Re: Post here when you beat a game. I mean it!
Finally finished Dead Space 2 today.
It was a good game, nice variation on the normal corridor shooter and some good zero-G interludes. I found it a little long for my liking (half the running time would have suited me) and the final two levels were infuriating.
The penultimate level I had to go back three save points (not checkpoints, save points) so that I could stock up on the items needed to get through the level, and I made the same mistake on the last level (I turned it down to Easy for the final boss fight because I just could not be arsed going back at that point).
But not to be overly negative - it was a pretty good game and was well polished and had some really fun sequences. Implied in the ending is that we'll be doing this many, many more times. I don't know if they'll be able to sustain many more sequels without it getting stale though.
