“A monster of a sequel.”
90/100 – Game Informer

About This Game



In Dead Space™ 2, you join Isaac Clarke, the Systems Engineer from Dead Space, as he wakes up three years after the horrific events on the USG Ishimura. The Ishimura was a Planetcracker-class starship besieged by grotesque reanimations of its dead crew, known as “Necromorphs.”

After unearthing a strange artifact known as the Marker, Isaac finds himself on the Sprawl, a giant space station in orbit around Saturn. Unable to remember how he got here and plagued with demented visions of his dead girlfriend Nicole, he must survive another nightmarish outbreak of Necromorphs as he fights his way towards an answer he hopes will end all the chaos.

Key Features:

  • Tear through space with full 360 degree movement.
  • Wield a set of devastating tools to bring the terror to space. Impale Necromorphs into the walls with the Javelin, use improved telekinesis to turn limbs into deadly weapons, plant powerful dismembering trip mines, or create a hull-breach to suck a group of monsters out into space.
  • Fire up Isaac’s suit boosters to rocket around in zero gravity like never before. Explore the depths of the Sprawl and encounter new weightless combat and physics-based puzzles with full 360⁰ movement.

If it moves, Kill it
If it doesn't move, Kill it
If you have no ammo and it's running to you, Stomp the ♥♥♥♥ out of it.

Reliving the horror in advanced mode.
Better graphics, better effects, better voice acting (hey you can now see Isaac's face a lot more often and hear him having conversations!), more gore, more ways to kill and die, and an absolutely amazing script.
A worthy sequel.

Absolutely recommended.

10/10!

This game follows up with the first one!
If your thinking: "Can i skip the first one?", then the answer is: "NO!"

The storyline and game play + experience need to be filled!

I enjoyed this so much, that i played on every single diff. even more than i remember.

Dead Space 2: an awesome addition to the Dead Space trilogy, that adds in a whole new range of necromorphs (monsters) as well as suits, weapons and enviroments. It also add the 'multiplayer feature' were you can play online as necromorphs, or the titan station police team in an ultimate show-down!!! Most certainly worth the money. 5/5 stars

One of the best games I have ever played, let alone a sequel that completely belittles its predecessor. The envionrment is always changing, there are a good amount of enemy types, the game never feels like a grind, there are plenty of surprises, and you feel like a badass in the engineering suit. The mix of horror and action is perfect. Graphics and performance are both very good, and you won't need anything more than a low-mid range video card to play the game smoothly.

I didn't think I'd be saying this before starting this game, but this earns a solid 95/100 from me. The first Dead Space is still a great and recommended play, especially for getting a full picture of the story, but this title is essential survival/action horror.

An admirable improvement from an already stellar survival-horror adventure, Dead Space 2 hits all the right notes, from creepy atmosphere to satisfying upgrades. Some might call the formula stale at this point, but for those who want it, the energy levels rarely drop.

Dead Space 2 is much better than it's ♥♥♥♥ty-optimised predecessor so I strongly recommend it to anyone who couldn't complete Dead Space 1 anywhere but on youtube. All in all it's a pretty decent shooter pierced with some sudden encounters but it does not fulfill all requirements to be called a horror game. Closer to the ending you wish those bloody monster fights would stop or become at least less frequent.

P.S. One eye is fine too!

I bought the PS3 edition a year or two before purchasing the PC ported game. After worrying for hours how it would play, smoothly or choppy, on my ASuS laptop...

The game worked beautifully and dare I say even faster on here. The game has a lovely story as always, and after quitting the PS3 edition because of hatred to the controller gameplay, I am happy to say I will perservere and finally beat this god damn game. Here's the pros and cons:

PROS:

- Interesting Story
Isaac Clarke has been admitted to a psychiactrics ward where he must escape. But beyond there, it's a terrifying nightmare that pushes your tolerance to the ultimate limits.

- Great Graphics
Even for the worst computers, the graphics really stand out and work well for the game. The characters, being the most important in terms of detail, are stunning to say the least.

- Weapons
Every survival game needs weapons. Well, except for Outlast™ and a few select others. Anywho, the weapons really stand out and are unique. They a small part consists of makeshift weapons, such as a surgical lazer and fire extinquisher. the rest are things like pulse rifles and spear guns, which are really cool as well.

- Save, Shop, and Store Stations
This game would be horrifically hard without the features you find repeating in the areas of your journey. These are of course the save station, the item shop, the bench, and the numerous stasis chargers you find. The save station is pretty self explanitory, being where you can save your game. The item shop is where you can store items, buy items, and sell items. It's really needed for a game of this stature. The bench is useful too, giving you a place to upgrade armor and weapons, kinda like the enchanting table from Minecraft™.

CONS:

- Glitches
Every game has glitches, it's unavoidable. Even then, this goes in the list. I haven't run into many, but a few have been tht I found enemies stuck in walls and scenery, and falling through elevators happened on one rare occasion. Even then, it doesn't break immersion and this isn't that bad. It's actually kinda.. funny.

- Multiplayer
I know whatcha thinking; "Dood. How cud multiplayar b bad!?". Well, it's not the basic idea, the gameplay, or the entire thing itself. It's the lack of people. If you want to buy this game, don't do it for the sake of multiplayer. It's not going to work if you randomly match, and for that you should get a console release. But if you REALLY wanna play multiplayer, get a large group of friends (4-8) and then you're set.

I'll update this as I continue playing. Right now, the rating it a 8/10.

Just as the first, its fantastic. If you enjoyed the first one its definitly worth buying this one and playing it. The story continues from the first one and has new weapons and play styles.

Too easy.
I completed the game on hard difficulty and of course I died, but wild there was no pain. I was expecting more.
Horror part was interesting, but weakly.
Cool story with graphics and combat system.
8/10 play with a gamepad
