Quotes

[Travis unexpectedly encounters Lisa again in the Artaud Theatre]
Travis Grady: What are you doing in here, Lisa?
Lisa Garland: Sorry if I scared you. I thought I was the only one in here.
Travis Grady: It's dangerous.
Lisa Garland: Dangerous? You're kidding! The door was open, so I let myself in. I just love the theater, Travis. I want to be an actress. But mom was a nurse, and her mom was a nurse... So I'm going to be a nurse. I've got what it takes though.

A nice S.H sequel (or prequel!)
23 December 2008 | by angie2911See all my reviews

So.. Sequel or Prequel... hmmmn. Origins takes us on a journey in the life of Travis, your average all-American, friendly truck driving guy. He's a loner (awww) and is happiest alone driving his truck. He tends not to forge relationships and he prefers to leave his encounters in his rear view mirror. Until he stumbles upon a house ablaze in a sleepy little town called Silent Hill.....

This is, actually, quite a good game in the S.H series, (better than Homecoming in my opinion) but it still lacks a certain something. It's not up to the standard of S.H 2, 3 or 4 (the room) in terms of complexity, darkness, oppressive fear, subtle creepiness and plot. And the overall time it takes to complete is WAY too short. You do sort of get the impression this one didn't take too long to develop in comparison to the former titles. However, it still has the foundations of a great horror RPG with a dark dense atmosphere, nice graphics and game-play. Along with the typical scares, puzzles and nasty creatures to defeat which are all synonymous with Silent Hill. The extra addition of improved combat whilst fighting enemies is also a nice new feature. Overall a 7 out of 10 (for me). I did enjoy it, but it is nowhere near as good as the earlier titles (but better than Homecoming). Whether the like of S.H 1, 2 and 3 can be recreated in this age, remains to be seen, and is doubtful. But I'd still recommend it if you are a S.H fan, and if you're not, you'll still enjoy the back seat ride! On a side note-- I purchased one and played it (and it had a couple of VERY annoying glitches). however, I purchased another very recently, and it had none?
