Hi Tom! Gamecube wise definitely go for Eternal Darkness, the Resident Evil remake is pretty damn impressive even by today's standards and Resident Evil: Zero is also pretty solid (strange gameplay mechanics aside). For Xbox 360 I would recommend Alan Wake, not exactly pant-destroyingly scary but very spooky/atmospheric with plenty of suspense. If you want unreliable controls (?) and would like to see a weirder side of the genre check out Deadly Premonition. Easily one of the most original and memorable games of recent times, with as many genuinely hilarious moments as there are terrifying ones. The Condemned games are great on the 360, very visceral and violent but with lots of atmosphere. The Nintendo 64 doesn't have many notable survival horror games. Resident Evil 2 being the obvious one but Nightmare Creatures is also there if you want something along the lines of a Gothic hack 'n' slash title. The best survival horror titles in my opinion live on the PS2. Depending on where you are in the world they can usually be picked up pretty cheap, and the games (a few exceptions aside) can also be picked up for peanuts. Backwards compatibility for PS1 horror games doesn't hurt either! -Fergus

I by no means think this is wrong or have anything against a genuine attitude of improving upon previous work, but has anyone considered this as an intelligent way of hyping a new product? Pretending to completely crucify a product that has already sold by the bucket load doesn't come with any risks since the cash is already in your pocket, and in cases like this it leads fans to defend it, making them bolster the games reputation and reinforce the idea its a great game among the current fan-base and advertise to any new potential players. I'm not saying Bad Company 2 was a flawless game, but I doubt he really believes it's an awful product, making small flaws seem like huge ones that will be fixed in the next game makes said next game sound like a massive improvement over the last already great game and reinforces it's status as a must buy. It's all just clever psychology if you ask me.

Looks great, glad Kevin VanOrd is reviewing the game, his review for Demon's Souls was excellent.

The thought of a new entry in the Timesplitters series makes me want to dress up as the Impersonator and do an awkward celebratory hip thrust... Thank'y ver' mussh..

As a proper silent hill game....no, as a potentially promising survival horror game past the name, I say yes :)

@BULLSEYEGUNMAN when someone who is as good at providing balanced reviews with almost no bias at all (this one included) as Kevin VanOrd I find it worrying how people still seem to gripe at scores! This is a very positive review, and YOU are entitled to your own opinion, what is the problem?

I'm more surprised at the amount of people likening this to dante's inferno over something like Devil May Cry. It will also probably be very different from both when you actually consider who's making the game! I have pretty high hopes for this one :)

Sounds like an interesting concept, Guillermo Del Toro has a great imagination, and his ideas could make some great videogames if utilized correctly.
