Silent Hill: Downpour is a 2012 survival horror video game developed by Vatra Games and published by Konami Digital Entertainment. The eighth installment in the Silent Hill video game series launched on the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360.

Why it sucks

  1. Boring and repetitive combat.
  2. Bad camera.
  3. Lame plot.
  4. Uninteresting characters.
  5. The game focuses more on action and combat rather than survival and exploration, although not as much as in Homecoming.
  6. Many bugs and glitches.
  7. It is very short.
  8. Many sidequests add a lot of replay value, but become tedious, repetitive and feel out of place in the Silent Hill universe.
  9. Tedious exploration which requires a lot of backtracking.
  10. The game is a little too linear.
  11. While there are several choices throughout the game, many of them have no effect on the story whatsoever.

Redeeming qualities

  1. Very good and detailed graphics.
  2. Stellar soundtrack, even though it was not composed by longtime series composer Akira Yamaoka.
  3. In can be played in 3D.
  4. Good and original monster designs, whose presence can be warned when it starts raining.
  5. It brought back separate Combat and Puzzle difficulties, a classic series feature that had been absent since Silent Hill 4: The Room.
