Product Description

Product Description

Staying true to the franchise's original roots, the game returns with another third person horror experience, and an all new thought provoking storyline. Players will once again find themselves face to face with their deepest sins and fears in the strange world of Silent Hill.

The survival horror experience begins after a prison transport vehicle careens off the road, leaving lone inmate Murphy Pendleton stranded in Silent Hill. Gamers will encounter mind-bending puzzles, as well as horrific creatures and otherworld terrors using everyday objects from wooden chairs to glass bottles to fend off their enemies. The natural response, fight or flight is left to the player as they unravel a… more dark, thought-provoking storyline which will appeal to fans of the early, classic Silent Hill series, as well as anyone who enjoys a deep, psychological horror experience.

In addition to the main storyline, players will also be presented with variable side quests along the way that can change depending on their play style, revealing unknown evils within the town.

All new and updated Silent Hill experience that visually stands on its own with the current competition. Utilizing Unreal 3 technology, the game brings the town of Silent Hill, its characters, the creatures and the alternate hell world into vivid and spectacular display. Free-roaming and deep exploration that will take players into all-new 'Side Quests' unlocking areas within the game, special items and bonus content.An ever-changing game world including day and night 'Normal' world and 'Otherworld' world, all manifested and sourced from character actions throughout the game. First-time ever 3D technology will bring Silent Hill a step closer to the player with three-dimensional immersion.

Manufacturer's Description

Silent Hill: Downpour marks the series' return to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, and brings a completely original storyline which follows Murphy Pendleton, a convict stranded in the foggy, malevolent world of Silent Hill. Pendleton begins the game lost and alone in the woods on the outskirts of the fabled town, when his prison transport bus crashes...

What happens after this is up to the player, as Silent Hill: Downpour reveals a new, expansive environment that is similarly claustrophobic and where the player is never truly alone.

Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
This is probably best as a rental or loaned as it is a interesting but ultimately disappointing game for fans of the franchise. There are moments in this game that are pure Silent Hill greatness, for example the whole section in the creepy orphanage and the cinema where you can walk into the screen. The characters are excellent with Silent Hill's local postman being a particular highlight who brought a real Twin Peaks feel to the cutscenes he was in (though there were too few of them). Also the radio DJ who keeps playing creepy songs dedicated to your character is a great idea and works well within the Silent Hill universe. The overall plot is really good, though not told in the best possible way.
The problems lie in the basic gameplay mechanics being horribly clunky, basic movement is a struggle when it shouldn't be and the graphics are not up to scratch. Creature design is not up to the series standard and there are only around 5 variants of creatures within the entire game which is far too few. Puzzles are too easy and too few. The game becomes quite repetitive though there are a lot of brilliant side quests well worth doing which offer some variety. Everyone remembers the amazing music in the first game and later ones but Downpour comes nowhere near that high standard.
Overall I like the characters and plot and there is definitely a high level of creepiness caused by some decent sound design such as the squeak of a rusty wheelchair as you turn a corner or the UV lamp that reveals what first appeared as a normal room into a blood stained scene. However for everything that works great in this game there is something else that ruins it. It has some great moments but also some bad ones.

4.0 out of 5 stars Actually pleasantly surprised! Mostly..... 2 Jun. 2012
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Like most people i was put off buying this by the reviews and the lack of retail support (couldn`t find it anywhere!).However i`m glad the Silent Hill fan within me took over and after much searching i purchased my copy and eagerly began playing it.

First impressions of the game were ok.It looks like Silent Hill,it sounds like Silent Hill and some of the voice acting is terrible and wooden,like Silent Hill. (whats.going.on.with.that.radio??) To start with i had none of the famous glitching UNTIL about an hour into the game (it may only be 10 mins for most,i spend AGES looking around). If you like spontanious fog then this is a game for you. Now you see it,now you don`t,now you see it..... Oh and the character started taking leaps and bounds in a jittery way rather than walking in the normal one-foot-infront-of-the-other form that humans have adapted.But then this is Silent Hill afterall.......

But hey ho! i was not bothered too much by this latest development and continued to enjoy the many areas and puzzles of the game. Some of the puzzles are fab and worth playing the game for. They really come alive,you`ll see what i mean. Some are just your run of the mill moving things about or finding keys but its always pleasantly frustrating to find a locked door knowing (hoping) you`ll find a key soon enough.There are lots of buildings big and small to explore,my fave so far being the monastry.There`s nothing better than entering a building,finding a map and thinking "wow,this place is big!".

Is the game scary?I would say yes,some of it. Some days when i`m feeling brave i play for hours,shouting obsenities at the monsters i encounter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pleasantly surprised! 23 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I've loved the Silent Hill series (Especially Silent Hill 2) for well over a decade now, but must admit that the series has gone downhill. I couldn't even finish Homecoming, and didn't bother much with the other titles after Origins.
I almost didn't bother with this one either, but I'm glad I did.

The good parts:
The story is good, and feels like what a Silent Hill story should be.
I think the voice acting overall is pretty good. I especially like Murphy. His detached way of speaking fits well in the story, I think.

Atmosphere is close to perfect, it feels like Silent Hill. I don't usually care much about graphics, but they are lovely. I was worried about the soundtrack since Yamaokas departure from the series, but I felt it was handled well. (My only complaint would be that the constant playing of the old SH songs on the radio felt cheesy and strained)

I liked the fact that the place wasn't swarming with monsters. It's Silent Hill, not Resident Evil, something I felt Homecoming pretended to be at times. It felt creepy, and I was constantly waiting for things to pop up.
The fact that Murphy will scream or yell when suprised added to the tension.

Bad parts:
Although some of the sidequests were lovely, and almost like tiny Silent Hill stories in themselves, the overall feeling I got was that it was out of place. Kind of like a Grand Theft Auto hybrid.

Had some repetetive things, like "The Void", the sliding, etc. "The Void" was genuinly scary the first time, but turned into a hassle by the end, especially in maze-like quarters.

As I mentioned, the old Silent Hill themes on the radio. I cringed every time.

Spoiler:
I don't know what to feel about the bogeyman.
