Ok so I just finished the Silent Hill HD Collection and while the trophies are super time consuming, I don't quite understand all of the negative reviews. Yes in Silent Hill 2 the camera is a bit of a challenge but if you can get over it (and you will get used to it) this game incapsulates everything that the survival horror genre should be. I would challenge people to find a suitable survivor horror experience that has been released on the console's in the last five years. These games are oldies but they are goodies! While the graphical quality is quite eh, it keeps the experience close to what you had back when these games were released. I remember going to school the next day and talking about how creepy the hospital was in Silent Hill 2. If you enjoy survival horror you will enjoy these games! High recommendation!

you had to have played these when they first came out in order to really appreciate this set. The game mechanics are very frustrating compared to games nowadays. There are zero "thrilling" moments especially compared to its competitors. The absence of in-game music makes you fight the inevitable nap after an hour or so of playing. I would go on but at this point, you either know you're getting it or not. So to SUM UP, get this for the nostalgia (or the platinum if you're a hunter) and nothing more.
