Siren Head: Retribution is a tense first person horror game where a Chattahoochee national forest ranger comes face to face with Trevor Henderson’s tall and terrifying creature, Siren Head.
In Siren Head: Retribution you take on the role of a forest ranger who turns up for his shift to find the ranger station deserted and shut down. After a little exploration you find that the generator is out, but once you start it, then it’s not just the sound of a whining generator you hear, there are voices and sirens in the distance…
To escape from the eponymous Siren Head (at least for one of the three possible endings) you need to gather the three items required to fix up a car and get the hell out of there. The three items required are a battery, a spare tyre and some gas, but the items are located in sheds in different areas of the forest and locations are randomized each time. Also, you can run but your stamina doesn’t regenerate at all, so you really need to conserve it as much as possible for when Siren Head gets too close for comfort!
Much like what happened with Slender Man, there are lots of sub-par Siren Head games popping up at the moment, but Siren Head: Retribution is one of the best. The sound design is excellent, the storytelling is very well done and choice of location is excellent, as it’s always a nerve-wracking experience trying to spot him in the trees! Making your stamina a finite resource is also a clever touch that does a great job of increasing the tension. Highly recommended.
