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 events. The best part about this 3rd person shooter is that it really makes you conserve your ammo and you realize how hard it is to come by. The upgrades you can perform on your life suit you wear is the best feature in the game, wherein you collect power nodes and trade it for upgrades on your suit and weapons. The dark eerie corridors of a doomed ship and gravitational forces add a nice speck to this game.
I spent approximately 18 to 20 hours finishing this game. The end result is satisfying and leaves space for the next installment to carry on the franchise. The weapon choice is as great as the varied number of enemies you fight and the difficulty level they possess. The only complaint about this game would be that the game is way too linear and after a while the level designs seem a bit repetitive. But that is masked by the gorgeous shooter that this game is and it revives the feeling of the Doom 3 days, which for me is mind blowing. I always had a soft corner for this stand alone straight up shooters without much character interactions.
