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. (Dead Space 2, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

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.

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

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

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

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'
iamironman  +   1486d 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

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.

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

smile.

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.

Idk I was having trouble surviving and I also thought it was pretty scary Lol

I'm sick of these articles that just say this radical BS because it gives them hits. How is Dead Space NOT survival horror? There are frightening parts, there are constant waves of enemies, and you're always low on ammo (one of the biggies to survival horror). STFU AND GTFO
iamironman  +   1486d ago
did u even read the article? they say why THEY THINK it's nt survival horror.

at least its an article that isnt just another preview or review. is saying dead space is not survival horror really 'radical'? you must be very easily shcked.
jneul  +   1486d ago
weird because i found ds2 scary, i was always low on health and ammo at the end of the game, i had to sell some of my weapons just to get enough of the ammo and health i needed to do the final part lol
i have played 3 games this year(lbp2, kz3), so far i have to say dead space 2 is my favourite

easily shocked? F!CK YOU! Have you seen Antichrist?! NOPE!

and yes Dead Space is NOT scary not by my standards AT ALL. I do NOT get scared anymore, not after being held at gunpoint. but I like to think it does because SO many games claiming to be scary are not! It's good to see a game that gives you "jumping moments"
the-thing-that-is  +   1485d ago
gun point..... wow. the people that cum here r ***
Venox2008  +   1485d ago
