Silent Hill HD Collection: Screenshots and Info
Double Whammy of Silent Fear
We got a good amount of HD re-releases coming out this quarter. Ico/Shadow of the Colossus, the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, and also the Silent Hill HD Collection. What’s exactly a part of this collection? We get Silent Hill 2: Restless Dreams and Silent Hill 3. No Silent Hill 1? Unfortunately not, but in all honesty these two are, and have been, the best in the series.
In case you need a recap of what these two classic Playstation 2 games are about, here are their official synopses:
Silent Hill 2: Restless Dreams
After receiving a letter from his deceased wife, James comes to Silent Hill, their “special place”, intent on seeing her again. There, beside the town’s famous lake, James meets Maria, the spitting image of his late wife…
This definitive version of Silent Hill 2 includes Maria’s side-scenario “Born From a Wish”.
Silent Hill 3
It comes when you least expect it, unannounced and with no rhyme or reason. The world shifts into a landscape corroded by nightmares, and Heather finds herself caught in the midst of its transformations. The cheerful murmur of the shopping mall is soon replaced by insidious silence. The only sound is the footsteps of some twisted creature.
All Heather can do is escape—that is, if she wants to live. As the monsters gather to attack, Heather grabs a gun…
I can’t recall how many times I had to take ‘breaks’ from Silent Hill 2 due to getting ‘too into the game’. Both these games are being remastered in 720p HD graphics, updated voiceover/music quality and full trophy / achievement support.
The game will be available for the low price of $39.99 and available on both XBox 360 and Playstation 3. This is a great opportunity to relive some of the horrible nightmares of your past gaming, or to experience one of the milestones in the survival horror genre (Silent Hill 2 baby, it’s freaking terrifying).
You can pick up the Silent Hill HD Collection December 1st, 2011. Check out the box art to the right and a few screenshots below:
