I think other than 1-4 it's the best one. Nobody could make a game like the originals, ever. Silent Hills would have been pretty damn close, I bet. but out of homecoming, origins, shattered memories, and downpour, homecoming is the best one imo.
>>323964851 PC port was pretty bad I tried changing the resolution and the screen went black. I had to go through the files to reset the resolution which is annoying to do for a game I bought with money
Liked it enough to finish it to completion. First silent hill game I've ever played and completed. Now I'm playing Silent Hill 1 on a PS1 Emulator and holy shit the soundtrack and atmosphere is fantastic.
>>323964641 because it shows that developers only played SH2 and didnt understood main themes and motives in SH18.104.22.168
Its copy worst of the worst horror movie examples ever... : Saw, Hostel and Silent Hill the movie. with plot from silent hill 2
Is gameplay ok? I guess... Can you like it? sure you can. Its awarage game at best. But as a silent hill game its completely horible and it shits on previous one.
Its also painful that this one has biggest budget and was missed opportunity to revive SH series and make it relevant again.
Every single western developed game is ripoff of silent hill 2. Origins, Homecoming, SHSM, Downpour. Its a same fucking story about facing your sins and sentient town who is a therapist to the main protagonists.
Its unbelievable how much they dint care about original team and legacy.
> Thank you Tom Hulet and i hope you die you piece of shit
>>323969083 Just that introduction alone is one of my favorite moments in games.
But like >>323969380 said, 3 is a direct sequel to 1 and brings back a lot of the flavor in terms of atmosphere and color back. But if the story itself of 1 isn't something you dig, I'd go straight to 2 first.
Shattered Memories I'd say is very much worth looking into, particularly if you end up liking 2. You get to be Harry again, but it is a completely different kind of story.
>>323969380 >>323970546 Thanks guys. I'm at the Balkan Church and just received the Flauros. Figured I would go in order actually (1, 2, and 3. Maybe 4 when I get the chance) Though seriously why did I wait to play this game?
>>323969182 >>323971005 People don't like to remember that Tom Hullet is one man and that making games can be really complicated, especially with giant teams and multinational corporations involved. Pointing fingers at just one man makes things simple and convenient, more so than in real life, so we can accept it and sort it out in our heads.
He honestly seems like the kind of dude I'd be perfectly cool with having some beers with.
>>323971979 Tom Hulet is A LIER... every single thing he sad was a lie to promote his SH2 clones....
He managed to be executive producer one of the writers and director on 4 SH2 clones that are each bad in its own way...but no. that wasnt enough.. he then went and destroy originals with HD collection. He is at least incompetent. and a Liar... who didnt even liked originals
>>323972689 yes konami but again... what if series went to some talented and passionate sh nerds? Someone who can talk without stuttering (unlike Tom Hulet who cant even make a sentence)? Some one who at least liked series in a first place....
not some random iliterate psycho who considered himself walking talking Sh bible....
>>323973135 he was involved in Homecoming .. he "unfuck story" with his great writing skills he made it a SH2 clone. In origins he was adviser to great writer Sam Barlow who didnt even understood Sh1 story and to William Ortel another genius. Also Sh2 clone
You are mentioning Arcade game where people shoot sh creatures from entire series? wtf .. entire game is a fan service......
HM is one of those games that could have just been its own game, inspired by Silent Hill. It had its moments, but fell ultimately flat on its face with it rehashing SH2 and making the cult so obvious and violent in their methods. It was a decent effort for trying to make a spin-off at the very least.
Konami is really scummy in general, especially how they treated the original Team Silent members. One of the guy's on the original team had to go through hell and back just to get his name on the game's credits, because some upper asshole in a suit wanted him to work but without getting any credit.
Basicly suffers from a lot of the problems that every SH after 2 has:
>Tries to be SH2 >The plot twist at the end is obvious >The choice system is garbage, it's literally Press [X] for good ending Press [O] for bad ending >Give you the ability to fight anything so the sense of danger is reduced by a lot because i know my character can take on anything i see >Little to no symbolism, either it's something extremely vague or it is right on your face >The character is there mainly because he is an idiot, there is you can't feel sympathetic for this asshole >Side characters are useless
You can tell how ''westernized'' this game is by looking at the weapons, the quick time events and the inventory system. They need to remember you are there for the narrative and the atmosphere with that high dose of symbolism SH has allways been good at. It's supposed to be an ''experience'' rather than a game
>>323974834 Agreed, and i really hate that he knows how to fight his way, it removes some of the horror aspect if you have a guy who can take on stuff
Well, that might be a symptom of advertising or previews of the game getting the wrong idea and making people think something that wasn't actually the case. I remember reading that, too, in a magazine, not in the game itself. Alex thinks he was in the military, though, so maybe he's just smart enough to know how to use a gun and hit stuff with an axe, lol.
>>323975140 Oh sorry, didn't mean SH4, but SH3 suffers the same problem where you can shoot and fight anything you want, besides you can guess who Heather is in the first 10 minutes of the game, i really don't like how good you can defend yourself in that game
SH4 made monumentaly bad gameplay choices, especially having you coming back to the room and basicly replaying the game on the 2nd half, but goddamn, the symbolism and the story on that game were god tier for me
>monsters have no thematic function or subtlety, just popping up and attacking the town like space aliens >forced combat all over the place >no unique direction, just rehashing stuff from other games and the movie >protagonist's abilities make no fucking sense in the context of the plot >retarded concept of moral choices >Order reduced to Hostel rednecks
>>323975280 he is introducing himself as being back from military and war....
>>323975327 music is ok boss designs are ok at best otherworld is greyorange world... nothing else
>>323975431 yes but it wasnt a TWIST you were suposed to make that conection when you first open inventory ...if you played sh1 and have a working brain.... actyally Sh3 is lot more difficult then sh2....it has more confined space combat with malee weapons vs ranged enemie, On hard mode this game is THE BEST Survival horror game. YOu just need to not pick that mashine gun with unlimited amno.
Sh4 backtracking and room as a hub was not that bad...story and symbolism god tier i agree.
>>323964641 I loved it. It had some dumb moments and was the love-child of SH2 and the SH movie. For everything did it wrong though I think it did just as much right. Overall I think it was just overly ambitious and tried to appeal too much without realizing how niche the SH games are.
I don't understand the complaint that his fighting ability conflicts with the character. They just polished up the fighting style. You don't have to be a green beret to get out of the way when something tries to kill you , nor do you have to be an army ranger to hit something with a pipe.
