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

Break it Down
1 March 2009
  • Excerpt: Summary [8.0 out of 10] Silent Hill: Homecoming is a perfect fit in the existing Silent Hill lineage. Fans of the series will look past some slightly weak graphics and directly at the surreal dream-like settings the series is so good at like the Silent Hill sound track, well-executed characters and getting a great story and horror experience out of it.

Silent Hill: Homecoming

Video Game Generation
9 January 2009
  • Summary: At this point Konami seems firmly committed to a more action-oriented Silent Hill , and while some long-time fans of the series may not like it Homecoming is a solid step forward in that direction for the franchise. While not incredibly shocking the storyline is still engaging, and the game has the same creepy atmosphere fans of the series crave.
  • Pros: Good improvements to combat, and it’s much more strategic with dodging playing an important role., Moody and atmospheric soundtrack from Akira Yamaoka and good overall voice acting., Five different endings, disturbed child’s drawings and photos to collect, and several alternate costumes to unlock give the game surprising replay value for a survival horror title (especially for Achievement hunters).
  • Cons: Unnecessarily convoluted environmental navigation., Some blurry textures and minor slowdown in areas., The storyline, while good, is fairly predictable.

The Horror, The Horror

  • Excerpt: 2004. 2000-and-effin'-4! When Silent Hill: The Room came out in 2004, people mumbled, grumbled, and criticized. This "addition" to the series hadn't even started its life as a SH title. They modified it at the last second to blah, blah, blah" And yet, I'm here to tell you, as far as SH games go, after being worked over by Team Silent, Room blew Homecoming into the stratosphere, vaporized it with its heat vision, and then ground its ashes into the dirt with its ratty...

Silent Hill Homecoming Review

ps3evolved.net
8 October 2008
  • Excerpt: Welcome home! Silent Hill is back with a vengeance in the newest installment of the franchise, Silent Hill Homecoming. There was always something a little different about Silent Hill compared to other survival horror games. The atmosphere, the psychological tension and the constant fear all contributed to the absolute horror of these great games. Now with new American developer, Double Helix, let me be the first to tell you, it’s all here.
  • Pros: very atmospheric, iconicly strange and unsettling story.  spot on combat  great graphics. wonderful sounds and music.  decent replay value.
  • Cons: a little on the short side.  camera controls are somewhat sluggish. save points really need to be closer together. way too dark in some areas.
