Dead Space 2
Isaac is not OK (in a good way)
I have been following this game for a year now, keeping up on new little tidbits and here is what I can tell you: Its gonna be a blast! The story is going to be very macabre, Graphics are better, New weapons like the javelin gun and rivot gun look slick, kinda liked it with no speaking from isaac but well see about that, Multiplayer looks sick since you get to play as human or necromorph which is supposed to play a bit like left 4 dead which i have not played. You get to dig into the unitoligist story more, and Isaac. Isaac is not ok. He is going through major dementia in this round and that brings more dread into the story. Is he going to make it mentally? With the release of dead space aftermath on disc(thats right a movie) I belive that Isaac will NOT die, but may suffer more than you think while still steady to return for a part three. The film Takes place right after the end of dead space 2. Regardless what happens you will have buckets of gore jump scares a macabre storyline and more area to venture about. Buy this game cause it will be worth the money unlike HALO which is good as a coaster.
GOTY 2011 Written All Over It
I've beaten the first DS multiple times and it never gets old, definitely the scariest game I've played. The musical score was also one of the best I've heard in a video game. When I heard about DS2 I was so psyched! In the videos I've seen the graphics look amazing, but graphics aren't what make the game great it's all about the gameplay and storyline. The storyline of the original DS was great and very intriguing. Gameplay was even better with necromorphs jumping out when you'd least expect it and you having to blast them away with the all powerful Plasma Cutter and many other awesome tools. I only hope that DS2 will be able to succeed as well as the first game. I've been disappointed with many franchises and game sequels lately, FFxiii, Dead Rising 2, Black Ops, etc. Visceral has a knack for making scary games though so lets hope for the best!!!
A great game just gets better with the sequal.
Gameinformer's new issue features the epic Dead Space 2 and some of the new features that are included. From the screen shots and story line, this game is going to make the USG Ishimura's size look minuscule. One of the new weapons includes an impaler which will spear you enemies to walls. Ever wonder what a necromorph child would look like? Not to strong solo, but they attack in large groups. Enemies will be bigger, badder and more plentiful than the first game. There will not be as much if any zero-g jumping, you will now actually experience the full sphere of movement in zero-g. Isaac also does not "hey, go here, do this" in this installment. He will find survivors on the station and send them instead. Isaac himself is also suffering from delusions as being in such close proximity to the marker during the first game. This game is going to raise the bar on the video game horror genre much like its predecessor. There is also a docking station on the station which looks like the USG Ishimura might make an appearance. Happy hunting.
Do you scare easily?
I played/owned the first one on the 360 (excellent btw), but since getting rid of the 360 I obviously went with the PS3 version for this one. No regrets in that department. This is an awesome game. If you scare easily, then you'll probably won't finish the game. Some of the imagery puts most horror movies to shame. Play in the dark, and your adrenaline will be pumping, and hair on the back of neck will be standing on end. I waited until finishing the game before posting this, and man what a "horror" ride that was. Gamer delight! Recommend playing thru the first one first tho, even tho this one is better IMO, but without giving spoliers, there are "references" to the first one that adds to that scare anxiety that is seldom done properly. Big thumbs up!
I cant wait!!
I had never even heard of the game dead space until I just happened to pick it up by chance at gamestop. Even then I didnt play it for a couple weeks after I got it because I got like 6-7 other games at the same time. The first time I played------MAN, I am a huge fan of the resident evil games and others like that ever since I got my origional Playstation when I was 18 back in '97. Then in '00 I got my PS2 while in the Army and contiued to love this type of game. I was late getting my PS3, just like a month ago, and if Dead Space was the only title available it still would have been worth it! This is the best game I have ever played!!! I hope DS2 is at least as good or better and I also hope that EA does alot more advertising with DS2 than they did with the first so they can attract alot larger of a following. I had never seen a single ad for the first. I am extremely happy that I picked Dead Space out of the blue because this game is AWSOME!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you EA and others for these 2, and hopefully more great Dead Space games!!
The new Resident Evil
Dead space has now become the Resident Evil of today. With the last couple of RE's being disappointments, Dead Space has come out of nowhere to take the #1 spot in horror games. Dead Space was a revolutionary title and the squeal looks to continue the story and add thing such as new weapons, ability's, and even online multilayer. Will easily be the best horror shooter of 2011.
This is a really good game, but there are a few parts that they should have spent just a little more time on. teh good parts are that it will keep you on the edge of your seet the whole time and it keeps taking crazy turns that you will never see coming, it also give you some very good puzzles that you will need to solve and they are garenteed to keep you scratching your head. The one thiong that i think they should spent a little more time on is the multiplayer. I know that it probably was not the big thing that they were trying to get right in this game, but it was just bad, it was kind of fun for the first five minutes then it gets boring. The human side is wayy over powered and they will end up winning almost every sigle game you play in. So i think that if you dont care about the multiplayer and really dont care about the replay value then this is a good game for you.
I'm doing this review with little time played.
I have only completed the first chapter of this game and have not played the original Dead Space but WOW! What a great game! I got it for $15 at Gamestop and talk about value. I know the price has been dropping significantly and I'm not quite sure why. The "dismemberment" aspect of this game adds a whole new dimension to gaming. It's become more realistic because me shooting an aliens leg or arm off affects his ability to attack me. More games especially first person shooters should consider this to make their games more realistic. After just a single chapter of this game, the visuals and sounds along with the creepy aliens really sets up the environment that you are in. Some people said that this game is too scary...that's why it's call DEAD SPACE! I was on the edge of my seat while I was playing because I did not know when an alienmutant might jump out and attack me. I recommend this game and would assume that Dead Space 1 is just as good if not better because the price is nearly the same as this game but that does not reflect the value of Dead Space 2.
More Teeth Chattering Horror
The second installment to the Dead Space series is yet another blockbuster event in the survival horror genre. It continues from the events of the first game into the next. Upon playing the game I was taken on a journey through the mind of Isaac Clarke as the dimensia he goes through from the Marker. He battles his way to through hordes of Necromorphs to the government sector to battle and destroy yet another Marker that was created by Earthgov. I love the thrill ride this games puts the player on. From the hospital battle where you have nothing to start out with to the thrilling train ride towards the Cassini Towers, and the epic space battle with the Tormentor. This game is nothing but EXCELLENT!! Keep them coming EA and Viceral Games
Definetly a must have!
If you haven't played the first part yet don't be cheap and go get it already. I assure ya it'll make you a dead space fan as well. I work for gamestop and recommend this game to many who don't have much money. dead space 15.99 is what is worth!. Hands down this will be one of the greatest 3rd person shooter games overall.
