About

Dead Space is a third-person shooter with horror elements. Playing as Isaac Clarke, the systems engineer, players will be isolated on the spaceship USG Ishimura after the crew was slaughtered by mindless Necromorphs after the failed investigation of the distress signal. Now Isaac not only has to escape but uncover the dark secrets of Ishimura, while looking for the clues about the whereabouts of his girlfriend Nicole.
Dead Space accents the survival aspect of the game, by keeping minimal UI and keeping HUD on the armor, making sure that the players can see the corners of the screen. Only weapons Isaac has access to are his engineer tools, which can all be upgraded with the limited supplies. Dead Space introduces a new variant of zombies called Necromorphs, that are highly mobile and instead of aiming for the head, players will be asked to attack the limbs, in order to incapacitate and slow them down, eventually killing them.

I really liked this game a lot when it first came out. It's a balls to the wall action-horror game with genuinely unsettling psychological aspects. For the most part, it's not too scary since the horror is simply an endless barrage of meaty-creatures getting up in your face, but as an action game it's pretty great, even to this day.

Dead Space may very well be the prototype space horror game out there. It is a first-person-shooter first and foremost but tells a compelling story on it's way. The year is 2508. You are an engineer tasked to repair a mining starship stranded in space which has gone silent. As you board the ship, the story unfolds... As it happens, while mining, some ancient, dark, evil secret (think of 2001: A Space Odyssey paired with Event Horizon) was unearthed which infested the starship and now you have to fight your way through. So, an FPS in space. Boring, nothing new? Not so fast! The game excels in a number of points. Apart from the AI which is quite good and gives you a number of shocker moments you have to decide throughout the game how to spend your upgrades. You can upgrade your weapons or your armor - how much hitpoints you have or how long you can survive in outer space (your oxygen reserve). Upgrading your weapons is what really makes this game fun (and adds a lot to replayability). The weapons are completely diverse and upgrading them adds new functionality. You have to decide which weapons to upgrade in which way (you can always decide to upgrade clip size, reload time, output and if you upgrade to the end you get a bonus fire mode). This is one of the games you will want to play on the hardest mode again and again and test out if your choices were viable. To sum it up, the design team behind this game did their work. The upgrade system for your weapons (in an FPS) in Dead Space is easily the best you will find. I played through this twice just to test out different weapons. And if you like a good space horror story, this game is an easy bet. Also, this is one of the FPS where your choices and skills really matter. You will be eaten up alive if you approach this casually. If you put some thought into it you may go a long way :) Dead Space is one of those games I will always come back to every few years - just to see the story once more like in a good movie and because every playthrough is different (based on your upgrade choices).

While the sequel is considered the peak of the Dead Space series, there is something about the original which struck a chord with me. Heavy, atmospheric isolation in a unique sci-fi horror environment. Particularly innovative approach to UI design in this game. 
Una obra maestra que se mereceia mejor suerte como saga. Aun asi, siempre tendremos este juego de terror sin compromisos.
