Summary: Now this is a sequel! It takes all of the established mechanics and lore from the first game and expands on them. You return as Isaac Clarke (named after Isaac Asimov and Arthur C. Clarke) and the battles that he's fought, and the loses he's sustained are weighing heavily on him. Unfortunately, he's thrust back into that same fight, all over again. As I mentioned before, the mechanics from the first one are back and better than ever.
Summary: The Good: Excellent story telling, atmosphere, and riveting beginning and ending chapters, new Necromorphs are great additions, the multiplayer is surprisingly fun The Bad: Too much is the same, only one new weapon, the middle chapters are repetitive, the multiplayer is short lived Ever since the entertainment industry was born man has always loved to be scared. Despite our curiosity for death we loath it every day yet we surround ourselves with it in an ironic twist.
Excellent game but not so great Collector's Edition

Summary: The game in itself is great. Good story, great ambiance and great gameplay. However, I do not think the collector's edition is worth the extra money. The gun is not done to scale and is quite small and difficult to put in your hand. It is very cheaply built. Dead Space Extraction is not particularly fun or exciting. Dead Space 2 is a great game so you're better off buying the standard edition.
Summary: Im a big dead space fan and was very satisfied with this sequel.the game is great. scary. very scary. play with lights off. being the fan i am, i was super excited about the collectors edition. everything was kind of by the book as far as that goes. came with a suit and force gun for isaac as dlc, a lithograph of a necromorph, an actual cd soundtrack,which i prefer over a downloadable version, but the real draw was the replica plasma cutter!!!!
Summary: Ok, I know it's late writing this review, but maybe someone didn't have the money and was considering getting the Collectors Edition. Well, don't bother. Only thing of worth is the game. You get a CD a Replica plasma cutter and a concept art lithograph with a downloadable gun and suit. They could have went the extra way and made a lifelike size Replica plasma. That would have been awesome. I wouldn't mind paying extra for something like that.
Summary: Game amazing, very very GOOD! 09/10 I really enjoyed the game, it's very scary. Playing in the dark, a very scary, excellent graphics, excellent sound, I recommend to everyone here at Amazon, buy!
