Man,konami needs to let the series die. team Silent left, things went to hell in this game. sad

Sadly most of them went and joined Kojima Production. Maybe that was why Konami handled the project over to western.

Well, I'm going back to waiting for Siren 3 from Japanese developers.

Sony should buy SH, i can see SH game made by SCE Studio Japan (Siren series) :)

Silent Hill Homecoming wasn't bad at all, I really enjoyed it. Who ever says otherwise must never played through it or just talking based on websites reviews. This Silent Hill is looking good. (BTW a Silent Hill dosen't feel like a Silent Hill if it's not played in a dark room with surround sound)

SH Homecoming was just ok but it was nowhere as good as previous SH titles. Silent Hill: Shattered Memories is the best SH game made by western devs.

There all good, but my least favorite was Silent Hill 4 The Room. It wasn't dark enough for me and I didn't like the battle system, but the concept being stuck in a room was cool.

they made The Room, and the second half of that game is quite possibly the nadir of the entire series. A giant escort mission, replaying the same levels all over again and being subjected to Walter's cackling laugh over and over and over does not make for an enjoyable experience. I'm with you on that - The Room is my least favourite too and maybe it was for the best that the members of Team Silent went off to work on other things. Their heart just wasn't in it anymore.

On the other hand, Climax gave us Shattered Memories, and that game was all kinds of ace. I guess it's worth mentioning that while it's not Climax developing Downpour, some of the people who were involved with SM are working on this new game too.

but it was filmed by camera instead of being a direct feed. This one is a direct feed however and it's so much better now; being able to pick up on all the nuances of the audio design while getting a much better grasp of how the graphics are faring. I think this game looks incredible visually, and the whole ambiance is very Silent Hill-esque too. In true fashion, the conversation is full of awkward silences and uneasy pauses between dialouge, a lot like James' interactions with the other characters of Silent Hill 2.

I recognize the voice of the mail man immediately. That's Dreban from MGS4.

This game looks actually good. Yup its Drebin all right.
