Images of Silent Hill

Images of Silent Hill

Developer The Collective has some things to be ashamed of : after an unconvincing showing of their Silent Hill: Homecoming with some images that were not really inspiring, the company is back at it with some small shots. Yes, it looks good, but at this resolution, almost every production does. Who are they kidding?
Update: added 6 HD images from the PS3 build


The game, even in high definition, does not seem that good. However, after reading some written impressions from various game journalists, I still have hope this will turn out good.

Well to be honest... after watching some videos they recently posted at Gametrailers (in HD; Im sure you´ll have them here soon too ^^) and watching the game in movement I must say that it looks waaaay better than I expected after the terrible shots that they recently showed.

The atmosphere I got from those videos is A LOT better than the non-fear one I get from Alone in the Dark trailers. Imho I think I´ll end up picking this one over Alone in the Dark... and I never thought I would be saying that a month ago!

these screens look better than previous ones, but if it's the same team that developed origins (is it? Maybe it's not?) it will suck donkey balls any ways.

Okay so maybe it won't suck then...but i doubt it will be on par with SH2 or even 3.

as long as its better then 4 then i'll be buying it. because while i enjoyed 4 it was definately the weakest of the series.

Go to Gametrailer and look at the new vids they have up, espcially the one with the demon dogs, this to me is what RE5 should have been like.

Part 4 sucked ass because of it's stupid game design. I feel i have to write why so here are a couple of points that drag "the room" down from it's potential awesomeness to a pretty bad game.

*Limited inventory. It just felt stupid. And the breakable weapons and so forth. No i did not like that.

*Ghosts. They are supposed to make you shit your pants i suppose and sure, they totally stressed me out. But all in all they were just annoying and deducted form the overall experience. Why couldn't you kill them!? Also, carrying those goddamn swords around. Fucking stupid.

*Backtracking. God i hate games where 50% is recycled levels *cough*DMC4*cough*. Seriosuly, going through all the levels AGAIN was just a royal pain. Part of SH is exploring but how much fun is it exploring the same goddamn rooms twice?

*HUD and no flashlight. How much didn't the freaking hp bar kill the mood? And the game is way too light. Part of the scaryness in SH comes from the claustrophobic darkness that is always closing in around you, and your only breather in between is the fogy daylight areas that are just long enough that you can catch your breath.

The story and setup for SH the room was great and the graphics are just awesome, not to mention the music and sound effects. So to me the game could have been super sweet, but the totally botched it.

The room is totally worth playing through once though. It took me like 3 years to do it but at the end i enjoyed the story :P

I'm super impressed, from looking at the Gametrailers footage. The knife even gives blood decals on nurse's body! Extremely atmospheric, this definitely sealed the deal. Man, 3 survival horror games in a year, and all of them potentially great: Alone in the Dark 5, Silent Hill V, and Condemned 2.

Maybe Resident Evil 5

The lack the series' standard noise filter disturbs me

Not hilarious to me, since you can in all RPGs, and in Fatal Frame too.

Well then, I guess that means killing ghosts is a fairly common practice.

Why's that?
Because its my opinon ?

I hated the way they changed RE4 to over the shoulder, plus removed the undead horrorness of it, looks like RE5 will follow it those footsteps.

Saw the vids... nice graphics but the character's design and emotions are stupidly awful and the game has some horrible glitches and frame-rate issues !!
Hope they fix it.. otherwise the game still looks Silent Hillish :P

you're not killing them, you're sealing them away =P just being picky lol, ghosts in rpg's is very differentand usually cant hurt them with physical weapons anyway.
Commented on 2008-05-16 04:43:35
I just thought it was funny how surprised/appalled he was...as if killing ghosts is just something that is so commonplace that not being able to kill them is a huge fault.

That's only Jade Empire dude. In Final Fantasy X, you send them back to the spirit realm (which is in essence killing the undead or making the undead, dead).

I know it is, and that is why I asked of your opinion. I'm always curious about what other people think. Thank you for sharing it here...

I have another question for you. You can feel free to answer it if you want to or not(anyone else here can as well), but I'll ask anyway...

What defines a "horror game" in your honest opinion? What I mean by that is what should it contain, how should it play, etc.
Commented on 2008-05-16 07:14:39
Oh yeah, Look it's better for texture^_^ and I didn't like a broken weapons system because i'm lazy to search it:P .but graphic it's look great. I'm played SILENT HILL : ORIGIN before, i guess it's same to the system.
Commented on 2008-05-16 09:27:12
Sorry Konami I am disappointed......what's going on?
Where is the quality of the last years? What are this please for textures?
There looks "Alone in the Dark" around lengths better!
Look at the first picture (XBOX360) it's more sharp smaller, however, than the lower.
