Silent Hill 4: The Room – Review

By the time we arrive at Konami's latest installment, Silent Hill 4: The Room, the series doesn't even take place in Silent Hill anymore…players spend the game in the nearby town of Ashfield. Unfortunately, calling the game Ashfield 4: The Room probably wouldn't have inspired many sales as gamers the world over wondered what the hell ever happened to Ashfield 1-3…it's like that whole Bill Cosby/Leonard Part 6 mess, and I think everyone learned their lesson on that one.

Game Description: Silent Hill 4: The Room offers a new cast and story, full of dark mysteries and horrendous new creatures. Henry Townshend is trapped in a cursed apartment.

Siren – Review

How many times has a game actually been horrifying? Not scary, not intense-not Resident Evil monsters jumping from off-camera at inopportune moments, and not Silent Hill running through a poorly-lit, blood-soaked wasteland-but actually horrifying?

Siren – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Blood and Gore, Intense Violence

Siren

Game Description: Siren is a new kind of horror game, sure to raise goosebumps with its aura of suspense & fear. In a remote Japanese fishing village, there is a terrible earthquake, and a mysterious siren blares. The next morning, the village is isolated by a sea of blood. Out of this sea crawl the former residents of the town—now transformed into hideous zombies. A few have not been changed - lead them off the island to safety at all costs. Players have the unique power to see through the eyes of the undead, for a new level of strategy and terror—try not to jump when you switch views and see the undead sneaking up right behind you!

Fatal Frame 2: Crimson Butterfly Second Opinion

Fatal Frame 2: Crimson Butterfly Screenshot

I agree with Mike in finding that Fatal Frame 2: Crimson Butterfly is one of the scariest, most unsettling game experiences around but only when I wasn't being bored out of my mind by the game's busywork and glacial pace. I do share our horror maven's sadness at seeing such a promising title go astray, but I'm not quite as forgiving as he is.

Manhunt – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Blood and Gore, Intense Violence, Strong Language

Legacy of Kain: Defiance – Second Opinion

I was primarily disappointed with Legacy of Kain: Defiance for reasons that Brad lights upon. For me, the game fatally stumbles where it fails to demonstrate any meaningful improvement over its prequels. Despite our general agreement about gameplay however, Brad does gloss over what I felt was a notable triumph—the game's compelling gothic landscape.

Resident Evil: Dead Aim

Game Description: Join anti-Umbrella search and pursuit team agent, Bruce MacGavin, as he encounters a new layer of Umbrella's insidious activities. In this all-new Resident Evil first-person action-shooter, you must search, sneak and use battle moves to regain control of a sea-jacked cruise ship lost in the Atlantic. And should you find yourself trapped amongst hordes of zombies and mutant beasts, your aim better be dead on or you're gone!
