Dead Space 2 delivers more than just an engrossing sci-fi action game with improvements on the original Dead Space. It delivers an interactive narrative that truly taps into the player’s emotions. From the onset of the game and through the conclusion, Dead Space 2 is a pulse-pounding experience in terror. Players will always be on guard, yet still be broken. The necromorphs may be scary and gory, but the newfound level of terror bred by Visceral Games creates a claustrophobic terror unparalleled in gaming. The lighting is spectacular and amplified by the jolting audio. Isaac Clarke is better personified through his voice, but it his eyes that are even more expressive of his dementia. Dead Space 2 isn’t survival horror. It’s survival terror. Visceral Games has mastered the art of fear and set a new standard in gaming.
