Visceral Games Dead Space was one of the surprise hits of 2008. It combined great horror shooter gameplay with fantastic atmosphere, sound and the game was praised for its minimalistic interface.
We played through the demo of Dead Space 2 and were quite impressed. The core of the game seems the same, Visceral seem to have gone a "If it ain't broke, dont fix it" approach on the game and have polished the parts of the game that worked particularly well in the original.
The stellar and spooky atmosphere of the first game is maintained and the game still has its great UI which helps immerse you in the game.
