NGB: Silent Hill HD Collection Video Review

Years after they were originally released on the PlayStation 2, Silent Hill 2 and Silent Hill 3 make a return to home consoles in the Silent Hill HD Collection. Have both survival horror titles aged like a fine wine or should you stay as far away from these HD remasters as possible? Watch our video review to find out.

Reviewer apparently didn't know that there is other versions too than PS2.. How it compares to XBox version or to PC version?

HarryMasonHerpderp2496d ago

They look amazing on the PC but they are
really buggy which is a shame.
Silent Hill 3 wasn't as bad as SH2 though (bug wise).

Coffee Pot, I know I played on the Xbox as back in the day I couldnt afford both, but I didn't know it was on the PC also?

I just bought the HD Collection and cant wait to play again, SH2 was one my favorite gaming memories.

NGB2496d ago

Sorry, we didn't receive the PC version from Konami, only the PS3 one.

kza2496d ago

Why no SH1?? Its suppose to be a collection afterall.

HarryMasonHerpderp2496d ago

because its a playstation 1 game.
Should of included SH4 though.

Summons752496d ago

Silent HIll 4 was crap they should have added Shattered memories.

I give this game a 4/10

I was playing it yesterday and turned it off then hooked up my PS2 and just played that one instead.

truly disappointed.

HarryMasonHerpderp2496d ago

What were the problems?
apart from the different voice actors?
still not sure whether to get this and im
a huge fan but im hearing about edited cutscenes,
bugs,an altered soundtrack and i dont like the new
voices. help me out please i would appreciate it!

Morgue2496d ago

buy yourself a used PS2 and get SH2 on Amazon. Or buy the collection when it's fixed.

jc485732496d ago

game suffers a lot from frame rate issues. Stay away from game at all cost until Konami has found the solution to fix this mess.

NGB2496d ago

We didn't encounter any major frame rate issues during the review process, hence no mention of it.

If you're a fan of the series, then this is well worth picking up. As we say, would've been nice to have Silent Hill and Silent Hill 4, but 2 and 3 are great survival horror titles, even more so in HD!

Morgue2496d ago (Edited 2496d ago )

I've beat SH2 so many times that I can't remember but the PS3 version of the game was a disaster from the start and last night I got caught in some weird glitch where I couldn't see my guy and said the hell with it and turned it off.

NGB2496d ago

That's certainly worrying, however we can only go by what we encountered during our playthrough. There was slight frame rate stutter, but nothing major and no glitches. Were you able to get out the glitches or was a hard reset required?
