Homecoming had too many ideas. Here are three games that did the whole nightmarish, interdimensional flavour of horror more successfully.
the spirit is willing The Evil Within 2
Shinji Mikami’s pet project feels spiritually like more of a Silent Hill 2 successor than most of the actual series. Horrific stuff.
on its own Silent Hill 2
One of the few horror games that doesn’t feel derivative to cinema. A uniquely unsettling horror about loss and guilt.
fire power Alan Wake
With a combat focus and linear story about interlocking dimensions, this is what Homecoming could have been.
