Summary: Okay, the Silent Hill series is one of gamings greatest. Silent Hill 2 and 3 are the greatest in the series, BUT the HD collection makes out to be an ugly and bad experience. The sound is alright, it sounds like it should. Character models look alright but the town is ugly. The fog has been drawn back quite a bit and in some cutscenes you can see where the world drops off. The fog also looks ugly. It looks like milk and has a bad texture. At some points it is TO dark.
Summary: I bought i thinking what the heck cant be that bad well its not its fun and scary but for silent hill 3 is literally unplayable silent hill 2 is good except for the frame rate issues and lip syncing BUT konami says there is a patch on the way to help with this
Summary: As with every Silent Hill title, this one has clunky controls, frustrating combat and major graphics issues. However, the puzzles, atmosphere and beautiful HD refresh almost make up for it. A redesign with an over-the-shoulder control scheme would have been nice, as the cinematic scheme is now dated. But, this port was certainly better than nothing!
Summary: This collection is a technical mess, it feels sluggish and has hiccups just like downpour has. The frame rates are nice at times but are completely ruined by the graphical hiccups, this is especially present in Silent Hill 2. Other than the occasional technical issues, the game looks great, although graphical changes were also made for Silent Hill 3 such as the removal of fog and rust in certain parts.
Summary: I had never played the original Silent Hill games before, only the more recent editions which I'm told are vastly inferior, so this review is probably of most use to others like me playing these games for the first time. A lot of the other reviews are comparisons of these HD updates to the original versions, but I think some peoples memories of the originals have been influenced by rose tinted glasses.
Conclusion: First of all, why on earth did Konami give the go ahead to Hijinx Studios to work on these ports?. They have a terrible track record and seem like an incompetent, unqualified bunch of monkeys. Silent Hill 2 is a fantastic horror game and was very well deserving of a HD upgrade however this title certainly is not an "upgrade".
Summary: Games are amazing but for 20 there are way better choices out there. Unless you know are crazy about silent hill or horror games, i would wait. If money is not your concern you should have bought it already, game is amazing and the hd remake has been done pretty smoothly unlike the other hd collections.

Summary: Firstly I should say that perhaps I was being over optimistic of this game considering the last HD collection I purchased was the fantastic Metal Gear solid HD collection, However the first let down in this collection is it does not feature the original, this is however understandable considering the original game's age, however it does not feature the original in its original form which is a shame, furthermore it does not feature Silent Hill 4: The room, And that does...
Summary: Silent Hill 2 och Silent Hill 3 är riktiga pärlor när det gäller skräckspel. Dessa spel visade oss hur smarta, störande, läskiga och insiktsfulla spel kan vara. Än idag så är dem spelen högt uppe bland mina favoritspel.På grund av detta är det tråkigt att Silent Hill HD kollektionen till Playstation 3 inte är en hel produkt. Först och främst så finns det alltför många ljudproblem.
