The game turned out to be as atmospheric and interesting as the first part. With improved graphics, sound effects and gameplay features. Still, in the second part there was more freedom of action. The main character was James Sunderland, who received a letter from his wife Mary, who disappeared some time before the start of the main events of the game. In the letter, she asked him to come to the resort town of Silent hill. The gameplay consisted of solving riddles, finding necessary items, exploring locations and confronting monsters.
