I have been a Silent Hill fan since I came across Silent Hill 2 : Restless Dreams for the original X-box. Since then, I have been fascinated with the atmosphere and back story related to the Silent Hill franchise. I own the comics, the games, and I've spent a lot of time reading into the underlying meanings implemented into the games. I'm only about a 1/3rd through Downpour, and I can honestly say I really have yet to be impressed. It's not bad, but it's not particularly good. The enemies feel cheap and easy to avoid (and are usually fairly non-threatening because you can simply walk/run away)and so far the game lacks any real moments of uncertainty or fear. The mechanics lean more to the clunky side than to the intuitive, but not to the point that it makes the game un-enjoyable. The story is mostly cannon (specifically if you've read the comic Past Life) although Murphy seems to be the most disconnected, and most undeserving victim, to stroll into the Silent Hill series. The combat is a mix between Silent Hill Homecoming and Origins, although the targeting is a little off. You'll often find yourself attempting to attack an enemy and have Murphy take a wild swing no where near your target. Your objective/destination are also not very clear, leaving the player to explore and stumble around looking for something to help the progression of the story. While this doesn't happen often, it is very frustrating when it does. All in all, so far, I am really enjoying the game, but that is mostly due to the fact that I love Silent Hill as a series, and any additional story to blend into it's already impressive history and mythos. A must for any die hard Silent Hill fan, but should be avoided by anyone who is new to the series.

I really liked the introduction of side missions and the "almost open world" Silent Hill city in this franchise. Those were great additions, but done on a small scale. The combat system is poor, but it should feel awkward to fight in a Silent Hill game because the characters we play are not cops or soldiers. They're ordinary people. The game is designed to make us want to run away instead of starting a fight to the death with a weird looking monster like any sane or normal person would do in this situation. Although, I wasn't impressed with the monsters. They could've been creepier.

We're never gonna play another "real" Silent Hill or Resident Evil again. The video game industry has changed and the people who made those games are doing other things. Expecting the same from different people is pointless. People who have never played a Silent Hill game could very well enjoy this one and people who have can too if they let go of the past (for a while) like I did. I treated Downpour as a survival horror game instead of a Silent Hill game and I was able to enjoy it for what it is and also for what it could've been.

I have purchased many items from this particular company and always have prompt delivery and quality product.
This particular game is only enjoyable if you have enjoyed the series past games. If you have never played a Silent Hill game do not start with this one. The game does have it problem but they can be easily overlooked if you enjoy the series itself.

I've played this game for about two hours, and I can honestly tell that this game isn't Silent Hill.
It's a new experience with the Silent Hill name slapped on, which unless you wanted that "run in and gun down all the monsters" feel like the older Silent Hill games (which this isn't), then this game is good for what it is.

I would recommend putting off buying this game for about a month or two until Vetra/Konami starts to release some patches, because this game is pretty much broken out of the box. The save system is stupid. When it says that it's saving, it's only saving stats. It saves without telling you, so make sure you walk through a door to a new area or wait until after a cutscene to quit the game.
Another thing that's broken is the survival horror experience, because the game tends to freeze and glitch up while you're playing. It has plenty of framerate issues just like the "Silent Hill HD Collection". Something you would expect from a game like Grand Theft Auto IV or Saints Row The Third, because they're other open-world games. It's a poor excuse because the only time those games drop in frames is if alot is going on like rockets being shot and cars blowing up, etc. This game's issues are noticeable in the first cutscene. When there's monsters on the screen (say two or three), that's when the game glitches up the most. It's even worse than those two games I listed when rockets and cars are blowing up all on screen for simply just walking down the road. For a game that downgrades all textures around you when you simply look at the map (playing at full 720P), it seems to lag ALOT. If you don't believe me, check out some videos on YouTube of other people playing (NOT the developers).
