First 10 minutes Xbox 360 PS3

After Metal Gear Solid, it is now the turn of another famous franchise of Japanese publisher Konami to have the right to granted the HD label. The Silent Hill HD Collection is however only composed of two games, namely Silent Hill 2 and 3, which is a shame considering that the first game is completely linked to the third and that Silent Hill 4 was also released on PS2 and Xbox at the time. Also disappointing are the framerate issues these HD remakes suffer from, as you will sometimes see in our videos. If you can get past the technical problems and the archaic controls - Resident Evil 1 style -, Silent Hill 2 and 3 are still two phenomenal games you need to play at least once in your life.

I heard the only thing better in the 360 version is the framerate. Both have issues with soundeffects and the portrayal of the fog.

Also do you see the opening for Silent Hill 3 that they did? I'm talking about the video that plays before you get to the main menu. They went and remastered their own version of the video using footage from the HD game itself. THE ONLY THING they had to do was at the end of the video when it shows Heather standing on the carousel with the horses and they couldn't even do that. Its the bit where this yellow blur effect starts distorting the image on the screen and when the camera gets close to Heather her face emerges through it. The Blur effect is officially the only thing original that this developer had to do with this game and they completely fucked it up. Konami might as well have let them do the abortion that is Downpour. They should have got Bluepoint games to do it, geniuses at porting these HD games.

That guy is a tool who would love nothing more than to have a following and a neck-beard. Plus I find your lack of Gamersyde devotion disturbing.

Only Silent Hill 2 gives you the choice. Silent Hill 3 only features the new voices.

These remasters seem to have sucked the visual atmosphere from the games. They look too clinical. Not as much noise, dirt and grime. I dont get how they got them so wrong. Or why the 4th game isnt included?

Well, the first isn't included either. I can undertsand why they didn't include the original PS version but maybe they could have at least ported Shattered Memories.

I can't see why ANYONE would've picked this one up anyway.
I had the 1600x1200 experience on PC like what... ? 7 years ago ?
And both originals will look better on PC than on 360/PS3 (on a machine with 7 year old hardware, LOL). Plus if you considered buying it for PC today i'm sure you wouldn't spend more than 5 bucks per title.

I think you didnt get my point. I was pointing out that a 7 YEAR OLD PC-game is STILL looking better... Seriously Konami, how the fuck did you manage to do that ? Well it COULD look better than the original but considering the effort Konami put in... The fog is a perfect example !

This is shit!
They messed up the fog big time in 2. I just got to that scene and noticed the rope disappearing into a gray wall. I actually like the new voices in 2 so far. Except Maria's is way deep.
