Worth getting the Silent Hill collection if I never played SH3?

SH2 HD is good, the voice overs are much better in it. Worth the play through for that.

SH3 HD looks better in some ways, but definitely has some technical issues. New voice acting sucks compared to the original. If SH3 is what you want to play, definitely stick with the original PS2 version.

just know that all of the sound effects/music and a lot symbolism/backgrounds and atmosphere was butchered with the HD collection, If you've played the originals you'll instantly notice change in surrounding (classic paintings and really cool scary walls are changed) and change of music/sound effects from some memorable scenes which really hinders the enjoyment. They even change some key dialogue in SH3. So it's far from just bad fog or bad bugs or I don't like the new voice actors. it's a total wide disaster and compete disgrace to the original games especially when they change context of scenes through these changes or it's not as effective as the original sound. As a HD collection it's probably the worst job ever. This was probably because they used source code that was not the final release of the games so all missing content they had to add in stuff, like reintroduce soundeffects, missing scenery ,probably the fog was not finished so it's as bad as is. Also explains why the games are so buggy too since they ported unfinished product.

Just find the originals for consoles and then emulate them on PC or just buy the original PC versions (not the HD collection). SH3 on PC is pretty amazing if you can get it. They are about $16 online last I checked so not expensive. I rather play the finished and intended directors version for $30 on PC then give any money to this terrible collection. I don't know why they didn't take the PC version code instead of crappy non finished PS2 code.

it would probably cost you less and get you Silent Hill 2 as well just to get the HD collection. Make sure you are able to patch it, cause the patch fixed most of the major issues with the game.

Glad DmC shipped a million copies and was a success. Supporting risk-takers and change is how the industry grows.

This is one of those changes. It's terrible! They added some "Batman Joker" twist to it. Tom Hulett's taste is AWful.

HD Collection is fine, but the originals are better. I played the originals first to get the definitive experience, then I bought the HD Collection for Trophy Support.
