Game Overview

Log Covered The buggered PC controls pretty extensively In his review, so just accept that I'm playing Dead Space with a 360 pad and we'll all be much happier.

I love horror games and in particular the System Shock series, so when I heard rumours EA were making a horror game in a seemingly-abandoned huge space ship a bit of wee came out Fortunately for my laundry bill it turned out to be the original Dead Space instead of SS3.

'Original' may be pushing it a tad, as EA Redwood have pinched from pretty much every horror movie and videogame ever made. Still, they've managed to craft an atmospheric and involving game nonetheless, with a few unique notions to make it all worthwhile. The necessary dismemberments ramp up the skill, the fun, and the gore all at once, while the holographic inventory system is nothing short of inspired. The zero-G bits are great too, with the soundless vacuum hops bringing the game's only genuinely scary moments.

Now we've hit on the one area (besides the crap mouse/keyboard controls of course) where Dead Space really falls down, despite all the developer's best attempts, is that it's very rarely scary. There's tension and gore, but the attacks are telegraphed so far in advance that a message might as well pop up saying: 'Please wait, your monster is coming'.

It would've been better with a first-person perspective. There, I said it.
