The Silent Hill HD Collection takes two of the series’ best entries, Silent Hill 2 and Silent Hill 3, and updates them with high definition graphics. Cutscenes are vastly improved due to the enhanced visuals, as are the lighting effects. Character models, along with the environents are also improved, although less noticeable. The high definition graphics do an admirable job of making the games feel even eerier than they did years ago.
Silent Hill 2 ranks among the greatest survival horror games of all time, and deservedly so. The amazing soundtrack and generally creepy locales mesh together in a way that isn’t often seen. The HD collection doesn’t add a whole lot to the formula aside from the previously stated boost in graphics, but then again why mess with such a highly loved title. You do have the option to opt for the new voice cast, although I personally prefer the original voices. Not to say that the new voice performances aren’t well done, but I just can’t help sticking to the originals.
