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.

Contrary to what people will tell you, this is NOT a survival horror game.

It IS a damn good action game with satisfying combat and some really disturbing stuff to throw at you.

Ok so let's start of by saying that last time we saw Isaac Clarke he was shall we say not alltogether sane after his experience with his time spent on the planetcracker USG Ishimura and even though we knew it wasent over we didnt know of the horror that was to come.
Set three years after the event's in the original Dead Space,this time protagonist Isaac Clarke find's hinself in a fight for his life against a new Necromorph outbreak on the Sprawl,a space station above Saturn's largest moon,Titan.
Isaac is at a disadvantage right from the get go as he is believed to have lost his mind and when the outbreak kick's of this time he is in a straitjacket strapped on an upright bed and wondering if this is it?????
Of course he need not worry as a certain Franco Delille set's him free (protagonist of Dead Space Ignition) but we all know what happen's to character's that are'nt that important in these games dont we (NO WHAT HAPPEN'S TO THEM????-ARE YOU HAVING ME ON OR WHAT?????)

Right as allways down to the brass tac's of the game and first of the most important aspect for this game the story.Now i for one was wondering how they would carry on the story and for the second part of what has so far been a trilogy they have hit the nail on the head.
Is the story in this game told as well as in the first?????,yes and no is the answer and i will explain why on both points.
When i say yes it makes me happy to say that,as this was one game i didnt want them to mess up on and i am happy to say they didnt and the story flow's and take's you on a journey that (if your a fan of the original) you wont forget.Now let me explain why i said no,i really enjoyed the first game and the story but i dont remember Isaac being (for use of a better term) "a potty mouth".Now im not a prude (far from it) but i find the change in Isaac not one that i appriciated or liked but i must say i didnt find that it put me of at all (but it was there in the back of my mind whilst playing).
Now to say more about what goes on than i allready have will not only spoil all the surprise's the game has in store for you but also all the terror and sheer shock's you will get from discovering it on your own (and you would'ent want those spolit now would you????).
Now the sound in game (just like in the first game) really does a fantastic job of building tension and really does help to move the game along and without it,it just wouldent be the same game and experience that it is,and it will also creep into your psyche as you play to the point where you dont notice its there and it meld's into the background.

The graphic's in this game really do a superb job of putting you in Isaac's shoes (well space-boots) in a situation so dire with creature's that can only be described as coming from your nightmare's being brought to life as they not only look horrific but there are different type's and each one has their own animation and attack style's to make each encounter memorable.
The animation during Isaac's death scene's are at one all different enough (when you die at the hand's of different enemies that is) that you wont tire of them but at the same time you wont want to see them as some are (not to put to finer point on it) horrific!!!!!!!
The art design for the sprawl has also been thought out well and to be honest it doesnt feel like a space station but more like one huge gigantic haunted house with you as a very unhappy and terrified customer.As you wander around you will find yourself looking at the design of the space station and wondering if at any moment it will also actually come to life and try to claim your soul and your sanity.
Now the gameplay does feel familiar but the game does actually seem more combat based than the first and allthough this has upset some for me i found it not to be a problem.It doesnt effect the story in any way and if anything when facing of against larger numbers of Necropmorph's it actually seem's to bump up the tension rather than diminish it.
Unlike its predecessor,Dead Space 2 has a multiplayer mode,pitting human character's against Necromorph's across the Sprawl and this offer's more needed replayability for the game as you choose whether to fend of the dreaded creature's or try to infect the hapless humans,and this game mode play's out really well and yet it just hasent been thought out and implemented as well as it could have been (might just be me),but Dead Space in my eyes is meant to be a solo experience and one to be enjoyed scared to death on your own.
Now the one thing that i remember most about the first game was the ending and this game does try to play a little trick on you at the end and............................will we make it "What" (WELL NOT SAYING).

SPOILER ALERT*****IF YOU WANT TO DISCOVER THE ENDING FOR YOURSELF DONT WATCH*****SPOILER ALERT

Ok so as allways in closing will you want to play this game or even revisit it if you've allready finished it,well answer the following question's and you decide -

1 - Did you enjoy the first game and want more of the same?????
2 - Do you want to play a well thought out game and one that throw's scare's both of the jump variety and otherwise at you?????
And 3 - Are you looking for one of the best action horror games that this genre can throw your way?????
If you answer'ed yes to the question's above then what are you waiting for let the "MARKER" claim your soul again if not then just remember allways and i mean allways check the corner of your eye as this game may just creep up on you yet.

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.

It's rare when a sequel overpasses the original, so it's safe to say that this one almost came close to it. I enjoyed every moment playing it. I'm looking forward for the third part.

It has you checking every corpse in sight with a ranged gunshot to make sure that they're not going to reanimate and slice your body apart.

The horror within this game cannot be described with mere words, videos and images are enough to keep you on edge, but being inside the game immerses you to the point where you almost emulate the fear that the player is enduring, a truly shocking experience.
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=394410201
You play as Isaac Clarke in the aftermath of Dead Space 1's events, you are lead to believe that you have a mental issue which can be cured if you listen to who is talking to you, both Isaac's ambition to survive the odds given rise to by these messages and your own ambition to run through the blood still keeps you going through the game, despite the offputting level of horror and terror.

Excruciatingly terrifying at a certain point where Isaac re-enters the USG Ishimura, only to be met by a swarm of unstoppable necromorphs which swarm him like wasps, the paranoia you feel when you hear a distant necromorph, thinking you've killed them all, and you think they're too far away to reach you in time, but just as you go to run, it's fangs are buried in your leg is undescribable.
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=394410249
Most definately a game that gets you thinking; you constantly run in to obstacles which enable you to use your mind to utilize many game mechanics such as Telekinesis and freezing, you are able to freeze certain obstacles in time to ensure that they don't slice you in to millions of pieces as you crawl towards your objective.

Do I reccommend this game? absolutely! but it is not for the weak of heart, nor for those who find themselves constantly ragequitting in every game they play.
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=394410288
Watch your step, don't turn around unless you hear a ♥♥♥♥ing noise, and most certainly never think that you're alone.

what can i say about dead space 2.
THE STORY:
you play as isaac clarke an ex engineer and ur girlfriend/wife has been killed and ur going mental and cant accept it.
you get sent to a mental hospital where the necromorphs start atttacking.
there is more to the story but i wont spoil it for u guys.
there is a HIGH amount of gore and I MEAN high.
i think this is the only gory game i have played where headshots are inefective,instead u have to dismember ur enimies to kill them.
every death is full on gore and the blood is everywhere.
onto the pros and cons

PROS
-lots and lots of gore
-stunning graphics
-great,gripping story
-in space
-lots of explosions
-great multiplayer
-great shooting mechanics
-great gunplay
-great horror
-great creepy atmoshpere
-very jumpy jumpscares(especially at night with your lights off and curtains drawn with sound cancelling head/earphones and full PC volume)

CONS
-a bit laggy
-only a few bugs but still

OVERALL RATING
dead space 2 is one of the finest horror games ever made but multiplayer took the horror and swapped it to action but fun action but above all the cons i would give it

singleplayer:9.4/10
multiplayer:8/10

thanks for reading and thumbs up

Good storyline and sci-fi atmosphere. And the gameplay also good.
The lights, decorations characters, and actors did good job.
I recommend this game those all who's liking the mystic sci-fi stories and games.

Good things:
-Good visuals.
-Good playthrough.
-Good sotry.

Bad Things:
-As the mystic has getting solved the scary things getting less.
-If you want continue the 'Dead Space' storyline, you sadly need install an another aplication onto your operation system, because the 'EA Games' has decided the future didn't publish their games on the 'Steam'. Bad thing, I guess.

I played Dead Space 2 quite a bit back then (Origin copy), and I felt obligated to repurchase this great game again.

Dead Space 2 is an atmospheric and immersive action-horror shooter set on the Sprawl. It takes all the aspects that were great in Dead Space and improved upon them without changing the game mechanics that worked well.

If you want a nice challenge to make it feel less action filled, play it on zealot difficulty until you can unlock "hardcore" mode. However, if you are looking for a laid back playthrough, survivalist should feel right at home.

In this revival of the classic and critically acclaimed Dead Space, Isaac Clarke battles horrors and psychological barriers. A nice improvement over the mundane, fetch-it systems engineer that we once knew. Isaac has more of a voice and you get a look into his mind as he traverses through the nightmarish space station.

The Dead Space universe has a warm place in my heart. Visceral Games, without Electronic Arts' restrictions, are great developers who are extremely passionate about their intellectual property. It is nice to know that the Dead Space series may be revisited in the future, and talks about Dead Space 4 is not quite dead.

Rating: 9.0 out of 10

Highly recommended.

One of the greatest games, ever. Probably the scariest game I have ever played, although Dead Space 1 MIGHT be slightly ahead for me.

There's one level in here that is BRILLIANTLY horrifying if you're played the first game. Seriosuly one of the best (stressful) experiences I have had playing any game.

Fantastic story
Beautiful graphics
Amazing music and sound design

I've ended up buying this game on multiple platforms and is still the only game I have completed more than three times. This game is special.... and it'll make you freak the crap out. Even after playing for a few hours I end up with this feeling of unease and dread for a while. Very strange, but shows how much this game impacts the player.
