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.

Dead Space 2 is one of my all-time favorites. It does storytelling in a way that a lot more games need to learn to do. Dead Space 2 foregoes most of the first game's insistence that it is a horror game in favor of another type of story that is more focused on atmosphere and storytelling.

You're Isaac. Isaac isn't a silent protagonist anymore, and Isaac isn't an everyman. You don't feel scared for you own life, you worry for Isaac's. This is Isaac's story, and the over-the-shoulder camera serves to emphasize that. You're a passenger in Isaac's story. There's no choices, there's no alternate paths. You're a witness to his story and it is your job to keep him alive.

Even if the story itself isn't amazing, the way it is told is something I have yet to see matched in any game.

Requires an EA account to play.

If you go AFK you get disconnected from EA servers.

Thanks EA.

Dead Space 2? More like Dead Space 1.5 because it's almost the same game.

Graphics and gameplay have had a minor tweak so it looks a little better and the controls are a little smoother but unfortunately the story follows almost the exact same path as the original.

PRO'S:
Good story
It's sick
Downright creepy in places
It's sick
Gore drenched
It's proper sick

CON'S:
More of a rip off of the 1st than new plot
A few too many cut sceens
Not as grim as the original

VERDICT:
Pick it up on Steam sale
Not a bad game but a little uninspired, so yeah, if you haven't played the original then DS2 is the (slightly) better game.

The sequal to the original Dead Space game is good if not better in almost every aspect. Dead Space 2 continues the story of Dead Space 1 except Isac Clark not stranded on a ship anymore he's stranded on a space station instead. Even better he suffers from a form of dementia plaguing his mind and threatens to kill him in the form of his old wife Nicole (Lovely isn't it). New characters are introduced in Dead Space 2 Nolan Stose who suffers from the same syptoms and dementia Isacc does, Tidman who is a complete dumbass, and Ellie who could be a better waifu for Isacc than Nicole. The horror and gameplay in Dead Space 2 has improved and is much better compared to the original with more horror( especially scences where Isac's mind interfers and displays Nicole), more action, and more Oh ♥♥♥♥ moments. There are more suits and more weapons in Dead Space 2 giving players more stuff to experiment and play with. The suits now have special attributes tied to them like 10% more health recieved from health kits and 15% percent more damage with certain weapons. There are even more different kinds of necromorphs to kill and loot from them is obtained by stomping and smashing them (because who dosen't like that). The religous group in Dead Space 1 makes a return here with thier own church on the space station and so does the government with their government sector. Dead Space 2 is a better version of the orignal and is a must own for people who have played Dead Space 1. I do not recommend buying this on its own, instead buy the Dead Space 1 & 2 bundle and experience the best of both worlds.

You can speed up the credits or slow them down with mousewheel.

1 point missing because you cannot skip them entirely.

Dead Space 2 is an awesome shoot em up action adventure game set in a space station filled with alien zombie like creatures. Also known as "Isaac Clarke Vs. Necromorphs 2: The Quest to Stop being Crazy".

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.
