Summary: This game by all means isn't horrible, but really Double Helix could have done better. The story seemed intriguing, but was pulled off in the worst manners (i.e.,the little homage to "Hostel" near the end of the game, etc...
Double Helix destroyed it, but it's still playable

Summary: The new Silent Hill brings many changes, some good but most bad, to the series. I first want to say that the new development company has done a horrible job at keeping up with Team Silent (previous developer).
Summary: The game itself plays like any other SH but it's "just not the same." I understand there was a change in the development team and it shows. The way you were attached to the story in SH2 won't be here; this plays more like Resident Evil which might not be all bad but for SH fans it's not looking good...
Summary: I certainly put this game as ResidentEvil-like game. I was disappointed because SilentHill Home comming loses the actual intent of SilentHill series. This one just shows a VIDEO GAME!!; I cannnot explain exactly what, but I'm sure the game does not have the original scareness and entertainment.
Summary: The Silent Hill series has been around for years, and despite being a fan of supernatural/horror games, I never got around to picking it up, after hearing that it was more focused on the psychological horror aspect, rather then normal, "I'm going to tear your face off" horror aspect.
Summary: If you scour the internet, you'll find posts by me saying that I was actually kind of scared to see Silent Hill on PS3. Two and three were horrifying and they were just PS2, imagine what they could do to my mind with that kind of hardware.
Summary: Since the release of 'Silent Hill' 1 on the Playstation, I have been a collector and an avid fan of the 'Silent Hill' series. 'Silent Hill' always provided a distinct flavour to other survival horror/role playing games. I have always favoured SH to any 'Resident Evil' installment.
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..
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.
