* SoOkayItsAverage: The game ''does'' have it's fans for bringing something so different to the franchise and for being the last game developed by Team Silent. The most consistent complaints tend to revolve around the lengthy escort missions and frustrating inventory system but this is evened out by its unique story and how it fleshes out lore connected to ''VideoGame/SilentHill2''. It also does help that this game isn't ''as polarizing'' as two [[VideoGame/SilentHillHomecoming other]] [[VideoGame/SilentHillDownpour games]].
** Henry, once universally detested as the weakest Silent Hill protagonist, managed to retroactively become tolerable or at least not ''as'' hated as before. Unlike Harry, Heather, and ''especially'' James, Henry not only had no connection to the story outside of just happening to live in Room 302, his personality was also extremely unengaging to the point that his [[DullSurprise reactions]] would often spoil a scene. But then the sequels tried to live up to the original games' legacy (particularly two and three) by making every protagonist have a tragic backstory often repressed by guilt that they became shallow ripoffs. Suddenly, Henry's simple motivation to just get out of his apartment was very refreshing.

** Henry in particularly is also considered an average character and isn't ''as'' hated as before. Unlike Harry, Heather, and ''especially'' James, Henry not only had no connection to the story outside of just happening to live in Room 302, his personality was also extremely unengaging to the point that his [[DullSurprise reactions]] would often spoil a scene. But then the sequels tried matching the more popular entries by making every protagonist have a tragic backstory often repressed by guilt to the point of Narm.

** Henry in particularly is also considered an average character and isn't ''as'' hated as before, considering that unlike Harry, Heather, and ''especially'' James, Henry doesn't specifically have any past sins or regrets, just that he's reclusive. Granted [[spoiler: the ending implies he's becoming more open and arguably is going to start a friendship/relationship with Eileen]], but again, unlike the last three protagonist of the series before the game, Henry was just an average guy, who was at the wrong place at the wrong time.

* TheScrappy: Henry is disliked for coming off as dull, unemotional and being [[FlatCharacter lacking in character development]] compared to silent hill protagonists before or since. Spouting many of the game's dumber lines certainly contributes.

** Those double-headed baby ''things''. As if their appearances weren't already creepy enough, when you first seem them, they're pointing right at you! One of the scariest parts of the game, in fact, is having to face a grand total of ''six'' of them, all at once, in a long corridor! Thankfully, Eileen is with you at this point to help you take them on, but seeing them blocking your way and pointing at you from afar is truly the stuff of nightmares.
