Dead Effect 2 continues where the previous game left off. On the spaceship ESS Meridian, death was conquered by a mad scientist, but many of the test subjects turned into zombies as a result. Instead of being rewarded for stopping the madman, your character wakes up in a lab being experimented on. A cyborg named Danette aides in freeing you, but needs your help in return. In total there are twenty missions and over one hundred and seventy Steam achievements in this 3D first-person shooter game.
