Having enjoyed playing through the first Dead Space, I was looking forward to a good scare with a lot of action. I was not disappointed. Dead Space 2 improves in almost every way over its predecessor. From the beginning of the game, which had me jumping out of my seat, to the heart-pounding end, I was constantly on the edge of my seat. The action flows seamlessly, and it no longer feels like a series of fetch quests like in the original. The upgrades were more intuitive, and the suits just kept looking more awesome. There is one thing to note however. This game has a lot of gore. Way more than the first one. If that doesn't bother you, then fine, but if you are even slightly squeamish you would be better off letting other people play during some scenes. I may have developed a permanent fear of needles thanks to this game :) In summary:
PROS:
More intuitive gameplay flow
Better character and story development than compared to the first
Graphics are top-notch
The sound is perhaps the best I've experienced in a game
CONS:
Still not the most engulfing story in the world
Difficulty is completely brutal (for those of you who like a challenge this could be a PRO)
Online play requires a code (included in the game)
Ramped up levels of gore could be disturbing to some

Overall I think that this was a very well-done game that entertained me and will continue to. Happy playing!

I am a huge fan of the original Dead Space, it being the first game I bought for the Xbox 360 and the one I have gone back to constantly, and my hopes were suitably high for the sequel. The first game was a chilling at atmospheric game that was part Aliens and part Resident Evil, and Dead Space 2 retains the looks and feel while providing some marked improvements that fans of the original will love.

Set three years after the events of the first Dead Space, the main protagonist Isaac is confined to the mental ward of a hospital, suffering from dementia and haunting visions of his dead girlfriend, who comes to him in creepy flashbacks and cut scenes early in the game. The first acts of the game are rather hazy, as Isaac is suddenly freed from the hospital during an invasion of the Necromorphs from the first game, and when he escapes with his life and begins to make his way through the chaos that surrounds him. After being eased into the game through some expository dialogue, you don the space suit and obtain the weapons and then the real fun starts. The first thing that is noticeable from the start is that Isaac is more fleshed out as a character, having full dialogue and an intriguing back story. The secondary characters, some looking to help and others looking to harm him, are equally compelling and add a depth to the story that felt absent in the first game. The frightening Necromorphs are more aggressive than ever in Dead Space 2, and you will spend a good part of the game fighting them off along with a host of other nightmarish creatures. The key to survival is aiming at their limbs, and this leads to some tense firefights where you are surrounded by enemies and aiming becomes a frantic and sometimes frustrating endeavor.

Believe the hype! Dead Space 2 is everything you could want and expect from a sequel. And then there's more! To date, this is the single scariest/goriest game I have ever played on a console. (Silent Hill, you used to be the victor but come on, it's 2011 and sometimes, you just gotta move on.) (I still say the original Dead Space is the scariest game I have ever played though, but since this is part of the same universe, it still counts!) What makes it scary though?

How about: the music, the creepy atmosphere, the darkness, the fact that you have to rely on the light from your flashlight throughout the entire game (forget Doom 3's flashlight, this is the real deal,) the screaming (from Isaac and others,) the hallucinations, the death animations, the monster sounds, the babies crying, Isaac's (now) warped/skewed perspective of reality, the gore, the blood, the setting and the story. In the same vein, as films like "Even Horizon" and "Sunshine," there is a good dose of story-telling and character setup though none of it is too ground-breaking. What I am trying to say is that while the voice-acting is above-average, it isn't spectacular. Isaac's character is believable this time around, which is a huge improvement and a definite plus from the first game since Isaac was pretty much mute (sorta like a certain physicist from a certain game about killing crabs that like to jump on heads...) Also, part of the whole Dead Space charm lies in the different weapons you use. Though you are ultimately using "mining" tools, the developers have gone the extra mile to show us that just about anything can really be made into a weapon. From the Plasma Cutter and Seeker Rifle to the Contact Beam and Javelin Gun (a personal favorite,) don't these all sound just oh-so-wonderful?

When the original Dead Space came out, it was the new kid on the really, REALLY crowded block of mediocre survival "horror" games that were not even all that "horror-y". After impressing critics and fans alike for its amazing third person gameplay and being incredibly replayable, Dead Space 2 comes back to reclaim its throne of survival horror. But is it as good as the first one?

Dead Space 2 takes everything that was so good from the first game, fixes its few flaws (wonky stomp mechanic, no more!), adds more content, improves the already great graphics, and gets rid of the cheap jump scares and replaces them with truly disturbing scenarios involving Isaac's developing dementia.

Speaking of which, the story of Dead Space 2 now takes place several years after the original game on the floating city dubbed "The Sprawl." Throughout the game, Isaac is haunted by the events of the first while trying to figure out why the government won't leave him alone. His story of survival is a mature, detailed one; something many games that share the title "survival horror" lack.

The gameplay of Dead Space 2 is also very, very fun. The controls have been modified to be much friendlier to the player. You can now reload while not aiming your gun, melee enemies quicker, and use your telekinesis module as a weapon in itself for when ammo gets scarce (and on higher difficulties, IT WILL). This makes the overall game much more enjoyable, and it still has the New-Game+ feature, allowing you to play through the game again to find more advanced gear while also improving the gear you already had. This makes the 8-11 hour (varies depending on the difficulty) campaign much, much longer, and much more rewarding when you get the last suit in the game.

Dead Space 2 is a massive improvement over the already near perfect first game. Buy this game right away if you have any interest in horror.
