Dead Space (PC)

 

The survival horror genre is rife with games in which you are isolated in a hostile environment full of monsters, and Dead Space is no exception. But from the moment you're thrown into the middle of the fray in the heart-pounding introduction until the...

Dead Space (PS3) Review

 

A retrospective look at Visceral Games' first title, the horrific Dead Space.

In every zombie game imaginable, the conventional method of killing off the opponent is removing the head or inflicting damage to the brain. Visceral took this ideology and kicked it down the stairs with the Necromorphs. They come in many different...

In space, no one can hear you scr... AHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!

An excellent new addition to the splinter group of action games centered around horror. I suspect they will make a sequel and I suspect it too will spawn a franchise. Dead Space gets it right when it comes to the scares.

Blood caked walls. Walking corpses. Flickering, unreliable lighting. Did Halo and Silent Hill have an illegitimate child?

Dead Space offers the best mix of action, customization and plot since Resident Evil 4.

Superbly detailed action, story and upgrade system; incredibly scary; includes a veritable pantheon of awesome mechanics

Leave some time after the credits roll to pull yourself together and stop your hands from shaking; no, seriously

Extraterrestrial body-part party

Varied alien types ; Creepy atmosphere ; Unique interface

Sluggish mouse control ; Too many Mr. Fixit missions ; Bland story

Dead Space Game Review - PC

 

Dead Space relies heavily on its story and it is a benchmark for understanding just why you are on board a derelict space station overrun by vicious alien creatures. Dead Space itself is actually the continuation of a branching storyline that began in...

Gory, scary, and ultimately very entertaining; audio and visuals combine to create the ultimate horror experience

Missions could have used more diversity

The game begins with the giant ship, USG Ishimura, already having been attacked by a mysterious force, while Isaac Clarke and the Concordance Extraction Corporation are responding to a distress signal issued out by someone onboard the Ishimura. Right...

Amongst other countless titles EA has in development right now, the publisher decided to tackle the horror genre with the BioShock-ish sci-fi shooter Dead Space. While BioShock may be the first obvious comparison, it looks as though Dead Space relies...

Consumer review by:

A great game, but superb reactions are neccessary!

 

Overall, the pro's for me outweighed the cons by a huge margin. The artwork is beatiful, as are the graphics, the story is deep, believable and makes you actually feel for the characters. Furthermore, the game is one of the most original I have ever...

The graphics, even in 2010 are top notch. The storyline was of a cinematic scale and the characters felt real and believable. Controls are fully adjustable. Truly will have you wetting your pants in places

You have to have superb reacions and mouse skills. This is made harder by no proper head up display or aiming cursor. Dismembering necromorphs will have you swearing fouler words than the devil bears to hear, some of it is admittedly repetitive

Cannot configure Controls

 

I found out that this was a console port to the P.C. bad , bad and more bad. No patches and the developer doesn't care after I checked out many sites with posts on this game. Apparently this game is great on the console but is bad on the ... Expand...

Nothing, since I cannot configure it to play it

Mostly everything. My younger daughter bought this for my birthday. Loaded it up on AMD 9600 Quad Core. When I got to the configuration screen I found that parts of he configuration boxes were cut off so I couldn't select many options
