Really Bad

Where did it all go wrong?

Sloppy, lazy, inept...these are the words I would use to describe the people in charge of making Silent Hill HD Collection(PS3). Silent Hill 2 and 3 were and still are amazing games and are classics of the survival horror genre. But these ports are simply atrocious. Frame rates that stutter, chug and freeze to the point of making the games unplayable. Horrible lip-syncing during cut scenes and delayed or nonexistent audio effects. And the fog...how do you mess up the fog? Silent Hill 2 actually looked better on the PS2! There's also some odd control issues in Silent Hill 2 where the buttons simply stop working for no reason. Combine these control issues with the slow as molasses frame rate and you get a frustrating and disappointing experience that will make you want to dust off your PS2 and play the original games. Speaking of which, I have SH2 and SH3 for the PS2. I can pop them in right now and immediately start playing them with no trouble or waiting. So can somebody out there tell me WHY Silent Hill HD Collection requires a 4GB install and a 297MB patch??? These games are a decade old! Why can my little PS2 handle these games like a champ but my PS3 can barely run them, even after taking up 4% of the HDD? There's simply no excuse for ports as shoddy as this and Konami and Hijinx Studios should be ashamed of themselves. If you've never played SH2 or SH3 but you really want to check them out, do yourself a favor and hunt down the original PS2 or XBox versions. That way you won't be severely disappointed or get the wrong impression about these wonderful games. Let this game be a lesson for all developers out there that are thinking of doing an HD collection...THIS is how you do it WRONG.
