Silent Hill: Downpour Review [PS3/Xbox 360]

 

Someone on Twitter quite rightly pointed out recently that anyone arguing the worth of auteurs in the games industry should compare the fortunes of Metal Gear Solid and Silent Hill. Metal Gear Solid, with Hideo Kojima remaining firmly at the helm of...

With a new developer and a shift towards a more action-oriented approach, it's no wonder that so many met the news of Silent Hill: Downpour with muted indifference. Indeed it's impossible to even call Silent Hill a great series at this point, with the...

Silent Hill: Downpour Review

 

From side quests to sound design, Silent Hill: Downpour isn't afraid of change. The result is a captivating game more expansive than the series has ever seen.

Captures the classic Silent Hill visual style ; Good voice acting ; Side missions reward exploration

Combat still feels stiff ; Underwhelming sound design ; Persistent frame rate issues

In the other world, you do a lot of running. Early on, you are introduced to a glowing ball of energy that wants to chase Murphy down and change him from a solid form into a liquid. Murphy's escape takes him through a maze of hallways lined with...

Silent Hill: Downpour Hands-On Preview

 

Murphy tugs at the knob; the door opens. On the other side, a stained, dirty hallway offers two paths: one dark, the other light, but dripping with rainwater from the long storm outside. The walls creak and ooze water, now collecting in shallow puddles...

Silent Hill tells a new tale.

Silent Hill fans should enjoy Downpour. While it’s far from being the best game in the series, it opens up a new story with a fantastic atmosphere that delivers a few scares and some tricky puzzles. Unfortunately, poor combat and technical issues undo...

Silent Hill Downpour

 

Cav loses himself in Silent Hill Downpour. Can it live up to his expectations and remain one of his most loved series?

Still has that edge-of-your-seat atmosphere ; Great variety of weapons— fry pan beatings ; Many side quests to complete ; Huge map ; 3D gameplay

Some puzzles are too bizarre ; Game 'shudder'/lag ; No mini-bosses

Silent Hill feel? Yes. Silent Hill controls? Yes. Silent Hill challenges? Yes. So with that said, is it the best in the series? Maybe not, as there are too many rough edges in the game. I love the thrill that Silent Hill Downpour delivers, but that...

It's been a while since a Silent Hill title has lived up to expectations. Now it's Vatra Games turn to try with Silent Hill: Downpour. It does a great job as well, although not quite enough overall.

Silent Hill: Downpour PS3, Xbox 360 Review

 

Vatra Games are the third western development team to be tasked with creating a Silent Hill game. Since Team Silent were disbanded in 2005, development has fallen to the likes of Double Helix Games (Silent Hill: Homecoming) and Climax (Silent Hill:...

In a genre that is sadly close to extinction, and with its puzzles and tense combat, Silent Hill: Downpour remains true to its survival horror roots. This is definitely a series that has become memorable for its chilling atmosphere and intriguing...

Silent Hill: Downpour PS3 Review

 

Stepping in to take the reigns on a new installment of an incredibly popular gaming series must be incredibly scary for a development team. Even scarier when you consider that this series has some of the most obsessive, loud and passionate fans I've...

Good solid storyline ; Side quests are a good addition ; The soundtrack is nicely done ; Lots of WTF moments

Horrendous framerate issues ; Not overly scary
