Dead Space 2 Is Pretty Sweet...

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Had been looking for new game to get into and came across this one. Viewed some trailers and had a deal on it so said what the hey I'll try it out. This is so much more than I hoped for. The visuals are great IMO, the gameplay is sweet, the idea of the game is intriguing....anyways, anyone else finding this game as fun as I am? Anyone dislike it? Lets discuss.

However, the only thing I don't like is the 3rd person view. Hate looking over the shoulder.

It is actually (this is coming from a gamer since 1988-9), one of the best games i have ever played.
The atmosphere just draws you in, its gory, but not to the extent that its truly disgusting, it just emits fear.
The
Best
game
ever.

I just bought it and am about to play it, don't care for Steam deals or whatever... many people say it's good! I mean how can it be bad? The only game that will scare you with the volume up and lights off Played Dead Space and it was nice (Except that the ending was HORRIBLE)

I just recently got the game as well. I'm enjoying the game yet the game is making me jump out of my chair a little too much . I've never been a fan of Single Player games, nor Survival Horror games, so this is a first for me haha.

It's one of those games that executes everything nearly perfectly. The audio and visuals (they had an entire team dedicated to lighting), the physics for Stasis/Kinesis, the A.I., all implemented extremely well. I kept seeing people complain about the controls, but I had no issues; most of 'em are focused on the mouse, and a handful of items are on the keyboard in easily-accessible spots.

If you haven't already, disable the in-game Vsync and enable it in your driver control panel; it's an issue that was present in the first game as well, but survived to the second.

I'm a Dead Space fan boi.

Yeah I bought Dead Space 2 the day it came out. I can't fault the game, it's absolute gaming perfection.

Looks gorgeous and runs at 9001 FPS no problems.

Best game ever
post #10 of 15
Is Dead Space 3 a guarantee?

I think so because:

- Dead Space 2 crushed Dead Space 1's sales.
- Not everything in the story explained.
- We have yet to encounter the ORIGINAL alien marker in a game.
- It's awesome and unique. People want something new.
- ????
- Profit.
