Random Gamer's Review of Dead Space

Andygoes writes, "Dead Space's story is a little bit like Half-Life meets DOOM III. The HL part comes in because, instead of being a big, bad, 'roid-driven space marine, you're a mute space engineer (maybe Isaac's last name is Freeman). It's also part DOOM III because, unlike HL, this game takes place in space and has abominations. We'll throw in a little Halo to the mix because the enemies are just as disgusting as the Flood. So, if you can imagine a little bit of those three games rolled in to one, you have the general idea of Dead Space; the mute protagonist engineer and his crew responds to a distress call from a ship that is badly damaged, arrives to meet the hordes of hell and - just like Halo's Flood - the baddies aren't dead when you think they should be..."

LOVE Dead Space.. By far one of the best games I have played this year

bgrundman3600d ago

I was pleasantly surprised at how much content was there

roblef3600d ago

What was the best thing about it?

bgrundman3600d ago

The atmosphere is amazingly dark and disturbing. It reminds me of the old nights lock in a dormroom playing Doom 3... that game would nearly make me crap myself

Neco5123600d ago

very scary game! i liked running through it

poopface13600d ago

I want to play this game. This game seems like the type of game you only need to rent, but itll still be great.

Yeah, this one sits near the top of my list of games to play.

bgrundman3600d ago

I recently got it in a trade and could not be happier with it. Lets see if it holds ups through the entire game though...

CrAppleton3600d ago

oh man.. If you haven't played this one yet you're missing out! AWESOME game!

bgrundman3600d ago

You will like it, just make sure the kids are down to bed before you fire it up. It is scary as hell!

roblef3600d ago

I can't wait to check this one out. I heard some anti-hype comments when it first came out, but with lowered expectations, this might be worth a look!

bgrundman3600d ago

From what I have played so far, you will not be disappointed at all.

roblef3600d ago

I love scifi movies and games. I hope this one is worth the hype!

I'm always torn about titles like Dead Space. I have no doubt it's a truly scary game, and one of EA's rare masterpieces. But it's difficult to justify dropping $60 on it.

Then again, when it's rented or purchased 2nd hand, the developers/publishers don't see that revenue - equally as important, they don't see it as a statistic necessarily.

Solution? What about budget-pricing titles like Dead Space with limited replay value at $39.99?

bgrundman3600d ago

I would rent it, because from what has been reported, the replay value is a bit limited. It will totally make for an awesome weekend though!
