Default The Silent Hill series?

Anybody from the lab a fan of Silent Hill?

I own / love the entire series, but cannot complete Homecoming on the Xbox 360. I tried to just get a game save, but that proved to be awkward.

Anyway, I hear Downpour has been delayed in Europe until possibly March. While this is annoying to impatient people, I think it'll gimme a chance to get those other top games that are due out this fall.

aye, mate still wants to play the 1st because i raved about it that much at the time. 2nd is easily one of THE games of all time. 3rd i felt tried too hard, 4th a silly and difficult mess....havent played one since due to not having the machines, but one of these days.....

i take it we all agree that the film was shit apart from pyramid head then??

I used to be a big fan of Silent Hill, cleared the first two umpteen times to get all the different endings and what not, but never managed to complete the third! I got to the last boss, but had no ammo at all, so I lost interest and never picked it up again!

The Room was an interesting idea, but poorly executed to be honest. I can't get on with Homecoming because you CAN'T INVERT THE CONTROLS, which is cocking ridiculous.

I'm looking forward to the HD reissue of 2/3 on the PS3/360, so maybe I'll finally complete 3 then.

I am a huge fan of these games and have completed them all. Shattered Memories on wii I thought was better than homecoming. It used such great ideas like using the wii remote as a flash light and phone. The second part worked great as the remote rang, you answer it with A and then hold the speaker to you ear to hear a static noise before a ghost. amazing and scary. Like Baseball I look forward to the HD verisons but think they could have easily included Silent Hill 4

Love these games, at the minute the only ones I own are Homecoming for Xbox 360 and the excellent Origins for PSP. Film isn't too bad either

Oh yeah I forgot origins. That game is awesome with headphones in. very scary. looking forward to downpour but having doubts. Want a silent hill where you can explore the town more. Homecoming was limited in that respect.
