The lights are on
I really liked SH Downpour despite some of the issues... what I liked especially was the art direction and tremendous attention to detail... the environments were creepy and often gave me goose bumps or sent a chill down my spine, even on the second play through... I thought the sound, and often lack there off, often set a great mood... no problem with total silence in a creepy house to the point you can hear flies buzzing. I found the voice acting to be top notch, except for maybe some of Murphy's reaction to the events around him. The Otherworld was pretty cool... The issues included choppy frame rate, clunky combat, and having to check the stats menu to what Murphy's health was... would've been better with some sort of small inscreen indicator.
