Xbox 360 Fanboy writes: "Most Pleasant Suprise of 2008 - Silent Hill: Homecoming
I'll admit that I was not expecting great things from Silent Hill: Homecoming. It wasn't developed by Konami's Silent Hill team. It wasn't even developed by Konami at all. No, it was being developed by The Collective (later Double Helix), a western developer whose most recent games included Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and Mark Ecko's Getting Up. Not exactly terrifying survival horror experiences.
But, lo and behold, Homecoming turned out to be a very good entry in the series. The story was decent, the combat was much improved, and the atmosphere was dark, oppressive, and wonderful (in a creepy way)."
