    Well.. it could be good.. it's been developed by western developers like the last 2 games, which I haven't played but from what I've heard, they both suck. So, I don't know what to expect here.

    Silent Hill is one of my favorite series, and the first game is my favorite. I wonder what they mean by "reimagining" the first game, the Wiimote could add a lot to this game: using IR for flashlight (from the image, looks like it's being done already), Wiimote speaker for radio noises, there's a lot of potential here.. hope the developers use it right.

    The last one I liked was the one with the nurses.

    Isn't a reimaging pretty much a remake?
    Still, I like what I see and Silent Hill one is still one of my downright favorites.
    Just walking down the foggy streets and listening for that radio crackle.
    Not to mention the ash babies. They still freak me out a bit today.
    I do hope it turns out good in the end and not some sorta crap fest.

    Don't they all have nurses?

    This is excellent news! I've been waiting forever for a remake of Silent Hill. Hell, it's still great on the PS1, still gives me the creeps, but updating it to better graphics is just gonna make it SO AWESOME! Plus if they do the radio in the remote speaker like CockroachMan said, oh man...

    They better not screw it up. The more like the original the better!

    What?! I'm more surprised that that's the May issue, and I barely got my April issue a week ago. ><

    Anyways, I played Silent Hill Origins(before my PSP was stolen), and I liked it(even though I sucked at it and when I got out of the hospital I didn't know what to do next). I'd want to try this one.

    More details from Nintendo Power:

    source: http://gonintendo.com/?p=77624 http://gonintendo.com/?p=77596

    Not sure about the lack of combat.. though, combat in Silent Hill was always pretty crappy.. and people would complain about the waggling anyway. Also, seeing that you can break through doors and climb stuff.. this could certainly make the game a lot scarier. Every other details is great though, Wiimote radio noise!

    what no combat? no waiiiiiiii!!

    Combat, although faulty, is an essencial from SH games. just fleeing isnt exactly fun... and doesnt add much to the tension.

    While you were *trying* to beat one enemy quick before another one came flying in, was fun...

    Thanks for the scans.. aside from the similar story and character names, it sounds like a completely different game. I really like the new ideas and how they're using the Wii controls, this has the potential to be one of the best horror games ever, but people expecting a more traditional Silent Hill game might be pretty disappointed.

    I was so stoked about this release, but now!?
    that's the ONLY thing I hate in forbidden siren, and the clocktower series.... no fighting...
    I really hate fleeing. once you kill those bastards you can feel secure.. now? you'll always have to run around in the rooms...
    that's also what i hated in the fourth installment of the series. the invincible ghosts....

    i will get this for sure, but I am not looking forward to it as much as I did before.

    This is great news! Here's hope it has some neat flashlight controls. For some reason the flashlight has always been my favorite part of the SH series. Really added to the scariness of it all. Especially those long dark corridors in SH 2. And hearing noises down the hall, and then shining your flashlight to see something limping towards you. [​IMG]
    Can't wait!

    Rumors around the net are saying that this one is a PSP/Wii release. Looks like I won't be needing a Wii for this game [​IMG]

    wow what the heck ?
    I really thought the guy on the screenshot (on the front page news) was Harry Potter .. and turns out the guy's actually called "Harry" ? hehehe...
    anyhow, I remember playing the game on the original PS1 console, it was considered an excellent game back then!

    First Silent Hill was a really good game which kept my attention for quite a few replays , in hoping they take a bit of time with this one because to be honest im getting a little sick of the crappy titles they keep throwing out.

    Hopefully decent graphics alla RE4 and the wiis control methods "could" make this a bloody good game , or they could just crap out as always and you might as well be playing a game with graphics ported from a commodore 64
