Everything that made Dead Space the horror/shooter/sci-fi success that it was returns in this emphatic sequel. The action is brutal, the graphics are stunning, the plotline is gripping and the tension is palpable. I put this into my machine as soon as I got home after Uni and sat down in the dark for another epic Dead Space experience. I wasn't disappointed. The action is far more frequent and terrifying than the first game, but it hasn't turned into a run-and-gun experience at all. In fact, with the new plotline, Dead Space 2 is twice the tense, terrifying, suspenseful survival game it's predecessor was. If you enjoyed Dead Space then you simply must have the sequel.
Aliens meets Dawn of the Dead meets Pandorum. You will need new trousers. Isaac is back, and he's better than ever! Why are you still reading this review? Buy it and see for yourself! You will never look back... Unless you're checking for Necromorphs that is.
