Silent Hill Downpour
Silent Hill:Downpour = Greatness
While this game is getting bad reviews from IGN and other places...even other Silent Hill Fans are complaining....But why ? Yeh, sure.. the game needs a little more polish and starts out kinda slow, it gets better, a i'm not just sayin' this either! The gameplay is solid, the soundtrack is so good that I even downloaded one of the songs to my Ipod...! Oh...and it has a great story! Now, the choices in the game are very generic though,as it doesn't change anything except the ending, but it doesn't mean that the game should be bashed on because of a few small reasons to replay...like if you play through it three times like me it's nice to see a new ending and get some gamerscore,lol ! Give it a CHANCE !
still silent hill
so iv played every silent hill game out there up till downpour and i had to get it. but when i saw gameplay i was kind of turned off to it. i waited till it was on sale to get it and im glad i did! this game is yes different from the rest of the silent hills but ina good way. its not as scary or sketchy as the other silent hills but you still have that creepy silent hill feel to it. the combat system in my eyes is much improved since homecoming. this game isnt the best silent hill but is solid. i would recommend waiting till its under 35 dollars but defiantly worth it .
i spent 50$ and almost no fight scenes only some i didnt finish the story but these parts were some part boring man dont buy it.
Silent Hill : Downpour
This game gets a 8.2 out of 10 ! Although I gave it an 8 I have to say what brings this game down the most is the lag/frame-rate ! Thanks 4 reading my review on Silent Hill : downpour !
Don't buy this until it's below $20
If you are dying to see this game, you are MUCH better off watching Two Best Friends play it on YouTube. At many times, the gameplay is actually laughable. It runs on Unreal so texture pops are a common occurence. The puzzles and enemy designs lack creativity and the best part about this game was probably the sound, but even a 7/10 seems generous. Save some money and just watch a full playthrough of it on YouTube. It'll be more entertaining than the game itself.
Silent Hill Downpour is great for hardcore gamers.
When I first started playing Silent Hill Downpour,I expected the rock group Korn to be playing the theme song, but they didn't. Maybe the song will be at the ending credits, I don't know? But I really like the way hte game is presented, & how it plays. It didn't take me long to get used to the controls at all. Other players of the game have complained that the game lags a lot, but that's due to the autosave feature, no big deal to me. The thing I hate is when I encounter that entity that wants to suck Murphy dry, I've never seen anything like that in a game before. But for the most part, despite the game lagging when it autosaves, it's a gem, so GO BUY IT!!!
Not scary, more cinematic experience
I've never played silent hill before in my life. I have heard it's freaky, so I thought I'd try it. Here's what I think. The game's scary moments are mixed in jump scares, pshychological fear, and freaky atmosphere. Yet, it's not very scary. It tries to be cinematic, and it is. If you are only playing for a scare, you won't enjoy this. But, if, like me, you just want to see what everyone's talking about and play a short game that has a bit of an appeal, go ahead. This is the only game that I've actually enjoyed watching cutscenes, because they were more like watching an animated movie to me. The game is OK, until the end. The end is awesome. THere are a few different endings, I got the truth and justice ending, or Ending B, which did an amazing job of binding together confusing parts of the game to where they really make a lot of sense. But, the game is pretty repetitive, and took me only a few days to complete, like 6 hours. Don't buy it for more than 20 bucks, but it's an awesome game to rent.
Totally worth it.
This game is worth every penny. I have been a huge fan of survival horrors for a long time, and this is one of them. I have played all of the Silent Hills and yes this is one of the best. It is getting bad reviews because of the hard puzzles, but you have to realize, if it wasn't hard it wouldn't be fun! I'm on my third time playing it all the way though and if you like strategic survival horrors than this game is for you!
BEST BIRTHDAY PRESENT EVER!!!
I got this for my birthday and i thought wouldnt like it but it is the best!!! Ive been a big game fan of silent hill for a while so this continues the scary saga.
Loved this game, from start to finish. Yeah it doesn't have quite the same feel as the old silent hills but it's still a very very creepy game. Trust me if you liked the aspects of the old silent hill's on how it would just mess with your head and give you chills. That's what this game does, don't listen to the nay-sayers nor the haters talkin' about how this game is total garbage. Would you believe someone that said jumping off a cliff feels GREAT just because they said so? Anyway, I love this game and I hope you all give it a shot, it's totally worth it!
