    A beautiful nightmare.

    Back in 2005 Resident Evil 4 changed the entire survival-horror genre and in its wake came other games that were influenced by it in some way. The most obvious of these inspirations is Dead Space, a lovingly crafted sur... Read Full Review

    In space, no one will hear you bleed, scream, cry and die.

    Everyone knows that in space, no one can hear you scream, at least according to the Alien franchise. Many game developers like this idea and borrowed a lot of their inspiration from the Alien franchise, such as Metroid a... Read Full Review

    Go to space they said, it will be fun they said...

    Dead space kind of creeps in on the Doom 3 like feel of closed spaces and monsters and enemies springing up on you in the dark. Dead space has you playing Isaac upon a ship that is doomed for mysterious and terrifying ev... Read Full Review

    Combine Resident Evil, The Thing, Doom, and a bit of Half Life 2 and you have Dead Space, one of the best horror games.

    (Note this review is intended to be as "spoiler free" as possible, since a good horror rpg relies on suspense and plot development to provide the best game play experience) When I first got this PC game as a Halloween... Read Full Review

    I almost missed out on a game which is exactly what i look for in a video game!

    Dead Space provided me with two days of utterly pure and intoxicating gameplay. What i mean by that is me, being nailed to the sofa with my eyes gazing at the deeply disturbing space and the secrets of Ishimura. I foll... Read Full Review
