The Silent Hill franchise took a bit of a hit in Australia when it’s last entry, Silent Hill: Homecoming, was initially refused classification, only to be released months later with some choice cuts.

“Silent Hill: Downpour marks the series’ return to PlayStation®3 and Xbox 360, and brings a completely original storyline which follows Murphy Pendleton, a convict stranded in the foggy, malevolent world of Silent Hill. Pendleton begins the game lost and alone in the woods on the outskirts of the fabled town, when his prison transport bus crashes...”
