Product Details:

12th Annual Interactive Achievement Awards Winner: Outstanding Achievement in Sound Design and Action Game of the Year. When an immense mining ship, the USG Ishimura, comes into contact with a mysterious alien artifact in a remote star system, its communications with Earth are mysteriously cut off. Engineer Isaac Clarke is sent to repair the Ishimura's communications array, but he arrives to find a living nightmare - the ship is a floating bloodbath, the crew unspeakably mutilated and infected by an ancient alien scourge. Clarke's repair mission becomes one of survival as he fights not just to save himself, but to return the artifact to the planet ... at any cost.

Key Features:

  • Strategic dismemberment - Shear off limbs with powerful weapons as you carve a bloody path through the alien hordes. Find ways to neutralize attacking enemies effectively or they'll keep coming at you. When ammo runs low, use telekinesis to pick up objects - even the enemies' own arms and legs! - and fire them at anything that stands in your way.
  • Terror in the far reaches of space - A blood-curdling interactive horror experience features state-of-the art graphics and effects, a panic-inducing audio system, and a truly frightening atmosphere of death and despair.
  • Real Zero G - Battle relentless enemies and crack challenging puzzles in unprecedented zero-gravity environments that reinvent survival horror.
  • Uncover the horrific truth - Cut through the harrowing mystery to stop the alien onslaught. Discover the tragic story of the Ishimura's downfall through the final, frantic logs of the ship's hideously transformed crew.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A "Real" Gamer's Must Have.... If you are a casual gamer, move along; nothing to see here.... If you consider yourself a "gamer" and, for some reason or another, have NOT played Dead Space--then this is for you. Get it. Play it. Enjoy it. Is it the absolute best survival horror game ever made? Definitely NOT. But, it IS amazing. The Dead Space trilogy are 3 games that true gamers must own. Just like the Mass Effect trilogy. And the Crysis trilogy. And the Bios Shock trilogy. The games that started these trilogies are dated to be sure (compared to more modern releases) but, they are classics. Don't deny yourself some enjoyment, get this game.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Re:My Review Let me say here that I've been a Gamer for years, however, I don't jump on the band wagon and buy/play what everyone else is playing, b/c everyone else is playing it(case in point, the call of duty series). Anyways, even though this game is from 2008, I finally decided to buy this. Let me say that this game is one of the best I have played. If you are looking for an all around action thriller that at times will make you jump, then try this, you won't be disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sound Skipping Repair If you downloaded this game like me & are having problems with what seems like the sound skipping & causing the game to lag no worries i'll tell you how i fixed mine on Win XP. First close your game completey, then click on start then R-click "My Computer", Click on properties, Then Harware, Then Device Manager, Then you will see all the +signs look for the + Sound, video & game controllers click on it, Then go down the list & look for (Unimodem Half-Duplex Audio Device) Right click it & disable it (dont uninstall cause the system will reinstall everytime you reboot) and thats it . comment back & let me know if it helped ya!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but LOOOOONNGGG Load times This is a great game fun i like the 3rd person and it will scare you if you play alone at night. graphics are great for 2008 game there no skyrim or oblivion but there alot more advanced then doom or quake 4 shiny skin ppl. tons of gore. I recomend that its 18+ for this game any one younger might become a scaredy cry babby with nightmares. Now to the bad LONG very long load times may take 1-2 mins to respawn after a death and 2-3 mins for level change. it wouldent be bad if there werent so many do it 100% right or die or oops sliped and killed your self oops ran in to antigrav trap so many respawns spend more time in loading then in game. i can load oblivion saves and respawns in seconds on my pc and other high graphic games like l4d and hlf 2 in 10s of seconds. this is for some one with a very good pc or your be waiting all the time respawning

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best survival horror game since Silent Hill I know I'm late playing this game, but I wanted to do it before I get Dead Space 2. First off I'm playing on the pc with an Xbox controller, pumping it out to my tv in full 1080p glory. Graphics all on high and the game plays flawlessly. The story is pretty good, the sound is superb. Graphics are also top notch. There were definitely times when I jumped out of my skin because the timing was just perfect. I would definitely recommend this game to any one who likes the genre, or any one tired of the easy run and gun style of the COD's out there.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from BEWARE: horrifying horror This game is a really eerie thing. Wherever Isak goes and whatever he does there's a beast waiting for him in an ambush. Top-notch visuals recreate gloomy atmosphere of the abandoned spaceship and sinister sounds remind us that there's some form of life present onboard. Odd mouse control could be easily "healed" by turning off Vsync while it'd take some time to get used to the game's camera view. Different levels provide various environments but the fighting itself is almost always about two things – freeze and kill. Upgrade system adds depth to gameplay and replay value of Dead Space. The story is a bit tedious and the number of "specialties" to kill on the menu is rather limited, though. Despite some minor flaws the game looks polished and makes good impression – look forward to playing its sequel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Survival Horror Lives on! If your looking for an excellent survival horror game and are sick of all the shooters.... Than this is the game for you. I was blown away on how you can have the graphics pumped all the way up and still have this game perform well. All of the graphics are crisp and won't dissappoint some of the most picky. The sound in the game is absolutely fantastic from the crunch of the alien body parts to the depth of the gun fire all the way back to those creepy little wispers that came up here and there which show up beautifully with any sound system. I was extremely pleased to see that ammo was not hard to come by like most games which gives you the ability to blow your enemies away and smile about it and not worry about if you'll have enough ammo to kill the rest. The controls however took a bit to get used to and I was a bit dissapointed to see that the movement keys could not be modified to the arrow buttons and this could take some tjme to get used to. I was frustrated for about a day but once you get the hang, you won't take this CD out of your drive until you finish. I won't ruin any endings, but I hope they continue this story becasue it has great potential and could go further and go well.
