Summary: I am a huge silent hill fan. I have played nearly every game in the series (1-downpour, missing Homecoming) and this game was a major disappointment. Right up there with Shattered memories. The only reason it is slightly higher than Shattered Memories in my book is because you can actually fight enemies. This game had major lag and even froze up on me more than once. I beat the game in just a few hours and was shocked to find how little was actually in it.
Summary: I can't review this game as a gamer who has completed it simply because it is unplayable to anyone expecting quality. This game is glitchy, choppy, out of sync and a complete let down to hardcore SH fans and prospective fans of the series. I almost want to ring the developers and demand my money back. Also, before anyone asks if it's my copy, it isn't. I have tried 8 different copies in a desperate bid to play this game and to no avail.
Summary: broken this is the 3rd silent hill game made since the western development team have taken over the silent hill franchise and im not a hater of a western team working on the franchise i rather enjoyed silent hill shattered memory's in fact that is the only one i can say isnt broken in some way also didn't mind origins climax seam to be the team to go to for a western silent hill game homecoming not a bad game but a little generic and plagued with freezes and slow down...
Summary: Considering Konami managed to fix the glitches inherent in the US release of the Silent Hill HD Collection for the UK/EU version why couldn't they have applied the same QA to Downpour? This game suffers from dire frame rate issues and worst of all hard resets of the PS3 are required after constant freezing. My PS3 survived Skyrim in all it's bug ridden glory but have had to reset it 5 times in the last hour or so for Downpour.
Summary: Growing up rocking out silent hill and resident evil on the original playstation are some fond memories for me. I haven't been into gaming much since, but after immersing myself in Skyrim and completing 100% I needed something to fill the void. At that time all of my experiences with the Silent Hill title had been more than favourable so I figured buying the latest Silent Hill for the latest playstation was sure not to disappoint. Wow! Was I ever wrong.
Summary: Nach dem eher enttäuschenden Silent Hill Homecoming und dem katastrophalen Shattered Memories war ich dementsprechend kritisch gegenüber Silent Hill Downpour eingestellt. Als Fan des urspünglichen Silent Hills (Teil 1-4) hatte ich dennoch Hoffnung, dass die Serie vielleicht doch wieder zu ihrer alten Stärke zurückfindet und wurde diesbezüglich aber leider enttäuscht: Zunächst einmal fällt die, wie bereits in anderen Rezensionen erwähnte eher mäßige technische Umsetzung...
Summary: On tient peut-être là le pire Silent Hill de la série. On s'ennuie, on n'a pas peur, et lorsqu'on est aux prises avec les créatures c'est davantage la pitié et l'agacement qui nous dominent, à cause la jouabilité brouillon et de l'aspect nullissime des monstres. Où sont passés les bâtiments obscurs et angoissants? Où sont les phénomènes étranges comme le passage dans la tour de l'horloge du 1er Silent Hill?
