Creepy, better controls, but easier than previous Silent Hill titles.
6 April 2012
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.
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.
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.
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...
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.
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.
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.
Summary: I'm a fan of horror games and I love the Silent Hill series. This game is kind of a mixed blessing. I would say it's okay, but don't expect the caliber of horror in the previous games. PROS: The story is enjoyable and fun to watch. Grotesque gore. Definitely not for the kiddies. The musical score is amazing. The graphics and the scenery is amazing. It gave me goosebumps! CONS: TOO easy. Seriously... if you wanted to beat this game, just run. That's all you have to do.
Lacking sparks and scares - a missed opportunity for a PS3 Silent Hill
31 August 2009
Excerpt: Dense fog. A cheap torch that leaves you straining to see through a suffocating blanket of darkness. The freakish monsters, and the static-spitting radios that warn of their presence. The harrowing Otherworld... It's fair to say that few series are as distinctive and striking as Silent Hill, and despite ten years having passed since the original outing on to the PSOne, the series remains an alluring venture, with few survival-horror games proving as visually unique or as...
