Dead Space was a great game and they added just enough features to make this one even better. They didn't overwhelm it with new things to ruin the game. (like resident evil did). Playing the first isn't required... but it does help a lot.
Good: Pretty much everything about it is good. It has thrill, horror, and action to the gameplay. You get a diversity of weapons and actions to help with battle and the leveling system is good. You can level up the outfit (rig), your stasis ability, and your weapons as you find the schematics for them.
Bad: Having to play the game a minimum of twice to get the all the achievements is a pain. Its a short game (roughly 10hrs) but I hate repeating the same actions in a game.
Ugly: Just like I mentioned for the first, the "hardcore" difficulty is too hard. You can only save 3 times and there are no checkpoints. I enjoy a challenge but have to be almost perfect at a game is a pain.

This is exactly was a survival horror game should be. It constantly leaves you on the edge of your seat, More jump scares than you could ever want, leaves you praying that you have enough ammo to make it to the next save station. I can't say enough good things about this game. Rent it wait till is dark turn off all the lights and play you won't be disappointed.
