PS2 Review SUMMARY and SCORE
Euan Wallace  "This Game Is Amazing. I Used To Think That The Resi Games Were The Best Survival Horror On Ps2, And I Had Never Played The 1st Silent Hill Game. After Completing The Game The First Thime I Instantly Stareted Playing It Again On A Harder Setting With The Aim Of Getting A Different Ending. This Has Never Happend With Any Of The Resident Evil Game. After Completing It A Second Time I Loaded Up Resi 0 And It Just Wasnt As Good."

PS2 Review SUMMARY and SCORE
Ray Man  "This Game Is Depressing, Low, Sick, And You Know What? I Love It! It Sends Chills Down Your Spine, And I Am Gonna Say, Don't Listen To That Fool Who Said He Replaced It With 007. He Is An Idiot. Agent Under Fire Sucks Okay. Silent Hill 2 Has Been In My Library Since It's Release, And I Will Still Pick It Up And Play It. It Has Multiple Endings, And The New X-box Version Port (disguised As Greatest Hits) Makes It Worth It All Over Again. This Game Is Way Underrated, Mostly Because Of The Fact That It Has Less Shocking Scares, And More Of An Eerie, Long-lasting One That Follows You Throughout The Game. I Personally Like It Better. The Graphics Are Stunning (especially In The Newer Version) And I Will Proudly Place This Game In My Hall Of Fame. I Am Not Easy To Please With Games, But This One Did It For Me, Along With It's Prequal: Silent Hill. I Am Waiting For It's Upcoming Sequel: Silent Hill 3, And Cannot Wait. I Strongly Reccoment This Game To Survival Horror Fans! It Eats Resident Evil And Poops It Out!"

PS2 Review SUMMARY and SCORE
Josh  "This Game Is Terrible. I Purchased It Thinking That I Would Recieve A Great Game. I Had Read All Of The Great Reviews On This Game And Was Sadly Disappointed. The Game Has Too Much Fog, Controls Terribly, And Is Very Boring. I Did Manage To Trade It For James Bond 007 In Agent Under Fire, Which Is Much Better. I'd Even Consider Resident Evil Over This Pathetic Game, But That's Just My Opinion. Maybe It's Better Than I Think. Maybe..."

Lyle Jackson  "By Many Reviewers, This Is A Completely Under-rated Game. This One Of, If Not The Best Game Around. The Plot Is Fantastic, But Is Mentally Disturbing.

This Game Is Officially Cool!"

PS2 Review SUMMARY and SCORE
Solid Snake Red  "The Graphics Are Amazing, Nearly 100% Photo Realistic. The Game Play Is Awesome, And The Sounds Are Very Creepy. The Story Is Riviting And Frightening. The Downside To It, Is That There Isn't Alot Of Monsters, To Fight. Like 8 Monster Characters In All. But The Riddles And The Things To Find Make Up For It. Put I Wish There Was A Machine Gun In The Game To Go Crazy, When Things Go Slow. But Over All I've Had The Game Since It Came Out And I Am Still Playing It. Sorry To Say, I Had To Change My Girlfriends Diapers A Few Times. So This Game Is A Diffinate Must Have For The Ps2."

PS2 Review SUMMARY and SCORE
Tok Ish  "I Bought This Game Last Week, But Didn't Get A Chance To Try It Until Yesterday, Because You Need An Original Ps2 Controller. All I Had Was A Psone Controller. Anyway, I Only Played It For Like 2 Hours, But I Was Scared Stiff. I Sat In A Dark Room, With The Speakers On At Full Speed. I Kept Turning Around To Look For Creatures; It Sounds Like Somebody's Following You All The Time. You Actually Get Surround Sound From Two Speakers! This Game Is Absolutely Great! And I Say This After Only 1 Day Of Playing.."

Adam Cook  "Oh......wow. Without A Doubt, This Is One Of The Best Games I Have Ever Played, Right Up There With Goldeneye And Red Alert. The Graphics Are As Slick As Can Be, The Sound Is Awesome, Add In The Creepiest Storyline I Have Ever Experienced, And You Have A Pant Wettingly Good Game. Everything In Silent Hill 2 Is Almost Perfect, From The Locales Into Which You Stumble, To The Strange Characters You Meet, Not To Mention The Warped Monsters Which Haunt Your Every Move. I'm Presently Playing It Through For The Second Time, And It's Still As Fresh As The Day I First Tore Off Its Cellophane Wrapper. The Next Two Weeks Are Just Gonna Fly By."

The Places You Go Throught, The Monsters You Meet, The Puzzles, The Background Music, The Screts, They All Become To One Excelent Terrifying Horror Game. It Is Scary, You Can Count On It! It's A New World In Your Bedroom, Study Or Livingroom. Let Fear Take You In Every Second Of Silent Hill 2..."

{billabong386}  "Most Defintely One Of The Most Terrifying Games Of Its Time. I Agree With The Other Reviewers, If You Have A Big T.v. With Surround Sound, Turn Out The Lights And Get Ready To Be Frightened. Great Graphics Along With A Intriguing Story Line. I Think A Second Vacation To Silent Hill Is Just What The Doctor Ordered."

PS2 Review SUMMARY and SCORE
Godfrey Jones  "An Amazing Game All-round. Instead Of Telling You Every Little Thing About The Plot I Found Out That I Had To Play Through The Game 2-3 Times Before You Can Truly Understand The Other Characters. The First Time Through You Will Get Confused And Ask" Why Is That Character In The Game?" But The More You Think About It The More You Understand Why.

The Only Flaw Is The Battle-system How Easy All The Enemies Can Be ( Just Turn Out The Light) And They Cant See You, So Hack Away! :)

Excellent Game Very Scary. I Thought Silent Hill 1 Was Great As Well But The More Real The Game Looks The Easier It Is To Get Scared. So I Say Bravo. Best Game Yet!"

PS2 Review SUMMARY and SCORE
Jeffrey Lopez  "I Admit It! I Was Scared, But Just For A Second. (cough) Reminiscent Of The Mtv Show Fear, Sh2 Is Guaranteed To Make You Shiver. Although The Plot Is Somewhat Sketchy, The Overall Gameplay And Experience Is Top Notch.

I'm Not Sure How Many Times I Walked Into A Room, Only To Flee Madly After Hearing The Impending Doom In The Music And Seeing The Utter Darkness! The Blend Of Chilling Sound Affects, Haunting Music, And Macabre Landscape Makes Sh2 One Of The Best In It's Genre."

Ryan Miller  "This Is Perhaps One Of The Most Suspenseful Games I Have Ever Played. Play It On A Big Screen, High Definition Television With Surround Sound... In A Dark Room.... By Yourself... If You Dare. The Lighting And Sound Effects Alone Create A Sense Of Terror Through The Player, Let Alone The Plot And Story Line That Are Extremely Creepy. I Rented This Game But Plan To Buy It."
