Dead Space II
For those who are not familiar with the first part of this sequel it should be mentioned that Dead Space 2 is a third-person shooter, with its hero, Isaac Clarke, having bad days being haunted by zombie-like creatures (called Necromorphs) aboard the planet-cracking enormous spacecraft. Here the player in Isaak’s boots has to sever the limbs of these terrible aliens in order to stop their attack.
The Dead Space series regard themselves as belonging to survival-horror, though in its essence the game is rather action-oriented. The player is provided with an arsenal of weapons built with the intention to be used against aliens: they give the player very nearly surgical precision in aiming to destroy these enemies.
The endless chain of fantastic am-I-crazy-visions and jump-out-and-grab moments and never-ending stream of bad guys that are leaping, crawling, and shooting, make the player experience a range of most thrilling reactions, such as jumping at the surprise tactics employed in the game or quickened pulse during the most stressful sections. These reactions only contribute to the player’s still deeper immersion into the game. There are quite numerous terrific and scary moments for the bravest players to be found in the hallways of Dead Space 2.
All the events in Dead Space 2 are taking place in a giant city on a distant star three years after the events of the first part of the sequel.
Together with the slight changes in the plot the game’s graphics also has undergone certain changes: for the sections in the original game that had dirty browns and greens for air, the sequel provides a more agreeable bluish hue. And the graphics in general – though based on the same gameplay elements and engine - are definitely smoother and provide such details as the Necromorphs’ explode, vomit, and lost limbs most exquisitely. The characters are also presented with considerable detail, particularly Isaac's face with his eyes looking antastic.
The sequel’s audio is likewise terrific with all the footsteps, puking ,screams, and actions from all the characters in the game being spotted-on – all of that with subtle music as its background. All these features together make the game’s sound effects a domain where the game really shines, and all the presented aspects together make Dead Space 2 extremely enjoyable.
