Product Description

Platform: PlayStation3 | Edition: Standard

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.

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

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.

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 Bloody Good! 1 Jan 2009
Platform for Display:PlayStation3|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I couldn't have asked for a better survival horror game than this! I find the latest games have been less fun, maybe too serious, not since Bioshock and Resident Evil 4 have i enjoyed gaming as much as this. Granted survival horror is my type of thing, but i consider this as good as both of those and thats saying a lot.

The gameplay is great, i didn't find it repetitive or easy, the tools (weapons) are solid, and i particularly enjoyed stasis, kineses and the zero-gravity zones are very well done. There's a lot of "jump" moments and times where you don't want to enter a room. Not since the older residents evils have i had that problem, that was when i was 12ish, now i'm 20 and it takes a lot more to do that! The monsters are great, much more variety than i was expecting, and the bosses are big. But the best thing about it is the story. It really is film worthy. And i actually enjoyed Downfall, the poorly animated movie released just before the game, about events before the crew of Kellion reach USG Ishimura, because of the story.

I really look forward to the next game/s to follow on, as there are questions to be answered, especially after the last moment of the game.

5.0 out of 5 stars A masterclass in atmospheric gaming 20 Nov 2008
By John Clayton III VINE VOICE
Platform for Display:PlayStation3|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Wow, where did this come from?

After not really knowing too much about Dead Space, I picked it up on a whim with Far Cry 2, and boy oh boy... what an amazing surprise it turned out to be.

Providing what is without doubt the most atmospheric gaming experience I have ever had, Dead Space plays like a combination of the movies Aliens, Event Horizon and The Thing as you navigate a devastated space craft trying to find out what happened to the crew. You'll be in genuine terror at times as you desperately fight to survive some horrifying looking creatures and some masterful set pieces that make this one of the year's best new games.

It looks stunning to boot, with detailed, smooth visuals that perfectly create the right atmosphere with moody lighting effects and large scale areas coupled with some really impressive 'space walking' sequences and a genuinely haunting score/soundtrack combined with brilliant voice acting and a superior plot make this one big scary pot of awesome.

I cannot recommend Dead Space highly enough. If you like survival horror, you will not do better. Buy it.
