Joe Tkacz Writes: Dead Space 2 is about as scary as a videogame can get. It isn’t frightening in the, say, Silent Hill ghost town sense. Instead, think slasher-film scary, like Friday the 13th on steroids. Think Resident Evil hopped up on adrenaline. Or better yet, Mortal Kombat without the comedic values. From its pulse-pounding beginning to its white knuckled conclusion, Dead Space 2 demands your attention, and has no qualms about punishing those who don’t concede to its horrific carnival of evil. While Visceral Game’s predecessor may have stained a few drawers of its own, its successor doesn’t even give you a chance to change them.
