Silent Hill Origins

The chills are handheld-sized, but no less horrifying

ilent Hill has always been scary because of what it doesn't show you. It's the little things that get to you the most; weeping ghosts, implacable thuds, grinding machinery, that sort of thing. And while Origins is an admirable attempt by a Western developer to capture the magic of the Japanese-developed originals, it doesn't quite manage it. But that doesn't mean it's not worth your time.... read more

I think this is a different team to Silent Hill 5. This is from a UK dev and SH5 is from a US one.
I'm only about an hour into this but I'm enjoying it so far.
Konami are still struggling to top SH2 as far as I'm concerned.

For some reason they followed up the second game by trying to make the Silent Hill series more action focussed. Silent Hill 3 was just wandering aimlessly round endless mazes then dealing with clunky combat.
The strange thing is that when I think back number two should have been a terrible game...but its story, pacing and atmosphere made for an excellent experience. I certainly think they could improve on it though.
My bet is five will have the best combat, graphics, character movement, boss battles and controls of the series. Yet somehow will lack everything that made the SH games so compelling.
