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.
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...
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.
Summary: I found this game so dull that I stopped playing (something I rarely do). the graphics seem dated. the storyline is interesting but you have to get through the godawful gameplay which isn't worth it. The monsters aren't scary ... just annoying.
Summary: Downpour has an interesting new story and a good new take on the Silent Hill series, however I was unable to finish this game due to its HORRIBLE new combat system. The combat is stiff, clunky and just beyond frustrating, just fighting one enemy is a chore because you hardly do any damage so the...
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...
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.
Summary: Leider kann ich nur sehr wenig posiives zu diesem Spiel sagen. Fangen wir also damit an:(Vorsicht: Spoiler) Optisch und atmosphärisch hat es durchaus schon was von SH1-3, grafisch ist es relativ gut gelungen.Auch die rätsel sind ganz gut geworden.
