Graphics - The graphics in this game are very well detailed. The atmosphere of the game portrays so much isolation, decay, pain, and darkness. The creatures in this game are just as disturbing and are more of a subconsious threat than physical one in the game.
Controls - The controls in this game are wrather lacking. It is hard to aim correctly with what ever melee weapon you are carrying. Then when used it is slow and awkward.
Sound - The sound and soundtrack in this game is just amazing. It's the sound and soundtrack in this game that gives SH2 its disturbing atmosphere and fear. It's the sound that will give the player paranoia.
Gameplay - Overall, the game itself is wrather stressful since you have to figure out the puzzles and hints yourself. If you acquire a guide online though you can get through the game wrather easier.
"You said you would take me back there someday, to our special place." That is the sentence that I think of when I remember this game. Play the game and you'll see why it's so important. Now back to the review. First off this game is scary as heck. I mean the creatures are creepy and especially the Pyramid Guy. The graphics and sound of the game really put you in a "want to get you pants scared off" mood. The fog is the highlight of the game. It make is to were you can't even see your enemy until they're right in front of you. The riddles and puzzles in the game are fun and are sometimes are to figure out. But that is what make this game so good. Game time is a little on the short side, but every second of the game is unforgettable as well is the ending of the game. Play this game you will thank yourself for doing it and will probably thank me too.
