Dead Space 2 Review

 

2008's Dead Space was a lovely addition to the survival horror genre that was badly in need of a zombie bite to the arm after being dominated for so long by the Silent Hill and Resident Evil series. Dead Space 2 is Visceral Games attempt to improve on...

Another thing that takes getting used to is the fact that the necromorphs are incredibly weak until you level them up. If you don’t know how to use them properly you’ll get pwned every time without making a single scratch in your opponents. At best...

Dead Space 2: Severed Review

 

Severed places an ungainly weight on the shoulders of dismemberment combat for this extension of Dead Space: Extraction's fiction, creating a dichotomy as uncomfortable as traipsing backwards through already tired levels.

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...

If you think things are bad for you at the moment, just be thankful you're not Isaac Clarke, the Dead Space series main protagonist. Isaac's troubled story picks up roughly three years after the events in Dead Space. After the horrible events that took...

Dead Space 2 - Xbox 360 review at Thunderbolt Games

 

Picking up three years after the events of the first game, Dead Space 2 begins with protagonist and engineer extraordinaire, Isaac Clarke, undergoing psychological treatment within The Sprawl, a densely populated space metropolis that's practically...

Dead Space 2

 

A multiplayer component is now featured along with the game (which requires the new Online Pass system, so be careful if you purchase pre-owned) that alas feels a little empty compared to the main single player experience. Taking either the side of...

Terrifying gameplay; Excellent sequences; Superb atmosphere

Little repetitive; Quite predictable; Multiplayer lacking

The Dead Space 2 plot is extremely linear, so don't expect a great deal of variety along the way - however it has allowed the developers to carefully craft the experience around you to increase the tension and add a few decent yet fairly simple puzzles...

Dead Space 2 Review

 

Sometimes the inner demons are more frightening than the outer ones.

Excellent pacing and intense action; impressive presentation and visuals; new emotional depth

Multiplayer modes feel tacked on; some repetitive sequences; AI can be a little cheap

That minor misstep aside, Dead Space 2 is one of hell of a game. The hero's newfound voice adds an emotional impact and resonance that the original game sorely lacked, and I genuinely wanted to see Isaac conquer his inner demons nearly as much as the...

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...

Altman Be Praised

Excellent singleplayer experience

Multiplayer somewhat lacking

While the story does contain the usual assortment of friendships, betrayals, lessons learned and loves lost, what I found to be one of the more interesting elements is the fleshing out of Isaac Clark’s character. As is so often the case with main...
