Played the 1st one loved it. This one just extends past that. The graphics are impressive, along with the gameplay. The story is what really sticks out in this one though. With Clark making a return along with his wife makes a great action love story. Not to mention the horror scenes to go with it. All in all this a great addition to the franchise except for the fact that you need a code to play online that is located in the manual. So if you are getting this game on gamefly for multiplayer...just buy it. The online side of it includes a trial to unplayed copies but only lasts 2 days. The mulitplayer is full of action and also the option to play as the necromorphs is another great addition but not worthy of a 9.99 buy on the PSN store for those who dont have access to the manual code. With that said this is a great pick up for some single player and multiplayer action. Lets just hope they will develop another one.
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!!!
