Summary: As a Silent Hill fan i was extremely excited to get this collection. I had seen some reviews that ranged from an awesome product to complete garbage because of the bugs and malfunctions. While playing the games I had to stop many times because it would freeze and i couldnt do anything but restart the console (I know its terrible but idk what else to do) other than that I didnt really have any problems.
Summary: I liked the games but the HD version slows the game play down, mostly when I run pass an enemy the game will go slow. I also didn't like the new voices in both the games, some were good, but the original is diffidently better. I wish they didn't tweek it so much.
Summary: Prior to the second patch I would have given this mess 1 star (only because I couldn't give it zero). But with quite a few of the glitches fixed it has become playable. Although nowhere near the quality of the original (and with plenty of problems of its own) for those who have never played Silent Hill 2 or 3 it is worth a look (but only if you've exhausted all methods of getting your hands on the ps2 versions).
Summary: For a few months now I've been back on the Silent Hill games...we've been separated for far too long(laughing).Anyways I was going to buy this game locally and of course the store didn't have a factory sealed copy so I chose to acquire a fresh/non shelf-worn copy of the Silent Hill HD Collection. The clerk at the counter briskly warned me 'you will be disappointed',the guy seemed like a game snob so I paid no attention. SO IS IT WORTH BUYING? Yes and no...I'll clarify.
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...
