I enjoyed reading this review, Suskie. It was very direct and in-your-face about all the points you wanted to make, and then just ended when all points were made. Good stuff.

Thanks a lot! This review is unusually short by my standards so I'm glad it worked out.

That opening line is pure gold.

That review excerpt was pure gold. Haha. I laughed my ass off at that description. Truth be told, I may not have read the review otherwise. I'm glad I did, though. Nice work.

On a somewhat less flattering note, was this intentional?

but Dead Space 2 beats you over the over the face so relentlessly

Um, no it was not. Thanks for the catch (and for reading).

"Maybe I’m the only person in the world who would call the first Dead Space a subtle game. "

No. :D Good review. It's strange how different reviewers put weight on different things. Maybe it was easy to say: it's not like Dead Space, but on the other hand now the controls are more arcade smooth, and the zero g segments feel more realistic. And then leave that alone. But like you seem to say - those are small extra things.

I got Dead Space 2 ages ago, but have yet to build up the desire to play it. You're not helping.


For us. For them. For you.

Sweet review, Mike. I agree with the others: the opening paragraph was money.

This line is one of the best I've read in some time:

Dead Space 2 tries to scare us by being loud, but it is never quiet for long enough to scare us by being loud.

I don't like giving suggestions, but the only one I have is to scrap the "if you will" part in parentheses, because we certainly WILL; the comparison is apt.

Thanks for the kind words and the (good) advice. And don't ever hesitate to offer me suggestions; they're much appreciated.
