Silent Hill can potentially come back with this title

Yeah, It's looking fairly promising. Taking notes from shattered memories helps, I swear that game is just under-rated because nobody played it.

But yeah, when they said 'Water plays a big part in the otherworld' at first i was like 'HELL NO' then i remembered in silent hill 2 when the room is on fire and the chick is like 'This is how it always looks to me', made me realised we've pretty much just been seeing a rehash of the same SH1 'Flesh and Decay' themed otherworld with the exception of shattered memories. Colour me excited.

Shattered Memories was a stunning trip from start to finish. It's easy to rip on it because of it's unconventional gameplay design and the fact that it didn't feel a whole lot like a Silent Hill game. But I've played few games that have been so perfectly-paced from beginning to end and remained consistently intriguing throughout.

Dare I say it's my second favourite in the SH franchise after number 2.

And yes, Downpour has me wholly excited too. It dares to be different in some respects, yet seems to retain that Silent Hill vibe/aura that the later games have lacked.

Seems far, Shattered Memory is my favorite in the series. That game is amazing.

"Enemy chase scenes similar to Silent Hill: Shattered Memories return."

"The ability to look over your shoulder and knock down objects to slow enemies returns from Silent Hill: Shattered Memories."

"Combat is similar to the classic titles, but with an Origins-like limited weapon durability."

"Boss battles contain Quick-Time-Events."

"No weapon inventory."

They really are trying to make the shittiest game ever, aren't they?

Also, why are they recycling the worst things from Origins and Shattered Memories? Sequels, in general, are supposed to improve on what the previous game/film/whatever did, right? I don't see any improvments here.
