If you've ever been away from your hometown for a while, you know just how complicated a return trip can be. You have to make your way there, deal with family and friends who frequently ask you why you left and wonder what's going on with you, and sometimes deal with problems that you simply didn't expect. It's even worse when you have an emergency on your hands, particularly because you may be expected to do more than you feel comfortable or capable of. So you can only imagine the problems that Alex Shepherd, the protagonist of Silent Hill: Homecoming, faces in the upcoming game from The Collective and Konami when he is plunged into a maelstrom of supernatural activity. I managed to get our hands on a PlayStation 3 build of the game and explore the first few areas along with Alex to see what secrets await him.
