     01  //  i n t r o d u c t i o n
    
     Welcome to this guide to Silent Hill 3.
    
     So I've returned to Silent Hill. This guide has been in the works since the
     middle of May when I got around to playing the demo of the game, but I put it
     on hold to complete the Terminator guide I made which was a quick romp through
     the game. Hopefully now this guide won't suffer now with that out of the way.
    
     I'm trying to keep this intro brief, so I'll get straight to the point. I'll
     slowly be working my way through the various sections of this guide as I can,
     but I'd be glad to receive any help I can get, so if you have anything you
     want to know, do know, or whatever, then please feel free to contact me. Just
     make sure you include Silent Hill 3 in the subject line of your e-mail so I
     will take notice of it.
    
     Onwards...

     Just a quick rundown of all the controls and options you should know about
     before playing the game.
    
     02  //  01  //  t h e  b a s i c s  -  c o n t r o l s
    
     If you've played Silent Hill before then the default controls will feel right
     at home. In the options the default is labeled Type B. Type A is more or less
     the same, but actually seems configured for those used to the Biohazard
     controls in Japan (where run and action are reversed). These are the controls:
    
        | Button             | Type A Action          | Type B Action          |
        |--------------------|------------------------|------------------------|

     02  //  02  //  t h e  b a s i c s  -  o p t i o n s  s c r e e n
    
     Silent Hill 3 also maintains it's standard options screens, as well as bonus
     option menu. The main menu consists of the following:
    
     - Button Config
       As above. Choose between control style A and B.
    
     - Language Option (PAL Only)
       Choose between English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish text. If
       they're going for a quick US release this may still be in here with English
       and French for it's trip to Canada. We'll see.
    
     - Subtitles
       For cutscenes, have text on or off.
    
     - Brightness Level
       Adjust the games brightness.
    
     - Screen Position
       Adjust the location of the game on your screen.
    
     - Vibration
       Oddly, choose between 4 different levels of vibration. Soft, Normal
       (Default), Hard, and Off.
    
     - Sound
       Choose between Stereo and Monaural (Mono) sound.
    
     - BGM Volume
       Set the level for the games background music.
    
     - SE Volume
       Set the level for the games sound effects.
    
     - Control Type
       This allows you to change the controls between a 3D and 2D type. 3D allows
       you to push in different directions relative to the screen but not limited
       to, giving 3D motion of the character. This makes the character follow where
       you push on the control in a three dimensional manor. 2D is like
       traditional (i.e. Resident Evil) style which means that pushing in one
       direction always puts the character in that direction, like a tank (i.e. Up
       is always forward, left always turns left, etc.).
    
     To gain access to the Extra Options menu, while you're in the main options
     menu press L1 or R1, just like with the first two games. A secondary menu will
     come up with the following:
    
     - Blood Color
       Allows you to set different colors just in case red isn't your thing. Pick
       between Green, Violet, Black, and Normal (Red).
    
     - Blood Volume
       This allows you to change the amount of blood which appears. Choose from
       Little, Normal, and Much.
    
     - Walk/Run Control
       This allows you to set the default control for the character. Normal means
       to run you'll have to hold the run button, and not holding it makes you
       walk.
       Reverse does what it is, and reverses that option. This means the character
       always runs and to walk you need to hold the button.
    
     - Map
       This sets the starting point for the maps you use. Zoom out means the whole
       map will be displayed when you open the map window. Zoom in means the
       current area of the map your in will be displayed when you open the map
       window.
    
     - Noise Effect
       This turns the grain filter on and off. Some people don't like it, so now -
       for the first time - you have the option to change it without having to beat
       the game once first with it on.
    
     - Display Mode
       This is the long touted second filter for the game which adjusts the
       sharpness of the picture. Things may get generally a little more pixellated
       on fine lines (i.e. jaggies) with this on, but the overall effect is a much
       clearer world. Then again the reason to leave it on normal is to see the
       game as was intended. It's all up to you.
    
     There are also additional options that will appear in this Extra Option menu
     once you finish the game. Of course if you've played Silent Hill before then
     you've probably got a good idea of what these are. More in the secrets section
     about that.
    
    
     02  //  03  //  t h e  b a s i c s  -  g a m e  m o d e s
    
     As like in Silent Hill 2, you'll start off the first time with the base
     selection of up to six options for two gameplay modes when playing your game.
     This is Action and Riddle difficulty. Here is a quick run down of these
     options and what they mean to you when your playing. You can pick any
     variation of these, such as Easy-Hard, Easy-Normal, Hard-Normal, Hard-Hard,
     etc. etc.
    
     - Easy Action Level
       Picking this option will allow you to focus on the riddle and exploration
       rather than the action of the game, although Heather will have advanced
       combat skills here to make the game easier. Enemies are also ridiculously
       easy, slower than they should be, and won't attack as often. You can leave
       Heather standing still in a room of enemies for a long time and not expect
       to be hurt badly. Apart from these features, Heather also can't die by
       falling off ledges or in most of the traps in the games, instead she'll just
       act like she's running along the edges instead or easily outrun or avoid
       traps. Ammo is also easily stockpiled.
    
     - Easy Riddle Level
       The "guided by the hand" puzzle mode, or "someone pulled out a six year olds
       puzzle book and gave it to you to finish" mode. Hints are easily found and
       given, some puzzles just don't appear at all, and with most of the ones that
       do the answers are basic and straight forward.
    
     - Normal Action Level
       The "standard" action level which balances the game between super easy and
       hard. More enemies are to be found and they're faster and stronger than in
       Easy. Ammo numbers stay similar to easy, but won't be stockpiled as easy due
       to the level of the enemies. Heather also becomes an average markswoman and
       can also now fall off the edges of the various holes in the ground. You'll
       need to push back away from the edge if this happens for her to regain her
       balance. Traps also become a little more difficult, but still easy enough to
       get past.
    
     - Normal Riddle Level
       Things begin to get a little harder. Puzzles require some thought in
       solution, new puzzles appear over the easy mode, and hints are hard to find.
       Solutions shouldn't give you long problems however as just some quick
       checking should get you through most areas.
    
     - Hard Action Level
       The next action level is the hardest of the original selections. Enemies
       numbers will likely stay the same, but will require more ammo to take down,
       they'll move quicker, and attack harder than before. There are less items
       and ammo to be found in certain areas and new items to be found in others
       over the previous modes. Heather becomes about as useful in combat as Marge
       Simpson shooting at precious antique cans. Traps will generally work
       earlier and kill you quicker, and you'll have less chances to react if
       Heather gets near the edge of a hole in the ground. Oh, and I don't know if
       it was my controlling or not, but she seems more clumsy in Hard mode, like
       running into walls and doors was an easier thing to do than in any other
       mode.
    
     - Hard Riddle Level
       Riddles become super difficult and require a lot of thought, as well as some
       decent background knowledge of certain content, and even some decent tenth
       grade math. :p Hints are next to impossible to find and Heather seems to
       know little.
    
     Apart from these choices there are also additional modes including one
     beginner level should you die a lot, and many bonus extreme difficulty levels
     which you can unlock.
    
     - Beginner Action Mode
       If you die often in Normal, or basically once in Easy Action modes, then the
       game will unlock this option for you. It's not added to the standard list
       you get when selection New Game or Extra New Game, and is instead added to
       the Extra Options list - so that you can switch this option on even in the
       middle of your currently saved game. Basically this makes the action of the
       game even more piss easy than "Easy" mode, and should only be used if you
       want to make the game boring as hell in the combat department.
    
     - Extreme Action Mode
       Once you've finished the game in Hard Action mode, you'll unlock the Extreme
       Action Mode, specifically Extreme 1. Each time the Extreme mode is completed
       another Extreme level is added, right up to Extreme X (or Extreme 10). The
       major difference in these modes comes from the fact that enemies deal out
       more damage and take more ammo to take down. The ammo can be handled
       thankfully through the bullet adjust, but the amount of healing items will
       not adjust, meaning you're going to have to be more careful about how you
       play through the game.

     || Heather
    
        "The heroine of this story. She is just an ordinary girl, with a bit of a
         sharp tongue and quick temper. On a typical Sunday she went shopping to
         the local mall, and stepped without warning, into a world of nightmares.
         Terrified of the bizarre situation she finds herself in, she nonetheless
         has the courage to fight back and survive."
    
        Sunday shopping that leads to a horror story. As like the past main
        characters of the Silent Hill series, there is more than meets the eye,
        but what is really going on? Heather's story will take you to many new
        locations and through many experiences. Will you be able to guide her to
        the conclusion?
    
    
     || Douglas
    
        "A middle-aged detective. For some unknown reason he was following Heather
         through the mall, when he found himself caught up in the same nightmarish
         world. Will he prove to be an ally to Heather? Or is he her enemy?"
    
        Douglas approaches Heather with the intention of having her meet someone.
        To just borrow a little of her time in order to talk to her about something
        important about her. Who is this person, what does it have to do with
        Heather?
    
    
     || Claudia
    
        "A mysterious woman who Heather meets in the distorted shopping mall. She
         slips through the darkness, leaving behind words fraught with hidden
         meaning. Could there be some kind of connection between her and the
         strange apparitions that menace Heather?"
    
        As mentioned, exploration leads Heather to a meeting with this strange
        woman. The words maybe "fraught with hidden meaning", but at first they'll
        leave nothing but major confusion to all those who hear it. What does it
        all mean?

     04  //  e n e m i e s
    
     || Double Head
    
        The first enemy you'll come across in the game is an odd dog wrapped in
        bandages. As to why they're given the name of Double Head and make their
        appearance odder more, their head splits open in the middle to attack. For
        most people will be reminiscent of the Groaner's from the original Silent
        Hill or the Cerberus from Resident Evil.
    
        Their attacks themselves consist of jumping bites as well as latching
        onto your legs until you knock it off. They aren't the hardest of enemies
        to defeat, requiring just a small amount of ammo - roughly 2 to 5 handgun
        bullets - to put down. You can also easily sidestep them if you require
        then follow it up with an attack to hit them from the side.
    
        You will sometimes find them eating already, so try not to disturb them
        if they are doing so because it'll save you some hassle. You can also
        throw them off your track for a while by using Beef Jerky. Heather will
        place a piece on the ground which will keep them occupied long enough for
        you to make a quick escape.
    
     || Closer
    
        These large stalking enemies are slow to react but hide some weird attacks,
        including a dagger like spike within their large arms. Heather will meet
        these first in the very beginning of the game, but will be properly
        introduced to them during a cutscene which takes place shortly after.
    
        Their general attack style is to use their size and arms to knock you
        around or even over onto the floor, but as mentioned they also have a
        secondary attack which they will occasionally use. They're a little
        stronger than the Double Head's but not terribly so, and should be able
        to be killed with a low number of bullets.
    
        Some good tactics to keep in mind when you're in an area with them is to
        either run past if you can spare the space (they're normally quite slow
        to react because of their size) or to shoot them from a distance if you
        can. This will make the job of getting past much easier.
    
     || Pendulum
    
        Probably one of the most unusual creatures in the game, it consists of a
        two headed, one bodied human-like creature, with long bladed arms attached.
        Of course even more weird is the fact there are also blades attached to the
        top of it's each of it's two heads.
    
        Even weirder still is the way that it moves and attacks throughout the span
        of the game. Starting with the large amount of weird noise it makes, it
        basically spins through the air in order to make attacks with it's various
        bladed appendages. These attacks, as you'd expect from so many blades, can
        easily cause quite a bit of damage if you're not careful.
    
        Aside from the amount of damage they can cause, they can also take quite a
        beating and come back for more. What makes this even worse is that most
        areas you'll find them in also contain a number of different enemies as
        well which makes fighting them somewhat annoying. To be exact you're
        probably better off running than fighting, but if you have to fight try and
        keep a distance and pick them off from there.
    
     || Numb Body
    
        You'll come across these odd little creatures during the early stages of
        the game. They make unusual screeching noises and use their entire bodies
        in order to attack. Being two legged as well they move along in a chicken
        like movement, if you could give it any sort of description.
    
        As mentioned it attacks by using shifting it's weight or jumping and
        hitting you with it's "head" or body. This attack isn't particularly too
        strong, but there is one other surprise it has which will make all of these
        attacks stronger. I'll leave that surprise as one, you'll find out when you
        play the game.
    
        Attack wise the Numb Bodies can be taken out in a low amount of ammo and
        fairly quickly, even in numbers - which you will find them in often. The
        aforementioned secret will also however make them slightly stronger than
        normal, but not terribly so. A decent distance to get off enough shots in
        any case will kill them easily.
    
     || Split Worm
    
        The Split Worm is the first boss you'll fight in the game, but doesn't
        consist of much more of a challenge than normal enemies, except for perhaps
        taking a few more shots than normal. This large worm has it's name due to
        the way it's head splits in half to reveal it's actual mouth.
    
        Generally it's attacks consists of attacks of slamming the ground to knock
        Heather off balance or just even ramming into to you to knock you over, but
        will also try to attack you with it's mouth if it can. It will also try to
        slide past if you don't attack it in time, because it will attack from both
        sides of the area you're in.
    
        If you remember the lizard boss at the end of the school section in the
        original Silent Hill then you'll generally know how to take on the split
        worm, that is to shoot once it's mouth is revealed in order to take full
        advantage of the damage you'll cause.
    
     || Insane Cancer
    
        The first time you come across the Insane Cancer is during the subway
        section early in the game. As the name suggest the idea of the character
        seems to be a big blob of an enemy as if it were an overgrown cancerous
        growth, except this one can walk around and attack you.
    
        As you'd expect, the Insane Cancer uses it's size and bulk to attack,
        swinging it's arms to hit you over, blocking walkways and areas with it's
        bulk, and trying to move within swinging range to attack. It's very much
        not the easiest enemy to pass in some of the more compact areas you will
        occasionally find it in.
    
        Attacking should be done as far away from them as possible (although of
        course there is a limit on just how far away you can get before you begin
        to miss) and the heavier the weapon the better as the Insane Cancer's can
        take quite a punishment. This is probably due because of their size.
    
     || Slurper
    
        These unusual creatures you'll find crawling around in various parts of
        the game. The best way to describe them is some sort of mutated anteater.
        They also apparently go on sound or smell, so moving quietly and perhaps
        using the perfume may just throw them off you, but don't hold me to that.
    
        Their attacks basically consist of two things. Attacking your legs or
        knocking you onto the ground. If they manage to do the latter, then they
        can also come in for an attack while your prone on the ground should you
        not manage to pull yourself off the ground quick enough. They also
        occasionally fake their death, sitting waiting to attack you when you're
        coming in to stomp on them.
    
        Taking them out quickly when they're in your way should be a priority.
        Ganging up on you is something you won't want. They also sometimes manage
        to slip under your current camera angle too because of their crawling,
        so watch out for that as well. Avoid where possible, and shoot dead
        quickly if you have to.
    
     || Nurse
    
        The lead piped nurses are back. These are the parasite style Puppet
        Nurses from Silent Hill or the bubble headed(?) ones from Silent Hill 2,
        but just a new set of deranged Nurses again, who still of course scream
        and swing at you with a pipe.
    
        Deadly pipe that is. The Nurse's general attacks consist of swinging,
        bashing, hiffing, and doing all manor of battery with their weapon of
        choice. It does, as you'd expect, a heavy amount of damage to you, and
        considering often the Nurses come in pairs or more, you really should
        be careful when they're around. As someone reminded me that I forgot to
        note that in harder modes they don't only have steel pipes, but oddly
        they occasionally have handguns which they shoot at you with. They
        aren't all _that_ great at aiming though, but they are fast.
    
        Attack wise, they thankfully aren't at all hard to deal with. At a
        distance even the handgun can pick them off nicely, and for numbers of
        them at close range the shotgun does really well - wide spread damage
        and a heavy impact.
    
     || Valtiel
    
        While not an attackable enemy exactly, Valtiel is, according to the team
        behind the game, a "gatekeeper" of sorts, or rather "valvekeeper," who is
        involved in the change between the "real" and "alternate" worlds of Silent
        Hill 3, along with other tasks which you could only call the "operation" of
        the alternate worlds.
    
        Apart from this task, Valtiel moves much like the Slurper's in that he
        scrambles across things, except that Valtiel can wall on walls and also
        just walk normally like a human being when needed. The entire fact is
        that it could also be said it looks very human indeed, more so than other
        enemies.
    
        One final thing which is worth noting about Valtiel is that should Heather
        die in the middle of combat, randomly you'll get a scene which shows
        Valtiel come along and grabbing the deceased Heather's legs and dragging
        her off into the darkness.
    
     || Glutton
    
        The large unusual creature is another which, much like Valtiel, isn't
        exactly an attackable enemy - at least you can try but it won't get you
        anywhere. A large odd creature, this enemy blocks your exit during a
        certain section of the game. How will you move this enemy from your path?
        You'll have to wait and see.
    
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     I'd advise you to skip the remainder of section perhaps if you've wanting to
     avoid spoilers. The rest of these enemies could be considered a spoiler as
     they are the major enemies of the remainder of the game.
    
     YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. :D
    
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     || Missionary
    
        A direct soldier of Claudia's, the Missionary will block your path of
        trying to follow Claudia. Unintentionally it becomes is one of the most
        important of enemies/boss fights in the game due to it's relation to the
        plot and the location in which you fight it.
    
        Armed with two large metallic like objects which can also be used for
        blocking and attacking, this enemy will run around trying to attack you.
        Without moving yourself you can easily begin to be hit and knocked over,
        but also it's movement can create issues with targeting the Missionary.
    
        Strong weapons would be key to taking it out as well, and a good well timed
        but close shotgun blast will not only knock it over, but make it prone to
        being attacked once again while it lies on the ground. It's blocking of
        attacks is the key to the battle, requiring you to organize how to sneak
        attack it to avoid having your shots blocked.
    
        Later in the game, there will be smaller versions of this enemy as regular
        enemies. They are hardly as tough as this version. They're named Scrapers.
    
     || Leonard (Protector)
    
        A large overbearing monster you'll find below the hospital, Leonard is a
        part of the story surrounding the later part of the game. A large deformed
        human is the only way to describe him because, well, that's what he is. He
        is the keeper of a crest of some sort which seems important.
    
        Leonard has the ability to swim through the watery environment you'll find
        with ease, moving around so fast that you'll lose track of him. His attacks
        are below standard and just consist of large sweeping swipes with clawed
        arms. If you're out of the range then you don't need to worry about being
        hit.
    
        Weapon wise, anything will do - even the handgun. The stronger the weapon
        the quicker you'll take Leonard out, but you don't need to be too focused
        on using your best weapons for this fight. The handgun might take longer,
        but it's not any worse for the fight. You might even find a trick or two
        you can use in the battle
    
     || The Memory Of Alessa
    
        Alessa returns. A warped version of her at least which you'll encounter in
        the Amusement Park. Her attacks consist of using normal weapons you'll have
        seen throughout the game. A knife, handgun, steel pipe, and sub-machine
        gun! This isn't the easiest of battles, but not the hardest either.
    
        Alessa will come out with her first weapon drawn and try to attack you at
        close range. Depending of the ability of later weapons, the attacking types
        will vary, and range between more up close and personal attacks, to
        shooting you at a range.
    
        Depending on the form you're going against, the best tactics to use is
        either at a distance with a weapon of choice while strafing the area, or
        close range with a strong melee weapon such as your Katana. Once one form
        is defeated the next will immediately appear, so be careful.
    
     || The God
    
        The final boss of the game is a bastardized version of the god expected by
        Claudia. A demon birth made of various parts, it's strapped against the
        wall somewhat, you'll have to watch out for it's clawed arms. Once it
        breaks free of the wall you'll have more to worry about.
    
        In this form it can not only claw you but also headbutt you if you get too
        close to where it's crouched. Apart from these attacks, at all times should
        you be out of it's range, it'll pull up a wall of fire to follow you
        around. When this happens you need to be able to run wide of "The God"'s
        attack.
    
        As for taking it on, well it depends on what you have open to you. You
        need to shoot it a few times to get it off the wall, and then you can
        either shoot or slice at it's head with a katana up close. Both have their
        risks and rewards, but you'll need to work with whatever you have at the
        end of the game.
    
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     05  //  w e a p o n s
    
     || Knife
    
        "It's a switchblade for self-defense. Better with than without it against
         those monsters."
    
        As we've been taught, the knife is the "lowest rung of self-defense" in the
        world of so-called "survival horror" although there are a number of people
        out there who excel in taking this instrument of slice n' dice and using it
        with a higher level of skill.
    
        In Silent Hill 3, the knife really should be left to the bottom of the pile
        rightfully because there are better melee weapons out there, but for the
        early stages of the game you might not go wrong on saving some ammo by
        using the blade to take out some of the lesser enemies.
    
     || Handgun
    
        "Holds 10 rounds of ammunition. Small and not powerful, but easy to use."
    
        The basics of weaponry in Silent Hill consists of this very stylish handgun
        which Heather will find, in all places, a clothing boutique. An odd place
        for weaponry indeed. In any case, this will more than likely become your
        buddy of choice for a large chunk of the game when it comes to firearms.
    
        The gun, as mentioned in the description, isn't the most powerful thing you
        can use, but from a distance or on weaker enemies you should find you have
        no trouble entering combat armed with the gun and expecting to well enough
        by it.
    
     || Steel Pipe
    
        "A steel pipe, about 3 feet long. Not very powerful, but not hard to use."
    
        Even though there might be better melee weapons in Silent Hill 3, nothing
        beats the steel pipe for some good smack around fun. Well, perhaps... the
        emergency hammer in the original Silent Hill is something I've always
        wanted to make a return too. Looking in the right place and answering
        some questions will also get you a couple of bonus pipes too - one silver
        and one gold.
    
        Anyway, the steel pipe will work well on most enemies as long as you take
        the advantage of it's long length to work. Most enemies will collapse once
        they've been hit by it, allowing you - with a hard press of X - to smash
        the pipe onto them a few times before they can even get up.
    
     || Shotgun
    
        "Holds 6 rounds of ammunition. It's hard to handle, but has great range."
    
        The weapon of some legends. The ammo maybe limited, but it's damage is
        nice and heavy hitting. Generally all you have to worry about is the
        reloading and perhaps the speed of the weapon when it comes to certain
        areas of the game.
    
        The close but widespread range aspect of the Shotgun however is where the
        weapon shines, especially when you're surrounded by 2-4 enemies in a
        small room and don't know what to do. A couple of shots and they'll all
        be dead.
    
     || Maul
    
        "Like a big round pointy hammer. It's super heavy, but at least it's got
         some oomph."
    
        The maul is probably the worst of the melee weapons due to it's slow use.
        It wouldn't matter how strong it could be, without any decent speed you
        find yourself open to being easily attacked. The best thing to describe
        it against is the Giant Knife in Silent Hill 2.
    
        Should you wish to challenge yourself during the game then using the Maul
        is the weapon best up to that task. Forget impressing people by using the
        knife, the Maul could become the next skilled weapon in the lineup that
        people will write guides for.
    
     || Katana
    
        "This is a short katana, about 2ft. long. Pretty powerful and easy to
         handle."
    
        If you ever earned the Katana in the original Silent Hill then you know
        that while Harry handled it like pro, using it to actually attack
        successfully wasn't as easy, and the bonus weapon really ended up not
        being as good as you would have hoped.
    
        Thankfully Team Silent seem to have worked out the bugs in combat and the
        blade is without a doubt the best weapon you can get in the basic arsenal.
        Deadly and quick killing force. Highly powerful, easy to use, and Heather
        must have getting lessons because she uses it efficiently.
    
     || Stungun
    
        "High voltage to zap the bad guys. It has to touch 'em, though, so it's
         very short-range."
    
        If you count the Stungun as a melee weapon (which I wouldn't it is a
        stunGUN after all) then you could say it's worse than the maul. The close
        range thing is a pain, it's not at all accurate, it's even got limited
        ammo to make matters worse.
    
        Much like the maul, you could consider it strong but yet it's problems
        outnumber it's benefits and it's not worth using it. If you can find some
        decent reason to use it and enemy to use it on, then go right ahead, but
        I'm sure you'll struggle to find a use like I did.
    
     || Sub Machine Gun
    
        "Holds 32 rounds of ammunition. Great for its continuous firing."
    
        The first question to ask really would be, is the Sub Machine Gun a good
        replacement for the Hunting Rifle which appeared in the first two Silent
        Hill games? Well I don't know if you could call it a replacement at all,
        because they are two very different types of weapons.
    
        However the Sub Machine Gun is, surprisingly, a really good weapon for the
        series, which for most people they will complain about the lack of ammo
        you can find. Personally I believe it makes it way more interesting
        because you'll have to pick and choose when to use it.
    
     Aside from these weapons, which make up the base of the game, there are a
     small number of bonus weapons, but you'll have to wait until later for more on
     them.
    
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     06  //  w a l k t h r o u g h
    
     IMPORTANT NOTES: PLEASE READ BEFORE FOLLOWING THE GUIDE
    
     - For the sake of this walkthrough I've played through the entire game on
       Easy-Easy, Normal-Normal, and Hard-Hard (not particularly in that order
       though). All the differences between these basic modes are outlined aside
       from enemies, which would just make the guide even longer. I've generally
       just outlined the enemies as best I can.
     - Direction wise, the top of the map is always the north. This makes the left
       side the west, the right side the east, and the bottom the south. This makes
       it easier to give directions than to always say it's to the direction of
       something else. Please keep this in mind when following the guide.
     - I've added a list of items before each section, and the item numbers for
       the three main difficulty modes. If there is an empty space in the list it
       means you can't get that particular item on that particular action level.
     - Bonus items aren't marked on any of the three columns, but you can get them
       in any difficulty once you earn them.
     - Avoid enemies where possible. Unless you've unlocked like a decent number of
       the bullet adjust, then you're going to be low on ammo for most of the game.
       Especially in the hard action level, where you'll need most of it for the
       bosses.
     - All the important notes, puzzle solutions, bonus weapons, bonus scenes, and
       anything else extra that you need to read has been separated clearly from
       the guide but kept in the right places. A full listing is made at the end
       of the guide.
     - Now that I've finished the game I know the item listing for Easy and Normal
       is just a bit off. For my list the total for Easy was #172, where as the
       game said #173 (damn you one item!), and Normal #162, where the game gave me
       #164. As for Hard however, we both agreed with #149. If you find any more
       items than the ones listed here, note what they were and where, and what
       difficulty you're playing and e-mail them in.
     - A couple of people e-mailed into ask what the Beef Jerky is for - basically
       some enemies, like the Split Head dogs, the slurpers, and so forth - will be
       temporarily attracted to the Jerky, allowing you to either avoid or kill
       them.
     - And finally, some advise. You're going to appreciate the game better if you
       don't follow the guide through from start to finish the first time, and
       only refer to it should you become really stuck. But then again, if you
       want to follow the whole thing then please be my guest - that's why it's
       all there for.

     BEFORE YOU START: IMPORTANT NOTES
    
     It's best to note now that before you proceed anywhere, know that you can
     actually skip this entire section of the game just by approaching any hole in
     the ground and running into it. However it would probably be a good time to
     use this first playthrough to see everything as intended and get used to the
     controls and systems of Silent Hill 3. Really the final choice is left up to
     you. Please note however you don't have this option open to you in the Easy
     Action mode of the game as Heather will just not go over the edges.
    
     Oh, also if you're playing a game from "Extra New Game" then you'll skip this
     section and go straight to the next. Of course you've probably completed this
     already in that case, so you probably won't be reading this.
    
     ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
    
     LAKESIDE AMUSEMENT PARK/LAKESIDE ENTRANCE
     Once the opening sequence is over, walk forward. There is no map for this area
     so this is going to be touch and go at first.
    
     The first thing you'll want to do is access your menu and switch your weapon
     from the KNIFE to the HANDGUN, or perhaps the STEEL PIPE if your that way
     inclined. Switching to the SUB MACHINE GUN probably won't help because you'll
     run out of ammo fast. Once you reach the bench at the end, turn to the left
     and run forward a little until the camera angle shows you a doorway. Go
     through it.
    
     LAKESIDE SHOPPING
     As you enter the area you'll encounter your first enemy, a double headed dog.
     Shoot at it a few times with your handgun to take it out. There is two
     directions to go from here. From the doorway you came in, to Heather's left is
     a dead end, so follow the path to the right (where the dog should have came
     from). Most of the doors you'll pass aren't assessable, however one of them
     will allow you into the souvenir shop, but there really isn't anything inside
     anyway.
    
     Continue to follow the circular walkway around, and killing or ignoring the
     second enemy you find - a tall enemy which is called a "Closer" - until the
     camera focus' on a wall with a small sign with a lamp above it. Reading it
     will tell you it says "Mountain Coaster." Just to the very right of it is
     small door which will let you through to the next area.
    
     COASTER QUE
     In this small area you're going to have a couple more Closer's to kill or run
     past. Either way, once you're ready, just run to the far side and go through
     the gate in the middle.
    
     MOUNTAIN COASTER ENTRANCE
     In here are a few enemies. There will be another Split Head dog and a pair of
     your third enemy, called a Pendulum. These enemies will probably take more
     health off than you can spare right now while fighting, so it's best to ignore
     them and head left for the stairwell to the top of the roller coaster. Run
     down the walkway and then run up three or four flights of stairs until you
     reach the top platform, then go towards the office. The office itself will be
     locked, so use the gate to the left of the door to gain access to the tracks.
    
     MOUNTAIN COASTER
     You'll find the path to the left of the entrance blocked, so follow the track
     to the right. Avoid the edges because Heather can fall off if you're not
     careful. Walking instead of running is the key. When you get to a certain
     point a cutscene will take place and the screen will fade to black.

     Either you fell into a hole or got killed by enemies or jumped off the tracks.
     Doesn't matter how, but you let Heather die. Good for you. It's important so
     she can wake up.
    
     Either that or your now replaying the game under "Extra New Game" mode because
     this is where you start with that option, much like Next Fear also skipped the
     first small section of the original Silent Hill.
    
     Once the next couple of cutscenes are over, and you've been introduced to
     Douglas, you'll be left in the woman's bathroom of the mall. Heather doesn't
     want to talk to Doug so she'll have to escape somehow.

     EXTRA NEW GAME BONUS ITEM + 1 - HEATHER BEAM (AND SEXY BEAM)
    
     Once you've killed 333 or more enemies with standard weapons (that is no bonus
     unlimited ammo ones) in Silent Hill 3 you'll be rewarded with the Heather Beam
     weapon.
    
     This basically is an energy weapon that Heather shoots from her eyes when she
     has no other weapons equipped. It uses Heather's stamina to power it's energy,
     so it would be a good idea to finish the game in Hard-Hard at least once to
     unlock the Life/Stamina status bar in the Extra Options menu for this.
    
     The beam has two different modes which you can get. The first, energy beams,
     are easy to use from a distance as long as Heather has a target in her range,
     and will even go through solid objects. The only let down is the amount of
     time it takes to start which means it lessens it's effectiveness at close
     range. This is done by holding R2 and pressing X.
    
     The second, are octagonal blasts of energy. These bounce off walls and travel
     a lengthy distance. Again, close range is sometimes effected with these shots
     as well. To produce these blasts of energy, hold R2 and press up+X. Once
     Heather starts firing them, let go of up so Heather doesn't stand there firing
     them to the roof.
    
     To get the Sexy Beam you'll need to equip Heather's bonus costume named
     "Transform" (it's actually a key rather than a t-shirt). It will transform her
     into the "Princess Heart" and the Heather Beam will become the Sexy Beam with
     no weapons equipped. The Sexy Beam is a little quicker and more direct than
     the standard beam, and also has two different modes.
    
     The first, the standard R2+X mode, fires off several beams as well as one
     octagons at a time. The second, the R2+Up+X one, fires direct eye energy
     beams - best described as "Superman" heat beam style. You can direct the focus
     of this using the analog stick or d-pad.
    
     This weapon is also used to get the "Revenge" (UFO) ending of Silent Hill 3.
     More on that later however.
    
     ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
    
     Check out the marking on the mirror if you want to. This will allow you to
     save. Afterwards, approach the window at the back of the bathroom and press X
     and Heather will jump out.
    
     BACK ALLEY
     Both ends of this alley are blocked as you'll find out. You'll need to take
     the door you'll find part way along it back into the mall.
    
     ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
    
     EXTRA NEW GAME BONUS ITEM + 2 - UNLIMITED SUB MACHINE GUN ON REPLAY
    
     If you finished the game already and defeated the final boss with just a melee
     weapon then you would have been told of this reward during your ranking. It is
     located here. If you run to the closest end of the alley where a bunch of
     boxes are stacked you'll find it sitting on top.
    
     ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
    
     SERVICE CORRIDOR 1
     From the start of this area you'll come to a T-junction. Take the path to
     Heather's right. Follow the hallway around two corners and use the doorway
     with two doors at the very end of the hall.
    
     MALL SECTION 1
     Things have gotten slightly unusual since you were last in the mall. It looks
     like this place just needs a bit of a cleaner to wash the floors. Walk forward
     until the camera focus' on a partly open shutter which you can go through the
     doors behind.
    
     BOUTIQUE MARGUERITE CLOTHING STORE
     Once the scene is over you'll have the HANDGUN. Take the HANDGUN AMMO you'll
     find sitting on a bench to Heather's left side. In easy and normal this is 2
     boxes, in hard just 1. Once you've grabbed the ammo, go behind the desk and
     use the door you'll find.
    
     SERVICE CORRIDOR 2
     Go to the right, and then left. There will be a pinboard on Heather's left
     (you can clearly see it with the camera) which has some maps for the mall on
     it. Take the "SHOPPING MALL MAP" as you'll need it. Once you've done that,
     take the nearby exit door.
    
     STAIRWELL
     The way ahead is clearly blocked. Go up the two flights of stairs to the
     second floor, then go through the doorway you'll find there.
    
     SERVICE CORRIDOR 3
     You should hear an odd noise as you enter. This is your next enemy, the numb
     body. Walk ahead and turn the corner and it should be approaching you from a
     long hallway. Kill it with your handgun or run past it and make your way to
     the door at the far end of the long hallway.
    
     MALL SECTION 2
     Once you exit, walk towards the camera. The first store you'll come to is
     "HELEN'S BAKERY." Go inside.
    
     HELEN'S BAKERY
     Once you're inside, go to Heather's left and you'll find a pair of TONGS
     sitting on the table. Grab them then exit back into the mall.
    
     ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
    
     EXTRA NEW GAME BONUS ITEM +3 - FLAMETHROWER
    
     If you've completed the game once on Normal mode with your end rank being more
     enemies killed shooting instead of fighting then you'll find a FlameThrower
     sitting on the counter here. It has unlimited ammo as well. Check out the
     slightly edited bakery flyer sitting beneath it too. I WOULD like some crispy
     toasted dead with my new flamethrower thanks. If you don't get this weapon on
     your first playthrough, you'll get another one instead, and you'll get this
     after your second.
    
     ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
    
     MALL SECTION 2
     Go to Heather's right and return go the door leading into "SERVICE CORRIDORS
     3."
    
     SERVICE CORRIDOR 3
     Make your way down the long hallway and then take the path to the left where
     you haven't been before. Follow the path through the two bends until you reach
     where it goes off on a left angle. Just around the corner use the first door
     to Heather's right (on the map this is on the north side of the building).
    
     STOREROOM A
     In here will be another split headed dog. Kill it then grab the BEEF JERKY off
     the boxes in the top left hand corner. Leave the room.
    
     SERVICE CORRIDOR 3
     Continue up the angled hallway. Ignore the two doors in the middle of it and
     continue until  you reach the far end. Use the last door on Heather's right,
     again this is the north side of the mall map.
    
     STOREROOM B
     Grab the HEALTH DRINKS and HANDGUN BULLETS from the shelf. There is also
     another sign here which will allow you to save if you wish. Go to the back of
     the room where there will be some wooden pallets. The one on the right side of
     the room has some boxes on it, and if you check it, you'll find there is
     something stuck in it. Open your menu and select the TONGS from the Items
     menu. Heather will use them to retrieve the key stuck inside. This will be
     labeled the KEY TAKEN WITH TONGS. Once you have the key, return back out to
     the corridor.
    
     SERVICE CORRIDOR 3
     You'll now be joined by some more numb bodies. Shoot them or run past them, it
     doesn't matter. You just need to return to the "MALL SECTION 2" where you were
     earlier when you can.
    
     ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
    
     EXTRA NEW GAME BONUS ITEM +4 - BEAM SABER
    
     At the top end of the "SERVICE CORRIDOR 3" where you exited the second
     storeroom, check the door at the very end of the hallway for something odd.
     Heather will find the doorknob comes off and is actually some sort of
     lightsaber weapon! Cool!!!
    
     You'll receive this weapon if you defeated more enemies by fighting rather
     than by shooting your first time through, or just on your second play through
     if you got the other weapon instead.
    
     ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
    
     MALL SECTION 2
     Take Heather's right from where you are by the door. Run past a few stores and
     a roller gate, probably avoiding a closer who is walking around here. You'll
     arrive at a bookstore called My Bestsellers. You'll be able to get inside
     using the KEY TAKEN WITH TONGS.
    
     MY BESTSELLERS
     Run to the back of the store and you'll find some HANDGUN AMMO on the counter.
     This again changes depending on difficulty. Behind the desk you'll also find
     an exit door labeled Employees Only. Also depending on your difficulty, there
     might be a note beside this door.
    
     Return into the main part of the bookstore and check the isle on the north
     side of the store. There you will find some books on the floor. The number of
     these books will change depending on the difficulty level of the game. These
     need to be put in their right places on the shelf next to where you found
     them. When you do so, they will give you a 4 digit pass code which will unlock
     the door at the back of the store.
    
     ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
    
     PUZZLE #01 - THE BOOKSTORE BOGGLE
    
     Goal   - To receive a 4 digit passcode number for the doorway at the back of
              the room.
    
     Easy   - Clue:
              None
    
              Well not exactly like you need much of a solution here anyway, but
              here's a hint. Try putting them in order of the roman numerals on
              the books spine. You should get the 4 numbers you need scribbled
              across the spines of the books. This number is also random, so you'll
              need to do this each time you play.
    
     Normal - Clue:
              "Fair is foul, and foul is fair. Put these books out of order."
    
              The note on the door quotes a part of the beginning of Macbeth. For
              the game it's there to say the order of these books normally is not
              the correct order, but arranging them differently will give you an
              order (the pin number) which is correct.
    
              Simply put you will need to shuffle the books around into an odd
              order until the numbers written on the sides of all of the spines
              create the four digits you require. Again, these 4 digits are random
              and are required to be done each time you play on normal.
    
              One of the numbers is normally a lined number such as a 9 or a 7
              which is just on the edge of one of the spines. The 9 is particularly
              more difficult if you've never done this before, but if you're down
              to the two books that match this one number, then clearly you know
              what's going to go where.
    
     Hard   - Clue:
                "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 words 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 the last.
              Killing a nameless lover, she pierced a heart rent by sorrow.
                 Doth lie invite truth? Doth verity but wear the mask of
              falsehood? Au, thou pitiful, thou miserable ones!
                 Still amidst lies, through the end cometh not, wherefore yearn
              for death? Wilt 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 verily... In here is a tragedy---art thou player or
              audience? There is nothing which cannot become a puppet of fate or
              an onlooker, peering into the cage."
    
              Once you've gotten over the fact that you're clearly going to need
              some basic knowledge of Shakespeare to get around this one, then you
              might be on your way. If you never have then it's probably why you're
              reading this section. And no, Heather isn't much help. She only can
              remember a line from Macbeth. Most of the others she's never read.
              Seeing as I don't want to go through the entire push on this answer
              I'll leave it for the later puzzles section, however here I will
              roughly explain how you get your answer.
    
              Let's start where we should at the start. As with some other classic
              Silent Hill puzzles, the first and last paragraphs don't really mean
              anything. It's just mostly there to confuse you on your starting and
              ending points.
    
              The first words of the second paragraph ("at thy left hand") in
              this context mean we are starting from the left side of the row.
              Generally makes sense doesn't it? The remainder of this first
              section of text are all obvious references to Hamlet. So this is the
              first book in the order.
    
              The next paragraph contains clear references to Romeo And Juliet.
              I would believe this one would be the easiest to get with little
              knowledge of these works, as most people know this story these days
              than any other. So this is a good starting point for a lot of people.
    
              The next paragraph after this one I personally couldn't get because
              it's vague, but seeing as it's the only one you can't get a grip
              for and you're only left with one book in the end, then this seems
              it is supposed to represent the remaining one. More on that soon.
              (Although people have noted to me many times the black and white
               reference clearly gives this one away - I understood how once they
               told me).
    
              The following one contains more clear references thankfully, to King
              Lear. Well generally it was only the first one I understood because
              it was all I could remember. I've honestly never read King Lear, but
              I've sat through enough English classes in my life to remember
              at least something or two about it.
    
              Continuing on, the next paragraph, the remaining throne related book
              is of course Macbeth, as the reference will indeed fit. Four of five
              books are in their right places - Hamlet, Romeo and Juliet, a gap,
              King Lear and Macbeth. That just leaves Othello to go into the middle
              - giving you the numerals IV, I, V, II, and III (4, 1, 5, 2, 3).
    
              But this is 5 books, 5 numbers, and you need a 4 number code. And you
              still have of course one paragraph left. Guess we're not finished
              yet.
    
              This last paragraph is not your normal one either. It seems to cover
              some facts of things, but also involves numbers and is broken up by
              semicolons. How does it work? Well quite easily. Just ask yourself
              the following questions.
    
              - Which vengeful man spilt the blood of TWO people?
    
              It was HAMLET! So now you have two times 4 (or IV) which is 8.
    
              - Which two youths who cried for THREE people?
    
              That's ROMEO AND JULIET. 3 times 1 (or I) is 3.
    
              - What THREE witches disappeared?
    
              What about the witches from MACBETH? Take away the 3 on the end and
              you now have four numbers. With the new numbers you got from these
              questions you know have the four numbers you need for the code lock.
    
              Oh yeah, a final note. This code never changes of course... so once
              you've done the puzzle once, you'll never have to do this puzzle
              again - so long as you remember the final number that is.
    
     ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
    
     Once you have the code, return to the back of the store and try to use the
     door. Enter the code when you're shown the key pad and you'll be able to exit
     the store.
    
     SERVICE CORRIDOR 4
     Once the scene is over, follow where Claudia went and take the next two turns
     left until you reach an elevator. Push the button to call the doors open and
     then step inside.
    
     ELEVATOR
     Okay, this elevator has no buttons and the doors won't open. And now it's
     moving on it's own. You'll be able to walk around in here at first, then
     you'll hear a crackling radio start, the lift will stop, and then a RADIO will
     drop down out of nowhere. Once you collect the RADIO the doors will open. Walk
     through and another cutscene will begin as you're taken down through a new
     elevator.

     (ALTERNATE) SERVICE CORRIDOR 5
     You'll start in another service corridor, although obviously this one isn't
     quite the same as before. There are plenty of split heads in here, which you
     can hear, so watch out.
    
     The path which winds to the north of where you start is a dead end, none of
     the doors work. So run south and take the first right bend. Run straight
     ahead here to the end where there is a t-junction and go straight through
     the door ahead of you.
    
     (ALTERNATE) SICK ROOM
     Right to the... right side of Heather, there is some items sitting in the
     shelf. Grab them. Also check the desk for an AMPOULE. You can also save here
     if you need to as "one of them weird signs is sittin' on tha bed." Once
     you've grabbed everything, exit back out to the corridor.
    
     (ALTERNATE) SERVICE CORRIDOR 5
     Follow the hall up the t-junction to Heather's left. None of the doors will
     work on the way up, so just make your way to the end and exit through the
     double doors.
    
     (ALTERNATE) MALL SECTION 3
     While it may not look like it anymore, this is roughly where the game began.
     Watchout for any Closers hanging around, and look for the hallway leading
     off to the northern side. Follow the hallway until it turns to the east and
     then enter the first door you come to on Heather's left.
    
     (ALTERNATE) MAINTANCE ROOM
     There's a light actually on in this room surprisingly, which is odd for the
     alternate world. But we'll get back to that in a second. Go around the room
     collecting all of the supplies you can find. Once you've done that, check
     the note posted to the wall near where you entered the room.
    
     Lights off huh? And there's a light switch. Lets turn it off then. Woah,
     a beam of light is cast, and it's your flashlight which you find. Take it
     from where it's jammed between the boxes and Heather will automatically
     place it in her pocket. Exit the room.
    
     (ALTERNATE) MALL SECTION 3
     Continue right next door and enter the door to Heather's left, which leads
     into the woman's bathroom.
    
     ALTERNATE WOMANS BATHROOM
     At first this room seems empty apart from the BLEACH which is here in Normal
     and Hard difficulty modes only. Try the back door at the rear of the toilets.
     Knocking on it gives you a reply. If you walk away from it afterwards though
     it'll open right up. No one inside though.
    
     Exit the room and back into the hallway.
    
     ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
    
     BONUS SH2 SCENE - BLOCKED TOILET
    
     If you have a save file from Silent Hill 2, make sure it's on the same memory
     card as the one you're playing the game with. The save on the card has to have
     been the game completed at least once.
    
     If you check the already open stall in the center of the room. You'll find
     it's blocked. When you're asked if you want to unblock it, select yes, and
     watch.
    
     If you don't have the Silent Hill 2 save file, or can't be bothered finishing
     the game again, then you can see this bonus scene eventually. It will
     apparently become unlocked by itself upon replay through the "Extra New Game"
     option.
    
     ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
    
     (ALTERNATE) MALL SECTION 3
     Continue down the hall. All of the remaining doors are locked, so go to the
     end and Heather will climb under the bent metal shutter.
    
     ALTERNATE MALL SECTION 1
     And we're back in the first mall section again. And once again none of the
     doors or shutters will be open except the same one leading into the Boutique.
     Go inside.
    
     ALTERNATE BOUTIQUE MARGUERITE CLOTHING STORE
     No enemies here this time, just more items. At the end of the room hanging
     alongside the clothing is a BULLETPROOF VEST. You can equip this now to take
     less damage if you'd like, but it will slow you down. If you check the empty
     clothing rack just near to where you entered as well you'll find a metal
     clothing HANGER sitting on it which you can take. Once you've done this exit
     back the way you came.
    
     ALTERNATE MALL SECTION 1
     Return to the "MALL SECTION 3" through the bent shutter.
    
     (ALTERNATE) MALL SECTION 3
     Run down the hallway and back into the large area where you first entered this
     part of the mall. Across from where you entered there, at the northwestern end
     of the mall strip you'll find another door you can access which will lead you
     inside the Happy Burger where Heather was sleeping earlier on.
    
     ALTERNATE HAPPY BURGER
     Run inside and check the table where Heather was sitting earlier on (it's the
     one beside the "window") and the camera angle should change to show you there
     is a ladder in the roof above the table. Point yourself towards the ladder
     (and the table) and go into your inventory and select the HANGER from your
     list, so Heather will use it to pull the ladder down.
    
     Once the ladder is down press X to climb onto the ladder and then push up to
     make Heather climb. Eventually you'll be on the second floor.
    
     (ALTERNATE) MALL SECTION 4
     Walk forward and check out the beds sitting infront of you. That's odd, what
     are they doing here? Beside the beds are some escalators going up and down.
     The down ones are a dead end, and I do mean dead because if you fall off them
     in any mode other than normal it's game over. The ones leading up go to the
     third floor. But I'll get to them soon enough.
    
     Continue forwards until you hear static. It's coming from the TV on the far
     side of the escalators. Walk up to it and press X to check out what going on.
    
     Wait. That couldn't be? No! Oh well, nevermind.
    
     If you check around the corner from here the hissing TV you'll find some more,
     one of which has one of those signs on it allowing you to save. Do so if you
     want to then track back to the escalators and walk up to the top and to the
     third floor.
    
     (ALTERNATE) MALL SECTION 5
     Once you reach the top you might have some enemies to deal with. If you check
     the back of the main mall area you'll find a door with has some writing on it.
     It seems you require a stone of some sort to unlock it. Remember this because
     we'll be back here.
    
     Return back towards the escalators and you'll see there is a door to the left
     of the escalators which is slightly ajar and light is coming through it. Use
     it.
    
     (ALTERNATE) "MAY LEE CHINESE KITCHEN" RESTAURANT
     Walk around the tables and chairs until you come to the single table with the
     barbecued dog on it. Check it out and when Heather is done commenting on it
     (with no ill-written jokes even!) you'll find there is a key inside the dog.
     The COOKED KEY to be exact.
    
     Take the key then check behind the counter/bar for some extra items. Once
     you've grabbed them you can ignore the single door at the back, and instead
     exit the way you came in.
    
     (ALTERNATE) MALL SECTION 5
     Head back down the escalators.
    
     (ALTERNATE) MALL SECTION 4
     Just to Heather's left as she comes down the escalators, and also to the left
     of the TV you checked out before is a doorway you can use. Do so.
    
     (ALTERNATE) BOUTIQUE "A"
     Another clothing boutique, this one is populated by some Numb Bodies. Shoot
     them, then take the items sitting on the back counter and unlock the door
     right at the rear of the store. Go through it.
    
     ALTERNATE SERVICE CORRIDOR 4
     And we're back into this corridor. Once again you need to follow the service
     corridor along to the end where the elevator is. There will be a Closer
     lurking around in here too so watch out. Once you reach the elevator, check
     the door on the right side of the main hallway. It should lead you inside
     another store.
    
     (ALTERNATE) CATEDRAL JEWELERY STORE
     Grab the WALNUT off the display to the side of the room. There isn't anything
     else in here, so return back to the "SERVICE CORRIDOR 4".
    
     ALTERNATE SERVICE CORRIDOR 4
     Walk back to the end where you started, but look for the path that diverts off
     towards the east of the mall. At the end of this small bit will be a door that
     you can use the COOKED KEY on.
    
     (ALTERNATE) CAFE PARADISE NOON
     Just to the left of where you enter is a shelf with some items on it. Grab
     them then make your way to the end of the counter where you'll find some steam
     coming out of a cracked pipe on the wall. Check it and you'll get the STEEL
     PIPE. Move around the front of the room and then exit out the double doors.
    
     ALTERNATE MALL SECTION 2
     You'll find some enemies roaming around in here so avoid them or take them
     out. Watch out in the center of the room if your not playing on Easy because
     you can fall off into the middle of the mall and it'll be game over. Make
     your way around to the east side of the section and go to the double orange
     doors which were originally "HELEN'S BAKERY."
    
     ALTERNATE HELEN'S BAKERY
     The counter is gone now so you can get through to the kitchen room in the
     back. In Normal and Hard, grab the DETERGENT off the sink just after you enter
     the room. Continue through the room and exit to the next hallway.
    
     (ALTERNATE) SERVICE CORRIDOR 6
     Follow the hallway towards the sound and you'll find it's a fan. If you're
     playing on Normal or Hard puzzle difficulty then use the switch on the fan to
     turn it off before continuing. Exit through the green door on the left side of
     the fan.
    
     (ALTERNATE) SERVICE CORRIDOR 7
     Another long service corridor, so move ahead.
    
     If you're playing on Easy puzzle difficulty, then you won't have to worry
     about this next couple of paragraphs because your path isn't blocked. Continue
     below this next puzzle.
    
     ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
    
     PUZZLE #02 - BUG BLOCKED
    
     Normal - You'll find you path is blocked by flying insects. What you need to
     & Hard   do is go back towards to door you used to enter here, but you'll
              notice a bucket in the corner. Go into your inventory and combine the
              BLEACH with the DETERGENT and use them, and a cutscene will take
              place. They mix to create a insecticide.
    
              Switch the fan back on then you can go back into the "SERVICE
              CORRIDOR 7" and you'll find all of the insects are dead.
    
     ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
    
     Once you've gotten through continue to follow the corridor. Ignore the first
     two doors on Heather's left, and then a green one on her right side as you
     turn a corner. Look out for the next door, a light tan one, on the same side
     of the hallway though because it leads to another store room.
    
     (ALTERNATE) STOREROOM C
     In here you'll find some items on the shelf as well as some BEEF JERKY sitting
     on the boxes on the opposite side of the room. Once you've grabbed everything
     exit the room.
    
     (ALTERNATE) SERVICE CORRIDOR 7
     Continue to follow the corridor until you reach a t-junction. The path to the
     west is dead ends and blocked doors, so go east and you'll find there is only
     two doors to choose from - a green one and an orange one. The green one
     doesn't work, so the orange one it is.
    
     (ALTERNATE) STORE
     No idea what this store is supposed to be, but it's empty anyway. Well if you
     don't count the enemies inside. Kill them or avoid them, either way make your
     exit through the front doors.
    
     (ALTERNATE) MALL SECTION 6
     Watch out! There is Pendulums about! Sorry... just had to do that.
    
     Anyway avoid the enemies in this area, as well as the various holes and ledges
     and make your way along to the western end of this area. Once you get through
     the narrow path in the center of the large area, you'll find a double door on
     the north wall, with a big bloody smear to the right. Use this doorway.
    
     (ALTERNATE) SPORTS SHOP
     I somehow get the feeling there is no way you would guess what this store
     would be normally because it doesn't look like a sports shop to me. :) Anyway,
     there is another one of the save spots on the back wall in this room if you
     need it. Check the  bed over on the opposite side of the room and you'll find
     there is a rusted vise sitting on it. Use the WALNUT on it to get the
     MOONSTONE, then exit back into the mall.
    
     (ALTERNATE) MALL SECTION 6
     Continue westwards until you reach a single orange doorway which you'll need
     to unlock. It'll lead you back into the "ALTERNATE MALL SECTION 2."
    
     ALTERNATE MALL SECTION 2
     Make you way back around the outside of the room. More enemies are in here
     now, so watch out. Return to the Cafe.
    
     (ALTERNATE) CAFE PARADISE NOON
     Go through the cafe and exit through the doorway at the back.
    
     ALTERNATE SERVICE CORRIDOR 4
     Return back through the nearby door and into the clothing shop.
    
     (ALTERNATE) BOUTIQUE "A"
     Run through the store and exit out the front doorway.
    
     (ALTERNATE) MALL SECTION 4
     Go around to the escalators and head up to the third floor.
    
     (ALTERNATE) MALL SECTION 5
     Run forward to the door I had you inspect earlier on. Open up your inventory
     and select the Moonstone and Heather will place it in the doorway. It will
     unlock, giving you access to the next section of the mall.
    
     (ALTERNATE) MALL SECTION 7
     Nothing much in here. Just run around the outside of the area to the western
     side of the room and you'll find a pathway which leads into the center of the
     mall. At the end will be a ladder which you can climb down. Once you get so
     far down the ladder the game will take over and load up a cutscene.
    
     ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
    
     BOSS #1 - SPLITWORM
    
     Welcome to your first boss fight. This fight is a little easier than it looks
     so don't sweat it. As mentioned in the profile near the start of this guide,
     if you played the original Silent Hill then you'll know how this works - you
     can only do damage to the worm when it's maw is open and it's mouth is
     showing.
    
     Once you've shot it a couple of times in the mouth then it'll move back into
     the tunnel it came out of and then move to one of the other five in the area.
     You'll need to repeat this action of shooting when prone, then waiting for it
     to move again until you can shoot it once more.
    
     Attacks consist of knocking into you, occasionally biting you, slamming the
     ground to make shockwaves, and if you don't shoot it or end up reloading your
     gun, it will slide right out of the hole (and slide right over you if you're
     in it's way) and into a hole on the other side of the room. To target where
     the worm is coming from hold L2 on the controller and Heather will stay
     locked on to the correct hole in the wall. Once it's on it's way out you can
     then let go.
    
     On easy the worm stays out for a lengthy amount of time, allowing you to get
     several shots off and basically killing it all in one go. On normal you'll
     have to do as was mentioned earlier on, and on Hard you'll have to make sure
     your shots count because you won't get a long chance to shoot at it's open
     mouth. If you have the sub machine gun with unlimited ammo as well, this fight
     will become ridiculously easy as each bullet counts like one handgun shot and
     speed cuts through it in no time. Not to mention it's a large target.
    
     Additionally on Hard you should watch out because if it gets the ability to
     try and snap at you (you can tell when it'll do this because it roars and
     pulls back into the hole briefly just before launching out), if he gets
     Heather then she'll die even at full health. Generally the only reason it'll
     have for doing this is if Heather takes a break to reload and you're standing
     directly in front of it, so make sure you do it for her manually instead and
     stand slightly off to the side while fighting.
    
     Once it's been defeated you'll be returned to the "real" world.

     MALL SECTION 8
     This area is empty, so look around the outside of the paths for the large
     shutter which is partly opened. On the map it's the one on the west side.
     Well to be exact once the cutscene is over you will probably be more or less
     looking right at it, but anyway. Go through.
    
     MALL SECTION 3
     Back into this section of the mall. It's nice and clean now though, but none
     of the stores are assessable but one - Happy Burger, right near the doors at
     the far end from where you entered. The shutter is half way up and the doors
     open, so go inside.
    
     HAPPY BURGER
     Back to where Heather woke up from that crazy nightmare at the start of the
     game. You'll find some HANDGUN AMMO and a FIRST AID KIT sitting on the benches
     near the counter. If you want to save, there is a menu sitting near this which
     has one of the save points on it. Finally, there is also some BEEF JERKY
     sitting on a chair near the back of the seating in here. Once you've grabbed
     everything, exit back into the mall.
    
     MALL SECTION 3
     Use the two sets of glass doors just beside the Happy Burger where the
     escalators are and once you're through a cutscene will take place.
    
     SUBWAY ENTRANCE
     Run ahead around the corner, and follow the hall along. Then when the path
     splits, take the path to the right and through the single doorway.
    
     SUBWAY CONCOURSE
     Run ahead to reach the open concourse area. The easiest way to do this with no
     map yet, is to take the left as soon as you can and then you should pass a
     pinboard on the wall and then arrive at the ticket gates. Before you go
     through the open gate near the booth, go along side the booth itself and
     follow the wall until you reach 3 green ticket machines. If you check the 3rd
     from the left, you'll find a news paper describing an unusual suicide at the
     train tracks here.
    
     Once you've read the paper, return to the ticket gates and make your way
     through to the other side. As soon as you get past the booth, check right
     around to the left of it and you'll find the "SUBWAY MAP" on the wall. If you
     check the map you'll find there are three stairwells leading away from the
     concourse. One to the north, one to the south, and one to the east. The
     platform that Heather wants to arrive at is Platform #3 - Bergen Street, in
     a the most obvious reference to Jacob's Ladder. But it's not going to be easy
     to get there.
    
     Before we continue on the right path there is an additional sequence you can
     see if you take the right path.
    
     ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
    
     ADDITIONAL SCENE + ITEMS
    
     This is the reason for reading the paper on the ticket machines, and is an
     optional task if you want to do it. From the concourse, take the south
     stairwell down to the next level. If you look at the map, you'll see Platform
     4 is the closest platform, and this is the one we want to go down to. So
     follow the stairs down. When you reach the split stairwell, you'll find an
     occult magazine sitting on the floor. Read it and it'll tell you a story about
     spirits inhabiting places they died. Once you've read that take the either set
     of the next stairs down to Platform #4.
    
     Walk along the platform and a cutscene will take place from someone else's
     viewpoint. Heather will be pushed onto the train tracks and you'll have a
     limited amount of time to climb back up onto the tracks before a train arrives
     and runs you over. Should you make it back onto the tracks, you'll find some
     item(s) are waiting for you on one of the seats here. Take them and return all
     the way back up to the concourse to continue on to the Bergen Street platform.
    
     Of course, if you avoid reading the newspaper, then the scene won't happen.
     But depending on the game level the items might still be there for you to
     collect anyway. It's actually good not to read the paper if you don't want the
     scene to slow you down. You can also skip the occult magazine should you want
     to - the scene only needs you to read the paper to work. Thanks to solitudinal
     for noting this to me.
    
     ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
    
     When you're ready to go, take the stairs leading downstairs on the east side
     of the concourse.
    
     SUBWAY PLATFORM #1-2 ENTRANCE
     Once you're at the bottom of the stairs, head north until you reach the gates
     for Platform's #1 & #2, and go through the only open one, leading down to
     Platform #1.
    
     (ALTERNATE) PLATFORM #1-2 NORTH
     Err... it's not quite normal in here anymore. You'll be under attack from some
     split head dogs too. Cross the platform to Platform 2 on the east side of the
     map and take the stairs down on the south side of the platform.
    
     PLATFORM #1-4 ENTRANCE
     Once you're down the stairs you'll find the path you could have taken to
     Platform 3 is blocked by rubbish, but you will find a NUTCRACKER here. Grab it
     then continue back upstairs.
    
     (ALTERNATE) PLATFORM #1-2 NORTH
     Once you're up on the platform itself again, watch out for any more enemies
     around, but cross to the other side again where you came, but instead of
     taking the stairs back up just yet, take the Platform #1 stairs leading down
     (the ones on the south side of Platform #1).
    
     PLATFORM #1-4 ENTRANCE
     Down here you'll find more junk, and a body, block the way but there are some
     ammo and health items to collect. Do so then go back up to the platform.
    
     (ALTERNATE) PLATFORM #1-2 NORTH
     Run around to the north side stairs, and return to the entrance.
    
     SUBWAY PLATFORM #1-2 ENTRANCE
     Follow the hallways to the south to the entrances at the other end. This time
     both gates are locked, but the gate on the east side has a chain wrapped
     around it. Use the NUTCRACKER on the chain and you'll be able to open the
     gate. Go through it and take the stairs down.
    
     (ALTERNATE) PLATFORM #1-2 SOUTH
     This side of the platform has railings, so you can't move beyond the track.
     But if you go to the south a little from the stairs, you'll find a single
     subway train car with it's doors open. If you step inside you'll find SHOTGUN
     SHELLS on the seat in the back, and further up ahead a partially unwrapped
     gift to use them with - a SHOTGUN. Once you grab it your radio will go all
     static, meaning something has arrived.
    
     Exit the train and walk towards the stairs you arrived on and an Insane Cancer
     will be waiting. Shoot it dead or ignore it and run to the northern end of
     this part of the platform, then take the stairs on the north side down to the
     next area. Also note, in hard - there will be 2 Insane Cancer's located near
     the stairs.
    
     PLATFORM #1-4 ENTRANCE
     Back down here again, except this time your path isn't blocked by rubbish.
     Follow the hallway west, then at the should-be split, to the north. Ignore the
     first turn off to the east, it leads down to Platform #4, and instead head
     down the second one you come across which will take you to Platform #3.
    
     PLATFORM #3 - EAST
     Run to the eastern most end of the platform, and when you're by the wall a
     camera angle will show you there is a doorway just along the tracks. Hop onto
     the tracks and check the door. You'll hear a train whistle, and some of the
     split headed dogs will join you for company. Pull out your strongest weapon
     (first time through it's probably your shotgun, but replays might have given
     you a better weapon) and kill them quickly so you can climb up onto the tracks
     before the train arrives. If you don't succeed then it'll be game over.
    
     In hard it seems Team Silent decided to be nice for once, and you won't have
     to kill the dogs first (which is good, because on this level you couldn't do
     it and make it onto the platform in time). Instead, just run to the platform
     ignoring the dogs, and try to climb up and the cutscene should take place.
    
     Once the cutscene is over, you'll probably be asking where the open doorway
     is. They've made it difficult for you by putting the open door at the western
     most end of the platform. Head west and unlock the gate to go through to the
     next section.
    
     PLATFORM #3 - CENTRAL
     Kill the dogs running around in here, then take the stairs up at the end of
     the platform, so you can reach the eastern end of Platform #3. Run up the
     stairs and across the small bit at the top, then back down the stairs again.
    
     PLATFORM #3 - WEST
     Grab the HEALTH DRINK off the first bench seat on the backwall then go to the
     very last train door at the western end. Walk into the train and a cutscene
     will take place.
    
     TRAIN CAR #1
     Now we're moving. You can exit out the blue door to the end of the train
     behind where you start, but it'll just take you to the back of the car as it
     passes down the tunnel. If you move forward from here instead of turning
     around and going back into the car, you'll get a cutscene where Heather tries
     to jump off the back and dies.
    
     In the car itself, you'll find another save spot in a bloody mark on the
     floor. Save here if you want to, then go into the next train car.
    
     TRAIN CAR #2
     Walk forward and you'll find an enemy or three in here. Once they're dead or
     you've avoided them, go through to the next train car.
    
     TRAIN CAR #3
     An empty black train car. It's worth noting here I guess that if you try to go
     back to a previous car... well, you'll see for yourself. Just keep in mind
     what I said about walking off the edge though. When you're ready, enter train
     car #4.
    
     TRAIN CAR #4
     You'll have a larger sized Numb Body waddling it's way towards you now so
     shoot it down then continue through the train car and exit to car #5.
    
     TRAIN CAR #5
     Run ahead and half way down the car on the left side, you'll find a FIRST AID
     KIT and some SHOTGUN SHELLS sitting on a seat by the doors. Grab them and go
     through to car #6.
    
     TRAIN CAR #6
     Just to Heather's right as you enter will be some HANDGUN AMMO sitting on the
     seat. Grab the ammo then continue through the car to the next.
    
     TRAIN CAR #7
     Continue through this car as well, and to #8. Depending on the difficulty
     level, there may be an enemy in here - and Insane Cancer.
    
     TRAIN CAR #8
     Continue through this car as well, and to #9.
    
     TRAIN CAR #9
     Once you're in this car, a cutscene will take place and the train will stop.
     Once the scene is over, check the front door of the car and Heather will
     comment on how there doesn't seem to any place for a conductor to have been
     driving from. Spooky.
    
     PLATFORM (UNKNOWN STATION)
     Exit the train through the open doorway and straight ahead you'll see a save
     spot on the wall. Save if you want to, then follow the wall to the left from
     the save spot until you reach a doorway.

     UNDERPASS STAIRWELL/AREA A
     Run down the stairs until you reach the bottom path. We're going to have to do
     this first section with no map to begin with, so you're going to have to make
     sure you follow these instructions well.
    
     At the bottom of the stairs, the direction to the left is clearly blocked by a
     fence, so go right and follow the long hallway and go through the doorway at
     the end.
    
     ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
    
     EXTRA NEW GAME BONUS
    
     When you replay the game with the Extra New Game option, certain sections of
     the walls in the underpass here will change as you make your way into the area
     in real time, and then change back at certain other points. This doesn't
     happen the first time you play the game, only on replays as mentioned.
    
     ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
    
     UNDERPASS AREA B - WEST
     The path to the right is a dead end here, so go to the left. You'll probably
     find many enemies through here on your way, but look out for a blue door
     along the wall on Heather's right side. Go through it.
    
     UNDERPASS AREA C
     Go straight ahead along the hallway until you come to an intersection which
     consists of a path left, a path straight ahead, and a blue doorway to the
     right. Take the blue door.
    
     UNDERPASS AREA D
     There will be some Numb Bodies walking around in here. Follow the path
     straight ahead until you reach a split where the path goes left as well as
     continues ahead. The path ahead is a dead end, so take the path to the left.
    
     UNDERPASS STOREROOM
     Check the bloodied locker sitting on it's sized for a spiked MAUL, a new melee
     weapon to the world of Silent Hill. It isn't particularly that great however,
     so I won't be surprised if you find little use for it. And finally, on the
     wall just to the left of it, is the "UNDERPASS MAP" we've been wanting. Check
     it out to see where you've come from. Also check the shelves on the other side
     of the storeroom for an AMPOULE in the easy action mode. Once you've grabbed
     everything, exit through the door on the south side of the room (the door you
     haven't been through yet).
    
     UNDERPASS AREA E
     Woah, massive Numb Body at 12 o'clock. Kill or avoid it and any others around
     and ignore the path going off to the east for now. Use the first blue door on
     the west wall.
    
     UNDERPASS AREA F
     Run to the end of the hallway and check the boxes at the end for an empty WINE
     BOTTLE, and check the crate to the right of that for some items. Once you've
     grabbed it all, return to "AREA E" of the underpass.
    
     UNDERPASS AREA E
     Once you're back in here, continue to the south and then follow the hallway
     westward. At the very end you'll find some SHOTGUN SHELLS sitting on the
     barrel. Once you've grabbed them, return back to the area where the path went
     to the east you passed just before. Follow it to it's end and go through the
     large metal doorway to the next section of the underpass.
    
     UNDERPASS AREA G
     Run ahead for a while until you see a blue door on the north side wall (on
     Heather's left). There is also a couple of enemies in here to kill or avoid,
     but either way make your way through the doorway.
    
     UNDERPASS AREA H
     Just a loooong tunnel here. Run straight ahead to the far end and exit the
     door at the end.
    
     UNDERPASS AREA B - EAST
     Where you exit will have 3 paths. One west, one north, one east. The paths to
     the west and north are both dead ends, so go east until you reach another
     split there. At this split, the path to the north is clearly a dead end
     (seeing as the blocking fence is basically right beside you), so go south and
     through the large metal door there.
    
     UNDERPASS AREA I
     This next area has one long corridor with three exits. Two of these are off
     short corridors leading towards the west, while the third is a large door at
     the southern end. Ignore the door at the southern end because it just leads
     into a room with nothing but enemies. As for the two corridors, I'll refer to
     them as they are positioned on the map. Corridor North (the first you will
     pass) and Corridor South (the second you can pass).
    
     North leads to a generator room, but the generator won't work until it has
     fuel. South leads to an control room where there are items to collect, so go
     to the south corridor first and use the doorway at the end there.
    
     UNDERPASS CONTROL ROOM
     There are plenty of items in here, but the amounts and items themselves will
     change depending on which action difficulty you're playing. On the desk after
     you enter are some ammo, and near the save point on the north wall, the desk
     has health drink(s). Near the save point is a large heater which seems to have
     some kerosene in it. Use the empty WINE BOTTLE on it and you'll get the
     kerosene, and create the OIL-FILLED BOTTLE. Once you have all this, save if
     you want to, then exit the room.
    
     UNDERPASS AREA I
     Run back into the main part of "AREA I" then use the Corridor North to get
     into the generator room.
    
     UNDERPASS GENERATOR
     Run around the barrier to the main generator and go up to where the red and
     green lights are. When you're there use the kerosene in the OIL-FILLED BOTTLE
     to fuel the generator up then flick the switch at the other end of the
     generator to make it work. You'll be asked if you want to lift the hoist, so
     say yes and you'll be shown it working. Now that is done, follow the path to
     the north side of the room where you'll find a ladder leading down. If you
     came here before using the generator, then you'll have found the hole full of
     water. But now you've used it, it's empty. Read what Heather has to say about
     it all, then go down the ladder.
    
     SEWER SECTION A
     Exit the square room up the stairwell on the east side of the room, and then
     up the set of rusted metal stairs in the next area. Exit the room through the
     blue door.
    
     SEWER BRIDGE 1
     Run along the hall and across the bridge, then down the four sets of stairs,
     and exit through the blue door at the bottom.
    
     SEWER SECTION B
     This is the main part of this sewer section, but there isn't much to it. You
     can jump into the ditch in the middle if you need to, but there really isn't
     any reason to. Follow the sewer to the south as far as you can and you'll find
     another blue door along the east wall. Go through it.
    
     SEWER BRIDGE 2
     Go up the four sets of stairs and across the bridge. Did you see something
     underneath the bridge? Didn't seem to be moving, so it can't be that
     important. Go through the door at the end.
    
     GARBAGE DUMP
     Check the stool sitting in the middle of the room and you'll find a DRYER that
     Heather will unplug. Also if you check the shelf near the back wall you'll
     find an AMPOULE. Once you've grabbed everything, exit the way you came.
    
     SEWER BRIDGE 2
     Make your way across the bridge. Hmm... odd, that thing in the water seems to
     have disappeared. Go down the stairs and exit back into the sewer.
    
     SEWER SECTION B
     Walk around the outside to the south (or just go across the ditch in the
     middle) so you can reach the doorway on the east side across from where you
     exited. Go through the large metal doorway.
    
     SEWER SECTION C
     Run forward and kill any enemies around here if you want. The path splits to
     the north and south, but the south path doesn't go anywhere, as the door is
     broken. Go north and use the small blue door to the east side.
    
     SEWER OFFICE
     Another save point is in here, this one is on the floor. You might also find a
     HEALTH DRINK sitting on the table. Also check the piece of paper on the floor
     in front of the Health Drink. Once you're finished, exit through the metal
     door on the east side of the room.
    
     SEWER BRIDGE 3
     Firstly, don't try to cross the narrow bridge just yet. If you do it'll be a
     game over as something grabs onto Heather's foot and drags her into the water.
     You might remember something similar as this happening to Harry in the
     original Silent Hill, where some sort of tentacle thing dragged him into a
     fridge if you didn't use the right item. Same thing applies here.
    
     Just to the right of the door you came through, you'll find a power outlet on
     the wall. Go into your inventory and use the DRYER here and Heather will chuck
     it into the water, frying whatever was in there. You'll now be able to walk
     across the bridge and exit through the "exit" door on the other side.

     EXTRA NEW GAME BONUS +5 & +6 - GOLD AND SILVER PIPES
    
     In the Extra New Game replay, go to the sides of the pool and press X and
     you'll be asked if you wish to drop the steel pipe into the pool. If you
     select yes, you'll be approached by a woman carrying a gold and silver pipe.
     If you answer the questions honestly, you'll be rewarded with both the gold
     and silver pipes as well as keeping your steel pipe. If you answer with a lie,
     then you'll not gain either pipes and loose your steel one as well.
    
     The woman is supposed to be a representation of the Mercury, the Roman god of
     trade (& profit) as well as merchants and travelers. It's clear to say
     Heather and this event fit that quite well. The reason for this event seems
     to be derived from one of Aesop's Fables, titled "Mercury and the Workmen."
     You can read the fable here:
    
     http://www.aesopfables.com
     http://www.pacificnet.net/~johnr/cgi/aesop1.cgi?3&MercuryandtheWorkmen
    
     This fable isn't the first time the idea has appeared in videogame form, as
     many people have noted - the same idea was used in Zelda: Link To The Past on
     the GBA, and Harvest Moon. The pipes themselves don't seem to give any extra
     powers, much as Heather notes. Too bad there are no vampires or werewolves
     around though, or else that silver pipe might have come in handy. :p
    
     Many thanks to Blue Phoenix at the Dark Legacy forums for this tidbit of info
     on the source of the scene. And mexiun at GameFAQ's for mentioning Harvest
     Moon.
    
     ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
    
     SEWER SECTION D
     Follow the hallway directly south and exit through the blue door at the end.
     There is a path leading east part way along, but it's exit is blocked by boxes
     and oil drums.
    
     SEWER SECTION E
     The path to both the east and the west are dead ends, so jump into the ditch
     and go across to southern side where there is another path leading off to the
     south. Watch out as well because there will be many Pendulums in this area.
     Follow the southern path to it's end, and then take the smaller walkway
     leading towards the west nearby. Go through the blue doorway you'll find at
     it's end.
    
     SEWER SECTION F
     Run down the four sets of stairs and then along the long hallway, until you
     reach the next set of four stairs you need to climb back up. Go through the
     doorway.
    
     SEWER SECTION G
     Finally the sewer part is nearly done. Walk forward and follow the stairs
     around the outside of the room up to the floor above. Here you'll find a
     ladder which you can use to exit the sewers.

     * The rope can only be gained after getting the screwdriver in these modes,
       which should explain why these numbers aren't in their correct list order.
       In Easy Puzzle the desk is already opened for you to take the rope straight
       away.
    
     OUTSIDE CONSTRUCTION
     From the manhole, follow the path around the outside of the building. You'll
     come to an area where you'll find another save spot sitting on top of an oil
     drum. Save if you want to, then check behind you to see a pair of doors
     leading inside the construction site. Use them.
    
     CONSTRUCTION 1ST FLOOR
     Follow the hallway around, ignoring the doors (they're all broken) until you
     reach the wider area. There might be some HEALTH DRINKS sitting on some
     cardboard boxes here depending on which difficulty level you're playing.
     The elevator won't work of course because the power is off, so go through the
     doorway leading into the stairwell instead.
    
     CONSTRUCTION STAIRWELL
     Now for the task of stair climbing. Make your way up all the flights of stairs
     to the fifth floor (the top floor). Why the fifth? Because it's the only other
     door you can access in here. Once you're there, go through the door.
    
     CONSTRUCTION 5TH FLOOR
     Not much in this hallway, or the attached bathroom either. Walk to the end of
     the hallway and go through the single green door there.
    
     CONSTRUCTION 5TH FLOOR ROOM
     Enter the room, and check the makeshift box-table in the center for some
     HANDGUN AMMO. If you then walk around the mattress in the middle, and go
     across the wooden boards making a makeshift walkway, you'll find a HEALTH
     DRINK sitting on a box nearby.
    
     ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
    
     EXTRA ITEM - SILENCER
    
     If you check the wall just around the corner from where you entered the room
     here on the 5th floor, you'll notice a patch of the wall which is different
     looking than the rest of the wall. Equip your maul and smash it against the
     wall a few times as hard as you can and it'll break the wall. In it you'll
     find a SILENCER for your handgun or sub machine gun.
    
     Clearly the whole discolored wall hiding something, as well as the Silencer
     item itself, would seem to be Metal Gear Solid references. Nice job. :) There
     is also someone buried in the wall too, just for that Silent Hill touch. Guess
     it must have been the person who was staying/squatting here.
    
     ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
    
     Once you're finished up here, check the mattress in the middle of the room and
     Heather will push it down into the hole in the floor. Once you've done that,
     just walk into the hole and Heather will drop down two floors.
    
     CONSTRUCTION 3RD FLOOR ROOM
     The door here is locked, and probably wouldn't lead anywhere even if it was
     open. You need to check the walls at the other end of the room for a hole on
     the wall, near a window, leading outside onto some scaffolding. Once you've
     found it, walk out onto it.
    
     OUTSIDE CONSTRUCTION 2
     Walk around the outside, but watch out for any enemies around. The walkway
     should lead you around a corner, and once you reach the right end of it,
     you'll find you can climb through a window into the building next door.
    
     SMALL OFFICE
     Nothing to see or do in here, so leave through the door.
    
     STORE FRONT POSEABLES
     Walk down the hallway and around the corner until you see a door on Heather's
     left with purple writing on it. Remember this doorway because we'll be back
     here. Continue down the hallway to the end where there is two doors. The one
     to Heather's left is Storage Room 1, and it's not assessable. But the one
     in front is. Go inside.
    
     STORAGE ROOM 2
     Ever since SH2 I haven't felt that good around mannequins anymore. This
     doesn't help things any. Check around the back of the middle shelf, at the end
     of the row for some SHOTGUN SHELLS, or HANDGUN BULLETS. Grab them, check out
     anything else which may interest you, then exit the way you came in here.
    
     STORE FRONT POSEABLES
     That door with the writing I made you take note of... go back to it and use
     it.
    
     CENTRAL 3RD FLOOR
     Run straight ahead and into the Dance Studio directly opposite the door you
     just came through. Watch out for any enemies about though.
    
     MONICA'S DANCE STUDIO
     Might as well start at the opposite end of the hallway. Run towards the camera
     until the angle changes and the door at the end is displayed. Go through it.
    
     LOCKER ROOM
     Check the open locker for a FIRST AID KIT and AMPOULE, or HEALTH DRINKS. Grab
     them then exit the room back into the hallway.
    
     MONICA'S DANCE STUDIO
     The next door up you can't open, so go to the next one which was basically
     across from where you entered.
    
     MONICA'S OFFICE
     Grab the HANDGUN AMMO off the desk then check the small coffee table for a
     folded up map of the "HILLTOP CENTER" where you are. Finally. There is a save
     point on the poster on the wall as well if you need it.
    
     The next part will change depending on what difficulty level you're on. If you
     check the desk near the save point, you'll find the desk draw is stuck shut,
     and you'll need to get something to open it. Of course if you're playing on
     Easy however, the draw is already wide open for you to take the item inside, a
     ROPE. If you're not playing on Easy, don't worry - I will remind you about
     collecting this. Exit back out into the hallway.
    
     MONICA'S DANCE STUDIO
     There is no point heading into the large room at the top of this area, it's
     empty apart from some enemies. Exit back out into the center of the floor.
    
     CENTRAL 3RD FLOOR
     Run into the middle, then follow the hallway to the north. The elevators on
     either side aren't operational, but the one to the west side seems to be
     slightly open. Keep that in mind. Use the single door you'll find at the back
     to enter the stairwell.
    
     STAIRWELL
     Out in the stairwell, you'll find most of the doors are locked should you go
     check. The only open doorway apart from where you entered is the one leading
     into the 5th floor, so that's where you need to go.
    
     CENTRAL 5TH FLOOR
     Run past the lifts until the path splits east and west again. The single door
     at the end of the western end is locked. This door leads into KMN Auto Parts.
     The eastern end has three doors, two leading into the Gallery of Fine Arts -
     of which one is locked, and one which leads - again - into KMN Auto Parts.
     Take the double doors on the left leading into the gallery first.
    
     GALLERY OF FINE ARTS
     Check out some of the pictures around the walls, but take special note of the
     description of the missing painting. Once you're finished browsing, go through
     the single door right at the back (the one to the office doesn't work).
    
     GALLERY HALLWAY
     The path splits off to two here, and the path to Heather's left (the north)
     has some boxes at the end. Here, on all difficulties but Easy puzzle, a
     SCREWDRIVER will be sitting. You'll need this upstairs to pry open the draw
     which contains the rope mentioned earlier. The doors beside this box aren't
     openable, so continue back to the rest of the hallway.
    
     The next three doors won't work, but when the camera changes to a long view
     point of the last of the hallway, take note that besides the door right at the
     end, there is another door to Heather's right - on the west side of the
     hallway. Go inside.
    
     GALLERY STOREROOM
     Check the shelf at the back of the room for the KATANA. Now you have this,
     should you want to do any fighting without guns, I suggest this weapon above
     all other melee weapons. Exit the room.
    
     GALLERY HALLWAY
     The last remaining doorway doesn't work, so you'll need to backtrack into the
     gallery.
    
     GALLERY OF FINE ARTS
     Run through the gallery and out into the center of the floor.
    
     CENTRAL 5TH FLOOR
     Now you can use the door across from you to access KMN Auto Parts.
    
     KMN AUTO PARTS
     You can basically ignore all the doors until you reach a point where the
     hallway splits, because they don't work. Where they split there is a wooden
     door which goes to a room which doesn't seem at all important - except maybe
     it looks like it has medical degrees on the wall - which is odd for an Auto
     Parts place. The two other doors directly ahead of where you were originally
     facing don't go anywhere, so take the short hallway to the north.
    
     The single door on the east side goes back out to the center of the 5th floor.
     The first door on the west side is the one you want to use. You can ignore the
     rest of this hallway because the remaining doors don't work - so just go
     through the one that does.
    
     AUTO PARTS OFFICE
     Firstly, grab any normal items you find in here. Then check the metal shelf at
     the south-west corner of the room to find a car JACK you can take. Once you've
     done that, exit the room.
    
     KMN AUTO PARTS
     Unlock and use the door directly across from you to return to the center of
     the fifth floor.
    
     CENTRAL 5TH FLOOR
     Run back to the stairwell.
    
     STAIRWELL
     Return to the third floor.
    
     CENTRAL 3RD FLOOR
     If you don't already have the ROPE from the draw in "MONICA'S OFFICE" in the
     dance studio nearby, then go get it now. Use the SCREWDRIVER to open the stuck
     draw so you can take it. Once you have, return to this area. You'll only have
     the item already if you're playing in easy puzzle mode.
    
     Go to the slightly open elevator on the west side and use the JACK to push the
     doors open further. Once that is done, use the rope to climb down inside the
     elevator shaft so you can reach one of the floors downstairs. You'll come out
     on the second floor.
    
     CENTRAL 2ND FLOOR
     Most of this floor is taken up the ECHO Interiors company, with a small
     section to the north-west being the Green Ridge Mental Health Clinic. The
     doorway leading into the stairwell is still broken, even from this side (I
     would have thought it would have made sense to have it locked from the other
     side, and you could unlock it from here but...). There is a nearby vending
     machine with a piece of paper stuck on it which also has the normal save sign
     on it too. Use it if you want to.
    
     Run south down the hall towards the entrances to ECHO. The path to the east
     leads to a dead end, but the path west has many doors. However you'll find
     only one of them can be entered, the single ECHO doorway to the right of the
     wooden sign with the company's name on it.
    
     ECHO INTERIORS AND FLOOR FASHIONS
     This is basically one large empty room except for some BEEF JERKY you'll find,
     correctly placed, infront of a statue of a dog. Most of the doors out of the
     room don't work, except for the one leading north just behind the reception
     desk. Use it to arrive in a showroom of sorts.
    
     ECHO SHOWROOM
     You can unlock a door leading back into the hallway from here, but there isn't
     much point going back out. There isn't much else in here to do but look at
     things which are dirty, so go through the green door to the north.
    
     When playing on Hard, you might find a couple of Numb Bodies in here, so keep
     that in mind.
    
     ECHO STOREROOM
     Again, this room is empty, apart from one thing that Heather keeps focusing
     on. The bathtub. If you move to the back of the room, the angle even focus' on
     it to. Approach it and press X and a cutscene will take place. You'll also
     hear a familiar voice if you've been a long timeplayer of the series.... ahh,
     nostalgic reminders.

     ALTERNATE STORE/SHOWROOM
     The two rooms have combined to create one large room. There still is only one
     way out though. Walk around the bathtub and down the path towards the door to
     exit the room. Before you do though, turn Heather away from the camera and
     check out what's hanging on the wall.
    
     ALTERNATE ECHO
     In the next room, check the wheelchair for something odd. There might also be
     some HANDGUN AMMO sitting on it too. You can explore the room for some other
     weird stuff, then exit out the only door assessable to the east of the room.
    
     ALTERNATE CENTRAL 2ND FLOOR
     You'll probably be introduced to the Slurpers out here, crawling on the floor.
     It's best to avoid them where possible, but they usually inhabit narrow
     hallways which makes that a problem. Remember to aim downwards when fighting
     them. Also keep in mind that they also feign death sometimes, so you might
     want to shoot them on the ground once or twice if you can to make sure they
     actually are dead.
    
     The first door you want to check in this new alternate world is the one just
     to the north of where you exited, which has a large blood stain across it. It
     leads into what was the Green Ridge Mental Health Clinic.
    
     (ALTERNATE) MENTAL HEALTH CLINIC
     Once you're in the reception area, check the desk for a note written on the
     back of a photograph. Once you've taken that go, save if you want to, then
     through the orange door at the northern end of the room.
    
     (ALTERNATE) DOCTORS OFFICE
     In here a cutscene will take place. Once it's over, you'll be taken
     automatically into another room.
    
     (ALTERNATE) CLINIC OFFICE
     Check the cabinet to the side of the room for a variety of items, but most
     importantly OXYDOL. On the desk will be a "junior high school chemistry
     book" for you to read, unless your playing on Hard - in which nothing appears
     here. These notes, along with the OXYDOL, will provide keys to part of a
     puzzle - but other parts are still left which you'll need to find. Once
     you've grabbed everything, exit through the other door in the office to return
     back into the reception area.
    
     (ALTERNATE) MENTAL HEALTH CLINIC
     Go back through the reception area and exit back out into the central area of
     the second floor.
    
     ALTERNATE CENTRAL 2ND FLOOR
     All the remaining unchecked doors on this floor are locked, the elevator
     shaft you used to get down here isn't functioning. However the Elevator
     directly across from it, the eastern one, is now operating allowing you to
     access many of the buildings floors. Use it.
    
     (ALTERNATE) ELEVATOR
     Turn around and use the floor panel on the side of the doors. Floors 1, 4, and
     5 are all assessable at this point of time (apart from 2 where you started of
     course), but only certain floors are of any use to you right now. Seeing as it
     would be a smart idea to work your way up the floors, start by going down to
     the first floor.
    
     (ALTERNATE) CENTRAL 1ST FLOOR
     Once you get off the stairs, you'll hear your radio going off. Don't worry
     though, nothing is here to attack you. Walk just out of the lift area and
     around the corner towards what should be the exit of this building. You'll
     find a large monster blocking your way. This monster is "Glutton" but don't
     worry, he won't harm you. You can walk right up to him. Check the floor
     in front of him where you'll find some pages of a book telling some odd story.
     Also check the map for Heather's funny little drawing of the monster.
    
     The stairwell isn't of any use to you, so head the opposite direction to the
     south. The paths east and west are still on this floor. Checking your map, the
     west door goes to Elberton Life Insurance, but the door is locked right now.
     The east doors lead to the "LAST DROP CAFE" and that's where you need to go.
     The door on the north facing wall is the only one you can use however. Go
     inside.
    
     (ALTERNATE) LAST DROP CAFE
     Watch out when you first enter, because there might be some enemies about.
     Pass the counter and bar and check the table at the back for some ammo items,
     then check the eastern side of the room where the bar ends and you'll find a
     blood covered bar fridge with it's door wide open, and inside will be some
     PORK LIVER. Hmm... didn't the book upstairs say that liver and oxydol created
     some sort of reaction?* Guess we've found out missing piece. But hold on...
     how do we make use of this info, and how will we create the flame? Return back
     out to the center of the 1st floor. * - But of course, if you're playing on
     hard, it's not going to have been there to give you a hint.
    
     (ALTERNATE) CENTRAL 1ST FLOOR
     Back track to the elevator and use it.
    
     (ALTERNATE) ELEVATOR
     Seeing as the forth floor is a dead end (you're more than welcome to check it,
     but you'll find all the doors are locked), then we can ignore it. Time to
     return to the fifth floor it seems.
    
     ALTERNATE CENTRAL 5TH FLOOR
     By now fans of the original Silent Hill are beginning to freak out a little
     when they step off this elevator. Follow the metal walkway the only way you
     can to the south-west doorway leading into KMN Auto Parts. All the other ways
     are blocked.
    
     ALTERNATE KMN AUTO PARTS
     There will be many enemies in here, so watch out. All the doorways in the
     first part of the hallway are non-open able, so go south to the T-junction.
     From here, check the room at the western end of the hallway and you'll find
     it's a usable door.
    
     (ALTERNATE) MEETING ROOM
     There are a few items to pick up off the table here, but most important is the
     MATCHBOOK. I don't know what it is, but I love the background of this room...
     it has a feeling of going on forever. Anyway, once you've grabbed everything
     exit back out to the hallway.
    
     ALTERNATE KMN AUTO PARTS
     From here, you can enter the first doorway on the south side of the hall
     (directly to Heather's right as you exit) but nothing is in there except a
     couple of enemies stuck behind a caged wall. You can kill them too. Anyway,
     continue right down the hall to the eastern end. Cool trick with the wall
     there I guess, but ignore it and use the large door with the blue light above
     it right at the end of the hallway.
    
     ALTERNATE CENTRAL 5TH FLOOR - EAST
     You're now back in the center of the fifth floor, this time across one of the
     holes in the floor. The orange door at the end doesn't work, but the double
     green-ish doors do. Use them.
    
     ALTERNATE GALLERY OF FINE ARTS
     There is a save point clearly on the wall where the "Repressor Of Memories"
     artwork was. I guess it means a lot. None of the other doors in the gallery
     work, and there is no items in here... so what's next. Well you probably
     noticed the "Flame Purifies All" painting is now in place, and it has a bucket
     below it.

     PUZZLE #03 - LITERAL USAGE
    
     Easy, Normal & Hard:
    
     I don't know if this can really be considered a puzzle, but they've tried to
     set it up like one. You'll need the OXYDOL, PORK LIVER, and the MATCHBOOK to
     complete this one. If you've been following the guide till now then you'll
     have all of these items. Standing in front of the painting and bucket, use the
     combine command to combine all three items, then select use. Once this is
     done, Heather will use the items to start a fire, burning the painting and
     opening a new path way behind it you can use.
    
     ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
    
     With that done, approach the panel in the wall where the painting was and use
     it like any other door.
    
     (ALTERNATE) HIDDEN STAIRWELL
     Check out the view in front of you, then make your way down the stairs to the
     fourth floor level. Check the table at the end where some papers are sitting
     to read a couple of more pages of that odd story, then exit out the only door
     down here.
    
     (ALTERNATE) ONE STOP IMPORTS - EAST
     More slurpers are hanging around down these hallways, so watch out. Follow the
     hallway around to the first blue lit door. Checking it will unlock it, but
     it's not worth going through - as it will just lead you into the central
     fourth floor area, and right now you don't need to go there. Continue to
     follow the hallway until you reach the door leading into the room at the
     south-east corner of this floor.
    
     (ALTERNATE) IMPORT STORAGE
     Walk through the hole in the mesh fence and then check the items on the bed.
     You might however, in modes other than normal, want to shoot at the bed a
     little first, to avoid the Slurper hiding underneath it from attacking you.
     Once you've done that, exit back out into the hallway and continue.
    
     (ALTERNATE) ONE STOP IMPORTS - EAST
     Continue to follow the hallway towards the west, and go through the doorway at
     the end.
    
     (ALTERNATE) ONE STOP IMPORTS - WEST
     Continue to follow the hallway, until you reach the next blue lit door. This
     is the exit on the other side. Unlock it, but don't go through just yet.
     Continue to follow the hallway until you reach it's north-western end, and go
     through the door you find there.
    
     (ALTERNATE) IMPORT OFFICE
     Firstly, check the desk beside where you entered for a SILVER COIN. Once
     you've taken that, approach the vending machine at the back of the room - this
     one sells cold drinks. Use the SILVER COIN you just collected on the machine,
     and a cutscene will take place. Of course, you can also check the writing on
     the wall beside the machine to summarize what you're currently doing. And when
     a life turns to riches, generally has to do with insurance payouts, telling
     you about the key you just collected. Exit the room.
    
     (ALTERNATE) ONE STOP IMPORTS - WEST
     Return to the blue light door and use it.
    
     (ALTERNATE) CENTRAL 4TH FLOOR
     Follow the path to the north, and then use the elevator on the east side of
     the building.
    
     (ALTERNATE) ELEVATOR
     Use the panel and select the first floor.
    
     (ALTERNATE) CENTRAL 1ST FLOOR
     Now down on this floor, read the book near the Glutton if you haven't already,
     and make your way south and then down to the west passage to the locked door.
     Now you have the key, you can get inside.
    
     (ALTERNATE) ELBERTON LIFE INSURANCE
     In this hallway, ignore the path heading north as the two doors at that end
     are both broken. Follow the hallway south and the east as far as you can,
     killing or avoiding any Slurpers you can, until you find it blocked by
     furniture. Just before this blockade is a door you can use, so do so.
    
     (ALTERNATE) INSURANCE MEETING ROOM
     Inside the bloodied room are just tables hanging over a large hole in the
     floor. There are no items to collect, and nothing to see except for one item -
     more pages from that weird book, sitting on the table at the back of the room.
     Go to it and search it like anything else you normally would. Once you've read
     the remaining pages a cutscene will begin. (Tu Fui Ego Eris is Latin, but the
     debate on it's exact translation still rages on.* :) ) Once the scene is over
     exit back out into the hallway.
    
     * Several people have e-mailed me with what Tu Fui Ego Eris means, but still
       gave me a few alternates. Again as mentioned, the debate continues, but it
       always roughly stays as something like "I was once you, you will become me."
       - Thanks to Cerian, Brian, and anyone else who e-mailed me about this.
    
     (ALTERNATE) ELBERTON LIFE INSURANCE
     Return along the hallway the way you came, and exit throughout the door you
     got here.
    
     (ALTERNATE) CENTRAL 1ST FLOOR
     Return to where the book and Glutton are... to find that the monster has
     disappeared. You can now access the doors behind... and the world returns to
     normal.
    
     OUT ON THE STREETS
     Once you're outside, follow the footpath to Heather's right (following the
     maps from the office building, this would be the west). You'll pass the
     construction site you were in earlier, and find an alley way which leads down
     beside it. At the end of the alley after it curves, you'll find a small set of
     stairs leading up to a single doorway. If you read the sign beside the doors
     it'll tell you that you're at the "DAISY VILLA APARTMENT" - home, sweet home.
     Go inside.
    
     DAISY VILLA APARTMENTS
     If you checked Heather's inventory, then you'll see that her key is for
     Apartment #102. Follow the hallway forward until you reach a four way
     intersection. To the right, you'll find there is some mail boxes, and across
     from them a save point on the opposite wall. Use it.
    
     ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
    
     BONUS SH2 SCENE - MAIL BOXES
    
     If you have a save file from Silent Hill 2, make sure it's on the same memory
     card as the one you're playing the game with. The save on the card has to have
     been the game completed at least once.
    
     If you check the mail boxes here, Heather will say they're empty - but will
     then go on to make a reference to the events of Silent Hill 2.
    
     If you don't have the Silent Hill 2 save file, or can't be bothered finishing
     the game again, then you can see this bonus scene eventually. It will
     apparently become unlocked by itself upon replay through the "Extra New Game"
     option.
    
     ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
    
     Continue down the hallway to the right of the mail boxes, and use the first
     door to Heather's left. This is her apartment, so use the HOUSE KEY and go
     inside.
    
     ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
    
     EXTRA NEW GAME - "REVENGE" (UFO) ENDING
    
     At this point of the game you can earn a bonus ending, but only if you've met
     the right requirements to do so. This involves the Heather Beam which you may
     have earned, or may not yet have earned. But either way you'll need to know
     these requirements when you start a "Extra New Game", rather than just now if
     you want the ending.
    
     You need to use the Heather Beam to kill more than 30 enemies. You can't use
     any other weapons except the Heather Beam, and even killing them by kicking
     them will count against this ending - the kill count for shooting and
     fighting has to be 0 and this is the only way to do it.
    
     When you enter the Apartment the ending will take place.

     BOSS #2 - MISSIONARY
    
     Once the scene is over the Missionary is running around. You'll need to hope
     for some good targeting in this fight, which for Hard isn't the easiest thing
     to do. Once it's done enough running in circles, it'll run towards you ready
     to attack. At this point, shooting it hardly  works because it'll just block
     the shots with it's arms/claw like appendages - this can become fairly
     annoying depending on how often it does it.
    
     It's easier to run your self, try and get to it's side and shoot it down. Side
     stepping is too slow, so it's best to try and take sharp turns or run in a
     wide circle while it charges at you. While doing this the weapon of choice in
     the battle, if you haven't unlocked any extras, should be the shotgun. Close
     range and heavy fire mean it's good enough as it is, but the added fact it'll
     also knock the Missionary over helps a lot. Once it's down, it'll be open for
     a "cheap shot" while it's prone on the ground.
    
     What's great about this though, is if you position yourself behind it's back
     when you take the cheap shots, but stand far enough away, then you can keep
     shooting it in it's back after it gets up, causing it to fall over again. The
     reason why you need to stand wide of it however is because it swings it's arms
     in a wide arc around itself afterwards, and you need to be clear of that.
     Apart from that, also keep a good count of your currently loaded ammo. You can
     loose this pattern if Heather has to reload at the wrong time.
    
     Finally, a note for hard - he takes a butt load of ammo to take down. Keep
     this in mind. It's probably best only to expect to use one type of ammo in
     this battle if you've used the bullet adjust to give yourself more, because
     you'll be shooting for quite a while.
    
     Apparently as some people have noted, you can use the handgun with silencer
     and he doesn't seem to block the shots because he can't hear them. It takes a
     bit longer than the shotgun shotswise, but the time you save makes up for it.
     A very handy hint.
    
     Once it's defeated, more cutscenes will take place.
    
     ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
    
     HARRY'S ROOM
     There really isn't anything to do in here. You can check the bed if you want
     for comments from Heather, but when you're ready, exit the room.
    
     APARTMENT #102
     Run straight ahead from Harry's room, past the chair, and through the door on
     the other side.
    
     HEATHER'S ROOM
     Check the open set of draws for a STUN GUN and STUN GUN BATTERY(/IES -
     depending on the difficulty level). Once you've grabbed them, exit the room.
    
     APARTMENT #102
     Exit out the front door of the apartment.
    
     DAISY VILLA APARTMENTS
     Return to where the mail boxes and the save point are. Save if you want to,
     then exit through the door right beside it and another series of cutscenes
     will take place. You'll receive a map of Silent Hill and a (DAD'S) NOTEBOOK.

     There is a save point sitting on the desk near the door. Save if you wish,
     then exit the room.
    
     SILENT HILL
     Welcome back. You'll find yourself in the parking lot of Jack's Inn. You'll
     probably recognize this area from Silent Hill 2. Heather's route is blocked
     down Munson Street and the gates are closed to Rosewater Park, and she won't
     walk too far down Nathan Ave. to neither the east or west. You need to head to
     Carroll Street instead and make your way towards Brookhaven Hospital, another
     returnee from Silent Hill 2.
    
     Make your way across the car park and out the only accessible entry to the
     streets. You now need to head west along the footpath until you reach the
     petrol station on the corner. Cut through the station and down the road beside
     it. Carroll Street.
    
     Stay on the west side of the street until you reach the buildings, and then
     look out for some stairs leading up the second floor of one of the buildings.
     If you can't see it through the fog, then you'll just need to head towards the
     buildings from the first car you'll find on the west side of the street. It
     should lead you right into an area where the camera will change and lead you
     up some stairs. For those returning from Silent Hill 2, you'll remember this
     place.
    
     HEAVEN'S NIGHT
     Check the various tables and benches for items. And the bar as well. You
     should find a FIRST AID KIT, some BEEF JERKY, and a box of SHOTGUN SHELLS.
     Once you've grabbed everything, return to the streets.
    
     ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
    
     BONUS SH2 SCENE - LADY MARIA RETURNS
    
     If you have a save file from Silent Hill 2, make sure it's on the same memory
     card as the one you're playing the game with. The save on the card has to have
     been the game completed at least once.
    
     On the table here in Heaven's Night will be "a tourist pamphlet" for Silent
     Hill, and if you make your way around the left side of this table to the stage
     at the front - you'll find a poster touting Maria's return.
    
     If you don't have the Silent Hill 2 save file, or can't be bothered finishing
     the game again, then you can see this bonus scene eventually. It will
     apparently become unlocked by itself upon replay through the "Extra New Game"
     option.
    
     ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
    
     SILENT HILL
     Continue south down the west side of Carroll Street. Eventually the buildings
     will stop and a fence will start. Then that will stop and a mesh fence will
     begin, and then that will lead you to a wall which is the area just by the
     entrance to the hospital. Go inside.
    
     BROOKHAVEN HOSPITAL
     When you enter you'll hear an usual mix of breathing/panting and some weird
     wet sound. Seems like there are enemies about. Nurses they are, with long
     steel poles. Watch out. Once they're dealt with, go back to where you entered,
     and go into the room directly across from the front doors. Those who played
     SH2 might be able to deal with the navigation of this area a little better.
    
     RECEPTION OFFICE
     Directly to your left will be the Brookhaven "HOSPTIAL MAP" so take it. Check
     the open cupboard in here too, there might be an item depending on which level
     you're playing. Finally, save if you want to - the save icon is on the back
     wall. Once you're finished, exit back out.
    
     BROOKHAVEN HOSPITAL
     Now we have the map, I can tell you were to go because all of the rooms are
     thankfully labeled. The next place you'll want to go to is the "DOCTOR'S
     LOUNGE" located behind the reception. The entrance is through the east side.
    
     DOCTOR'S LOUNGE
     Check the table in the middle of the room for a document about patients in
     the hospital. Check the fridge at the back of the room for a HEALTH DRINK too.
     Once you've done this, exit.
    
     BROOKHAVEN HOSPITAL
     The next room you need to visit is the, err... "VISITING ROOM" located on the
     west side of this entrance area. This is a new room which didn't appear in
     Silent Hill 2.
    
     VISITING ROOM
     Check the doll beside the book first. It'll make this more interesting. Once
     you've done that, read the book on the table. It's a diary of sorts. Once
     you've finished reading, check the doll again. Heh. Now exit.
    
     BROOKHAVEN HOSPITAL
     All the remaining doors in this area are broken except for the one leading to
     the patients area, but you don't want to go there just yet. Instead, go to the
     elevator on the west side of this area and use it to reach the second floor.
    
     BROOKHAVEN HOSPITAL 2ND FLOOR
     Walk down the hallway west from the elevators. You'll see another book of
     Stanley's. Read it then go to the "WOMEN'S LOCKER ROOM" at the northern most
     point of this area.
    
     WOMEN'S LOCKER ROOM
     There might be some HANDGUN AMMO on the desk, so take it if it's there. Check
     the open locker from NAIL POLISH REMOVER and PERFUME. Once you've taken them,
     leave the room. As many people will go on to wonder about the Perfume, here's
     a little note about it.
    
     ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
    
     ITEM - PERFUME
    
     Once you've collected the Perfume in the game, Heather will go onto keep this
     for the remainder of the game. It has two options - Use and Equip. There
     doesn't ever seem to be any use for the item from here onwards, so it only
     leaves the Equip option. Of course, as Heather notes - "This stuff smells a
     little strange" - and rightly so. Basically this item is a bad item. What it
     does is attracts enemies to you when it is equipped. The only good point you
     could see out of that perhaps is if you're going for a high kill rate. Either
     way however, it's best to ignore the item once you've collected it.
    
     ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
    
     EXTRA NEW GAME BONUS - EXTRA COSTUME CODE
    
     Before you leave the room, also check the magazines sitting on the table
     sitting beside the door. Doing so will give you one of the codes to unlock an
     extra costume for Heather. As the title suggests you can only find this in the
     Extra New Game mode. You can learn more about these extra costumes later in
     the guide.
    
     ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
    
     BROOKHAVEN HOSPITAL 2ND FLOOR
     We'll ignore the door leading into the "PATIENTS WING" here for now. Don't
     worry we'll be back, but first we should explore the one on the first floor -
     now we have the correct items. Use the elevator to return to the first floor.
    
     BROOKHAVEN HOSPITAL
     Make your way to the door leading into the patients wing at the south west
     corner of this area. Go through.
    
     PATIENTS WING 1ST FLOOR
     All the first lots of doors along here will be locked until you reach C2. You
     don't have to go in here, but read on if you do. Or skip down to the next
     paragraph below it to continue in this wing. In hard, you'll come across your
     first gun toting nurse along here too I might add, so watch out.
    
     ROOM C2
     There will be a two or three Nurses in here. Depending on your difficulty
     level, there may-or-may not be an item to collect in here. Once you're
     finished in the room, return to the wing.
    
     PATIENTS WING 1ST FLOOR
     Skip room C3 as the door doesn't work, and go straight to C4.
    
     ROOM C4
     Check the bed at the back of the room and you'll find another message from
     Stanley. Check the wall beside the bed to find there is a lot of stuff stuck
     to the wall, most important of all a key. Crack out the NAIL POLISH REMOVER
     and use it here, and you'll get the STAIRWELL KEY off the wall. Exit the room.
    
     PATIENTS WING 1ST FLOOR
     All the remaining doors and the elevator don't work, so make your way back
     into the entrance area where you first came into the hospital.
    
     BROOKHAVEN HOSPITAL
     If you want to you can now use the STAIRWELL KEY on the stairwell door here,
     just across from the "PATIENTS WING" where you were. Go inside.
    
     STAIRWELL
     Go upstairs until you reach the door labeled RF or "ROOF FLOOR" at the top.
     Sitting on the ground will be another message from Stanley if you want to read
     it. Either way, go through the RF door.
    
     ROOF FLOOR
     Watch out because there are Closers on this roof, and there isn't a lot of
     space to be fighting two of them. Check the barrels in the south-west corner
     of the map because you'll find SUBMACHINE GUN BULLETS here. Grab them and
     return to the stairs.
    
     ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
    
     BONUS SH2 SCENE - FENCE
    
     If you have a save file from Silent Hill 2, make sure it's on the same memory
     card as the one you're playing the game with. The save on the card has to have
     been the game completed at least once.
    
     If you check the fence beside the stairs and the "Elevator control room"
     beside it, then Heather will make a comment relevant to Silent Hill 2. It's
     not much, yes. But still...
    
     If you don't have the Silent Hill 2 save file, or can't be bothered finishing
     the game again, then you can see this bonus scene eventually. It will
     apparently become unlocked by itself upon replay through the "Extra New Game"
     option.

     All right, now it's time to enter the "PATIENTS WING" on this floor, so
     approach the nearby door. However you'll find that it's locked and you'll need

              the following:
    
                   "Press, move 2 right;
                    press, move 1 up;
                    press, move 2 down;
                    press, the door shall open."
    
              What gets most people about this is where to start. Basically if you
              were wanting to work this out yourself, you need a piece of paper.
              Try and work out ways you can't go from the sets of buttons, and you
              should be able to narrow it down. For those who don't want to, or for
              some reason don't have paper (:p), I guess you have me to help.
    
                                           1  2  3
    
                                           4  5  6
    
                                           7  8  9
    
              Here are the 9 digits. The first part says you have to move 2 right.
              So what numbers can you move 2 right from? Well clearly not 3, 6, or
              9. And clearly not 2, 5, or 8 either. So that takes care of 6 numbers
              straight away.
    
                                           1  X  X
    
                                           4  X  X
    
                                           7  X  X
    
              That leaves us with 3 numbers. The next task says we'll have to move
              one digit up. You can't do that with 1 because it's at the top.
              Moving two across and up one would put you above 3, so that clearly
              doesn't work. So there goes the next number.
    
                                           X  X  X
    
                                           4  X  X
    
                                           7  X  X
    
              Two numbers left now. The next direction states you'll need to move
              down two. Clearly two right, one up, then two down from 7 doesn't
              work because you'd be below the 9. This then, just leaves the number
              4. From the 4, follow the directions given to unlock the door and go
              through.
    
     Normal - In normal, you'll be given a more cryptic puzzle, but still nothing
              too taxing. The note posted to the wall has the following written on
              it.
    
                   "The first is larger than the second;
                    the second twice the third;
                    the third 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"
    
              So where do we start? Well start on the point that we only have 9
              numbers, so we can't halve odd numbers. Given this we know the first
              and forth numbers have to be even. This leaves us with 2, 4, 6, and 8
              for both of these numbers.
    
              From there we can focus on the first number - "Key 1" It seems that
              because the way the puzzle is constructed, the "Key 1" is larger than
              everything else, that we're looking for higher numbers. 2 and 4
              aren't going to work for us because the number would have halved for
              "Key 4", and then it's too small to be greater than the second and
              third keys. We can't have more than 1 number in the top row as only
              one of the four keys are, and using 2 or 4 would put more than one
              number between 1-3.
    
              Working with six firstly then for "Key 1" means that "Key 4" however
              would have to be a three, and seeing as we can't halve to odd numbers
              as I mentioned, this doesn't work. And so our first number, "Key 1",
              is 8, and our fourth number, "Key 4", is 4.
    
              So now we have this. Two down, two to go.
    
                         Key 1        Key 2        Key 3         Key 4
                         X X X        1 2 3        1 2 3         X X X
                         X X X        4 5 6        4 5 6         4 X X
                         X 8 X        7 8 9        7 8 9         X X X
    
              Right now we know it's an 8 and a 4, we can start work with these.
    
              "Key 3", the third digit is smaller than the fourth digit, which
              leaves us with 3 numbers - numbers 1, 2 and 3. "Key 2" - the second
              number has to be twice this amount but less than eight. Unfortunately
              this hasn't narrowed you down much. So lets look at the other clues.
    
              You can however count 1 out as 2X1 = 2, and there is only supposed
              one digit in the top 3 numbers. This leaves 2 and 3, but 2 doesn't
              work because 2X2 = 4, and you already have a 4 listed for "Key 4".
              The instructions states that no numbers are to be repeated, so "Key
              3" is 3, and "Key 2" is the answer of 2X3. I'm sure you can figure
              out what that last digit is yourself. ;)
    
     Hard   - The puzzle in the hard mode actually managed to give me headaches
              trying.
    
              It took me a while to even grasp how to work it out, and I really
              tried to resist the urge to come online and get some help on working
              out. Finally banging my head on the desk lost out to actually
              looking online, and followed chesh the cat's originally notation of
              the puzzle over at the SHForum for a starting point.
    
              Last time I submitted this guide, I noticed Chesh actually wrote a
              guide for the game, and while I didn't follow the exact guide to
              reach the conclusion (although I can only assume it's the same or
              very similar because there only seems to be one way to actually
              follow this puzzle), Chesh deserves the credit for the starting
              point noting the abstract clues and putting me on the right path to
              finishing the puzzle. Thanks Chesh.
    
              Anyway, the note on the wall has the following:
    
                  "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."
    
              By now you're probably like this... O.o
    
              The original note I read from chesh at the SHForum stated that all
              the numbers are found out by relating the parts of the face
              mentioned in the note to the numbers on the keypad. The only other
              clue that you should know is that when you're looking at someone
              your left is their right, and your right is their left. I think
              that's important, but it wasn't noted.
    
              After all this is done, you should have something like this:
    
                                         1       2       3
                                       (eye)           (eye)
    
                                         4       5       6
                                       (ear)  (nose)   (ear)
    
                                         7       8       9
                                      (cheek) (mouth) (cheek)
    
              Seeing as it all relates to these features of a face, you need to go
              through the text until you reach the first of these. This is the "I
              place my hand..." part. Trying to work this out may have confused you
              originally because if he placed his left hand on your face then it
              would be on your right side, which gives us a side. However, because
              we're looking at the person from the writers view this will remain to
              their left side, or the left of the keypad. It would only be the
              right side from the persons view... understand?
    
              And the eye, with the left side, gives us the number to start at,
              which is #1. However this doesn't mean the #1 is the first number,
              rather that it is our starting point as I later found out. They
              just had to make it that much harder, didn't they?
    
              The next two paragraphs talks only of the same facial features, or
              rather the eye and a part of another one - taste. To be exact the
              taste of blood running down the face from the eye. This means
              you're heading downwards... and the next (and first working number)
              is the number (#)4.
    
              The following two paragraphs talk of hunger and eating, and then
              flat out give you the clear reasoning that it's related to the
              mouth (tongue and lips), so it only makes sense then that the next
              digit is the number (#)8. Skipping the next paragraph, and moving
              to the cheeks one tells us the third number is the one of the
              cheeks, either #7 or #9. That one is fairly obvious too, but we
              don't quite have a full answer just yet.
    
              The final one is flat out told to you over the next two paragraphs,
              that it's an ear, and that it's the left ear, which on the person
              is the side of #6 - or their right side when looking at them. This
              now gives you the clue if you re-read it that they are moving from
              the mouth up to the left ear and past the left cheek, which tells
              you the third number is #9, and not #7.
    
              This will leave you with the final code for the door, and hopefully
              free of headaches like me.

     Make your way down the hall, and go into the first door (yellow double doors)
     on the north side.
    
     EXAMINATION ROOM 3
     Check the desk at the end of the room to learn about some of the events in the
     hospital. Once you've done that, check the gurney on the side of the room
     where the arm is sticking out from. The tattoo gives you a clue about an
     upcoming puzzle. Once you've done all this exit back out into the hallway.
    
     PAITENT'S WING 2ND FLOOR
     Ignore room M1, M2, and M3 on the left, and the single door on the right
     you'll pass down the hallway as they don't work. Enter M4 near the elevator.
    
     ROOM M4
     As you enter an alarm clock will go off. Go to the clock sitting between the
     two beds and check it. You can switch off the alarm. Depending on the
     difficulty, this part will change.

     PUZZLE #05 - WHAT A CLOCKSTOPPER
    
     Clue: The start time is my key.
    
     The clock time needs to be converted to the correct numbers to open the
     briefcase which is sitting on the patients bed.
    
     Easy   - Perhaps, too easy. Apart from being shown on the analog clock, the
              number is clearly written on the face of the clock. This is the exact
              number you need to use.
    
     Normal - This removes the writing from the clock and just keeps the analog
              clock face, where you'll have to read the clock. The time can be read
              in normal AM or PM time (e.g. 3:05 is 0305 or 1505 on the case).
              You'll just have to try the other type if the first one doesn't work.
    
     Hard   - Seems to work exactly like the normal mode. It would have made more
              sense to me to have the normal ones always be AM times and the hard
              ones always be PM times (requiring 24 hour times like 1820 etc.),
              but that's just me. Times on the hard clock though can be harder to
              read, like being a 1 or 9 minute so they're harder to read.

     Once you've opened the case you'll get the INSTANT CAMERA. Once you have,
     check the other bed near the door for another note from Stanley, then exit
     back into the hallway.
    
     PAITENT'S WING 2ND FLOOR
     Continue down the hall and into "ROOM M5."
    
     ROOM M5
     Shoot the approaching Nurses, then check the table at the back of the room for
     a FIRST AID KIT (or two if you're playing on hard). Exit to the hallway.
    
     PAITENT'S WING 2ND FLOOR
     Room M6 at the end of the hall won't work, so it's time to leave this area.
     Return to the entrance of the second floor.
    
     BROOKHAVEN HOSPITAL 2ND FLOOR
     Use the doorway to get back into the "STAIRWELL" so you can continue to
     explore the hospital.
    
     STAIRWELL
     Continuing downwards, make your way right down past the "1F" door until you
     reach the "HOSPITAL BASEMENT". You can only use the stairs to get down there.
    
     HOSPITAL BASEMENT
     The storeroom right ahead of you is inaccessible, as is the next door.
     Continue down the hall and past the creepy wheelchair. Follow the trail of
     blood to the end by the elevator and you'll find a SUBMACHINE GUN. Check the
     door directly opposite where the gun was... on the south side of the map.
    
     STORE ROOM BASEMENT
     There doesn't seem to be anything in here, but if you check the wall at the
     end, you'll see a bloody stain on the wall which goes behind a shelf not
     against the wall. But when you check it, Heather finds she can't fit or move
     the shelf. Select your INSTANT CAMERA from you inventory and use it, and
     Heather will take a picture from behind the shelf. What you'll find is another
     four digit code. Exit the room.
    
     HOSPITAL BASEMENT
     Return down the hall and use the stairs to go back up.
    
     STAIRWELL
     Make your way up the stairs until you read the third floor, marked 3F of
     course, and use the door there.
    
     BROOKHAVEN HOSPITAL 3RD FLOOR
     All right, now we're up on the third floor, the first thing you'll want to
     check is the "STORE ROOM" here, so go inside.
    
     STORE ROOM 3F
     Firstly you'll find a save point on the floor, so use it if you want to. Check
     the shelves at the back of the room for a few items, and once you're finished,
     exit back out to the hall.
    
     BROOKHAVEN HOSPITAL 3RD FLOOR
     The next place you need to go is to the "SPECIAL TREATMENT ROOMS" at the top
     of the map here, up the short hall beside the stairwell.
    
     SPECIAL TREATMENT ROOMS
     There are four doors in here, of which only two works - one which needs to be
     unlocked by you (no key, just unlocked) and one which you can just walk into.
     There is a note beside where you entered too. The locked room has to do with
     this note. The other has another diary from Stanley. Once you're finished in
     these rooms, return to the entrance to the third floor.
    
     BROOKHAVEN HOSPITAL 3RD FLOOR
     Now it's time to enter the "PATIENTS WING" here on the third floor. When you
     try to access it you'll find that it too is locked and needs a code, but there
     is no clue to unlocking it. Of course you already have the code - the number
     you took a photo of down in the basement. If you need to remember it, check
     your "Memos" and look for the one labeled "Photo - Backside of shelf." Enter
     the number which was on the photo and you'll have access.
    
     PAITENTS WING 3RD FLOOR
     The first door you can enter along here is S1, so do so.
    
     ROOM S1
     Check the magazine sitting on the bed. This information will become important
     soon. There might also be some items sitting on the table beside the bed, so
     take them, then exit the room.
    
     PATIENTS WING 3RD FLOOR
     Continue up the hallway until you reach S7. All the doors between S1 and S7
     don't work, so don't worry. Don't miss the BEEF JERKY sitting on the bench
     part way up the hall though.
    
     ROOM S7
     Look at the bed. What's happened to the doll? Read the notes from Stanley.
     Exit the room.
    
     PAITENTS WING 3RD FLOOR
     Continue up the hall to room S12 and use the door there. There might be some
     enemies running about so watch out.

     Walk towards the phone at the back of the room, and it'll start ringing. Check
     it and a cutscene will begin. Once the scene is over, leave the room.
    
     PAITENTS WING 3RD FLOOR
     The remaining doors on this floor are broken, so it's not worth continuing to
     the end. Time to make your way down to the second floor, where Leonard Wolf
     said he'd be. Exit back out the main part of the third floor.
    
     BROOKHAVEN HOSPITAL 3RD FLOOR
     You can use the stairs or the elevator to make your way down to the second
     floor.
    
     BROOKHAVEN HOSPITAL 2ND FLOOR
     Go through the door to the "PAITENTS WING" here.
    
     PAITENTS WING 2ND FLOOR
     Run right to the end of the hallway. Huh? A door just labeled "M" - Don't
     remember this being here before... doesn't seem to be marked on the map
     either. Don't like the looks of this too, but I guess there is no other
     choice. Enter the door.
    
     LABYRINTH PART 1
     This isn't as bad as it sounds, nor is it like the one in SH2. Wouldn't it be
     cool though if they could actually make a Labyrinth like those ones in the
     pictures you see - or in the movie Labyrinth. I'd go crazy. LOL Umm... anyway,
     getting back on track. For this one you're going to be more or less guided
     through this one anyway by closing gates, but just in case - here's the path.
    
     Walk forward and a gate will block your path. Don't worry though, it'll move.
     Continue forward until the path splits, but another gate will block one of the
     paths. This will happen a lot through this next section, I assure you.
     Continue down the path, and follow around to the right.
    
     Continue ahead until another gate opens on your left. Follow this, because if
     you just keep going ahead the, another one will block your path. Run down here
     and wait for the gate to open, then follow the hallway around the next two
     right hand corners. The path at the end goes left and right, but the right
     path goes no where. Follow left and through the door.
    
     LABYRINTH PART 2
     Run ahead and around the corner to the left. Continue running ahead, towards
     the camera. A gates will close behind you as you run down here. When you get
     to the next split, go right because you can see you can't continue ahead and
     the left is a dead end. The path at the end of this right section however
     will split left and right again. Right is a dead end, so follow the path to
     the left.
    
     When you get so far down the left path, a gate will close, so turn right
     around and go straight again, and the gate that blocked off the right side
     path originally will now open. Continue to follow the path down the hall, and
     around the corner, and then use the door.
    
     LABYRINTH PART 3
     Run ahead and then take the path off to the left, and then around the next
     left corner at the end. Again the camera will switch to ahead of you, and each
     section you pass will close another gate behind you. After several of these
     close, you'll find the eight one will close behind you and in front of you,
     trapping you in a small space.
    
     There is a mark on the wall however.... but this one isn't the one you're
     normally used to. This one is different. For a lot of people, it'll also be
     familiar. Check it and a cutscene will take place - which also might be
     familiar. Once the scene is over, the wall will be gone and you'll be able to
     walk ahead and use the door at the end.

     VALTIEL'S CHAMBER
     Approach the ladder in front of you and climb up it. You'll see Valtiel
     turning his valves in the background, a sure indication you're on your normal
     decent into the not-so-normal. For you SH1 fans, keep an eye on the background
     for a surprise cameo appearance. Once you reach the top, go through the door.
    
     ALTERNATE PAITENTS WING 3RD FLOOR
     Wacky weird textures await you in here. Freaked out yet? Yeah, not too
     surprised there. However this can make getting into the doors here kinda hard
     in places, but thankfully - this effect doesn't appear a lot through the game.
     Check your map for the door to "ROOM S3" and use it (you might have to run
     along the wall clicking or checking your map a lot if you have problems
     getting in the door). Also, on Hard - you'll find some Slurpers in the hallway
     too, which are just a pain in the ass to fight in here, so be careful.
    
     (ALTERNATE) ROOM S3
     Grab the HANDGUN AMMO at the back of the room. That hand there is creepy... do
     you think it'll do anything? There is a save point on the bed if you want to
     use it as well. Once you're finished, exit the room.
    
     (BTW - the answer is no to the hand doing anything - at least as far as I
      know. Don't feel like you have to sit there waiting to see if it does do
      anything unless you really do want to waste some time.)
    
     ALTERNATE PATIENTS WING 3RD FLOOR
     Continue down the hall and enter the exam room on the north side.
    
     ALTERNATE EXAMINATION ROOM 4
     Blood drips into a bucket... and as you'll walk forward, you'll find just from
     where. Remember this room, because we'll have to return here. Exit.
    
     ALTERNATE PATIENTS WING 3RD FLOOR
     Continue to the end of the hallway. The door leading to the main section of
     the third floor is locked, so use the door into the Day Room.
    
     (ALTERNATE) DAY ROOM 3RD FLOOR
     Make your way towards the camera once you're in the room, and walk around the
     hole in the middle of the room. Use the door at the far eastern end.
    
     ALTERNATE BROOKHAVEN HOSPITAL 3RD FLOOR
     Follow the hallway along and past the elevator. There will be Slurpers hanging
     around so watch out. Go into the "STORE ROOM" here.
    
     ALTERNATE STORE ROOM 3RD FLOOR
     There is nothing here, but that's not why you're here for. Walk towards the
     mirror at the back and stand still and watch the events unfold. However, once
     the blood starts to cover the entire walls of the room you're in, make your
     way for the door. Standing in the blotchy red it becomes once it changes will
     begin to eat away at your health rapidly.
    
     ALTERNATE BROOKHAVEN HOSPITAL 3RD FLOOR
     Return to where the elevator is and use it.
    
     (ALTERNATE) ELEVATOR
     In the elevator are six buttons. The three on the right are floors 3, 2, 1
     (top to bottom). The three on the right however, the first and second buttons
     don't work, and the third takes you somewhere else - another basement level
     labeled B3. Use that button.
    
     (ALTERNATE) MORGUE/CREMETORY
     Walk straight ahead when you're in the room, and you'll come to a furnace
     door. Here is your next puzzle.
    
     ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
    
     PUZZLE #06 - BURNED TO A CRISP
    
     Easy   - No puzzle here. The door is wide open. Take the CREMATED KEY from
              inside. Then return to the Elevator.
    
     Normal - Check the metal plate and you'll be shown an 3X4 grid is scratched
              into the door. In 4 of the 12 spots will stand roman numerals (I, II,
              III, and IV). These are the equivalent to the gurney's in the room
              you're in. Go in order to each of them as labeled and record the
              numbers written on the ends. For example, on the playthrough I had
              the numbers on the door and the numbers on the beds were:
    
                                   (DOOR)              (BEDS)
                               II  --- --- ---       1        2
                               --- --- --- ---       3  4  5  6
                               III  I  IV  ---       7  8  9  0
    
              So in this case my code was 8, 1, 7, 9. However the scratches are
              random, so this code won't probably be the same for you. Once you
              have your four numbers, go back to the plate door on the furnace,
              and check the lock to the left of it. Here you can use the code and
              open the lock, check the door so you can open it and collect the
              CREMATED KEY.
    
              You'll normally find the number 7 is always one of the numbers
              though. There is a reason for that you'll find out later.
    
     Hard   - For hard, we're back to the old-school style again. This is a lengthy
              puzzle because of all the notes involved. The clue you get is as
              follows:
    
               (A) "Burn the one who knows no death
                    Pure, adored by those above
                    No prayers within, just simple love
    
               (B)  And now the pining hunter
                    The flames longing for his rebirth
                    A distant breath within the earth
    
               (C)  Burn up that heavy body of his
                    Make it wind, dancing in the sky
                    That bottomless gut now a cloud,
                     now a sigh
    
               (D)  The sweet blood on his laughing lips
                    Now calls him to the gates of Hell
                    There burns ever more that soulless shell
    
                    Four bodies return to ashes
                    Thus the door is opened
                    Thus the door is opened"
    
              Apart from this clue, each of the 10 beds has a note attached to it
              which forms the other part of the puzzle. For the sake of not going
              overboard with length, I've marked out the four numbers for you. They
              are:
    
                    0
                    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
    
                    1
                    Who killed Cock Robin?
                    "The Sparrow," they said
                    "He wants them all dead
                    To him, honey-sweet is
                    their sobbin'"
    
                   (This is D in the original clue. The Sparrow is the only bird
                    here with reason to be sent to hell on the matter of something
                    related to blood - he killed Cock Robin and wants to kill
                    "all". Clearly you'd understand that "Who Killed Cock Robin?"
                    was the influence/starting point for this whole thing -
                    although it's not the first time birds have been used in a SH
                    riddle - the piano riddle in the original SH for example).
    
                    2
                    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
    
                   (This is B in the original clue. A hunter who can't hunt. An owl
                    which can't fly. The Earth mentioned in both. This is fairly
                    straight forward to understand I would believe).
    
                    3
                    The grass the Thrush so loved to eat
                    Gave him sweet happiness
                    He sank even deeper and finally fell
                    To destruction and fatal distress
    
                    4
                    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
                    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 none want to stay
    
                    6
                    The Dove's hope died; he chose his path
                    His flapping wings fell still
                    Drenched in scarlet here they lay
                    His cheeks pale white and chill
    
                    7
                    He seeks out her soul by his own black ambition
                    Frightening her out of her wits
                    Whispering love songs into her ear
                    What cruel Linnet wants, he gets
    
                   (This is C in the original clue. I like this one, it's a two
                    over because it has to do with something else in the game apart
                    from this puzzle. Anyway, the Linnet itself is the clue here,
                    and this is the trickiest of the 4. The only other one to have
                    fit the clue has already gone).
    
                    8
                    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
                    The Wren, with pure heart as yet unrefined
                    Makes us laugh with his feeble lip-smacking
                    But still we all know he shall never grow old
                    And he knows not how much he is lacking
    
                   (This is A in the original clue. Pure heart is the answer to
                    this, seeing as "pure" in both of them and the description
                    matches each others contents. e.g. Adored from above, by making
                    people laugh, etc. etc.)
    
             Now you just need to take the order they're in (which I lettered A, B,
             C, and D) and get the 4 numbers from the matches. Then go over to the
             lock on the door and use the 4 numbers. Open the door and then grab
             the CREMATED KEY.

     ALTERNATE WOMEN'S LOCKER ROOM
     Run forward and a locker will open showing something odd moving around inside.
     Examine it if you want Heather's opinion on it. Go back towards the exit, but
     before you do, check the rubbish bin sitting in the corner. Doing so will get
     you a PLASTIC BAG, and checking it again after that might also get you a
     HEALTH DRINK (or 2 if your playing on hard). Then you can exit.

     ringing and a cutscene will begin. Once it's over, check the phone for another
     piece of weirdness. Then leave the room.

     ALTERNATE PAITENTS WING 1ST FLOOR
     More Slupers maybe in here. If you did get the phone call scene on the second

     silver letters, and the door beside this (leading to "ROOM C1") will be
     unlocked. If you didn't, then this room isn't unlocked. You can go back
     upstairs and answer the phone if you wish to gain access.
    
     ROOM C1
     There will be some nurses in here to kill, so do that. Then check the south
     side of the bed on the left for a birthday card which was left on the ground.
     Finally, grab the items sitting on the table along the back wall. Check the
     table again after taking them for some more of Heather's sense of humor. Exit.

     On the wall is a save point. In front of you where the candles are is some
     sort of altar (check it for some interesting things) and to the left of that
     is a table with a book on it called "Lost Memories" - sounds kinda familiar.
     Read it to learn something or two about sacrifices.
    
     After reading it and thinking about what you have, you'll probably figure you
     have to use the PLASTIC BAG (WITH BLOOD) on the altar. So do so, and a
     cutscene will begin. Once it's over, save if you want to (or haven't already,
     or should do... or whatever) and then climb down the ladder and another
     cutscene will begin.
    
     ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
    
     BOSS #3 - LEONARD
    
     Now that Leonard thinks you're a threat, he's going to attack you. Not a nice
     looking fellow is he. Grab a weapon of choice (it's not too important what you
     choose, but rather how you'll attack, but stronger weapons are nicer of
     course) and begin shooting. If you can walk and shoot, it'll make it even
     better because you need to back up from Leonard while attacking.
    
     Between times where Leonard is around, he'll submerge himself and swim in the
     water. You'll be unable to target him until he resurfaces, but you'll see
     flashes of him illuminated in the murky water. You need to keep moving and
     avoid where he pops out of the water to stop being attacked - especially to
     either side of him as that's generally is reaching range as he sweeps his arms
     around. If you can't see him when he pops out of the water, you'll know
     because you'll hear it. Just turn around and he should hopefully be close
     enough to shoot at but not close enough to attack you.
    
     Once his is out of the water though, you need to repeat the tactic of shooting
     him as well as you can until he disappears. Sometimes additionally, he'll be
     prone - floating in the water - for a short while, in which you can get in a
     couple of extra shots before he submerges, and the whole process continues.
    
     And really that is about it. This whole pattern will continue until he dies
     (or he kills you - in which you'll need to start over again of course).
     Compared to the last boss - the Missionary - this fight could be considered a
     whole lot easier.
    
     For Hard, you can still manage to take him out with just Handgun Ammo and NO
     healing items. Stand down by the end with the beams, in the corner by them
     across from the side with the ladder. There is a large beam jutting out there
     you can stand beside. Leonard never comes too close to this area, and even
     when he does come as close as he does - 2 handgun bullets will knock him over.
     Just make sure you hold L2 as well as R2 so you can track him when he comes
     near and then just shoot him when he surfaces. With the handgun it'll take a
     lot of time and ammo, but it is very possible.
    
     Once it's over, another cutscene will take place and you'll be returned to
     the "normal" world.
    
     ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
    
     Once that scene is over you'll receive the TALISMAN. Exit the room.
    
     PAITENT WING 1ST FLOOR
     Follow the hall to the east and exit into the main part of the hospital.
    
     BROOKHAVEN HOSPITAL
     Follow the path around to the front of the hospital and exit out the front
     doors to return to the streets of Silent Hill. After doing so you'll hear a
     conversation between Claudia and Vincent, which will then turn into a full
     cutscene.
    
     SILENT HILL
     When the scene is over you'll be out on the streets. The sunset has turned the
     world into a orange-ish version of the foggy world. Backtrack along Carroll
     Street the way you came, and then cut through the petrol station and go east
     down Nathan Ave. and back towards Jacks Inn. Cut through the carpark and back
     into your motel room.
    
     JACKS INN MOTEL ROOM #106
     A cutscene will take place once you arrive inside. Once it's finished you'll
     be returned outside.
    
     SILENT HILL
     Return through the carpark again and back onto Nathan Ave. Again, run towards
     the west but just continue to follow the road until the game takes over and
     you'll be taken to your next destination.

     LAKESIDE AMUSEMENT PARK
     Yes, yes. Back here again. Once the cutscene is over, familiar terror-tory
     (sorry, really bad pun) will be in front of you. As before, no map - so follow
     the directions. However the start of this is a lot like before. Run straight
     forward and once you reach the bench at the end, turn to the left and run
     forward a little until the camera angle shows you a doorway. Go through it.
    
     LAKESIDE SHOPPING
     As like last time, there is two directions to go from here. From the doorway
     you came in, to Heather's left is a dead end, so follow the path to the right.
     Most of the doors you'll pass aren't assessable, however one of them will
     allow you into the souvenir shop, but this time we need to go inside. So do
     so.
    
     LAKESIDE SOUVENIR SHOP
     From the front entrance, walk up the center isle, and at the end of the oval
     shaped display will be a FIRST AID KIT (or AMPOULE on hard). On the counter
     in front of that will be some BEEF JERKY. After collecting that, continue to
     walk around the store until you hear a loud crash, and if you check the back
     of the store, you'll find some boxes have fallen. One of them if you check
     the pile, contains a ROLLER COASTER KEY. There is also another with a save
     point on it too. Once you're finished in here, return outside.
    
     LAKESIDE SHOPPING
     Continue to follow the circular walkway around, until reaching the wall with
     the small sign (and with a lamp above it still). Go through the small door to
     the right of it and through to the next area.
    
     COASTER QUE
     In this small area you're going to have a couple more enemies to kill or run
     past. Either way, once you're ready, just run to the far side and go through
     the gate in the middle.
    
     MOUNTAIN COASTER ENTRANCE
     Make your way past the ticket booth and towards the stairs leading to the top
     of the Mountain Coaster. Climb the stairs up to the top platform where the
     control office and Coaster entrance.
    
     Unlike your first visit here, you have they key for the control booth, so use
     the door and Heather will use the ROLLER COASTER KEY to open it. Once the door
     is open, walk inside and check the panel near the door with the light on it to
     turn off the Coaster. Check the end of the panel near the camera and you'll
     find some HEALTH DRINKS too. Exit the control room and use the gate beside it
     to get onto the coaster tracks.
    
     MOUNTAIN COASTER
     You'll find the path to the left of the entrance blocked, so follow the track
     to the right. Avoid the edges because Heather can fall off if you're not
     careful (unless you're playing on Easy of course). Walking instead of running
     is the key. When you get to a certain point a cutscene will take place and
     the screen will fade to black. Again.
    
     Another couple of cutscenes will take place, then the game will continue.
    
     AMUSEMENT PATH A
     Heather survived the fall thanks to a well placed ticket booth. Walk forward
     and look for a brick wall on the side of the area you're in, there you'll find
     a door leading inside a part of the amusement park.
    
     BORLEY EXTERIROR
     Follow the path and you'll pass a sign which tells you where you are. Follow
     the path to the end, and then head left at the queue area. Take the left past
     the ticket booth (save there if you want to) then continue down the path and
     enter the mansion doors at the end.
    
     BORLEY HAUNTED MANSION
     This room is empty, but a narrator will take you through an explanation of the
     area. The first time you play the game you'll have to stay here and wait for
     it to finish before the exit door will unlock, but on Extra New Game replay
     you'll be able to use the exit door at anytime. Once you can, go through the
     door into the next room.
    
     LIVING ROOM
     Again, you'll have to wait in here the first time you play. The angle will
     change at certain points of the story. On the third one, keep an eye on the
     center window when the lighting flashes. :p Once the talking is over, go
     through the door at the end of the room.
    
     STUDY
     Follow the path around to the end, until the narrator starts talking again.
     Once he's finished talking, the door you were going for is clearly blocked
     (check the blocking item too... it's not fake), so turn around and start your
     way back. You'll find however there is a blue door in the back wall you can
     use to access the next area.
    
     BEDROOM
     Walk forward while the guy continues to talk. As you reach the middle section
     between the two cages, watch out because some spikes will fall. Depending on
     the difficulty, you might be okay... but the way to get past is to hold R2 and
     be in the caution mode as you walk along. Once you get past, exit the room.
    
     WINDING HALLWAY A
     You can stand here and listen to the guy talking. But once he's finished, or
     when you want to, start running and don't stop. Once you get around the first
     corner you'll be followed by an eerie red fog which, if it catches you, will
     kill you. Don't be fooled by the door before the end, you need to come to a
     door right near the end. And watch out for the moving wall too.
    
     WINDING HALLWAY B
     A repeat of these events, but mirrored and upside down (you're running on the
     roof). Once you get down the first part of the hallway, the fog will continue.
     The path is the same as before, except all the turns are in the opposite
     direction from last time. Once you reach the end, exit.
    
     AMUSEMENT PATH B
     And we're back outside. There will be a couple of enemies in this area so
     watch out. Head away from the door you came out of and down the path, and over
     to the far side where there is a wooden fence. If you follow it you'll find a
     small path that leads through to the next section.
    
     SWING ROCKET
     Run forward and along the fence on Heather's left. Watch out because there
     might be some enemies in this area too. Once you're at the end of the fence,
     you'll pass a rubbish bin and a couple of parts of a metal railing. Here the
     path will split to Heather's left and another path to her right, towards the
     Swing Rocket ride. Ignore this path for now, and take the short path to her
     left and through the gate here.
    
     STAR TRAVEL PATH
     Run ahead in this short area. There might be a couple of enemies around so
     either fight or ignore, and go through the double gates at the far end.
    
     PERFOMANCE AREA
     Move ahead and check the seat to Heather's left for some items. Once you've
     grabbed them, head to the right of these seats and look for the bleacher seats
     in front of the stage. If you follow them around, eventually you'll find one
     with a square lamp beside it, and a rusted CHAIN sitting right at the end for
     you to take.
    
     Once you've grabbed it, make your way onto the stage by using the stairs at
     the far end of either side of it. Once you're up there, check the middle of
     the stage to find a RED SHOE. Once you've grabbed that, make your way off the
     stage and exit the area the same way you arrived.
    
     STAR TRAVEL PATH
     Run across to the far gate and use it.
    
     SWING ROCKET
     Head back towards the Swing Rocket and past it's control booth. Here you'll
     find another green gate, but if you check it - you'll find it won't budge at
     all. Climb up the stairs to the Swing Rocket platform, and go to the center of
     it. On the column in the middle, you should notice a short pipe sticking out
     of the side of it, creating what looks like a large handle on it's side. Use
     the CHAIN here.
    
     Return to the previous gate we examined and again, use the CHAIN here. Once
     both ends are attached, go into the nearby control cabin. There will be some
     HANDGUN AMMO to collect, and you'll find a large handle on the panel for
     controlling the Swing Rocket. Use it and a scene will take place showing the
     gate being broken open.
    
     Now it's open, you can use it to access the next area.
    
     TEA CUP RIDE
     A cutscene will take place once you're in this area. Once it's over run
     straight forward and use the gate in front of you, there isn't anything else
     in here.
    
     AMUSEMENT STREET
     To the right after you enter is a fortune tellers, so enter it.
    
     FORTUNE TELLER
     Check the seat just after you enter for a note book, which seems to be
     Douglas' notebook. Once you've read it, check it again to pick it up. Check
     the tables and chairs at the back of the Fortune Teller's for a DOLLS HEAD and
     maybe and AMPOULE. There is also a save spot here should you wish to save.
     When you're done, exit back outside.
    
     AMUSEMENT STREET
     Continue down the street and use the single door on the right side with the
     sign "MARCHEN TRAVEL" above it. Marchen means folk tale, a large clue for the
     puzzle inside, and another reoccurring theme for Silent Hill.
    
     MARCHEN TRAVEL
     Walk forward and you'll find two statues (or dolls as Heather likes to call
     them) to either side of a path. The one on the left is "a Snow White doll" and
     the one on the right is "a Cinderella doll" - both folk tales of course. They
     are part of the next puzzle from the game.
    
     ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
    
     PUZZLE #07 - DOLLY DILEMMA
    
     Check the railway track at the back of the room, and in the center you'll find
     some photos on the ground. Upon checking them you'll find they're photos of
     the shadows of the two dolls. As Heather notes, there is something wrong. If
     you look at them you realize something is in both pictures that aren't with
     the dolls.
    
     Snow White requires the doll head which looks like an apple. So go back and
     use the DOLL HEAD on the Snow White doll. Cinderella requires the red shoe, so
     go and use the RED SHOE on the Cinderella doll. Once both objects are in place
     the door at the back of the room will unlock.
    
     ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
    
     Follow the railway track at the back to the left and use the door there.
    
     DRAGONS CAVE
     Pass the large dragon to the right of Heather and you'll find two doors at the
     end. The one following the rail tracks doesn't work, but the metal door to the
     left does. Use it.
    
     MAGIC ICE CREAM
     Follow the path north and through the broken open gate. Watch out for any
     enemies around. By now you'll have seen an ice cream stand, so check it. At
     the left end is some ammo, but the most important thing to check is the
     notepad in the middle. Once you're done reading, go around the garden in front
     of the Ice Cream stand and look for the gates along the fence opposite.
    
     HAPPY CAROUSEL ENTRANCE
     Just after you enter, check the seat on the left side for a FIRST AID KIT.
     Once you've taken that, head towards the Carousel and go through the gate past
     the ticket office, and up the stairs leading onboard.
    
     HAPPY CAROUSEL
     Once you're on board, the Carousel will start up. Look for the Horse with the
     note attached to it's side. Another riddle awaits.
    
     ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
    
     PUZZLE #08 - CRAZY CAROUSEL
    
     Clue: "When 13 turns count 4, you will die from their curse.
            If you wish to escape, there is but one way out.
            To kill before you are killed: you will be saved by the 12th death."
    
     Basically this says with the game has counted to 52 (13 X 4) you will be
     killed if you haven't done the right thing. The remaining clue tells you that
     you need to kill 12 things... and what's around to be killed? The horses on
     the Carousel of course. And sure enough, not including the one with the note
     on it - there is exactly 12.
    
     Pull out a melee weapon (maul, katana etc. - katana is probably best though)
     and go around slicing each of the horses a few times until it makes dies and
     stops moving. Once you've done this to all 12, you'll hear a click sound, and
     a few seconds later they'll all start up again. A short while after that a
     couple of cutscenes will begin.
    
     ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
    
     BOSS #4 - MEMORY OF ALESSA
    
     Once the scenes are over you'll be confronted by the Memory Of Alessa. Dressed
     like Heather, but in a hellish state. Alessa has different states, which is
     basically just her with different weapons. Taking them out shouldn't be too
     hard, it's just a matter of positioning and timing, and the correct choice of
     weapons. With weapons however you can't stand still, and shoot head on as
     Alessa will block your shots. You can get around this by strafing (L1 and R1)
     while firing. If you know how to strafe well with the controls by now, using a
     gun will work without worrying about blocking too easily, and melee weapons on
     her is made all the more easier.
    
     The first "stage" is armed with a knife, and needs to get close to cause you
     damage. You can take this stage on with one of two choices - either a gun of
     some sort (I'd suggest the Handgun because while it's weak, you have distance
     advantage in this battle and saving stronger ammo would be a good idea -
     remember to strafe however) or deal to her with a melee weapon like the
     katana, which is generally faster than her knife attacks, and blocking her
     knife thrusts (R2 + Square) wherever possible.
    
     Once the first form is downed, she'll disappear into a puff of bloody smoke
     while she struggles around on the ground, and will eventually come back in the
     second form - armed with a handgun this time. The choice remains the same as
     before. You can take her on at a distance with a weapon of choice, while
     dodging any of her shots as best you can, and shooting her when you have the
     chance. Or with the melee weapon choice, come in close and lay into her as
     quick as you can, and try to avoid being pistol whipped by her. My personal
     choice is melee because it pistol whips do less than the bullets themselves,
     but the choice is up to you. Again, once she'd defeated in this form she'll
     disappear in the same bloody puff on the ground.
    
     The third form is equipped with a steel pipe. Melee weapons, while still an
     option, should probably be avoided for this one because the pipe has long
     reach and is moderately strong. At least strong enough to knock Heather over.
     This fight is made easier by distance and stronger weapons, although the
     handgun will still work fine if you want to spare the time strafe fighting.
     Once a number of shots have been put into her (or you've whacked her around a
     bit if you went that way) then she'll repeat the disappearing act to come back
     again.
    
     The fourth and final form is the most deadly - same as before, but armed this
     time with a sub machine gun! There is no correct weapons choice on this one,
     but the action is repeated much like the handgun. From a distance you're going
     to have to use the horses for cover while Alessa opens fire, then take shots
     at her (the stronger the weapon the better) while you can. Melee weapons will
     work for close range, and Alessa normally won't shoot the gun and just go back
     to whipping you with it. Of course she also has the tendency to run away from
     you and then open fire, so keep that in mind. The melee actually seems the
     easier option given the fact that being shot does way more damage. Once she's
     knocked over finally in this form, it's the end of the battle.
    
     ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
    
     Once the game stops the boss battle and you're returned back to the
     exploration, there will be red lettering on the floor - a note left by Alessa.
     Once you've read that, check around the outside of the carousel for the open
     gates leading into a archway (and yes, I do see there is some sort of
     undertone they're trying to put on this entrance and hallway - if you don't
     get it, then don't worry). Follow the hallway along and go through the doorway
     at the end.
    
     PATH TO THE GATE OF PARADISE
     Follow this long hallway along. At certain points along the path, there will
     be writing on the wall for you to read. Go up the sets of stairs at the end
     and use the "gate" at the end. Heather will read the note on it and then
     enter.

     CHAPEL
     Once the cutscene is over check the altar in front of the stain glass window
     for the "EYE OF NIGHT" TAROT CARD. There is a save point on the, what I can
     only assume is a bible, just behind you. Save if you want to. Also go around
     the outside of the room and check the paintings around the walls. It's best to
     start on the right side with the painting labeled "1. Origin" first. Once
     you're finished, go through the door to the right of the stain glass window
     where Claudia went.
    
     CHURCH HALLWAY
     Just to the left of where you enter is the "CHURCH MAP" on the wall. Take it.
     Turn around and go into the door behind you.
    
     CONFESSIONAL
     You'll hear someone crying. Check the open doorway for a long cutscene. At the
     end of it you'll be given the choice of forgiving the person or saying
     nothing. The choice you make will reflect upon the ending of the game you
     receive as part of many different conditions. Once the following scene is over
     and you're given back control, go back out into the hallway.
    
     CHURCH HALLWAY
     Follow the path and away from the chapel. Your radio will begin picking up
     static. The first junction you come to, the door ahead will be locked. Go down
     the small path to the east, and into the single door on the north side.
    
     MEETING ROOM
     There will be enemies in here, but they don't look like they normally do
     anymore. Kill them or avoid them, but exit the room through the other door.
    
     CHURCH HALLWAY B
     You'll be on the dirty and bloody side of the bars now. Walk ahead to the T-
     Junction. Watch out for any enemies about, but go to the southern end of this
     junction hallway and use the doorway there.
    
     BEDROOM
     Check the table in the back corner for a CASSETTE TAPE and some notes on the
     "Halo Of The Sun" as well. Check the bookshelves as well for some HANDGUN
     AMMO. Once you've grabbed everything, go back out into the hallway.
    
     CHURCH HALLWAY B
     Go north and use the northern most doorway.
    
     CHURCH HALLWAY C
     Run ahead. You might hear some crying and heavy footsteps, but don't worry
     about them for now. We'll get back to that. Follow the corner and the hallway
     to its end, and use the large double doors.
    
     HALO ROOM
     There is a massive version of the icon on the floor here, which can be used as
     a save point. Check the paintings around the room as well. When you're
     finished, exit back out to the hallway.
    
     CHURCH HALLWAY C
     Back out in the hallway, go around the corner to where the painting is. The
     crying and footsteps are located around here, and if you note - the footsteps
     slowly walk into the painting. Check the painting and tell Heather to move it,
     and you'll find there is a door behind. Use it.
    
     CHURCH HALLWAY D
     There isn't much in here, just run to the end and use the door there. If
     you're wondering what the noise is, look to the floor on Heather's right (the
     south side of the hallway). At the bottom there is something moving around
     behind the wall.
    
     CENTRAL CHURCH
     You'll come into a weird open area of the Church here. Watch out for the edge
     though, because you don't want to fall off. As you walk around the outside and
     pass a large metal elevator, there will be a smaller version of the missionary
     monster you fought earlier in the game. But this is hardly as tough to fight.
     Fight it or ignore it, but follow the hallway around the outside right to the
     far eastern end of it, and then use the only accessible door there.
    
     LIBRARY
     Walk around the Library and check out a few of the open books on the shelves.
     Once you're finished reading, check the desk at the southern end of the room
     for the "MOON" TAROT CARD. Once you've taken it a cutscene will take place,
     and when that's over you'll have the BOOK: OTHERWORLD LAWS. Exit the Library.

     EXTRA NEW GAME BONUS - EXTRA COSTUME CODE
    
     If you play the game on Hard Riddle then when you arrive in the Library, there
     will be notes stuck to pages of books in here. They include the following
     notes:
    
     Note 1 - "A secret told before you awake: the start of a new transformation."
     Note 2 - "There's no separating numbers from beginning to end."
     Note 3 - "14 buttons all told; therefore, one is always two."
     Note 4 - "The first number is 'the traveler to St. Ives.'"
     Note 5 - "The second number is 'the hare wear a crown of straw.'"
     Note 6 - "The third number is 'king of beasts and goddess of harvests.'"
     Note 7 - "The fourth number is 'representative of both knight and page.'"
     Note 8 - "The fifth number is 'lapis lazuli or turquoise.'"
    
     Note one tells you what you'll get. Note two tells you that the code is one
     long code of numbers. Three tells you how many digits there are and that each
     of the number answers is made of 2 digits. Note's 4-8 are the clues, and all
     have to do with various myths, stories, and sorts of things you'd expect to
     learn in books I guess. But I honestly didn't know many of them. The answer
     was given already on the list of costumes, and I'm still trying to figure out
     some of these. What I do have is below.
    
     First Number - There is one traveler to St. Ives as goes the whole tale. He's
     the guy that tells the story, and is the answer to the question at the end.
    
      "As I was going to St. Ives, I met a man with seven wives.
       Each wife had seven sacks.
       Each sack had seven cats.
       Each cat had seven kits.
       Kits, cats, sacks and wives, how many were going to St. Ives?"
    
     Which then gives the number 01, one traveler.
    
     Second Number - I tried to think of everything I could, but couldn't think of
     anything which would fit. The answer to this is 03 however. If you know why
     this is then please feel free to contact me.
    
     After my terrible lack of even a stab in the dark I had a lot of people
     e-mailing me to suggest the concept of the March Hare which makes sense to me.
     Here's an explination from Aylic.
    
     "I think it probably refers to the concept of the March Hare, something which
      comes from the fact that March is the month when hares mate and because of
      it act in extremely bizarre ways.  This was referred to in, among other
      places, Alice in Wonderland where it says..  'The March Hare ... as this is
      May, it won't be raving mad - at least not so mad as it was in March'.  In
      certain illustrations of the March Hare he also wears straw in his hair,
      this is a symbol from Victorian times, both in art and on the stage, of
      madness.  Put it all together, and it really does sound like it's the March
      Hare, and since March is the third month."
    
     A huge thanks to Norichika Umeda, Riff, mdx, and anyone else who e-mailed me
     about the March Hare.
    
     Third Number - I'm taking a shot in the dark with this one, so if you can come
     up with something better or know exactly how it comes about - please e-mail
     me. The King Of Beasts is a Lion, or in general astrological terms - Leo. The
     month of Leo is August, and this is also the time when the goddess of harvests
     is generally called upon (as August is the break point for crops). The month
     of August is the 8th month of the year, giving the third number as 08.
    
     Forth Number - This one I did figure out, and it kinda has to do playing
     cards, and something I was told when I was younger. What represents the knight
     and page is: the Jack card in a deck of playing cards. Playing cards, believe
     it or not, originated from the minor arcana of Tarot, but each of the four
     arcana (cups, wands or rods, coins or pentacles, and swords) consisted of 14
     cards, not 13 like their is in a suit of cards as we know now. When the arcana
     were changed into playing cards, two of the cards were changed into one - this
     was the Knight and Page, and this became the Jack card. As for how we get a
     number from this, well the Jack is card number 11 in the order of things, so
     this is the 4th number - 11.
    
     The fifth number was easy too. Turquoise, or lapis lazuli, is the birthstone
     for the month of December, the 12th month.
    
     The final answer for the costume, with no spaces is: 01_03_08_11_12
    
     ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
    
     CENTRAL CHURCH
     Make your way back around the outside to the large metal elevator you passed
     just after you first came in here. Use it and you'll be taken downstairs to
     the floor below. After you get off the elevator, follow the path north and go
     into the door close to the elevator you just got off.
    
     CHURCH HALLWAY E
     Follow this hallway along until it splits. Ignore the path going south for
     now, and continue ahead and into the doorway at the end.
    
     MORGUE
     I guess. Which is odd to be here you'd think. Anyway, check the body right
     In front of you where you'll find the "HANGED MAN" TAROT CARD sitting on top
     if you check him from the side. If you check the empty part of the morgue to
     the north, you'll find a box of SHOTGUN SHELLS there to collect as well. Once
     you've grabbed everything, go back outside.
    
     CHURCH HALLWAY E
     Go back to the junction and follow the path to the south we ignored earlier.
     Follow it along and around the corner and use the door at the end.
    
     ALTERNATE HARRY'S BEDROOM
     Creepy. If you check the table near the bed you'll find some STUN GUN
     BATTERIES sitting on top. Check the bed itself and you'll find a diary of
     Harry's is sitting on top. Once you've read it, return to the hallway.
    
     CHURCH HALLWAY E
     Follow the path back along and return to the "CENTRAL CHURCH" area. Watch out
     for any enemies which may appear in here though as you make your way back.
    
     CENTRAL CHURCH
     Follow the path along and around to the south side. Ignore the first two doors
     you come to (they don't work) and use the third to access a new area.
    
     CENTRAL CHURCH 2
     On this side there will be more enemies, so kill them or ignore them, but make
     your way to the doors on the west side. The first one is covered in bars, but
     the one most to the south is useable and will go into yet another new area.
    
     CHURCH HALLWAY F
     Run ahead and use the first door to Heather's left (the south side of the
     hallway).
    
     EMPTY ROOM
     Well it's not exactly empty. There are enemies in here. But you can't tell
     what the room was. Kill or avoid the enemies and use the single door on the
     far side.
    
     CHURCH HALLWAY G
     Run ahead and you'll hear the crying and the footsteps again. A high angle
     will show a hidden doorway is in the wall, and the steps will lead towards it.
     The other end of this hallway is a dead end, so just use the hidden door. A
     cutscene will show Heather opening it. Follow this new short hall to it's end,
     and use the doorway there.
    
     NEGATIVE NOSTALGIA
     This will bring back many memories not just for Heather but for a lot of
     people playing. Check the chair for a book and the "FOOL" TAROT CARD. Once
     you're done reading the book, check a few of the objects in the room, and grab
     the AMPOULE and HANDGUN AMMO sitting nearby too. Once you're finished, return
     back out into the hallway.
    
     CHURCH HALLWAY G
     Return to the main part of the hall, and head back north towards the "EMPTY
     ROOM" at the end. Watch out because some enemies might appear on your way
     back.
    
     EMPTY ROOM
     Woah, more enemies. Way more enemies. Kill them or run through the room and
     back into the hallway at the other side.
    
     CHURCH HALLWAY F
     Once you're back here, follow the hallway west and across the bridge like
     section of the area. Once you're across it, turn a left and follow the hallway
     down to the end and enter the doorway there.
    
     CHILDS ROOM
     And another case of Deja Vu. There is plenty of things to check here. Firstly,
     there is a save point on the shelf just after you enter. Save if you wish.
     Beside this shelf are many wall hangings with butterflies. One of these also
     has a BRASS KEY on it, so take it. Check the table and you'll find another
     Silent Hill notepad with more jottings by Harry. Check some of the items on
     the floors and walls for more little tidbits, and then finally take note of
     the "Drawing Block" sitting on the bed. Inside it is some clues for the door
     at the end, but we can't use this yet until we have all the cards. Return
     outside.
    
     CHURCH HALLWAY F
     It's time for some major backtracking. Run to the end of the hallway and exit
     back out into the "CENTRAL CHURCH 2" area.
    
     CENTRAL CHURCH 2
     Run around the outside and use the door you gained access in here with.
    
     CENTRAL CHURCH
     Run around the outside to the elevator and use it to get up to the top floor.
     Once you're there, head north and into the "CHURCH HALLWAY D" hall.
    
     CHURCH HALLWAY D
     Run straight through here to the door at the other end.
    
     CHURCH HALLWAY C
     Take the left and head towards the door leading into the next hallway.
    
     CHURCH HALLWAY B
     Run forward and turn right, then take the doorway which leads into the
     "MEETING ROOM" area.
    
     MEETING ROOM
     The room will drastically change as you enter it. There will also be some more
     enemies making this even harder. The room will eventually change back if you
     can't find your way out, but you'll have to kill the enemies in the time it
     takes if you can run to the door. Either way, once you can, use the other door
     to exit the room.
    
     CHURCH HALLWAY
     More wall changing is going on as you enter this hallway again. Take the turn
     to the south and go to the locked door we saw earlier when we first entered
     this place. Check the door to use the BRASS KEY and unlock it. Go through.
    
     CHURCH HALLWAY H
     Follow the hallway south and around the first corner. There will be a door
     directly to your left which isn't blocked, so use it.
    
     CLASSROOM
     More spooky vu-ness. Back in a classroom from Midwich in Silent Hill. All the
     desks have moved around outside from the a lone desk in the center. Examine it
     for some notes by Heather. Also check the book sitting up the front desk for
     something from our old friend K. Gordon. Exit the room using the door at this
     end of the class.
    
     CHURCH HALLWAY H
     Run ahead and you'll find three doors. Two on the west and one on the east
     side of the hallway. Ignore the one on the east unless you just want to kill
     enemies, because there is nothing in there but many-mini-missionaries and no
     items. Check the first door on the west side instead.
    
     BEDROOM 2
     Check the desk for some notes about Vincent from a "L.S." then check the
     bookcase to find a tape deck. Here you can use the CASSETTE TAPE for a taped
     conversation between Vincent and one of the followers. Once it's finished exit
     the room.
    
     CHURCH HALLWAY H
     Continue down the hallway and use the last door on the west side.
    
     BEDROOM 3
     Firstly check the bed for the "HIGH PRIESTESS" TAROT CARD. Once you've taken
     that, check the shelf for Claudia's diary, and the desk by the bed for a
     birthday card which Alessa gave Claudia on her 6th Birthday. Once you've
     checked everything, exit the room. It's time for more backtracking.
    
     CHURCH HALLWAY H
     Follow the hallway to the end where you first entered.
    
     CHURCH HALLWAY
     Follow the path east again, and go through the door beside the bars.
    
     MEETING ROOM
     Go through this room and use the other door again.
    
     CHURCH HALLWAY B
     Follow the path left, to the north, and use the door at the end again.
    
     CHURCH HALLWAY C
     Follow the hallway to the door which was behind the painting, and use it.
    
     CHURCH HALLWAY D
     Follow this hallway straight to the end.
    
     CENTRAL CHURCH
     Run south and use the elevator to go downstairs. Once you're there, follow the
     path and use the door which leads into the next part of the "CENTRAL CHURCH"
     area.
    
     CENTRAL CHURCH 2
     Follow the path around the outside and use the doorway at the end.
    
     CHURCH HALLWAY F
     Run straight ahead and across the bridge. Take the sharp hidden left, and run
     to the end and use the doorway there.
    
     CHILDS ROOM
     Back in here, we can finally access the doorway with the Tarot Cards. Check
     the Drawing Block again for the clues for this puzzle.

     PUZZLE #09 - TAROT TWISTER
    
     Easy   - There is no written clue for this puzzle. Instead, all of the answers
              are drawn on one of the pages instead. The answer is always the same.
    
                           Fool           ------------           Moon
    
                           ------------   Eye Of Night   ------------
    
                           Hanged Man     ------------      Priestess
    
              As soon as the last card is in place, the door will unlock.
    
     Normal -    "The door sure does rattle, but it's stuck tight. A secret is
               hidden out of your sight! You may be thinking 'What could it be?'
               You'll need five magic cards if you want to see.
                  What to do, then, with all these? I'll tell you straight and I
               won't tease--Just as long as you say 'please'.
                  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's 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 crown, 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 must
               not omit. And now at the last, before you take a whack. Here's one
               more hint to help keep you 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.
                  So you'll open the door? I'm just sure that there'll Be nothing
               beyond it but frightening peril. Forget about that! Just stay and
               play! Or else I'll be left here alone all day."
    
              Once again, lets follow this from the start. Once you're past the
              first two setup paragraphs, the next one gives you some clues. All
              the rows have at least one card, and no rows have three cards. From
              there, it's onto the cards.
    
              The "upside-down man" is clearly the Hanged Man (you only need to
              look at the card to see this). If he's "under the ground" then he's
              at the bottom of the three rows. But where? Well he doesn't have
              anyone to his left or right, so he goes in the middle of the bottom
              row.
    
              The moon is "up in the sky", "floating high" meaning it's in the top
              row. No location is mentioned, but it on the head of a crazy clown.
              The Fool. This puts the Moon somewhere up the top and the Fool
              somewhere in the middle row. We just don't know where yet.
    
              Next is the Priestess, or "your Excellency" - and clearly if she
              looks to the nights sky and the night and moon is above her, then
              she goes into the middle row. Just where however, we don't know
              just yet.
    
              Finally that leaves the Eye Of Night. Seeing as we know the night
              needs to be at the top, above the High Priestess, then it's in the
              top row. And thankfully we've been given a position for that which
              is the left side. This places the Eye of Night at the top left, and
              the High Priestess at the middle left. So currently you should have:
    
                           Eye Of Night   ------------   ------------
    
                           Priestess      ------------   ------------
    
                           ------------   Hanged Man     ------------
    
    
              This leaves two positions for the Moon/Fool combo of either
              top-center and center, or, top-right and middle-right. One of these
              is the correct answer. I'll leave it up to you to finish it.

                  That's 'cause it's scary to write only the truth. But dreams...
               dreams are like lies, after all."
    
               This is only made hard by the fact the scribbles on the paper aren't
               always clear. I was scratching my head at the fact that some of the
               I's look like L instead. But anyway, this is one of the more simple
               puzzles in the hard more. The "fibs" are the letters that aren't
               considered roman numerals that appear (0, I, V, and X). But that
               will also leave you with some overly large numerals leaving 0 in a
               lot of them, so there is certain ones where you must remove 0 to
               work it out. All the other letters should be thrown out. That will
               give you the following:
    
                                          II XXIII XVII
    
                                          XX   0   XVIII
    
                                         XII  XXII XI
    
               Now you have to match these numbers with those printed on the Tarot
               Cards. That isn't an easy thing to with the game graphics, so here's
               the list of cards and numerals for you.
    
               Fool           - 0     (Zero)
               High Priestess - II    (Two)
               Hanged Man     - XII   (Twelve)
               Moon           - XVIII (Eighteen)
               Eye Of Night   - XXIII (Twenty Three)
    
               Match the roman numerals from the card to the correct places above
               for the 5 slots to unlock the door. The Fool goes in the center.
               I'll let you match the remaining four yourself, it's not that hard
               anymore :)
    
     ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
    
     Before you go through the door, it would be a good idea to save you game using
     the save point in this room. When you're ready, go through the door.

     WINDING HALLWAY
     Follow the winding hallway down all the stairs and corners to it's end. Once
     you reach the open room, check the fan at the end... nice effect with the
     triple blades there. When you're finished being tripped out by the fan, turn
     around and head to the northern end of this large room, and through the double
     doors you'll find there.
    
     THE "OTHER" CHURCH (THATS WHERE YOU MUST GO :))
     Once the cutscene has finished, you'll be in control of Heather again. You can
     look around the room, but there is nothing to collect anyway. Don't walk
     behind Claudia because it'll be game over and don't try and kill her either,
     or ditto. Instead go into your inventory and use the PENDANT you've been
     carrying during the entire game. Another cutscene will begin. Once that scene
     is over, run ahead and Heather will jump into the hole. The next cutscene will
     begin, and when that finishes the final battle begins.
    
     ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
    
     BOSS #5 - THE GOD
    
     Before you begin, know that if you only use a melee weapon for this fight
     (Katana is probably your best bet) that you'll earn a sub-machine gun with
     unlimited ammo on your next play through. To do this, you'll have to wait for
     the god to drop down to it's crouched position, rather than knocking it down -
     then run up and hack at it a few times until it goes back up to standing.
     Repeat this until it's dead and you'll earn the sub-machine gun. **
    
     For normal tactics, this is how to go about. Pull out a gun, such as the
     handgun, and shoot at the standing god a few times until you knock it over.
     Once it's down on the ground, grab a stronger weapon and begin taking at it as
     best you can. This can either be a weapon like the shotgun or machine gun or
     a melee weapon if you so choose.
    
     The God's attacks a few, so you'll just have to keep an eye out for them. It
     can swipe with either arm (depending on what is the most close to you) or if
     you're in front of it's head, headbutt you instead. If you shoot at it from
     out of it's reach then it'll start a chain of fire after you. This can be easy
     to avoid as long as you run in a wide circle around it. Don't stand still at
     all while it's around because even if you're not in the semi-circle it
     originally follows, it'll move out of that pattern and make a line where you
     are standing.
    
     If you come close to it in it's standing position it can still swipe at you
     even with it's head attached to the wall, so avoid getting too close while it
     is in it's standing position.
    
     Eventually after shooting it enough times (or bashing it, slicing it, or
     whatever) it'll keel over and die, and a cutscene will begin where Heather
     kicks it a couple of times).
    
     ** I've later been e-mailed by Innominatus and several others that it doesn't
        actually require you to finish off the boss with the melee weapon right
        through, only that the finishing blow has to be with the melee weapon to
        earn the sub-machine gun. Cheap I guess (wish I'd know before I went and
        killed the boss with just the katana) but at least we also proved you can
        finish off the final boss with no guns too. :D
    
     ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
    
     More cutscenes will take place, of different sorts depending on the ending
     you've gained. After that, the credits will roll, and you'll be taken to the
     ranking screen. Congratulations, you've finished Silent Hill 3. How about a
     replay on another difficulty level? Or for a different ending? Or for more
     extra weapons? Good luck. :)

     SILENT HILL 3 ENDING REQUIREMENTS
    
     Silent Hill 3 has three different endings. The guide has already covered one
     of the three, the "Revenge" UFO ending earlier - but I will re-explain this
     as well as cover the other two endings.
    
    
     "NORMAL" ENDING
    
     Basically this is what you'll get for following through on the game as normal.
     The only reason you won't get this is if you follow the information as it is
     noted below (and this could happen by accident as well if you hadn't known)
     although it's not always easy for people to get anything BUT the normal
     ending of the game.
    
    
     "POSSESSED" ENDING
    
     This ending changes the final scene of the game that takes place. To receive
     this ending you need to do the following:
    
     - Kill as many enemies as you can. This doesn't mean everything, but a large
       number - normally over 100 - will do.
     - Be damaged a lot and run around needing health a lot. At the end your total
       damage is shown in points and needs to be over 2000 (although if you get
       over 4000 you're more than likely to get this ending).
     - Forgive in the confessional. When you get to the church and go inside,
       you'll have the option to forgive or not say anything. Forgive and you'll be
       putting the final nail in the "Possessed" ending. :p
    
     To not get this ending, avoid the previous three steps (kill only what you
     need to, avoid damage and heal when required, and don't say anything or even
     totally avoid the confessional section.
    
    
     "REVENGE" UFO ENDING
    
     This ending was discussed at the correct section of the game, which is when
     you arrive home to the Daisy Villa Apartments.  At this point of the game you
     can earn a bonus ending, but only if you've met the right requirements to do
     so.
    
     This involves the Heather Beam which you may have earned, or may not yet have
     earned. But either way you'll need to know these requirements when you start a
     "Extra New Game", rather than just when you arrive at the apartments to get
     the ending. To get the Heather Beam either check at the start of the guide or
     just down below at the full listing of secrets.
    
     You need to use the Heather Beam to kill more than 30 enemies. You can't use
     any other weapons except the Heather Beam, and even killing them by kicking
     them will count against this ending - the kill count for shooting and
     fighting has to be 0 and this is the only way to do it.
    
     When you enter the Apartment the "Revenge" ending will take place.
    
     ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
    
     07  //  02  //  c o s t u m e s
    
     "EXTRA COSTUME" OPTION
    
     Once you've completed the game once over, you'll unlock both the Extra Costume
     option and one bonus costume (the "Heather" Shirt code - 'HappyBirthDay').
     Using this option you can enter codes to receive t-shirts/costume changes for
     Heather in the game, starting with the Heather shirt.
    
     Some of the designs are odd, other basic, and some are also for gaming
     magazines and websites. In total there are 26 costumes, but at this time
     there is only so many codes known. The codes already known are unlocked by
     completing certain difficulty levels, solving extra puzzles, and looking at
     certain things within the game.
    
     The full list of shirts is below, with the currently known codes listed beside
     them. If you know a code for a shirt which doesn't currently have a code for
     it, then please e-mail me at mcgregorr@xtra.co.nz with the subject "Silent
     Hill 3 T-Shirt Code" or something similar.
    
     It's worth noting that all the shirts that took time to get were the ones by
     gaming companies, which means they aren't releasing their T-shirt code yet (in
    some cases this makes sense - USA ones basically seeing as the game is there
    last)
     but others not so much so, especially the online ones like GameSpy and IGN
     who, even though they're in the US, could have still used PAL gamers interest.
     It's also odd that there is no Japanese magazine/sites shirts as well - maybe
     in Japan only?

     The magazine based codes won't work on the PC edition of the game, generally
     because they're all console format magazines for the most part.
    
     One final note, is if you just unlocked a costume by inserting the code and
     then begin an "Extra New Game" Heather will start the game wearing it!

     COMPLETE LISTING OF SECRETS & EXTRAS
    
     And finally, just so you don't have to go through the entire guide just to
     find the one piece of secrets info, here's an entire listing of all the
     extras mentioned in the guide - and then some.
    
    
     EXTRA OPTIONS
    
     As with the previous two Silent Hill games, Silent Hill 3 contains an extra
     option menu. Once you're in the basic option menu for the game press L1 or R1,
     just like with the first two games. A secondary menu will come up with a bunch
     of bonus options. More options will also be added upon completing certain
     extras or doing certain things.
    
    
     BEGINNER MODE
    
     Should you die a few times in the game, even on easy action mode, you'll be
     told you have unlocked the "Beginner Mode" in the "Extra Options" menu. If you
     go into that menu you'll be able to switch it on or off in any current game
     to make it easier. Of course, I don't believe you can earn any extras with it
     turned on.
    
    
     EXTREME ACTION MODE
    
     Once you complete Hard Action mode, the Extreme Action mode will unlock
     stating with "Extreme 1" when you go to select your difficulties. Once you've
     finished this mode, the level will change to "Extreme 2" and each completion
     after will change this again, right up to "Extreme X" (or 10).
    
    
     BULLET ADJUST
    
     Once you've completed the game once, the classic bullet adjustment feature
     will appear in the "Extra Options" menu. This allows you to increase the
     number of bullets gained for each box of ammo you collect. For each time you
     complete the game the maximum multiplier will increase up to X5.
    
    
     QUICK BULLET ADJUST
    
     Save before the final boss then finish the game. Save your results in another
     slot and not over the final save. Reload the save for the final boss and beat
     the boss again. This will increase the bullet adjust without having to play
     through the game again as it saves the number of wins to the system file save.
    
    
     LIFE DISPLAY
    
     Complete the game on Hard-Hard Action and Riddle difficulties and you'll
     unlock this display feature which gives you a bar in the top left of your
     screen showing you your amount of health and stamina. This can be switched on
     or off in the "Extra Option" menu as well. This bar is extremely helpful for
     the Heather Beam/Sexy Beam because it relies upon how much stamina you have.
    
    
     EXTRA NEW GAME DOUGLAS / CLASSIC KONAMI
    
     Once you've completed the game once highlight the "Extra New Game" option and
     press Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, Circle, X. Then select
     your two difficulty options, and you'll hear the code being confirmed. Take
     special notice of Douglas when he appears during the opening scenes. The code
     you used is the classic Konami code which has become infamous over many years.
     The buttons at the end may change, but the directions never do.
    
     This code however doesn't work for the PC version.
    
    
     SILENT HILL 2 / EXTRA NEW GAME SCENES
    
     If you have a completed Silent Hill 2 save file on the same memory card as
     your Silent Hill 3 file, then you'll receive 4 additional scenes/text
     throughout the game. These scenes are mentioned at the appropriate parts of
     the guide in detail, but just for a quick listing - the locations are:
    
     - Toilet Stall in the Alternate Woman's Bathroom of the Shopping Mall
     - Mailboxes in Daisy Villa Apartments
     - Heaven's Night Bar in Silent Hill (Check the stage at the back)
     - Fence on the roof of the Brookhaven Hospital which James was pushed through
       in SH2
    
     If you don't have a completed save file of SH2 on your memory card, then you
     can receive all 4 of these references once you begin your second game.
    
     Many people have e-mailed to say certain parts of SH2 seem to unlock the
     various scenes in SH3, for example you have to pull out the wallet in the
     toilet in SH2 to get the scene in the toilets near the start of SH3, etc.
    
     I've also had e-mails to say that as long as the save is on a memory card
     in your PS2 then it will work (ie. your SH3 save is on Memory Card 1 and
     your SH2 save is on Memory Card 2).
    
    
     EXTRA NEW GAME CHANGES
    
     When you replay the game with the Extra New Game option, certain sections of
     the walls in the underpass will change as you make your way into the area
     in real time, and then change back at certain other points. This doesn't
     happen the first time you play the game, only on replays as mentioned.
    
    
     EXTRA NEW GAME BONUS ITEM + 1 - HEATHER BEAM (AND SEXY BEAM)
    
     Once you've killed 333 or more enemies with standard weapons (that is no bonus
     unlimited ammo ones) in Silent Hill 3 you'll be rewarded with the Heather Beam
     weapon.
    
     This basically is an energy weapon that Heather shoots from her eyes when she
     has no other weapons equipped. It uses Heather's stamina to power it's energy,
     so it would be a good idea to finish the game in Hard-Hard at least once to
     unlock the Life/Stamina status bar in the Extra Options menu for this.
    
     The beam has two different modes which you can get. The first, energy beams,
     are easy to use from a distance as long as Heather has a target in her range,
     and will even go through solid objects. The only let down is the amount of
     time it takes to start which means it lessens it's effectiveness at close
     range. This is done by holding R2 and pressing X.
    
     The second, are octagonal blasts of energy. These bounce off walls and travel
     a lengthy distance. Again, close range is sometimes effected with these shots
     as well. To produce these blasts of energy, hold R2 and press up+X. Once
     Heather starts firing them, let go of up so Heather doesn't stand there firing
     them to the roof.
    
     To get the Sexy Beam you'll need to equip Heather's bonus costume named
     "Transform" (it's actually a key rather than a T-shirt). It will transform her
     into the "Princess Heart" and the Heather Beam will become the Sexy Beam with
     no weapons equipped. The Sexy Beam is a little quicker and more direct than
     the standard beam, and also has two different modes.
    
     The first, the standard R2+X mode, fires off several beams as well as one
     octagons at a time. The second, the R2+Up+X one, fires direct eye energy
     beams - best described as "Superman" heat beam style. You can direct the focus
     of this using the analog stick or d-pad.
    
     This weapon is also used to get the "Revenge" (UFO) ending of Silent Hill 3 as
     mentioned above.
    
    
     EXTRA NEW GAME BONUS ITEM + 2 - UNLIMITED SUB MACHINE GUN ON REPLAY
    
     If you finished the game and defeated the final boss with a melee weapon
     then you would have been told of this reward during your ranking. It is
     located right at the start of the game after you climb out the bathroom
     window. If you run to the closest end of the alley where a bunch of boxes are
     stacked you'll find it sitting on top.
    
    
     EXTRA NEW GAME BONUS ITEM +3 - FLAMETHROWER
    
     If you've completed the game once on Normal/Hard mode with your end rank being
     more enemies killed shooting instead of fighting then you'll find a
     FlameThrower sitting on the counter in Helen's Bakery.
    
     It has unlimited ammo as well. Check out the slightly edited bakery flyer
     sitting beneath it too. I WOULD like some crispy toasted dead with my new
     flamethrower thanks. If you don't get this weapon on your first playthrough,
     you'll get another one instead, and you'll get this after your second
     playthrough.
    
    
     EXTRA NEW GAME BONUS ITEM +4 - BEAM SABER
    
     At the top end of the first service corridor where you exited the second
     storeroom where the Key was stuck in a wooden pallet, check the door at the
     very end of the hallway for something odd. Heather will find the doorknob
     comes off and is actually some sort of lightsaber weapon! Cool!!!
    
     You'll receive this weapon if you defeated more enemies by fighting rather
     than by shooting your first time through, or just given to you on your second
     play through if you got the other weapon, the FlameThrower, instead.
    
    
     EXTRA NEW GAME BONUS +5 & +6 - GOLD AND SILVER PIPES
    
     For these items, you need to be in the small sewer pool room where you chuck
     the hair dryer into the water.
    
     In the Extra New Game replay, go to the sides of the pool and press X and
     you'll be asked if you wish to drop the steel pipe into the pool. If you
     select yes, you'll be approached by a woman carrying a gold and silver pipe.
     If you answer the questions honestly, you'll be rewarded with both the gold
     and silver pipes as well as keeping your steel pipe. If you answer with a lie,
     then you'll not gain either pipes and loose your steel one as well.
    
     The woman is supposed to be a representation of the Mercury, the Roman god of
     trade (& profit) as well as merchants and travelers. It's clear to say
     Heather and this event fit that quite well. The reason for this event seems
     to be derived from one of Aesop's Fables, titled "Mercury and the Workmen."
     You can read the fable here:
    
     http://www.aesopfables.com
     http://www.pacificnet.net/~johnr/cgi/aesop1.cgi?3&MercuryandtheWorkmen
    
     This fable isn't the first time the idea has appeared in videogame form, as
     many people have noted - the same idea was used in Zelda: Link To The Past on
     the GBA, and Harvest Moon. The pipes themselves don't seem to give any extra
     powers, much as Heather notes. Too bad there are no vampires or werewolves
     around though, or else that silver pipe might have come in handy. :p
    
     Many thanks to Blue Phoenix at the Dark Legacy forums for this tidbit of info
     on the source of the scene. And mexiun at GameFAQ's for mentioning Harvest
     Moon.
    
    
     EXTRA ITEM - SILENCER
    
     If you check the wall just around the corner from where you entered the room
     on the 5th floor of the Construction Site, you'll notice a patch of the wall
     which is different looking than the rest of the wall. Equip your maul and
     smash it against the wall a few times as hard as you can and it'll break the
     wall. In it you'll find a SILENCER for your handgun or sub machine gun.
    
     Clearly the whole discolored wall hiding something, as well as the Silencer
     item itself, would seem to be Metal Gear Solid references. Nice job. :) There
     is also someone buried in the wall too, just for that Silent Hill touch. Guess
     it must have been the person who was staying/squatting there.
    
     The item isn't a bonus weapon, and can be used with no problems on rank or
     otherwise. It's just a normal item, only hidden.
    
    
     ITEM INFO - PERFUME
    
     Once you've collected the Perfume in the game, Heather will go onto keep this
     for the remainder of the game. It has two options - Use and Equip. There
     doesn't ever seem to be any use for the item from here onwards, so it only
     leaves the Equip option. Of course, as Heather notes - "This stuff smells a
     little strange" - and rightly so. Basically this item is a bad item. What it
     does is attracts enemies to you when it is equipped. The only good point you
     could see out of that perhaps is if you're going for a high kill rate. Either
     way however, it's best to ignore the item once you've collected it.
    
     Equipping it during the boss fight with Leonard however also seems to be in
     your advantage, as it seems to stop him from closing in on you.
    
    
     CHEAP FINAL BOSS KILL
    
     If you stand in front of the final bosses right arm when it's in it's prone
     position and equip the maul you should be able to attack it without it
     attacking you. Thanks to Raz and several others who e-mailed in the same hint.

     07  //  04  //  r a n k i n g  i n f o r m a t i o n
    
     Before I begin, I can't call this a fool proof ranking guide - I can only take
     some guesses with the information I've gained through several playthroughs of
     the game thus far. If you want to submit your ending stats and any info that
     may help work out the gold rankings and final ranks, then please feel free to
     e-mail.
    
     As far as I can figure, the ranking is set for all levels - so it doesn't
     matter that killing a boss in hard will take longer than in easy just by the
     difficulty change, you're expected to beat the time in hard still.
    
     - Ending Type
       This category doesn't reflect on your ending. I've received all three and it
       never seems to do much (well, except maybe possessed - but just because
       you're not playing the whole game through getting it).
     - Action Level/Riddle Level
       This one is easy. Hard will get you gold in both. In action, Extreme will
       also get gold too obviously.
     - Clear Time
       Right now I'm leaning to under 2:40 minutes for gold. My fastest time was
       just under this at 2:37:23, but I've had times of just over 3 hours (3:02)
       which got only 5 stars, rather than the 10 which gives you gold. Various
       sources suggest it only needs to be under three hours.
     - Split worm kill time
       I'm guessing less than 1:30... _maybe_ 2:00 (I have no time between the two
       so I'm not sure). Under 2 seems likely.
     - Missionary kill time
       I'm going for less than 2 minutes. I have no proof though, as only once
       did I get gold in this - and that was using the machine gun (16 seconds in
       Easy :p). The next closest time was 2:23 which only got 1 star.
     - Leonard kill time
       Another 1:30 to 2:00 guess. I got gold with exactly 1:30. The only next one
       up I've had was 3:12 which didn't (again, just one star).
     - Memory of Alessa kill time
       3:30 or less. I'm fairly sure of this one.
     - The god kill time
       I know it's under 8 minutes for gold at least (could even be more). I guess
       this is to allow you to still get gold if you try to kill it with melee
       weapons for the bonus (and doing so gets you .2 more on your overall score).
     - Clear Number
       3 or more clear will get you a gold rank.
     - Save & Continue number
       I'm still not sure on this yet, but my guess is 2, maybe 3, will still
       allow you to get gold. I had 4 saves, and it gave me 4 stars... so less than
       this will likely give you gold.
     - Item Number
       So far the least amount of items I've collected was 149 and it still gave me
       gold. From the "Revenge" ending I got 19/20 stars for just 99 items, so it's
       all but possible you only need to collect 100 items or more to get gold.
     - Defeated enemy by shooting
       The lowest I've gotten which still got me gold was 96 enemies shot dead. I
       would believe lower than this will still get you gold, but perhaps less than
       80 or maybe 70 won't.
     - Defeated enemy by fighting
       My guess is this is the same as the shooting one. To get the numbers even
       you'd need to stomp on or slice up as many enemies as you shot dead.
     - Total damage
       My guess would be less than 500 points of damage.
     - Rank reduction
       Using bonus weapons takes away one whole point of your final total, however
       I've still gotten my highest ranking even with using bonus weapons.
    
     As mentioned, apart from basic ranks in each category there are certain things
     which improve rank as well - however I've only figured out so far one thing,
     which is killing the final boss with a melee weapon. Bonus weapons, while
     reducing rank, will actually pick up the final ranking in other areas (like
     quick boss kills, number of enemies killed, and the speed in which you
     progress through the game).
    
     While untested, this is what I would think would be a high ranking game:
     Fast moving Hard-Hard game of less than 2:40, using bonus weapons to kill
     enemies and bosses, collecting 100 items, killing many enemies (140-160) but
     alternating between shooting and kicking, and hardly getting a scratch on you.
    
     Impossible? Perhaps, but we shall see. :)
    
     Arcade Velmistr from GameFAQ's sent me his list of the stats for getting a
     gold rank back at the end of July. Since then too there have been a couple of
     gold rank guides published. The knowledge is out there all right. Thanks
     Arcade Velmistr.
    
     Action Level: HARD (or EXTREME 1-X)
     Riddle Level: HARD
     Clear Time: under 3:00:00 hours
     Split Worm Kill Time: under 2 minutes
     Missionary Kill Time: under 2 minutes
     Leonard Kill Time: under 3 minutes
     Memory Of Alessa K.T.: under 3 minutes
     The God Kill Time: under 8 minutes
     Clear Number: 3 and more
     Save And Continue Number: 2 or less*
     Item Number: more than 100
     Extra Weapon: 5**
     Def. Enemies By Shooting: 75 and more
     Def. Enemies By Fighting: 75 and more
     Total Damage: less than 500
    
     *Means 2 saves and 0 continues for my gameplay.
     **I do not want to go into this in detail, but I think the Heather Beam is not
       counted as an Extra Weapon in the Game Result.

     Minor Change In Date :p - 258K
    
     Long time, no see. I've finally had some free time to work on finishing up
     this guide. The list of adjustments is large but mostly minor clean ups,
     notes, credits, hints, and various other small bits and pieces.
    
     Finally, big appologies to all those who e-mailed me during the past five and
     a bit months on Silent Hill 3 (or hell, anything for that matter) and I didn't
     get back to them. Sorry... I just haven't been online much.
    
    
     v e r s i o n  f i v e
     ----------------------
     17th July 2003 - 252K
    
     I've come back to finish up the minor touches and add the endings, secrets,
     ranking, and other minor bits to the end of the guide I mentioned in the past.
     The guide is basically complete apart from some code details which are out of
     my reach. Hopefully this will be helpful for those picking the game up in
     August in the US.
    
     Come on blue dot!
    
     Enjoy. :)
    
    
     v e r s i o n  f o u r
     ----------------------
     29th June 2003 - 227K
    
     The guide is completed, covering all three modes and nearly everything within.
     Some of the information on extra weapons has yet to be completed, but other
     than that the basic walkthrough is complete.
    
     The enemies section have been completed, and I've decided the weapons section
     is better off the way it is - bonus weapons are covered within the guide
     itself. Sections for the ranking, endings, and secrets are still left to do,
     but they're not as urgent right now.

     ------------------------
     26th June 2003 - 182K
    
     Third edition of the guide, more walkthrough is added covering about 3/4ths of
     the game, a couple of other updates here and there, but not much. The
     remaining sections will still need to be completed, but for now the guide
     continues.
    
     Future updates remain to be done.

     --------------------
     21th June 2003 - 128K
    
     Second edition of the guide... this update has been mostly focused on the
     guide to at least get it finished half way through. I'm not sure how much
     this guide is going to help the current crowd, because the focus has moved on
     for the European crowd now the game has been out for nearly a month, but
     hopefully this will be helpful for those in the USA. The updates list remains
     the same for now.
    
     Future Planned Updates:
     - More to the walkthrough obviously.
     - Complete the remaining enemies for the enemies section.
     - Complete the remaining weapons for the weapons section.
     - Sections for the ranking, endings, puzzles, secrets, and others. All on
       their way.

     15th June 2003 - 72K
    
     First edition of the guide. It's still bear bones for the time being when it
     comes to the walkthrough, because it hasn't been the bulk of this first
     edition. Instead I've focused more on the beginning info and just getting
     the start of the guide done. Future updates will focus more on the
     walkthrough and the remainder of the guide will come afterwards.
    
     Future Planned Updates:
     - More to the walkthrough obviously.
     - Complete the remaining enemies for the enemies section.
     - Complete the remaining weapons for the weapons section.
     - Sections for the ranking, endings, puzzles, secrets, and others. All on
       their way.
