"The Room clôt donc la série d'une bien belle façon et si vous entendez quelques esprits malins hurler contre la perle noire de Konami, ne reculez pas, prenez votre courage à deux mains, préparez-vous à façonner la réalité à votre convenance et rentrez de plain-pied dans une obscurité si... reposante."

"Silent Hill 4 : The Room empruntait la voie de ses illustres aînés, mais il s'est perdu en route, la faute à un game design incroyablement lourdingue qui montre ses limites dans la deuxième partie du jeu. [...] Le charme agit encore, pourtant, grâce à un travail esthétique sans fausse note, qui contribue une nouvelle fois à une ambiance d'exception, et surtout un scénario palpitant, qui a le mérite de nous sortir de la bourgade de Silent Hill sans vraiment la quitter. Mais après la peur, le stress et l'angoisse, Silent Hill 4 ajoute à l'éventail de ses émotions un nouveau sentiment : la déception."

"Ce quatrième volet montre un essoufflement de la série du à un flagrant manque de punch et à une ambiance moins réussie que précédemment. Les fans de la série seront déçus par cette absence de fraîcheur mais trouveront quand même un bon titre pourvu d´une réalisation solide et d´une réputation qui n´est plus à faire."

"Renouant avec l’horreur tout en laissant la ville de Silent Hill en arrière-plan, The Room demeure avant toute chose une réflexion sur la claustrophobie, sur la solitude et le voyeurisme qui comblera avec certitude tous les fans de Survival-horror."

"Le scénario à rebondissements, la mise en scène et la qualité globale de cette réalisation font qu’on a du mal à lâcher le pad une fois la partie commencée."

8/10
"In all, as a survival-horror game, it's a solid fight-fest that newbies and diehard fans will enjoy. Or at least some will. Those on the fence won't be attracted, and those hoping for something new are due to experience a decent, but not great, addition to the series."



Eurogamer
6/10
"As a spin-off, standalone game it's not a bad one, but to judge it alongside the other Silent Hill games it pales by comparison. Fans of the series won't be devastated by The Room, but they'll definitely wonder what went wrong."

"As a fan of the series, I couldn't help but appreciate Konami's attempt to change up the formula. If these changes lead to an evolved series, then I'm all for it. By the time the fourth installment was in development, many wondered if they would get stale. While The Room exhibits some growing pains, it's sure a nice step in the right direction."



Gamespot
7.9/10
"Silent Hill 4: The Room is an interesting sequel that attempts to branch out in several areas of gameplay and setting while remaining true to the psychological thriller-style that's always set the Silent Hill series apart from more action-oriented scares. [...] If you're an existing horror fan or a Silent Hill fan, Silent Hill 4: The Room is certainly worth looking at--if not for purchase, at the very least for rental."

"Though it follows the same old formula pretty closely, Silent Hill 4: The Room is a worthy sequel. The contrast between your deranged nightmare apartment and the seemingly normal world outside gives it an especially tense feeling of psychological terror and uncertainty. I wouldn't mind being locked in my apartment for the weekend with Silent Hill 4."



GameSpy
4/5
"When all's said and done, I'd have to say that overall I enjoyed Silent Hill 4: The Room just as much as the previous games. Although the initially slower pace and more non-conventional puzzles might annoy some gamers, those who hang in there are in for a hellish treat well worthy of the creepy Silent Hill brand."

"Konami thinks you've still got more excretion hidden somewhere. They've designed this fourth Silent Hill specifically for that purpose."



Worth Playing
8.7/10
"All in all this is one of the most enjoyable Survival Horror game to date. The pedestrian gameplay is overcome by the incredible visuals and audio. The story is also the best of all the SH games to date. It’s hard to turn it off because you want to know what’s going on and what will happen next."



Game Over

"Silent Hill 4 is still a damned scary game, and it's one of the better survival horror titles out there because of that. It's good to see its designers taking risks and experimenting with the formula. This time, however, it's kind of a misfire. It's by no means a failure, but it's not a success, either."



Lunabean
8.3/10
"If Survival Horror is your genre then you know that "Silent Hill" and "Resident Evil" are the two go-to games. "Silent Hill 4" continues this tradition with a solid, fun, and of course, disturbing experience."
