For many different reasons, we all have games that slipped past our radar. Maybe the game wasn’t overly publicized or maybe you were hooked on a different game. I signed up for Gamefly, since I can’t afford to go out and buy every-single game I want! You can join me here, as I work my way down my list of games. Some games will only be a few months old others will be several years old. I’ll share a quick low down on all the games Gamefly sends my way and let you know what’s worth renting, buying and which one’s make better coasters.
Keep in mind these are not meant to be full game reviews. Let’s face it, if you’re not in love after the first few hours of a game, it’s just not meant to be!
Dead Space 2
Published by: Electronic Arts
Developed by: Visceral Games
Release Date: January 25, 2011
Following Isaac 3 years after the events in the first Dead Space. Isaac is a systems engineer that has a haunted vision of the past and the guilt of being responsible for his girlfriend’s death. The storyline is engaging, action packed, and suspenseful. My heart was racing as I worked my way through ghostly levels that echoed with unseen beings. Blasting limbs off of the monsters that lurk around every corner is addicting, but it’s the visions Isaac is tormented by that really keep you up at night. Dead Space 2 puts you in the shoes of a hero that has been through hell and has the physiological scars to prove it. For myself, Dead Space 2 was a different type of game, but definitely worth renting. I would recommend playing the first Dead Space before jumping into the second. If you’re a fan of action horror games, with the current price of $30, you can’t go wrong purchasing it.
Final Verdict: Buy
