4.0 out of 5 stars some pretty killer filler April 27, 2008
Platform for Display:PlayStation2
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
When it comes to the Silent Hill franchise, I'm a pretty dedicated fanboy. I could probably dedicate several chapters worth of pages to each and every one of the installments, from the masterpieces to the mediocre. In the name of dignity, however, I'll keep my opinion on Origins, like the game itself, fairly brief. And the brief here is that Origins doesn't quite capture the same charm as any of the straight-to-console releases; it does, however, maintain the trademark feel and standards of the franchise, and it even adds a couple cool new things to the mix, making it a completely worthy addition to what is hands down the best survival horror series around.

Probably the most important challenge facing the developers behind Origins was the necessity to prove to fans that they could harness the very distinct feel created and maintained by Team Silent, the original group, throughout the four previous titles. It couldn't have been an easy task. One of the things that makes these games so successful is the incredible atmosphere. The horror found in Silent Hill is often psychological and always enigmatic, and there's a really deeply disturbing sense of pathos that elevates the terror from strictly visceral to a very emotional level. The original composer was on board, so the famously spooky music and audio effects were there to help bolster the effect, but the rest was up to the new guys. Well, they delivered. Origins feels absolutely genuine; the foggy streets, the shambling, crippled monsters, the radio, the peeling paint and the layers of rust and blood - every motif within the series is reproduced with meticulous care, and it just feels right.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid prequel March 16, 2008
Platform for Display:PlayStation2
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Another PSP to PS2 conversion, Silent Hill Origins is a prequel to Konami's original Silent Hill game, and fans of the long running survival horror series will happy to know that this installment retains the series' penchant for the unbelievably creepy. You play as a trucker named Travis, who has just stumbled into the town of Silent Hill, and naturally, it isn't too long before some very, very, bad things start happening. Fans of the series will see some familiar faces and surroundings, and the game also manages to provide some ultra-creepy environments and events, as well as a spectacular musical score that perfectly underlines the frightening proceedings. The game has been slightly visually enhanced in its transition from the PSP to the PS2, although things still look more grainy then they should. The only downsides to Silent Hill Origins is that the game's camera doesn't always work the way you'd think it would, and the game's length may leave more to be desired. Flaws aside though, Silent Hill Origins is still a scary blast, and there's enough extra content (like different endings) to find and comb through to justify picking it up. If you already played through the PSP version of the game, there really isn't any reason to play it again, but if you didn't and you're a fan of the series or of survival horror in general, take a trip to Silent Hill.

4.0 out of 5 stars Predictable, Yet Worthwhile May 28, 2009
Platform for Display:PlayStation2
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Being a rabid Silent Hill fan, I was somewhat skeptical of Silent Hill Origins, since A) it wasn't handled by Konami, B) it's a PSP entry, and C) prequels are usually a very bad idea. However, once I actually started playing it, I was, if not amazed, then at least pleasantly surprised. I played the PS2 port, and despite some glitches, it worked fine. I can safely say that Origins is a decent addition to the SH series, and if it stays firmly on safe, familiar ground -- well, you don't always need to reinvent the wheel.

I'll discuss the plot first, since it's possibly the weakest part of the game. Our hero is Travis Grady, a trucker with the usual tragic past, who saves a girl from a burning building one dark night on a lonely road. Of course, the girl is (not-really-spoiler alert) Alessa Gillespie, the creepy psychic waif whose botched religious sacrifice turned the town of Silent Hill into an empty, mist-shrouded nightmare realm crawling with twisted monsters and psychological subtexts. Travis finds himself in said nightmare realm, exploring locations both old and new, and interacting with younger versions of the characters from the very first game. Sadly, the plot marches along an episodic and very predictable path, and Travis is a rather lame hero who doesn't talk much and gives no clue as to why he doesn't just head for the hills. I mean, seriously.

So, what about the gameplay? It's good, mostly. Origins retains the freaky, muted atmosphere of the series, with desolate streets and dark, labyrinthine building interiors. The flashlight and the staticky radio are here, as is the combat system with its emphasis on desperate button mashing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but not exactly groundbreaking March 14, 2008
By Raven
Platform for Display:PlayStation2
Fans of the series or those who have seen the movie should really get into this game. You meet Alessa, a younger Dahlia, and other characters from the first game (no spoiler, this is explained right in the booklet). Some connections and explanations are also offered which were pretty vague before. Lights and sounds also seem to draw monsters far more than other games (didn't seem to make much difference in the other games). The mirror idea was pretty cool too although it seemed to give you some controll over this horrific world.

The downside...
I was disappointed by the "new features" in this game. One is the use of fixed camera angles which I actually liked in resident evil. They could've worked here too but weren't handled as well as the RE games. At times a monster may be 2' in front of you but its off screen so you don't know until you either walk into it or shoot blindly. A couple times you walk down an aisle and disappear until you walk out- who knows if anything was there to pick up or examine. In other SH games camera angles may be used but at least you can hit a button and look around.

New combat features include punching... which makes sense (always thought it odd in SH& RE games that your options are basically run or shoot- noone can kick, etc). But on the other hand, I restarted this game and it takes something out of the "scare" when you can just walk up to the monsters and punch them into submission. Another combat feature is the ability to pick up assorted items for striking. At the end of the game however, I had a truck load of appliances and items which I never used. How many TVs, crates, etc did I have in my pockets?

As for the "scare", well there really wasnt one.
