Quoted from Silent Hill: Homecoming Reviews:
Check out these quotes from Silent Hill: Homecoming reviews & previews
"Double Helix did a fantastic job of adding to the Silent Hill universe with Homecoming. It's quite obvious that the team behind this title are fellow fans of the series. We expected the worst, but in the end, we were pleasantly surprised by the authenticity of the game's world and the depth of its story. We're glad to say that the little lakeside resort town of Silent Hill continues to be just as messed up as it always was."
"What continues to hold Homecoming back from beginning to end is its horribly uneven pacing. Long stretches of downtime obviously intended to build tension just feel dull and drawn out, while the non-stop barrage of combat in other sections becoming tedious. It never hits its stride, never find that sweet spot that makes for that great edge-of-your-seat survival horror experience. Silent Hill fans will find enough here in the lore and the art direction to keep them going through the rough spots, but Homecoming is going to be a tough sell for anyone else."
"Homecoming doesn't recapture the essence of the Konami-developed games. The action-oriented approach leaves players with an awkward camera and less impressive plot, but the game is still enjoyable in its own way."
"Double Helix has delivered a strong, generically sound game in Silent Hill: Homecoming, one which maintains basic survival horror precepts while propelling the genre as a whole forward into the current generation of gaming. If this is the new face of the Silent Hill series, we anticipate many more horrific nightmares to come. "
