About to begin my very first play through. Been spending the last hour or so, tweaking my mechanism settings. Mainly touching up the audio.  For a video game that seems all about the atmosphere, and less about the combat. What challenge setting did you use and why? how did it effect your play through?  I to be thinking, ns would invest some time in the menu of mine sound system and also monitor video clip settings to do the environment of Dead space awesomererer. Then just collection the an obstacle to easy, therefore I can just enjoy the ride and also blast aliens.  Like a movie. Aliens to it is in exact. I simply want come mow down and also chop up part necromorphs! must Issac it is in a god or must it be around survival?

I began with normal. I had actually no problem quickly beating the video game in about...5=8 hours. Most likely because ns played dead space 1 because that the entire week leading approximately the release. So ns did it with ease and no deaths

I go Survivalist and also it to be a pretty good balance because that me. Ammo to be constantly short which made it way more tense. I wussed the end at the an extremely end at the critical boss and turned it down to normal cause my loadout wasn"t a an excellent set up because that it and also i was just acquiring frustrated and also wanted to check out the end.


Those goddamn zero babies to be annoying together hell. I chosen the setting for the boss yet not the actual fight in ~ all.

"I went from regular to simple at the end for the very same reason. The fight was level out dumb. "i entered the final battle with 9 bullets in my plasma cutter and a little med pack. On normal, yet still

 i"d to speak play normal. Easy appears tempting because it enables you to just roll through the game, however having some element of worry over the enemies" ability to take you the end is a necessary component of the setting imo.


I walk Survivalist because that my first run. Didn"t need to much trouble until the last boss as I to be low top top ammo. Reloaded to start of chapter and brought follow me the pressure Gun *I Think* and totally whooped it. Go onto Zealot after and had no issues. To be doing hardcore, acquired to bowl 2 there is no saving and the mine 360 crashed throughout the elavator ride. Might try again over Easter holz.


Survivalist because that the first playthrough. I"m honestly no very an excellent at video games and DS2 began out kicking mine ass some. Yet I execute learn and also when i am motivated, i try not to make lazy mistakes. I usually begin off on the challenge one over normal anyways because if the game lets me slack ns don"t have any type of fun. Thats no to say ns sound prefer I am having fun as soon as yelling in ~ the screen...but ns am.

I purchase the original Dead room the other day (i desire to play it before i try DS2) and also decided to try it ~ above hard first because ns think i"m a gibberish gamer dude and also wanted a challenge. It"s really quite tough, hard on dead an are is actually tough unlike other games where it"s the normal setting for people who play games regularly.  But together i claimed this is on the original, it could not it is in the same. I"m definitely going come restart on common i think.

"I go from typical to straightforward at the finish for the same reason. The fight was level out dumb. "i went into the final fight with 9 bullets in my plasma cutter and also a little med pack. ~ above normal, but still "I had actually the Plasma Pistol, Javelin Gun, Seeker Rifle and also Pulse Rifle and a tiny medpack. Aside from the Pulse Rifle the other guns are bad for the fight. It didn"t damage the game by any way but I preferred the boss from the very first game waaaay more.

I thought my scratch zealot operation was tougher 보다 hardcore mode. What component did you get stuck on? "The component I got stuck ~ above was when you walk earlier through the big area before the the Unitology Church, 2 pregos come and also like a gazilion leapers. The leapers space a mandrel in mine side.
dpedal1:  If I"m remembering that component right there must be a shop at one end of the corridor. You deserve to really bottleneck the opponents there and also make really great use the stasis to make points a little an ext manageable.  Just talking about this video game again makes me desire to go and get it again.
