Fun and satisfying game, but frustrating at times

Tan Gent, Amazon

  • Summary: Nice addition to the Silent Hill franchise. It is spooky and scary at times, but it relies mostly on cheap parlor tricks for horror. The monsters aren't that scary, there are only 4 types of them, and they are pretty easy to beat once you get the timing of their attack down.

  • Summary: If I may, I'd like to begin with a quote from a fellow Amazon reviewer for this title: Joman1000: "Despite that (Silent Hill 1) disturbed me beyond words and gave me recurrent nightmares, I felt compelled to keep coming back for more just because it was such an inexplicable, bizarre, unique,...

Ignore the haters

  • Summary: Have you ever noticed that every time a franchise attempts to move in a new direction, masses of fans start their agonized complaining? I love Silent Hill.

Great 3D game!

  • Summary: I really don't know why people haven't mentioned this yet but Silent Hill Downpour can be played in 3D and it's FANTASTIC in 3D. Seriously, not a lot of games are great in 3D but this one just works. Maybe I'm overselling it a tiny bit, but imo it adds about 20% more fun to the game.

a completely different type of silent hill.

  • Summary: First. I gotta say that I am not a die hard "fanboy" of the series. The first SH game I played was Homecoming which I enjoyed and I didn't understand what all the negative reviews were about. Anyway.

Good Game Overall

  • Summary: First let me say I'm a true fan of the Silent Hill series, and after seeing the 20$ price for Downpour, I decided to buy it. And after playing it, I found myself enjoying Downpour very much, I'm not to sure why this title got so many negative reviews.

A flawed gem, but a gem nonetheless - BUY THIS NOW!

  • Summary: If you read reviews before buying games you've seen 3 negative things said about this game: 1)Frame rate issues abound. 2)Monster designs are really bad, boring and not up to the series' standards. 3)Akira Yamaoka, the composer and producer of the series is no longer part of it.

A much needed return to form!

Rik, Amazon
13 April 2012
  • Summary: Despite some of the mixed reviews this game has gotten, after finishing it I truly believe that Downpour does the Silent Hill franchise justice. It has all the elements that the 1st three classics were known for (exploration, good storyline, simple but not frustrating puzzles).

  • Summary: Nice to see a better silent hill title hit the shelves. However it has some framerate issues and glitches that need addressing. Hopefully these come in a patch soon.
