ok, if your a lover of challenges, horror and suspense, this is the game for you. I cant remember being this scared since the ring...(yes my phone rang after watching the weird video) I have a set of surround sound headphones. Let me tell you, I had to stop playing the game after the first fight with those creepy beasts. I remember how they talked about how sound was important to them in the making of this game. They really nailed the sound part. Not so sure how the experience would be on 2 channels. But on my 5 surrounds sound, it really scared the cr4p out of me! definitely a game to play after watching the ring or saw lol I really recommend it!
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.
