Silent Hill: Origins (PSP)
This game is proof that horror games on a small screen can be scary too. Last night after playing this game, I had a nightmare of sorts with creepy shadowy creatures that stumbled about in dirty abandoned rooms. Freaky.
The graphics are excellent, rather dark but adjustable so that you can play it well enough in a lit room. Of course, if you want to get the best scares, play this game in the dark with headphones on. The musical score is just great with its metallic sounds, low growling sounds and mad-whispering type effects.
I don't think there's any other title of this sort (horror-survival) for the PSP. I wish they would make more of type of games. Fatal Frame might make a good portable horror.
