obviously not as much as 'The Cradle level' from Thief : DS, Amnesia or Silent Hill

and DS2 doesnt have the barren living breathing ship in the Ishimura

but its still does its best with what it has and regardless its an amazing game

Something I've noticed about Dead Space 2 compared to DS1. Its far less claustrophobic being removed from the narrow corridors of a deep space vessel, in general it doesn't seem to be as dark, being in a populated urban center with people dying around you takes away the sense of isolation, and most everything so far feels 'cleaner' and less 'grimy'. I'm about 3 hours into the game and feel far less tense and have been freaked out way less times whereas same time investment into DS1 I was constantly tense and freaked out about a dozen and a half times.
