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!

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.

Along the way through the game you will pick up video and audio logs of the crew which will help you understand what has happened on the ship.
The atmosphere of the game is amazing, I was looking for a game to entrall me and shake me up, and I have gotten too used to strategy games where nothing surprises me. The baddies will attack you from unexpected directions at times, you think you may be safe hiding in a spot and then they are on you! You can collect credits along the way and when you happen upon a digital store you can buy the usual goods, ammo, weapons, health etc... The game also adds the element that you do not get access to every weapon as you go through the game, you need to find a schematic of it then download it at the store so the item can be purchased.Read more ›
Isaac Clarke's journey continues with him waking up from a coma on a massive space station called "The Sprawl". As well as the constant threat from the Necromorphs, Isaac must also has to battle against the station's govenrment and visions of his dead girlfriend. Outnumbered and haunted he has to incover the truth of the Marker.
The gameplay is a third-person sci-fi shooter. You are able to wield many furistic weapons to help you fight the Necromorphs ranging from the iconic Plasma Cutter to the Javelin Gun and even the Flamethrower. There is a lot of variety to the ways you can defeat your eneimes, disember the limbs so eneimies cannot walk or stick them to the wall with the Javelin Gun's spears. Also there are loads of different types of Necropmorphs to encounter and fight, from small explosive Necromoprh babies to huge powerful Brutes. All have they're own unique attacks and weaknesses which need to be learnt in order to survive.
Dead Space 2 also includes puzzles to overcome, for example you will often have to hack a computer system or even arrange solar panels. Each puzzle will test your brain but are fairly easy to figure out. The puzzles are very good for holding back the tension and nail biting atmosphere.
The visuals of the game are fantastic. The textures are done perfectly and it all looks so real even for a futuristic game. The way the licks flicker and shadows are generated are presented very well. The graphics of the Necromorphs are also brilliant and look more terrifying than ever.
Dead Space is famous for its horror and tense atmosphere. In the second game, none of these feelings are lost.Read more ›
I played Dead Space and I loved it, the isolation of space, the random noises scaring you, the story, and of course the inhuman enemies. So when I knew that Dead Space 2 was coming I got very excited and scared at the same time. This new Dead Space could turn out to be a great game or it could be a uptaded copy of the first. I'm glad to say that it is not only great as it is phenomenal.
Story wise is very good, changing the setting from the Ishimura to a new location, introducing new characters, adds more depth to the story and more plot twists that poor Isaac will have to deal with while trying to survive another necromorph invasion. But I'll put here a little spoiler. Don't forget about the Ishimura when playing this game.(Wink)
The sound is trully amazing, they took the best that Dead Space had to offer and added the sounds of a space stacion that was full of people and left in a hurry leaving things running and operating by themselves that really adds to the loneliness of the character and to the envolving surroundings. The sounds of the necromorphs was also uptaded, while keeping the original sounds for the original necromorphs the new ones have distintive sounds to them and it's easy to identify them. And yes the way that use music to indicate that enemies are present is still there so you will alwways know they are there although it does not help you find them specially when you are being stalked by one of the new necromorphs, just a heads up(Wink)
Graphicaly it's awsome, The new suits, weapons, locations and enemies are a great improvement on the fisrt game. Also the game is more bright now due to not being inside the hull of a ship but on a space station with great windows that show saturn in the distance.Read more ›
