All in all, Silent Hill: Homecoming is a successful entry to the series. Even though it doesn't do anything spectacularly new in terms of the franchise or the genre, it does do the old ways justice. Homecoming also comes with the series' trademark multiple endings for you to discover, which adds a nice chunk of content if you're a completion freak. A lot of folks were very concerned when they heard a North American developer was going to develop the next installment in the franchise, but thankfully they did a good job.
If you have ever wanted to check out a Silent Hill game, or you're a returning fan, Homecoming is a great place to both start, and continue your journey walking (but more likely running) the foggy streets of Silent Hill.
