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: By this day and age, I'm pretty sure I don't have to explain why Silent Hill 2 is one of the scariest games ever. The game is FULL of symbolism and a perfect atmosphere that will leave you breathless. Akira Yamaoka did a amazing job on the games soundtrack, and the voice acting is top-notch.
Summary: (IN SILENT HILL 3 YOU START OUT IN ONE OF THE CREEPIEST DAMN AMUSEMENTS PARKS I'VE EVER SEEN. FROM THERE, YOU HAVE TO BEAR THE ON SLAUGHT OF THE WARPED, DEMENTED MONSTERS, BE WARY OF EVERY DOOR YOU ENTER. IT'S HAS THE BEST HORROR ATMOSPHERE IN THE SERIES...) THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME AND HAVE A GREAT DAY...
Summary: (SILENT HILL 2 HAS SUCCEEDED IN DELIVERING SOME THE THE MOST EERIE, HORRIFYING AND PSYCHOLOGICALLY DISTURBING EXPERIENCES IN VIDEOGAME HISTORY. PICK UP SILENT HILL 2, AND PREPARE FOR ONE OF THE BEST EXPERIENCES OF YOUR GAMING CAREER...) THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME AND HAVE A GREAT DAY...
Summary: Silent hill 2 is the best horror game ever, and one of the best games period. This review is for the greatest hits red label. Which is the best version of this amazing game. It has the bonus sub story from the Xbox version. Plus the presser sensitive controls from the black PS2 version. And it's much better then the awful HD remake. Which ruined the atmosphere by taking away the rusty, creepy look, and reducing the fog.
