It could be good without the "evil" hands... Just the book with maybe some texts from previous files or even in game files...

Oh man, why'd you have to remind me?



It wasn't a slight against America, just that, traditionally, the American boxarts for SH games are considered inferior to the European and Japanese covers.

To me, it isn't anything special. I don't loathe it, but I don't find it particularly eyecatching, either.

I don't know, I've got to hand it to Konami. The first time I saw this, it really reached out and grabbed my attention.

Now you're just exciting my love for puns. I'm not sure I can handle all my feelings.

I may have missed something but isn't Clive Barker English?

Yes. Clive is English, not American...

America still has Stephen King, HP Lovecraft, Edgar Allan Poe, and whole slew of other good horror writers.

^Hey, hey, don't typecast EAPoe's stuff! He was also considered to be at the forefront of both the detective and sci-fi genres, in addition to horror. But don't worry, I shall learn you, young padowan. :P

Uhh... the cover is... okay, I guess. The hands are effective, sure, but they're kinda more silly than scary. They definitely don't make me want to pay an arm and a leg for it, that's for sure. :mrgreen:

But seriously, though, the black ooze seeping from where the hands are escaping from the book kinda reminds me of SH4. Y'know, that weird ooze that formed whenever the Victims passed through physical objects?

The idea isn't awful, but it would be a lot nicer if the hands didn't look like they came from a cheap halloween costume kit.

My thoughts exactly.
I like everything else about it but the hands look too plastic, so not scary.

I wish they were something like normal hands with stitches or maybe eyes instead of hands ... or just a book, an eerie book with eerie surroundings.

Hey guys. I think that book is full of not good stuff. See, it has "DEATH" and "EVIL" on it and everything.
And the ugly hand things too, but yeah. I think that book isn't going to be a nice book to read.



[Reveal] Spoiler:
Pretty awful cover, but whatever. We haven't had a good boxart since 3. : \


No no no no no! please don't!

Silent Hill: Homecoming (US Boxart) is the most perfect game artwork ever! then followed by the European artwork of Silent Hill 4: The Room.
