First details of the game reveal a town so vast that it needs a Subway system to explore, with areas that include the never-before-seen Southeastern side of Silent Hill

Neat, Konami finally listened to everyone that has wanted a complete version of Silent Hill in one of the games.

The only mandatory fights are boss battles, which take the form of quick-time-events.

Aaaaand, it's ruined.

Yeah, the boss fights seem really out of place. On the one hand, they're trying to take the focus away from combat by only allowing you to carry one weapon at a time, having the weapon deteriorate with use and making enemies stronger. On the other hand, they force you to fight bosses with QTEs?

They should just remove combat entirely.

I disagree. Silent Hill does need combat, but it can't be very effective. It has to feel like a last resort, which isn't to say it has to be clunky or no fun.

Also breakable melee weapons is a horrible mechanic.

they should make both the enemies and the game itself unbeatable.. that would be horrifying to discover - or maybe just annoying as shit
