Critical Reception

Dead Space 2 boasts an impressive score of 90 on MetaCritic. The users have been only slightly less kind, giving it a high aggregate rating of 8.6. The PC version of the game is slightly lower-rated, as it often is with console ports.

The story of Isaac Clarke doesn't stop here. The next game, Dead Space 3, takes Isaac to Tau Volantis, a frozen, snowy planet, and an interesting change from the spaceship environments usually prominent in the series.

      I like seeing games released for all major platforms at the same time. It must be lots of work, but it is great for the gamers.

      Well, the demo was pretty sweet. I just wish there were options for customizing the buttons n other stuff. Hopefully they will make it in the release.
