My Brother Rented SIlent Hill: Downpour for a couple of weeks about 6 days ago, and I thought that maybe I woud be brave enough to give it a try! So I did and it was a MAJOR disapointment!
I completed it yesterday (Got the 'Truth and Justice ending' )
And tbh, it was a pretty naf ending, seemed lazy in my opinion >.<
The monsters werent even scary, and I dont like that they have added a whole new part to the town (And I find it kind of weird that a small resort town like that even has the enormous prison that it does o.O)
The story was Okay... The music was okay... the atmosphere was a little creepy from time to time and there were a couple of cheap scares.
Okay it wasnt THAT bad but it didnt seem like Silent Hill at all.
(Ive not played the other games but I have watched the 'Let's Play' videos for SH1, SH2, SH3 & SH4.... SH3 was the best IMO, too creepy to play just yet though xD)
So yeah... Im so glad he rented it and not bought it, I dont think we will play it again xP
Yeah, gotta agree with you. Homecoming and Downpour have both got nothing on the originals!
I've played through just about every Silent Hill game myself, in terms of storyline number 2 was my favourite. In terms of scariness? Definitely number 3.
But yeah, it was pretty annoying especially as they said it was going to be a lot more like the originals. It was still way too combat-based, lacking puzzles and the overall atmosphere wasn't anywhere near as tense.
To this day, if I play Silent Hill 3 there are parts where I will just try and rush through just because staying in one room too long will result in my heart exploding. O.o
