"Visceral Games and Electronic Arts have teamed up once again to bring you the sequel to one of the best horror survival Third Person Shooters I’ve ever played. You re-assume the role of Issac Clarke, the engineer who survived the encounter with the Necromorphs.
I would like to make a comment first. I would recommend that if you have not played the first Dead Space game, watch the movie available in the single player menu and then the “Dead Space: Aftermath” movie. If you have played and finished the first Dead Space, I recommend the Aftermath movie minimum. The movie ties the two games together while injecting a new key storyline which is continued through the entire Dead Space game. Watching the movie may help you follow the development of the story the game a little easier."
