Dead Space 2 (Xbox 360, PS3 and PC): First Look Preview

By Jamie Pert - May 13, 2010

Dead Space 2 has been doing the rounds recently, and with every bit of new information, it seems that players and gamers who enjoyed the first, are eager to see what the next game will hold in store for them.

Gamers who have seen the Dead Space 2 demo will definitely have got a taste of what to expect from the newest installment. That being said, do you believe it is living up to the hype?

You once again play the part of Isaac Clarke, who this time has awakened from a coma in a mass cityscape called “The Sprawl”. The events from the first game have left Isaac scarred with dementia, and is haunted by visions of his former girlfriend. But that’s not all, he is also been hunted and plagued by the government and Necromorphs.

Dead Space 2 (which will hopefully be arriving this December) will give players new ways to tear off the limbs of his necro-enemies, there will also be a vast array of new creatures and villains. New dynamic environments are also been shown, that pathe the way to show you how you can manipulate the environment to progress throughout the game.

Other new features and weapons such as the Javelin Gun are also implemented, which could see the player shoot a spike into an enemy, impaling them against the wall before reaching for an electricity device which can be used to barbecue them.

One more interesting point from the demo, showed Isaac surrounded by enemies. Low on ammo, his only option was to brake a decompression window which saw all his enemies flung out into the nothingness of space before quickly activating an emergency close button to save him from the same fate.

Dead Space 2 is most definitely shaping up to be a very interesting game, and with E3 coming up, more information should be revealed. You never know, even the PlayStation Move could have some part in the game. Only time will tell.
