Here are my simple ratings for this game:
Music : 5 out of 5. Had to start with Music, because Akira Yamaoka's work is always my favorite thing about Silent Hill games. Can't wait for the soundtrack release.
Gameplay : 4 out 5. The gameplay was pretty much the same as the other Silent Hills, which is a good thing. They were very creative with this one in the way that you could use your surroundings more to help you survive.
Story : 4 out 5. Won't reveal too much, but it was another emotion-filled story that deserves to be part of Silent Hill's history.
Voice Acting : 4 out 5. Most of the Dialogue and Voice Acting was good, but like all video games, some of it was lame.
My biggest gripe is how short it is, but I've come to expect portable games to be short. If I did my math correctly, that's 4.25 stars out of 5. Pick this game up.
Silent Hill: Origins is about Travis Grady, a seemingly simple trucker who suffers from haunting nightmares that seem oddly familiar to him. The game starts with a visual of what appears to be a static radio frequency; Travis is talking over it to one of his fellow truckers. After the conversation the game proceeds to a cut scene where Travis is driving down the road. In the distance he sees a cloaked figure run out in front of his truck and slams on his breaks, narrowly avoiding a collision with the unknown pedestrian. Of course, once our hero exits the truck he finds the figure gone, but each time he looks in his rear view mirror he is confronted with the frightening vision of a young girl (SH fans will recognize this character as Alessa Gillespie) accompanies by eerie laughter. Once the high graphic scene ends the in-game visuals are put into effect. In front of his truck Travis spots Alessa and calls out to her, but she runs off. The player is given control and prompted to follow her. She leads Travis to a burning house, around which a suspicious woman (Dahlia Gillespie) is lurking about. Upon hearing a scream from within the flame engulfed building Travis runs inside. The player takes control of the game now and guides Travis through the house to where Alessa's charred form is lying over a red circular symbol on the floor. Despite her words 'let me burn' Travis picks up the burned girl and once more the player is in control of the game as the house is fled with Alessa in hand.Read more ›
This is a great game for the psp and it is phenominal to finally have a real survival horror game on the psp (now they just need to make Fatal Frame or RE). There are tons of weapons in this game from Kitanas, to wood, to whatever you can think of. In addition to great gameplay the game has a great replay value in the shape of its accolade system. Once you beat the game once you can unlock all kinds of secret weapons and goodies for use in replays. Unlike the RE Code Veronica, the camera angles are quite good and the control scheme is great as well. The camera can hinder you occasionally, but aside from the few times it does, I would say it works very well. I must commend the makers on the fluid controls, anyone who has played RE Veronica knows that bad cantrols can make a game really crummy. And worse off, bad controls/cameras are worse enemies than the ones actually in the game, thank god SH Origins does nothing fancy like this!
The storyline is absoluetly awesome, and it works well to make the monsters creepy as hell. The music isnt bad in the game either, although I generally dont pay much attention to the music. Anyone who is a regular MVC2 games tends block out the music automatically (mvc2 had one bad horrendous track- best fighting game ever though!).
My only few minor complaints against this game is that while the camera angles are good, they can be really bad in close quarters boss battles.Read more ›
