I'm surprisingly engaged by Dead Space. I'm at Chapter 6 - I believe, which is around halfway through. The pacing is very good - though it's ultimately still too much action, too little tension.
Since I know DS2 is much worse - I can only hope I can get through it because I'm aware of it before going in.
It's what got me through Mass Effect 2 the second time.
Strangely, it seems that Dead Space has had the same progression of design as Mass Effect has had.
Both series started out focusing on atmosphere and story, without constant combat - and both have devolved into straight-up shooters. Dead Space 3 seems to have expanded the weapon system - exactly like Mass Effect 3 expanded the weapon/mod system.
Both are published by EA… Hmmm
Hehe, anyway, I'd forgotten just how powerful the sound design is in Dead Space. I've hooked my PC up to the projector and I'm experiencing everything in surround sound. Amazing sound in this game.
