Brillant, just pure brilliant. This game will scare you, make you jump, amaze you and keep you entertained for hours on end. The graphics are fantastic, the storyline is superb and the gameplay is second to none, its so addictive and fun to play.
Its got all the tricks which made the first one such a hit but has also improved slightly on certain aspects - not that much needed improving. Example, the slightly awkward-to-read map has been replaced with an excellent arrow pointing system which makes the game alot smoother to navigate. The Zero Gravity is now alot more realistic, you actually float around instead of the moving from platform-to-platform used in Dead Space 1.
All the weapons are still here, with some excellent new one's aswell. A special mention to the Javelin gun which is fantastic, it basically fire's a spear which you can impale the enemy and stick them to the walls, then with its alternative fire you can send an electric shock to the same spear to cause extra damage. Also, if you fully upgrade the Javelin gun, after you've sent an electric shock through the spear it then detonate's and blow's up. Its totally brutal!!!!!
All the old Necromorphs are all in attendance, but again, with some excellent new one's. Also, a special mention to the Stalkers which are brilliantly done. Best to describe them as shy Velociraptors which don't like to be seen and they are out for your blood, they hide behind things and when you let your guard down they come charging at you with a high pitch scream and a deadly head butt to knock you to the ground.
Anyway, ive talked enough, there is so much content in this game i could go on forever.
This game is superb, its really hard to see how this game cannot become game-of-the-year and its only February!!!!!
Buy the game, turn the sound up, turn the lights off and enjoy the ride!!!!
