I played the first Dead Space and was underwhelmed, but I have to say that this game was much better than the first. This one keeps you on your toes with aliens/monsters jumping out of vents (like the first one). But it also had the scavenger bot allows you to find extra materials to build and upgrade both your suit and weapons. The ability to make some cool weapons and upgrade them is a nice touch as well. The scenery in the outerspace level is amazing. If you want 20 to 30 hours of fun this is a good game.

This game is good. Fast, scary, violent action. The story kind of sucks though, takes forever to do anything. Bad cop out on a awesome twist at the end. A ton of back tracking especially in the last act. But this game still was awesome.
...you should dislike this one somewhat less. Being no fan of the horror genre in general, and not having liked Dead Space before, I find this one a bit less dislikable. I still think that neither Dead Space nor any other of its ilk even holds a candle to old Doom 3 even today. Still, I find this episode a bit more playable even though I find the game still clunky and uninspiring. Nothing in the game so far - having finished the first 4 chapters so far - is particularly novel, interesting, or unique. We've seen it all before. Just barely worth a rental to me.
