This was my first exposure to Dead Space and I loved it so much I wanna get into the rest of the series.
Dead Space 2 Remake WIEN!?
As far as one-to-one remakes go, this is one of the best of all time. The gameplay and balance have been improved and refined, the bad zero-g and asteroid sections from the original were reworked, and side content was introduced that fit so well into the pacing of the main campaign that new players probably wouldn't even know it was added in the remake. The technical improvements genuinely do a lot to enhance the atmosphere and immersion, and introducing some randomness when backtracking improves the pacing and keeps some tension if you decide to do that.
There are a couple small things the original did better, but they're fairly insignificant in comparison to what was improved. My main gripe is that some of the voice acting was better in the original, and that hurts the story at times. For that reason I recommend playing the original first instead of starting with this one, but I think this is the definitive version overall and it's the version I'm going to be replaying from now on.
I wrote a longer review, but here is my general thoughts:
“Dead Space” (2023) may not be high art, but is the perfected version of a horror classic that has stood the test of time and held up against its competition. This is one of the best remakes I’ve experienced as it keeps the soul of the original game but improves it so much that it stands apart from its predecessor. The graphics updates are nice and substantial, but pales in comparison to the gameplay, story and setting updates that really push this remake above others.
its good,i expected a little bit more but still good
Un remake fantástico de un juego que ya de por sí era fantástico. Es extremadamente fiel casi en todo momento, pero cambia alguna que otra cosilla, siempre a mejor.
Dead Space siempre ha sido un juego excelente, ya no solo por tener mecánicas jugables muy interesantes o por el buen diseño de niveles, sino por lo inmersivo y tenso que consigue ser en todo momento, incluso cuando sabes que estás a salvo.
El añadido de darle una voz y una cara a Isaac está bien, supongo, pero tampoco aporta demasiado al conjunto global. Las mejoras de iluminación, audio y, sobre todo, el gore hacen que todo sea mucho más robusto y que brille mucho más. Las misiones secundarias son pocas y no demasiado elaboradas, pero añaden cositas extra que tampoco están de más.
Recomendable si habéis jugado al original, MUY recomendable si no lo habéis hecho. Una joyita del género.
A fantastic remake for an already fantastic game. It's extremely faithful in almost every moment, but changes a few things here and there, always for the better.
Dead Space has always been an excellent game, not just because it had very interesting gameplay mechanics or great level design, but because of how immersive and tense it manages to be at all times, even when you know you're safe.
Giving Isaac a voice and a face is fine, I guess, but it doesn't really add much to the whole. The upgrades in lighting, audio and, most of all, gore, make everything more robust and lets it all shine more. The secondary stuff is scarce and not too elaborate, but it adds some side stuff that doesn't feel like filler.
Recommended if you've played the original, STRONGLY recommended if you haven't. A gem of the genre.
