Great Game!

This game was really enjoyable! I enjoyed playing all the way through! Had great creepy atmospheres and scary moments. I really liked it! I gave it a 9 out of 10 because the only negative thing about it was that the combat system is a little stressful and makes it difficult to kill enemies but it's not supposed to be an intense action game so that's okay. Overall i loved this game! Would recommend it to anyone who loves horror!

I saw that this game had some really bad reviews but as a fan of the series I felt I still needed to check it out. First thing to mention is that the combat is horrible. However, this game tries hard to make the player avoid conflict so the bad combat isn't too much of an issue as long as you're not blood thirsty and fight everything you see. There's some great scare moments and the atmosphere is great. I would say this probably had the 2nd best story in the series next to Silent Hill 2. If you're a fan of the series (love the setting, puzzles, scares, and weird stories) rent it for sure, if not then I wouldn't bother with it (go play resident evil or any number of horror games with better controls/combat).

the game was good i have played every silent hill game that ever came out, and to be honest this game was good but it lacked like crazy in story line and cut scenes. i love the other silent hill games cause of how into the game you would get and how scary and sad and emotional they where. downpour hardly had much to do with story and it sure didn't get me feeling real into it, sure u got the guide lines of the story but it was nothing like past games where u talk to alot of people through out the game making you feel like you where really in the game and solving cases. the game seamed to be to short. all in all if this was the first silent hill game i ever played i would have thought twice about playing any of the others. and i give this game a 9 cause despite how short the game was and how much it lacked on the story/movies. the graphics where the best i seen on any game yet not just the silent hill games, it looks like u are controlling real people and the lip syncing is like dead on!
