Here’s the bottom line if you don’t have time to read the full review:

The Bottom Line


  • Fantastic, tense, and terrifying atmosphere.
  • Great and believable characters.
  • Wonderfully told story.
  • Great puzzles.
  • Unlockable costumes.


  • A sometimes unfair and frustrating challenge.
  • The removal of a robust ending system.
  • Trains.

Final Score: 9.5/10

It really is so close to being a best game ever. If it weren’t for those minor frustrations, I really think it would be on that list. And for the record, the List is fluid. Maybe in a future playthrough, SH3 will land on that list.
