    Dead Space 2 has a decent campaign, but all too familiar.

    Isaac Clarke returns here in the 2nd installment along with the same environmental design and a few powerful necromorphs. The ammo shortage, creepy level design, gravity, powerful arsenal and upgrades all make a return i... Read Full Review

    A solid sequel that outdoes the original

    Dead Space 2 gives you a Bioshock feel especially early on. Whereas the Ishimura just gave the feeling of a functional ship, the environments in 2 feel like the sum of their parts. The sense of loss and the confusion of ... Read Full Review

    Dead Space 2 Review

    After the unexpected success of Dead Space, it was inevitable that EA churned out a sequel, but this game fared a lot better than many sequels do, in terms of quality. Visceral took a masterpiece of a game and they adde... Read Full Review

    Do you remember when Survival Horror used to be scary? Well, Dead Space 2 can give you a Heart-Pumping Death!

    I love survival horror games, RE 3 was my first surival-horror game and I just couldn't stop playing Resident Evil games. Sadly RE began to change from Survival-Horror to Survival Action then just purely Action... I was... Read Full Review

    Dead Space 2 is a survival horror 3rd person action game.

    I was reading the excellent reviews of Dead Space II and I can't help but take the game down a couple notches. Although Dead Space II is a fun game I don't think it should be getting more then an 8.0. So you play as Is... Read Full Review

    Dead Space 2 is an atmospheric space journey once more, but not as unforgiving as the first installment.

    I have to be honest with you, I purchased Dead Space 2 when it was first released, but for some unknown reason I stopped playing it halfway. I can't think of what the reason for such a long delay was, but boy I hope it w... Read Full Review
