Chad Review: Silent Hill Downpour is the worst of the Silent Hill series

The story is too old to be commented.

I'm not surprised one bit. the series has been going downhill ever since Konami started whoring it out to random developers.Silent Hill were the pinnacles of their genre. now that genre is pretty much dead.

we also have the worst port of Silent Hill HD collection.

I still long for a survival horror game that's built 90% around suspense and 10% around fighting monsters. If the fighting is even necessary. A horror game where you actually need to run away from what's chasing you instead of just shooting it dead.

err, yeah that's Silent Hill downpour. you played it?

fastNslowww2213d ago

lol, PLAY the game...it's one of the best survival horrors this generation on consoles. Don't go by this flawed hateful review.

...this title alone makes this article complete bs. Downpour is pretty good. Homecoming was def the worst as far as I can tell. And in my opinion, its right there with silent hill 2 and 3.

BS!!!

Downpour is a great game. The framerate could have been better ...

this a joke?

Downpour, IMO is the best survival horror this generation, some of the best puzzles and immersive environments I've seen. Not to mention the scares in certain parts of the game. It's very tension field at moments.

The game relies on escaping and rarely using weapons, a true survival horror concerning limitations, etc. something we haven't seen in awhile.

The worst installments in the Silent Hill franchise are The Room and Homecoming. The latter obviously screwed up by having too much emphasis on combat, a rehashed plot ripped from Silent Hill 2 and an art style influenced by the film. The Room however was just a complete mess. A protagonist shorn of personality, a finicky inventory system, irritating ghost enemies, the fact that the second portion of the game reused all previous locations, the fact that the second half became an escort mission, burping monsters, possessed wheelchairs, having to tolerate Walter's cackling soundbite everytime you run into him.

Downpour is flawed, and could have spent a little more time in development polishing off its technical performance, but it gets so much right and remains true to the survival-horror genre. And we all know how precious little survival-horror there has been this gen.
