  • Product Description

    Silent Hill HD Collection combines two classic spine-chilling Silent Hill titles from the past and brings them to the PlayStation 3 for the first time ever. Introducing Silent Hill 2 Restless Dreams and Silent Hill 3 with enhancements including true high-definition graphics, this offering gives new fans and old fans the opportunity to experience the early era of Silent Hill as a true genre-defining experience with the added value of two games.

    Silent Hill 2 Restless Dreams follows the sad story of James Sunderland as he woefully enters the sleepy town by a mysterious letter from his deceased wife. Seeking the chance to see her again beckoned by guilt and remorse, he stumbles upon his these fears manifested through unseen evil and ominous characters leading him to the asylum of another world. The fight against the truth that his wife has died, James must escape the lumbering demon Red Pyramid (a.k.a Pyramid Head) along with his mystified fears that have taken the form of living monsters within the haze that is Silent Hill.

    Serving as a sequel to the original Silent Hill game, Silent Hill 3 centers on the forces of the demonic cult that spreads the insanity of the otherworld through Claudia, a cult member attempting to bring Harry Mason's daughter, Heather, into Silent Hill. With a subplot and themes involving the loss of innocence and childhood, a web of intrigue is spun by Claudia with intentions to birth a new god.

    • Experience the two classic Silent Hill titles previously released on PlayStation 2, Silent Hill 2: Restless Dreams & Silent Hill 3, that defined the Survival Horror genre in its early inception
    • Both titles re-mastered to HD at 720p for improved graphics on PlayStation 3
    • Completely updated in-game voiceover directed by series vocalist Mary Elizabeth McGlynn and soundtrack sco

    5.0 out of 5 stars "There was a hole here, it's gone now" 10 July 2012
    Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
    There are enough reviews on here listing the problems with the HD port (represnting the fun rating) so instead I'll focus on the games themselves as opposed to the technical issues; which do unfortunately affect the gameplay experience.

    Silent Hill 2 redefined what horror video games were, prior to it's release Resident Evil sat firmly atop the pile, while fun they were rarely scary, more akin with a homage to cheesy horror films complete with hammy dialouge than an actual frightening experience.

    Silent Hill 2 changed all that, there's a reason more than a decade on its still looked back on with such adoration, held as the gold standard. Indeed the six sequels since have never been able to recapture what made Silent Hill 2 so great.

    So what is it that makes Silent Hill 2 great? Simply it's the story. You take on the role of James Sunderland who receives a letter from his previously terminally ill, now deceased wife Mary asking him to return to their special place of Silent Hill where she's waiting for him, upon arrival James begins scouring the town but finds it overrun with monsters.

    While it sounds like a fairly run of the mill horror scenario it's not, evoking cinematic ques from the likes of David Lynch's darker works or Adrian Lyne's Jacob's ladder, it's an incredibly atmospheric tale that will completely suck you into the oppressive world, loaded with dark, sexual and nihilistic imagery that will leave a lasting impression. Certain scenes in particular as you watch one of the characters walk away from you up a burning staircase as they become slowly enveloped remain haunting even now.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Good stuff (mostly) 20 Jun 2013
    Verified Purchase
    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
    Alot of reviews complaining about graphics here but ignoring the 'fog issues' which don't seem to happen on my version I'm quite enjoying playing the games and given I was in my early teens when the second one originally came out playing through again while actually understanding all the visual imagery used etc is giving me a fresh outlook on the game's story. The hd graphics are better than alot of people seem to be saying but again these are old PS2 games at heart with a bit of gloss.

    The controls for both games haven't changed from the originals but they are basically a 'survival horror' style setup so given that the gaming industry doesn't cater to that market anymore some younger people may not enjoy it.

    I also have to add that the new voices on Silent hill 3 wind me up quite a bit especially as they are not optional as in SH2 but if you've never played the original version you'll probably not care.

    2.0 out of 5 stars That'll do... 14 April 2012
    Verified Purchase
    Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
    It's a shame i can't put as much effort into this review as the people who worked on the HD remastering of this collection.

    If i could it would be two words long...

    That'll do.

    Don't get me wrong, i can play games with minor issue with no problem, i have played games where people have been complaining on the internet and i've played the game and have barely even noticed them, or they were so minor they didn't effect my enjoyment of the game. The same can't be said of this HD collection.

    We all know how good HD collections can be, just look at the Metal Gear Solid Collection or Ico/Shadow of the Colossus, they look stunning on the PS3. Silent Hill deserved no less. The bare minimum standard for this collection should be, 'at LEAST as good as the original'... sadly they could't even keep to this standard.

    I appreciate the effort made on the new voices, from what i have heard they are better than the originals, HOWEVER they even messed this up, they spent all that money on the new voices yet somehow allowed an obvious glitch into the game to make them unusable. Every time James stops running, which is often, there is a godawful metallic scraping noice... supposed to be an out of breath sound effect. Fortunately this glitch isn't on the original voices track.

    For fear of this review just turning into a long rant and list of problems with the games I will just point out major issues. I am referring to the first 10 minutes of Silent Hill 2, Silent Hill 3 is supposedly much worse.

    Fog has been thinned out to the point where you can see the edge of the game world.
    Fog effects are now literally rectangle blocks of light grey floating around. I don't remember stopping in the fog in the original to laugh at the fog effects.

    This really should have been a fantastic buy; Silent Hill 2 is still by far the best best survival horror game I've ever played and Silent Hill 3 certainly has its charms.

    The quality of the port though... I can't speak to SH3 (after an hour of SH2 I stopped playing and put in for a refund) but the SH2 port is pretty much unplayable. The frame rate lags badly if there's more than just James moving on screen, some of the cut scenes don't seem in synch with the dialogue, the controls are unresponsive (and not in the classic: It's SH2, the controls have ALWAYS been bad way.... they're worse). The game in general seems to glitch every now and then. It's not a fun experience. It may be less jarring if you haven't played the originals, or at least haven't played them recently. Play them close together though and the poor quality here glares at you, there's no way a ten year old game should outshine its HD re-release so completely.

    I had a look about to see if / when this is getting patched, but apparently it already has in the US. And it didn't work... So I'm not holding my breath for a proper fix any time soon, if at all.

    Some have said the 360 version is less buggy (not bug free...), so it might be a better bet if the option is there and you don't have the ps2 originals.

    For shame Hijinx. It can't have been easy to do, but somehow you ruined a classic.

    **Update: In case this is part of the problem... I played on a ps3 slim 250GB (1st gen of the slim I think). Also, there MAY be more than one version of the collection out there at present (just after launch) with one showing the bugs and the other not. In the former case: BAD PORT and maybe not fixable... or not easily / quickly. In the latter case, things may well get better once the defective stock is out of circulation. In other words maybe don't buy this for a few months or until there's word the issues are definitely resolved.
