Akira Yamaoka talks about Silent Hill 5

In a recent interview with GamePro, Akira Yamaoka revealed a few of their plans for the next installment in Konami's popular Silent Hill series. Yamaoka producer the PC version of Silent Hill 3 and also worked as a sound director on the series.

According to Yamaoka, Silent Hill 5 will more or less resemble Silent Hill 2 " in the terms of the way the player is directed and the characters' behavior." There's also a strong chance that the game will be losing the camera angle used in Silent Hill: Origins. "I like it and agree with the choice for the [PSP], but I don't think that's the camera angle we want on a home console," said Yamaoka. "That way you don't see enough of the surroundings that really mean a lot to the player in Silent Hill."

The story is too old to be commented.

Hope they could simplify the story which was more effective and very creepy like in the very first Silent Hill ( PS1 ), and then they could up-the ante on the puzzles, ghostly sounds and gore factor for the various un-godly creatures and special effects. Definitely take-out those dizzying camera angles which shifts a lot on ( Inner Fears - SH2 ). This game truly is the best in the psychological-horror genre.
