horreur. Ses quelques défauts techniques deviennent alors pardonnables..."

"Comment un jeu truffé d'énigmes bancales aux graphismes plutôt moyens parvient-il à dégager une ambiance aussi flippante?"

"With Resident Evil still lurking in the backs of some gamers' minds, Silent Hill may not be the right choice for those looking to blast their way through a zombie-filled town with a super grenade-launcher. But for any gamer searching out a solid, innovative title that succeeds in telling a wonderfully crafted story that appeals to the darker stuff of nightmares, Silent Hill cannot be beat. Go out and buy this game now."

"In the end though, Silent Hill is a truly magnificent work of art. Some Resident Evil fans may be turned off by the persistent 3D world and naturally slower-paced action and gameplay, but for anyone looking for a genuinely terrifying experience combined with a unique, gripping story and immersive atmosphere, this is the game for you."

"In the end, though, Konami's first entry in the horror genre - while not quite up to the mark of Capcom's Resident Evil 2 - is a great beginning. Let's hope we've seen the start of a new franchise by the company, because this would be an excellent starting point."

"This is a very well done game and has convinced me that with the release of Metal Gear Solid and now Silent Hill, Konami is really on a roll with their 3rd person games. With the Playstation entering what could very well be its last formidable year in the console business, it's refreshing to see games of this caliber getting released. Silent Hill's a keeper and deserves a spot in your Playstation library."

"If you thought that "Resident Evil" was scary, well let me just tell you Resident Evil is akin to Disney's Bambi compared to this... If you want a game that will surely help you soil your undies kids, than Silent Hill is what you want!"
