Get A Good, Dark Look At The Newest Silent Hill

Get A Good, Dark Look At The Newest Silent Hill

The eight major entry in the Silent Hill series will be called Silent Hill: Downpour, a game that looks as dark and dreary as its ever been. This time, however, prepare to be constantly on edge and endlessly moist.

Silent Hill: Downpour stars convict Murphy Pendleton, unlucky enough to be on the run in the haunted town of Silent Hill. The game known formerly as Silent Hill 8 is in the hands of developer Vatra Games, with a score provided by new composer Daniel Licht of Dexter fame.

If you’ve already picked up a copy of Game Informer, the following screens won’t be so new to you. But if you’re not much of a magazine person, all-new Silent Hill: Downpour screens await you.

  • Why do these games always make the guys look like such pansies with wanker hair-styles?
    Theres so many badass actors out there, why don’t they reference someone who is cool.
    e.g.
    Josh Brolin
    Jason Stathem
    Clint Eastwood
    Jack Nicolson
    Michael Bein
    Jeff Bridges

    • I get the feeling that it’s not cool factor they are after. It seems like they want someone you can care about, like Harry Mason.

    • Simon,

      A horror game isn’t meant to make you feel like a musclebound ass-kicking badass that can slaughter the legions of hell whilst having swarms of barely-clad women begging for the privelige of giving you… ahem… oral gratification.

      A horror game is meant to make you feel frightened. Powerless. Alone. Near-defenseless. Weak.

      In brief, if you just want to be badass, go play Gears Of War and wish you were Fenix.

      If, on the other hand, you want to enjoy a disturbing atmosphere that screws with your head and may mentally scar you for life, play a Silent Hill game.
