IGN has reviewed the upcoming survival horror Dead Space 2 and gave it a 9/10 overall. It reports that combat its more “satisfying” than it was in the original game, and that a vast number of rewards and unlocks attract repeat plays. Both factors, says IGN, help make it the “best haunted house attraction ever”.
“Dead Space 2 is more than just an action game and it’s more than a survival horror game — it’s a game that tells a really personal story about a guy who has been seriously scarred by the events around him. That premise alone makes it interesting, but Visceral Games melds it with rewarding combat, shocking enemies, and huge set pieces before tossing it into a world that’s truly creepy and scary.”
