Summary: I had high hopes for this game after I played and beat the first two, but this sequel could not continue the good name of Silent Hill. The overall game play is below average and the monsters are poorly done. Although the cut scenes were pretty cool, I was not impressed with this game.
Summary: Let me get something out of the way right NOW in the beginning of the review- it bothers me a little bit the masterpiece that is the original Silent Hill is *constantly* being pushed to the back so people can admire the sequel instead.
Summary: I've always heard my friends talk about the "creepy" Silent Hill series. I had always wanted to try a Silent Hill game out, but it seemed every retailer I went to just didn't seem to carry these games other than Silent Hill 4: The Room.
Summary: Don't get me wrong, this game is still quite creepy and has a nice little collection of monsters that will keep you on your toes, but the overall creepiness and gameplay was not nearly as good as the second game and I was a little disappointed after spending $40 on it (more than twice what I paid...
Summary: This game holds a spot very near and dear to my heart as being my favorite surrivival horror game (and I've played a lot of them), so instead of getting all mushy on you all, I'll mearly give you some of the basics.

However, while I love being scared, especially if it's a game that's scarring me, I also want there to be an element of entertainment, and that's where this...
Summary: DONT BUY... WASTE OF 50 BUCKS...DONT TAKE MY WORD....TRY A DEMO AND SEE FOR YOURSELF!!!.....Great graphics, boring storyline, bad controls, and the fog....oOoOoOoO that fog will get on your nerves!
Summary: An impregnable darkness lingers within the corridors of the haunted hospital, a faint yet disturbing crackling sound echoes close by, then the shuffling of feet. A silence wells over the man plodding through the blood dried halls.

Summary: Another grand title from the masters, Konami. Silent Hill 2 is a very absorbing, and disturbing survival horror-fest. The game starts off rather slow, but give it time, and it will grow and grow on you. A more effective use of 'fear-factor' over the Resi-Evil series is used with great effect..
