Silent Hill: Homecoming [PS3]

 

Immortal combat

Doesn't break any new ground, but a worthy addition to the franchise.

Silent Hill: Homecoming (PS3) review

 

A return to the familiar…

Steeped in generations-old traditions on one hand, while throwing in radical (and not really necessary) additions with the other. Ultimately you're left cursing at almost every turn.

Silent Hill: Homecoming (2008)

 

While most Silent Hills have been the twisted brainchildren of Japanese coders, the business of bringing the series jerking to life on the Xbox 360 and PS3 has been entrusted to an American development house. Yet while the Yank's more gung-ho approach...

Silent Hill Homecoming

 

The Silent Hill series has provided some of the most heart-stopping, pant-staining psychological terror ever seen in any form of media. More or less a decade ago, I remember sitting with a controller clenched in my hands scared witless but desperate to...

Outstanding sound and lighting ; Interesting story and characters ; A good horror title

Moves series in a new direction ; Lacks the psychology of fear ; Combat heavy

Silent Hill: Homecoming Review

 

For the first time, finally on the next-gen consoles, can this edition of "Silent Hill" scare us enough?

Replay value ; Interesting storyline ; Monster design

Just not scary ; Fogging ; Quite short

I wanted to love "Silent Hill: Homecoming". It has a pretty interesting story, and a lot of endings, which add to the replay value.

Silent Hill Homecoming

 

The return to Silent Hill will feel warm and cozy for veterans. Never has a game been more appropriately titled that Silent Hill: Homecoming. Not only does this latest chapter...

New combat system works well ; Creepy atmosphere and visuals ; Outstanding musical score

Save system feels archaic ; Puzzles are hit and miss ; Pyramid Head is only a cameo

Silent Hill: Homecoming - PS3 review at Thunderbolt Games

 

There comes a time when almost every videogame series needs a re-invention. It's not surprising - the law of diminishing returns kicks in and developers find that not only are they lacking inspiration but their once-unshakable fans are becoming...

Silent Hill: Homecoming

 

When the Silent Hill series shifted development teams away from Konami's own Team Silent to Climax Studios in Silent Hill: 0rigins, things suddenly because a lot more action-oriented. New hero Travis the trucker came armed to the teeth with an athletic...

Good improvements to combat, and it’s much more strategic with dodging playing an important role ; Moody and atmospheric soundtrack from Akira Yamaoka and good overall voice acting ; Five different endings, disturbed child’s drawings and photos to...

Unnecessarily convoluted environmental navigation ; Some blurry textures and minor slowdown in areas ; The storyline, while good, is fairly predictable

At this point Konami seems firmly committed to a more action-oriented Silent Hill, and while some long-time fans of the series may not like it Homecoming is a solid step forward in that direction for the franchise. While not incredibly shocking the...

Silent Hill Homecoming

 

For the sixth installment of the Silent Hill franchise, new mechanics on new platforms help reinvigorate the series while maintaining a solid feel of the previous games. Everything you have come to love about Silent Hill is still here, so for those who...

Silent Hill: Homecoming Review

 

You can never go back.

Compelling plot, repulsive creatures, unsettling Otherworld

Constant need for the map, uninspiring puzzles, unbalanced combat

Much like the history of Silent Hill, Homecoming is a battleground, marred by the clash between tradition and modernization. Its graphical prowess and combative strengths are, in equal parts, its overcompensated and underdeveloped weaknesses. Still,...
