Product Description

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!

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 deadly weapons, plant powerful dismembering trip mines, or create a hull-breach to suck a group of monsters out into space

 

  • Tear Through Space In Zero G:

Fire up Isaac'

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.

First things first, if you have not played Dead Space 1 yet, I heartily recommend you go and buy that first. Its half the price of this and still looks amazing. The gameplay is pretty similar too.

The game itself is a 3rd person over the shoulder shooter. The key word here is "over the shoulder". Your character doesn't stand in the centre of the screen, he is on the left. Your view is as if you were looking through a camera mounted on their right hand shoulder. Now to start with, I hated this. However, once I'd got past the first couple of chapters of Dead Space 1, I was used to it. So by the time I started Dead Space 2 it seemed totally normal. In fact, it adds to the feeling of being trapped and confined, as you never feel totally at ease.

However, your character is now a lot easier to control than in Dead Space 1. The mouse seems a lot more responsive and everything just feels more natural, for want of a better word. The weapons are seem easier to aim too, though that may be because I have played through Dead Space 1 recently and am just better at it now.

Other enhancements to the gameplay include end of level bosses. Unlike DS1, where you ended the level by stepping onto the tram and going to a different location, now you have to confront a big boss. This feels very retro but there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. Also, you don't start out in your somewhat freaky costume. Instead, you are unmasked and in a straightjacket, and spend the first part of the game running around without a gun.

Old favourites are back too. You still get bullet time and a gravity gun right from the word go (well nearly). Save stations are still liberally scattered about the place, and weapons still need to be upgraded.

Assuming that most people looking at this game will have played the original;

Pros:
-Graphics have improved since the original, even without maxing everything (see later for performance)
-The story is solid and continues the overall Dead Space 'lore' nicely
-Issac now talks! He even has a decent sense of humor (IMO) :)
-The sound is as strong as the original - combined with the dark and moody atmosphere it really draws you in and leads to quite a few 'jump away from the screen' moments when something unexpected happens
-The puzzles are varied and challenging, without being too taxing
-Doesnt feel like the console port i was half expecting - though the controls may get a bit cramped if you dont have a 5+ button mouse.

Cons:
Hard to find much wrong with the game, but if im being picky...
-First play through took 10 hours, with pretty much everything explored. Not too short in itself, and with the high replay value from new kit available in the second play, and the online (not tried yet), its pretty good by modern standards
-Its quite linear, with a fair few 'on the rails' sections. No more so than the first game though, and if you want freedom to do what you like, buy Dragon Age or Stalker (RPGs)
-DRM. Always irks me a bit. A 'Release date check' on first run, request for serial number and EA online login were all its taken. I have always-on internet so not sure if itll play without it (i think not from what ive read). End of the day i bought the game legit, had an EA account already and have always-on internet, so its not a problem to me. Limited installs are out of order really, but ill get bored of it way before i reformat 5 times!

PERFORMANCE
Well ive got:
-Q6600 Intel core 2 quad running at 2.

Love it. Annoying you canot jump but love it.

Well...except the ending that is! Lol. Boss in too hard or possibly inmpossible without the right weapons which...well is stupid as you only carry four and the little umm sections where you buy weapons are a ways back from the last chapter meaning you have to fight your way past the horrid creatures again, twice probably.

However forgetting this this title turned out to be better than many big name titles I also bought and I certainly did not expect that.

Along with the fact that both this and Alien Isolation are two of the better titles with others installed being Mass Effect 2 (yes OK good too as is...), Kingdoms Of Amalur, Dragon Age Origins, Call Of Juarez, The Witcher 2, The Witcher EE, Sleeping Dogs Definitve Edition (would be best if not for utter crap controls and a bad port), Call Of Duty 4, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfare/Future Soldier/Phantoms, Deus Ex Human Revolution (love it), Fallout 3, Fallout New Vegas and Skyim with the last three being my favourites (New Vegas over Fallout 3 any day).

Yes, yes I know some of them are old titles, I have been in....hibernation and trying to play catch up here, lol.

Good graphics, engaging story line and quite a few scary moments that had me pushing the chair back to 'get away' from what was attacking me. I've played about two thirds of the game so far and I personally it is as good as the first, if not better because there is better characterisation.

Dead Space 2 is an over the shoulder shooter. The graphics are fine and there was no lag, loading pauses or other in game glitches that I could detect in a playthrough to the end. The story revolves around our man Isaac, who awakens to find himself stranded within a space station and, initially, trussed up in a straight jacket. In a rather familiar plot to FPS gamers, he must fight his way through an untold amount of ghoulies to reach a position where he may undo the hell around him.

This game is unmistakably a console designed one and as such the atmosphere of the story line suffers as do your hopes for intelligently designed PC games. If you are after a bit of a scare, DOOM 3 will make you jump out of your seat much more than Dead Space 2. However, with regards to an adrenaline rush in your fight for survival, this game certainly plays its part. It does become a bit repetitive though as the story progresses

CONTROLS are a little problematic in that one needs the finger dexterity of a concert pianist to get the best out of their character and weapons. Too many keys to be used at the same time. Perhaps this is due to the fact that the controls didn't map well onto a keyboard. Relating to console games, here's something I didn't like: Your character will often be grabbed or suffocated Alien style - In this scenario you have to mash the letter 'E' on your keyboard in order to escape. In fact, you have to hit 'E' about 20 times a second for about a minute to get a result. I don't think my keyboard likes that and I know my neighbours below me didn't as they probably thought I was trying to drill through my floor and into their ceiling.

PLAY TIME is about 10 hours all told with everything done. Monster design is varied and fun with a few quirks that keep you interested.
