M2G Writes: The UK and versions of the Official Xbox Magazine, along with the Official PlayStation Magazine have all revealed their respective review scores for Dead Space 2, and its looking pretty good for Visceral’s horror/shooter.
its almost here... i want it so baaaaaaaaddd
Ive already bought 12 pairs of pants, one for each chapter I shit my pants in!
That's what she said.
Dead Space 2 is a good game in the thrilling genre, but horror, NO it isnt
Thrilling?Thrillers have suspunse and fear through murders and shit.This game extra terestial alienoid things hunting you.Who's that not horror?
It's much closer to horror than thriller. Well it's actually sci-fi horror, but who cares because it's still going to be awesome no matter what genre you wish to call it.
Its got blood and guts, limbs flying everywhere, decapitation etc. how the hell is that not horror!?
Disturbing imagery, excessive gore, body horror... I'd say it qualifies for the genre.
This game will be worth the wait.
Just a couple more weeks to go now, but I'd prefer it to come out tomorrow :(
My fav IP this gen but I don't think it needs MP but who knows it may pay off like UC2 but it is risky business with adding on MP.
heavy rain is thriller, while this is horror to the max, but it's not the scare your looking for if you have played silent hill. Dead space is more like doom 3, where you jump alot, even if you know that a nechromorph is pretending to be dead.
Jumps =/= horror Jumps are mostly due to audio (which is excellent in DeadSpace) rather than something visual. The pang of sound as the necromorph springs up from the ground is more startling than the actual monster itself. Doom3 wasn't much of a horror game either. Though, it depends on the person. Some will find it horrifying, some won't. I just don't feel scared when I have effective ways of self-defense (that, and I suppose staring at dead bodies all day has made me insensitive to blood&gore)
staring at dead bodies all day? is that your job?
The first game was one of the best games i've ever played. This game could very well be my GOTY. Oh wait, it's multiplat. Am i allowed to have a multiplat game as my GOTY??
Enjoyed the demo. I own the first game but never got a chance to sit down and play through it.
