Games Radar: Silent Hill: Homecoming Impressions

It's been a long time since anyone set foot in the relentlessly punishing town of Silent Hill.

one of the main reasons silent hill was so scary is because of your inability to kill all of the monsters in sight. The game harnessed a level of helplessness that couldnt be found in other games. This game seems to have done away with that and that, to me, is very disappointing.

I am still staying optimistic about this game but it better not turn into a RE game with a different setting.

While I certainly enjoy Resident Evil games (RE3 FTW!!) I agree with you. There was something about the first 3 Silent Hill games that REALLY creeps you the hell out and makes you feel completely hopeless all the way up to the very end. I just beat Silent Hill 4, and while it was good, it certainly lost some of the creepy/horror gameplay that I missed.

The damn siren never even went off and changed the world around you!!

If this game does not go back to the gameplay it had on first and second time, I think I'll go back to RE again, yes, RE, the one I left when I saw Silent Hill.

ATITD just got dethroned in September for me to make way for the king of survival horror games. My only hope is that they didn't try to ape RE4 too much, because I want the fear that prevents me from completing a Silent Hill game to remain.
