Hell Descent: Dead Space Ignition is set before the events of Dead Space 2 and its goal is to explain just how the necromorphs made their way onto the space colony known as The Sprawl. Most likely influenced by the success of Dead Rising 2: Case Zero, Ignition follows a similar formula; a short $5 prequel to the main game. The issue here is that Dead Rising 2: Case Zero was actually a game; it was content pulled from the full title and molded into its own game. The problem with Dead Space Ignition is that it shouldn’t exist in its current form. The game is truly horrifying, but for all the wrong reasons. Hit the jump for the full review.
