If you missed out on the Steam deal last month to pick up both Dead Space titles for around the same price, Green Man Gaming have an offer that allows you to get the second instalment for a fiver. It’s the current cheapest deal, and will save you around a fiver over the next best retailer with stock.
While it doesn’t change much of what made its predecessor a great experience, its high standard of gameplay and set pieces manages to make it an even more enjoyable adventure than Issac’s last outing, with some multiplayer action thrown in as well once you’re done tearing up those Necromorphs.
The latest weekend deal from Steam brings both Dead Space titles down in price to a nice tidy sum. You can of course just purchase one or the other as they are both the cheapest listings around (more so in the case with Dead Space 2) so you have plenty of options at your disposal.
Dead Space 1 brought us an atmospheric and scary experience, and while Dead Space 2 focused more on the action side of things it was still an excellent game. The PC port was a bit of cumbersome without a gamepad, but it is still a joy (or scare) to play, and at this price it’s worth a look if you haven’t played them already. Thanks to chaywa @ HUKD!
Fear, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder: meaning that your tolerance to scares dictates whether Dead Space 2 is a great action game or a fantastic horror experience. Either way, we can all agree on the fact that it’s great; improving on its predecessor with varied backdrops, new necromorphs and greater scope for gory shenanigans.
Origin (EA's digital distribution network) are the cheapest retailers around at present, and for a fiver, this will probably make a decent early Christmas present for yourself.
We’ve reached the last day of the Steam Autumn Sale, with one more round of titles on offer that will expire at 6pm today. Here are our highlighted picks from the final cycle of the sale.
Thief: Deadly Shadows (£1.99): A sequel may well be in development, but until then you may want to relive the antics of master thief Garrett with this classic title. There may not be a huge saving with this one, but at £2 it’s worth a look if you want to experience a classic stealth title.
Dead Space 2 (£4.99): While not as groundbreaking (or scary) as its predecessor, Dead Space 2 was still an excellent sci-fi game that saw Isaac Clark return to tear up more Necromorphs. Definitely worth a fiver if you want to entertain yourself for a few nights (or more if you want to play the multiplayer.)
Greed Corp (£1.99): Those of you after some turn-based strategy action should pay attention to this one, as Greed Corp is a cracking title. Dynamic terrain keep things interesting in what is already a challenging affair, and at this price it’s almost a steal.

With the price falling to just a tenner, it’s the perfect time for Xbox 360 owners to experience the second instalment in the Dead Space series. Gamestation’s deal will mean you will make a saving of just under £2 in comparison to the next best price at Simply Games.
If you need another reason to get it, I have two strong words for you; exploding babies. That’s why you’re going to play this game, so you can see some rather creepy-looking exploding babies. While it doesn’t change much of what made its predecessor a great experience, its high standard of gameplay and set pieces manages to make it an even more enjoyable adventure than Issac’s last outing, with some multiplayer action thrown in as well once you’re done tearing up those Necromorphs. Thanks to 360baby @ HUKD!
Gamersgate are running a limited-time deal to grab Dead Space 2 for just over a tenner, but Gamestation has craftily undercut them with a stellar price for this competent title. Fear, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder: meaning that your tolerance to scares dictates whether Dead Space 2 is a great action game or a fantastic horror experience. Either way, we can all agree on the fact that it’s great; improving on its predecessor with varied backdrops, new necromorphs and greater scope for gory shenanigans. We reckon that Isaac’s new cliched gravelly voice is a step backwards, though.
Dead Space 2 offers you more scares, a whole load of knife edge tension, and plenty of Necromorphs to dismember after you've blasted them apart with whatever weapons you've got in your inventory. Even if you play this one during the day it's likely to terrify you and you'll more than likely be shaking in fear by the end of it. There are plenty of merchants to take your pick from in order to get this one for £12.99, which'll make you a saving of almost £2 on the next best offers out there.
Well Dead Space fans, it looks like you've got a bit of a choice when it comes to where you can grab your new copy of the game from, seeing as the GAME group (Game, Gamestation, and Gameplay) are parting with it on both the PS3 and Xbox for £20.98, which should make you a saving of around £3 on the PS3 and £5 on the 360. Also, the PS3 version at Game comes with some exclusive content, although it's not really clear what it is, and you can grab the 360 version for the same price from Amazon if you so choose. Thanks to missgem @ HUKD.
Gamestation are currently offering a great price on both the PS3 and XBox 360 versions of the excellent Dead Space sequel. The next best deal for a 360 copy will cost you £3, while the PS3 version is an extra £4.
We were all delighted to find that the sequel to our much loved Dead Space offered a fantastic balance of action and survival horror thrills, losing none of the feel of the original but offering many improvements, such as new necromorphs, some great set-pieces and the new multiplayer capability. Thanks to herby247 at HUKD!
Play have dropped the price of their Collector’s Edition for Dead Space 2, so if you’re a PS3 owner looking to get some extra goodies with your dismembering action then you are very much in luck. Included with the game is an in-game Rivet Gun unlock, a Unitology suit unlock and Force gun to go with it, a copy of the soundtrack and a featurette on how it was made, and some lithographs of the necromorphs. In addition to this you will also get a copy of Dead Space: Extraction to go with it, making it a hefty bundle for the price. Thanks to sits69 @ HUKD!
