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.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Actual Review 11 Nov 2008
By Amazon Customer TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
*DRM will not factor in my assessment of this game. For the record - I don't approve of the system, but I feel that the game is worth buying anyway.*

This is an action adventure game in the style of System Shock 2 and, more recently, Bioshock. In other words: it's an atmospheric adventure with a linear plot, a lot of shooting and some very light RPG character progression elements, which I will expand on later.

Premise:

The game's premise is hackneyed. You are a simple mechanic travelling on a support ship to investigate a huge mining ship that has ceased communications mysteriously. Sounds familiar? It is. In many ways this game is a tribute to the entire "In space, no one can hear you scream" subgenre - it borrows heavily storywise and thematically from films such as the Alien series, and Event Horizon. A sense of isolation and hopelessness is present throughout.

Plotting and structure:

As I mentioned, the plot is linear and tight. The pacing is carefully measured and the level design is well considered, with each area presenting a decent variety of different challenges and puzzles. The objectives you have to achieve are feasible in the contexts they are presented in, though occasionally it is obvious that the developers have added find and fetch goals that do little for the game but fill in time. There are numerous scripted events in the tradition of the games and films it was influenced by - creatures casting shadows round corners, crew members of the ship dying in various horrible ways, and environmental events such as explosions and fires.

Information about the situation on the ship is gradually revealed via video, text, and audio logs that crew members have conveniently left behind for you to pick up.

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.
