Dead Space 2 Review

By Corey Stoneburner |

Dead Space 2 is an amazing game. I'm going to write about its scary moments, cool kills, and how much I dig the main character's internal struggle, but Dead Space 2 is about more than this. When I beat it for the first time, I sat on the couch with my heart racing and dissected the journey I had just taken. Then, I started my second playthrough, and when that was done, I jumped into a new game for the third time. Dead Space 2 is just that good.

It's been three years since the events of the first game, but protagonist Isaac Clarke still can't catch a break. At the beginning of Dead Space 2, he wakes on a space station known as the Sprawl and finds the place is overwhelmed by an outbreak of reanimated corpses called Necromorphs. From the very first moment of the game, Isaac's fighting for his life.

Take aim with our video review.
This is where you come in. As Isaac, you'll pick up your plasma cutter, don an engineering suit and take the fight to the beasts out to kill you. The overarching goal is to find and destroy the religious idol (known as the Marker) causing all of this, but the story that makes Dead Space 2 great is the internal war Isaac's fighting. Unlike Uncharted's Nathan Drake who can kill a few hundred pirates and never seem worn down by it, Isaac is totally ruined by the events of the original Dead Space. He saw things no man should have to during his time on the spaceship USG Ishimura, but it's the fact that Isaac's girlfriend died on the vessel after he encouraged her to work there that really haunts him.

Isaac's losing his mind in Dead Space 2. The guilt is tearing his very sanity apart. That's heavy stuff and it makes for a really engaging story. Isaac doesn't let anyone else in on the fact that he's coming unglued, so as a player I get to see who he really is and the facade he presents to the other characters. Isaac's internal conversations and hallucinations are among my favorite parts of this game.

But I have lots of favorite parts to Dead Space 2. Right behind Isaac's struggle on my list of cool stuff is the combat. It's more satisfying than it was in the original. Isaac's fast and light on his feet. You can stomp crates in a jiff and melee attack bodies for loot, grabbing things with your telekinesis is responsive, and mixing all of this together with the different weapons in the game is a blast. Slowing down a Necromorph, blowing off its arm, and using the severed limb to impale the foe on a wall is a thing of beauty that doesn't get old.

The cast is fleshed out, but Isaac steals the show.Dead Space 2 is pretty much the best haunted house attraction ever. Visceral stripped out the stuff that slowed down the original game (backtracking, getting disoriented, etc.) and ended up with a fast-paced game that's suspenseful and scary at the same time. You're funneled down these halls and corridors on your way from Point A to Point B, and ghouls pop out for you to blast. I know that "linear" is a bad word in the video game industry, but the package is so well done here that I can't knock Dead Space 2 for taking me on a very specific ride that's marked by awesome moments, environments that range from a cheery schoolhouse to pitch black rooms, and sound that's so well done I'd find myself trying to figure out if it was a monster making its move or my dog rummaging in the living room. Toss in some new disturbing enemies and surprises I won't ruin for you and you have a game that can feel like "the same old thing" at times but becomes much more than that as a whole.

I've already said that I've played the game over and over, so it's important to point out that no ride needs to be the same. Dead Space packs returning weapons such as the saw blade-spitting Ripper as well as brand new items like the Detonator and its trip mines. Each of these weapons -- along with your suit, telekinesis and stasis module -- can be upgraded for maximum ass-kicking, and then the progress can be saved and carried over to your next playthrough. These options and rewards are what kept me wanting to come back. There are tons of new suits (with new bonuses) to unlock and I always wanted to see what my next pimped-out weapon could do.



Dead Space 2 Cheats

In Chapter 15, the final room contains a bench/store and save point. Backtrack down the corridor. There is a room that you must open with a Power Node, it contains 2 Power Nodes, a Ruby Semiconductor and some random items. Collect them and return to the save point. Save your game and reload it. Return to the locked Node room again and the items will have returned! You can repeat this process indefinitely.

You can also do this at the Node-locked rooms in Chapter 6, Chapter 7 and Chapter 14.

Perform the following actions to unlock additional modes.

  • Hardcore Difficulty (corresponds to the old Insane difficulty setting) - Clear the campaign on any difficulty to unlock hardcore difficulty. This setting is equivalent to Zealot difficulty, but only allows you to restart from the last save game. To frustrate matters, hardcore difficulty only allows you three saves (for the whole campaign) and cannot be started from a New Game (+) -- you must start fresh from a New Game. Good luck!
  • New Game + (visible on the menu, but cannot be selected) - Clear the game on any difficulty and you may saved the cleared game data for New Game (+). From there, all of your weapons and items in the store and your inventory are carried over from your previous game. Makes completing Zealot and Hard difficulties much easier!

You can use the shop and the work bench to get easy health boosts. Each time you don a suit for the first time -- after buying it in the shop -- your health is filled to maximum. This only works the first time you put on each suit, but with the extra downloadable suits you can do this several times throughout the game.

Alternately, once you can purchase the Respec ability (5000 Credits), you can strip the Power Nodes from the Rig and replace them for full health -- this costs less than, say, buying a large health pack.
