Yakuza 3 Review

GamerNode
19 March 2010
  • Excerpt: Sega’s mishandling of the Yakuza franchise in the U.S. is stuff of near-mythical proportions. When the first game debuted on the PS2, Sega hired top tier actors to provide the voices of the characters and marketed the game as a rival to Grand Theft Auto . They made illusions to featuring a wide open world, full of missions and events, and painted a world where you would be navigating the Japanese underworld, trying to climb to the top of the ranks.

Silent Hill: Homecoming

  • Conclusion: Silent Hill: Homecoming is not a horrible game, and it certainly has moments that capture that Silent Hill magic. But while the artists have done a respectable job, the game designers have mostly missed the point, reducing what should have been a mentally stimulating adventure into a shallow, linear monster masher with a few sliding block puzzles.

Silent Hill: Homecoming Review

  • Excerpt: "The fear of blood tends to create fear for the flesh." That was the rather creepy intro message that greeted players of the original Silent Hill, way back in 1999. While the meaning of this statement is debatable, I always took it to mean that the sight of blood will make a person fear for their own safety. Silent Hill was just a game, but that didn't stop its freaky imagery from making me feel vulnerable and threatened. This idea is as true today as it has ever been.

Test Silent Hill Homecoming

  • Conclusion: Silent Hill Homecoming risque de décevoir encore une fois les amateurs de la première heure. De plus en plus, les développeurs reprennent des points de Resident Evil et l'incorporent à leur titre, lui faisant perdre de ce fait son caractère original. Déçu aussi, puisque le déroulement de l'aventure ne connait pas vraiment de moment épique. Les niveaux, les changements de monde, se succèdent sans vraiment de saveur, nous obligeant à explorer continuellement les lieux.
  • Pros: Prise en main de la caméra, Commandes accessibles, Respect de l'ambiance originelle, Bestiaire des ennemis
  • Cons: Graphismes, Facilité des énigmes, Manque de challenge parfois, Trop souvent plan-plan

Silent Hill: Homecoming

Just RPG
4 April 2009
  • Excerpt: Silent Hill: Homecoming continues the horrific series and doesn’t disappoint. You are Alex Shepherd, coming back from the army to visit your hometown, but things don’t seem right. A trucker brings you back, and while the night passes you begin to dream - a dream that is more of a nightmare. You're strapped to a gurney being pushed to a room, and at the same time seeing what is happening to others. The doctor stops and leaves you in a room that you must escape.

  • Summary: Silent Hill Homecoming is a great entry in the survival horror series... except on the PC.
  • Pros: Fun combat system; fantastic graphics; lighting and shadows are top notch; boss battles are great; interesting story; real-time damage to enemies.
  • Cons: Combat still gets dull; borrows too heavily from the movie; keyboard and mouse controls aren't very responsive; PC version is riddled with glitches to the point of being unplayable.
