Had High Hopes

I never played the Silent Hill games for the PS2 when I was younger, so i had hoped that the HD collection would show me why these games are considered a classic. I read reviews of the game while I awaited its arrival from Gamefly, so I knew that I would not be experiencing the games the way they originally ran on the PS2. Regardless of the reviews I still had high hopes that I wouldn't run into any of the numerous problems that others were experiencing on the PS3 version. Even with downloading the 300 megabyte patch, the framerate in Silent Hill 2 skipped and hitched even when nothing was really happening on the screen and I felt like I was missing some audio here and there. I tried out Silent Hill 3 and did not notice any major framerate hitches, but the audio is out of sync at times. Which is a issue when you rely on your trusty radio to cue you in when there is a enemy around. I don't know if the 360 version has these same bugs, but if not I will try that version. If you can deal with the framerate and audio issues then by all means, enjoy the game, but for me, it just wasn't cutting it. I just feel with the delays the game had it should of been more polished going out the door instead of feeling like a money grab. Oh and where is Silent Hill 4 or even some PSP releases? At least Konami did right with their Metal Gear Collection.

Better on the PlayStation 2

The controls are horrible. for some reason when my characters walking it freezes and or slows down. I don't recall this ever doing it on the PlayStation 2. A remake is supposed to be better not worse. Konomi where's your head it's obviously not into games. I'll stick with playing these 2 titles on my PlayStation 2!

Not a whole lot can be said about this game. Controls are archaic, lags a bit, but man. Venturing through the storylines of my 2 favorite entries in the Silent Hill franchise was just as fun this weekend as it was the first time I played them years ago. As always, Silent Hill 2 remains my favorite entry and the ending almost always brings an emotional response. Game development at it's best!
