How sad... I think they did a brilliant Job with Silent Hill and was hoping they'd do the next one :(

I wouldn't mind some dlc for it, it sure could boost their bank account.

It wasn't a terrible game- but it wasn't scary (the creature designs were really, really lazy too). It also seemed to concentrate too much on fighting which got really dull. It's a shame because at times it was really atmospheric- worse still, this turn of events will prevent other companies from releasing proper horror games. Imagine if Silent Hill went the way of Resi Evil with demons with machine guns and cover shooting as the town started blowing up for no reason. (shudder)
But i digress, good luck to those at Vatra.

I agree that Downpour has been the best release since SH4 and came closer to capturing what i love about SH but it still fell short in design and story, it seems since SH4 any developer who tries to make a SH game either disappears or shuts down.
There he goes. One of God's own prototypes. A high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.
