We reported late last year that Silent Hill 2 was getting an HD makeover. As a fan of that game, I see myself as a bit of a purist and snob. Honestly, I think it comes with the territory. So I kinda scoffed at the idea of someone re-dubbing the entire game for it's re-release in the Silent Hill HD Collection. "Sure everyone sounds like they're on Dayquil; That's the whole point!" I said to myself.
Lucky for you, the guys at Konami have included both versions. Good for them! And hey, the voice acting isn't terrible, from what I played! If anything, I'm more surprised that they replaced some of the acoustic guitar tracks in the new version with an electric guitar.
See the video above and judge for yourself. And if for whatever reason you start foaming at the mouth in internet rage, just count backwards from 10 and remind yourself that you have the choice to play whatever version you like, original music and all.
