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.

This game has everything:
*Love
*Madness
*Delirium
*Claustrophobia
*Faith
*Horror
*Amnesia
*Betrayal
*Sacrifice
*Action
*etc.
This game will get you in its hand and sometimes will shake you sometimes will caress you but mostly will squeeze you to the death. And you will see your blood all over the place. Take a few clean underwear with you and put the headphones on.
9/10

Recommend for Casual Gamer
Not recommend for Hardcore Gamer

First 3 hours experience:
*Story continue from deadspace 1, but this included short clip about previous episode
*The control feel more accurate than deadspace 1, graphic improve a lot.

After 3 hours experience:
*Nice maps! Futuristic apartments, mall, church, space, I'm enjoy it!

After 6 hours experience:
*Pulse Rifle is the only best weapon to survive, other gun is not helpful...

After 9 hours experience:
*Starting repetitive encounter... But soon, turn to getting exciting encounter!

After 11 hours experience:

Even though this game is getting a bit "old" I would still like to review this game.

The story is around 15 hours long and follows isaac clark, he woke up in a space ship after 3 years of being a "patient".
You will quickly realize that there is something wrong on the ship, its filled with necromorphs (aliens) like in the first game.
You are being guided by someone called daina, on your way through you will come across more people like Stross also known "Patient 5" who keeps contacting you troughout the game, about the "marker" which attractes/creates necromorph's.
You will also meet someone called "Ellie" she will be helping you troughout the game and you will be helping her as well.

The gameplay is solid, the controlls are good and everything works more then well no cringy controls altough I felt like isaac's movement was a bit slow at times, especialy on parts where you where forced to sprint.
The aiming system works really solid as well, there where no annoying issue's which the first game had (where the aiming would be really slow even when you are playing on the highest sensitivity, thankfully this game has no mouse issue's at least not for me.

The game also manages to suprise me everytime, and I sat on the tip of my chair to my whole playtrough waiting for a jumpscare to come.
The environment is really well designed as well, its dark and scary most of the times and the power will often cut out and fill the erea with necromorphs lurking from the darkness.

The puzzels in this game are quite intresting as well, they are not really hard to do but they managed to make me think of how to solve them for a little bit.

The game also allows you to use a store, where you can buy weapons, ammo, medkits, and even suits, the credit system works well and doesnt give you too much, but enough to make you reconsider what you buy at times.
You can also find or buy "power nodes" which allow you to upgrade your, suit, weapons or unlock storage rooms which are mostly filled with loot, you have to spend your power nodes really carefull as well, even though i felt like the damage upgrade barely did anything.

The enemy design is really great and creepy as well, i often found myself aiming for the legs to kill to slow them down, or cut of one arm and shoot it back at them, shooting at the head wont often result in a kill since they will continue to walk towards you.

The audio is really well designed as well, the voice acting was more then great and i often felt like the characters where really in pain, especialy isaac's voice, Thanks alot Gunner Wright for this awesome voice performance.

Well comming to a verdict now I would say the game never dissapointed me, has a great story and audio design
the story was really great as well and the ending was really amazing as well.

This game deserves a solid 9/10.

Thanks alot for reading everyone!
