Product Description

Murphy Pendleton has been incarcerated for several years, having had his sentence extended once already. Due to his history at Ryall State Prison, he is being transferred to nearby Wayside Maximum Security Penitentiary—but a freak accident cuts the journey short. Waking up in a forest next to the wrecked bus, Murphy has a clear shot at freedom. He makes his way into the sleepy town of Silent Hill where mysterious locals welcome him into a slowly developing personal hell. Silent Hill Downpour is the latest Silent Hill game offering the familiar Survival Horror gameplay delivered in the most defined visual quality to date. The game also expands on the exploration theme of the franchise both design-wise and through psychological torture, ambient story, horrific enemies and self-evaluative questions of despair.

A Modern Silent Hill Experience
rated 4.0 out of 5

I have to admit I started to worry about this game shortly before its release. After years of titles in the series that... well, weren't up to the standards set by the originals, I was worried that this game would have many of the same problems. Thankfully, I can say my doubts were gone within a few hours of this game. This game uses some of the characteristics used in the old SH classics, but adds a more modern touch to gameplay. The creepy atmosphere is still there, but there's less emphasis on fog and instead uses rain. Many fans were upset about this change, but I think it worked very well. The game is still scary and has some very creepy enviroments. The monsters, however, are less than impressive. They look TOO human, unlike the distorted and horrifying monsters from the older games. The gameplay is a definite improvement over Homecoming, but it is still far from perfect. Sometimes is just seems like Murphy is swinging his weapon around like an idiot, flying in whatever direction he wants. But it's better than most of the series. Unlike Homecoming, you won't have to focus as much of fighting anyway, much like the older titles. So this isn't that big a deal. The characters themselves are great. Murphy is a great protagonist. He's likeable, believable, and even a bit relatable. The supporting characters are great too. My only complaint here is that there are a couple of characters that lack explanation. Who are they? Where did they come from? How are they here? Do they even exist? We can't be sure. Overall, Downpour is a good game with a nice story and scary atmosphere that really brings back some fond memories of the classic games. It's not AS good as the oldies, but it's certainly the best I've seen in a while.

This is a great buy for fans of the franchise. You'll have to run a little bit in this one, making this a true survival horror game. Outside of the camera situation, the only thing that needed improvement were the variety of enemies you face. All in all though, this one is worth your money.

I have been waiting 2 years for this game and it's finally here! The town of Silent Hill has evolved in this game and become more elaborate and beautiful then ever before. The game features tiny details to disorient you, causing the game to be even scarier than many of the past games in the series. The game stays true to the brilliant franchise and really does a good job of bringing you back to the horrifying town. Silent Hill Downpour (Silent Hill 8) is simply beautiful. My only complaint is a glitch in the graphics, causing things to look very sketchy and pixelated once in a while (especially during cut scenes) The game however is still worth buying!

So far this is the best Silent Hill since The Room (my opinion). My only complaints are the glitchy frame rate, the combat mechanics (if a monster is too close when you go to swing a weapon, it'll stick in the middle of the swing) and a couple of other minor bugs (sometimes when you drop a weapon, it'll disappear in the environment and my second play thru, there was almost No demons even in the worst of the storm except for the scripted sequences). None of these issues cripple the game but if they were fixed, I'd give Downpour at least a 9.6 for the great story, environments, atmosphere and the new otherworld design which pulled an element from Silent Hill 3 that I'd been waiting to see return. Daniel Licht's work on the soundtrack is pretty nice but not as unique as Akira's. I'm really curious to see where Akira would've taken the sound design for Downpour since it's more atmosphere-focused than previous SH titles

As stated, I am a long-time fan of Silent Hill, and I cannot express the rage I felt over Origins and Home Coming. Both of those were TERRIBLE games with no right to be included in the Silent Hill series (Home Coming more so than Origins, but I digress...) Is this game a clone of games 1-3? No. Butit does have the feel of a Silent Hill game. The focus was (finally) taken off the action and put back onto the characters, which is something I feel games 1-3 emphasized greatly and has always been central to the franchise. There's also a lot more analysis needed to understand what's going on in this game as it hints at playing on two people's psyches, so it's very open-ended, as far as environment and creatures go. I also found the optional quests and references to the old games very enjoyable. Downpour is different, but that doesn't make it bad. As Silent Hill ages, it has to evolve with it's audience and Downpour does that effectively; it keeps the basics but gave the town the updating it needed. That being said; the lag in this game can get pretty bad at some points (For me personally it never became much more than a minor annoyance, but a friend was killed or had to reload several times due to a glitch), and the creatures, while interesting, were repetitive. There were only 5 kinds of enemies minus the penultimate boss. So graphics and repetitive enemies are where this game loses points. If you can't stand the glitches, get bored looking at same enemy types over and over, and want a replay of one of the original games, don't play it. But if you can get past those points, it's a very enjoyable game that does a good job at reviving Silent Hill.
