Silent Hill 3

''Silent Hill 3''}} is a survival horror video game developed by Team Silent, a production group within Konami Computer Entertainment Tokyo, and published by Konami for the PlayStation 2. The third installment in the ''Silent Hill'' series and a direct sequel to the first ''Silent Hill'' game, it follows Heather, a teenager who becomes entangled in the machinations of the town's cult, which seeks to revive a malevolent deity. It was released in May 2003, with a port to Microsoft Windows released in October of the same year. A remastered high-definition version was released as part of the ''Silent Hill HD Collection'' (2012), for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Originally planned to be a rail shooter, as a result of the initially slow sales of ''Silent Hill 2'' in Japan, ''Silent Hill 3'' was developed almost simultaneously alongside another installment in the series, ''Silent Hill 4: The Room'' (2004). Among the influences on ''Silent Hill 3'' are the film ''Jacob's Ladder'' and the works of horror novelist Stephen King. ''Silent Hill 3'' sold more than 300,000 copies by November 2003 and was critically successful, garnering praise for its presentation, including the environments, graphics and audio, as well as the overall horror elements and themes that are continued from past installments; there also were minor criticism of the game's short length and gameplay mechanics. Its plot was loosely adapted into the 2012 film ''Silent Hill: Revelation 3D''. Provided by Wikipedia
