Silent Hill

Silent Hill 2 – Review

There is a quote by Stephen King in reference to Stanley Kubrick's adaption of his horror novel, The Shining. When asked what he thought of Kubrick's approach to the genre he said "I think he really wants to make a movie that will hurt people." I cant imagine a more relevant and concise statement to sum up the approach of Silent Hill 2, Konami's most recent take on the "survival horror" sub-genre made immortal (for better or worse) by Capcoms infamous Resident Evil series.

Silent Hill 2 – Second Opinion

That the adventure is crafted as much by the mind of the player as by the developers of the game elevates Silent Hill 2 past its outdated mechanics and earns it a place as the most fitting representative of the survival-horror genre.

Silent Hill 2

Game Description: Silent Hill 2 pushes the boundaries of horror. Return to the dense fog and frightening darkness of the eerie, haunted town of Silent Hill to face new enemies with a new set of terrifying weapons. Features enhanced weather, gore and visual expressions with a soundtrack presented in dramatic Dolby Surround.
