Travis Grady is alone in his trucker lifestyle. He's content to live his life one mile at a time, making as few connections as possible. It's not that he doesn't have a personal history, but he's much rather leave his past in the rearview mirror.

His latest delivery stop takes him past a sleepy town called Silent Hill. Suddenly, something runs across the road and Travis is forced to swerve out of the way. Leaving his cab to investigate, he spots a young girl who quickly runs away. Worried that she might be hurt, Travis follows. He comes to a flaming house on the outskirts of Silent Hill. A girl screams from somewhere within the fire, and Travis rushes in to help. He fights through the flames, the black smoke burning in his lungs. He finds the girl, but eventually gives into the fumes and blacks out.

Coming around, Travis begins to explore the town, and quickly realises that there's another world festering below the surface of Silent Hill. While he's sometimes pulled into this world against his will, he can also exit and enter of his own free will. Silent Hill Origins introduces several gameplay elements unique to the game, chief among them the 'cineractive' system, which allows players to face down monsters while the control scheme changes intuitively for each situation. The scares come as thick and fast on PSP as they do on Silent Hill Origins' bigger brothers (sisters?) and we can heartily recommend a pair of headphones and a darkened corner for the ultimate spooky experience.
