    = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
    This review is from: Silent Hill Origins – Sony PSP (Video Game)
    I would actually give this game 4 stars, but I’m rating it 5 to help balance the 1 star review given by someone who obviously received a faulty copy. There’s always going to be faulty discs, and he made it sound like all of the copies are faulty. Clearly they’re not, because I’ve played this game through twice so far with no problems.

    Here are my simple ratings for this game:

    Music : 5 out of 5. Had to start with Music, because Akira Yamaoka’s work is always my favorite thing about Silent Hill games. Can’t wait for the soundtrack release.
    Gameplay : 4 out 5. The gameplay was pretty much the same as the other Silent Hills, which is a good thing. They were very creative with this one in the way that you could use your surroundings more to help you survive.
    Story : 4 out 5. Won’t reveal too much, but it was another emotion-filled story that deserves to be part of Silent Hill’s history.
    Voice Acting : 4 out 5. Most of the Dialogue and Voice Acting was good, but like all video games, some of it was lame.

    My biggest gripe is how short it is, but I’ve come to expect portable games to be short. If I did my math correctly, that’s 4.25 stars out of 5. Pick this game up.

    Now this review maybe a little subjective since I am an avid silent hill fan, I will try to be as objective as possible. First the review above is not a review but a complain so don’t take it seriously, also there will be NO ps2 version this is an exclusive to the psp. (Much needed if I may add)

    Silent Hill: Origins is about Travis Grady, a seemingly simple trucker who suffers from haunting nightmares that seem oddly familiar to him. The game starts with a visual of what appears to be a static radio frequency; Travis is talking over it to one of his fellow truckers. After the conversation the game proceeds to a cut scene where Travis is driving down the road. In the distance he sees a cloaked figure run out in front of his truck and slams on his breaks, narrowly avoiding a collision with the unknown pedestrian. Of course, once our hero exits the truck he finds the figure gone, but each time he looks in his rear view mirror he is confronted with the frightening vision of a young girl (SH fans will recognize this character as Alessa Gillespie) accompanies by eerie laughter. Once the high graphic scene ends the in-game visuals are put into effect. In front of his truck Travis spots Alessa and calls out to her, but she runs off. The player is given control and prompted to follow her. She leads Travis to a burning house, around which a suspicious woman (Dahlia Gillespie) is lurking about. Upon hearing a scream from within the flame engulfed building Travis runs inside. The player takes control of the game now and guides Travis through the house to where Alessa’s charred form is lying over a red circular symbol on the floor. Despite her words ‘let me burn’ Travis picks up the burned girl and once more the player is in control of the game as the house is fled with Alessa in hand. Outside Travis faints in the midst of pleading for someone to help the poor girl he has just saved.

    Upon awaking he decides to go to the hospital to see if Alessa made it. What he encounters at the hospital, however, is not quite what he had expected. And thus our game begins! (Original plot summary from first hand experience of the game.)

    Pros:
    -As always great storyline, even better dialogue. The main protagonists story (Travis
    Grady) is in true SH fashion very depressing and human.

    -The fighting system is great ALMOST anything can be used as a weapon from a type writer to a lamp. This provides even more realism to the SH world. Plus we finally have a character that can fight back with his fists! (Not a writer, widower, teenage girl, or renter). The monster are also very intimidating, not only on size how they look and walk.

    -The graphics are amazing; the story unfolds amazingly on the psp. The sense of dread is greatly enhanced when you are playing on the psp with you headphones on. The visuals on the 3 main settings (hospital, mental hospital, and hotel) are very detailed and realistic. An example of the detail put into the game is when you kill a monster and step on his blood you leave tracks behind you as you walk.

    -The score is amazing, as always Akira Yamaoka delivers the perfect sound/song to every scene in the game.

    -The game length is relatively long (for the psp) from 5-6 hours on my account, exploration is fun yet terrifyingly suspenful since you never know where the monsters will come from.

    -Also replay value is high since there are many achivements to be completed.

    Cons:
    -TOO many items and weapons. Every time I play SH I get this since of hopelessness, meaning I am alone all I have is a pipe to protect myself and a few bullets. This time I felt soo safe that it took away from the feeling that I usually enjoy. An example is, you get a machine gun in the middle of the game, when I got the gun I enjoyed it for a while but stopped using it since it felt like I was playing RE instead of SH.

    -Monsters felt like they were mere copies from the movie or original games.This can be seen in the nurses and armless monsters. Also even though I enjoyed it there is a monster (The Butcher) in the game who takes an awful lot after the much beloved pyramid head. Even though I loved pyramid head I expect WAY better from SH then recycled enemies.

    Overall I loved the game and would recommend it to any silent hill fan, or just someone looking to see the real POTENTIAL of the psp.

    You have to play this as they recommend, with the light out and head phones on. The music and sounds are just awesome. I swear I’ve jumped a couple times. I can’t play this around my 7 year old with the head phones off because he says it sounds to scary…and that is a true testament to this game.
