I like Dead Space 2 so much, I think we should declare today a nation holiday in honor of its release. Our reviewer, Bryan Stratton, might not be quite as exuberant as I am, but he liked the game quite a bit. Here's a piece of his review:
"Just over two years ago, EA unleashed the original Dead Space, a sci-fi survival horror story that earned rave reviews and used a rabid fanbase to incubate a multimedia infestation. With that kind of success, it was inevitable that protagonist Isaac Clarke would be forced to relive the terror of the Necromorphs: grotesque, reanimated human corpses with an unquenchable thirst for blood. Fortunately for fans—and unfortunately for Isaac—Dead Space 2 is everything that its predecessor was, and more."
