About Silent Hill Homecoming

Silent Hill Homecoming follows Alex Shepherd to his hometown of Shepherd's Glen to investigate the mysterious disappearance of his brother. On his quest, Alex discovers eerie occurrences taking place around town. Players help Alex unravel a tale that takes him from his childhood home to the fog-shrouded streets of Silent Hill to confront the evil that has taken his brother. The game features an enhanced combat system that provides players with a wide array of attacks to use against the evil monsters lurking throughout the town. Alex's terrifying confrontations are made even more frightening and realistic by an all-new soundtrack from acclaimed series composer Akira Yamaoka.
