Silent Hill 2 pushes the boundaries of horror. Return to the dense fog and frightening darkness of the eerie, haunted town of Silent Hill to face new enemies with a new set of terrifying weapons. Features enhanced weather, gore and visual expressions with a soundtrack presented in dramatic Dolby Surround. Made in USA.
With its Poe-like atmosphere, dense fog, pitch-black hallways, and a cryptic letter from a dead wife, Silent Hill 2 promises to surpass the paranoia created by its predecessor, Silent Hill.
The sequel opens with James Sunderland, the series' average joe protagonist, and a mysterious message that reads, "Silent Hill, our sanctuary of memories. I'll be waiting for you there." More puzzling is that the note is signed by Mary, his deceased wife.
James sets out for Silent Hill hopeful that he'll find a trace of Mary. After an aborted attempt by car, James plunges into the dank fog and embarks on his quest by foot. Enter Angela, a woman who bears a striking resemblance to Mary, and who also beckons him with another curious message. It seems James can't go back; strange things are happening in Silent Hill.
Silent Hill 2 offers 10 new formidable foes, plenty of puzzles, and bone-chilling gameplay. The sequel's new story and characters promise to thrill and terrify. The visual and sound effects are amazingly detailed and macabre, and, if you're playing on a system with surround sound, you may find yourself keeping the lights on.

games ever made.
You play as James Sunderland, whose wife Mary has
just died 3 years ago or so it seems. James receives
a letter from his dead wife asking him to meet her in
the sleepy resort town of Silent Hill.
The game plays just like the original Silent Hill
but the graphics and sound are much better and
so is the gameplay.
It is much more scarier and atmospheric as well
esp. when you are exploring abandoned buildings
and Silent Hill outside at nightime.
The enemies are really creepy and scary. There
are items to find throughout the games such as
health drinks, first aid kits, many weapons and
ammo for them as well as melee weapons which
don't require ammo.
The town of Silent Hill has many areas to explore though
on a somewhat liner but thrilling path. Areas include
various outdoor locations, an apartment complex, an
abandoned hospital, Silent Hill Historical Society,
Tulca Prison, The Lakeview Hotel and a few other
locations including nightmare/alternate versions
of said areas and locations. You also have a map
but can only see it if you have access to light or a
James has a flashlight he will get eventually as well
as a radio. The flashlight is good for exploring in dark
places and the radio emits static when enemies are
The Boss fights are not that hard except on hard difficulty
level. On Normal and Easy they are a piece of cake almost.
The storyline has some interesting characters in it but
it is hard for some people to understand and requires
reading some online material from Silent Hill websites
in order to understand.
There are multiple ending for people that play through
the game multiple times in different ways as well as some
bonus weapons like a chainsaw and hyperspray when playing
the game a 2nd time and beyond.
The cutscenes and voice acting are well done throughout
All in all this is a good but short (took me 15 hours to beat
first time through, second and third times and beyond only
6 hours) that is really creepy, scary and has an intense
atmosphere about it.
If you like Silent Hill games or Resident Evil ones even
Alan Wake I recommend this game.
this game is amazing. the story, soundtrack, sounds, gameplay, designs of environment and characters, etc. are all the best ive ever come across in a video game, no exaggeration. when i first started playing i couldn't stop, even when i had important things to do. so far out of the horror video games ive played, this is by far the scariest. at one point in the game i actually half-screamed, which is something i never do.
the replay value, for me at least, is high as well. most of the time with games that tell a story, once you beat it thats the last you'll ever play it, even with games with multiple endings. this game has multiple endings, but most of the replay value comes from learning more about the story. the story isnt told to you in a straightforward manner and you have to think about what is going on.
another thing i love about this game is that although its filled with various monsters/creatures, it still seems very real. the characters have realistic personalities and flaws. i could say something about the details of the monsters/creatures, but dont want to spoil any of the story whatsoever.
i beat the first silent hill and moved on to silent hill 2 with no problems. now this week i've been playing silent hill 3 and while its a great game as well, all i can think about is playing silent hill 2 again. if you missed out on playing this game for a couple of years like i did, don't wait any longer. if this is your type of game you should love it.
