Dead Space 2

Dead Space 2 is a third-person horror survival game in which players must battle an alien infestation straight out of a nightmare. Follow-up game to 2008’s original Dead Space, in this new release players explore a whole new terrifying game environment and battle the Necromorph abominations utilizing new weapons and tools such as the powerful javelin gun and a new space suit with built-in booster rockets. Additional game features include: improved telekinesis powers and online multiplayer functionality.

Collectors Edition includes: Isaac Clark’s collectible replica Plasma Cutter. Plasma Cutter is modeled from the new design in Dead Space 2 and features trigger activated LED lights; The Dead Space 2 Original Soundtrack. Soundtrack features an hour of music compiled from the score of Dead Space 2 and a scoring of the Dead Space 2 featurette; Rare lithograph depicting Necromorph transformation concept art by Visceral Games artist Brett Marting; Isaac Unitology Suit and accompanying Force Gun in-game items. Each offer unique advantages to the player when used in Dead Space 2; Dead Space Extraction (PS3 Only).

Visceral Games did it again with Dead Space 2 by hitting all the notes right. Both the atmosphere and gameplay will satisfy you while the scares, whether it be cheap jump scares or genuine holy shit scares, will give you a memorable experience. If there seems to be one negative, you can say that maybe the story could be better but y’all know it’s about the experience with this game.
