It depends on how badly you want to enlarge the experience. I knew I was close to an end when I realized there were only two achievements left, so I did it that way. And after going through both runs, I still recommend it to everyone who really likes the game and has the time.
As much as I loved the game, I was completely ready to move on. Two playthroughs was definitely enough. I heard in Dead Space 2 the hardest difficulty only allows 3 checkpoints. I'm not looking forward to it at all!
