A.V. Club: Dead Space Review

Originality is overrated. Dead Space proudly wears a host of influences on its sleeve: Alien and Solaris, Half-Life and Resident Evil 4. Plenty of boilerplate game design factors in, too: claustrophobic corridors, explosive canisters, gathering credits to spend at stores, even though you're on a dead ship. But Dead Space is a reminder that influence and convention, sharply focused, can become terrifically creepy.

The story is too old to be commented.
