If you’re looking for Dead Space 2 to deliver the same combo of scares and action, you won’t be disappointed. On those accounts it’s a worthy successor to the original. Even so, the premise started feeling a little thin after only a couple of hours into the game. That’s largely to do with the story being conveyed though the somewhat clumsy in-game mixed media logs, much like the original. I can only hope that future installments deliver a richer story experience, which could elevate Dead Space beyond visceral scares and gore.
