IGN: Dead Space Review

IGN Writes: Call it science fiction survival horror, but Dead Space does the genre proud with an engaging story; action that's tense, fast-paced and extremely violent; as well as atmospheric qualities that will get under your skin and make you jump. It may be a newcomer, but the seeds of an incredible franchise have been sown, and EA's in a great position to reap a phenomenal franchise full of scares. If you like survival horror, action or sci-fi, Dead Space needs to be on your radar.

Pretty good score I'd say but after reading the review, it looked as if the score should be a little higher. The reviewer thoroughly enjoyed the experience but was really burned by the difficulty issue. That said I'm appreciate what seems like a honest score by this person. I hate games getting 10's. We all know that no game should ever receive that perfect score. None have ever been perfect but I have played a couple 9.9's.
Regardless, I pre-ordered from BB and will purchase on day 1.

I still remember the time I watched that movie in the theater. Scary shiat.

This game reminds me of that and is indeed quite similar being in space and in a dead spacecraft.

I might get this one. But man, so many games, so little time.

R2
LBP
SOCOM
Fat Princes
Headset
Fallout 3

I will have to chose between
Farcry 2
Dead space
Another IP

My money is on deadspace so far.

I'm not going to cry conspiracy here, but there may be a little bit of a bias against the game. How did GTA get a PERFECT 10 but this falls short of a 9? I think it's a good score, but it should have been a nine.

"waaaaaah, it's too hard, I don't like being dismembered by scary monsters when I'm trying to get this review done in time, my whole livelyhood is made of playing games and this one's too difficult....WAAAAAAAAAH, time to change my diaper"

WHEN will you all SHUT UP about GTA? IGN really enjoyed GTA, they thought it was a masterpiece and a perfect game, of which I would say it was close to both. SO DID A BILLION OTHER WEBSITES. MAYBE it WAS good... Your opinion differs somewhat and so you NEVER STOP WHINING ABOUT IT. IT WAS A GREAT GAME GET OVER IT.

GTA IV: most overrated game by critics, most underrated game by annoying gamers

UGH at least IGN is capable of changing their diaper, you have to get someone to do it for you.

try clicking the link.....maybe, JUST MAYBE you'll find out....or is that just me? /end sarcasm

I have never understood why people see much difference between TPS and FPS.

In a FPS, you walk around and shoot people. In a TPS, you walk around and shoot people while staring at your characters butt the entire game.

One.... just plain old preference. Some like it, some don't. Some like how 1st person helps heighten the immersion by putting you "in the game." Other like a 3rd person view that allows them to see more of their surroundings...

Reason Two (and unfortunately my f'd up reason): motion sickness. Since Doom, I love 1st person games - but they don't love me. Unless I'm downing dramamine, after a little while I start to get head-aces, upset stomach, and nausea. Granted, it can happen with 3rd person view games also like the first Twisted Metal, the 1st Katamari game (not the 2nd one though), and even Rachet and Clank: ToFD - but the occurrence is much, much more rare.

It won't stop me from playing if the game is a must play - just pop some meds for Vertigo and let the fun begin. :)

The people you REALLY have to feel sorry for are the epileptics :(

But I don't think that 1st / 3rd person view matter in their case - maybe it's just Pikachu / Speed Racer the movie type flashing lights?
