About This Game
Silent Hill 2 is a survival horror video game developed by Team Silent and published by Konami in 2001 for the PlayStation 2. It is the second game in the series of the same name that is about a mysterious town called Silent Hill. Although it is a sequel to the first Silent Hill, the game does not follow the events of that title and takes place on an unspecified date between the first and third stories.
Silent Hill 2 focuses on a new character, James Sunderland, who travels to town after receiving a letter written by his late wife Mary, saying that she is waiting for him at his “special place” in Silent Hill. The game uses a third-person perspective, with various camera angles based on map areas and spaces, whether open or closed.
