As with most of the horror games going to just action, its good to know we can still trust silent hill to remain at its roots for the most part. Its a great horror game I loved how the missions play out and the freedom to do what you want and go at your own pace but at the same time I don't like how the weapons kept breaking and you could only carry one weapon. I loved the side missions though, they give the game just a little bit more life even though the main story isn't but about 7 hours long. I still recommend this game.

I just beat the game and am sending the game back, I wasnt going to write a review.. but after giving this game a chance and playing it for about 13 hrs, i think i should type down my thoughts
To start, I'll say the graphics are pretty good at times maybe for closeups etc, but the other half of the time the graphics seem to be close to mediocre, and there is a frame rate drop/lag of some sort. That I dont know if its just the disc i have or its part of that Silent Hill Downpour experience, so im not sure about this. The music was ok i guess, the intro music by Korn was good though, that I did like. The gameplay mechanics need alot of more tweeking and character control and camera control range from mediocre to horrible. The story suprisingly was good or atleast it was good to me. Too bad a good story is wasted on a half hearted game. Team Silent where art thou?
From 1 - 10
Graphics:7 (Sometimes 8)
Music: 6 (Korn 9)
Overall: 6.5 for Barely okay..
