Silent Hill 2 is a Japanese video game of the horrors of survival and the action of Squad Silent that is released by Konami. It was released in the United States on September 24, 2001, three days later in Japan and the same year in Europe on November 23 2001. Later on, Microsoft Windows and Xbox released the game. This game is the second part of the Silent Hill series Chronologically, but the past of Silent Hill 2 is almost unrelated to the first title. Fifty people have worked for two years in the development of the video game. An updated high-definition edition of Silent Hill 2 by Hijinx Studios was released on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on March 20 2012.
Silent Hill 2 exists in a fictional universe somewhat like the truth, where it intersects with another alternate planet full of monsters every day. The main character is James Sunderland, who receives a letter from his friend, Mary, who died a while before the game. She tells him in the letter to travel to the resort of Silent Hill.
As James arrives at his home, he discovers a mysterious woman called Mary. She is his wife’s nearly identical double. At last, he understands that much of his experiences are self-disappointment. The gaming includes solving puzzles, discovering the essential items, visiting locations, interacting with the main character and monsters.
Reviewers generally praised the game and ten respected publications provided the highest score. Many reviewers commended the environment and complexity of the story, which consists of passion, hatred, destruction, crime and retribution, stupidity and taboo subjects such as sexual abuse and incest. According to a review, the score is one of the strongest in video games history.
