Silent Hill: Downpour

Playstation Illustrated
19 June 2012
  • Excerpt: Silent Hill: Downpour is once again a grotesquely beautiful journey to the world of Silent Hill. Dilapidated buildings are boarded over, trash is strewn here and there. Everything is dirty, grimy, abandoned, and yet there are still a few townspeople that seem oblivious.

  • Excerpt: Vatra Games are the third western development team to be tasked with creating a Silent Hill game.

  • Conclusion: Frame rate issues in Silent Hill can be maddening. While running around, the game can lag for a few seconds, severely affecting your gameplay. They are random, very noticeable and cannot be avoided. But of course the real question is: is Silent Hill scary?

Silent Hill Downpour

29 March 2012
  • Conclusion: Downpour could have been good, but any shot at greatness gets bogged down by a laundry list of problems. A shame, because there are times when the games gets tense and unnerving, a big plus for this genre.
