    best silent hill game in a long time<br /> any true fan should enjoy this game

    Rated on March 13, 2012 by danodop

    Downpour met all my expectations, its everything I wanted in a silent hill game. The game builds and builds with tension, the storyline and atmosphere are the strongest parts about the game. The gam...

    An excellent addition to the Silent Hill franchise! I love the option to choose good or evil. Reminds me of Condemned and The Suffering mixed into one glorious game. Opening prison scene is very gr...

    Is this as good as Team Silent's games?

    Rated on March 13, 2012 by Atheno

    Silent Hill: Downpour sets it self a bit higher than Homecoming in terms of music, art, graphics and also game play. The storyline also really shines in this one, having quite a nice multi-ending. One...

    quick, honest review from a survival horror fan

    Rated on March 15, 2012 by vallee05

    I played every Silent Hill game, this game isn't as amazing as the Dead Space games, but it has a new twist on the series. Previous SH games revolves about the story on the town, this one revolves aro...

    Kick ass game with kick ass movie scenes and kick ass enemies.

    Rated on March 15, 2012 by UmbrellaIncsSpy

    This game is not only fun to play but it is the right kind of difficult too. I think my favorite scene as of right now is the devils pit cart ride *you know what I'm talking about*. I think its harder...

    The Good vs Bad when it comes down to Silent Hill: Downpour.

    Rated on March 19, 2012 by thatSTERLINkid

    Silent Hill has always had a rather large spot in my heart when it comes down to survival horror. With its lack of action, slow pace, eerie environments, and horrifying enemies, what's not to love? We...

    Although it is a good entry in the Silent Hill universe, it's not without it's flaws.

    Let me start the review by saying that I am a very big fan of the Silent Hill franchise. Ever since the original PS1 version, I've always prefered the psychological tone of the horror in a Silent Hil...

    Silent Hill: Downpour's ending creeps up on you too suddenly and leaves too many elements half-explained in its wake.

    Rated on March 28, 2012 by mhaed

    Silent Hill: Downpour may be a breath of fresh air for some Silent Hill fans that were less than satisfied with Silent Hill: Homecoming, but that's not to say Downpour doesn't have its problems and sh...

    Silent Hill, once seen as the psychological king of the horror genre. But can this game bring the series back to form?

    Rated on June 22, 2012 by killip

    Lets be honest, for those of us that worship 'Team Silent' original Silent Hill games, it's fair to say the series has taken a 180 nose dive since Team Silent left the series. Countless developer cha...

    Rated on March 30, 2012 by maj4530

    Every silent hill fans know that this game has got nothing to do with SH franchise. Everything about the game is disappointing. There is constant frame rate issue, bad combat, terrible story. The ga...
