1) INTRODUCTION:

This is my spoiler-free walkthrough for Silent Hill 2, you can find a complete 
walkthrough here but not a detailed one. You just find here what to do without 
spoilers, so you can't see what is going to happen in the story. 
I hope you enjoy the game.

For the people who don't know: A spoiler-free walkthrough contains a full
walkthrough, but doesn't contain anything that has spoilers in it (Things that
tell a thing about the storyline). The only spoilers can be names and 
place names. You also won't find full solutions of puzzles, just to let you 
enjoy the puzzles in the game.
