My big beef with this game not enough scary moments are bad guys. You can go for 30 minns without nothing to fight. Then when you do cross paths with a bad guy its not that thrilling. halfway through the game i only dyed onetime and that was from a falll. If you want a scary game go play Dead-space 2

Before we begin. I've played all the Silent Hill's and have liked them all. The community is usually split on how they see The Room and Homecoming but I honestly like them both...

And that's not to say that I didn't like this one, but, it truly doesn't add anything to the series. Is it more Silent Hill in the sense of it being just more of something we like, therefore, it's good? Yeah. But, at the same time, there's no real evolution to be had. Earlier in the series, there were significant improvements and even some changes, especially with the approach in The Room. Homecoming may have simply benefitted from being on the next generation system (possibly the same thing that aided The Room) but there were also progressions in combat and story development that progressed the series as a whole. Origin also had some of these attributes. Even Silent Memories was an interesting turn, albeit, a bit different.

This game, is in no way a "bad" Silent Hill. It just is Silent Hill. It's totally fine. I will say that, on the harder difficulties, it really makes combat unbalanced (they want you to flee) but I suppose that just their way of making it difficult...

If you like Silent Hill, there's nothing to really complain about other than technical bugs (especially when saving) but if you've got a pile of other games, or just not in the mood for this genre, don't feel bad if you save this one off to the side. If you think you're gonna pop this in a get hooked... probably not.
