Just curious, I've never seen anyone love this game, which is a shame, as I'm playing it through again, and its better than I thought, If this was the only SH it would be a masterpiece. Its not my favourite by far, but if it was tweeked abit it sure would be in the top 3 :)

I think silence says it all here!
I didn't hate it :) But certainly wouldn't crack the top 3 for me.. I should give it another play through though, just for the hell of it.

Well, even though it's not my top favorite in the series (it's #4 after 2, 3, and The Room), it doesn't mean that I don't enjoy the game. It gets a lot of bad comments from the fans, which gets tiresome after reading the thousandth one, but it does not deter me from saying that I 'love' the game. It's just that it doesn't match up to the charm of the first 4, that's all.

It's a tough call between this and the original for me. So, sort of.

I still found myself really enjoying the game, despite its flaws, but it is not my favorite by any means.

I'm sure there are many people who found this as their first silent hill title and also their favorite.

Actually, if I had to put the SHs in numerical order from "most loved" to "least liked," Homecoming would be dead last.
This is from the opinion of somebody who doesn't play video games very often, so keep that in mind.

I appreciate that they at least attempted to use past information to move forward from (with the cult,) and they tried to bring another town into the mythology.
I didn't really like the monsters or combat, and some of the graphics seemed to be a little too inspired by the movie. The character designs and some of the scenes weren't very inspired. Idk, it was still a somewhat Silent Hilly story, and I can't really hate it *too* much.

There were a lot of things they could've done differently-I'll just leave it at that. :D

Yeah i thought homecoming was garbage as a silent hill game, and as a game in general it was just average. But there are people that consider it their favorite. They're just in the minority.

Sorry, it's my least favorite. I don't think it was an awful effort, I'd give it a 7, but it felt the least like a Silent Hill game and in the second half I was mostly just playing it to say I beat it, and to kill schisms.

Post subject:  Re: Is 'Homecoming' anyone's favourite Silent Hill game?

how would you guys rate them for best to least ???

this would be my order (Of the ones I've completed)

1. Silent Hill 2
2. Silent Hill 4:The Room
3. Silent Hill 3
4. Silent Hill
5. Silent Hill: Homecoming (like I said it would need some tweeks to be moved up)

It is my least favorite, due to many SHmovie influences.
And the part with the drill.

Yeah the borrowing from the movie definitely sucked, especially PH, collective groan.
Although it had some cool stuff like Hell Descent and Scarlett.. It just wasn't very inspired compared to the others, even Origins was much better. I'd still play homecoming over a zillion other games out there but yeah... I don't think it'll go down as a classic.

Best to least?

1st - Silent Hill 2 (9.6)
2nd - Silent Hill (9.4)
3rd - Silent Hill 3 (8.6)
4th - Silent Hill Origins (8.2)
5th - Silent Hill 4 (7.8 )
6th - Silent Hill Homecoming(7.0)

Sometimes I just don't know how sad I'd be if the series simply ended. I don't feel excited when a new game is announced anymore. I didn't exactly rush to play Homecoming and I'm not excited for Shattered Memories or Dounpour.

3rd-SH1
4th-SH4

6th-Shattered Memories
least-Homecoming

Pyramid Head shouldn't have been there, The Butcher? Yes. Butcher would have fit alot more than Pyramid Head which in my opion is why he wears the half pyramid thing cause he is only anger. PH has sexual urges and anger. And there were some plotholes like

When Wheeler is attacked by that human centipede he sounds like he is being murdered then you randomly find him later and never see him again.....
Besides that it was okay I loved the Prison, and some parts of the game were really fun. In my opinon.

Silent Hill 2
Silent Hill 3
Silent Hill 1
Silent Hill 4: The Room
Silent Hill: Origins
Silent Hill: Shatterted Memories
Silent Hill: Homecoming
Silent Hill: Downpour? Looks promising I hope it exceeds peoples expectations.

I'd probably rank Homecoming as my 3rd favorite

I guess I'm the only one who has Homecoming first on their most favorite SH games list then. (And just to say, I've played all SH-s, first being Silent Hill 1)

Post subject:  Re: Is 'Homecoming' anyone's favourite Silent Hill game?

I like all the SH games apart from Shattered Memories (haven't played it yet).

But Homecoming's gameplay is one of my favorites.

Haha, best typo ever. :)

I'd have to say Homecoming is my third, maybe second favorite? I have my reasons.
