    mmakows2's Dead Space (PS3)

    [September 9, 2012 09:17:47 PM]
    On January 1,  2011, it was my birthday and in the same day I was introduced to Dead Space. During that time (last year, I know), I was familiarized with the Resident Evil and the Silent Hill series. However, I did not know how I missed Dead Space. Therefore I will proceed to say that Dead Space flat out is a fantastic game. It is the only game series to this very day that still scares the crap out of me. My reason for concluding this is because of Dead Space's basic elements: terrifying ambiance, horrific monsters, an engaging story, and it's basic gameplay. The whole notion of Dead Space is to create an atmosphere of hopeless and isolation. Therefore, you play as an engineer, Isaac Clarke, whom is sent to a space mining vessel, the USG Ishimura, with a team to repair a communications black out on board of the vessel. However, the mission does not become what it all cracks up to be, instead you are fighting to survive and trying to find a way to get the hell out! Pretty basic stuff, right? Wrong. Oh so wrong. There is more then meets the eye. Not only are you fighting the horrific alien specimen that has taken over the USG Ishimura, but you are fighting with other survivors, your repair team, and an archaic religion that worships fanatically over an alien artifact that may have caused all these horrific situations! Other than the story, the soundtrack of the game also amps up the experience. The soundtrack develops with the environment and the encounters you face on board the Ishimura, therefore, making the ambiance in the game tense and stressful. However, the soundtrack isn't the only thing that makes this game frightening. It's the environment itself! You're in a space ship that is over 60 years old and it's in disarray. You have blood everywhere, bodies strewed all over the corridors and rooms, organic materials scaling the walls, monsters in the vents, and frantic messages scribbled on the wall with blood. It's extremely horrifying and fills your every cell with dread. Aside from the basics, the gameplay is relatively simple. You shoot weapons, stomp, and hit. However, you can upgrade your weapons, your RIG (contains your armor, health, oxygen counter, and archives), kinesics module, and status module. The controls are fairly simple, therefore, allowing the player to become accustom to them very fast. I can rant and rave about this game all day. I can admit with much pride that I have all the video games ( the iOS version as well), novels, comic books, and movies. I even have the Twinkle Twinkle Little Star (Dead Space Version) song as my ringtone! Anyways, if you enjoy a good scare, a great soundtrack, and an engaging gameplay. Play this game!
