Not much has changed

I was hoping for an update on an old classic but little has changed.
The control schema is awkward, the game play frustrating, the environments are repetitive and dull.
This game has excellent atmosphere and horror potential though; which is why I was looking forward to an updated version, but this is not an updated version, just an old game that really doesn’t hold up.

Survival Horror at its best

What can I say about Silent Hill 2 and 3, they are both probably the two most challenging games I've ever played. Not because of the action, but because the puzzles are so intense they make your head spin. These are the first to Silent Hills I played from the franchise and I have to say that they are two of the most scariest games I've ever played. The in game play definitely messes with your mind at some parts to the point where you don't know whats going on or what your supposed to do. I wasn't too fond of the controls when I first started playing the game, but after a while I got used to it and both of these games ended up being great games to play in the long run. Saying Silent Hill is scary is a huge understatement. These are two of the most creepiest and horrifying games you will ever play. This is survival horror at its best. I highly recommend this to anyone interested in trying out the Silent Hill franchise or is a fan of survival horror.

Reading the reviews I can understand why such low scores (pre-patch). I started playing them after the patches for the PS3 so I guess I got lucky. But these games were my favorite in the series. They always will be. They are originals and should be graded as such. These games shaped survival horror for the future. Dead Space, Assylum, and other next gen survival horror titles wouldn't be what they are today if it weren't for the Silent Hill series (aside from The Room, you didn't even go to Silent Hill in that one). After Playing I realized that I was experiencing them for the first time again. Hearing noises that I could never hear before. Also seeing things that I didn't understand playing them on an old tube TV. For example; In the apartment building in SH2 after you get the flashlight on the second floor you see pyramid head standing behind some bars in the hallway. Back when these games were released, I had no idea that's what it was. Games are art. People put years of their lives into these games based on ideas. I think we should give them credit where credit is due. (Aside from the XBOX 360 version. I heard Konami is offering credit towards other Konami titles in exchange if you bought it and can produce a reciept.) But they were and are still very great games.
