Product Description

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.

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

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Silent Hill For Quite Some Time 2 April 2012
By ABeeps
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Downpour is sort of a return to form for the Silent Hill Series and a very welcome one.
It takes and modernizes the formula of the first two Silent Hill titles in which the whole town is yours to explore.

The main story is fantastic, it's an original story that does not involve any of that memory loss nonsense that had become an overused cliche in the Newer Silent Hill titles. You play as Murphy Pendleton. A prisoner who is being transferred to another prison. There is a disruption on the bus which causes it to crash and Murphy winds up in Silent Hill where he will have to face his Demons (Literally!) in order to get out of town.
I'd go into the story more but it would be spoilers a plenty. Let's just say that he had his reasons for getting arrested in the first place and leave it at that because I really think this is the kind of game you need to go into without knowing the details.
In typical Silent Hill fashion, you'll encounter other people within the town and also in the traditional Silent Hill fashion these characters will be vital to the story but at the same time will not be there very often, you're generally left to your own devices.

A nice new Feature of the game is side-quests, and there are plenty of those scattered all over town. Combined, these take up more time than the main storyline itself but are essential if you want to get the full story on both Murphy and the town itself. You'll also notice nice little nods to previous games in the series, such as music from the original four games playing on the radio and on jukeboxes, photos and paintings of established Silent Hill locations and characters, memos that will seem very familiar and puzzles that pay tribute to the games in the right way.

3.0 out of 5 stars The quiet town of Silent Hill once again awaits 26 Oct 2013
By J. Mitchell VINE VOICE
Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Silent Hill Downpour, marks the eighth title of the fabled survival horror series. So far, in the current generation it seems as though horror has been sacrificed in favour of action. Which has been seen in other popular survival horror games. Silent Hill, even in the last generation was more disturbing or featured more precarious moments. Is Silent Hill Downpour a return to its roots? Or just another pale comparison to tales of old?

The game sets you as the game's protagonist, Murphy Pendleton, who finds himself as a prisoner. Throughout the game you will find out why and this ties back to a central theme of Silent Hill itself. That is, that there is a reason certain people are drawn to the sleepy town, where all is not quite right. The story is one of the highlights and the Czech developer, Vatra, (sadly no longer operating), along with Konami did a sterling job in this respect. Silent Hill titles, or at least the games I have played have always had good stories. The voice acting is also improved and in the Silent Hill vein, at certain stages you will be given a choice although it is not on a Mass Effect level.

Moving on to the combat, I feel this is one of the letdowns of the game. The combat of old in Silent Hill 2 and 3 worked, because the enemies were sometimes simple to dispose of by "button mashing." Now, because the enemies are more sophisticated, this is no longer possible. Furthermore, enemies in groups are especially dangerous and it's not helped by a awkward camera. The weapons that you come across are rather disappointingly geared towards what you can find, which could be a crowbar, pipe, axe or even a piece of wood. This leads to the player having to rely on close quarter combat and not being given the option to a great extent of using ranged weapons.

5.0 out of 5 stars unbelievable 5 April 2012
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
my favourite Silent Hill game to date.
I have every Silent Hill game and I'm a fan of each and every one of them, because none of them are the same, they constantly try new things and give out new storylines in such a unique way.
people seem to be saying this one isn't that great, because its not as good as silent hill 2, which i finished recently for the millionth time, due to the prehistoric controls and the fact i know what's lurking around every corner and the truth behind every aspect of the game I've lost appreciation for it.
and that's where Downpour is so good. it's new, it has new controls and new features and it's the perfect blend of storytelling and survival horror. the combat is horrific, and the enemies are very rare to come across. with other silent hill games you get used to enemy's movements and how to kill them, they might as well not be there, but in this game the enemies are smart and frantic to a ridiculous degree, you throw your weapon around skill-lessly and just pray it's gonna hit the enemy before they hit you. every second from them appearing to your final blow, is more tense than.. the ending of american psycho.
as for the story, I have no idea what's going on but I want to find out, I sympathise with Murphy and I want him to be happy. that's why i keep turning the xbox on and pushing through the fear to find out why this seemingly nice, ordinary man, was hated by EVERYONE in prison, and why he's in Silent Hill?!? i still haven't finished the game because the suspense is killing me and I love every minute of it!

if you're considering buying this game, do! just sit in the room with your curtains shut, lights off, turn the brightness alll the way down and really get into it, I've even stopped playing Skyrim for it!

3.0 out of 5 stars Still bringing the scares despite some technical shonk.
There were some cool ideas here, and I liked the story. The (apparent) low budget held back the atmosphere here and there (the frame rate in particular was really bad in places)... Read more
