This game has GAME OF THE YEAR written all over it. First, it has the best graphics I have ever seen on the XBox 360; Second, it has a great story line and isn't just a space horror shoot em up; Third, this game has made me have to change my underwear on more than one occasion. With 5.1 surround and a HD TV, this game is EXTRA CREEPY. With my surround sound on, all the ambient noise (or lack thereof), really causes you to turn around and see what's behind you. EA games has finally reached the pinnacle of video games. If you buy/rent one game this year, it would have to be DEAD SPACE. In the upcoming months there are going to be some great games released for both the 360 and the PS3 (Little Big Planet, Gears of War 2, Fable 2, Fallout 3), just to name some titles. These games are going to have major competition against DEAD SPACE. The only thing this game has against it is that the other games are more well known sequels (except for Little Big Planet). I have been putting the word out for this game to all my friends, and the ones who have rented/bought it agree with me...this is a great game and deserves a 10. If this game had a great Multiplayer (it doesn't have a MP), then it would be unstoppable. Do yourself a favor, give this one a chance...you'll be glad you did. Oh, bring an extra pair of shorts to change into.
This game is great!!!!!!! The only problem is ammo, projectiles, weaponry. Now don’t get me wrong the guns you get are fine but it seams like when you find yourself in a tight stitch you run low on defense really quickly. Almost like being on a hot date and your deodorant wears 30min in. I would never buy that deodorant again.
With so many games coming out that are just mediocre this game stands apart from the crowd. Not only are the graphics outstanding but the game play is equally awesome. This is one of those games (like so many others) that I have been waiting for. But unlike those others that were just ok to play, this game is truly worth the price of admission. The weapons are equally impressive and one of my favorite features is that you have to think about the best way to take down the aliens by dismemberment not just shoot them until they drop. Of course playing this game in full surround sound is a must because I found myself jumping a few times. Survival horror in space, very cool concept. This is a definate must play, you will not be dissapointed.
