Silent Hill: Downpour (Sony PlayStation 3, 2012)
About this product
|The eighth feature entry in Konami's premiere survival-horror series continues the traditions of tense exploration and hell-spawned attacks in a disturbing, rural setting, while adding stereoscopic 3D visuals to engulf the player in hazy scenes of pending doom. Set in and around the recurrently creepy town of Silent Hill, Downpour follows an original storyline of a main character with a troubled background. The adventure begins as a prison bus goes off the road in a heavy storm, and convict Murphy Pendleton finds himself, alone and unarmed, in the woods that outskirt the village.|
Many of Downpour's locations may be familiar from earlier adventures, but even players who have survived Silent Hill in the past will explore never-before-seen areas, including a diner, defunct transport tunnels, and an abandoned mine, aptly called the Devil's Pit. The first Silent Hill game produced since Akira Yamaoka left Konami, Downpour's score was composed by Daniel Licht, known for his work on Showtime's macabre serial killer drama, Dexter. The pop-metal band Korn contributes a song to the soundtrack as well.

Fantastic game more bang for your buck at this price!
I'm a huge fan of the Silent Hill series and realized that while I've platinumed this game on my PS3, I did not own it. I have all of the other Silent Hill games in my collection, including the ones that came out on the PS2 and Silent Hill for the PSOne.
I know that this game in particular got quite a few bad reviews, and I can understand where the reviewers come from in that respect. It had a lot it didn't offer, quite a few places that had loads of room for improvement, etc. But in my personal opinion, as far as Silent Hill games go, this is definitely in my top 2 favorite entries so far, my #1 favorite being SH3.
Downpour has astonishing graphics, a twisted story that I definitely wasn't expecting in several areas, and fantastic ambiance. If you're caught up in the moment and not sure which of the Silent Hill franchise to make your first play, make it this one. Unless you're in it for story and timeline... then I recommend you start earlier in the series, probably with Shattered Memories or the first entry.Read full review

Game can be challenging but tedious at times. Hopefully the next is scarier
I grade this game good rather than an excellent game. I like to believe I have high standards. The screaming bitches who try to piggyback ride you are pretty annoying. The gun goes off at times when you don't expect it. The puzzles and side quests are the meat of the game. Good for a one or two time play and time to pass it onto your fellow gamers. I can only speak for myself. Hopefully this franchise will only keep getting better with the next installment which there are trailers for.

Excellent quality and fast shipping for a low price¡¡¡
I bought this product because all the family members like to play video games, specially the good ones as Silent Hill. I ordered the game and I received it very fast. The product has two main characteristics: low price and excellente quality. So far, we continue playing Silent Hill without any problems. It runs perfectly. Maybe other similar products has the same quality but not the same price. Try it¡¡¡

Best Silent Hill game yet!
Best Silent Hill game yet! One of my best overall games yet! This game is fun, and will scare you. Turn the lights off, turn the surround sound up. If you had 3D TV, even better. Must buy game!!!
