Gallery: Silent Hill: Downpour

Konami released a small handful of new screenshots from the upcoming Silent Hill: Downpour, and I have to say I'm a little confused. This sure doesn't look like Silent Hill to me! It actually looks a whole lot like Bright Falls. Which, I mean, that was a pretty scary place, too, so there's that. And why wouldn't Silent Hill have a mine? Mines are scary. They're dark and they're scary. Maybe escaped convict Murphy Pendleton can run into Alan Wake so he can borrow his flashlight...

I just wish they'd give us some more detail on it besides that it's out on the 360 and PS3 sometime this fall. And I hope they have a playable demo of it at E3 I can get my hands on, because that's what sold me on Silent Hill: Shattered Memories when I was wary of how it would translate on the Wii. I need this one to be better than Homecoming.

I feel the developers kind of missed the point with whole abandoned mine thing. It looks nice, but so not a Silent Hill location. SH is a decidedly urban experience. An abandoned mine? Not so much.

@MattMyx - I partially agree with you on this. Much of SH's environment has been in the misty town, but often we delve into icky hallways or sewers that go deep underground, implying that the evil is strongest under the earth. Moreso if you consider the movie and the Silent Hill Experience as at least partially canon. Well, in my opinion, anyway.

This, however, is nearly identical to what we gamers saw in Alan Wake. I like AW and I like SH, but I'm worried about them becoming too similar if this becomes SH's focus.

Well to be fair, in the history of Silent Hill (Town History) there was a cole mine so that allready existed pre Alan Wake inspiration... Also it's nice to see not only the streets and buildings of Silent Hill but the wilderness too or rather the outskirte. I hope they will life up to the promises they made. well at least the graphic of the envirement has inproved compared to Homecoming.
