I may give it a go...I can always return it if I don't like it anyway.
Yeah, you know, I hated the game when I first played the demo, but I found it for $10, so I was like "Hey, that's a good deal, why not?" and it turned out to be one of my favorite games.
Yeah, Dead Space felt very formulaic. I'm such a huge fan of monsters, atmosphere, and survivor horror so i loved it anyways.
Dead Space 2 is SO much better in pacing so far, the animations are amazing too. Everything so far has outdone what i have seen in the first. The environments are incredible i think, in concept and design.
Completely agree. It kind of reminds me of Bioshock in some ways. I never got into Bioshock, but it had some cool elements to it. Anyway, I totally agree about the environments especially.
I've died several times already, I'm playing it on survivor. I honestly died in the first 2 seconds, hahaha. I was like, wow. fail. I'm currently on chapter 3.
I haven't died a ton (probably because I've played through the first game about 7 times, and I'm pretty practiced up, but I have died a decent amount. I'm also playing on Survivor). I'm currently just starting Chapter 8.

Have you tried multiplayer yet?
