Two words - strategic dismemberment. The folks at EA sure know their way into a girl's heart. This is your primary method of defense and attack in the upcoming game Dead Space, slated for a Halloween release.
The game is set in the future, and you play engineer Isaac Clarke, average Joe. When a mining ship, The USG Ishimura, ominously loses contact with Earth after an encounter with an alien artifact, you're sent to the ship to repair their communications system. However when you arrive, you find that the mining vessel has become a blood-soaked tomb. The crew had been infected by something alien, and the survivors have been malformed into gruesome creatures.
