Silent Hill 4: The Room tells a story as surreal as it is disturbing. Players take the first-person role of an unfortunate man named Henry Townsend, but unlike earlier games in the survival-horror series, they will not explore a strange rural area or deserted small town. Instead, they will find themselves completely trapped in Henry's small apartment. After days alone, confined, Henry starts to notice strange holes — apparent breeches in time and space — that have begun to appear in his bathroom. Is he just going stir-crazy, or are these weird gaps really his only hope of escape?
Passing through these supernatural portals transports Henry to strange, dangerous places, where players guide him from a third-person perspective to accommodate the more action-oriented challenges he'll face. He'll also face a number of puzzles, intended to challenge even veterans of the earlier Silent Hill adventures. Like its predecessors, however, The Room was designed to present a truly disturbing atmosphere, using subtle inconsistencies and a slowly building tension, instead of just sudden shocks and cheap scares, to chill its players to the bone. ~ T.J.
