Summary: Silent Hill 2 is probably one of the bets survival horror 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.
Summary: Let's get this straight: This is psychological horror. Not blood-n-guts horror. This game serves up horror in the not knowing what's around the corner, what's on the other side of the door, what's making that noise, and what the hell was that? style.
Summary: Now my pros and cons may seem like I should have rated this game less than I did. The way I see it, though, is that I should not rate a game like this based on fun. This game is more of an experience. It's very atmosperic and creepy and it keep you interested in seeing what happens next.
Summary: This was the first Silent Hill game i ever played. infact, this game was so "disturbing" that i couldn't even get passed the apartment in a single rental. It wasn't until i rented it again that i managed to overcome just a little bit of the fear and move on further in the game, which i made it only...
Summary: After a while, i decided to rent this on the Xbox, after unable of beating it on the PS2. Funny, but this time i actually DID beat it on the Xbox for the 1st time. it was crazy seeing how much more i still had to go from the last spot of the Museum.
Summary: What I got out of this game is that it concentrates mostly on story, and the storyline is great. What you have to do is run around collecting keys and other items to enter new areas to unlock more of the story (videos). That's about it...
Quieter, slower, shorter, but deeper than the first

Summary: It doesn't hit you upside the head with a tackhammer like the first game, but draws you in quietly. Almost teases you with terror, if I can invent a crappy new phrase. Interaction with "friendly" NPCs is more emphasized than the first game, which slows down the pacing a bit but forces you to invest...
