Despite clunky combat and various frame rate issues, Silent Hill: Downpour is still a solid survival horror romp that any fan of the genre should take a punt on.
- The superb atmosphere and gripping story
- Great puzzles
- Lots of replay value
- Choppy frame rate
- Poor melee combat
- Generic monster design
(continued from previous page) ...stab at the franchise providing it irons out some of the more glaring issues. To top it off, Downpour is also one of the meatiest Silent Hill games on offer, and took me just over 14 hours to complete – and that’s without completing all side quests. With multiple endings (of which moral choices play a strong part in deciding your fate) and unlockable content on offer, Downpour is an immersive and gripping, if admittedly flawed survival horror rollercoaster.

Just the way Silent Hill should be ...

So far I'm really digging it. Brings me back to the good old Resident Evil 1-3 days. Good review Mike I agree 100% with you on this game now if only Resident Evil will come back to us like this franchise did!

Lots of potential that went wasted with this game.
Gaming companies need to start providing quality content and not just rely on their name branding.

I completely agree with the generic monster design...I think that's the main thing that really bothered me about the game. Homecoming was great, in my opinion. The Schism always scared me. Story wise though, with Downpour, I thouroughly enjoyed. Overall, good game.
