    Silent Hill 2 has an excellent story, and remains unbeatable in the horror genre, even if it makes a few mistakes.

    Silent Hill 2 Restless Dreams is one of the scariest games I have ever played. The Survival Horror franchises first started off with Alone in the Dark, but got put into life by Resident Evil. Resident...

    The definitive horror experience.

    In the world of video games, there is nothing more satisfying than turning off all the lights, turning the sound up, and losing yourself in Silent Hill. One of the most memorable moments in all of my ...

    Silent Hill 2: Restless Dreams is one of the best Silent Hill games yet! While the controls take a little while to get used to, once you figure out the control scheme, the game handles really well. ...

    7.7? This is one of the greatest games that I've ever played.

    Rated on October 07, 2009 by TC_Squared

    I'm a bit of a late bloomer in the Silent Hill fan-club. I played through Silent Hill Origins a few months ago, Silent Hill 1 shortly after it was added to the playstation network, and Silent Hill 2 l...

    Silent Hill 2 is a great horror experience with enough layers to keep your mind thinking long after it has been put away

    Rated on September 05, 2006 by astro64th
