Silent Hill Homecoming
Scariest game I've played NO JOKE !
I'm a new to the silent hill franchise and I got this game yesterday and I must say this is the creepiest game theres some levels that are over the top freaky lol aaand I'm loving this game I dont know why IGN and fans for the franchise are saying this is a terriable game which its not the case at all this game is scary and creepy I have a 32 inch 1080p HD tv following along with my turtle beach headset and even the slightiest sound will make you jump no joke. I love this game if your stuck on a puzzle look it up on youtube I'm currently in the hotel level which remindes me alittle bit of Condemned: Bloodshot. any way I'm now a fan to the most recongnized horror game known to the video game world I've already have Downpour looking forward to that aswell.
Let me start by saying I am not somebody to take my time writing a review about a videogame... but this game deserves it. This was the first silent hill I ever played and I am hooked on the whole franchise because of it. The story, to this day, was the best story to a game that Ive ever played (besides fallout 3). It continues to keep you wandering what might happen next, and the unexpected always arrives. Although I liked Silent Hill HD collection more, in my opinion, I think every horror fan should definitely buy this. Very, very good.
Least favorite Silent Hill
You would think this game would be great like the rest, but I was wrong. I love Silent Hill games but this one has very little good and a lot of bad. The good is it is pretty scary, the monsters look cool, the bad is the combat is ridiculous, no auto save points so if you die you gotta go way back to where you last saved, barely any ammo hardly, there is one monster you face that blocks bullets and hits so that becomes very frustrating. Sad to say but this is the least favorite Silent Hill game.
Great for those horror survival gamers.
I very much like the series, this game in particular was good, dificult foes, nice puzzles, diferent endings, hidden weapons, scary places, lots of darkness, melee combat, good plot. I would recomend this game to gamers who take their time and look aroud for ammo, hidden things and get inmerse in game. I played through this one 4 times beginning to end each time with its own rewards: new weapons, new ending, new achievements. I won't recomend it to casual gamers or people with no patience to appreciate a great horror survival game.
much fewer weapons than origins and same graphics sound was not memorable it was very bad.i cant believe i paid 18 bucks for this terd of a game.
Lovely, but not to the first 4's Standards
I love this game. The Combat is much, much better. So are the graphics. However, it's just not as scary as the first four. Yes, this game has his moments that will make you gasp. but it doesn't make you fear to turn to the next corner afraid of what's gonna be on the other side. I give this game an 8 for gameplay, story, and graphics. but when it comes to horror i give it a six. This game is a MUST play for silent hill fans, however. I enjoyed every minute of it.
buy this game!
this was the best one i played there are special weapons and skins you can get once you beat the game that was awesome and if you like playing silent hill you better get this
Scariest game i played!
I picked up this game a couple days ago because i wanted a game that could creep me out yet keep me interested. I'm familiar with the Silent Hill story but Ive only got my hands on silent hill 2 and 3 until now. I will say this game is a perfect addition to the series although not made by the same developer (doesn't really matter) . Silent Hill is just a scary and creepy as ever. There are newer monsters as long as some of the classic monsters; nurses,smogs,creepers, and pyramid head makes a cameo appearance. The game play is smooth and the graphics are great. The environments themselves can creep you out... The game transitions from a normal world to the dark world the same way it does in the Silent Hill movie (paint peels off walls, lights fall). I will say this game is a little difficult. Combat is hard especially against certain creatures along with the fact that you have to find health kits and such which there isn't many of. The story where im at so far has been really good and it makes you want to keep playing until you figure out the next clue or solve the next puzzle. But sometimes it gets so creepy you just wanna stop playing yet you cant.
I recommend this game to any fans of the series or anybody that likes suspense and like to get scared.
don't waste you're money....
I have been a silent hill fan since the first one came out but this installment is by far the worst. What annoys me is that you get at most 2 health drinks or 1 serum(if you can find it)and maybe 2 packs of pistol or shotgun ammo a level.this is extremely frustrating (especially the Scarlet boss) when you have a little more than half health, 5 pistol rounds and no health drinks and this giant lumbering doll comes at you with swing attacks that can be very hard to dodge.Not to mention you have to defeat her TWICE with no health boost. Also dodging is difficult and sometimes very hard to control.The graphics and sound are great but the monsters are way too hard to defeat. It would be nice if you were given more health boosts or ammo but it falls extremely short every level. In short,don't waste you're money on this. This definatly was only a game with good looks and not gameplay.
This game really has a scary atmosphere to it. It is a change in combat and camera view from the previous installments but that doesnt matter to me much. This game is pretty easy to beat, alot of fun, and scary (though the games scariest level in my opinion is the first level). I beat the game three full times, and after doing that, i was about sick of the game and had had enough of it, which is why i didnt make lasting appeal a 10.
