* StoryDifficultySetting: The "Beginner" difficulty setting essentially disables the combat , allowing players to, according to the manual, "enjoy the storyline, drama and puzzles of ''Silent Hill 2'' without fighting". It doesn't remove monsters altogether, but it makes them so weak that even a single bash with the plank is enough to kill one.

Added DiffLines:
* NonindicativeName: The track "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6LB7LZZGpkw Theme of Laura]]" has nothing to do with Laura but rather it is the main theme of ''Silent Hill 2''.

A little formatting clean-up, correcting a few inaccuracies
* ChekhovsGun: Angela's knife, which James obtains after the cutscene in the Blue Creek Apartments, is ''sort of'' a Chekhov's gun. [[spoiler:Frequently looking at this item in the inventory and allowing James' health to get low will result in the (implied to be canonical) "In Water" ending, in which James commits suicide. ''Sort of'' because, though the knife isn't used in the actual act, it is implicated in suicidal ideation.]]

* CrusadingWidower: James being a particularly dark example; ''his'' single-minded fixation on the search for his dead wife is a result of the fact that [[spoiler: he killed her himself]]. In the implied canonical ending, this crusade culminates in [[spoiler: his suicide]].

Most fans and critics alike regard '''''Silent Hill 2: Restless Dreams'''''[[note]]''Restless Dreams'' is the North American subtitle of the game; ''Inner Fears'' is the European subtitle, and ''Poem of the Last Moment'' is the Japanese subtitle[[/note]], the second game in the ''Franchise/SilentHill'' franchise, as the series' apex for its intensely psychological storyline, its handling of metaphors and taboo topics, and the much-improved gameplay. The game also features MultipleEndings based on James' [[KarmaMeter general behavior]] throughout the story (rather than on specific choices at certain junctions). This game is also regularly regarded as one of the greatest games ever made ''period'', let alone in its genre.
