"I was...utterly engaged from the very first scene," writes a Globe and Mail reporter of his experience with Dead Space. "My immediate fascination might just have something to do with the fact that it hits a lot of my own personal buttons...I see in its presentation shades of many of my favourite movies and games, including The Thing, Aliens, Bioshock, Doom 3, and System Shock. And I have to admit that I'm a sucker for high-definition eye candy, which this game has in spades. Whatever the reason, I'm smitten. I've got more games to play on my plate this fall than I care to contemplate, but all I can think about right now is climbing back aboard Dead Space's haunted starship and figuring out what created the monsters stalking my poor engineer."
