In DeadIn the bold and often-bloody Dead Space gamers step into a third-person sci-fi survival horror experience that delivers psychological thrills and gruesome action. Set in the cold blackness of deep space, the atmosphere is soaked with a feeling of tension, dread and sheer terror. In Dead Space, players step into the role of engineer Isaac Clarke – an ordinary man on a seemingly routine mission to fix the communications systems aboard a deep space mining ship. It is not long before Isaac awakes to a living nightmare when he learns that the ship's crew has been ravaged by a vicious alien infestation. He must fight through the dead silence and darkness of deep space to stay alive. [Electronic Arts] Expand

    It's easily the best survival horror game since the masterful "Resident Evil 4" and it sets the bar high for graphics, sound, and scares in its respective genre. Dead Space is an artistic nightmare clearly designed for survival horror fans by a passionate and dedicated team of like-minded gamers. Just be sure to play it with the lights on.
  2. There are no downsides to Dead Space, the story is intense, the graphics are great, sound is perfect, action sequences are intense and the list goes on.
  3. Dead Space is essentially your opportunity to play through a sci-fi horror flick; which is just about every gamer’s fantasy. It is a near-perfect package for those looking for to get their survival horror fix.

    Dead Space is easily the most atmospherically intense, genuinely scary and well-built survival horror experience of this current generation.
  5. Dead Space is one of best Survival Horror releases in years. Tense, violent and incredibly aggressive; playing it at night with a loud 5.1 sound system can provide you the most spectacular scare moments of your life.
  6. Dead Space is a fairly linear affair that will take most gamers a little over ten hours to complete. However, it is one hell of a ride.
  7. A few standard scare tactics (dramatic music, flickering lights) and gory battles may satisfy hardened fans of horror, but loot-hunting and taxi missions will likely haunt your dreams more than the given monstrosities of death.

    I think that the atmosphere in this game does it all. The sound effects are simply amazing and the enemies never stop to surprise me when II think that the atmosphere in this game does it all. The sound effects are simply amazing and the enemies never stop to surprise me when I am playing. The graphics are really well done and I often found myself completly "in character" because of this. Everything is top notch! I cannot wait for the sequel. Expand

    I am Dead Space's ultimate fan! I have been playing the game sneakily since the project's x slice. I remember playing through the I am Dead Space's ultimate fan! I have been playing the game sneakily since the project's x slice. I remember playing through the first working level of the game in sheer awe. Its gameplay is superb and the audio quality rates next to none - easily the best incorporation of sound into a video game I have yet to see (that includes those pansy guitar hero games - dead space >!) And for all you survival horror fans living in your mom's basements playing resident evil on repeat- repeat no more! In fact, throw out your used and overspun RE discs and hail in a new age, and a new disc to be worshiped and kept in your safe next to your Kerrigan posters. Dead Space is here, people, and it reigns. Expand

    "Game of the Year"-2008
    A game I can't say enough about to express my love for it. I'll try to make this simple. Dead Space is one of the greatest game ever made! It's the best and scariest horror game you'll ever play. No game brings bigger chills and scares then Dead Space. The story line is great, and very intense. Voice acting is amazing. The game play is great, and just the way it should be. Like I said, there's not enough I can say to express my love for this game. I'll leave you with this-Dead Space deserves your attention, and hopefully, you won't be disappointed.

    What a pathetic escuse for a horror-game.
