Playstation Illustrated
19 November 2008
  • Excerpt: Silent Hill Origins may already sound familiar because it came out a number of months back on the PSP. Sadly, the PS2 version looks like a direct port from the PSP and that doesn't say much for the graphics.

  • Summary: doesn’t do anything new. It’s the same formula gamers have been either loving or hating for years, so any recommendation depends on which side of the fence you happen to sit on. This is undoubtedly , as both the enduring strengths and glaring weaknesses are on display.
