While we can't say that becoming an actual Necromorph would do much to enhance our social lives, the notion of being able to jump into the putrid flesh of a ravenous mutant for a few rounds of deathmatch certainly sounds like an excellent idea. With that in mind, we've taken a look at the new multiplayer modes in Dead Space 2.
"In Dead Space 2’s multiplayer, you will have four space miners like Isaac (though you can make them all look a bit different with custom armors and gear) fighting against relentless waves of player-controlled Necromorphs as the miners work to complete a series of objectives. It’s sort of like playing a co-op level with three of your friends while four of your other friends do whatever they can to mess it up."
