From a Silent Hill fanatic: The only game I've ever quit due to boredom

Summary: I was a big fan of the series, but there has been a sharp decline in story and game quality since the third installment. This was the worst by far, and it pains me to say that since I enjoy the survival horror genre. There is a long list of problems with this game, many of which have already been highlighted by other customers. Clunky combat, poor graphics, bizarre storyline, lame/re-hashed characters plague "Downpour.
Summary: There's only a few silent hill games I felt were generic and stood out of place with the rest of the franchise; silent hill 4 the room and the latest installment silent hill downpour. Downpour seemed rushed, generic and in my opinion the normal difficulty settings(which I played on) was so painlessly easy. Which if you ask me, is a sin in the survival horror genre. It just didn't feel like a well made silent hill game. Now this game isn't an unplayable game.
Summary: As an average gamer I don't think this game is all that great, I played it for about an hour and then got bored. Haven't touched it since. It's one of those games where you should really know what it's gonna be like instead of just hearing all the reviews about it, because, it's actually just kind of boring after a while.
Summary: I was warned before buying this game that is not a good place for a new player to get into Silent Hill and that the game itself wasn't great. Even for the price, I was disappointed. The world is bland and the gameplay disjointed. Look elsewhere if you are interested in the series.
Summary: Bought it for daughter and wasted my money. Game has a flaw that locks up the characters at times. My daughter played it once and was so frustrated she told me to sell it. I'm sure it is playable but with technology as good as it is I am surprised this is normal on this particular game. Should have done my research first.
Summary: This game is awful, I have enjoyed every other silent hill to date (even you know what) but this game is just terrible. The contols are clunky, the enemies are boring and not in the slightest bit scary, the sidequests are pointless and time consuming and the ending is the most stupid nonsensical thing i have ever seen. I could rant for hours on this game but i won't.
Excerpt: This has promise and starts well and i forgave the constant frame rate issues and pushed on. I could not forgive how poor the combat is and given the game is heavly combat oriantated it was a deal breaker. A case of so near yet so far. With so many mixed opinions i suggest give it a go and see if it works for you.
Excerpt: il mio titolo la fa da apri pista a tutto il mio discorso breve e conciso. penso che il mondo dei videogiochi , soprautto riguardante quelli horror , hanno avuto un ascesa davvero soddisfacente nella fine degli anni 90 e agli inizi degli anni 2000. li si ...
Summary: Fan de survival horror et aimant les premiers silent hill, je m'attendais à retrouver la même ambiance. Malheureusement, entre des graphismes et animations très moyennes et un gameplay très vieillissant, ce silent hill ne m'a procuré aucun plaisir de jeu.
Summary: Je suis fan des jeux silent hill j'était donc contente quand celui ci est sorti mais finalement très vite déçu, le jeu n'est vraiment pas aussi bien que les anciens, finie et rangé j'ai voulu le refaire mais il me saoule, donc meme pas fait deux fois, dommage !
