"The ending and backstory are kind of clichéd, though the expected plot twists aren't. Without giving it away, I'll simply say that the story heavily borrows, but does so intelligently. And the bosses, while not challenging, are highly memorable. Dead Space may not scare as much as some people like, but that is only the truth for those who have developed a strong resistance. To all but the most hardened and critical, Dead Space is thrilling."
