I loved this game and especially if your a survival horror fan, you will too. Worth the buy, play it just for fun sometimes. Story is great, graphics good. Only bad thing is freezing at some cut scenes if you try to skip.

9/10 in my opinion.

its really good game I enjoyed my playthrough, and I still have to beat it one more time and pick up the last 300 points. I followed guide to make it easier though, it would have taken me at least double the amount of play time if I tried to figure everything out myself

i just got the opportunity to rent this game this evening, and started playing it. within the first 20-30 minutes of playing, i admit i had to shut it off else i was going to be spending my night playing it instead of sleeping. working early in the morning is LAME. but, suffice to say, i love it. very twisted and morbid to start, and in all honesty, the first location reminded me of an abandoned hospital that some friends and i explored one evening. i look forward to playing it more.

Use a guide wherever you can. Trust me, it will help A LOT.

I have 1000/1000 for this game, took me 5 days where I played a little each day.

I love survival horrors, and Silent Hill 1, 2, 3, and 4 were no exception. However, just once look at this pile of crap makes me go into nerd rage! I hate it to much- I find to bland, boring, non-scary, and a trashy story. I also noticed there were many glitches in the battle system. I'd rate this game a 3/10, and that's being generous. Sorry if it seems like I'm "bitching" but it just annoys me how they have ruined a great series.

Brill game but i kinda miss the part where the character itself sucked balls and couldn't turn as it made the game more challenging and also the puzzles weren't that hard tbh

Brutal game...I think its really boring,graphics are poor,and the music is annoying,all the environments are kinda the same,and the story is pretty lame,but the worst thing is that there is no invert controls....WHAT.......yes after 2 years they still have not fixed/patched this simple mistake!DOH!
This is the reason i got rid of this game 2 years ago,i picked it up for a few bucks kinda thought the controls would be fixed but i guess not.

Im grinding through it just to get 1000 then its getting traded in for a bag of potatoes or whtever!

Because of how Americanized the horror elements are in this game compared to other Silent Hill games, I'd say it's a bad Silent Hill game, but not a bad overall game. I still had fun playing it, but instead of being like "oh SHIT I think there's a so-and-so here...", it was like "oh look, a so-and-so, meh".

This was only my second foray into Silent Hill so my frame of reference was a bit limited.
Which didn't really matter as the game stands on it's own merits imho. The atmosphere is just as screwed up and grisly as you'd expect and the game reiterates my favorite part of horror games: Your not invincible. Guns are utterly ineffectual on the first playthrough and you have to out maneuver and hold off the tougher enemies to stay alive. You truly fear encounters with larger groups of enemies and rightfully so.
However in a more practical sense the controls can be quite cumbersome (dodging is going to test your patience) and some questionable game design (backtracking; in this day and age >_>) mar a pretty solid game. Just don't go in expecting SH2 and your in for a eerie 2 - 3 day romp with some bog standard cheevos, collectibles aside.

If you've really played SH2, then you should consider the backtracking in this game a treat considering what you had to go through in that game.

I thought this game was great, graphics could have been better but the storyline and gameplay where good IMO.

Finishing all the endings now for the 1000g, after that i'll probs never play it again but it was enjoyable to play.

I thought it was great - the second SH was my favourite but I thought that Homecoming managed to capture back a little bit of the twisted protagonist element that SH2 had. Alex is pretty unbalanced.

I played the game through and got 1000GS, and then played it through a couple more times to get my boyfriend the full 1000GS (he found the controls annoying and just didn't want to keep repeating the same bits). I would play it again if there was any point, but replayability is a bit limited. That said, I did already play it around 7 times. =/ Lol. I found it really enjoyable.

People complain about the controls, but if you've played other SH games, it won't be a surprise (in fact I think Alex is easier to control than James or Heather).

Great game, I don't know how everyone complains of "problems" I never really got stuck, it's all about getting the dodging down.

i am a great fan of the silent hill games, but homecoming i found quite boring and not as scary, its like they just had no more ideas anymore. I played it halfway then got bored. I dunno maybe i shall rent it again and try and play all the way. But this one just seems like a failure for silent hill, sorry to the fans of this game, but this is my thought on it

Personally i've always been a massive fan of the silent hill games.....up til i hit 'The room'.....which disgusted me with shocking gameplay.....but i really liked this one, played it through over and over just for the achievements Wish they would bring some DLC for this

I Thought this game was Good, builds up A Steady Storyline, Classic enemies Which Are Always Fun To Kill, Not a game like resident evil Where You Take On 100 Enemies At Once Easily, i Love The Puzzle Element Of The game And Did Enjoy Completeing This game A Few Times, the Only thing I Found Annoying Is The Achievements For All The Endings Lil Long To Do, Obviously Its Easy When you Save It And Reload It But Still A Great game Very Eerie Atmosphere Thoughly Enjoyed.

Wasn't a fan of it.

It was an okay game, but not a good Silent Hill game if you get my drift.

Massive Silent Hill fan, and I felt that these new developers really "Americanized" the feel of the game.

I never played a Silent Hill game before it. At the time, I was only interested in the game because it was banned in Australia, so I imported it from the U.K. and enjoyed the experience.

it was good on the first playthrough and such..couldnt get into it as much as the other games. It really wasnt a "silent hill" game anyway...made by different people then the original 4. It was good...but not great. I didnt like how they pushed some elements of the movie into the game...as the movie was good but not the best "movie based on game". Pyramid Head should not even have been there...and i did not like any of the endings. Not picking on the game just pointing out things i didnt like. The game was way to linear...just go this way..keep going..cutscene...keep going..blah blah. The other games had exploration and backtracking with very challenging puzzles. This game had close to no puzzles (challenging at that) and most where just trial and error...just seemed very..idk..just felt like it was lacking the traditional silent hill "feel"... beginning was good but after the sepulcher fight it just started going downhill for me :/ PS: The Scarlet boss fight was probably the best part of the game.

I personnaly could'nt get into this, I played silent hill 1,2,3,and origins...and loved them all, but I got a third of the way and sacked it! It's juat that the fighting system has no justice and you have to rely on the dodgeing system, interesting story, but the gameplay is not there

I was very disappointed, I found the combat cumbersome and difficult to get used to. Still, it's worth a playthrough if you're a fan. Nothing will ever be as bad as Alone in the Dark... So give it a go.
