Images of Silent Hill

Konami recently announced that the new Silent Hill game will go under the name Silent Hill: Homecoming, and that it will be released at the end of September in Europe. Here is a couple of not so impressive images from the game itself.

Looks horrible... umm I mean looks bad graphically. Looks almost worse than PS2 games? Okay not that bad but still...

this game and gta4 show me really that they really have problems to find or create a good engine for this consoles.

Looks like a new PC title running at 640 x 480 on a huge monitor with every single graphical effect turned off.

I wanted to believe they've been using placeholder textures all this time, but seeing as the game's only months away it looks like the Japanese engineers are indeed superior to the American ones. Should I even be surprised?

All that said, I'm still looking forward to this game. It's Silent Hill, and Yamaoka's involved as usual. And they didn't drop the "5" because it doesn't look as good as the last ones. It has to do with marketing. They're obviously trying to expand the series.

really really bad, i loved SH up till number 4, which was so awful, and this follows the trend, no one they dropped the 5 from the name

I don't know about saying 'looks like PS2 quality', but the texture resolution is dreadful!
Commented on 2008-04-25 14:52:55
Well, this is what happens when Konami dont develope the game. This looks kind of... poor.

Too bad they didn't want to make the game themself, it would surely kick ass.

And, since they removed the number "5" from the title, it feels liek Konami dont even trust this project...

Perhaps Konami insisted that '5' was dropped from the title as they aren't impressed with it? Two or three years down the line they (Team Silent) could then release the real Silent Hill 5 and dismiss this monstrosity as merely 'an embarrasing side story to the Silent Hill universe'.

Resident Evil 4 looks better then that

for the people that are complaining about the graphics, don't forget Silent Hill have heavy effects filters applied to them. So if the lighting & animation is perfect, you won't even notice the bland textures.

here's a mockup how the final game can look like:

This game HAS to score in terms of story and gameplay, because the screenshots don't scream "buy me!"

The faces look worse than a PS2 game (Silent Hill 3)!

It looks like EA-style PS2 bullshots is what it looks like. The texture resolution is actually worse than the Silent Hill games on the PS2 for Pete's sake!

Is that supposed to be an insult? RE4 looks pretty beautiful
Commented on 2008-04-25 16:04:15
OMG! This looks so bad! like SH origins on PSP! Even SH2 from PS2 looks better!
Commented on 2008-04-25 16:10:22
Wow. The later PS2 incarnations looked better than this.
Looks like Alone in the Dark will take Silent Hill's place for erry survival horror game of the year...

Yeah that doesn't look too hot, i'll still get it since iam a huge fan of silent hill but i was kind of hoping that they would utilize the power of the next gen hardware a bit more

it looks like the Japanese engineers are indeed superior to the American ones. Should I even be surprised?
Oh for fucks sake synce.......

Even though these graphics look like crap, I still feel Silent Hill V will be a much better game than Alone in the Dark. Graphics and technology don't make or break a game.

It looks almost identical to Silent Hill 2 on the PS2.
Commented on 2008-04-25 17:52:11
I still think SH3 is the best looking of ALL the SH games, including this one so far. But remember they do have almost half a year before release, you never know, things could improve. I remember Dead Rising had some pretty massive changes in graphics leading up to its release.
Commented on 2008-04-25 17:58:12
game really does look like a ps2 game. i dont usually agree with those statements since, well, have you actually seen a ps2 game recently, but that really does. there is nothing in those shots thats hasnt been seen in ps2 games. reflective water, dynamic shadows where in SH2, if those are 360/ps3 shots then it genuinely looks terrible.
