    Silent Hill HD Collection reminds adults that, like children, they have deep, irrational fears.

    Whether you're a Silent Hill aficionado or someone who's been patiently waiting for the opportunity to experience some of the best games the horror genre has to offer, this is a collection you really shouldn't miss.

    Silent Hill HD Collection is the best for neophytes to enjoy part of a series which wrote horror dictates on console universe, while also reminding the older ones that you're never too old to feel real fear under your skin.

    Silent Hill HD Collection is hardly well-rounded, but its tense manipulation of mood still rattles all the right nerves. [Apr 2012, p.62]

    New players who haven't played these before should certainly give this compilation a shot, but those who have played these before would be better served by playing on the older systems instead.

    I donĀ“t know if this botched port can at least in some ways be fixed by patches and it seems, that the PS3 got it even worse. Be that as it may, the way Konami presents these classics is neither a favor to itself nor the franchise.

    Incomplete, glitchy, and visually degraded, Silent Hill HD Collection is Konami's greatest insult to the series.

    i dont see how you guys are saying there is glitch's not once in my game i played i did not see one glitch.... i installed my game to HDD idk if that helped or something but i heard the PS3 had a big glitch in it

This is the worst HD remake I EVER played, and is a slap to the original PS2 creators. Konami should be ashamed of releasing this sh!t and buying out people to rate this game a 10. Expand

The HD remarstered collection offers great value, the graphic looks crisp, and specialy Silent hill 2 is looking great considered its age. The new voices are a great offer. The old one seems kind of weird listening to, like the emotional sequences sound unrealistic and outdated. The sound effects are still great, and still makes you s#4i! your pants, too bad the music ha sent been remasterd too, like the voices. There are some small texture problems, and some small framerate issues, but nothing thats inflicts the great experience of revisiting Silent Hill in these two great games. Expand

    Until they patch the poor sound and glitches in gameplay, then this gets a 6. Which is a shame because arguably SH2 and 3 were the best gamesUntil they patch the poor sound and glitches in gameplay, then this gets a 6. Which is a shame because arguably SH2 and 3 were the best games in the series, barring the cult classic SH1 which set the high benchmark. The 'descaling' of fog in SH2 is nigh on blasphemy, the atmosphere is key to the psychological horror which these games are famous for yet they decide to remove elements of it? And the different voice acting on SH3 is not up to standard, again why include something that devalues the experience. These criminal proceedings and the controls deem this collection a wait for the price drop game, again Konami (look at Seabass and PES) have short-changed classics for the sake of a quick buck! All the above faults are inexplicable when Konami refused to include SH1, though I personally won't let this effect the memories I had from the originals. And who else is getting annoyed with xborn74 reviewing style? Expand

    If konami gave this over to the studio that did the metal gear solid HD collection I have a feeling it would have a much greater degree ofIf konami gave this over to the studio that did the metal gear solid HD collection I have a feeling it would have a much greater degree of quality, the game would stutter any time I used the machine gun in SH3 and the entire clip would empty out, visual glitches just everywhere, just really disappointing. I still enjoyed playing through silent hill 2 and 3 but a hd collection sold at $40 bucks should feel like a improvement in all area's not like a trade off of somewhat better graphics in exchange for flaws in other area's. Oh also instruction manual was flimsy as **** and there was nothing offered in the way of extra's. $20 is what you should shell out for this weak "collection" in it's current state. Expand

Silent Hill 2 and 3 are some really great games. This port, however, is not well done. In 3, if you fire the SMG, the audio glitches up HORRIBLY. It does the same thing in SH2 with the chainsaw. I don't know if this has been fixed yet, but it shouldn't have been sold like that anyway.

    The games look better than the PS2 versions, but the PC versions can actually look better than how it looks in the HD collection. It seems they took out a lot of the lighting effects in 3. 3 overall just has tons of problems.

    Just avoid this. Too many bugs and glitches, especially in 3. Just play the original versions of the games on the PC if you can.

    I had to finally create an account here to warn people to stay far away from Silent Hill HD Collection on the Xbox 360. The product is brokenI had to finally create an account here to warn people to stay far away from Silent Hill HD Collection on the Xbox 360. The product is broken to the point of being largely unplayable and it is actually *impossible* to experience everything within the games. The Silent Hill 2 part is so badly glitched it is actually against the law to market it as a Silent Hill 2 experience. Whenever you unlock an achievement for killing a boss, the game almost freezes up and it takes multiple minutes for it to finally continue moving on. The graphics look worse than on the original PS2 version. There are multiple instances where the textures look laughably terrible and are even completely missing. Also the sound keeps cutting out and crackling as a sign of a terrible job by Hijinx Studios. The worst glitch in this crime against humanity comes at the very end. When you've beaten the game, it freezes into the Result Screen. It sometimes manages to churn through that part after roughly 15 minutes of frozen screen, but it still glitches the game from actually acknowledging that you've beaten it. This means *no new game plus* and it also glitches outs roughly half of the achievements from that game. (No chainsaw, no blue gem, no nothing after beating the game). After this I refuse to even try the Silent Hill 3 part, as I can't trust this product to even function in any way. A terrible HD collection. Do not ever even look at it. Not even to spit at it. It is not worth it. The creators of this travesty should be brought in to answer for their crimes ad for trying to deceive consumers into thinking that this is a gaming product. I refuse to classify an unplayable mess of glitches and freezes as a "video game". This is simply garbabe on a disc that doesn't even work. Avoid at all costs. Expand
