Both reviews are exclusive to the magazines but the overall score and short summary's are really promising. What are your thoughts.?

Official Xbox Magazine (http://www.metacritic.com/publication/official-xbox-magazine?filter=games)

95:woop:

The nuanced tweaks and countless subtle refinements really ratchet up the atmosphere and make Dead Space 2 a richer, more streamlined experience...There's a sure-footed confidence this time around that gives the ghastly proceedings a level of character investment and polish that Dead Space never quite achieved. [Feb 2011, p.29]

90 :woop:

A monster of a sequel, offering bigger scares and more excitement than I expected... The tease for Dead Space 3 has my head spinning with questions. [Feb 2011, p.92]

UPDATE: IGN has given DS2 a 9/10. Here's the written/video review!

Well of course those reviews are good, they are exclusive.

I played the demo and so far it seems like Dead Space nothing more nothing less

Yeah, only a few more days and it's going down with those ugly necromorphs.

From what little I've seen of the interviews and Vidoc's its going to be more like RE survival horror and by that I mean less of the 'oh no I hear noises OMG and monster' and more 'holy crap thats alot of monsters but looky here I have the tool for the job'. Its not a bad thing but I'd love to see more of a Silent Hill 2-3 style survival horror game which hopefully will happen in 2012.

I agree, however classic horror games are done. You won't ever again see something like RE1-3, SH 1-4, simply because the technology advances in gaming. The views/limitations made those horror elements.

I never played the first Dead Space, but that didn't stop me from pre-ordering this game. After playing and thoroughly enjoying the demo, I pre-ordered the game and after beating it, I will most likely go and rent the first one :)

The IGN review was the most promising review, in my eyes. The reviewer said he couldn't wait to start playing again, which is EXACTLY how I felt when I finished the first game.

Tuesday can't come soon enough, and at this rate I may just go ahead and hibernate through the weekend...

I'll be at college from Sunday night to Thursday evening, so I won't get to play until then, assuming it comes in the mail by then. :(

I'll add this to those reviews.. ITS DARK... crank up the brightness and turn off all the lights. I was walking with my light on and still couldn't see squat!!!.

I know it's suppose to be that way, but when you're walking in circles because you cant see a doorway it's ridiculous

Does DS2 have multiplayer this time? Be awesome if you could have one team of necromorphs and another of soldiers.

Did I hear that right in the gametrailers review, there's no pause screen in DS2?

If this is a joke, the very funny. haha.:rolleyes: if u seriously know nothing about this and never took a glance at the front page thread titles with the word "multiplayer" in them AND didnt read my posted above yours, then i can tell u that ur "awesome" idea is true. However, what what the majority of reviews are saying is DS2 multiplayer is nothing to get excited over.

i didn't watch it but in dead space 1 there wasn't really a pause screen either. u could press start to pause the game but if u wanted to go through ur items or look on the map for ur next objective, u would have to do that wat the risk of necros still coming after u. that may be what teh GT review was talking about.

Safe to say, I'm VERY excited to get home and start on this. I've waited a couple years for the sequel and am hoping to start on my way to 1,000 points within a few hours!

If anyone would like, add me on XBL: Younicorn.

I'm still trying to find a way to link my gamercard/tag here...
