    mmakows2's Dead Space (iPd)

    [November 6, 2012 08:07:36 PM]
    As a huge fan of Dead Space, I was slightly hesitant to play a mobile version of the game. However, after several playthroughs, I have decided that the mobile version of the highly appraised series lives up to high expectations. As originally thought, I felt the game was going to be a re-hash of the console game Dead Space. But, I was pleasantly surprise that it came with its own storyline. In the game, you play as Vandal. Vandal is being instructed by the Church of Unitology to fix some equipment on the Sprawl. However, Vandal has unknowingly disabled the Sprawl’s security measures and started the Necromorph infestation on the space station. Through the story, Vandal has realized the Church’s manipulative behavior and attempts to fix the damage he/she has caused. Since Dead Space was highly venerated as a successful survival-horror game, horror elements must be included. The iOS version incorporates dark tunnels, claustrophobic encounters, horrific monsters, and maddening hallucinations to hone in the Dead Space atmosphere. Every chapter allows the player to be challenged and weary of the further developments in the story. However, there are some aspects of the game that are extremely frustrating. The common complaint I have heard and experienced in the game is the controls. Using a touch screen to dissemble necromorphic flesh is frustrating. In order to successfully kill an enemy, you must be very direct and precise. To correspond to the previous statement, Vandal is frustrating to move as well. I cannot express how many times I have fired my weapon while attempting to open a door. However, after a few stumbles, you are able to overcome this glaring error and continue with the gameplay. To be concise, the main purpose of buying this game would be the story. The story is completely original and fills in the gaps between Dead Space and Dead Space 2. If you appreciate a good story or good series overall, then I highly recommend that you check out the game.
