GamingBolt: "Dead Space 2 is one of those games that have literally made me jump off my seat and turn the television set off since I was not able to take it anymore. That is the level of scares and chills one can expect in the sequel to the 2008 classic, Dead Space. Issac Clarke is back after his horrendous adventures on the Ishimura and finds himself in a hospital aboard a space ship called the Sprawl, suffering from Dementia, a mental illness caused by the Marker. Throughout the game Isaac is haunted by some strange visions about some terrifying memories of his girlfriend from the first game, and a Necromorph whose resemblance to her is uncanny. This results in an engaging plot with Issac not only fighting against the Necromorphs, but also his past and a government agency who wishes to control the Marker."
