Dead Space 2 isn’t bad, it simply isn’t the evolution it should or could have been. By the time the closing credits roll, don’t be surprised if the only dead space you’re feeling is the one in the middle of your chest.
This translates to a 58/100 on metacritic. I'm not even kidding, it just posted on the PS3 side. Over 30 points BELOW the critical average and 22 to the next closest score. :( Scott Jones has a reputation on Reviews on the Run, a review show in Canada on G4, as being a crusty curmudgeon even stating he only uses his PS3 to watch BluRays, but a 58 on metacritic is something else. In comparison he gave Dead Rising 2 a 10/10. I thought Dead Space 2 was great.
Nothing new here..we all know Scott Jones is just another bias person..He can go to hell for all i care
I'm not sure he played the same game i did? The game is bad ass.
wow, how could any reviewer give this game a C+? its a 9/10 game all day long
Who said he was a reviewer, for all I know he could be a chimp typing up shit and smoking a cigar
i agree. it's a true sequel. so many things were improved upon. i think the boosters in zero-g is my fav new feature though. i'm always amazed when i click L3 and he pops up with the boosters. it's so cool =D
Because its his opinion.
The real question is...how this piece of crap of opinion got approved?! :1
aroooouuu?? (c) Scooby Doo
Isn't that Richard Nixon in Futurama?
You never know what score you're gonna get with A.V Club.
A C+ ???? Really ? Who is this clown and why does he still have a job ? Easily one of the best gaming experiences I've had in the last twelve months. In Dead Space, they reinvented survival horror and in Dead Space 2 they perfected it !
dead space 2 the most overrated game this year. it's a lot worse than the first part and still getting all these 9/10 reviews.
It's only January, but I get the feeling your going for the attention seeking tabloid style headline. Might aswell say - "Dead Space 2 the most overrated game this"... MONTH, although it doesn't quite pack the same punch, does it? Personally, I am enjoying this game every bit as much as the original, if not more, which is what I wanted from the game. Plus Extraction with the Move is an excellent extra aswell as the surprisingly entertaining multiplayer. The game deserves somewhere between an 8 and 9 out of 10, IMO.
It's not overrated, you may not like it but it's not overrated. Plenty of people, including myself, think it's awesome. You and the reviewer are in the minority.
LOLOLOLOLOLOL I don't even think it's gonna affect the 90 score on Metacritic
Not enough of an evolution? It's an action-shooter/survival-horror hybrid. What does he want? Perhaps instead of saying something stupid with no basis for such, he could say something stupid and at least provide solid reasons as to why, specifically noting HOW things could be improved or comparing it to games that do it better. You can't just say "Yeah, it's a great game and all, it's just that it's not meeting my presumptuous and ill-defined standards. 5/10. ARE PEOPLE PAYING ATTENTION TO ME YET?!"
and the first part was okay 8 this maybe 7.5
The part on the tram in the beginning where you're dangling made me realize how awesome this game is. You can't please everyone. It's alright.
@DenyTheFacts It already did. The 58 on meta' dropped it to 89. That ain't right. Game's stellar. *looks at who reviewed it* Yeah now it makes sense. ROTR is [email protected] They should get Tommy Tallarico back.
Is this game better than the first ? Edit: awesome, ill pick it up then
Very much so, and the first was awesome.
LIES and blasphemy dead space is nothing but AMAZING
crappy review is crap.
Amazing game...absolutely ignorant reviewer being printed here.....9/10 all day long.
A C+? Really? From graphics, to sound design, this game deserves no less than a B+/A-
