DaveOK, let´s start this review with a quick question: What is the first thing that comes to mind when you read the words 'Survival Horror'? I'm willing to bet it is either of these: Silent Hill or Resident Evil. The truth is, whilst a...

What has our Dead Space performance analysis taught us? First, Dead Space is heavily dependent on the graphics system, while CPU performance is less important. Even a dual-core CPU at 1.6 GHz should be more than the game needs to perform admirably,...

Dead Space was released at the end of last year, and while it got fairly positive reviews, it kind of slipped under our radar. I’m the type of gamer who enjoys a good first-person shooter (FPS) or role-playing game (RPG) with a decent story....

Dead Space does a great job with fully immersing a player into its world. Instead of a heads up display cluttering up your screen everything you need is integrated into the gameplay. For instance, instead of a “health bar” players can...

While sci-fi survival horror shooter theater is not a new concept in videogames, EA's Dead Space at least has the decency to do the hybrid genre proud. And while its "story" isn't about to win any Hugo awards, it nonetheless offers a weighty...

Dead Space is an outstanding experience; it takes ideas from many games and puts them together with great implementation and polish. Dead Space is close to Doom 3 and Bioshock mixed together, but it draws more inspiration from many games. You play as...

An excellent new addition to the splinter group of action games centered around horror. I suspect they will make a sequel and I suspect it too will spawn a franchise. Dead Space gets it right when it comes to the...

While it won’t win any prizes for originality, Dead Space sets a new standard for survival horror games. Although it borrows heavily from ‘Alien’ and ‘The Thing’, its intense gameplay, while not for the faint of heart or...

Dead Space has given the survival horror genre the gut-churning spike in the ribs its been needing for the past few years, with new methods of monster-mashing, a compelling story and intelligent gameplay. EA - Dead Space price Buy Dead Space...

So, is Dead Space worth the price of admission? Well it is, although it never quite achieves the heights attained by BioShock in terms of ­gameplay and story. That’s not to say that it’s not an enjoyable ride, because it is a fun game to...

Dead Space is the kind of game you’re going to either love or hate, and while it might seem I was a bit hard on it, I do like it quite a bit, but I also like b horror movies as well, and most anything sci-fi, so it works well for me. It is a bit...

Drawing heavily on a multitude of science-fiction and horror themes, Dead Space might initially seem a bit formulaic, but rest assured that by the end of this roughly 15-hour saga of terror, youll be left a blubbering mess huddling with your...

Dead Space is the first game that can truly be called post-BioShock. You’re an inexplicably mute character on a dark, claustrophobic spaceship dripping with spooky atmosphere, taking instructions from people who may or may not be playing you. But...

Florian Dead Space ist ein klasse Spiel. Der Sound passt, die Grafik ist herrlich, die Atmosphäre stimmt. Isaac ist zwar nicht der typische Held, aber gerade das lässt den Spieler schnell in seinen Raumanzug schlüpfen.Die Waffen sind mal...
