5.0 out of 5 stars Not up to its predecessor, yet a fantastic game!, 22 Nov 2011
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Dead Space 2 (PS3) (Video Game)
While DS2 is a fantastic survival horror game, I still prefer DS1 due to several aspects. First, the mood of DS1 was far superior, Titan station just can't compete with the Ishimura. Furthermore, the art direction of the game and thus the whole look is inferior to DS1 not in terms of polygons but from a design standpoint. The game itself relies far too much on darkness and disorientation for my personal taste. The gameplay itself is somewhat improved, but unfair parts are now much more common with hordes of enemies pummeling the player and the whole experience becoming more of a repetetive task than before. The soundtrack is worse than that of DS1, if that is even possible. Story sequences are now more detailed and cinematic, yet the sense of urgency that DS1 provided is somehow less palpable. All in all, DS1 was almst impossible to top, and that is exactly what happend. DS2 is a really fantastic game that fails to surpass its incredible predecessor. 4.5 stars, a sure thing to own.
