I ain’t afraid of no Necromorphs! That’s right, Isaac Clarke returns for another spine-tingling space opera in Dead Space 2, featuring all kinds of sick and twisted mutant action and plenty of tactical shooting play to boot. You’ll have the opportunity to see Isaac’s face for the first time too, and hear his voice as he strategically zaps limbs off of intergalactic monsters.

The premise? Isaac's on top of The Sprawl, the space-bound city where Dead Space 2 is set, and he's got to fix some solar arrays. The vastness of space is beyond, twinkling at you. The Sprawl is sat below looking industrial and stark. It's the sort of place British novelists like Orwell or J.G. Ballard would warn you about. The word that comes to mind is 'Epic'.

And as you explore this monstrous vessel, you’ll find that many of the elements you remember from the original Dead Space have been tweaked. Brand new tools are available that allow you to mince your enemies in even more imaginative ways, while an ever-increasing puzzle adventure element will keep you on your toes as you seek to nullify a huge Necromorph onslaught. There are also zero-G environments to mix up the action a fair amount.

This goes beyond survival horror - Isaac’s calling the shots, and this time he means business.
