Silent Hill: The Arcade – Found & Played

So I made the 2 hour journey across London today to check out Silent Hill: The Arcade, and you maybe wondering was it worth it?

The answer to that would be a definite yes. There isn’t much not to like about this game, cool looking cabinet, the guns had a good feel to them, and the atmosphere the game creates is as tense as an arcade game can get. Although that would have been a lot better if they had put a roof over the cabinet, which I presume is included, but just wasn’t fitted in this instance.

Gameplay wise it’s pretty damn good. The best way to describe it would be to take HOTD, slow it down a bit, suck the colour out of it, in a good way, and throw in some even creepier enemies to blast down. Highlights would include the satisfying sound you get when you make a head shot, which is highly recommended, the second chapter where all the walls look like they are bleeding/on fire, and the boss battle I had with a rather scary fellow who has a big triangle metal head (Sorry I haven’t played the console version much, feel free to let me know his name).

Check out the pictures and put a note in your diaries to come back tomorrow for the video I took!

    Pyramid head is the name of the guy you are talking about as the boss character. 😉
