Silent Hill HD Collection: Konami Squeezes Suspense into Thirty Seconds
Konami has just released a new Silent Hill HD Collection teaser. The little trailer teases with its thirty second run. The fast, flashing images try to squeeze in a lot of Silent Hill 2 and Silent Hill 3 action into what feels like only a few breaths if you do get to manage a few breaths in. The tension is palpable, emphasized by the speedy images and the relatively slow narration. In true horror fashion, the trailer entrances with its flashes of light and darkness, which are able to show and hide. The combination of this hide and reveal increases the suspense level.
If you are a true Silent Hill fan then you may have already played the two games included in the HD Collection. Even if that is the case, you will be awestruck by the new teaser trailer that reveals a little to new fans but jog the memories of old ones, while still provoking a new sense of excitement. With only thirty seconds of trailer, there is still room for surprises. Of course, fans both old and new are aware that Silent HD Collection is about bringing back classic titles from the franchise into the world of high definition graphics. For old fans, glimpses of the new graphics through the thirty second trailer may be enough.
