This is basicly my review of Dead Space 2 which I already did in Finnish, but I will translate it to English and maybe write some more about it.
So, I've been playing Dead Space 2 for a while now. It sure can be still called a horror-game but in my opinion the first game was more scary. The seemed to have recycled some of the ideas they used to create horror in the first game. That ain't a problem though, as long as the game is scary.
The scenery is way different from the first game, as you will be moving in a space city called 'Sprawl' instead of the planetcracker USG Ishimura.
Also they have renewed the protagonist, Isaac Clarke. In the first game, Isaac didn't talk at all. He was just a silent character like Gordon Freeman in Half Life 2. Now Isaac takes his helmet off more often and he actually talks which gives him a personality.
I have played the multiplayer only for a few matches but I can say it's a good one. I preferred playing as the Survivors and didn't have enough time to test the Necromorphs out yet. The multiplayer is a lot like Left 4 Dead, as you are trying to escape from Necromorphs, while you must do objectives in order to proceed.
In all, the game is great sequel to a great horror-game. I can easily recommend this game to anyone who has played the original Dead Space and to people who like horror-games.
I also recommend to check out the animated movies which shed some light on the backstory of Dead Space. The movies are called Dead Space: Aftermath and Dead Space: Downfall.
