Let’s Play Silent Hill 2: Enhanced Edition – Part 1



Silent Hill 2 is one of my favorite games, but Sean has never played it. So after finishing our playthroughs of P.T. and Devotion, we’ve decided to keep the horror train rolling with our biggest playthrough yet, Silent Hill 2: Enhanced Edition—a labor of love from a group of modders and programmers that turns the bad PC version of the game into the best way to play. Join us for Part 1 of our playthrough below, as we ask the important question, “Who’s worse, Silent Hill 2‘s James Sunderland or Twin Peaks‘ James Hurley?”

It’s a shame that in 2021 playing Silent Hill 2 is a bit of a pain in the ass, with no modern legitimate way to acquire it, let alone run it. You either need to have an original version on an original console or you need to dive into the worlds of emulation and modding. Konami did release an official remaster on the PS3 and Xbox 360, but I’d say that is easily the worst way to play the classic horror game. What should have been the definitive version of Silent Hill 2 wound up being a buggy mess that wasn’t even based on a final build of the original game. Even if it’s a bit of a hassle, I’m so happy this modded version exists. Check out the Enhanced Edition‘s “Credit” page to learn more about the people that helped make it happen.
