It's been thirteen years since Konami's first Silent Hillgame came out on the old PlayStation, and now we find ourselves back in Silent Hill with the latest in the series: Downpour. Taking on the role of Murphy Pendleton, you're a guy fighting with his inner demons, all of which are revealed through the course of the game.

Previously a model citizen, Murphy has been thrown into prison for reasons unknown (at the start of the game, at least) but finds himself on the run following a bus crash while being transferred to a new facility. Of course, nothing goes smoothly when said bus is wrecked on the outskirts of Silent Hill.

The overall aim of the game, as always, is to escape from the town. In a series of flashbacks you'll discover the true reason why Murphy found himself incarcerated and how deeply he's linked to other characters – much like every other release in the series, to be honest. Early decisions potentially come back to haunt you later in the game as you progress through the Devil's Pit (a run-down tourist attraction on the edge of town with a story all of its own) and make your way into Silent Hill itself.

If you've never played a game in the series before this is a perfect introduction, giving you plenty of hints should you need them but also allowing you to make your own mistakes.
