Product Description

Platform: PlayStation3 | Edition: Standard

Product Description

Electronic Arts guarantees a happy Halloween for survival horror fans with the release of this terrifying, deeply personal thriller. Developed as a single-player game, Dead Space delivers the chilling, claustrophobic feeling of being isolated in a dark environment -- all the while being stalked by some truly horrific enemies!

Set in the far future, Earth's appetite for natural resources has become a major motivator for deep space exploration. Immense, privately-owned and operated mining ships called "planetcrackers" orbit planets and use sophisticated equipment to carve out entire city-sized chunks of rock, reducing them to component elements and raw ore. When communications go dead on-board the USG Ishimura, a famous planetcracker -- systems engineer Isaac Clarke -- is sent in to fix the problem. Once on-board the vessel, Isaac discovers that the crew has unearthed an ancient and malevolent alien presence far beneath the planet's surface and brought it on-board. Weaponless, alone and terrified, this lone engineer is burdened with much more than simple survival -- he must seal the alien horror back into the dark rock.

  • Experience the rush of this terrifying, deeply personal thriller game
  • Investigate lost signal and repair all necessary equipment in order to restore communications
  • Explore distant future onboard the USG Ishimura
  • Simulates claustrophobic feeling of being isolated in dark environment
  • Developed as a single-player game

Manufacturer's Description

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Survival Horror at its finest! 28 Oct. 2008
Platform for Display:PlayStation3|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
What a sleeper hit Dead Space has become! And rightly so. It has to be one of the scariest games I have ever played along with some amazing graphics and gorgeous lighting. Not only that but I do have to comment on just how silky smooth this game looks and runs on the PS3. I haven't encountered one bug through the entire game and the level of detail that has gone into making the USG Ishimura appear real and authentic is quite something.

As you enter the USG Ishimura you get a sort of Bioshock feel with voices from loud speakers announcing that you have arrived and numerous advertisements on the walls stand out at you. You really feel that the ship is real and the surfaces of the floor and walls and particularly glass are some of the best looking I have seen all combined with fantastic lighting.

Instantly you feel on edge and you know that around every corner something may be waiting to jump out at you, or not. That is what Dead Space does so great, it's never predictable and will tease you with eerie sounds and distant screams to make you feel uncomfortable to proceed forward. This game can really make you jump many times, the sound effects are brilliant and the enemies so gruesome and evil looking.

Use of weapons in Dead Space is one of my favourite features. These weapons, although very useful, aren't your standard rifle and shotgun business, these are tools/items cleverly crafted to become lethal objects. My favourite has to be the Ripper, a magnetic razor sharp blade that takes limbs off in a way that leaves you feeling more than satisfied.

5.0 out of 5 stars Survival Horror at its absolute BEST!! 25 Oct. 2008
Platform for Display:PlayStation3|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The premise of Dead Space might seem, to some, very cliched. Big spaceship, overrun with aliens and lots of gore. Aliens, Event Horizon, Doom, etc, etc, all spring to mind when trying to explain the game.
But you'd be wrong to think this was anything else but brilliance!
This game has taken the best of the hard sci-fi horror genre and crafted it into a astonishing piece of technical mastery. Its that good.

The setting for Dead Space is a large mining ship names the USG ISHIMURA, you play as Isaac Clarke, a miner, who whilst arriving onboard realises that something is terrilbly wrong, as the vessel is crawling [quite literally] with beings known as Necromorphs. These half-alien/half-human hybrids literally want to suck the flesh off of your skull.

GRAPHICS-
After playing this on a 32" HDTV I can honestly say its one of the finest looking games I've played. It even rivals Metal Gear Solid 4 and Uncharted: Drake's Fortune in terms of sharpness and graphical detail. The lighting effects are spot on and the gore is freakishly realistic. The USG ISHIMURA feels incredibly claustrophobic as shadows of Necromorphs flicker and dart around you. The Necromorphs themselves are severely mutatated and animated superbly and disturbingly, as you blast a leg off, and it continues scuttling towards you! OVERALL 10/10

GAMEPLAY-
The 3rd person perspective works very well and the camera is surprisingly responsive. The games core mechanic is fright and dismemberment which work brilliantly. Quite often strategically shooting a certain limb after the Necromorph has jumped out at you, scaring you half to death, is very rewarding, especially playing on the harder difficulty setting. The weapons are balanced and no one weapon has a distinct advantage over the other.

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this game based upon the Amazon reviews and was expecting and outer space horror adventure a la RE1-3. Instead what I got is the most brutal, gory, bloody slasher-game I have ever seen on any console. The theme of 'Event Horizon' vs. 'Aliens' does hit the nail on the head.

Yes, there are the Resident Evil's, Silent Hill's and Obscure's of the world, but Dead Space is breaking new grounds in providing sheer brutal mayhem and massacre fear to its players. The sound effects and visuals are massively impressive and send a shiver down your spine every 10 seconds - I must admit that there are points where even I had a sick feeling in my stomach, especially when I had to mutilate corpses by stomping them to slush-puppy mush.

I am amazed and appalled at the same time that games like these are being made, are being released and are available for anyone to buy. Maybe Europe needs to adapt the American NC-17 rating for extreme brutal games like these - I would not advocate to stop making them, because someone, somewhere will always push the envelope and create something else that is this shocking. However, for parents it would be easier to identify what my kids should and should not play and with Dead Space, no one under 18 should have access to this game - period!

4.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Terrifying! 11 Mar. 2009
Platform for Display:PlayStation3|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I picked up Dead Space after having read some of the reviews. I was pleased to get it home, with my younger brother in toe, and give it a go.

We sat down with the volume up, the lights off and only the pause button for refuge; my God, what a heart-stopper!

During the first ten minutes or so, it becomes very apparent that a lot of effort has gone into this game. The graphics and most importantly, the atmosphere, has been very well thought-out and are technically superb.

Once you get into the swing of things, you're really in for a terrifying roller-coaster!

As the story progresses, you begin to learn how the enemy operates, and thanks to the objectives menu and path-finder ability, you'll never be stuck. But with the thrills and spills occurring on that first night in front of the telly, we won't be forgetting this gore-fest in a hurry!

TIP: It's up to you to really get the most out of this game. Turn the lights off, the sound up, and wii-fit will never be able to match that pulse-rate!
