IGN Silent Hill: Homecoming Hands-on

If you've ever been away from your hometown for a while, you know just how complicated a return trip can be. You have to make your way there, deal with family and friends who frequently ask you why you left and wonder what's going on with you, and sometimes deal with problems that you simply didn't expect. It's even worse when you have an emergency on your hands, particularly because you may be expected to do more than you feel comfortable or capable of. So you can only imagine the problems that Alex Shepherd, the protagonist of Silent Hill: Homecoming, faces in the upcoming game from The Collective and Konami when he is plunged into a maelstrom of supernatural activity. I managed to get our hands on a PlayStation 3 build of the game and explore the first few areas along with Alex to see what secrets await him.

but it seems that this one will be better than Alone in the dark.. I really liked the first and second one, but after that it wasnt my fav anymore.

hope this one to be good.. atleast not as buggy as Alone in the dark.

yeah it kinda sounds like its going to be another "SH: Replica". I liked Origins and I even finished SH:4. I love this series and will probably like this game. That is, if the combat doesnt make the game too easy. Half of the games intensity was always about getting away from the monsters because you didnt stand a chance against them.

My heart always dropped if there was more than one monster in a room that i entered. If this is like a TPS I will flip out.

wasn't that bad.....especially if you got it cheap.

This game needs to sell well for Konami to continue the series. I hope this really does sell well enough. I dont want the series to end just yet :(

if this game is anything like 3 im sold because i put off playing 3 when ii first got it, to me it was too disturbing i was so scared of the monsters the setting and all it was amazing better than anything i played before. Personally im looking forward to this and dead space, re:5 is more like an action game now but will be buying that too
