Is DS2 any better than the first? I'm looking for something new this weekend, but the first one pissed me off at some of the boss fights, I'm too much of a casual gamer I guess. But the youtube vid of them showing the game to 'moms' is really telling me I need it.

I suggest you check the Steam forums regarding the massive number of issues with Dead Space 2 before you pick it up.

Yeah that plus the a common theme of "bad port" is what kept me from pulling the trigger even at 17 bucks. Sooo sick of game makers rushing crap to market and then NOT fixing it. First part is bad enough...second is unforgivable. :(

Steam has it on now, plus CODBO, and RF Guerilla (which was fun for a little while, 4.99 is a good price, just to see where the story goes into Armageddon, plus the cool weapons that destroy bridges. other than that it's basically a physics demo) YouTube - ‪Space Asshole‬‏

I bought DS2 from Steam, had zero issues. The controls actually feel better than the 1st imho. It's much like the first with some new stuff and improvements. I know what you mean about Boss fights, I tend to hate most of them in any game but I made it through DS1 and DS Extraction no problem and DS2 is going well. Go for it.
