    I would welcome criticism and especially help with it,
    of course you will be credited in full for that.
    
    Ok, the most important content is there. Still needs some proofreading 
    and spellchecking and tons of feedback to be perfect, but it's useable
    and even playtested. ^^
    
    
    Things that are still missing:
    - Ending Conditions
    - Extra Weapon Conditions
    - Uses for various Objects (talisman, perfume...)
    - The things I'm working on right now
    - Stuff I simply forgot

    ==========================================
    1. INTRODUCTION
    ==========================================
      Usually a walkthrough is something that gets you past an annoying little part 
      in a game, so you can play on happily. Just getting a passcode you need might 
      help you to get on with a game, but I thought it would be a nice thing to have 
      a guide that would help you in the same way a good buddy of yours would do, 
      that has already beaten the same game.
    
      In short: This Q/A-guide will not just supply you with the solutions but 
      instead get you back on the track with suggestions so you can get them 
      yourself.
    
           (For those still stuck there's the solutions to all riddles and a regular
           walkthrough, too, of course.)
    
    
    ABOUT THE DIRECTIONS GIVEN IN THIS FAQ:
    
      Directions given refer to the position of your character, not yours. For 
      example: 'Take the door to your left' means to take the door on the left side 
      of your CHARACTER, not the left side of the screen.
    
      'Take the door to the north' on the other hand refers (naturally) to the 
      position on the map. All set? Good. ^^
    
    
    
    ==========================================

       and turn around before you turn the doorknob. That way all you have
       to do is run forward to reach the rails which will save you the time
       for turning around. You might just have to run a little bit to the
       left so as to evade the first dog.

      you, for example: you don't get to gas the moth creatures, don't need to 
      painstakingly search for a screwdriver or have to read any tattoos on sweaty 
      feet. Just ignore the hints for the other modes. ^^

    - Locations also start with capital letters to help find them faster.

      [] stands for hard action mode
      The easy mode is not yet covered, just expect to find the same number
      of items as in normal mode and feel happy when there's more for you. ^^

      stairs and enter the subway train. Get the SHOTGUN and SHOTGUN SHELLS 
      (2x)[2x]. Go down one more flight of steps. Run along the hallway and go down 
      to Platform 3 (Bergen Street). If you are a person that prefers safety, go 
      right, unlock the door and shoot all the dogs there. If you're the sort that 
      never buckles up when driving, go to the end of the platform.
    
      You'll see a door from there. Approach it, turn the door knob and be quick 
      about getting away again. Climb back up on the platform. Go straight down the 
      platform all the way and board the subway. Don't forget to pick up that HEALTH

      This is some sort of labyrinth for beginners. Some of the fences blocking your 
      path will stay the way they are, others will come out of the ceiling and the 
      third kind will go back into it.
    
      Here is a brief description of the way. 
      
      1st labyrinthian room: 
      straight. right. right. left. straight, left.

      in north-eastern direction. If you are disappointed that SH3 doesn't offer you 
      more possibilities to actually explore Silent Hill, I know what you're 
      feeling.
    
    __________________________________________
    AMUSEMENT PARK:
    __________________________________________
      Having a deja  vu? This is indeed the Amusement Park from earlier. Not much 
      has changed aside from the fact that it is now crawling with monsters worse 
      than ever. So don't waste time, go directly to the Souvenir Shop. Gather up 
      the items there. Get a shock and turn around to find that some chocolate boxes 
      have fallen from the shelves. Get the ROLLER COASTER KEY from one of the boxes 
      and save, if you feel like it. Don't leave that AMPOULE(1x)[1x], HANDGUN 
      BULLETS(2x)[2x] and BEEF JERKY(1x)[1x] behind. Proceed as before to the

      coaster control cabin and turn off the power. Also take those two HEALTH 
      DRINKS(2x)[1x] at the far end of the room with you Head down the roller

      like that. 
    
      Watch the cutscene, then head inside the Haunted Mansion. Enjoy the scenery. 
      If the ceiling is giving you any trouble, go into caution mode (R2) and walk 
      forward. The spikes won't spear you anymore. Take the bullet vest off before 
      you go through the door marked with 'exit'. Run like hell. Run past the first 
      door, (it's locked) until you arrive at one with a couple of steps in front of 
      it. Be quick with that doorknob. It's not yet time to take a breather. Run on 
      some more. The hallways layout is almost the same as the prior one, so no need 
      to worry. Hooray, you're out again.
    
      And there's a great flock of monsters to welcome you, too. Head straight and 
      then left towards that green fence. Take that passage. Head straight again and 
      take the first left there is. Go through that greenish gate. Once again, avoid 
      all monsters and just run straight and through that gate. Get one HEALTH 
      DRINK(1x)[0x] and SHOTGUN SHELLS (1x)[1x] to your left, don't forget the red 
      shoe that lies on top of the stage. Also take the chain with you. Read the 
      mascot signs on the walls for a good laugh. Head back through the greenish 
      gate, go straight and then right onto that SWING ROCKET-spaceship-go-round 
      platform. Connect the chain to the pipe sticking out from the center column, 
      then go over to the gate and connect it there, too. (In case you're wondering, 
      it is still in your inventory.) Go inside the control booth, pick up the 
      HANDGUN BULLETS (1x)[1x] and turn the power on. You should be able to do that 
      with more than just one door. ^^

      Get Douglas' notebook. Pick up the DOLL HEAD. Save if you need to. Head into

      Get the EYE OF THE NIGHT TAROT CARD. Save if you need to. Prepare for the most 
      disturbing level in the entire game. Head right to get the map hanging on the 
      wall. Enter the confession box. You'll have to make a choice here. 
           a - Forgive Claudia 
           b - Say nothing
    
      The choice you make here will slightly influence your endings. Go down the 
      hallway. The far door is locked, so take the other one to the east, go through 
      that room. Try to avoid the two Insane Cancers in front of the doors and go 
      through the northern one first. Head all the way down the hallway. In the 
      middle, you'll hear crying and footsteps. Look around and follow the footsteps 
      on the floor, then push that painting aside. Don't go inside yet. That's the 
      biggest savepoint you'll ever find. Save if you need to, look at the pictures 
      and go back. Look at the wheelchair, then go through the door that was hidden 
      behind the painting.
    
      Head down the hallway. Got to the far end of it. You'll find yourself in a 
      library. Read the books in there if you're interested in some background. Get 
      THE MOON TAROT CARD from the desk at the end of the room. Watch the cutscene. 
      Get back out and take the elevator downstairs (right opposite of the door you 
      came into this room the first time.)
    
      Go right and take that door, then go all the way straight. You'll be in a sort 
      of human wastedump. Get THE HANGED MAN TAROT CARD. Also get the two packs of 
      SHOTSHELLS(2x)[2x]. They will come in handy soon. Exit that room and go right. 
      Enter the door at the end of the hallway. You are now in Harry's room... get 
      the STUN GUN BATTERIES (2x)[2x] and read the diary on the bed. Back in the 
      elevator room. Head west and enter the second last door. Go down that hallway 
      all the way. You're in a Child's Room. Examine the sketchbook on the bed, the 
      door and the notepad on the table. Then get the BRASS KEY from the wall. Save 
      if you feel like it. Leave this room again and go back to where you came from.
    
      On your way, enter the last door on the right (the one after you cross that 
      bridge from which you can see bobble head doing something... strange). Let 
      those monsters play with themselves and proceed straight through. Listen to 
      the sounds in the hallway. Follow the footsteps on the floor and open the 
      hidden door. Proceed to the next room. Examine the bed. Get an AMPOULE 
      (1x)[2x] HAND GUN AMMO (3x)[2x] and THE FOOL TAROT CARD. Leave this ghastly 
      place. Go back up with the elevator.
    
      Visit the last room on the map you haven't visited (the one with the two 
      insane cancers in front) and get the CASSETTE TAPE and HANDGUN BULLETS (2x)[]. 
      Use the brass key on the door near the Confession Booth that was previously 
      locked. Take the first door on your left. You're in a Classroom. If you have 
      played SH1, check the table. If you haven't, do it anyway. Read K. Gordon's 
      notebook. Another old companion. ^^ Leave the room. Go straight a bit and 
      enter the next door to your right. You're in a Room with a Cassette Deck. Use 
      the CASSETTE TAPE. Read the letters on the table. Leave. Do NOT enter the room 
      you are facing right now unless you are masochistic. Turn right instead and 
      enter the righthand side door. This is Claudia's Room. Read the Diary, the 
      card on the desk and pick up the HIGH PRIESTESS TAROT CARD from the bed. We're 
      all set then, so let's go back to the Child's Room. Solve the Tarot Card 
      Puzzle on the door and proceed down that hallway. Watch the cutscene. I'm not 
      quite sure about some endings, what you can do for certain is use the 
      AGLAOPHOTIS inside your NECKLACE. This will have nasty consequences for all 
      those involved. More to come soon.
    
    BOSS: THE GOD.

      How does this work?
      
     First, there's always the riddle location, items required, if any, where to 
     find the clues and what sort of riddle you are facing. Then there's two pieces 
     of general advice that should give you the right direction to face the puzzle. 
     This will be followed by questions you would ask somebody else when getting 
     stuck. To round the thing up in the end, there will be a complete and 
     (hopefully) comprehensible explanation on the interpretation of the puzzle with 
     its solution.

      Pick up the books.
    
      First thing: Examine the books.
    
      Second thing: Where might they have fallen from?
    
    
    =========================================
    Solution:
      Put the books back on the shelf. Duh. The code you receive is random, but it's 
      not actually difficult to get it, so who cares. On a second note, the code has 
      4 digits and all of them can be found on the books' backs. If you have only 
      found 3 numbers, please do NOT e-mail me with a code problem. Keep on looking 
      till you have found the fourth number. It's not a game glitch. Thank you.

    ITEMS NEEDED:

      Examine the Diary next to the door. Also examine the note on the blackboard.
    
      Press, move 2 right;
      press, move 1 up;
      press, move 2 down;
      press and the door shall open.
    
      First thing: You need a 4 digit code.
    
      Second Thing: Think graphical.
    
    =========================================
    Solution:
      Well, simple really. (Hence the name EASY mode.) The note gives you directions 
      on how to move on the keypad. If you have to move two numbers to the right, 
      the first number can only be in the leftmost column. (numbers 1,4,7)
    
      If your next move after that is 1 up, number 1 is out of the running. (4,7)
    
      If your third move is to go down two more, 7 is out, too.
    
      Hence, the first number is 4.
    
      Going on as told in the note, the combination is:
    
    (4 6 3 9)

      Fair is foul and Foul is Fair,

    =========================================
    Solution:
      Keep changing the books' order till you can read a number on their backs. 
      Enter this number into the keypad. Done. One of the numbers is very hard to 
      read as it is on one of the cracks between the books, so please stop mailing 
      me about it. The code has FOUR digits and you can find them ALL if you examine 
      the books closely.

     Read the note next to the door.
    
      The first is larger than the second.
      The second is twice the third.
      The third is smaller than the fourth.
      The fourth is half the first.
    
      Four of the numbers are not repeated,
      Three are not in the top row,
      Two are not in the right row.
      One of the numbers is the final key.
    
      Those of you that have played through Silent Hill 2 may have a déja vu at this 
      place. Or maybe you are just wondering why the hell they always lock that 
      patient wing door so tightly... Surely it must piss off the nurses to solve a 
      riddle every time they have to go in there to change a bedpan. ^^
    
      This simply is another keypad puzzle. (There must be a shop in Silent Hill 
      that specializes in fitting keypads to doors and writing cryptic riddles as 
      access codes... I think I ran across it somewhere on Sanders/Neely Street... 
      the THERE WAS A HOLE IN HERE. IT'S GONE NOW. COMPANY
      or something like that...).
    
      First thing: Math lessons do pay off occasionally.
    
      Second thing: Remember what you want to know.
    
    =========================================
    Solution:
      Equations - Ok, let's use what we hopefully learned in our invaluable math 
      lessons: variables. Numbers 1 to 4 are now just the letters a to d to avoid
      further confusion.
    
            a       >       b       ;
            b       =       2xc     ;
            c       <       d       ;
            d       =       a/2     ;
    
      Positioning - Well, four of the numbers are not repeated, that means there 
      must be at least 4 different keys to be pressed.
    
    1   2   3         1, 2 and 3 form the top row,
    
    4   5   6         3, 6 and 9 the right one.
    
    7   8   9
    
    
      If 2a equals d and 2c equals b, we have only a few limited possibilities: 12 
      24 36 48. Combined with the fact that a is greater than b and c is smaller 
      than d we only have four possibilities left. Now we apply the rest of 
      the positioning clues to it, and the solution to this riddle and the passcode 
      that will ensure your journey to continue reads thus:
    
    (8; 6; 3; 4)

      I'm not sure whether this is considered a riddle, anyway, I imagine it must be 
      more than frustrating getting stuck in this place, so here's how to get 
      unstuck. There is a tattooed body on a stretcher in some room, check out his 
      tattoo.
      
      It says something like: "The starting time is my key."
      
      Upon entering room M4 the alarm clock will go off. Shut that blasted 
      noisemaker up and read the time. Rewrite the time in a digital watch format. 
      Enter these four digits into the attaches case. Just try out the a.m. and p.m. 
      times.

     I'd like to thank KATANASOUL for pointing the plate out to me.
    
    
      First thing: take a good look around.
    
    Q:   I did, there's nothing but a bunch of beds with numbers
         and some dead people. How am I supposed to open that damn lock?!
    A:   Well, you are close. Take a closer look at the numbers.
    
    
    Q:   Ok, there's total disorder, but who cares. What are you on about?
    A:   Actually, there is a system. Try to be more attentive towards things
         as colors and surfaces.
    
    Q:   Enough already. Out with it, what's the answer.
    A:   Well, next to the lock there is a plate on the crematorium door with the 
         layout of the room on it. Roman numerals will show you which digit 
         corresponds to which bed. So the bed that stands on the field with the 
         roman number I will give you the first digit, the on position II the 
         second, and so on. The number is random, so I can't include it here. And 
         this all you need to know to open the lock.

      You might remember that door from your first visit on the Hill. And, yes, it's 
      locked again. But instead of getting the five uberholy items, you'll have to 
      gather five Tarot cards this time and then put them into the correct slots on 
      the door. Someone seems to have wanted to make sure that no one snuck out of 
      that room at night. ^^
    
    ITEMS NEEDED:
    TAROT CARD: The Moon
    TAROT CARD: The High Priestess
    TAROT CARD: The Fool
    TAROT CARD: The Hanged Man
    TAROT CARD: The Eye of Darkness
    
    Now the first thing you must know,
    Is that there's something in each row.
    But that is not the half of it:
    Three would be too hard to fit.
    
    The upside-down man under the ground,
    to his right, to his left there is no one around
    Leave him alone though his tears are profound.
    
    The moon is up, above the sky,
    Full or crescent, floating high.
    Twinkling light sits like a clown
    On the head of a crazy clown.
    
    Your excellency praying to God most high
    Do you think you can tell me why
    You always look up at the night sky?
    
    Do you have it now? You didn't forget?
    One major point you mustn't omit.
    And now at the last, before you take a whack
    Here's one more hint to help you keep on track.
    
    Scary and hateful that thing in the night
    Better be careful - it's not on your right!
    Turn to the left and you'll keep it in sight.
    
    First thing: All is here, this should be a piece of cake.
    
    Second thing: Smoking is hazardous to your health.
    
    =========================================
    Solution:
      Well, what we know is that every row contains AT LEAST one card, but AT MOST 2 
      cards.
    
      The upside-down man is the Hanged Man, he is under ground, in other words in 
      the last row. There is no one to his left or his right, so he is in the 
      middle.
    
      The Moon is floating high, so it is in the top row. It sits like a clown on 
      the head of some crazy clown. So The Fool must be right underneath it.
    
      Your Excellency means the High Priestess. She looks up at the night sky, so 
      The Moon must be above her. Since the Hanged Man blocks the entire lower row, 
      the Priestess must be in the middle row.
    
      The scary and hateful thing in the night is, of course, the EYE OF NIGHT. it's 
      not on the right, but on the left.
    
      With all these conditions, there is only two possible combinations left. The 
      one that will get you on is this one:
    
    EON     ooo      MOON
    
    HP      ooo      FOOL
    
    ooo      HM       ooo

      Go to the door in the western part of the shop. You'll find it's locked and 
      there's a keypad on it. On the right side of the door, there is a note. Read 
      it.
    
      The full text reads as follows:
    
    In here is a tragedy ---
    art thou player or audience?
    Be as it may, the end doth remain:
    all go on only toward death.
    
    The first word at thy left hand:
    a false lunacy, a madly dancing man.
    Hearing unhearable words, drawn
    to a beloved's grave --- and there,
    mayhap, true madness at last.
    
    As did this one playing at death, find true death at last.
    Killing a nameless lover, she pierced a heart rent by sorrow.
    
    Doth lie invite truth?
    Doth verity but wear the mask of falsehood?
    Ah, thou pityful, thou miserable ones.
    
    Still amidst lies, though the end cometh not, wherefore yearn for death?
    Will thou attend thy beloved? Truths and lies, life and death:
    a game of turning white to black and black to white.
    
    Is not a silence brimming with love more precious than flattery?
    A peaceful slumber preferred to a throne besmirched with blood?
    
    One vengeful man spilled blood for two;
    Two youths shed tears for three;
    Three witches disappeared thusly;
    And only the four keys remain.
    
    Ah but veryly...
    In here lies a tragedy.
    Art thou player or audience?
    there is something which cannot become a puppet of fate or an onlooker,
    peering into a cage.
    
    
      First thing: This riddle gives you the sequence in which to rearrange the 
                   books.
    
    
      Second thing: The roman numerals on the back of the books are the keycode.
    
    =========================================
    Solution:
      This particular riddle requires a little knowledge on Shakespeare. If you have 
      read one or two of those books and remember vaguely what happened, you should 
      be fine though.
    
      If you haven't read them but still want to find out without bothering to read 
      several hundred pages worth of text or worse, go to the theatre 5 times, go 
      here:

    Thanks to POGANIN for correcting my faulty interpretation of this toughy.
    
      Now, here's how the verses relate to the books, of course this is all just my 
      version, but it works out:
    
    1st VERSE:
    
       The first word at thy left hand:
                          We start from the left side. ^^
    
       a false lunacy, a madly dancing man.
                          Queen Gertrud protects Hamlet by stating he is insane.
                          The gravedigger/clown guy hamlet meets on the graveyard.
    
       Hearing unhearable words, drawn
                          Hamlet, being called by his father's ghost
    
       to a beloved's grave --- and there,
                          This refers to Ophelia's funeral.
    
       mayhap, true madness at last.
                          Well, he seemed rather mad in the end.
                          Or it might just refer to things that happen in general,
                           when he battles Laertes, for instance.
    
    
    
       As did this one playing at death,
                          Juliet, trying to feign her own death.
    
       find true death at the last.
                          As you should know. ^^
    
       Killing a nameless lover,
       she pierced a heart rent by sorrow.
                          Her own, in fact.
    
    
       Doth lie invite truth?
                          This would hold true for most Shakespearean tragedies.
    
       Doth verity but wear the mask of falsehood?
                          This is supposed to be about Othello,
                          but I can't explain why.
    
       Ah, thou pityful, thou miserable ones.
                          Othello, too, can't see why though.
    
    
       Still amidst lies, though the end cometh not,
       wherefore yearn for death?
                          King Lear yearned for it, but it wouldn't come.
                          Instead he survived his own daughter... poor guy.
    
       Will thou attend thy beloved? Truths and lies, life and death:
                          The only daughter that was truly loyal to Lear, Cordelia.
    
       a game of turning white to black and black to white.
                          This would have matched Othello perfectly...
                          ah, well.
    
    
       Is not a silence brimming with love more precious than flattery?
                         As GLOCK20 pointed out to me, this is a reference to one of 
                         the key scenes in King Lear, the one in which King Lear 
                         wants to give half of his kingdom to the daughter who will 
                         best express her love for him. Lear misunderstands his only 
                         faithful daughter Cordelia when she tells him, she cannot 
                         speak because her love for him cannot be put into words, 
                         while the other two tell him sweet lies.
                         
       A peaceful slumber preferred to a throne besmirched with blood?
                         Like the throne Macbeth gets by murdering old King Duncan. 
                         As Poganin points out, there is a Kurosawa movie named 
                         'Throne of Blood' which reenacts Shakespeare in feudal 
                         Japan. (It is, like all Kurosawa movies, (my favourite is 
                         'The 7 Samurai') an excellent film and you should watch it 
                         if you have the occasion.)
    
       One vengeful man spilled blood for two;
                          Anybody out for revenge? Well, Hamlet for one,
                          to avenge his murdered father.
    
       Two youths shed tears for three;
                          Matches only Romeo and Juliet and perfectly at that.
    
       Three witches disappeared thusly;
                          You know, those from Macbeth:
                          'By the pricking of my thumbs,
                          something wicked this way comes. '
    
       And only the four keys remain.
                          Nope, not the great Speare this time. ^^
    
    
    
    So, you might wonder, what do those last lines mean?
    Obviously they contain several of the aforementioned plays.
    Maybe you have to do something with the corresponding numbers.
    
    
    
    Q:   I just can't solve it. Give me something to work with.
    
    A:   In detail:
         The solution to this puzzle is:
         Hamlet,Romeo and Juliet, Othello, King Lear and Macbeth.
         In Roman numerals IV, I, V, II, III. (Arabic: 4,1,5,2,3)
    
    
    Q:   Ok, that's the sequence, i'm sure of it. BUT IT WON'T WORK!!
    
    A:   There's one more verse to be taken into consideration...
    
    
    Q:   Right, you know-it-all... what's with all the bleeding and crying?
    
    A:   Well, since the characters that are described here are from books that
         were already mentioned before, you might have to change their
         corresponding numbers...
    
    
    Q:   And what bloody characters are those supposed to be?
    
    A:   Think now. Who was out for revenge? Someone who lost a person very close
         to him maybe? Someone who would kill to get his right? Two youths. That
         sound familiar? Two young people? Did they know each other? Did they like
         one another maybe? Three witches. By the pricking of my thumbs,
         something wicked this way comes.
    
    
    Q:   Right, I get it now. What do I do with the numbers now?
    
    A:   Rather hard to hint at that. The vengeful man spilled blood for two...
         TWICE as much as that for one man. The two youths shed tears for three...
         THREE TIMES as much as one alone would have been able to shed.
         The witches disappeared. There were witches here.
         They are gone now. They left NOTHING behind, absolutely nothing.
    
    
    Q:  I give up, that riddle is stupid and totally incomprehensible and the
        fact that you wasted precious time and energy with it, fills my heart with
        sadness.
    
    A:   Strange, I felt similar about all of this. ^^
         Here's the full explanation though:
    
    
    
    
    
      So the vengeful man spilled blood for two, he should get credit for that. 
      Let's multiply his number with two.
    
      2x4=8 (8,1,5,2,3)
    
      Two youths shed tears for three? That's not fair, they should get their value 
      multiplied with three for that, too.
    
      3x1=3 (8,3,5,2,3)
    
      The three witches disappear. Well, good riddance. ^^
      (8,3,5,2)
    
      Now really only four keys remain:
      
      8 3 5 2
    
      Go for it.

    III.2 Brookhaven Hospital F2 Puzzle:
    __________________________________________
    
    ITEMS NEEDED:
    NONE
    
    
      The door is locked with one of those unbreakable quality Silent Hill keypad 
      locks (R), featuring numbers 1 to 9. (Didn't you ever wonder why in most 
      action movies they just have to shoot those things to get them open? Well, I 
      tried, but it wouldn't work for me. Guess those locks are action-hero-proof or 
      something. ^^) Next to the door on the west side wall you will find a long 
      memo, read it. The text goes as follows:
    
    
    Pure eyes, blue like a glassy bead---
    You are always looking at me
    and I am always looking at you.
    
    Ah, you're too meek---
    beautiful, unspoiled:
    thus I'm so sad, I suffer---
    and so happy, it hurts.
    
    I want to hurt you
    and destroy myself
    What you would think
    if you knew how I felt.
    
    Would you simply smile,
    not saying a word?
    Even curses from your mouth
    would be as beautiful as pearls.
    
    I place my left hand on your
    face as though we were to kiss.
    Then I suddenly shove my thumb
    deep into your eyesocket.
    Abruptly, decisively,
    like drilling a hole.
    
    And what would it feel like?
    Like jelly?
    Trembling with ecstasy, I obscenely
    mix it around and around: I must
    taste the warmth of your blood.
    
    How would you scream?
    Would you shriek "It hurts!
    It hurts!" as cinnabar-red tears
    stream from your crushed eye?
    
    You can't know the maddening
    hunger I've felt in the midst of
    our kisses, so many of them
    I've lost count.
    
    As though drinking in your cries,
    I bring my hopes to fruition:
    biting your tongue, shredding it,
    biting at your lips as if tasting
    your lipstick.
    
    Oh, what euphoric heights I would
    reach, having my desires fulfilled
    like a greedy, gluttonous cur.
    
    I longed, too, for your cherry-tinted
    cheeks, tasty enough to bewitch my
    tongue.
    I would surely be healed,
    and would cry like a child.
    
    And how is your tender ear?
    It brushes against my cheek;
    I want it to creep up to my lips so
    I can sink my teeth into its flesh.
    
    Your left ear, always hearing words
    whispered sweet as pie---
    I want it to hear my true feelings.
    I never lied, no...
    but I did have my secrets.
    
    Ah, but what must you think of me?
    Do you hate me? Are you afraid?
    As though inviting you to the agony
    at the play's end; if you wish, you
    could destroy me--- I wouldn't care.
    
    As you wish, you may destroy me
    --- I wouldn't care.
    
    That's it. 15 verses.
    
    First thing: Look for things that could be converted into a keypad code.
    
    Second thing: Hard mode puzzles require a great deal of abstraction.
    
    =========================================
    Solution:
    I admit, this one gave me a hard time myself.
    We had some discussions over it on the SHF and when I finally solved it
    with my patented doodling method, I was rather unsatisfied with the result.
    sin1982cl however came up with a far more logical explanation for this one,
    and that's why my credit goes out to him.
    I had to edit it his explanation a bit, though. ^^
    
    As often in puzzles that are about abstraction, you have to relate
    two things without obvious connection to one another. Same thing here.
    As you might have noticed while reading the poem, it deals with facial parts.
    Now we can overlay the important areas of a face to a keypad without problems.
    It looks like this:
    
    1   2   3               eye         eye
    
    4   5   6               ear   nose  ear
    
    7   8   9             cheek  mouth  cheek
    
    
    Most of this riddle is simply fillers, what
    we have to focus on is the parts of the face
    that are connected with the riddlemakers mouth.
    He seems to be a little cannibal.
    
    " ...I place my left hand on your
    face as though we were to kiss
    then I suddenly shove my thumb
    deep into your eyesocket,..."
    
    
    If you were standing face to face to another person,
    your left hand would touch his right side.
    So this has to be the RIGHT eye.
    
    
    "...I must
    taste the warmth of your blood.
    
    How would you scream?
    Would you shriek "It hurts!
    It hurts!" as cinnabar-red tears
    stream from your crushed eye?..."
    
    "...taste the warmth of our blood..." is the important bit.
                                          The blood is another thing we have to
                                          watch since he has to lick it up to taste
                                          it.Since the bloody tears are streaming
                                          DOWNWARDS, this means we have to go
                                          DOWN from our starting position (on #1)
                                          and move on to #4.
    
    
    "...I bring my hopes to fruition:
    biting your tongue, shredding it,
    biting at your lips as if tasting
    your lipstick..."
    
    "...biting at your lips..."            is our next point of interest.
                                           This can be clearly placed as the mouth
                                           area and thus #8 on the keypad.
    
    "...I longed, too, for your cherry-tinted
    cheeks, tasty enough to bewitch my
    tongue..."
    
    the "..cherry-tinted cheeks..."       are what our flesh-loving friend is after
                                          next, which corresponds to either 7 or 9.
    
    
    "...your left ear, always hearing words
    whispered sweet as pie..."            the left ear corresponds with key #6.
    
    
    
    
      This leaves us with two possibilities for the final combination:
    
    4896 and
    4876
    
    
      We decided on choosing the left cheek variant, because it is located between 
      the mouth and the left ear, so you might imagine our riddler to first bite the 
      mouth, lick the cheek and then bite the ear.
    
      The sequence would therefore be 4 8 9 6, which proves to be the final 
      combination.

    III.3 BROOKHAVEN HOSPITAL ATTACHES CASE PUZZLE
    __________________________________________
    
    'The starting time is the key'
      This is not a riddle to me, so I'll just tell you that the solution is the 
      same as on normal riddle mode.
    
    __________________________________________
    III.4 BROOKHAVEN HOSPITAL CREMATORIUM PUZZLE:
    __________________________________________
    
    ITEMS NEEDED:
    NONE
    
      Go and read the ten memos that are scattered around the room. Then proceed to 
      read the poem inscribed on the crematorium door. Once you've got all that, you 
      are ready to attack that combination lock.
    
      The memos read as follows: (the number represents the bed on which it is 
      found, the titles are what the memos are called in the memo-screen):
    
    1. Song of the Sparrow:
    
    Who killed Cock Robin?
    "The Sparrow," they said
    "He wants them all dead
    To him honey-sweet is their sobbin'."
    
    
    2. Song of the Owl:
    
    The Owl who forgot the sky
    Resigned to his poor earthbound state
    Hungry of full didn't matter at all,
    He ate and he ate and he ate.
    
    
    3. Song of the Thrush:
    
    The grass the Thrush so loved to eat
    Gave him sweet happiness
    He sank ever deeper and finally fell
    To destruction and fatal distress.
    
    
    4. Song of the Robin:
    
    Cock Robin, who hid the key away
    Is ash in the oven all right.
    The place he held is empty now
    And the doors remain shut tight.
    
    
    5. Song of the Lark:
    The Lark's child lost all his words
    And walled himself up all away.
    Heart and mouth both locked up tight
    In a cage where no one want to stay.
    
    
    6. Song of the Dove:
    The Dove's hope died, he chose his path
    His flapping wings fell still
    Drenched in scarlet there he lay
    His cheeks pale white an chill.
    
    
    7. Song of the Linnet:
    
    He seeks out her soul by his own black ambition.
    Frightening her out of her wits
    Whispering love songs in her ear
    What cruel Linnet wants, he gets.
    
    
    8. Song of the Rook:
    
    The black Rook is the praying sort
    Who hears the gods in the skies
    His whispered petitions go on without end
    And glassy and dim are his eyes.
    
    
    9. Song of the Wren:
    
    The Wren with pure heart as yet unrefined
    Makes us laugh unto his feeble lip-smacking
    But still we all know he shall never grow old
    And he knows not how much he is lacking.
    
    
    0. Song of the Kite:
    
    The Kite hot, crazy and panting mad
    Sweet shackles that tease and excite
    Death itself would drive him wild
    Red blood that turns milky white.
    
    
    
    Crematorium door:
    
    Burn the one who knows no death
    Pure, adored by those above
    No prayers within, just simple love
    
    And now the pining hunter
    The flames longing for his rebirth
    A distant flame within the earth.
    
    Burn up that heavy body of his
    Make it wind, dancing in the sky
    That bottomless gut now a cloud, now a sigh
    
    The sweet blood on his laughing lips
    Now calls him to the gates of hell
    There burns evermore that soulless shell.
    
    Four bodies return to ashes
    Thus the door is opened
    Thus the door is opened
    
      First thing: There's four numbers on the combination lock.
    
      Second thing: There's four verses on the crematorium door.
    
    
    Q:I don't see what the connection between those birds and the numbers for the
      keys should be...
    
    A:Check the environment more closely.
      Especially the beds.
    
    
    Q:So all I have to do this time is match the memo numbers
      to the verses on the crematorium door?
    
    A:Yes, this one is a piece of cake... though the clues tend
      to be a bit mushy at times.
    
    =========================================
    Solution:
     As mentioned before, you have to match four of the birds to the four verses of 
     the poem on the crematorium door.
    
        The first one:
                        "Burn the one who knows no death
                         Pure, adored by those above
                         No prayers within, just simple love.",
      refers to the Wren, as his heart is pure and his lip-smacking for us is a sign 
      of the simple love within him.
    
        The second verse: "And now the pining hunter
                           The flames longing for his rebirth
                           A distant flame within the earth.",
      refers to the Owl. A hunting bird, but bound to earth,
      this matches exactly the description in the memo.
    
        Third verse:"Burn up that heavy body of his
                     Make it wind, dancing in the sky
                     That bottomless gut now a cloud, now a sigh",
      refers to the Linnet. Actually I thought this was the perfect match for the 
      owl at first, but then I remembered that Linnet are real gluttons and are 
      known for eating three times their weight in a single day. That is also where 
      he got his name: This peculiar bird tends to eat so much flaxseed, that it 
      cannot fly anymore. The old word for flax was Lin or Linnen. 
      (I'm not making this up, check a dictionary. ^^)
    
        Fourth verse:"The sweet blood on his laughing lips
                      Now calls him to the gates of hell
                      There burns evermore that soulless shell.",
      refers to the Sparrow. Since he loves to make the Robins suffer, there is 
      blood on his lips and he is smiling because he just killed one.
    
        The final sequence therefore is:
      Wren, Owl, Linnet, Sparrow.
      
      Or in numbers:
      (9; 2; 7; 1)

    6. FIGHTING TACTICS GUIDE:
    ==========================================
    BOSS FIGHT: SPLITWORM.
    
    The splitworm does not require any sophisticated tactical work.
    Equip your bullet vest, keep your distance to the opening he comes out from
    and shoot him when he sticks his head out. 1 to 3 clips will do the trick.
    
    
    
    BOSS FIGHT: MISSIONARY.
    
    There is no elaborated tactic known to me.
    Anyway, a basic one will do the trick here, too.
    Wait till the monster approaches you to cut you in half,
    then run sideways and let him have a full salvo, preferably from the shotgun.
    When he is down, give him some more to swallow and he shouldn't be doing much
    damage to you.
    
    
    
    BOSS FIGHT: LEONARD.
    
    Don't let go of that search view button. (L2)
    Get any gun you like and best equip your bullet vest as well.
    Follow him when he submerges and once he pops up again, quickly circle him
    and make him eat lead.
    There's only one thing you have to look out for: his long arms.
    Stay out of his reach and he can't harm you.
    One of the many advantages of using firearms.
    Sounds simple, smells simple, tastes like chicken.
    
    
    
    BOSS FIGHT: THE MEMORY OF ALESSA.
    
    Well, the first 'Alessa' only brings a knife and a pretty mean punch with her.
    Simply outrun her, wait till she tries to stab you and then shoot her
    with the hand gun or slice her with the Katana.
    The Stun Gun works to great effect also.
    
    The second 'Alessa' packs some artillery, which makes fighting her very similar
    to fighting Cibyl. You can hide behind horses and use them same tactics on her
    than you did on the previous one.
    
    Third 'Alessa' will attack you with a pipe...
    She is consequently rather slow and is easily dealt with, using the evade and
    shoot tactic.
    
    Fourth 'Alessa' Packs a submachine gun... better not let her use it.
    Although the SMG bursts can be evaded when running or hiding behind horses,
    best stay close to her,
    
    
    
    BOSS FIGHT: THE GOD
    Ooh, a god, scary. The bastard sends homing hellfire lv. 7 after you... No 
    reason to break a sweat though, just stay well out of range of his enormously 
    long appendages and evade his fire attacks. Once you've evaded one of the 
    latter, shoot him a couple of times with the handgun and when he goes down use 
    the biggest piece of artillery you can. If you are low on ammo, you may also use 
    melee weapons. If you are out of ammo, things will get nasty. You have to evade 
    his fire attacks several times and stay close to him till he goes down, then 
    attack his head with a melee weapon and bail out of there again... Pretty time-
    consuming work, but still a way of defeating him. Shouldn't take too long if 
    done correctly.
    
    CRACKERJACK has found an even more elegant way of dealing with the god:
    
    To put it simple: when you enter the arena, you can spot crescent shaped 
    markings on the floor and Claudia's dress, these will help you find the right 
    positions. Walk forward to the hem of the dress, don't get nervous because of 
    your Proximity to her. Now maintain that distance and head to the right, to the 
    inner edge of the crescent markings. You will be save from her swipes there 
    while she is still standing. You can bring her down with a couple of well-placed 
    shots now, or just wait till she goes down by herself. Once she is down, move 
    towards her till you are about level with her wrist, still maintaining the same 
    distance to the socket she rests on. Get out the maul and start beating her 
    around the head with it. You will be save from her swipes if you have found the 
    right position. This might take a bit of fine tuning, but it works and really 
    good at that, too. When she gets back up, move to Position 1. Proceed in this 
    vein till you've beaten her head in and you are done. Check the diagram to get a 
    better idea of this method.

    7. EXTRA WEAPONS:
    ==========================================
    
    Upon every consecutive clear, you will be awarded with an extra weapon.
    The conditions upon which they are awarded have not yet been cleared yet,
    I'll try to add this as soon as I understand them.
    
    Here's how to find them:
    
    
    BEAM SABER:          The name is the game. Found as a replacement door knob
                         on the far west end of the 2nd floor in the Shopping Mall.
    
    
    FLAMETHROWER:        Found in Helen's Bakery, also on the 2nd floor of the
                         Shopping Mall. Read the note under it. ^^
    
    
    UNLIMITED SMG AMMO:  Found in the dead end alley, right after you exit
                         the bathroom window. No, it's not a bandana.
    
    
    HEATHER BEAM:        Equipped from the beginning. 
    
                         Can only be used when no weapon is equipped. It has two 
                         firing modes:
                         
                         Heather Beam: Homing white balls of light that pursue 
                                       targets. Not even that weak, once you have 
                                       mastered their use.
                         
                         NRJ Octagons: Octagonal (??) shaped energy formations that 
                                       need to be aimed by you. Pretty powerful and 
                                       neat to look at.
                         
                         
                         When used with the Transform Costume, 
                         it produces other results:
                         
                         Sexy Beam:     Like the Heather Beam, only that it is pink 
                                        and you don't shoot 2 balls, but 8 instead. 
                                        On top of that, there's a weird shaped 
                                        energy thingy shooting out that you can aim 
                                        with the D-pad or the stick. 
                                        Simply devastating.
                                        
                         Eye Laser:     The name is the game. Heather shoots two 
                                        laser beams from her eyes... Extremely 
                                        useful when facing enemies at a distance.
                         
                         Heather and Sexy Beam can be unleashed by simply pressing 
                         X. The Eye Laser and the Energy Octagons can be produced by 
                         tapping forward + X on the D-pad, and then need directing.

    8. EXTRA COSTUMES:
    ==========================================
    
    Extra costumes can be unlocked at the Extra Costumes screen. (duh.)
    They require passwords which can be found throughout the game or are awarded
    with game clears. Here's an incomplete list of the costumes available.
    
    NOTE: those passwords are case-sensitive.
    
    HappyBirthDay     : Heather shirt
    TOUCH_MY_HEART    : Don't Touch Shirt
    LightToFuture     : The Light Shirt
    ShogyouMujou      : Transience Shirt
    BlueRobbieWin     : Killer Rabbit Shirt
    01_03_08_11_12    : Royal Flush Shirt
    cockadooodledoo   : Golden Rooster Shirt
    GangsterGirl      : God of Thunder Shirt
    I_Love_You        : Onsen Shirt
    PrincessHeart     : Transform Costume (un- and reequip for some serious fun.)
    Shut_your_mouth   : Zipper Shirt
    PutHere2FeelJoy   : Block Head Shirt
    SH3_Wrestlarn     : Game Reactor Shirt
    sLmLdGhSmKfBfH    : Play Shirt
    Suspense          : 13ème Rue Shirt
    
    About the shirts:
    
    Heather Shirt       : shirt worn by the creative team when being interviewed.
    
    The Light Shirt     : the picture is from SH1. It can be found on the 3rd floor
                          of Alchemilla Hospital and is titled:
                         'The Light illuminating the Darkness'
    
    Killer Rabbit Shirt : yep, those are the bunnies from the Amusement Park. ^^
    
    God of Thunder Shirt: not 100% sure about that, but I think it shows Raijin,
                          the ancient Japanese god of thunder. The tattoos on her
                          arms seem to be Japanese or Chinese ink drawings.
                          I can't yet give any information about those on her hands
                          because I still haven't seen any screencaps.
                          I'll try and find out, though.
    
    Onsen Shirt         : well, IIRC, onsen means hot springs in japanese.
                          So this must be the fan shirt of some unknown spa. ^^
                          My friend Makube told me that written above the symbol 
                          is the word 'household' and that the symbol on the bottom 
                          stands for some bath... (I thought it was a steaming mug)
                          Is this an advice for hardcore gamers to take baths more
                          often? ^^
    
    Transform Costume   : Hm... I guess this thing should ring a bell with everyone.
                          In case it doesn't: sailor uniform.
                          Un- and reequip it for a cool cutscene. ^^
    
    Royal Flush Shirt   : As from the SHF points out, this thing has 
                          a very interesting history of its own. I hope that,
                          with the help of Skyfox, I can bring it to you.
    
    Game Reactor Shirt  : Game Reactor is free gaming mag in
                          Norway, Denmark and Finland. Not in Germany, though.
    
    Play Shirt          : The shirt from a rather new german game mag 
                          called (can you guess it?)'Play'.
                          url: http://www.playplaystation.com 
                          (It says so on the shirt's back). 
                          The front features the ever so popular winged flaming skull.
                          Heather goes Heavy Metal.
    
    13ème Rue Shirt     : 13ème Rue is a french Horror and action network, 
                          broadcasting 24/7 nowadays. If you want to. Visit their 
                          webpage if you want to order your very own Treizième Rue 
                          Shirt.
                          
    ==========================================
    ENDINGS:
    ==========================================
    
    EXTREME SPOILERS:
    
    
    Known to me so far are three endings:
    (Of course this does NOT mean that's all you can get.)
    
    NORMAL   : Heather defeats Claudia, who had tried to give birth to god after 
               Heather 'aborted' him. Having killed Claudia, Heather is once more 
               overwhelmed by the sadness she feels because of losing her dad, 
               Harry. Cut. The Amusement Park. Douglas has managed in spite of his 
               broken leg, to find a bank to sit on and has fallen asleep. Heather 
               approaches and Douglas wakes with a start. On recognizing her, he 
               smiles and asks her whether all is over now. Heather, holding the 
               knife in her hand, keeps her stony face. She approaches Douglas and 
               says in a tone that sends shivers up your spine: 'Not yet... You're 
               still alive.' Douglas' face is contorted with panic. Heather 
               approaches him and he knows that he cannot escape her. Suddenly 
               Heather leaps towards him and shouts: 'Booh.' Great relief on 
               Douglas' side here. ^^ Heather asks Douglas to call her by her real 
               name from now on: Cheryl. Douglas inquires whether Heather will also 
               let her hair go back to black. She answers: 'Well, I dunno... don't 
               you think blondes have more fun?' Credit roll. Heather kneels before 
               Harry's grave.
    
    POSSESSED: Heather defeats Claudia, who had tried to give birth to god after
               Heather 'aborted' him. Having killed Claudia, Heather is once more
               overwhelmed by the sadness she feels because of losing her dad,
               Harry. Cut. The Amusement Park. A puddle on the ground. Something
               drips down and into it. Douglas is lying in a pool of blood.
               The influence of Samael seems to have been too much for Heather.
               As the camera pans up, you can see her bloodstained knife,
               Fade to black, credits.
    
    
    
    UFO      : Don't want to spoil this for anyone, only this much:
               It's not the UFO ending, it's the REVENGE ending.
               Oh yeah, and it rocks. ^^
    
    
    ==========================================
    EASTER EGGS:
    ==========================================
    Thanks to an anonymous helper who send me those:
    Thanks to Manuel, who pointed out the silencer to me.
    
    I'M A DETECTIVE. DETECTIVE? RIGHT.
    After clearing the game once, mark the EXTRA NEW GAME option and enter:
    UP, UP, DOWN, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT, LEFT, RIGHT, CIRCLE, X.
    Select the desired difficulty levels.
    If done successfully, you'll receive a very... interesting sound.
    Watch the cutscenes closely from now on. ^___^
    
    
    DID YOU DROP THIS PIPE?
    When in the sewers, in the room with the monster and the outlet,
    go to the edge of the water and press X. Throw in your steel pipe.
    Answer all questions truthfully and you'll get a nifty extra.
    
    
    SNAKE? SNAKE! SNAAAKE!!
    When you enter the room with the filthy mattress
    (fifth floor on the construction site,) in it,
    bear right and examine the walls. Equip the mace and find
    something really useful... well, useful for MGS fans, anyway. ^^
    
    
    WHO WOULD EVEN THINK OF DOING SOMETHING SO DISGUSTING?!
    Good news for fans of SH2:
    if you still have a savegame from SH2 on your memory card, it will influence 
    the game at certain points, similar to Metal Gear Solid. ^^
    The changes as discovered so far are these:
    - The Ladies' Room in the Alternate Mall:
       Examine the toilet and you will see that not everybody is as tough as 
       good old James when it comes to manipulating the plumbing.
    - Daisy Ville Apartment Block:
       Check the letterbox.
    - Heaven's Night Bar:
       You will find a tourist information pamphlet on a table that should be very 
       familiar to you. Also a poster is lying on the stage which you might find
