Konami's Survival Horror Franchise Provides More Bad Scares

Game Informer
22 September 2009
  • Conclusion: Concept: Konami's soul- crushing survival horror title returns with some fresh ideas, but they fail in important ways Graphics: The game is way too dark, and we're not talking theme.

  • Summary: With Homecoming, Konami tried to shake things up by hiring Western developer Double Helix to take the series in a different direction. While there are a few welcome changes, too many outdated Silent Hill conventions have remained onboard.

  • 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.

Silent Hill: Homecoming (PS3)

  • Excerpt: Silent Hill: Homecoming is a strange game. Not because of the gross-out enemy designs or the peculiar environments and characters you’ll meet, or the oppressive fog that invites you to explore and simultaneously warns you to not take a single step further.

The Review Busters
1 January 2009
  • Conclusion: I have played all of the Silent Hill games and I have to say that Homecoming is not a step forward for the franchise on next generation consoles. This game takes everything that was good about Silent Hill and erased it.

  • Summary: You’d think someone would nuke Silent Hill off the face of the planet by now. If ever there was a domestic target desperately in need of the glass parking lot solution, Silent Hill would be it.

Review: Silent Hill Homecoming (Playstation 3)

11 November 2008
  • Conclusion: The game will not give you chills throughout like the previous titles in the series because you find yourself knowing what is coming, when it is coming, and will be adequately ready before you obliterate it in seconds.
