“A monster of a sequel.”

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.

Wakes up from a long 3 hour coma.
Doesn't know controls.
Have to run like hell without any idea where to go.
- Best intro in a video game ever.






















Plays Multiplayer
Sees my fellow teammates get executed and flatline.
Joins their fate.
- Would get jumped again

10/10 for it's singleplayer
6.5 for it's multiplayer (Too much hackers)

*Graphics are decent
*Atmosphere is creepy!
*You get Addicted to the horror
*Great Jump Scares

I initially had trouble getting used to the keyboard controls but after a while I started to like this game.
I love that you get scared with this game thou it did get predictable on where the monsters will come out so I eventually knew how to put on traps, I still think this game i think was really fun and scary, to be honest I haven't played it again after finishing it all the way.

3 out of 5

While it is a very linear game and honestly not as good as the first one, it is still very good and worth purchasing if you enjoyed the first Dead Space.

If you see something moving shoot it, if you see a dead body shoot it, if you just killed an alien make sure you stomp it for like 10 times, if you feel agitated on a certain level immediately close the game then uninstall the game and stomp your PC a couple times, necromorph could have infected your PC

WARNING!!
DON'T PLAY THIS GAME UNLESS YOU WANT CANCER!!

It's like Dead Space 1 but controls are slightly different, things seem to be a tad more scarier and the story is better. Plus the creatures are actually giving me a hard time! Fun game, more to explore and items aren't in plain sight so you gotta go hunting for them, keeping a slow pace which I really like.

P.S I know there was 2009 bug with the save stations but everyone, including me, were just being really dumb. You got to put your weapon down in order to get the save station working. Took me about an hour or two into the game to realize this.
