5.0 out of 5 stars Intense and Scary! 27 May 2011
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Bought this game as it had gone down in price and what a bargain! Ok so the game is very linear and you pretty much just follow the route you are given (which is literally marked on the floor when you press a certain button) but the fun comes from trying to stay alive and not mess up your pants in the process!

The graphics are excellent and gameplay is smooth. Unusually for a game of this genre you have a third person perspective directly behind the player but I quickly got used to it and has the advantage of being able to see if a monster is attacking you from behind.

The monsters are very creative and grotesque and to kill them you have to shoot their limbs off which is nice.

I was constantly on edge playing this game because at any moment some creature could jump out of vent or appear from the darkness and I lost count of the amount of times I jumped in this game!

Fantastic game and I will definitely be getting the second installment in the near future.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate Alien/Space Sci-Fi Game 7 Feb. 2012
By JezB
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Really sad to see some of the disappointing ratings for this title on here as for me this is the best game I've ever played, and the nearest thing you'll ever find to playing the film Alien on a PC.

I've got an above average spec system and managed to max out all setting in super smooth 1920 x 1080. The graphics detail of the ship is excellent, and the level design completes the feeling of isolation in space as you travel up and down the tram system, completing objectives and trying to work out what's happened.

The beauty of this game is that you have plenty of time to take in the current scenery, soaking up the atmosphere, and then go for the big shoot-out when you feel ready for it. Every new task is a reward of ticking off the classic sci-fi scene checklist. From Bio Lab to Hydroponics bay it references a number of great films and is brilliant eye candy.

The real stand out feature for me is the health & comm's display built into your man's suit. I especially like the holographic video pop-ups when your companions are contacting you.. it hits all my sci-fi geek buttons. The voice acting is also believable and extremely atmospheric.

The game is really terrifying with the amusingly gruesome deaths, viscously mutated monsters, and the fading in psycho style music preparing you for another slasher moment.

For the few pounds on here it's a 2012 bargain.

3.0 out of 5 stars Dead frustrating 8 April 2012
By sft
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Okay, let's get the bad out of the way first. The controls for the PC version of this otherwise good game are the worst I have ever encountered. I won't go into detail but they're so awkward they almost spoiled the game for me. Almost. (There are also some truly annoying problems with camera and viewpoint angles, but don't get me started on that!) But what about the good? DEAD SPACE succeeds, despite the aforementioned problems, mainly because it oozes atmosphere. This is a very claustrophobic game that sucks you in and really does induce anxiety. You will jump many times, trust me. The story is okay, within the usual limitations of such games, the voice acting is uniformly convincing, and the graphics are good but not outstanding. Where this game excels is in the way it draws you in; immerses you in it's dark atmosphere. This is a game that makes your palms sweat, which is exactly what it's supposed to do.

1.0 out of 5 stars DEAD ON REENTRY... 21 Oct. 2008
By NeuroSplicer TOP 500 REVIEWER
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
When EA keeps giving birth to such beautiful stillborn babies (killed by the decision to bundle another infamous SecuROM 7+/LIMITED ACTIVATIONS scheme), one can only ask: WHAT HAVE ITS EXECUTIVES BEEN SMOKING?!

MASS EFFECT can be found in clearance bins only months after its release; SPORE undersold miserably; EA's stock was hit hard because of these failures (way BEFORE the market dive) - and yet, no one seems to be awake at the helm.
By insisting on slipping in such problematic and hated DRM scheme in DEAD SPACE (and RED ALERT 3 in a week), EA proves in how little respect it holds its own customers. Of course, calling "pirates and petulant children" the 3,100 Amazon reviewers that rated with 1-star the, similarly plagued, SPORE should have been an early hint.

SecuROM 7+ has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH FIGHTING PIRACY. Proof: both MASS EFFECT and SPORE (as with BIOSHOCK last year) were pirated hours within (if not...before) their release - and if I can find this by simply Googling it, so can anyone.... I would bet dollars to donuts that EA is well aware of this - yet keeps bundling SecuROM 7+ although it severely hurts its sales! Ever wonder why?

SecuROM has always been more about data-mining and reporting back to its occasional mothership than...fighting piracy. That is why even FREE demos contain SecuROM. And that is why completely uninstalling a game plagued with SecuROM will NOT remove SecuROM - which will keep playing havoc with your system.

Lately, these security concerns have been accentuated as known Trojans seem to be exploiting SecuROM's backdoor access for their own purposes. In effect, installing a SecuROM-infected game in our computer will be placing your hardware and data at risk long after having uninstalled the game.
