“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.

All around fun game. it does trade off some graphic quality(not noticeable) and aditonal animations for some weapons for faster and fluid controls which is pretty nice. Does however include active animations for the characters, along with a bit more expansion to the necromorphs. Compared to the first one, the first one is alot better as it does emphasize that panicking can make things harder when surviving. This Game is more shooter then survival as you can easily aquire strong equipment due to the dlcs being on it early, but even then soon as you get the pulse rifle or other equipment your just good with it can turn relative easy(especially with the new alt fire for pulse rilfe...upgrade that bad boy easy to clear some situations).(SPOILER SENTENCE) The game does get back at you though at then end of the chapter depending on how much time you deal with the ubermorphs and necros, lets say its a run through to the marker that you don't want to be low on if playing on harder game modes. Its straight forward, storyline is pretty good and the start is one that sets you on your guard for the rest of the game.This game still introducing something alot more fun and even throws in a badd ♥♥♥ moments which makes you feel like hots stuff, and small form of comedy if you get through the wall.

Shorter, scarier, and far more fun than Dead Space Uno. but when i say scarier, i mean in comparison to the difference between toast and buttered bread - a little beat of heat and time. and Necromorphs.

A huge improvement from its predeccessor, Dead Space 2 proves to be an amazing horror game with tons of jumpscares which leaves the player cautious when walking around the eerie spaceship. The gameplay is really good and the controls are easy to use (Xbox 360 controller). The music that they add during gameplay really adds up to the creepy atmosphere, and it makes it feel like as though necromorphs could jump out at you at anytime. This game is a definite must to pick up for any horror game fans out there!

Creative weapons combined with inventory management and a unique customization system, plus strategic dismemberment combat and fantastic zero gravity flight sections. Also tons of cheap, frustrating, and boring jump scares that nevertheless force you into close combat and preclude any use of strategery (also totally undermining the creative weaponry). The total lack of actual fear or horror of any kind and the pathetic narrative only serve to highlight what might have been.

The best game in the Dead Space trilogy, perfect mix of horror and action. For more horror, try Dead Space 1; for more action, try Dead Space 3

game was ok until the endgame, which has unkillable monsters (that showed up first in the Ded Space 1) that you couldn't outrun. At that point it got a little stupid. One and three were better

For me this game is alot closer to System Shock 2 then BioShock ever was.

This game is a methodical horror spaceship dungeon crawling game. It had great graphics and an extremly cool UI at it's time. It's a lot of diffrent games and maybe it is most close to being like Resident Evil.

I recommend this game espically if you want a action horror adventure game with a small touch of RPG.

This game offers an incredible experience for those who are looking for a creepy, terrifying, satisfying action/adventure game. I bought this on a whim and wasn't expecting to have such an incredible time with Dead Space 2.

The sheer amount of detail put into all of the environments makes it feel so real, and compelled me to explore and keep playing.

The story is surprsingly deep and compelling, and the voice acting is superb. It creates believable and interesting characters that truly grabbed me and kept me interested to find out what happens.

Like the voice acting, the sound design is also impeccable. I recommend playing with good earphones; you'll be able to hear enemies sneaking up on you in the creepiest way possible.

Rarely have I found encounters that aren't tense. Every moment of combat is strenuous and frightening.

As a fan of the first game, I was skeptacle of it's sequel, worrying that they would sacrifice the horror in favor of more action, but as I said, every moment of action in this game is rattling, I frequently find myself (or Isaac, rather) standing amongst the carnage to regain my composure.

I can't recommend Dead Space 2 enough for those looking for a memorable experience. Playing this 3 years after it released, it holds up remarkably against the products that have came since. Very wise investment for only $20

EDIT: Just beat the game, I wrote this review a couple hours away from the ending. I must say that this game confirmed my feelings on it. It's an incredible experience that I simply can't recommend enough to other gamers. 5/5

Dead Space 2 is a great sequel of the Dead Space game with the same fantastic horror atmosphere, jump scares and multiple "challanges".

As in the description, "THE NIGHTMARE RETURNS."
