is an updated version of of Silent Hill 2
. It contains all of the content of the original version and adds several pieces of new content. The most significant is a new short scenario called Born from a Wish
, where players take control of Maria from her first moments right up to where she first appears in the main game. Also included is a sixth ending to the main scenario and a minor feature that allows the player to turn off the graphical effect, which makes the game look like it was shot on cheap film stock.

The Press Says
Every time you begin a replay game, a number of things will be added and/or changed.
One of the lesser known ones, is a magazine that appears at Woodside Apt. building's room 205 (where you find the flashlight).
The text changes every time, and disguised as the advice for the heart
kind of tabloid, it actually offers hints on how to achieve another one of the endings of the game. Not very
clear hints, that's true, but hints anyway.
