Since it's been conformed that the original Silent Hill 2 voice track is going to be an option, I'm curious to know which track everyone will be using on their first play-through of the HD version of Silent Hill 2. I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess the overwhelming majority will go with the original, but lets see how the poll turns out anyway.
Whenever I buy a Special Edition of a favorite movie on DVD or Blu-ray if there are multiple audio mixes such as a new Dolby Digital/DTS mix and an original Stereo/Mono mix I usually view it first with the original audio then the second time with the remastered mix, it kind of adds more appreciation to the product and the remaster.
For Silent Hill 2 I will play through with the original audio first on the easiest difficulty settings, then go for the new audio on the easiest difficulty settings, then move onto Maria's subquest to do the same, then of course go back and do it again for the other difficulty settings, then of course all the endings.
Wow, the replay value has gone through the roof for this already infinitely replayable game!
I'm not dismissing the new SH2 voices entirely as I've only heard a small snippet,which I regret to say I wasnt impressed by.No doubt I'll playthrough with both options,but my heart will always be loyal to those originals.
I've still got the original games and all that, but I voted for new voices for 2. I'm looking forward to falling in love with the games all over again. Seeing it's only me in my circle of non-online friends that like the game and can get excited over the stuff in store for 2012. (As opposed to my tiny circle of online friends which... er...) It would of been great if it was out for Christmas, but it didn't. I dealt with that quite well. While the world will be watching the Olympics, I'll be seeing if I can finish the games before the closing ceremony. (No idea how many replays I can have before the Olympics kick off)
I love the Silent Hill Series. The new games did nothing wrong whatsoever, they were developed well, and did things different. I believe that Silent Hill Downpour will make all Silent Hill fans happy. Team Silent doesn't exist, but their series does.
Definitely the new, I'm really excited to hear the difference and see how it affects the game. One of the things I noticed listening to that small snippet that was gping around is how different some of the lines seem just with a change in inflection and which words are emphasised, particularly "I'm not your Mary". I'm keen to see whether the tone of the game feels different as a result. And I'm dead keen to hear the new voice for Angela, who is probably the character who interests me most but had voice acting that always sort of grated for me in the original.
