Rely on Horror: Silent Hill Downpour Review

Rely on Horror: Despite the issues with the game, I feel they are outweighed by how much this game did right. This Silent Hill fan feels right as rain.

Interesting, looks like Vatra Games nailed it.

Hmmm, well then. I am really happy to see this, coming from a huge fan of the originals. Eager to see more reviews.

-Good to hear, I'm going to play this after Mass Effect III, It will be nice to play a game that isn't surrounded with so much bitching and hating for a while... *Hopefully* :)


I have no idea about how this new SH is going (I'm avoiding videos and images this time, just like the first time I played SH, much of the terror come from having no idea of what kind of disgusting monster may or may not be waiting for you in the fog) but considering that the fans of the franchises are very conservative about gameplay and atmosphere, I can see SH getting "fan trolled" too.

I mean, there's people still bitching about Team Silent disbanding back in 2005 and downplaying every developer that filled in the void ever since.

But I wouldn't compare the buzz to ME3 as this game not only is suffering from fan backlash (in my opinion justifiable, afterall the removing of end changing choices is a step back considering past games have it) as it has a lot of non fans "concerned" with the day one DLC bullcrap (again, I wouldn't blame the fans, and I agree that the DLC strategy is lame, but many people are just using it to downplay ME3 while they overlook the same problem in other games).

Edit: lol nevermind, I thought you were talking about DP but were talking about ME3, my apologies.

-Very true, there is no comparison, it's just sad, i love Mass Effect so much, and then i go on the blog sites and its rant after rant. However, Perhaps I'll get angry when i finish it today or tomorrow and see this ending that everyone is ready to chop heads off over.

Anyways, after i posted i redacted on all the people yelling over on Amazon message boards about the new Voice overs in the HD collection. I played SH:2 so many years ago i can't even remember the Voice acting, but i guess they put in new and old options. And yes, the Silent Hill fans have also been a rabid bunch, especially after Homecoming.. ugh.. which that game... I really wanted to like it, I liked the atmosphere for the first 5 hours, then it quickly fell apart with VERY clunky combat, where I'm all about the Exploration.

DoctorXpro2415d ago

Laxman2415d ago
