Dead Space is the sequel Resident Evil 4 deserved

Eurogamer's Rick writes: "It's often lamented that Resident Evil 4 never received the follow-up it deserved. Resi 5 and 6 have their defenders, but they're not in the same league as Mikami's masterpiece. I think there's a case to be made that Dead Space is that sequel. Civilization developers Firaxis has a theory that a sequel should be one third old, one third changed, and one third new. With regard to Resident Evil 4, Dead Space hits those markers almost exactly. It builds on the ideas of Capcom's game, and even fixes a few of the problems, such as Resi's notoriously terrible dialogue. For a game that set out with the premise of deliberately aping one of the best games of all time, I'd struggle to think of a better accolade."

Dead space used the re4 formula really well. Basically..

I guess.... I did enjoy the series, and then completely ignored DS3.

I only liked the first one. That first game though, it was almost perfect. A lot was drawn from re4 and there is no denying it. The action, pacing, inventory and atmosphere. Everything really.

It wasn't a shameful clone though, it upgraded everything and added great things like dismemberment. Improved storytelling with hardly any cutscenes. Sure the story was fairly light but the atmosphere told the tale instead. That is amazing game writing.

Dead space is easily one of my favorite games of all time. I could probably play it today and like it just as much as I did years ago.

I agree. Dead space is a masterpiece.

agreed the first two Dead Space games are among some of the best survival horror titles ever created.

the game doesn't get the credit it deserves.

I would argue that the original Dead Space is more Resident Evil than Resident Evil 4.

Dead Space truly captures the survival elements

The original dead space was really good. Didn't finish the second game, and never played the 3rd. But the first game was great to play with headphones haha

The first and second were a couple of my favs of the time. Loved them. The third chgd things up a bit in a way that I didn't really like. More action game, less suspense/jump scares. I really enjoyed that series.

You should finish the second game it's really amazing I personally like it's slightly better than the first game but I would definitely say stay away from Dead Space 3 lol
