I am a huge fan of silent hill so i am a bit gutted to be writing this.
I understand that after so many silent hill games that a change might be needed but not this much of a change. It really is a terrible game with some of the most ridiculous changes i have ever seen to any game in my life. All of the scare factor and tension you felt playing the games has gone and instead your left with a game you would expect to see as an i pod app rather than a game.
Its a complete disaster and i would strongly urge everyone to avoid this game. The vita is capable of so much but games like this are letting it down.
