Summary: Silent Hill 2 is the second best game in the series, behind 3. It has a decent story, great atmosphere, and amazing soundtrack. A must play for survival horror fans, and its graphics on PC still hold up to other games today.
Summary: Silent Hill 2 is a spinoff in the silent hill franchise and ultimately falls short of the magic of the two games it falls between. The storyline is a bit dull at times, and clunky controls hold it back. The atmosphere is not scary like Resident Evil or even other games in the series. The PC port performs poorly at times jumping from 60 fps to 30 fps on high end PCs.
A very well done re-instantiation of Silent Hill 2 with plenty of extras for the veteran of the original version.

Summary: Silent Hill 2: Greatest Hits is a treat for me, as an extreme fan that played the original version of SH two. This version has upgraded graphics and an extra story. I would suggest that one play the original version of two prior to this one, there are some subtle differences in the game other than just the graphics that I think makes the original a bit different. For playing the Silent Hill series: I use a dedicated audio digital analog converter: the tda1541.
SH2 is an upgrade from the original, but the kinks and randomness are still frustrating as all Hell. And f*** that constant mist

Summary: Wonderful. Bought it for my girl, got her hooked on the silent hill series. Now, we've got a ps2, and she's shins deep in sh4. Good show.The constant, pervasive, and just plainly perverse in its sadistic obstruction of the gamer's view, sh2 mist is as confusing and as annoying as anything in a video game can possibly be.Creepier than the first, however, and I am so down w that.
Summary: Getting back into the groove of the anything horror genre at this time in my life. I started playing this game but never finished it. Now 10 years later, I'm back and revisiting the game and now its scarier than ever before. Hooked it up to some surround sound, and almost pissed my pants. Enough said. Buy the game!
Summary: any comment that's new under the sun for silent hill 2? nope. it still is the best psychological adventure thriller out there, that leaves its marks on your psyche and makes you think of itself even years and years later. a true rare gem of a storytelling..
