Dead Space 2 is amazing. It takes everything the original put into the series, and enhances it. The controls are more precise, smooth and convenient (with the addition of a single button health and stasis refill system), the visuals are even more detailed and gritty, the sound is as creepy as ever, and the story remains intriguing and intense. You must work to unravel the truth behind the Sprawl (the game's setting), Unitology and Necromorphs, as well as battling (literally) horrific hallucinations and delusions from an alien form of dementia. If you are a fan of the first, then you will definitely enjoy this.
Dead Space 2's gameplay is very similar to the first, but with the right tweaks and enhancements. The controls are basically the same with some minor changes (select is the default menu, square is to reload, aim and triangle is for stasis). The circle button is now a one hit health refill button, instead of square (from the first). The triangle button is similar, but for stasis refill. Isaac's movements are much smoother, more precise, and easier to control. The melee attacks, for example, are far more accurate and can be used in quick succession, unlike in the first. The weapons are great and fun to use as well. One major change is in the zero-gravity areas.Read more ›
Prior to release, it seemed Dead Space 2 (DS2) doomed itself to failure...Obviously it would be compared to its highly acclaimed predecessor with a microscope. During the lead up to the release in January of 2011, there were complaints from fans from everything to it having multiplayer tacked on, to the protagonist Isaac Clarke showing his face. Other people complained about him getting a fully voiced dialog, or that he was supposedly accompanied this time around. The concern was the atmosphere created by DS1 and how these factors would diminish it. These issues all could have taken away from the magic that was DS1. However, what I found in DS2 was a richer, more engrossing, more refined and overall purely superior experience in comparison to DS1.
When playing DS2, I noticed some differences in the controls...something that was hard to pin down exactly what had changed. All I knew was that in comparison to DS1, DS2's controls felt tighter, more responsive and overall better to use. I felt that in most situations where Isaac gets mauled, maimed or shredded by the baddies that it was my fault in some way, not some fault of the controls.Read more ›
GENRE: Survival horror.
GAMEPLAY: Third person shooter. However, instead of the usual center of mass/headshot gameplay, these necromorphs require dismemberment. Hence, Isaac has a number of unconventional weapons at his disposal that make this task more feasible (an arc welder, force gun, plasma cutter, electric saw, etc). A couple of weapons have been added to the arsenal from Dead Space, but essentially the gameplay remains the same. The addition of a proximity mine thrower makes it easier to strategize and lay down some defenses against the heavier onslaughts. The suits now come equipped with thrusters, so space walks are free roaming as opposed to the linear jumps in Dead Space.
ISAAC CLARKE: This time out, Isaac is no longer the "mute protagonist" of Dead Space. Now that Isaac reacts and responds to the other characters that interact with him, the narrative of Dead Space 2 is much more fulfilling and enjoyable to watch unfold. He's also being haunted and slowly driven insane by strong hallucinations of his girlfriend.
DLC: The downloadable content, available at five bucks a pop, offers beefed-up space suits and weapons. Essentially, it provides you with items you otherwise wouldn't get until a few levels into the game. The upgrading system remains the same, however.Read more ›
