I second that, the sound design alone is epic

I grew up playing Resident Evil. So I already liked Survival Horror. But when Dead Space came out I couldn't believe what I was seeing. Such a beautiful game with amazing graphics for its time. And it totally nailed the Survivor Horror genre in a time when the genre was on a downswing. Its one of those games that only comes around so often.

Agreed, Dead Space 1 is easily one of the best survival horror I've ever played.

Apart from the "push the big block" ending. I found that tedious.

I didn’t mind any of it. I think they even nailed the “final boss” which even the best games can get wrong. My favorite game is bioshock and that’s a prime example.

One of the best games I've ever played! And thoroughly agree with this statement

A magnificent game, I think I played it through at least 5 times.

EA need to Remaster these games!

3 should be remade though. It had way too much action so the horror aspect was mostly lost.

Shuckylad42d ago

I personally enjoyed 3 for the change of pace but your right in the horror taking a back seat compared to the first two games.

Dead Space great franchise shame that it fell into that nightmare of a hell hole called EA

yeahokwhatever42d ago

that nightmare of a hell hole also created it in the first place.. so.. huh?

Knightofelemia42d ago

Sure who else can kill a franchise or a studio quicker then EA maybe Activision

yeahokwhatever41d ago

this doesnt make sense. without EA, there is no dead space. dead space was an EA game. period. how is EA responsible for "killing it"? they gave you the opportunity to play it. that makes them the good guy in this story, not the bad guy.
