The PC version is very, very broken. I highly recommend going with console if you intend to play.

I don't have a PS3 or 360 either. The PC version is a bit unoptimized but with the right hardware and... Windows XP it runs fine.

On Vista or 7 there're a lot of hitches at checkpoints and some issues with the dodging after a couple of loading screens.

Does it not still have the broken part in the game after a certain boss?
I could swear most people being unable to track down a save after the boss in order to continue because it constantly errored.

I've never even had that problem, I'm not sure.

The only time the game ever crashed on me is when I would minimize the window.

I was disappointed with one small thing about the plot.
The fact that we see Josh's ghost ( or hallucination if you will) leading/running from Alex.
It was too cliche. There should of just been the flashbacks of him and that's it. It would of added more mistery and depth to the storyline.
Everything else about the game was great. Awesome monster design, a completely new and interesting plot ( except for the aformentioned part).

Completely new and interesting plot? Sure, if you've never played Silent Hill 2.

I came through the PC version of the game twice without any errors or even slight glitches whatsoever.

_________________
I love the Silent Hill Series. The games: Homecoming, Origins, and Shattered Memories, did nothing wrong whatsoever, they were developed well, and did things different. Just because they were not by Team Silent doesn't mean that they're bad games. I believe in this series. I believe that one day, we can have a game that will make all Silent Hill fans Happy. I believe that Silent Hill Downpour can achieve this.
Team Silent may be gone, but their series isn't. Instead... it's here, it's alive.

If you agree, add it to your sig.

I snatched up Homecoming as soon as I could and it was one of the first PS3 games I played, after beating MGS4. I played it for about 2 days and beat it (2 days including stops for eating, bathroom, sleeping and socializing as well as derping around in game, dying, navigating, puzzles, first go arounds usually take me a while). I enjoyed playing it, though combat was kind of clunky (I found dodging a bit unresponsive and it became extremely difficult to fight back or defend in very cramped spaces; the hardest boss to me is Asphyxia because her room is just 1/4 bigger than herself) and I hate Smogs. Smogs are probably the worst normal enemy in the game to me because I am horrible at aiming a gun and nothing else will suffice while fighting them. The ending I got first go around also disappointed me but that was my own fault (I actually picked a choice I didn't want to lead into the decision I made but I hadn't realized it was a bad choice until it was too late) but, while I wasn't blown away by Homecoming by any stretch of the imagination, I did enjoy playing through it.

What disappoints me now is that I find it very difficult to replay. I have started countless new games but I always slow down or stop entirely when I hit the graveyard or the first Smog and I can't really pin point why. I know the game gets better from that point, it gets a lot better once you get to Sepulcher and on (I thought the climax of the game in the Otherworld church was really awesome) but I just can't seem to will myself further even to get to Scarlet and she was my favorite boss. Hell, minus the dolls (oh god dolls why), Hell Descent was probably my favorite part of the entire game.

I liked the characters, I liked the look, it played smoothly except for the combat (but what Silent Hill has a fluid combat system?) and the only other real complaint I had was that each monster got an introductory cutscene. That made them sort of lose their intimidating qualities even if their designs were really interesting (for the most part) because they just came out in your face and there was no real mystery to them whereas, in past titles, a new monster just shows up as you're playing and you're like "WTF IS THAAAAT?!"

Over all, I wasn't disappointed by Homecoming but it's far from the best and could have been better. I still enjoyed it, though, and would like to replay it properly in the future.

^Aura does have a point. The plot wasn't anything special, and it was predictable. Hell even a lot of people that like homecoming admit this. My friend predicted the plot twist about a few hours into the game the first time he played.

People are just bitter and can't get the hell over it. Might as well not even express your likes about the game or you'll just get snarky, smart ass replies.

Hell, people don't even discuss the game. This whole section is just the same crap over and over again about how much HC sucks. Le sigh.

^^^Haha...this....i don't get why folks get so upset over people complaining over homecoming either...i thought it was a decent game, i just hated the awkward combat. I respect homecoming tho...it really did try to please everybody...it had the somewhat SH2 storyline, it had the infamous PH, it had elements from the movie to draw folks in who actually saw the movie and it tried to expand on the combat that everybody complained about earlier in the series.

Again i thought the Helldescent levels and the otherworld house levels were done impressingly well....but the combat and the huge crossfire target for the guns was just plain ugly,....and i kinda didn't like the whole blu-ish gray themes....well at least when you got to the graveyard, i thought that should've been a terrorfying experience....instead it was a bit lackluster.... It was weird for me tho, when i came upon the graveyard i started to lose some interest in the title at that point.

It wasn't a bad game by any means, but some of the criticisms against it are valid....

Yeah, I don't think Homceoming was a "bad" game either, but... it scares me. It was kinda close to bad in some ways and it feels like the series is just looming closer and closer to it. Every time a new SH game comes out and it isn't "bad" these days I feel like a bullet was dodged and it's becoming a closer shave with time. I honestly don't want to see a bad SH game, I'd prefer the series to end before that happens. For me, more SH doesn't just automatically equal more awesome.
