The love of SH2 doesn't surprise me. I wonder, though, if you were somehow able to poll people who like Silent Hill but aren't necessarily fanatics, what kinds of answers you'd get. I'm a fan of the series, but I don't live and breathe it. Hardcore fans tend to sway polls their way due to not their numbers, but their vocality.
I'm huge on SH3, and strongly dislike SH2, which I found poorly paced and largely uninteresting. I don't like James as a protagonist, I don't care about the "dead wife" story at all, and I don't like the level design, which I just find annoying. I do, however, like the subscenario where you play as Maria and explore a haunted mansion. I liked the setting, the pacing, the level design, and the plot better.
