Silent Hill Homecoming is a Adventuring game. Adventure games are enjoyed for two reasons: they provide enemy encounters that require tactics and strategy to conquor, and they create a fantasy world in which to explore and adventure.
We have our reporters and community keeping an eye on Silent Hill Homecoming for you, and we'll keep you up to date with the latest developments as they happen.
Silent Hill Homecoming is the sixth instalment of the survival horror franchise and I was concerned my long history with the series would lead to dashed expectations. But my worries that the nuanced storylines of the past would be lost were unfounded. Homecoming delivered a strong narrative and disturbing story that gave me a chill those old games did. Even though the combat was far too difficult and frustrating, it didnt detract from the dark and horrific atmosphere that made this game a great, if unsettling, experience.
Although the previous games have been flawed (and I mean very flawed). The technical difficulties such as constant loading screens, fixed camera angles and awkward combat did give Silent Hill a certain charm. It was like watching a masterfully disturbing film that had been badly directed and had some iffy special effects and a distracting film grain shoved over it.
