Summary: " Silent Hill Downpour " is a real mixed bag of a game as it has many good points but nothing that will live long in the memory. Without question the game will provide several hours of enjoyment but on the flip side also several hours of frustration and for these reasons alone I would say that there are better ways to spend your hard earned cash unless you are a fan of the franchise then you will probably enjoy the experience.
Summary: I am afraid SILENT HILL DOWNPOUR doesn`t blow my skirt up a great deal, which is a pity, because it has so much potential and good ideas, but they have been wasted on erratic controls and lack of atmosphere, this game could have been so much more and yet it let its self-down.
Conclusion: I give the storyline score an 8.5/10 Summary: Good -Interesting story and characters. -Beautiful atmosphere. -Exploring Bad -Bad sound effects. -Poor combat. -Last gen graphics. Overall I think the has room for improvement but it's on its way to becoming what it once was.
Conclusion: Silent Hill: Downpour is a solid game with a typically twisted story underneath all of the pretence. Still the gameplay mechanics are starting to show their age and there is a lack of genuine shocks and intrigue, it feels like familiar ground, albeit fairly well made familiar ground. This is certainly an upturn for the series but it hasn’t yet gotten back to the giddy heights of its predecessors.
Pros: Moments of brilliant manipulation of the game world, and the player, Process of revelation of Murphy's past and psyche
Cons: Exploration isn't especially deep, The game offers explanations more quickly than during the franchise's golden age
Conclusion: The Creeps come back to the town, the latest entry Silent Hill: Downpour in Konami’s classic survival horror series, better visuals, obvious locale’s design and creepy effects simply are not enough to cover up flawed game engine and terribly designed clunky combat, Developers have diverted the classic series story to a whole new path but it didn’t turned out to be the best road for the journey.
Excerpt: It’s been years since the last truly great Silent Hill game came out, but that doesn’t stop them from coming out, nor does it stop the forever optimistic faithful from hoping against hope for a return to form for the series.
