I'm pretty happy about the game, overall. I just have a couple of minor complaints, and I guess it's just me.
Oh it's not just you. This game is being torn apart critically, so it's safe to say that you share a popular opinion so far. But at least you're giving it the shot that it deserves.

That fucking sidequest nearly gave me a heart attack which is appropriate. I got stuck in the dark maze surrounded by crap and it was making me way too tense. Glad I'm done with it and never have to touch it again. Still giving my props to the movie theatre sidequest as a fun and interesting idea.
I am now officially done with the game and have nabbed two of the endings so far. I have mixed feelings about the final portion of the game, but am certainly pleased with the overall experience. I personally think that it peaks at the monastery, but to each their own.
SUPER OMEGA SPOILERS SORTA - READ WHEN YOU FINISH THE GAME BITCHI'm specifically not too pleased with the final segment where you get to play as the "bogeyman." This section makes you this all powerful badass, but manages to make you feel like a frustrated helpless dude because you can't move or swing your weapon fast enough. What should have been a badass climax where you wreck everyone's shit in a fun over the top way is turned into this cat and mouse chase where the cat is a boulder covered in super glue on a floor of molasses. This is a moment that a fan should look forward to doing again for the endings, not groan in agony at the thought of it. Great idea, poor execution. Just make sure you manage to catch up and hit the mouse, or you'll get the shitty shit ending.
So now that I'm done with it I'm officially sticking by my assessment that this is the best SH since 3. Though I never did play Shattered Memories...I should look into emulating the Wii version on PC with mouse control instead of the waggle. As a fan of Silent Hill and Clock Tower, I probably really need to consider doing this. Anyways, I'm looking forward to the next podcast. Hopefully we get a little bit of Silent Hill with some thoughts on Sine Mora as well!
