Product Description

Intergalactic engineer and Necromorph-slayer Isaac Clarke is back for another spine-tingling serving of survival horror. With larger environments, a host of new weaponry, and an all-new multiplayer mode, Dead Space 2 is an interstellar sequel that's out of this world.

Engineer Isaac Clarke returns for another blood-curdling adventure in the sequel to the critically acclaimed Dead Space. After waking from a coma on a massive space city known as "The Sprawl", the lone survivor of a horrific alien infestation finds himself confronting a catastrophic new nightmare.

Battling dementia, hunted by the government, and haunted by visions of his dead girlfriend, Isaac will do whatever it takes to save himself and dominate the gruesome onslaught. With an arsenal of tools to dismember Necromorphs and new determination, an engineer will bring the terror to space.

Dead Space 2 features new tools to gruesomely slice and dismember the Necromorphs complement Isaac's signature plasma cutter, empowering him as he meets new characters, explores epic Zero-G environments, and fights against a relentless Necromorph onslaught. Survival isn't the only thing on Isaac's mind in Dead Space 2 - this time, he calls the shots!

 

  • Chaos Hits The Sprawl:
  • Caught in the middle of a horrific infestation that's decimating a massive space city, Isaac Clarke will dismember, impale, and stomp his way across the Sprawl
  • Blast through the Church of Unitology, jet across the Solar Array, and infiltrate the CEC facility on the path to survival

 

  • Master The Terror:
  • Familiar as well as all-new grotesque creatures lurk around every corner
  • Wield a set of devastating tools to bring the terror to space. Impale Necromorphs into the walls with the Javelin, use improved telekinesis to turn limbs into d

Manufacturer's Description

It’s two years since Visceral Games and Electronic Arts unleashed Dead Space on an unsuspecting world – which, hopefully, is just about enough time for your shredded nerves to have recovered. Which is just as well, since the second instalment of the space-survival-horror game is significantly better than its predecessor in every way imaginable. Which means that, no matter who you are, it will scare the pants off you.

The action resumes three years after the events of the first game, with a more seasoned, embittered (and, apparently, mentally unstable) Isaac Clarke waking up in the Sprawl, a giant, dystopian city on Titan, one of Saturn’s moons. He must, of course, overcome deranged behaviour and betrayal from his fellow humans, plus hordes of the most disgusting, rotting, blood-crazed necromorphs ever seen in a videogame.

This time around, Isaac is better equipped to do so: he moves quicker, and has better melee attacks and weapons (the Javelin Gun and the Ripper are particular highlights) than before. His Kinesis has been improved so that you can pick up necromorph limbs, for example, and fire them off in combat. And if you decide you’re not so keen on a weapon after all, you can re-spec at a workbench, reclaiming your Power Nodes which can then be used to upgrade the weapons you prefer.

The necromorphs are even more fearsome than in Dead Space, with new varieties which require very different strategies if you are going to dispatch them. The fairly self-explanatory Pukers, for example, need to be taken out with head-shots if you want to avoid being sprayed with acidic bile. The Pack – swarms of mutated children – must be kept at arms’ length, and are best dealt with by a weapon with a large blast radius. The terrifying noises made by the necromorphs as they attempt to rip you limb from limb contribute massively to Dead Space 2’s already terrifying atmosphere, adding to chilling lighting, music  and sound effects, and small but effective devices such as vents which suddenly spew steam in your direction.

Thankfully, there are breaks from the relentlessness, provided by a decent amount of the clever puzzles for which Dead Space is famed. Many of which, naturally, feature negotiating deadly traps or aligning crucial objects in zero-gravity conditions, or dexterous manipulation of objects using Kinesis and Stasis. Dead Space 2’s storyline – which we won’t divulge as we don’t want to spoil it for you – hangs together and flows magnificently, with some real edge-of-the-seat cliff-hangers and set pieces marking the ends of individual chapters.

The Sprawl itself has a huge impact on gameplay: as it is set on an atmosphere-free moon, you can often shoot out windows triggering a catastrophic decompression; time it right, and you’ll be able to shoot a switch to close emergency shutters after any necromorphs present have been sucked outside.

And finally, Dead Space 2 features a four-on-four multiplayer mode, in which a team of humans seeks to achieve objectives, while teams of necromorphs attempt to eviscerate them with their distinctive attacks. The game’s multiplayer mode has been likened to Left4Dead, which should excite all gamers in the know.

If you like horror, you’ll love Dead Space 2 – and if you like third-person action-adventure games, you’ll love it, too. And if you’re a particular fan of survival-horror games, then Dead Space 2 will be the biggest treat you will be able to get your hands on this year.

5.0 out of 5 stars 3rd person survival horror at its finest 31 Jan 2011
Access Method:Box|Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Dead space 2 is everything a sequel should be... It carries all the same charm, horror, gore, stunning graphics and fluid game play that the original dead space offered, only everything has been tweaked and refined to give the game a much more enjoyable and smoother experience. Melee attacks are fast and fluid, the camera moves much quicker and more responsive, telekinesis is more effective, and the anti-gravity rooms now let you fly freely in any direction you like instead of only being able to jump from platform to platform. Again there is no HUD, all the information you need (ammo count, stasis charge, health) are all visible on Isaac's suit which I personally feel is an excellent touch as it frees up the entire screen from cluttering health bars and ammo counts, plus it means you're view isn't obstructed when you catch a glimpse of a "stalker" (a new enemy for dead space 2) peeking his head round at you in the distance waiting to attack.

The game carries on the story from Dead Space one following Issac Clarke, an engineer who was aboard the Ishimura searching for his lost girlfriend. 3 years after the events of the original Dead Space Isaac wakes up on a huge space city called the Sprawl. He has no idea how he got there but he needs to escape and put an end to everything once and for all. After all the trauma Isaac experienced during the events on the Ishimura he is now suffering with dementia and constant visions of his dead girlfriend. Isaac's mental instabilities add a really engrossing twist on the story and you never know when he is going to have a vision, they are very unpredictable and can make you jump out of your skin if you're not prepared for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing! 1 Mar 2011
Access Method:Box|Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Dead Space 2 is simply one of the best games I have ever played.

SINGLE PLAYER
You resume in you role as Isaac Clarke from the first dead space, awakening on a giant space station on one of Saturn's moons know as "The sprawl". Straight away things go wrong and once again you find yourself in the middle of a Necromorph outbreak, but this time, you battling against your mind as well.
Isaac is no longer a silent hero. He has a voice and a face. In my opinion, this is great, as the player now feels more emotionally attached now he's a person, not just a mute shell.
The main story line is good, and there are some really good plot twists at points. But the best thing about the story of the game is Isaacs battle with his dementia. Hallucinations make for great Jump scares, and you can feel the emotion as he battles with his inner demons.
As for game play, the environment is great, and is beautifully complimented by the music. It sets up a real atmosphere of tension and fear. To this day this is one of two games that have scared me, and that is not an easy thing for a game to do!
The control system is great. The Resident Evil series should take note, Being able to move, AND aim? Shock horror! But in all seriousness the controls are convenient and easy to pick up.
The weapons are very, very cool, the javelin gun and the seeker rifle being two of my favourites. Stasis (the ability to slow down enemies)and kenisis (being able to pick up objects and throw them at enemies)add a whole new dynamic to combat. Using stasis on an enemy, shooting his arm off the using it to pin him against a wall never gets old.

This is a fantastic game! Once again you play as the character Isaac Clarke, from the first game. This time, the setting is a huge space station - set in orbit of Saturn's moon Titan - called `the Sprawl'. As a direct sequel, Dead Space 2 is again a horror-survival game. If you enjoyed the first instalment, then in all probability you'll enjoy this game too.

The setting is new, and far larger and grander as compared to the first game, but the 'feel' is similar. The graphics have slightly improved (those of the first game were great, so those of the sequel can only be described as `really great').

A review by someone else acknowledges the graphics and sound are great, and the game play fun, but that reviewer wasn't satisfied - wanting more. I have to disagree with the latter aspect. Yes, it really is fun to play - running around, blasting and stomping alien zombies - and the game is large enough, and demanding enough, to be satisfying. Being a sequel, one should expect a continuation - and that is exactly what Dead Space 2 delivers.

The on-line multi-player is lots of fun. You play as part of a team - either humans or Necromorphs. This addition to the game means that players will be returning again and again ...

If you enjoy sci-fi blended with horror, as a 3rd person shooter / survival game, then this is for you!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome! 14 Feb 2013

Access Method:Box| Platform for Display:Xbox 360| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
You will need to play the first Dead Space before you play this, in order to understand the story. But as a Sci-Fi horror/action game, it's probably one of the best around.
