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.

Suspenseful, atmospheric, and potentially frightening. With zero-g physics, adrenalin pumping fights, large maps, and a spine-tingling story full of "shocks" and deceivingly simple puzzles, DS2 delivers lots of "just one more minute" entertainment.

Is the next scare waiting to pop up around the corner, drop in behind you, or lull you into a false sense of calm? Get it, play it, but "relax"... it's just a game, afterall. ;)

Truely a great game. My favourite part was where you got to the zombie-children! Instead of shooting them to death, I just ♥♥♥♥♥ them! Great way to save ammo, and also great practice for when I drive around my white van! Thanks Dead Space 2!

In my mind this is my favorite game in the series. Dead Space 2 for the pc feels a lot more polished than Dead Space it fixed a lot of issues with pc version being the gameplay. Dead Space 2 is a lot more scarer and a lot more enjoyable it reminds me of Half Life 2 where you could throw the sawblades at the zombies from the Ravenholm, but it takes a lot of great elements away and uses it to make you feel a little bit more exposed when you don't have ammo for any weapon. Instead you have a spear to take on a hoard of alien creatures. Between the gameplay and the none stop action through out it's a really fun and scary something EA actually got something correct. Would highly recommend it especially if you played the first game since Dead Space 2 goes back the first game in a truly fun experience 8/10

I rarely like to replay games after I've completed them. It doesn't bring much fun, feels repetitive and often boring, even if there are various tweaks and/or easter eggs on subsequent replays.
This one I've completed five times, that's pretty much describes it.

Pros:
Great game,
the game keeps you awake,
nice story,
Doom horror style game although nothing like Doom.

Cons:
I personally don't like the camera being a bit on the side. I get why they do it, also I like that you see your armor, but I just don't like the camera.
the inventory system is a bit old school.

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.

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.
