Dead Space's first level, New Arrivals, is among the best opening levels ever seen in a video game for a few key reasons.
The entire game is a masterpiece.
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.
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
that nightmare of a hell hole also created it in the first place.. so.. huh?
Sure who else can kill a franchise or a studio quicker then EA maybe Activision
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.
The game is fantastic.
Well, at least were getting Callisto Protocol.
I have to agree fantastic game i dont do remasters but this and bloodborne I may cave 😀
I love this game, the atmosphere, sound design. And it scared the hell out of me!! Yes needs remastering from the ground up. Or another installment.
The best horror movie I've ever played. Part of what this game nailed so brilliantly was pacing. This opening levels is one of my favourite moments in the history of gaming. Stone cold classic
I couldn't get into these the first time I played them but recently I have had the urge to them another go. Bought 2 of them. Just need to find the first.
Let's hope The Callisto Protocol can come close or even exceed Dead Space's near-perfect horror atmosphere.
The Dead Space Trilogy and the F.E.A.R Trilogy need to be remastered/remade, these are amazing horror games.
There is no need to remaster Dead Space The game still looks and plays great. Make a new one instead.
I wish we had dead space 4 :(
We will get it. The creative minds are doing another space horror title under a new studio.
Yep...i second that to!!
Dead Space was an outstanding game and the sequel was great too. Three, not so much. I loved that Isaac didn't start out the game as some badass military, mercenary, or police and instead was an engineer who learned to bring the pain. Such a great horror game.
Cause it scared the shit out of you.
A nice slow burn for that first mission. Really babies you into the game before it comes at you full steeam. Love it.
It's an iconic gaming masterpiece across all gaming generations
fantastic game. to bad its an EA game.
Iv never had the opportunity to play but it’s in the backlog 💪💪 better late than never
