This was my first time playing the series and I have to say, I wasn't impressed...UNTIL I played part 3. part 1 was HORRIBLE in terms of game mechanics; a hack and slash should NEVER have a fixed camera system (unless it's zoomed out to view EVERYTHING).
I was constantly having to readjust my move sets during combat or even just running through the mission due to the fixed camera angles throughout the game(s). (just 1 problem, will not focus on my game in particular)
part 2 was an improvement, but not by much; they fixed a few combat problems (e.g. adding target cycling) but the fixed camera was still very much a problem. Not to mention the story was still very dull.
Part 3, tended to the aformentioned problems with a 360 camera, and a decent targeting system. It even had a compelling story.
The endless action wasn't too repetitive either, and the awesome music DURING that action really made you feel like a BEAST!! :)
It has a great "leveling" system to help make your hero stronger. and post game extras add some great re-play value to this title!
to SUM UP, HD collection isn't something I would buy, JUST RENT. DONT BOTHER PLAYING THESE FOR THE STORY since part 3 is the only one with a story.
check out youtube if you're really that curious to learn more.
Unless you're a trophy hunter or just an old fan, look for another game.
