I saw a lot of reviews saying that you needed to install the games through Origin, that is not the case. You can download the games through Amazon and install them through the download.

On to the games the games are fun and creepy. I enjoy suspense, horror, sci-fi games and these games fit the bill. I plan to purchase Dead Space 3 when it becomes cheaper. i do not have much time to play games right now due to school and work so when I can get a great deal on games I want I go ahead and get them. What I have played so far I have enjoyed.

If you have never played either Dead Space game then do yourself a favor and get this. I would recommend playing the games in order for full story effect. Use surround sound if at all possible. The developers put a lot of thought and work into using the sound for these games. This is top notch gaming.

I remember when I first heard about the Dead Space series, and it immediately piqued my interest. I'm a sucker for science fiction, but with all the Halo's and Gears of War's, I was looking for something a little more intriguing than your average first person shooter. I was not disappointed.

There is a certain unique style to Dead Space that I've grown to like. The over-the-shoulder third person view that doesn't break, even for story or menus, does wonders for the immersion. It felt like I was always in the thick of the action, even when I had to check my inventory. Newtonian zero-gravity? Fighting off monsters in vacuum? Exploring an abandoned space hulk? I'm sold! All of it helped me feel like I was genuinely in the shoes of the main character, Isaac Clarke. This feeling was all the more rewarding in the second game when I felt some of the same PTSD as Isaac as he struggled his way through Titan Station.

The major gripe I have with the games is predictability. While they certainly execute part of it well, sometimes it's painfully predictable when you're going to get hit with a jump scare or mobbed by enemies. "Oh, just found a room full of ammo and health packs? Guess who's gonna get ganked the next room over!"

Another facet of the predictability is the formula of each chapter (in both games) follow the same pattern to a T with few exceptions. Isaac is sent somewhere to fix something/escape somewhere. An "unforseen" obstacle prevents him from reaching said goal. Isaac must fix two or three other things to bypass obstacle and reach goal. It became mildly irritating, because I was able to predict what was going to happen next.

Make sure you play these in order, this goes for 1, 2 and 3. The story/scare factor is best with the original, but the game play mechanics, graphics, and smoothness get better with 2 and then 3. Note: 2 and 3 both are still great games, just not as absolutely terrifying.. play this game at night and you will get an amazing experience. You might have trouble sleeping, but you will get your thrills without a doubt. First play through lasted around 13 for me on normal difficulty. Playing on the harder difficulties will make this game even scarier... play at your own risk lol

I really wasn't very excited to play this game. I've passed on it during “Sale” events multiple times in the past, but strong word of mouth and another enticing sale (both DS1 & DS2 for $7.99 download) finally convinced me to give it a try. I started out with a Love/Hate review: very pretty graphics, excellent sound, and good performance on my laptop, but I just kept going thru the checklist of sci-fi video game clichés in my head:

• Get separated from the group and watch them get killed thru plexi-glass
• Crew mutated by virus or alien artifact
• Video/Audio/Text Diaries scattered around to slowly fill in the story
• Sick Bays / Experiment Rooms with body parts, tools, and blood everywhere
• Ship turning into an alien or living entity (ok, this didn’t happen but sure looked like it in several sections)
• To repair the ship/escape pod, you need Part A, Part B, and Part C, all scattered around the area
• Heavy Religious or Demonic overtones

Then there was the very obvious triggered events that had Doom 3 written all over it: Step past a hidden line, hallway goes dark and creature kills you from behind. Restore from Save, tip-toe to the hidden trigger, turn and shoot. Variations of this were everywhere, and every time you hit a large open room, or a long hallway, you began to watch for where that hidden trigger might be.

But here’s the thing: After the first couple chapters, I was able to ignore most of the mechanics and clichés and enjoy it for being a darn good game. The graphics and the sound certainly went a long way, but the gameplay was actually fun, and when it was all put together, there were several wow moments.

Got this dual pack on sale, both games activated fine on EA's Origin service. I'm writing this review since some people seem to be marking it down for not being able to activate the games on Steam. Most newer EA games won't, since EA launched their own online service.

I use a wireless Xbox 360 controller with my computer and both games work perfectly fine, no issues (unlike many Ubisoft PC games). Graphically, both games look fantastic despite not being the kind of games that push your graphics card hard.

Please note that Dead Space 2 does use DRM that only allows it to be activated on about 5 computers, but it does have a deactivation tool.

As for the games themselves, they are modern survival horror classics (although a bit more action-oriented than classic games are). Dead Space 2 obviously benefited from a bigger budget and has much better story-telling and set pieces. Overall though, you can't go wrong on these games if you are even a remote fan of the genre.

Highly recommended!
