sold by 1busyman, lowest I've seen. The PS3 version is better in every way with the patches!

isn't this a buggy mess even after the patches?

Yup. Still totally not worth it.

Did they fix the fog yet?  In any case, it's not much of a physical copy if it relies on patches to work.

It's better but not perfect.

Reports are that they originally lost the original code and couldn't do a complete teardown and rebuild like the ports for God of War collection and Ico.

Do not buy this POS. Not worth a dollar.

I'm still annoyed that this included only 2 and 3 and they call it a collection. Should've included part 4, and at least maybe a token or voucher to download SH1 from PSN.

I'm tempted by this cause I've never played them. To my understanding, the xbox version is the abomination cause it didn't get the latest patches. What's the story for the ps3 version? Anyone have first hand experience with it

They fixed a lot of the complaints people had with it.  Fog is better.  Slowdown is a lot better.  I actually finished it before-patch and then played through SH2 again and most of SH3 post-patch. 

 

SH2 was actually solid pre-patch with few technical issues for me aside from slowdown in one area and in the bonus content, and it was pretty much the same post-patch with the one slowdown being a bit better and fog being thicker.  SH3 is a lot better post-patch (pre-patch, there were times where turning on your flashlight would drop the game to half speed, and there were a lot of audio/animation sync issues).  Still a little slowdown and the syncing is still off, but it's better, and they fixed/polished up some other things.  They didn't get rid of all the bugs, though (post-patch, I still ran into a weird bug in SH2 where an area didn't load properly and I could run through walls and stuff and had to reload to progress...and I've run into recurring freezing issues in SH3 that I didn't have pre-patch).

 

Also, Silent Hill 2 features the original voice track and a new voice track, but Silent Hill 3 only has a new voice track.  If you haven't played them before, you probably won't notice (or might even like the new voice track better if you aren't looking at it from the subjective viewpoint of a long time fan), but it's worth noting.  And they changed some textures and there's some wonky water in a 5 minute section in SH2 that you can barely see through the fog now.  Not a big deal, but it apparently was to some fans.

 

Basically, it was sort of a mess of a production.  They cut corners and handed it off to a somewhat inexperienced production team.  They didn't have the final code, and instead of dismantling the final game and working backwards like Bluepoint said they do, they were working from unfinished beta code.  They had issues with getting everybody on board with voice over licensing, hence the new voice recordings.  The fog issue was apparently due to the fact that the ps2 fog used some kind of ps2 hardware-specific filter that the ps3 had issues with.

 

Despite all that, though, I still appreciated the new HD coat of paint and had fun playing them again both pre and post patch.  And I'm a big Silent Hill fan.  So, ya, basically, SH2 was pretty solid pre-patch and is better post-patch.  SH3 is way better post-patch.  Neither is perfect, but they're still solid enough on the ps3 with the patch.  I'd say the collection is still worth it, especially if you've never played them.  They're great games.

 

I'd, honestly, really like Konami to do a second collection with SH4, Origins, and Shattered Memories, but I'm guessing there's little chance of that happening after the backlash from this one and the money they had to dump into fixing the issues (which they apparently gave up on with the 360 version).

Unless you don't have a PS2 (and if you don't, get one!), I say avoid the HD Collection like the plague. Even with the PS3 version fixes, it's an abomination.

 

If you have a PS2, just track down the original games. (Preferably the Greatest Hits release of SH2, as it had a few new things.)

i'd suggest find a used copy for the original xbox for SH2 since that works on the x360 and ps2 copy for SH3.

I played through this version earlier this year. Both games ran about as well as I can remember them playing on PS2. I played the 360 version pre patch and it was awful, but the ps3 version is not that bad now. Certainly nowhere near as bad as some of you are making it out to be. I wouldn't pay 40, but under 20? It's a pretty good deal for both games on one disc.

Agreed. People are so quick to write off SH4 but it was still really good, I don't understand why 4 coudnt've been on there.

I think it had to do with the mixed fan reaction to it.  I know Konami said that they wanted to stick to the most widely loved games and concentrate their efforts there or something to that effect.  SH4 is actually one of my favorite games in the series (and 3 is, oddly enough, one of my least favorite), but I know at least one person who still seriously refuses to even call SH4 a Silent Hill game.

I played this pre patch and it was by no means unplayable. If you don't have a ps2 or feel like hooking one up then this is worth the money.
