Good Times with Space Zombies,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Dead Space 2 (Video Game)
I'll be blunt, my biggest critiques of Dead Space 2 are the ones that I had with Dead Space leading me to believe the problem may be endemic with the whole series: lack of innovation with story and game mechanics. It's still Resident Evil 4 in space and the development team has done nothing bring originality beyond adding more weapons (which unless the player makes a conscious choice to pick and invest heavily in they probably won't be used, unless the player decides to have repeated playthroughs) and foes to cut up. I sincerely hope there is more originality in story and play styles in the next installment. However everything else, the voice work is excellent and the monsters and weapons are all still fun as hell to play around with (the ripper never gets old, ever and I admire the cojones for adding children enemies) and a real focus on item management keeps the game interesting and playable enough that I do not regret my purchase in the slightest.
