Silent Hill: Downpour, the eighth title in the series, comes out at an interesting time - after the critical disappointment of Homecoming and the commercial upset of Shattered Memories, Konami's decision to hand the series to another unproven developer is more than enough get the alarm bells ringing. It doesn't come as a big surprise that Downpour can't match the series' former glories, then, but this tale of escaped convict Murphy Pendleton and his almost comedic trek into Silent Hill (his prison transport van crashes because the driver gets distracted for a couple of seconds) knows how to conjure up a few of its own chills and thrills. Pendleton's initial portrayal isn't one of a Particularly Nice Man, and the game's opening sequence has you brutally savage a naked fat bloke in a prison cell while originally providing no reasonable context - it's also a nice little touch of showing how gamers will do anything provided there's an in-game command to do so. Lamp the funny looking porker with a bit of broken stick! Do iiiiiit!.
Being a Silent Hill fan is a lot like watching Eddie Murphy movies. You keep thinking back and remembering the glory days, while quietly thinking that maybe this next one movie will be the one to restore him to Beverly Hill Cop/48 Hrs. glory (or in Silent Hill's case, the days of Silent Hill 2 and 3). However, time and time again, we are ultimately disappointed among the Norbits, Klumps, and Homecomings. But we keep with it, remembering the good days, and in the case of Silent Hill, recognizing the key strengths of the franchise, and hoping that some capable developer will put the series on top of the survival horror heap where it belongs. Then, Silent Hill Downpour comes along and knocks the series down a few more pegs. Silent Hill: Downpour Video Review Developed by series newcomer Vatra Games, Silent Hill Downpour is a pretty different take on the series. Downpour takes many of the devices familiar to fans of the franchise like Akira Yamaoka's score and many of the familiar landmarks and sights in the town, and replaces them with new previously unexplored sections of Silent Hill, a new hero and more of a focus on action and combat. There are a few connections that the game makes to the previous games in the series, but unfortunately most of what has been added isn't great.
