IGN writes: "At least part of Dead Space 2 takes place on The Sprawl, a city located on a moon off Saturn. Despite the seemingly gloomy ending of the original Dead Space, the sequel puts you once again in the high-tech suit of engineer and up-and-coming badass Isaac Clarke. It's unclear what Isaac is doing in the Sprawl, but things in the city have gone to hell and there are necromorphs everywhere. Worse news for Isaac: developer Visceral Games is upping the gruesome kills. Not just for how you dismember necromorphs, but in how they dismember Isaac".
