IncGamers: Dead Space 2 Is Not Survival Horror

IncGamers writes: Let me preface this by saying that I like Dead Space 2. It’s a game that ticks most of the boxes; it’s fun, it looks great, it sports a number of good ideas, it takes place in an interesting world and the story does a good enough job of keeping you interested through to the end. The box that it doesn’t tick however is the scary box.

it might not be "survival horror" in the same way as resi evil or silent hill but i prefer it how it is. i like shooting sutff.

the-thing-that-is1970d ago

I think it's quite scary. i dont like 3rd person that much but this is a pretty sweet game

Corepred41970d ago

Well I just got done scaring myself last night. Playing alone in the dark with surround sound. I loved it.

anasurimbor1969d ago

And people like you would be the reason survival horror is mostly dead.

Blad3star1969d ago

WTF is wrong with this generation of kids? All they want to do is shoot stuff up.

COD syndrome.

Play it on hardcore and we'll see how long you 'survive'

iamironman1970d ago

tried playing on hardcore. it was too difficult. gave up. didnt enjoy it. i dont play games for that kind of challenge. i play them to be entertained. on that difficulty setting it just felt like work rather than fun

BubbleSniper1970d ago (Edited 1970d ago )

dyin 8 times in the begin is comedy and win to me IMO

Me too.
I hated having to watch the intro twice cause I had to restart. Blasted thing is like 5 minutes long. I did end of ch 5, ch 9, and two saves before the eye poke. After the initial two deaths I didn't die much, mostly right after the saves so it didn't really matter time wise. Very intense.

Didn't they same this SAME EXACT THING about DS1? Seriously, we get it, you don't friggin' like that it's not the original Resident Evils or Silent Hills, but Survival Horror has changed. Get over it.

DS2 is extremely scary. Thats not really the issue. Right now im about to finish the game (on chapter 15)... I cannot believe they introduced an enemy you cannot kill. Wtf? The problem for me is that i was trying to use unconventional weapons to beat the game (detonator mines / javelin gun/ regular rifle / line gun). I have so much ammo for detonator gun and now i find out i have to run through the levels? That means i cant use this weapon! Is this a smart design choice?

I am irritated but at least this game scares the shit out of me (im playing on survivalist).

EDIT : You can only kill the thing with a glitch. Its a 1 time occurence, and only if you follow specific directions. There is no normal way to kill this fucker i tried looking already.

BubbleSniper1970d ago

you can kill that guy. i have not tried yet but you can find way to do it. answer is a GOOGLE away.

smile.

flyingmunky1970d ago

The re-generator is also in the first game. Its pretty intense to keep that guy down while the rest of the horde is coming at you.

As for your weapon situation, sell off the extra junk ammo and try a different weapon, you can just respec the nodes at a work bench. Force gun is good at the end I found, its a good run and gunner. May want the contact beam for the final battle too, makes it cake.
