1UP: Dead Space 2 Review

1UP: Though, when both the multiplayer and the single-player's biggest flaws are, "they aren't as good as some of the amazing elements in this game," you have a damn fine game (if you have both a PS3 and the Xbox360, a slight nod to the PS3 version if only because you also get Dead Space: Extraction as a free bonus if your copy is among the initial "Limited Edition" allotment, plus just one disc versus the 360's two). But this isn't just a clear, "this game is better than its predecessor," situation. Take away the interface tweaks and improved mechanics behind how Isaac moves and feels, and examine the overall structure, you don't have a "good game and then a better game," you have two different games: a creepy sci-fi horror game with some damn good action versus a damn good sci-fi shooter with some creepy parts.
