    Dead Space 2

    Surprised I haven't seen a thread about this yet. I'm not usually very big into horror games but I was surprised by how much I liked the first Dead Space and lately I've been playing the sequel like mad. Anyone else played it yet?

    Yup, i loved dead space 1. If one pays attention to the environments in dead space 1, they really do some awesome stuff with shape language/repeating common shape themes etc. to set a mood. Dead space 2 i'm about halfway through, it's also a great game just like the last, great art etc, though not as scary. But i think that's just cause im battle hardened from killing necromorphs in dead space 1.

And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."

    Same here ArtZealot. Dead Space seemed to focus more on the action aspects of the horror, I mean sure the monsters are scary and I jumped on more than one occasion but I don't find myself narrowly walking down each corridor and nearly wetting myself

    I was impressed with how much they had improved, new enemies, cooler environments, weapons upgraded, the map system was WAY more efficient, not to mention that zero gravity travel is way more fun, plus they broke a horror game cliche by having a companion that didn't die within 5 minutes of meeting her. Overall a successful sequel, looking forward to the next.

    I was very impressed by Dead Space 2, and I had pretty high expectations for it given how much I enjoyed the first one.
    One of the features I consider a major improvement is the ability to switch between different outfits within the same save file.
    Sometimes I want to fight mutant space zombies looking like retro spaceman, and sometimes I want to look like crazy futuristic armored space warrior from space.

    I despise Pukers with a thousand passions, though.
    My knowledge of scientific biological transmogrifications is only outmatched by my zest for Kung-Fu treachery.

    Designwise I find the sequel to be superb. I loved the changes they made, and the new add ons, such as empty magazine-clip flicking out when reloading, and zerogravity-flight (though, here I wish they combined the new feature with the old jumping style from game 1). What I really enjoyed about the first game was the suit-upgrades, I saved sooo much money just to get and buy the next upgrade, the design was totally rad. In second game I was slightly let down with some of them, and disliked the fact you HAVE to play two or three times to get second upgrades of certain suits. But all in all. Great game, the story really held up this time. Thats my two quick cents of the game I haven´t touched in a while now. Back to school, and drawing.
