What It's About
As with just about everything else in popular culture the last few years, publisher Konami and developer Climax looked at the Silent Hill franchise and decided it was time for a reboot. We return to the deserted lakeside town and to the first game's protagonist, Harry Mason. Following a car crash, Harry has lost track of his 7-year-old daughter, Cheryl, and must venture into the town to find her.
That's right about where the similarities to the original game end. This is hardly a mere graphical upgrade to the original Silent Hill. It's a reimagining of the original story, turning what was once a simple search for a child and encounter with the occult into a complicated psychological tale of loss and memories.
