Dead Space 2 is sequel to the 1st game. Here you play as Isaac again and it happens 3 years after the incident in Ishimura. You find your self at a giant space station close to Saturn, you don't remember how you get there but you'll have to go trough the same things again. Dead Space 2 have a lot of things from the 1st one with some new stuff. There more destructive weapons now. There are Javelins, some mines, which are awesome, improved telekinesis which can make limb in to weapons and more. New armor abilities and some tweaks. The graphics are even better, the horror fell is bigger and the sounds are amazing.

More of the same

The popular saying "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" rings popular for Dead Space 2; I loved the original and while playing this version not much had changed, the shocks were still there, the tension was still around however as I was used to it, I kind of knew what to expect.

This is not a bad thing thing however, even though it kind of felt like deja vu, it was still a fine gaming experience, for fans new to the experience they would be better off starting with the original.

Sequel to Dead Space

Usually when people use the term "more of the same" it is used negatively. But when the same is high quality, it is hard to complain.

DS2 hits the same terrifying spots in the players psyche as the first one and makes playing the game in the dark an endeavor not many are willing to try. The story is quite gripping as are the spawns of terror that Clarke will encounter.

There are some nice additions to the first like Zero G movement which feels nice. The weapons are widely varied and create sort of a Aliens movie feeling where you know the enemy is terrifying but you also have the armaments to deliver brutal punishment if necessary. Being alone, though...that is nerve-wrecking.

There is also a multiplayer component but I cannot say anything about that since I haven't tried it. I think Dead Space games are primarily Single Player.

Recommended, if you liked the first.
