James Sunderland has just arrived in the town of Silent Hill after receiving a letter apparently sent from his late wife, Mary. The letter states that she is waiting for him in their "special place", the town of Silent Hill. Determined to discover the origin of this strange letter, James travels to Silent Hill to search for his wife who should no longer exist, only to soon realize that the town no longer resembles the peaceful place from his memories.

Silent Hill 2 was positively received by the audience and critics. Within the month of its release in North America, Japan, and Europe, over one million copies were sold, with the greatest sales in North America. English-language critics praised the atmosphere, graphics, story and monster designs of Silent Hill 2. It appeared on several critics' top lists for its story and use of metaphors, psychological horror and taboo topics.
