I will get the negative out of the way first: 1.) Not as scary as I was hoping for. It's somewhat unsettling just from sheer gore alone. But when compared to F.E.A.R. or even Bioshock, or R.E.4 it doesn't stack up...that is just my opinion as many others disagree. 2.) I wish there was more variety with enemies. 3.) Be sure not to play on easy, because it is way too easy.
The positives: Pretty much everything else. Great graphics and atmosphere. All the little details that went into this are incredible. Decent story. Extremely gory. Great controls. All in all a VERY good game. I highly reccommend it. I probably would have given an even better score if I wouldn't have got it at the same time as Bioshock which makes most games seem...well not as good.
This is to date the best console shooter I've played to date. I just love the designers' approach on making a different style 3D shooter. Dead Space is the kind of game you need to turn all the lights off and crank the volume up for to get that "real" effect. Trust me, the first time one of those things jumps down from the ceiling, you'll know what I'm talking about.
