    This is the scariest game I've ever seen! I love scary movies, but I can't find a movie that scares me anymore. This game scared me more than any move. And it doesn't just come straight out and scare you. It messes w... Read Full Review

    The only horror survival game to actually scare me.

    I bought Silent Hill 2 years ago when it was in a bargin bin at Gamestop. It was 9 dollars and it looked cool, so I got it and took it home. When I popped the game in I had no idea what to expect, because I had never pla... Read Full Review

    The best of the series next to Silent Hill 3

    I never got the chance to play Silent Hill 4, but I did enjoy Silent Hill 2 and 3 for the most part. The game is somewhat scary in its own rights. There is allot of interesting things going on all at once, and being able... Read Full Review

    Surreal and quite artful

    Very few games are as sensually stimulating as Silent Hil 2. On most aspects of the original game, SH2 has drawn from and improved. I still prefer SH1 because it's low-budget quality makes it a bit more charming and sp... Read Full Review

    Perfect

    This is such a great game. At first, you watch the starting video, and dive into the story, which makes you think: "This is probably like the rest of the horror games, I'll just get an axe and start cutting heads off" bu... Read Full Review

    Silent Hill is master in creating atmosphere in games however this game doesn't do as well as the others in the series

    The first Silent Hill I played was the third in the series. The third game got very dark at times, had an interesting and compelling story going through out it and offered a lot more variety in terms of scenery and gamep... Read Full Review

    While it offers some great ambience, the suspensful tone of Silent Hill 2 is undermined by its unimpressive gameplay.

    Silent Hill 2 is Konami’s first outing of their popular survival horror series on the Playstation 2. Although the game takes place in the titular haunted town, ensuring that gamers will recognize many of the locales, th... Read Full Review
