Not the best

  • Summary: This game could have been a lot better. Not my favorite game but it helps kill some time and was easy.

Creepy, better controls, but easier than previous Silent Hill titles.

  • Summary: Overall good game, but compared to previous episodes it is different in a way some may probably won't like. More action oriented, MUCH easier puzzles, almost no exploration (you don't explore much the buildings because the objectives are clearly defined and marked on map, at all time.) There's not the feel of the classic silent hills, but the story is still good (but unoriginal) and the environement are as creepy as ever.

not impressed!

  • Summary: As a horror game lover and particularly a lover of the Silent Hill franchise, I was not impressed with the game. The story was just ok, the graphics were lacking and the controls were awful. It kept my attention enough to complete it and it had some eerie moments, however, was not what I have come to expect from a Silent Hill game. I enjoyed #3 on PS2 much better. I will rate it a 3 because I like this type of game but I cant honestly recommend it.

The Silent Hill which you didn't see.

  • Summary: Hello dear fans or just players of Silent Hill series. I'm doing this review because I have played in every game of Silent Hill universe and I was very curious about this one. Silent Hill Homecoming. I thought this game will be better than previous chapters but it didn't do so. I have played through aproximately half of the game and I learned that it hasn't got neither the charming story nor intelligent riddles.

my thoughts on homecoming

blujiw74, Ebay
10 January 2011
  • Summary: While silent hill homecoming may not be the best silent hill title it still has good qualitys.I have to deduct points for its annoying fighting system you may find out what I mean once you play but the dodge system always seemed broken to me with this game andmore points deducted for the fact (and only true silent hill fans would get what I mean when I say these next things) that it strayed from the original feel of silent hill (shame on you double helix)and was to...

yawn

A. Griffiths "Adrian", Amazon
28 September 2009
  • Summary: This is not a good Silent Hill game...I would say it's the least impressive of all the major releases to date. It's a very small-time venture, and only holds about two-thirds of the amount of gameplay that I would wish for in a game from this series. Lets start with the plot...A man named Alex comes home to the sleepy town of Shepherd's Glen only to find fog everywhere and the town eerily deserted and locked up tight.

Silent Hill Fanatic Says: Hmmm...

Review Lover "ReviewLover", Amazon

  • Summary: To assume that the United States cannot do Horror as well as the Japanese is both inaccurate and snobbish: Stephen King, Wes Craven, "The Shining", "It", "The Exorcist", Stanley Kubrick, "The Others" and "The Sixth Sense" - Masters and Masterworks of the Genre, all straight out of the good old US of A.

Silent Hill Homecoming

cmor724, Ebay
6 December 2008
  • Summary: Ok, Definitely not the best game in the series. Graphically yes, everything else no. If you ask me from what Ive played of it before I got frustrated and quit, Its almost a direct ripoff of the movie for how time changes and bringing back the pyramid head demon. This was in the movie and already in a previous game. Each game got a little better and reinvented itself until this one. This time around they used all old ideas and tryed to reinvent the gameplay.

Now its just getting old.

Matthew, Amazon
27 October 2012
  • Summary: Sadly, silent hill seems to no longer know what to do with itself. After playing a few games from this series i find that its the same old stuff over again, and i'm quite dissapointed that the first chapter for the PS3 couldn't have tried a little bit harder to bring in something different. Graphics are better of course, a step up from the PS2, but there is this unshakeable feelin of sameness that drags everything down.

Surprisingly combat based

Jay Morrison, Amazon
28 July 2009
  • Summary: I agree with the other review. I've played all the Silent Hill games so far and this one is most like Silent Hill 3, very combat based. The storyline is good and graphics are top notch. I was expecting a puzzle based horror game but essentially the game is about learning the attack patterns of your enemies and how to dodge and strike. I found it really frustrating as I'm not good at those types of games and I never ended up finishing it.
