Silent Hill 2 is the second installment in the Silent Hill survival horror series. The game was released in late 2001 on the Sony PlayStation 2 and was ported to the Xbox later that year and Windows the following year.

While the game is staged in the series' namesake town, it is not a direct sequel to the events and characters of the first Silent Hill game, and is staged at an undetermined date between it and the third game. This entry takes insight into a new character, James Sunderland, who enters the town after receiving a letter written by his late wife Mary, saying she is waiting for him in their "special place" in Silent Hill.

The game follows James Sunderland, who arrives in Silent Hill after receiving a mysterious letter from his wife, Mary, who died from an illness three years ago; the letter beckons him to their "special place", although James can only assume its meaning. As James explores Silent Hill, he encounters others searching the town. The player's actions determine the (non-canonical) ending to the game.
