SILENT HILL: HOMECOMING Silent Hill: Homecoming, the sixth installment of this classic ... more

console series is not only the first to be
programmed for the next-generation PS3 machine,
but also adds a new central character into the
mix. Alex Shepherd is a war veteran returning home
from an overseas tour of duty, following
acceptance of compassionate leave after receiving
the news that his younger brother, Joshua, has
gone missing. Alex begins his investigations in
his small home-town of Shepherd's Glen, but soon
finds himself in the mist-shrouded and seemingly
empty streets of Silent Hill? With understandable
strides forward in the look of the game thanks to
the increased power of the PS3, the gameplay and
control mechanics have also benefited from the
upgrade to a next-gen machine. More items from the
scenery can be used as weapons and collecting them
is now done on the fly rather than equipping them
through an inventory, meaning the tension in
hectic battle sequences goes through the roof as
players have less time to react. Alex can also
vary the strength of his force during combat,
using combinations of light and hard attacks that
can be strung together in combinations to fell
enemies, or powered up for slower but more intense
results. Weaker or harder counter attacks are also
included as is a dodge system that lets the player
skip an enemy strike and instantly attack the
assailant if executed correctly, or one that
reduces damages but doesn't avoid it completely if
timing is slightly off. Some weapons encountered
upon during play also have 'finishing' style moves
for more variety when defeating enemies. An
all-new soundtrack by acclaimed series composer
Akira Yamaoka accompanies the new look and
gameplay features, promising to make this one of
the most chilling and atmospheric Silent Hill
adventures to date.

The Silence returns home

Advantagesenjoyable storyline, great voice acting, likeable characters

Disadvantagesplot not as complex, a bit too combat orientated, quite linear

"Silent Hill Homecoming is the 6th installment in the Silent Hill series, available on PS3 and Xbox 360. It boasts next generation graphics with movie style voice acting and more user-friendly controls. This is the first silent hill game that made me want to play it from start to finish. I was hooked from the begining and unlike other games in the series, Homecoming really intrigued me. From the games introduction it is obvious, to me, that it is a ..." Read review

Silent Hill Homecoming: Good enough, but not great,

AdvantagesInteresting plot, fantastic atmosphere

DisadvantagesNot immersive enough, no more creepy camera angles.

"=== Silent Hill: Homecoming === As a fan of the Silent Hill series, I bought this game with certainly some worries whether this game was going to be good or bad, so I was both pleased and upset when I realised that it was a bit of both. The game certainly succeeds in some ways, but I can see this game as being quite a disappointment to fans of the previous installments. '''Plot''' In Homecoming, you play as Alex Shepherd, a man who has just returned ..." Read review
