The game runs fine graphically, and the installation is smooth.
The sounds and cutscenes (not the movies) glitch more often than not however.

Silent Hill 2 does not support multi-core CPUs and hyperthreading, which is the cause of the looping sounds and freezing cutscenes. It does so on Mac and PC, so I expect Linux experiences that as well.

The only fix is to disable your CPU extra core and to disable hyperthreading - to do so on mac, you need to install Xcode for the App Store and the run the Instruments app from it. Go into Preferences in the Instruments menu, select CPU Usage, and disable hyperthreading, and limit core usage to 1. 
Then start your game and enjoy.

Do not forget however to change the CPU usage preferences back after you've finished playing Silent Hill 2, you might find that using a single core CPU is a bit sad to run modern day apps.
