    Short and sweet, and by that I mean an hour of intense violence and paranoia. This was the short story equivalent to Dead Space 2's main game. They brought back almost all of the necromorphs from the main story and added one of my favorites from the first game as well. The game continues to keep me on my toes with the necromorphs surprising me. The action was intense and the story wasShort and sweet, and by that I mean an hour of intense violence and paranoia.

The game continues to keep me on my toes with the necromorphs surprising me. The action was intense and the story was good, but the bread and butter of this add on was the end. I won't spoil it, but believe me the ending good although it does hit a bit close to home of one of the Dead Space animated movies... Like I said in the beginning; my opinion is that the add on is short and sweet. Expand

    This review contains spoilers. Severed is good but not great. It's about 3 hours, maybe less but its overall a alright experience. The thing that was disappointing was that u never get to see to much new places (going all the way back where dead space 2 begins), and that there is only 1 new weapon. The positive things about the DLC is that it's $7 bucks, a fun enemy to fight that was in the first dead space (the twitcher), the main character Gabe Weller (even though u don't get to know him that well) he was still pretty badass, and the best thing i like about the DLC was the ending. It was eventful and they put my 2 favorite enemy's together to fight against at the same time: the stalkers & the pack, but also there's a last stand part that was epic. Collapse

    Good atmosphere as expected, but old levels and only a few hours of gameplay brings this down a bit.

    This repetition, combined with Severed's short runtime(two chapters beaten in around two hours), keeps it squarely in the realm of diehard devotees. [May 2011, p.75]

    Severed is not bad for a $6 DLC, but I can't shake the feeling that this (severed) piece is just to whet our appetite for bigger things to come.
