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.
WOW This game brings back the true meaning of survival horror! The eerie music, dead silence and then a whisper = SPOOKY! I had high hopes for this one before it came out and it has not let me down yet! If you like a good third person scare the pants off of you shooter pick this one up!
This game gives what has been missing from videogames since the first Resident Evil. That insane adrenaline rush you get when monsters pop out of nowhere. Uses the cinematic over the shoulder view like RE4, but improves on the controls, AND you can fire while moving. Made even more realistic by the fact that opening your inventory, or shopping for new guns does not pause the game.
The only part that I wouldn't give a ten is the mission setup, I think it would be more entertaining if you had a free roam map, rather than locked doors confining you to the area of the current mission. This can make it seem repetitive at times, but in no way detracts from the game itself.
