Absolute perfection and polish. The developers clearly had a goal in mind and flawlessly executed this game. The gameplay is smooth, seamless, and visually stunning. As with the previous entry, Dead Space 2 leaves you gasping for breath, and straining to collect more ammo to slay the hordes of necromorphs. QTE's (quick time events) are often, so you need to keep on your toes with the x button. There are more varied weapons to upgrade, and the suits now give specific bonuses, in addition to more armor and inventory slots. I wouldn't change anything. On casual, the game is fun for the new-to-FPS gamer, and on hard, it challenges even the most seasoned Necromorph slayers. Personally I bought the game because the replay value is high and there are always new surprises to steel myself for. Definitely rent, or buy this game.
This game is un freakin believable. Dont listen to idiots like the guy who gave it a 3 because u have to pay for online play. that guy is a moron. Yeah you know who you are. Or how bout the tool that gave it a 6 ?? I am stupider after reading his review. Yes it is true that EA sux but they got this one right. WOW ! Games should be separately reviewed for online play and campaign modes anyways. I personally never play online because i have a life so campaign modes are all i play. And this games has a killer campaign mode. Huge canidate for game of the year 2011!!!
I trulely love this game, the graphics are solid, it gives you that creepy trying to expect what happens next feeling. Such as when you play Bioshock, which I'm in love with... I would recommend ANYONE who loves Dead Space (first game) or Bioshock. Or any Sci-Fi Horror game. The Dailouge is easy and understandable, the gameplay is just awesome and exciting every second. The controls are easy and simple, although I wish you could fast just a bit more faster. Multiplayer, is very good for a 3rd person shooter. There's more aliens (forgot their species name) than their are humans, but it equals out because well, the aliens only got their claws and stuff. The humans have guns and everything you use in campaign. Being the alien in multiplayer reminds me of the Alien vs Predator multiplayer, if you loved playing that the alien in there, I think you'll love playing as the alien in Dead Space 2.
