Dead Space 2
One of the Top Survival Horror Games Created Yet
I'm going through my second playthrough of Dead Space 2. First playthrough was with a big screen tv, audio just through tv. great game, not scary but startling moments. Now playing with a 60 inch too but with full surround sound loud. This made me jump more times than almost any other game, except maybe the first silent hill. The sounds is what primarily can get you to jump and be scared/startled. Graphics are amazing. Like, 10/10. The story could be better, but it is not bad. The whole game concept is awesome. Anyways, play this game, loud if you can. In the dark. I'm 26 and don't scare all that easy. For survival horror, this is in my top 5. thats saying a lot. 9.5/10
A Pleasantly Horrific Game
Man, am I excited to play number 3! Not only is Dead Space 2 one of the finest survival-horror games I have played, but one of the finest games I have played period. This sequel and continuation of Isaac Clark's fight with the necromorphs and his insanity is a fantastic, horrifying, and intense experience.
While I really enjoyed the first Dead Space, I wasn't too keen on the constant back-tracking and the lack of distinction between environments. I was very happy to see that Visceral rectified that greatly and refined many other areas of the game as well.
This time, Isaac Clark is a fully voiced character. While him being silent in the last game detracted nothing from my experience with that game, it definitely adds something to the overall experience here. Isaac is not only fighting the terrifying necromorphs but also his quick descent into insanity. Hearing him converse and argue with his hallucinations is harrowing and makes the game that much more intense and interesting to play. The voice acting is superb. You quickly sympathize with him thus making you care about his situation and what happens to him.
While the original Dead Space looked great, Dead Space 2 continues to up the ante in the visuals department. This is some of the best use of lighting in a game I have seen. Isaac in his suit looks as detailed as ever and just looks awesome. The necromorphs are incredibly detailed and are as terrifying as ever to encounter. Overall, this is just a sharper looking Dead Space. It's a very tightly crafted game and one you rarely see a flaw in any aspect of its design.
The gameplay is as fun and intense as ever. New weapons and enemies are introduced to encourage more experimentation(even though I just stuck with upgrading the plasma cutter and line gun). If the necromorphs from the original Dead Space didn't really give you goose bumps, wait until you meet the necromorphed infants and children for the first time. Their tormented wails and cries as they crawled and sprinted towards me made me shudder and cower in fear multiple times during the game. Fortunately, the aiming and firing of your weapons is smooth and accurate allowing you to severe the necessary vital appendages of your enemies easily.
Of course, no survival-horror game can do without a great audio experience. Dead Space more than delivers on this front as well. The voice acting is excellent all around. The music fits perfectly with the game. The sounds from the environment are used perfectly and each necromorph has their own terrifying sound. All of this comes through clearly and powerfully especially with a sound system.
I can't recommend this game enough to action/survival-horror fans. This is an expertly crafted game that everyone(if you're old enough to stomach the extreme gore/violence that is) should give a chance. It's extremely thrilling and purely entertaining. Very worthy of 5 stars.
I love the Dead Space series! The second one is really good, however, I did like the first one better. I'm still on the third. Play this game!
one word... EPIC!!!!
i wanna start out by saying dead space 2 is one of the best survival horror games i have played this generation if not ever. easily beats out resident evil. That franchise has really let me down since resident evil 4 and 5 and 6 was terrible. Dead space 2 has amazing graphics, sound, scare factor everything is amazing havent tried online or anything like that so i dont know what its like. i wish it was a bit longer it only took me 8 hours to beat but i still am not done with it. i got alot of trophies to get and i wanna fully upgrade my RIG and some weapons. after i beat a game i usally dont wanna play through it again but dead space 2 is different it is one of those games that is impossible to get tired of however there is some puzzles that will make u wanna pull your hair out. i highly recomend this game but play the original first or you will be completely lost.
im strict wen it comes down to ratings but this game deserves no less than a 9. enemies are dificult n da graphics n gameplay is a huge improvement from da 1st dead space. A MUST HAVE!!

You fight some messed up things. And no people to help DON NOt PLAY IT AT NIGHT. And the beast thing you get to kill stuf
Just plain awesome is all i can say. its just like resident evil but in outer space, plus the online multiplayer is so much fun :)
This game will have you blown away!
This game is awesome.you get alot of cool weapons and suits,the best part is the Zero-G,I recommend this game for Hardcore Gamers or Casual.But,in my mind,you should get the first just so you can have a great Dead Space history!
