Are these definitely the achievements? I checked that link and it has no source for where they got the list. Oh well, if this is it then it is going to be a bit challenging on some things.

The website has never been incorrect, so I'd be very surprised if it turns out to be wrong. They're basically a French version of Xbox360Achievements.org

That first one on the list looks like a PS3 platinum... How would that work on Xbox? Also, Extra level for puzzle difficulty? Was I missing something from SH2 or is this new?

Yeah, sometimes they do a copy & paste achievement list and keep the 'ALL' achievement in there. They did it with Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker HD for sure and it does annoy me, but it's not the end of the world really.

And I think, if you completed Silent Hill 2 on all three riddle difficulties, it added a fourth one.

I didn't get the MGS HD collection. Do you get the ALL achievement for getting every single other achievement? Kinda like you get Serah's Gamerpicture in FFXIII for getting ALL achievements in the game.

And can someone confirm the puzzle thing? I loaned my game out to my cousin so I can't check...

Yup, once you unlock the other 49 achievements, the 50th achievement will unlock. Only Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker HD of the collection has this though. In case you don't know, it had two separate achievement lists:

Metal Gear Solid HD = 50 achievements worth 1000G across two games, MGS2 and MGS3.

MGS PEACE WALKER HD = 50 achievements worth 1000G for Peace Walker alone.

Silent Hill HD has two ALL achievements, but it'll work in the same basic way, so when you unlock a certain amount of achievements, it'll unlock one extra one ^_^

Acquire the Green Hyper Spray.
Fun fun..... I just looked this up, and it required a 10* playthrough. I was hoping the game wouldn't require that since I have never done it :(

That is not going to be something I will be enjoying. It is very hard to get a 10 Star Ranking. Hopefully they fixed it whereas originally if you got the Green Hyper Spray,, if you didn't get a 10 Star Ranking on your very next playthrough it went away.

It's true. I did it back on the PS2.

Huh finally some SPEED-RUN achievements (Warp Speed, Adrenaline Junkie). Nice. Also "Playing on the Edge"& "Makes My Head Hurt" are looking interesting haha.

Not to mention the "Kill the boss this fast" achievements. Thanks but no thanks...I'd rather stick to Silent Hill: Downpour & RE ORC after I've completed ME3.

Yeah I thought this was an easy list until I saw that. Thankfully, you don't have to 10 star Silent Hill 3 from the looks of it so it is just SH2. Looks like an 4/10 for 975 and a 8 or 9/10 for 1000.

The only thing that makes 10 star easier is the Dog Ending, but even still it is very hard. Kind of like the Dead Space 2 Hard to the Core, but way way harder since Dead Space 2 was pretty easy and it only took me 1 or 2 restarts to get to the first place I used a save (and there was no time limit, item requirements, or a counter of enemies I need to kill in certain ways).

I suppose that is one way of looking at the 10 star though ... if you can get to the first place you should save (hospital for SH2) then you don't have to repeat the first part of the game assuming you did everything right. The second save should probably be around the Eddy fight so once you get there you are kind of home free.

One way to think of it is that you are not doing one hard run but rather 3 difficult sections of the game, and once you do one right you never have to go back and do it again.

I've never heard of the 10 star ranking in SH games before but from what I've read so far... I'm a liiittle bit scared now :(

and I thought the dog tags in MGS 2 was already hard.

This is the part in SH2 where you have to row toward the lighthouse, right? I remember it took me forever, but I hadn't figured out which way to go yet. So I assume this breaks down to heading toward the light in the fog and mashing the row controls.

Anyone remember how the different endings work? Will it be easy enough to drop saves throughout the game at the different triggers, without having to replay the whole game multiple times?

been waiting for this list for toooo long.

thought the achievements would be more vaired but whatever.

I hope you can put in the cheats in SH3 for the costumes without having to actually unlock them.

Perfect Achievement list! The SH3 ones for unlocking the saber beam and the costume brings back some memories from PS2! Oh, I can't wait!

A challenging list. I sense a broken controller already. Finish SH2 and 3 in under 3 hours? Finish both with only 2 saves? Finish both while receiving no more than 500 points of damage? Unless you're playing on the easiest of difficulties, they're quite brutal.

I've never played SH2 or SH3 so I have no idea what I'm up against but the list didn't sound that bad when I first looked at it.

Honestly a pretty easy achievement list. I wouldnt put the difficulty over 4/10. However, it will be time consuming due to multiple playthroughs of each game to get them all. Only semi difficult one is getting 10 stars which really isnt hard once you know the game well enough in what you can/cant do.

For the ones that seem hard, focus on only one per playthrough if you cant do a couple at once. (Do one runthrough focusing on not going over 500 damage, do another runthrough focusing on killing 75 enemies a certain way, etc.) Saving and reloading if you mess up is your friend. You can knock out the dont save more then twice/finish the game in under 3 hours easily at the same time as I remember doing speed runs of both game and easily coming in under 2 hours.

Found an old pic for SH3 results screen. I can't see how many saves there were though, since I lost my disc :( It's only 6.4 stars since I didn't fight anything in the game :p

Am i the only one hoping that you can only get one Ending Achievement per playthrough? i'd much rather have to work for it in this game instead of looking at everyone's list and seeing them get the all the ending achievements in a few days.

It's not like it takes a while to get through the games. As shown above, I beat SH3 in 1hr 40min lol. I also have a pic for Easy difficulty where it took 2:12 to get Possessed ending. Right there, ~4 hours and you have 2 of the 3 endings in SH3, add in the hour long UFO ending playthrough, and you have all SH3 achievements in 5 hours!

Yeah i suppose that's true. I haven't played SH2 for about a decade though, and SH3 i hadn't even finished or played for quite a while so i have no idea how long it takes for the average player.

It's a decent list. Maybe a few more story-related achievements would have been nice. It's also weird that SH 3 has time limits on boss achievements, but not SH 2.

Instead, SH2 has an achievement for getting 10* in a single run. Seems balanced enough for me. Also, SH3 actually times how long the boss fights last, that is why.
