Dead Space 2 (PC)

 

Isaac Clarke, the unluckiest space engineer of the 26th century, is more unfortunate than ever in Dead Space 2. 2008's superb Dead Space took the style of survival horror shooter action exemplified by games like Resident Evil 4 and meshed it with an...

The Good: Great storytelling. To paraphrase Indiana Jones: Necromorphs; I hate those guys. Great physics. The Bad: Somewhat predictable at times. Some strange gameplay segments, like plummeting from the upper atmosphere down to the planet in a weird...

The interaction of great FPS storytelling mixed with light RPG elements has become a very successful formula and created some of my favorite games: System Shock, BioShock, Mass Effect, Half-Life and now Dead Space. The plotline of DS2 is clearly...

Dead Space 2 is a Visceral experience on Xbox 360, PS3, PC

 

In space, no one can hear your arms get ripped off. But you can hear what Alex has to say about the sequel to Dead Space from EA and Visceral Games.

With this sequel, Visceral Games has masterfully expanded on the first Dead Space. They’ve revved up the series with tougher guns, a bigger setting, and online multiplayer, but kept the spirit and, most importantly, the scares of the original in tact....

Why you should play Dead Space 2

 

Just so everyone knows where I'm coming from, let me start with this caveat: I didn't like the original Dead Space very much. After hearing endless praise of the game I eventually got around to trying it and I wasn't impressed. Maybe the bar had been...

Of the three years since the events of the original Dead Space, Isaac Clarke remembers nothing, and finds himself in a straight-jacket on a station on Saturn's Moon: Titan. Although not much actually happened in these three years (bar the events of...

“They're coming outta the walls. They're coming outta the goddamn walls.”

Audio and visuals really enhance the haunting storyline. Fun to play as Necromorphs in multiplayer

Although the areas are larger than the original, it still seemed like more ‘corridor walking

The Necromorphs do however have a varied attack pattern. There are Spitters that, as you'd expect, spit an acidic substance. There are also Necromorphs known as Pregnants. Shooting the Pregnants in the stomach releases one of the most annoying foes...

Another mundane Necromorph massacre.

Making Isaac the hunted instead of the hunter, and not simply pitting him against some oversized brute with shoot-me-here yellow sacks on its shoulders, makes for a thrilling role-reversal. Unfortunately, after this encounter, the game returns to its...

Dead Space 2 (PC) Review

 

Visceral Games return with a horrific sequel that does what sequels should do, and then some.

As with the combat, the story of Dead Space 2 is more intense than before. Without spoiling much: you again play Isaac Clarke, an engineer that happens to have an extensive knowledge of how to handle various weapons. This time around, you're going...

Dead Space 2 Review

 

Dead Space 2's thrilling campaign and intense multiplayer make it an excellent game and a worthy follow-up to its superb predecessor.

Campaign starts strong and ends strong ; Dismembering necromorphs is as thrilling as ever ; Some great new necromorph types ; Wonderfully atmospheric visuals and sound design ; Exhilarating multiplayer

No significant gameplay advances over the first game ; Single-player falls into predictable rhythm for a while ; Some dull objectives

Despite your powerful and satisfying arsenal, you still feel as if you're in constant danger, and that's never more the case than when you're faced with a few of the terrifying new types of necromorphs that make their debuts here. One new variety,...
