Engineer Isaac Clarke returns for another blood-curdling adventure in the sequel to the critically acclaimed Dead Space™. After waking from a coma on a massive space city known as "The Sprawl", the lone survivor of a horrific alien infestation finds himself confronting a catastrophic new nightmare. Battling dementia, hunted by the government, and haunted by visions of his dead girlfriend, Isaac will do whatever it takes to save himself and dominate the gruesome onslaught. With an arsenal of tools to dismember Necromorphs and new determination, an engineer will bring the terror to space.
Chaos Hits The Sprawl: Caught in the middle of a horrific infestation that’s decimating a massive space city, Isaac Clarke will dismember, impale, and stomp his way across the Sprawl. Blast through the Church of Unitology, jet across the Solar Array, and infiltrate the CEC facility on the path to survival.
Master The Terror: Familiar as well as all-new grotesque creatures lurk around every corner. Wield a set of devastating tools to bring the terror to space. Impale Necromorphs into the walls with the Javelin, use improved telekinesis to turn limbs into deadly weapons, plant powerful dismembering trip mines, or create a hull-breach to suck a group of monsters out into space.
Tear Through Space In Zero G: Fire up Isaac’s suit boosters to rocket around in zero gravity like never before. Explore the depths of the Sprawl and encounter new weightless combat and physics-based puzzles with full 360 degree movement.
Online Multiplayer: For the first time, experience the horror of a Necromorph outbreak with others. Fight in skirmishes around the Sprawl and strategically dismember your friends.

A lot of people complain that DS2 isn't as scary as DS1. The problem with that complaint was that DS1 wasn't scary at all and the horror and scare moments felt forced and ineffective. The game was also extremely repetitive. However, DS2 fixes in my eyes all of these problems. Absolutely perfect pacing. The game stopped focusing on horror and instead focused on being a thriller and insane. A well polished and absolutely enjoyable game, and I hated DS1.

Dead Space 2 does the horror genre so much good. It has genuine scares and is one of the most immersive experiences that you'll find in the past couple of years. The creepy soundtrack and better graphics help add to one of the best examples of the horror genre in recent times.

Absolutely insane! the first Dead Space was so new and had touched on a new era of sci-fi horror gaming which i personally thought was unbeatable....until Dead Space 2 arrived! Its safe to say that Dead Space is one of the few games that actually makes you jump and makes you weary about what kind of hideous monstrosity will be around the next bend. The plot is full in its entirety and really puts you into the mind frame of the returning lead character Isaac Clarke who along with new tech and weaponry will cut, slice and tear limb from limb the necromorph hordes. Couldn't stop playing at the end and delighted there will be more to come in the future. One of the best series' and games of this generation.

I honestly expected Dead Space 2 to be just more of the same as in DS1, but while that may be somewhat true, it's not 100%. Like many modern sequels, it takes what the original was and builds on it. There's more terror, more adrenaline, more necromorph "WHAT DID I JUST SEE?!?!?!" situations and a whole lotta slayin' goin' on! This is Dead Space, do your best to stay alive!
