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.

I heard about that ban... That sucks since it is the only Xbox-360 SH game atm

Though, in my opinion, Homecoming was the worst Silent Hill game to be released. It was basically a copy of the recently released movie, all ideas coming from that and the first game, little originality. Also, there seemed to be too much emphasis on combat, which is not what Silent Hill normally has... I personally never finished it, it seemed to be a mockery to one of my favorite game series.

Oh and don't get me wrong, I am not one of those "only the first 2-3 games were good" I loved every game released (except maybe Origins) its just that Homecoming doesn't come close to the others.

Thumbs up

I thought it was really good. I liked the messed up creatures and really like the story / backstory of all the stuff going on. While it wasn't perfect, it certainly doesn't deserve all the hate I've seen it get. Worth buying in my opinion.

I think it could have been a lot better, especially because it had taken a lot of the visuals and ideas from the first film. I actually had a lot of trouble playing it at first, because I had no idea what the combat system was like, and the fact that there was no way to change the controls to be inverted, other than in aiming, which was troublesome.

The story itself seems sub par compared to the other games, but considering it wasn't made by the same people as, say, Silent Hill 2, it was actually still creepy and did have SH-esque goodness.

The boss designs were actually the best part, I think. I remember being so creeped out by Scarlet even though I'd seen gifs and such of her and the other bosses months before I'd even thought about picking it up for myself.

I'd say 6/10. It was good, but not great.

I think this game is great plenty of good scares and the differet endings make playing through the game that much more enjoyable

Homecoming was the first Silent Hill I played. I also tried 2, 3 and Downpour. I like Homecoming the most.

I didn't find the combat part really troublesome; instead I considered it challenging. On Youtube I saw a player who could deal with 3 Schisms at one time and almost took no damage in the entire fight. The combat part isn't broken; it just demands more patience and skills.
