If you’re wondering why I haven’t even mentioned the story, I simply don’t want to ruin it for you. Silent Hill games have a rich mythology that must be experienced by players, and this game, while not bringing anything new or original, adds to the tapestry that came before it. The issues present in the game don’t ruin the experience, and finishing the game with a good ending (there are 5 possible) is very satisfying. On replay, there are moments you’ll be slapping your forehead at for not catching the first time through, but unless you’re trying to get one of the other endings, there’s not much else there. At the end of the day, Silent Hill: Homecoming may not be a great game, but it’s certainly enjoyable. For fans of the series, or just survival horror in general, this game certainly warrants a playthrough… after the crowded holiday season is over.
