The fog finally lifts on Silent Hill V - 1UP's preview and screens

Moonlighting in Slient Hill doesn't seem fun -- between the fogsoaked streets, twitching, faceless nurses, and the notoriously picky series fans, it's not a terribly inviting place for visitors. But the fearless folks at The Collective (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Marc Ecko's Getting Up) willingly spent several sleepless nights slaving away on a playable demo showcasing their vision for Silent Hill V, the first next-gen installment in Konami's nearly decade-old survival-horror franchise. All that caffeine paid off: Several other well-known development houses were in the running for the project, but none were dedicated (crazy?) enough to craft a prototype, so The Collective landed the sought-after gig.

But i'm sure this will be more mainstream. Sounds disturbing!!!

I'm sorry but The Collective sucks and I'm a huge fan of this franchise. While the nurses do look sexier than ever I'm very disappointed in knowing who's responsible for the development of this latest installment.

Running around killing zombie women is sick. Graphics are awesome but still to sick for me.

but that's the point! And don't forget the even more disturbing zombie children! Give me chills when I think about them!

Agreed, emaddox84. I'm not sure what they were. I don't know what they were supposed to be derived from. Creepy things regardless.

I'd hardly call them zombies. Possessed by demons, maybe, but not zombies. I don't even know if they are supposed to even be humans. I remember Silent Hill 2 had allot of mannequin looking creatures.

Silent Hill has been one of, if not, THE scariest game created. Resident Evil had its moments, but kind of went downhill as far as truly "frightening, wake up in the middle of the night nightmare" type of disturbing imagery when compared to the SH series.

As far as the game being made by The Collective, well, I'll wait and see. I'm not going to pass judgement based on past records. Many game producers create 2 or 3 (or more) crap games, then suddenly bust out and do something amazing. Besides, so far, the screens and videos that I've seen have looked good, especially this far from release.

The one thing that kind of makes me nervous (with this and many other titles), is the pre-holiday projected release time. I hope they don't just shove it out the door for Christmas. I would rather see a delay to get it right.
