You wouldn't believe how much money I had to spend on new underpants after beating Dead Space 2. This game is s!#t your pants scary! Though this game isn't as scary as the original, it will still make you jump more than once. The game will take you about 10-12 hours to complete and that whole time you will be at the edge of your seat. There is one chapter in the game that takes place in the USG Ishumura, the ship from the original game. The ship is covered in duck tape and is in direpair. This makes the ship even more scary and it doesn't help that the ghost of your dead girlfriend is whispering to you, blaming you for her death and the horrific events of the first game. This section is very tense and one of the most memorable parts of the game. Speaking of your dead girlfriend, Nicole is a very complex character. She is pretty much Isaac's inspiration for his mission and his conscience. Nicole is so intimidating when she is angry, but Isaac always acts in control. Their relationship is very interesting and their interactions are one of the better parts of the game. The replay value of the game is very high and the multiplayer mode will keep you invested for even more hours. So simply do one thing, buy this game, you won't regret it.
This is a bigger game on a bigger planet and Isaac just doesn't care. The game is a major improvement on the first one and the only flaw is that I have to wait longer for the sequel. This game blends action, horror, and the stress of prolonged silence in an environment where you see a dozen ways the enemy could come, and you walk through it without a hitch, though the moment you enter an area where you have no idea where they come from, they hit you. Isaac also gets a ton of character improvement, you get to know more about him and he speaks more, becoming less of a silent protagonist and more of a developed hero.
