Probably one of the worst, laziest ports of all time

I've only got Pandora Tomorrow so far because it was my favourite of the first two, but if this is the 'effort' theyve put in, then I wouldnt bother with this or the first one. 
Horrendous load times, bad graphics even for an HD update, terrible framerate, and A LACK OF INVERTING THE CONTROLS!! I mean HOW in this day and age do you not put that option in?? It was in the original version, so why take it out?!  
This is terrible shoddy work on Ubi's part, and doesnt even serve as a nostalgia piece, as theyve made the games worse!!  
Terrible, awful, barely playable in 2011. 
 
0/10, not even any points for effort, pure laziness, I hate it.

Oh god. Was incredibly looking forward to this when it finally comes to the 360. Will be mad disappointed. Sigh Ubisoft.

They didnt go back and edit any source code either, so the INCREDIBLY annoying thing where the game would autosave, only for you to walk a couple steps and Lambert fail the mission is still in. Pretty disgraceful tbh.

Man, what a bunch of lazy fucks. I was planning on picking this up, but not anymore.

Resident Evil 4 would like to have a word with you. Complaining about inverting controls... IT DOESN'T EVEN HAVE A MOUSE SUPPORT!

you mean the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions don't have mouse support? and that's surprising you? or did I miss the big sarcasm banner at the entrance?

@DeF: I think he's more likely talking about lazy ports than consoles.

No they didn't, because they just ported the PC versions. Quick and easy money machine.

well then, you probably should mention that since the HD remake just came out for consoles.

on topic: this is a real bummer since I was really anticipating the splinter cell HD versions since I have never played those games and didn't wanna hunt down the ps2/gcn/xbox versions... :/

@DeF: Yes, I suppose I should have made that clearer.

It's a shame they did this to fans. Really. I mean, how could you possibly get more lazy than that? 
 
TBH I don't really like the series (I prefer MGS (and so does the OP, as I can see from his username :D)), but I understand your disappointment

Chaos Theory doesn't seem all that awful. Which is good, since it's the only one I was interested in anyway.

I'm glad these are out in the states so that we can shed some more light on the omission of the invert option, then MAYBE Ubi will sort something out faster!!! I recall them saying something about it being months for a patch to be sorted out! MONTHS!!!!

So far this is a bigger letdown than Metallica and Lou Reed haha! :D

I've dealt with enough of Ubisoft's bullshit in the past to know what sort of games they actually give a shit for. Putting old games on a new system is never something they care about.

Looking forward to the quicklook (if that is still happening) because I want to see just how bad this release is. I have a soft spot for these games, and would have wanted to buy this collection, but now I'm not so sure.

Laziest port? You should try Splinter Cell: Double Agent for PS3. Any surprise that we're both complaining about UbiSoft games?
