Unsurprised at the number of references to your Dead Space 1 review, since from what I've heard Dead Space 2 is really quite similar.

Chocolate covered lesbians yayyy!

But yeah, I liked the first game for what it was, and that's not a horror game. At most it's a "tension" game because when you're swarmed by creepy monsters and can only stop them by chopping limbs, it gets pretty tense. I rented the first and I'll probably rent this one too. Not really a "must buy" IMO.

Anyway decent review, if not one of the funnier ones.

Ach, I hate those vents. Mostly because after a certain point in the game you can tell when a monster is going to pop out at you and where it will, yet you can't use your knowledge of the situation to kill it before it gets the drop on you. So, you're forced to willing go into their stupid trap.

A mighty fine review..

And I must say I agree. I still got to go drink some water after each finger cutting session of Hard Rain.. Great voice acting in that one.

Also; I giggled at the monster face-pulling. <3

Oh mighty Mod God, smite thee.

EDIT:
Anywho...

It always makes laugh when people tell me how "scary" and "atmospheric" Dead Space is. Really, its about as scary and atmospheric as Saw or Hostel. Its not so much survival/horror as it is more of an interactive gore porno.

Oooh, ah fresh review, now this doesnt happen very often. I for one liked Dead space 2, even though it werent scary... at all, but I guess the player just get used to the horror and learns to live with it

The only scene that really freaked me out where the scene where you had to stick a needle in your eye. Oh god I hate needles, and I hate sticking things into eyes

Dead Space 2!? o: I had no idea he was going to review this! If only there'd been some form of hint, I could have prepared for this!

Are there any spoilers in this? Because I want to play it, but not have a spoiler come flying to my face.

I'm impressed with your knowledge of physiology, not just "dead space" but on dismemberment.

"Everyone is as attached to their own limbs as that climber guy who cut his arm off."

Congratulation, you got a full laugh out of me.

Nah. I saw half of the gameplay on Youtube (and the ending as well) and from what Yahtzee said, he didn't spoil anything too serious.

I leave...somewhat disappointed from that review. Maybe it's the fact that his rage was tempered by the game being a horror game in space with jet packs, but I honestly expected him to tear further into this.

I will agree that it doesn't really scare you, just makes you jump every so often or go, 'WHERE'D THAT COME FROM?!' If anythng, the one scene that did make me sweat a lot is...
