Summary: The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time Super Mario 64 and then of course SILENT HILL 2: RESTLESS DREAMS!! One of the most beautiful love stories ever created. And of course THE scariest game of all time. I truly am speechless when it comes to this game. It was just simply brilliant. The characters, monsters, and the score just added to the already great game. Highly recommend it. 10/10, Two-Thumbs WAY UP, BUY IT NOW, you won't regret it.
Hauntingly detailed, mentally unsettling, but just a bit too short...

Summary: My initial fears that this was just an overhyped Resident Evil clone were quickly put to rest - although the two games share a genre and pieces of a control scheme, their personalities couldn't be further apart. Where the first three Resident Evils focused on the cheesier, blood-n-guts style with a hint of puzzle solving in the name of variety, Silent Hill 2 concentrates much more on the unknown, the unexplained and the psychologically disturbing.
Summary: Now This is my Genera !! This game offers Everything In aspect Of a Horror Genera Type of game should be !!! I love this game played it for years and With a Total of 6 thats right 6 Different Endings The Last One Espically For the X Box ONLY I would Recommend this game and Then some !! If anyone is looking for a scare or think they can survive in Silent Hill , Welcome, This game is for you !! The Monsters And Graphics Have been Hyped Up of Course for the X box only !!
The most solid example of SH: Same mood and imagery, but greatest, most coherent story.

Summary: THE SHORT: Less gory and satanic than the first game, but with a great story- the most coherent and understandable in the series, and with a fantastic twist at the end. 5 possible endings, great atmosphere. Sometimes frustrating (but adjustable) puzzle difficulty but fairly easy fighting. THE LONG: The original game was great- similar to Resident Evil but unique enough to stand on its own, the game was dark, disturbing and satanic.
Summary: Silent Hill 2: Restless Dreams is different than many other of the series. Silent Hill 3 tries to catch more intensity, trying to catch the players attention and makes them want to play more. Silent Hill 4 was just scary and was very dramatising. Silent Hill 2 caught drama and made a story so good it is still in people minds and hearts today.
Fun as Resident Evil? Yes. Creepier? You bet your a$$!!!

Summary: Lets face it. Resident Evil isn't really as creepy as we would want it to be. Or is it not THE creepy we want it to be? It's the cool creepy. The kind of creepy we like to talk about and can define. Silent Hill, however, is scary creepy. The kind of thing that makes us flip on (or even off) the lightswitch. The game itself begins with a quite creepy happening. As you walk a trail the sound of somebody following you is heard. Semi-creepy.
Summary: This game was really good. This was the first time I played a game of this type. The controls were a little tricky, but that was the 3d control option, change it to the 2d control option, it is a lot easier. The graphics were great, the sound was right on the money, it can be very spooky at times. For the low price now, its worth getting, trust me...
Summary: I first heard about Silent Hill on the school bus when a kid said "dude, have you played Silent Hill 2? It's scary!". Confusing it with another game, I told him it's not. Fast forward to 2 years later when my freind brought it over to my house. He said "Pop it in and s*** your pants". I started to play and thought I wasn't freaked out until I walked up to an abandoned car and a zombie-like monster crawls out from below. Just my first taste at what is the horrifying...
Summary: Okay, as cheesy as the the title for this review may sound, it's about as plain as I can put it. Those of you who are Resident Evil addicts, or other such video games with contrived and faulty storylines/plots, well...this review isn't for you. For those of you interested in renting or purchasing the game, I highly recommend it, especially if you're the type of individual who isn't spooked easily: If the music itself doesn't give you the "willies" or grate on your...
