The firs thing that you'll notice when playing "Dead Space is the lack of a HUD. Every crucial piece of information will be displayed on your character. All of the mechanics are and display are very innovative and look pretty neat. The inventory system is lacking however. In order to heal or to access crucial items one is required to go through the inventory screen which can be fairly inconvenient at certain moments. The Storyline and design are also very unoriginal almost cliche, blatantly borrowing elements from Doom 3 and Bioshock. The story has been so overdone that it is almost unbearable to watch it unfold. Overall, the game is enjoyable there are only a few flaws in the actual game play, none worth mentioning. However, I deducted 2 points because of the lack of originality and terribly overdone storyline.
