Staying true to the franchise's original roots, the game returns with another third person horror experience, and an all new thought provoking storyline. Players will once again find themselves face to face with their deepest sins and fears in the strange world of Silent Hill.

The survival horror experience begins after a prison transport vehicle careens off the road, leaving lone inmate Murphy Pendleton stranded in Silent Hill. Gamers will encounter mind-bending puzzles, as well as horrific creatures and otherworld terrors using everyday objects from wooden chairs to glass bottles to fend off their enemies. The natural response, fight or flight is left to the player as they unravel a dark, thought-provoking storyline which will appeal to fans of the early, classic Silent Hill series, as well as anyone who enjoys a deep, psychological horror experience.

In addition to the main storyline, players will also be presented with variable side quests along the way that can change depending on their play style, revealing unknown evils within the town.

 Still the best survival horror game

I was dissapointed with homecoming, but Downpour improved on every aspect of homecoming that I hated and is a fantastic game.

The atmosphere is excellent as always, the puzzles are as good as the old school silent hills and the fighting is a lot better than Homecoming. I also enjoyed the storyline, it was as good as the story of silent hill 2.

Negatives of this game are it's glitchy (although to be honest this never really affected play and I didn't find this annoying), the evil world is not as scary as previous games, you just run around trying to escape an evil mist thing and the games saves so much I don't find it as scary as the first four games. Personally, the thing that made the original silent hill and resident evil games scary for me was the restricted saving and weapons but these things are never an issue in this game, making it a lot easier.

I was also very annoyed by the fact you lose your items near the end of the game as I had saved all my pistol ammo and health packs only to have them unfairly taken, this was probably the only thing I really hated about this game (and why I'm not giving it a 5*). So, don't bother saving ammo and health!

One last thing, the combat in this game is excellent, although I tended to run more than fight (to conserve ammo, grrr). The axe works a treat and I made sure to try and have one at all times.

 Awesome

This is an amazing game, if you were put off by homecoming, downpour is so much better. This is a game that you never want to end, the atmosphere is gripping and the story is compelling. I love horror games and play them all the time and this one makes me not want to go through doors that have a strange noise on the other side. If you want a horror game that will freak you out and actually scare you at times this is the one for you ***** Best adventure game I've played all year
