Not for kids

The negative reviews are coming from the little guys used to CoD games. Don't expect to pick this up and play it like it's a AAA current gen title. If you did that then left a nasty review you are misrepresenting this game! The very essence of this game is a tribute to my generation and nothing more folks!

That being said, if you have the stomach for old school controlls and graphics then there is an amazing well crafted story and experience here for you. There is a reason these games are well remembered and held in such high regards! They are epic! Also this is NOT a remake, it's a HD port, period.

Unfortunately this is part of the generation gap issue. Tread lightly kid o's.

I have played Silent Hill for years and really am impressed with the overall improvements they've made to a classic! The HD graphics enhancements and polish is real impressive and great! There are the old voice-overs from the original and there are new voices too. You get to choose between the two.

This collection includes Silent Hill 2 & 3. I would of enjoyed to play the first and original Silent Hill. That wouldo f really helped open up to newcomers to the series. The controls do take some getting used to on the 360 controller.

The way you move your character up,down,left to right and then the camera angles are better and unique. You can do an over-the-shoulder view to see what's behind you, where in the original version it was painful to see at times what's coming at you from diffrent perspectives and angles. This has been very much improved! I applaud it! The game controls are very good.

The graphics are even greater since it's been polished up to HD. One of my favorite series of videogames. Without doubt. If you're not familiar with Silent Hill and want a real interesting and pulls you in quickly with it's long and very well written story with detective-like gameplay with th horror genre, go pick it up!

This my friends is horror done right. 2 classic games we all know and love brought to modern consoles and remastered in stunning HD. I bought my copy today along with Operation Raccoon City and i can honestly tell you i found it very hard to stop playing Silent Hill even for a second. The stories in these 2 games are just so compelling and you might even find yourself being overwhelmed by nostalgia at some points as i was. The new HD look only compliments how amazing SH 2 and SH 3 already are. A must buy for die-hard Silent Hill fans. I only wish they included SH 1.
