Trivia

There is a 1991 movie called Dead Space. It's description is "a deadly virus is taking over a space station revolving around Saturn". It stars Bryan Cranston. Dead space 2 takes place in a space station orbiting Saturn. This could be an obvious reference to the movie. See more »

Goofs

In the final Chapter, after the Marker has been destroyed and Ellie comes on the video communications, her left eye now has a patch over it. It was her right eye that she lost and in the previous video communications it was on her right eye. See more »

Quotes

Nicole Brennan: [Chapter 13 - in a hallucination inside Isaac's mind] *Yours* is the last body we need to be reborn! The makers must be absorbed!
Isaac Clarke: "The makers"? You mean me? But Stross said we could destroy the Marker!
Nicole Brennan: [appears as a shadow in front of him] Not if we consume you first!
Isaac Clarke: [infuriated that he'd been betrayed] Goddammit, I *trusted* you! *Fuck* you, and *fuck your Marker!*

Not just a worthy sequel, but a new sci-fi epic
3 April 2011 | by slayerjmk95See all my reviews

The first Dead Space reinvented not just the horror genre, but the sci-fi genre at the same time. Dead Space in itself is one of the greatest sci-fi stories of all time, and Dead Space 2 lives up to that, and more. Dead Space 2 drops you off not after the Necromorph outbreak, but right as it's happening, and this time on a space station instead of a ship (for those who haven't played the 1st game). Dead Space is a sci-fi epic with emotion and horror packed into two little games, as of now, that could be a set of films or a TV series. Fans of the horror, shooter and action genres should all play this game no matter what you've heard and check out the first one as well because you need the original for this one to hold its place among the greatest. Dead Space is one of the greatest sagas of all time and should become more known.
