New Silent Hill V Screenshots.
The Silent Hill series have been going downhill, but I hope this one delivers.
SH3 was great! cant say the same abouth the other two, buth this pics look great
I just want it to be as good as Silent Hill 2 thats it SH2 was and still the best horror game i played its story, game play and monters were great
@TO87 Lies. Silent Hill 3 was the best one. The story in SH2 was better, but the overall lack of guns and non-scary gameplay sucked. @bloodshedder good god man who is that on your avatar, I'd hit that all night long!!! Whoo!!!!
I kinda agree , but i liked SH2 more cause of the story :)
Silent Hill isn't about guns. These people aren't (except for 5) trained to use firearms, and in real life you don't just find guns lying around all over the place. Granted, neither do you find mannequin monsters, but that's besides the point. Part of what makes SH so creepy is the fact that you are stuck with melee weapons sometimes, and you do have to get up close and personal with the baddies.
All 4 of the Silent Hills were great. 4 was killed because of the repetition of the last levels. 5 will not be anything like silent hill because the creators of the games aren't doing this one. I am the biggest silent hill fan ever so I'm still buying it, but I'll assure you it will suck.
In addition to that comment I'll add: I'm still really excited for the game :)
I dont think SH5 will suck but i also think that its not gona be the best SH game cause konami is playing safe imo
and i'm disappointed the original team isn't working on the game, but i'm a Silent Hill whore, so i'm getting this game anyway. as for the series "going downhill," i don't think that's entirely true. naturally, Silent Hill one was great. Silent Hill 2 was also great, but it wasn't until about the third time i played through the game that truly realized it's greatness. i loved Silent Hill 3 also. i thought it was scary, it had great atmosphere. the story wasn't as cerebral, but it was horrifying nonetheless. my fiance also liked it, because it's the first Silent Hill with a female protagonist. Silent Hill 4 wasn't supposed to be a Silent Hill game, so it's hard for me to accept it as canon, but taken as a survival horror game, it's pretty damn scary. honestly, the only thing that hurts SH4 is the fact that the enemies are invulnerable. that's lame. if that wasn't the case, it wouldn't be so hated. well, that, and you don't actually go to Silent Hill. but really, if they had put it back in Silent Hill, it'd just be "more of the same," and people *STILL wouldn't be happy with it. SH4 was a nice break from a "proper" Silent Hill, but still connected. Silent Hill Origins was made by an Amercian developer, so i was a little worried, and while i haven't beaten the game yet, what i've played so far i've really enjoyed. Origins helped ease a little of my worry about an American developer taking over the series. Silent Hill V i'm still worried about, but once again, i'm a Silent Hill whore, so i'll get it regardless.
@ Figboy You pretty much nailed my thoughts. SIlent Hill 3 is my favorite of the series though. My Favorite survival horror game of all time.
Screenshot #5 shows a craptastic 2D lighting effect from the lightsource on the left. begin sarcasm/ Look at that wonderfully flat line! So amazing, how'd they pull that off? I wish all developers could do lighting effects like that! /end sarcasm
That's the beam of light from his flashlight, and yeah if you aim a flashlight through a foggy/smoky area, that's what happens. If you read up on the game development at all, you'd see that in all screenshots the light will react as though fog were there even though they don't have the system ready to show off quite yet. The pic with the dog looks promising for the fog engine though.
I hope it delivers
I'm a little scared about a PS3 crappy port....framerate at first
i think the graphics looked better than this in silent hill 3 back on the ps2!!!!! please konami revise your opinion of handing this franchise to a bunch of amatures. i know it's not a big seller thats no reason to screw us fans of the game with a weak update.
man iv been dying for some like really spooky games! like this the new silent hill, condemned 2, alone in the dark! i hope they all live up to expectations i need to be scared again :D
Think the benchmark for realistic gaming gore and horror is still the very first Silent Hill on the PS1. It had a direct simple storyline ( the most important ), plus it was new and we have'nt seen anything like this type of game before. The less weapons you have at your disposal the scarier it got, which is the "true" experience of terror. It did'nt require any ballistic or some form high-tech gadgetry, it was a grassroots in your face game playing. It was just the best. And hope this one can re-create what the first series once was.
