My computer have gone dark unfortunately, so that’s why I haven’t been able to publish more after the last rewiev. I’m now waiting for the new one and hope that it will arrive soon.
I have some new videos and other news waiting to be published, so I hope you will continue to check in.
Let me just say that this game are way more freaky than Bioshock… and to be honest, that’s what i like. A realy freaky game that give me the scary/jumpy feeling while I play those games. Well… at least for me, as it’s my first time playing Dead Space at all. But it seem like Visceral Games and EA have thought about the players that haven’t played the first Dead Space and made a “intro video/update” for the newbies, so catching up in the story is quite easy. The story is the same as the first one, as the Marker you destroyed in Dead Space are now been rebuilt and everything happens all over again. But you are not ther as a engineer, no… you are there as an experiment after your encounter with the first Marker.
And let me just say that the intence action starts imediately, but this time you’re in a straight jacket and can only run while the necromorphs are hunting you down… and the intence feeling will stay for a long time as you progress further, even after you get a flashlight or the weapons will you still feel the freaky intensity that will follow you through the game…
To get new weapons in the store do you need to find schematics for those weapons/armors. You will also come across something called “nodes” (for those of you who haven’t played Dead Space before), with those are you ment to use with a bench to upgrade your armor and weapons (something that is crutial for your progress in the game).
So when you complete the game do you also unlock something called “Neg Game +”, this is a game mode where youcan play the story all over again but you will have all the upgrades/weapons and armors from your finished game at the first store. Some new armors will also be available if you can find the schematics, but teh police uniform (a pretty neat armor) will be in the first store with all your grear from the last game. Just remember to save after you have finished the game or this feature will not be added, but you will be notified with this after completion of the game.
There are only 2 things that I surely do missed in Dead Space 2… First there are the splashing from the necromophs when you stomp/smash them, as it’s splashing so much why is there no blood splashing on the screen? I mean, it get’s pretty messy when you do it so this would be a great detail for a next Dead Space. Second, there should have been an achievement called “The Irony of Med Packs”, and the trick is that you have to kill one of the mosters with a medpack… hehe that would be sweet…
Anyway withouth these features are this game one of the best games I have played on Xbox.
The online part are well kind of interesting as Visceral Games decided to use the two sides necromorphs and humans against each other for us players. This gives you an oppurtunity to get to know the monsters as well better and how they can attack you in the singleplayer. In the multiplayer can there be 4 – 8 players and there are 5 maps where each have their own game mode. So explore, be cruel, have fun and ripp those limbs of your enemies…
