Please don't post before I'm finished posting the whole guide. Thanks in advance.

This guide divided up into a couple of sections. The sections/questions that include spoilers are marked. Use the shortcut by pressing CTRL + F and input the question code.

Section 1: Before playing the game (spoiler-free)

[Q101] How scary is this game?
[Q102] Do I have to play the earlier games before Silent Hill 3?
[Q103] How long is this game?
[Q104] What difficulty levels are there?
[Q105] Should I buy or rent this game?
[Q106] Do all copies of the game come with the soundtrack?
[Q107] Where else can I find the soundtrack?
[Q108] So there's an offical music video?
[Q109] Where can I find the "Making Of"?

Section 2: So you've already got the game and you are ready to play it (spoiler-free)

[Q201] Tell me something about the weapons.
[Q202] Tell me something about the supplies.
[Q203] Apart from the weapons are there more permanent items which I should pick up?
[Q204] Is there something else I should know about the combat?
[Q205] No Health and Stamina bars?
[Q206] Is there some way to tell if there's a monster, an item or an accessable door nearby?

Section 3: Playing the game

The answers to these questions might contain a few minor SPOILERS, depending on the current situation. Big spoilers will have an additional spoiler mark.

If you're looking for key items check a guide. There are too many key items in the game, and if I'd be telling you where to find them all I might as well write a complete guide (which I won't).

Anyway, if you are desperately in need of a guide:
