this is an excellent game for all you horror fans out there looking for a good game of excitement and scary fun with a story line that may not be a master peice but it does get the job done. if you have played or thinking of playing this the best thing to do is to wait till oh say 11:00 at night with a friend who gets emotionally involved with a game as well as you do and play with no other noise in the house except you two makin noise. man thats a party thats worth it. its exciting to play a game thats not hard but challenging. at the start of the game you think you can take the whole game on and there wont be a scratch on ya but youll come to see once you get inside the apartments and your searching for a way to get to the teluca lake(your objective) youll love it when you try to open a door and it says the locks brocken and youll love it when there is no enemy creatures but wait till the finale. the boss you will encounter many many times is a guy called pyramid head. you dont see his weapon the first million times you see him but he actually has a 10 foot long sword so watch and enjoy this game.

this game is just great. when i picked it up, i didn't know what i was getting myself into. i popped it into my ps2 and started playing. about 1 hour into game play i was loving it and was getting freaked out. When walking through an abandoned apartments, hospitals and schools you hear very creepy sounds that make you look behind you to make sure no one is following you. its pretty scary because usually the only light you have is a flashlight which only light up a few feet in front of you. For me what made this game so fun is the puzzles. i love finding out the puzzles while killing creepy monsters. although the weapon system isn't the best, it still kills the monster just fine. besides this isn't a shooting game or anything, its adventure, survival horror. to conclude, this game owns, if you want a creepy game with a good story line, this will be it.

This game simply blew me away. While it is not the scariest game that I have ever played, even though it IS scary at some points, it has an amazing story, and the wacky camera angles, creepy enemies, and dark but beautiful music made me feel on edge the entire time. This is the first Silent Hill game that I have played, although I did watch someone do a playthrough of Silent Hill 1, and I will be playing Silent Hill 3 soon. Get this if you want a great story, and lots of scares.

Im not one for writing reviews on basically anything and this will prob be the first and last one i do. I love survival horror games. There are not many out there anymore and the Resident Evil games while still fun, have grown weak in their scare factor. Silent Hill 2 is the king of all scary games. I remembered when i first played it when i was 14. I had my friend reading me the walk through and i was doing the manual work. I would not play it by myself, only when he was there. 5 years later when I was 19, I purchased the game again. I sat alone in my apartment with the lights off and played the first 40 minutes. I finally got so scared that i turned the console off and never played it again. Now again 5 years later, I want to play it but i lost the game and have searched every game stop and back ally video game store within a 50 mile radius of me and have found nothing. The music, the poorly lit buildings, the fog, the monsters, the camera angles, the cut scenes, the story, and of course pyramid head. All make for a master piece. And the 2nd scariest game to me all time.....Clock Tower. Im sure no one has played that game because its from 1995 but look it up.

First off to explain the title, I started playing horror games after I played dead space so my review is less about how amazing this game is and more of a warning this game is not for everyone some of the puzzles require quite a bit of thinking, never the less that is half the fun, the graphic's were great for its time, but I still feel they could have pushed it a little more like they did with SH:3 and SH:4, that being said if you are looking for a shooter horror game or action horror game, then this is not for you, it is fun in its own unique way because it keeps you on edge and make you keep guessing whats around the corner, It makes you think outside the box and it really pushes you to your limits.

hands down, this is the best game ever made. when Silent Hill 1 came out in 99, I had a hard time getting into it at first but over time, it grew on me. When SH2 was released in 01, I officially became a fan. There's so much depth to this game. The characters have very deep emotional backgrounds (Eddie being my favorite) and the monsters were carefully designed to symbolize the protagonist' darkest fears/desires. I'm not sure how anyone can compare it to Resident Evil, it's nothing alike. If you appreciate passionate story telling, addictive gameplay and a game that has replay value to last for the next 10 years, then SH2 is the game for you.
Rated 10 out of 10 by zombiegod13 Most powerful gaming experience (for me at least).
Silent Hill 2 has what I find as the most intriguing and depressingly beautiful stories ever made into a gaming experience. I've played through this game about 6 times now and each time I have realized/noticed smaller, pertinent details about the game and its story that I've missed in previous playthrough's. Although the details have been small, they do help to further paint a portrait of a truly tragic story that leaves you feeling haunted even once the experience is done. My all time favorite game. I highly recommend. If you can deal with somewhat awkward controls and lots of darkness, you will not be disappointed... Well, I hope not at least, haha.
Rated 10 out of 10 by projectpat For me, its always like this.
So amazing, fantastic, I belive this is the best story ever told. The best graphics for its time and better graphics than any other game for 5 years. But thats not what is important, there is so much hidden meaning in this game its unbelievable. Play it you'll love the game, and check out online, research on how they made this game, so crazy. What else that is so good about this game is that is so real, meaning every character has their own type of syco logical pain. And is deplicted well, this may not make sense, I can't really explain this game to anyone until they play it, but please do, this game should never be forgotten.
