This may very well be one of the best survival horror game to exist, maybe even more so than Resident Evil 4 (possibly both) and Silent Hill 2 (maybe). The original Dead Space was something special and its remake was top-notch (which I also gave a 10/10 to), but Dead Space 2 took it to a whole new level in every way. (We won’t talk about the massive disappointment that is Dead Space 3)
If Dead Space was a prototype, then this sequel is the finished product. Dead Space 2 loses some of the frightening charm of the original, but the end result is a much more varied and solid experience.
Dead Space 2 is an absolute treat for anyone who thinks there's to much goofing around and too little trembling with horror in today's games. And even if you're not exactly on the lookout for a scary game, Dead Space 2 still comes heartily recommended as it is a fantastic journey from start to finish with an enormous concentration of quality.
Dead Space 2 doesn't bring with it the same sense of experiencing something utterly new and innovative that its predecessor did. But it's nonetheless a terrific game, with a campaign that simultaneously leaves you satisfied and eager for more, and intense multiplayer that gives you a great reason to keep coming back to this terrifying universe.
Probably the best survival horror game to ever exist. Hopefully we get a remake. It improves apon the first Dead Space(2008) in almost every single way with Isaac talking allowing you to connect with him and the overall story. It also features much more big set pieces then the original did this includes better animations for deaths. The multiplayer PvP was fun also.
Если быть кратким - это фантастическая игра. Почему же тогда 7/10?.
Я чувствую, что разработчики действительно прислушались к критике, которую фанаты высказали в адрес первой игры, улучшив многие механики. По моему мнению, им не хватало в этом продолжении, так это оставаться верными корням первой игры. Темные, тесные коридоры с небольшим пространством, которые давят на тебя своей атмосферой, вечная паранойя игрока, что в любой момент он может быть в опасности. Я уверен, что есть геймеры, которые жаловались на отсутствие разнообразия локаций в первой игре, но теперь, когда они получили эту гигантскую космическую станцию, довольны ли они результатом? Действительно ли это заставляло их бояться еще больше и съеживаться при мысли о том, что прямо за углом может появиться еще один некроморф готовый выскочить? Я не знаю.
Compared to the first game, Dead Space 2 was somewhat disappointing. It plays more like an action game, relying more on jump scares than atmospheric creepy-ness. They just send horde after horde at you. I much preferr the slow-paced but thrilling game that Dead Space was. Overall though, Dead Space 2 is still an above-average action game.
I must say i had high hopes for this game. Being knew to the DS series i had decided to take the oldest one i could find on shelves which (unfortunately) was Dead Space 2. While i prefer to always try and start with the first of a series i did some research and found out it is supposedly a great way to start off this series if your new. When i first started this game it seemed okay but the enemies quickly got old. The jump scares were a bit startling at the beginning but more or less towards the half-way point they mainly were expected. The character of Isaac felt rather generic to me. He seemed to me just a regular horror movie person who is wanted by basically everyone because there is something special about them. The guns were very unique but i feel a major downfall was its multiplayer. While i never had high hopes for a horror genre to go good with multiplayer i at least expected something better than, play a match, try to kill endless waves of necromorphs who usually try to kill you as you spawn, get killed, try again, repeat. It seems as though they just wanted to put in a multiplayer so as people wouldn't complain about there not being one. The enemies are both unique and interesting but towards the end there were barely any new ones and just harder versions of the older version's.
Dead Space 1 set a very high bar. All Dead Space 2 managed to do was limbo under it. The plot and concept were fine. DS2 expands on the ground covered by the first game nicely, without going off on any irrelevant tangents like some sequels have been prone to do. The disappointment comes in how the gameplay was implemented, the trial-and-error methods of the deathtraps in particular. The only way they could have made it more blatant is if they paused the action on occasion to flash the message: "We interrupt your regularly scheduled first person horror survival shooter to bring you this cinematic that plays like Dragon's Lair."
