"Not only does Perron analyze the terrain of an important and well-known cross-media franchise that is game-centered, he also does it from a player-centric point of view. This is a book emblematic of a maturation of game studies and will be of interest not just to game scholars but also to those engaging academically with transmedial articulations of the conventions and reinventions of horror."
--Tanya Krzywinska, Brunel University, United Kingdom
"This book combines a robust structure with outstanding fine-grained analysis of the individual games. I was impressed by how sure-footedly Bernard Perron negotiates the plot twists and turns, and charts the many influences on the games. I know these games quite well, yet I continually learned new things."
--Simon Niedenthal, Malmoe University, Sweden
"Definitely worth reading for hardcore fans of the series."
"Silent Hill: The Terror Engine is a text that all Silent Hill fans - and many who are simply fans of the horror genre - will want to have on their bookshelves. ... reading this book will bring a whole new level to your experience with Silent Hill."
