The story picks up three years after the original on the Saturn's moon of Titan where you are literally thrown into things - tied up in a straight jacket, necromorphs everywhere, you must escape sans weapons in a pretty good intro. You're freed, but for awhile you wander around with naught but a flashlight for protection. You get your handy kinesis and finally your first weapon. Then the game proceeds to te...
