The durability bug that makes weapons crumble after defeating a few enemies is a bug I had not experienced in my original play through. In saying that, this is my only real major gripe with Scholar of the First Sin. The already large ( some might even say bloated ) DSII package is increased with the 3 DLC packages as well as remixed enemy design ( which to be fair makes a hard game harder, especially if this is your first time with a Soul's game) graphical improvements and much better co-op functionality with a increase to the number of players who can join your game.
Overall it's easy to say that this is the definitive DSII package but it's a shame that the durability bug tarnishes an otherwise great RPG that only suffers from its association with Miyazaki's incredible Demon's, Dark and Bloodborne games.
+Huge amount of world to explore and content.
+Wealth of weaponry and character choice. You can be a close range brute or spell slinger. Or both.
+Good combat, slow and methodical
+Improved Co-Op functionaltiy
-Durability Issue is a pain. Hopefully patched soon.
-Remixed enemy positions not ideal for new players.
-Hitboxes for player character are still huge resulting in dodging an attack still registers the HP damage.
It would have been nice to have the choice of playing the remixed version as well as the classic version. Apart from that if you're hankering for more punishing action after Bloodborne or want to venture into a grim dark fantasy then DSII is the game for you.… Expand

TheHaving been a fan f the first two infamous games Second Son was rather disappointing in a number of ways but gets a few things right.
+Some genuinely fun powers.
+Seattle while looking amazing doesn't have the diversity of Empire city or New Marais and lacks diverse locations.
+DUP are dull compared to the factions of infamous or the militia, mutants and conduits of Infamous 2.
+ Good and Evil decisions are kinda bland and the story is very cliched.
+Delsin is really annoying.
+Repetitive side missions.
Overall as an Infamous fan I was expecting it to be more pulp like as the first two infamous games were pure comic book fun while Second Son to me is just dull. A shame as I was really looking forward to it but it is definitely a case of first gen looks with last gen gameplay… Expand
Average User Score: 7.7Feb 3, 20133 of the best stealth games of their generation now released in one affordable package. The question is are they still worth a shot. For my3 of the best stealth games of their generation now released in one affordable package. The question is are they still worth a shot. For my money Hitman 2 has not aged gracefully. 47 moves as fast a s a child wearing concrete shoes in a swamp and the A.I is schizophrenic to the point of a successful mission can be scampered by walking into the wrong toilet. All in all Hitman 2 is probably the least enticing to play again.
Contracts fares much better but the grey on black interface means that people playing on a small tv better invest in a microscope. due to the unaltered text and the cutscenes look like they are taking place underwater due to them not receiving the HD treatment.However A.I behavior and missions are far better and it plays smoother than Hitman 2.
However the top pick is Blood Money, still the best Hitman game money can buy. It is however a straight port from the 360 code but don't let that sway your decision as Blood Money remains the best assassination simulator to this day and is yet to be topped, in my opinion.
As for the whole package even with the lick of HD paint the games still show their age but playability wise it is only Hitman 2 that truly suffers. There were no extras with the PS3 version whereas the 360 version has an art book I believe. Overall its still worth a romp through Hitmans hits but if you still have the original games I can't really recommend an additional purchase.… Expand

The games have being given a great makeover compared to their early Wii counterparts and would be the best of Capcom's HD collections so far with little to no graphical glitches. Move Controls and a Nav pad offer the best experience but one can use a controller if necessary. The lifespan of each game is 7/8 hours but each chapter contains a separate tale involving a different character as well as hidden files in the environment usually unlocked by blasting objects in the environment. My main gripe however is the camera in the Darkside chronicles which adds a bit of drama to the game can hinder in certain situations and the lack of a Platinum is a minor irk as well but by no means a deal breaker. All in all if you want to catch up with Chris and Leon before Resident Evil 6 or fancy a good blast em up light gun game than this is a essential purchase.… Expand
Average User Score: 8.8Apr 3, 2012Its hard to believe ten years have passed since Dante first swaggered onto our screens in the Devil May Cry series and now here is our chanceIts hard to believe ten years have passed since Dante first swaggered onto our screens in the Devil May Cry series and now here is our chance to catch up. Capcom has managed to do a better job this time around compared to the sloppy HD Resident Evil Collection and disappointing issues with the HD Silent Hill Collection we have a HD collection that stands up to its gaming legacy. Sadly the cutscenes remain in original 4;3 aspect but everything else has being brought up with a nice modern lick. DMC and DMC3 are the picks of the litter whereas 2 is the black sheep, but remains playable and a prime example of how to severely take a series in the wrong direction.
Devil May Cry set the standard for action games at the time and remains a solid romp with some tough boss fights, plenty of action and camp action. DMC3 remains in my opinion the best action game available. It contains a wealth of content, introducing styles, a huge variety of environments, great variety in enemies and some fantastic set pieces.
An excellent collection released at a brilliant price and worth is place on anyones shelf beside Bayonetta, God Of War and Ninja Gaiden.… Expand

This review doesn't reflect on the Silent Hill games which are classics, but the shoddy treatment Konami has put into them. From glitches such as sound not syncing up, to the HD sheen removing the atmospheric fog (mainly the ps3 version due to its difficulty rendering translucent textures.) As for the voice acting scenario at least Silent hill 2 has the option to play with the original cast which in my opinion are superb. Something about the new actors rubs me the wrong way.However its a shame that the option to switch is not available in 3 for several reasons. Douglas just sounds like a generic gruff detective and Heather's voice actress is going through the numbers.
Overall this reeks of a rushed job and if you have the option I'd stick with the classic games. A shame really as I was hoping for a remake as good as Metal Gear and the Ico and Shadow of the Colossus Collection.… Expand
