This is the same PS2/Xbox game from way back when but now rendered in wide screen with slightly better textures. Everything else looks dated and old. Not a great way to treat such a classic game (Silent Hill 2). And where is Silent Hill 1 if this is supposed to be a collection?? If you've never played SH2, rent this, if you have and were hoping for a graphical update to a fantastic game, move along. Nothing new to see here.
If you are having problems with the controls, go into options and select 2D type. Much better. I just started playing, but I was not impressed by the PS2 game. Maybe I'll change my mind as I get into this version.

I decided to try out this HD collection due to the recent explosion of HD collections in the market.
I didn't like it. The camera is restricted, the combat is RT + A, I really didn't care for the save system, the graphics don't really seem to be HD, and I guess Silent Hill is just not my game.
Give it a rent if your a fan of the series and decide for yourself if it's worth a rent. For everyone else give it a rent if you think the survival-horror genre is worth a try cause there are better games out there.
