Excellent

Overrated game, good but not great!

A lot of hype for this game, I've played it for 3 hours so far and it's decent but not amazingly great. (I'll finish it but won't buy it)
Graphics are ok but I've seen equal or better on Halo 3, COD4 or GTA4.
Creepiness is not that high, I've seen better on RE games on PS2, you want creepy get condemned, darkness, dark sector or Jericho, the only thing that makes the suspense bigger than other games is the "horror movies" music being played when attacked.
Aliens are nothing spectacular, only one type and they only do one thing.
Weapons are nothing spectacular, and to get ammo and upgrades you have to carefully use your points/money and the slots available in the menu to strategically use what you can carry, same with medkits.
Save functions are not like other game where you go to the main menu and select "save and quit" here you have to find a "save" station in the ship, what's up with that?
On the good side, it's a good game with decent graphics and a somewhat ok story, but it could use more diversified aliens and weapons that kick more butts and that look and sound more impressive.
Controls are not typical but after a while you get used to it and since you can't do many things anyway (can't crouch or jump...) you get used to it and get good at it quickly and after learning out to use stores, upgrade weapons and where to get medkits and nodes to upgrades stuff, it becomes good and you can move along quickly without being frustrated.
One feature that makes everything much easier is the ability to be shown which way to go without having to go to the map which looks great in 3D but can be too much at times.

DEAD SPACE IS DEADLY!

From the opening cinematic Dead Space sinks it's chilling hooks into you. With it's jaw dropping graphics and mind altering lighting effects, this game delivers! It sets the standard for HUD displays! And keeps you on your toes with alien encounters from every direction. You have to be quick and accurate to bring down these ungodly creatures. The action is top notch, the suspense is intensely overwhelming, and the HD visuals will leave you drooling. Add the rich sci-fi story and you have yourself one heck of an adventure! Wait until the sun settles and the lights are out to play this baby! You're mommy can't save you this time.....

This Game Frickin Rocks, the story is good, graphics are good, audio scares the heck out of me from all of the creatures, but it is a offline game so i might get boring cause theres no offline feature, but it's still good
