I'm still iffy on buying this. I would absolutely love to play silent hill for the first time in my life, but my backlog is way too long because of crhistmas. Anyone vouch for this game or series and offer any comparisons?

Well, the series as a whole is ridiculously good...with SH2 and SH3 being real standouts. SH2 and SH4 are backward compatible on the 360, so those are definitely worth picking up cheap (SH3 was only available on the PS2). I haven't played Homecoming yet, but from what I've read, it's supposed to be a bit of a step backward for the series.

I know they let an American studio develop the game for the first time, and that may have been a mistake. But really, it's hard for any series to keep its identity when it's being handed off to a new studio. I will definitely play this game at some point because I love the SH games and the whole "alternate world" idea. But I'm in no hurry and will probably wait till this thing drops below $20.

Its not that hard on the normal difficulty and if you get the right ending and save your game afterwards you'll unlock a laser pistol that you can use off the bat on a hard play through (which makes getting the achievement for beating the game on hard easier than the first play through).

Is this for the game new or used? I was totally ready to buy this at 60 earlier in the year so this would be a sweet deal if new

Thanks...will wait for it to go under the $20.00 mark. Just finished Silent Hill for about the 5th or 6th time for the PS1...great game.

This game starts slow/boring, but gets really intense after that. It does get pretty hard though. The surround sound is amazing, and makes it worth $60.

whoah whoah...a bit of a step backwards for the series? whoever said that did not play silent hill 4(and that was by the original japanese team silent). homecoming is flawed, but it's severely underrated. if you're a fan of silent hill in the least bit, you will enjoy homecoming. especially at that price.

Amazing!! I've been tracking this game since it's release, the lowest price drop I've spotted was $40 at one point.

This price is worth it. I'd pay $29.99 MAX.

I bought this in the month it came out for $35 shipped from Live cashback. At $35, I do regret that price, though.

This game is made by the people who made Sudeki (uh-oh) and Silent Hill Origins (PSP).

This is a decent game. It doesn't have the same feel that the previous games did, but it's still worth playing. It's fairly challenging on hard, not really that bad on normal.

I don't know, I've never been a Silent Hill fan... played the first one on PS... never touched the series again.

Would you say this is a good place to start?

I have this game and haven't really had a chance to play a whole lot of it yet. One of the main problems I've heard of though is that it's actually too easy to get the UFO ending (which is essentially a joke ending) on your first play through. On previous games, I think you could only get the UFO ending during a second+ playthrough.

For what I've played so far, the combat, movement, and controls are argueably better than the previous games, but most diehards will tell you that the new controls take away some of the suspense. I think the game is still pretty suspenseful, and the cutscenes still feel right at home with the series. The sound/music is still by Akira Yamaoka (the composer on the previous games), so that's also still top notch.

I would get a copy of Silent Hill 2, easily the pinnacle of the series.

Upon completing the game I found no option to turn off the noise effect? I wonder why they removed this...

There are 3 factors that lead to each of the 6 (I think 6 anyway) endings. It has to do with the decisions you make when confronted by your parents when you get through a good chunk of the game, and also there is a guy that you can save or not save which. Its really easy to get all endings on 1 play through if you save before each of these parts so you can go back. Well not really 1 play through but you get the idea.

Stupid question alert. What does OP mean? "Original poster" or something like that?

Just a little out of range for me. Not in a hurry to play this, but would pick it up at sub $20.
