"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.

I recently was given a copy of Dead Space by a friend. Now I'm not normally a horror player, but I continued on any way. This game is simply astounding. The story is compelling, and rich, with twist and turns that kept me on the edge of my seat. Though! I will say some of the characters are annoying, and the story, though rich, had a few predictable elements to it. As for horror, the mere atmosphere is enough to scare even veteran players. The monsters are grotesque and horrifying as well. There isn't enough I can say about this game. Its a classic!

Dead Space is everything an Alien, Aliens, The Thing, Resident Evil 4 fan would ever want. The terrors of being secluded in space on a derelict ship full of nasty deformed humans whose only purpose is to rip you apart in many delectable ways are fully fleshed out in this fresh survival horror game. Everything is top notch from the sound, level design, setting, gameplay, and story. As Resident Evil 4 was fun to pick up and play over and over again, Dead Space will leave you wanting to come back to the horrors of the USG Ishimura over and over again.

I have always been in search of a good thrilling experience, and I can say I found it with EA's Dead Space. I have heard negative things about EA as they "ruin" games (Which the don't) but i gave Dead Space a try and it got my heart racing as I got plenty of scares from playing the story. Keeping track on your oxygen level, as well as keeping you body together, along with fighting necromorphs is very suspenseful and scary, especially when you play the game at night. Highly suggest you pick this game up and add it to you inventory as you won't be disappointed.
Horrifying, but I love it!BlockAgent | Sept. 17, 2013 | See all BlockAgent's reviews »
This game gives you chills while you walk your character down the darkened halls of the space station. You aren't sure if you want to continue down the hall because you are afraid of what might be around the corner..but you can't help but look anyway. That's when this game grabs you and scares the heck out of you! The game is alot of fun because of that. The game has alot going for it, great graphics (even by today's standards), great sound effects and creepy music, fun gameplay and good voice acting as well. The controls and functions take a little bit to get used to, but then they are fine and become second nature. If you are looking for an intense game that will keep you creeped out and on the edge of your seat, treat yourself to this one.

This game is NOT for the weak hearted! Be warned :P I can't describe how brilliant this game is for any horror/action fan. The best part of any horror game/movie/series is the build-up and wow does this deliver that. For someone like me who goes at a slow pace looking into every nook & cranny, this is our nexus: randomly placed scribbles which add so much to the atmosphere, carefully laid doodads (bodies, items) which all tell a silent story of their own, and the eerie voices singing sweet lullabies which will chill you to the very bone. The combat deserves praise on its own: Innovative mechanics of decapitation and dismembering utilising an awesome physics engine so that every body part has its own animation making the enemy specifically weaker for that part (cut the arms and it will still come at you with a wide open jaw ready to gnaw you to shreds). Varied enemies each with their own mechanics and an ammo conservation approach make combat always new & refreshing. Know which weapon to use when and where. Add in special modules of Tele-kiinesis and Stasis, for even more varied combat.
All of this is done in a very intuitive manner, there is no huge wall of information thrust on you, you learn as and when you need to learn while doing it. Aside from combat there are numerous other mission specific mechanics, from Vacuum oxygen aided combat to using Ship defense cannons and not to forget Zero-gravity basketball, you will never feel repetitiveness.
The only downside is some PC porting related issues which can be solved easily, but still lower the score for objectiveness :)
