* VisualEffectsOfAwesome: For a PS2 game the visuals of this game is both excellent and horrifying, allowing for very memorable and detailed Otherworld locations and overlay effects on both enemies and the scenery. The character models have also improved from VideoGame/SilentHill2, allowing for more expressive facial animations and detailed clothing and hair.

* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WDCktKqHBGQ "You're Not Here"]] in the [[AttractMode main-menu idle trailer]] sounds very similar to [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vdLuk2Agamk "New Year's Day"]] by Music/U2, albeit probably by coincidence.

** [[spoiler:Vincent's death]] is this as well. Yes, [[spoiler:he was a [[SinisterMinister greedy]], [[SmugSnake slimy]], [[MagnificentBastard slippery bastard]]; and [[AssholeVictim he deserved the end he got]]. [[SympathyForTheDevil Still, though...]]]]

** Heather receives a bizarre "Happy Birthday" call with a creepy tone to it and by the time it's finished, everything's on her mind is that the caller is wrong about her birthday date.

* ItWasHisSled: Good luck finding ''anyone'' who doesn't know that Heather and her father are [[spoiler:Cheryl and Harry Mason from the [[VideoGame/SilentHill1 first game]].]]

Added DiffLines:

** It may be that the game is not too short but rather oddly-paced: Heather takes [[SlowPacedBeginning nearly half of the game to find her motive]] for coming to Silent Hill, making the rest of the game seem short by comparison.
** This near-halfway point is also the point in the game when the "Revenge" (UFO) ending can be achieved on NewGamePlus, making the playthrough [[NoFinalBossForYou indeed very short]] -- though to achieve this ending [[DoubleUnlock necessitates]] [[ChainOfDeals jumping through a lot of hoops]] in that time, as well as [[DoubleUnlock in previous full playthroughs of the game]].

* HarsherInHindsight: Douglas' already bittersweet declaration "Nobody's gonna cry over my grave anyway," in response to the risk he is about to take, driving Heather to Silent Hill. His actor, Richard Grosse, died three months after completing his dialogue and two months before the game's initial release.

Added DiffLines:

* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WDCktKqHBGQ "You're Not Here"]], the opening theme. Harsh, discordant and unnerving, but a powerful and pulse-pounding piece of alt-rock all the same.
