A deviation and gigantic step up from the first game, Silent Hill 2 is a masterpiece in psychological horror. James Sunderland is the troubled soul we control in this title. It’s a harrowing journey both physically and mentally, as James suffers emotional torment in a foggy and rusting world filled with horror. It begins when he returns to the “special place” his late wife speaks of through a post-mortem letter she sends him, with the following story being simply incredible. The combat is stiff and awkward, but the game deserves to be praised as one of the greatest ever made.
