Introduction: This game is not difficult, this games fails at being scary completely, this game has the most basic and somewhat annoying predictable mission objectives, this game has almost no in-game story, it just like Final Fantasy 7 had all of the story in the back story, this game, despite all of what I just said which is all 100% completely true, is still a great game.br /
br /
The game plays extremely well, somewhat like Resident Evil 4 with the way the guns handle and the over-the-shoulder camera, speaking of the guns, some of them (the Ripper) are so un-realistic and even funny to look at at first glance it just makes those guns all the better.br /
br /
By “predictable mission objectives” I mean that you’ll get a mission like “go here and get the key to unlock the room to do the thing with the other thing” will turn into something like “go here move the thing with the other thing that you need to go find to get the key to go into the hallway before the room you need to unlock as the hallway collapses so go get the other thing to unlock the other door which leads to the alternate route to the first door blah blah annoying System Shock 2 bull” and this game does feel similar to System Shock 2, at least it’s not a complete rippoff with no differences what-so-ever other than name changes like one game I know of *cough* Bioshock *cough*br /
br /
Excuse me, ahem, the bosses are few and far between (three in the whole game few) and other than the final boss which is still incredibly easy are all pretty poorly done, the only thing that saves the final boss is the fact of how epic it is, (seriously, search a video of it on Youtube or something, go, now, now, do it) the main character (Isaac Clarke, I see what you did there EA), the one the player is playing as, never speaks, never shows any emotion at all other than one very short part where he sees his girlfriend dying, and even then he basically just hunches over for a second or two facepalming, because of this Isaac is completely unrelated in the slightest, which makes it seem like you are playing as a robot.br /
br /
Unless you know the back story (which you could watch the movie for Dead Space: Downfall) it seems like there is no story at all. The game while is not scary in any sense of the word does have a great atmosphere, which is only improved by the graphics and lighting effects of the game ( Oohh , don’t worry, I’ll get to those).br /
br /
It seems like every Sci-Fi shooter that just happens to take place in outer space, which is the most likely place for anything Sci-Fi to take place, is called a System Shock 2 ripoff or at least compared to SS2, which is in my opinion BS , this game other than those mission objectives really is not like SS2 in the least (other than the setting, of course), because I do indeed think it’s bull . I will not compare it to SS2 other than one time (mission objectives).br /
br /
Glitches: Only one known, very rarely (unless you are trying to make it happen) a body part of a dead enemy will become stuck on Isaac.br /
br /
Endings: The ending to this game, somewhat like RE4 is utter crap, nothing more to say.br /
br /
Graphics: Once again, as said in my Silent Hill 5 review, I don’t usually talk about graphics but some things need to be said about Dead Space’s graphics: The lighting effects are amazing, the way things float (including blood) around in zero gravity areas are done extremely well, the lip-syncing is also done extremely well, overall the graphics are some of the best seen in a (non-racing *cough* Gran Turismo * cough*) game to date.br /
br /
I’ve said a lot of bad things about Dead Space in this review but it’s still a great game, the graphics are amazing, the gameplay is great , if you just sort of block out the actual mission objectives and stop questioning them (though no one should ever have to do this with any game) and just enjoy the ride, you’ll have a bit more fun, I’d say give this game a buy, yeah buy it, it’s a great game (no sarcasm). I’d really like to see a Dead Space 2, and I guarantee anyone else that plays this game will too.br /
