    Little variety of enemy. Same old same old weaponry. Tunnel shooter. It took me 15-20 hours to finish, and I couldn't wait to get done. Boring.

    Breaks my heart to see this series become garbage. First, the game no longer tries to scare you psychologically, but instead, uses Doom 3 jump out tactics. These techniques are unsuitable as eventually you develop an immunity to it. Next the game was ridiculously easy compared to its predecessor. The storyline was so basic and leaves you with the feeling that you are doing a lot of the Breaks my heart to see this series become garbage.

    Now, the spine tingling sequel, Project Origin is here to continue the story of the psychic and psychotic Alma with damn good results. [Mar 2009, p.78]
  2. It feels a lot like that last "007" movie: plenty of fun, but nowhere near as awesome as we hoped it'd be. [Mar 2009, p.76]
  3. While the multiplayer is weak and the mood won’t make people forget Dead Space any time soon, the solid action core makes it worth a play.
