"an instant action classic. While the ride is fairly short - the game could be completed in a few evenings - and offers no real extras, it’s perfected to the point where it’s entirely satisfying." - ThunderboltGames.com

Dead Space from EA is sure to please any action-adventure gamer looking for a bloody battle against deadly aliens.
Dead Space for PC begins when a massive mining ship, the USG Ishimura, comes in contact with a mysterious alien artifact and suddenly loses its communications with Earth. Engineer Isaac Clarke is sent to repair the Ishimura's communications, but arrives to find a floating vessel that has become a complete bloodbath. The crew is mutilated and infected with an ancient alien scourge.
Clarke's repair mission is transformed to one of survival as he fights to save himself and return the artifact to the planet at any cost.

Many games call themselves "action horror" but very few are truly that. Dead space however, is a terrifying shooter that will make you jump countless times. The atmosphere was nailed in this game, with dark, foreboding corridors on an abandoned space ship. The game features extensive character and weapon upgrades, and the story serves to push the game along nicely. The visuals are sharp and the sounds creepy. This game is best experienced while playing in the dark.
The scariest game I've ever playedsl1ck | April 24, 2013 | See all sl1ck's reviews »
I am somewhat of a horror fps fanatic, and for me no game has been scarier or better than Dead Space. Every moment is tense and frightening. You almost feel worn out by the end of the game.
This is also the best game in the Dead Space trilogy. Dead Space 2 and 3 may have slicker combat, but they aren't nearly as scary or unpredictable as the original Dead Space.

I can only say good things about this game. You start the game boarding a planetcracker (a ship that mines planets), when things go horribly wrong. You soon discover that you are now in a claustrophobic environment with creatures trying to kill you called Necromorphs.
Overall if you like being scared and dispatching your enemies in gory ways, this game will fulfill those wishes. It keeps a tense feeling as you progress through the game and its myriad of small puzzle elements. It is hard to get lost, since you have the option to find your way with a feature that draws a line to your next destination. It isn't a really difficult game, but it draws you in after you get passed the middle part of the game, which kind of drags out.
Graphics and audio are topnotch, and I couldn't find any bugs while playing it. Well worth the price the admission, if you like horror action games, give this game a try, you will not be dissapointed.
