“Definitely Silent Hill 2,” he said when asked which Silent Hill game Downpour most resembled. “Downpour has a standalone story that’s not tied to any other Silent Hill game, so it’s taking the broader concept back to its roots.”
“Silent Hill 2 was one of the big fan favorites in the series, so we took elements that were appealing in that game and integrated them here,” he added.
EGM’s TAKE: Survival Horror games have lost that scare factor that used to keep people engrossed in titles for days, hopefully Downpour can recapture some of that magic.
