I have Silent Hill 2 and 3 on PS2 and they work just fine. I love those games a lot so I was planning on getting this HD collection just to see the changes. However after hearing about all the glitches and other stuff with the voices not matching the lip movements, etc, should I just skip buying the HD collection?
Is it even worth buying when the game eventually drops to a lower clearance price, or should I just replay 2 and 3 on PS2?
I have SH2/3 for PS2 and for PC, which is good because I dont have a working PS2.
I preordered SHHD for PS3, and a few weeks later, I sold my copy back on amazon.com because I didn't want it. If you have working copies, I wouldn't personally recommend it. I still think the best visual experience is on the PC, but the best gameplay was on [older] consoles. If you're not a collector and don't care about trophies/achievements, I don't see much point if you have the games in playable versions. [shrugs]
The changes mostly consistent of stuff they've removed or broken, and it doesn't look good enough to justify the technical issues because they've partially broken that too, I'd stick with your original copies if I were you.
Did you get SH2 to work with gamepad? I couldn't. I don't even care though, because it looks nice. SH3 works beautifully on my computers with a gamepad, though. Check amazon or ebay for used copies of of PC versions, don't know what they're going for these days though, I bought mine years ago.
For gamepad on SH2, I had to use a different program to make it work. I used Xpadder, you can basically map the gamepad's buttons and analog sticks to emulate your keyboard's keys and your mouse. It's annoying to setup in SH2's case since you need to write down which buttons do what from the game, then go and map them in the program, but at least you can save a configuration so you only have to do it once.

I've always used SH2's built-in controller support without issue. What controller are you trying to use, and is it working partially or not at all? And when you said the older console versions have better gameplay, I'm guessing were you just referring to controllers being more suited to the games than keyboard and mouse?
This is a excellent pick up, but all original remakes are; I got the remake of the Halo: Combat Evolved and I was mildly impressed. Anytime you can get two classic games for a cheap price, its always worth it, especially SH2 & SH3.. love it.
I actually have to disagree on this one. I am pleased with the HD Collection *so far* and to be fair - I have not played the entire thing through yet. So far I have had no issues, and DAMN the games look amazing!! My only gripe is that when you play SH2 you get a choice on original voices, or new voices. As far as I can tell, when you play SH3 you get no choice. It's new voices or nothing. Other than that, I love the thing. Buy it for a new appreciation of IMO, the two best games in the series.
You should wait until the patches come out, then wait to hear customer responses of if this patch will actually fixes things, then go from there. Besides, the game may go down in price by then. Win-win if the patches actually patch.

This is what I'm thinking of doing. I'll keep checking up on the new patch release, and when everything is sweet, glitch free HD Silent Hill goodness I'll then consider making my purchase.
