Silent Hill: Origins (PSP)

 

When you think of Silent Hill, what jumps to mind? A foggy town? Cryptic dialogue? Walls dripping with blood? Well, the good news is that Silent Hill Origins has all those things. That alone should please series fans who are looking to developer...

It's funny that so many things are forcibly explained.? Characters and places are constantly being given foundations that enhance, or detract, from their personalities.? The Joker was given a back story in Alan Moore's The Killing Joke, and while he...

Silent Hill Origins is an average game that is a below average addition to the series.

A great port of the PSP horror title.

A strange twist to the series is the way you explore your world and the world of Silent Hill. Instead of being forced into unpleasant situations and into the dark, you actually get to move from each parallel universe by the use of mirrors. It's...

One of the most coveted survival horror game series has finally made its way to the PlayStation Portable (PSP). Silent Hill: Origins serves as a prequel to the eight-year-old franchise, with a storyline set before the events of the original Silent Hill...

Travis Grady is an introverted truck driver who doesn't care that he can't remember his past. While taking a detour past the town of Silent Hill, he swerves to avoid a child in the road, but then she vanishes. Close by, a house burns with a voice...

It's gruesome and disturbing, and that's exactly why we like it.

Unfortunate camera and combat issues aside, Silent Hill Origins is a worthy addition to the series and should scare the socks off even the most jaded survival horror devotee. The visuals are well done, the audio is a dream (play it with your headphones...

"flying from Myrtle Beach to San Francisco." Myrtle beach is awesome. And i agree, how the heck ca n you play this thing!?!? i played Silent hill 4, and i hated the controls, alot. But meh, if it gets to 12 dollars, ima buy it, lol. Post a Comment

Despite its attractive veneer, SH:O is short, cumbersome, and fails to strongly engage the player. Dated, but not bad, "blah" describes it well.

While not that original, Origins should satisfy survival horror fans.

In the end, Origins is not that different from its predecessors, but given its portable nature, it's great that this version was able to remain so faithful without having to cut any corners. The controls are not ideal, but we can say that for any...

Silent Hill Origins Sony PSP Review

 

Intense atmosphere; gorgeous visuals

Melee Weapons break too frequently, combat is still stiff

Horror games have come a long way since the days of Alone in the Dark. They've stumbled here and there, but on consoles they've thrived into a widely successful sub-genre spawning tons of copycats and innovaters. On handhelds, horror games have never...

Konami takes Silent Hill fans back to the beginning, telling the tale of the town's dark legacy.

Great addition to the Silent Hill franchise; presentation is as creepy and disturbing as ever

Grady's combat skills feel overpowered; camera issues plague certain areas
