Silent Hill: Downpour|
Resident Evil 6
It's funny playing both of these in the same night. Silent hill solo obviously and resident evil I'm playing co-op. Both the latest incarnations of their respective franchises and both have similar aggregate review scores. Silent Hill to me plays like a proper survival horror game. Genuinely creepy if not out right jumpy at some bits, in my opinion it's retained enough of the elements that made the series great and is a fantastic experience that I'm looking forward to playing more of.
RE6 on the other hand... Well. Both of us enjoyed the first half of Leon's campaign. Now midway into Chris's and it's hilarious. It plays like a spoof, constantly giving you things to laugh at. We'll definitely finish it as we are very much enjoying it, but for all the wrong reasons. Frustratingly there are elements of a fantastic game in there, but everything is just so over the top it's impossible to take seriously.
Silent Hill wins this round.
