Kombo writes: "EA's Dead Space launched on October 21st to rave reviews. Today its Metacritic rating stands at 89. It seems that people don't have enough good things to say about Dead Space. Much of this praise is well earned as Dead Space is the best next-gen survival horror game now on the market. EA's Redwood Shores Studio has completed a massive achievement in launching a critically and commercially successful new franchise. However, it all seems slanted, major reviews don't critique in a meaningful manner. Since Dead Space has already been confirmed to be the first in a series, we the gamers are integral in helping the developers "fix" their game. If they look to the major outlets reviews they won't find much help. I won't say any names, but most reviews simply nitpicked to find their critique on the game. One prominent review actually named a flaw and then justified its existence! It seems a little ridiculous."
