When something borrows from as many sources as Dead Space does, it is very easy for things to go horribly wrong. It is quite the delight that the game turned out as well as it did. In a world of gaming where most of the best sellers are sequels, Electronic Arts should be commended for taking a chance on a new property. Hopefully this will spur EA and other developers to take more chances on new properties and give gamers something different, if not entirely new. If they all turn out as well as Dead Space, the gaming future looks very good indeed.
