yea were way too nit picky, while were at it lets make starcraft 2 a FPS, and diablo 3 is going to be a flight sim.
this game was the last real survival horror game that was both scary ( horror ) and had you on the ropes all the time ( survival / surviving ) , if they make you another over powered killing machine it will be neither scary nor any real survival , it will almost literally be resident evil 5 in space spiced up with a bit of gears of war for good measure.
And to that I say look at Resident Evil 4. Its the best selling game of its series, the most critically acclaimed of its series and yet different from what came before. I'm just saying that chances of this game just down right sucking are pretty slim. In the worst case scenario we get a Bioshock 2 scenario: the game is ok, but just doesn't live up to its predecessor; which in all honesty I can live with. But I do hope the game can still be just as scary as the first one.
resident evil 4 was a great game, resident evil 5 was not, Dead space = resident evil 4, and now we have a sequel coming out to dead space , and from what they said about being more action oriented, it sounds like it is going down the exact same path as RE5.
dead space right from the get go has emulated RE4, and all indicators at the moment point to the fact that dead space 2 will emulate RE5, which is what concerns me.
I have aboslutely no doubt it will be a great game - game play wise - but that doesn't mean it will be a great dead space or survival horror game, there are enough 3rd person shooter action games out there ( now including RE series ) we dont need another one, we have gears of war for that, lets keep at least one franchise firmly rooted in survival horror.
I sure do hope I am wrong , because dead space is probably my favorite game of the xbox 360 generation outside of mass effect 2.
