Excerpt: Prepare yourself for one of the most terrifying videogame experiences you'll ever encounter, if not the scariest ever. From the creative details scattered liberally around the levels, such as blood-scrawled notes and tossed-aside luggage, to the intense sound effects and sparse but effective music, Dead Space literally oozes style. I haven't been so impressed by a game's presentation in a very long time.
Excerpt: EA has decided to buck the trend this year; a company so used to spewing out sequels is now concentrating on starting new franchises, and EA Redwood Shores latest, Dead Space , has all the ingredients to become another big hit. With an animated comic book and animated movie already released, the markers have been firmly set; now it’s time for the game to deliver. So far, it’s on the right track.
Excerpt: After the let down that was Silent Hill: Homecoming, I was on the lookout for a game to fill both the depressing void in my soul and the number of days I had set aside to devote to a total horror survival experience. At first, I thought my options were limited to the PS3 release of Bioshock (more on that at a later date, I suspect), but when I started hearing about Dead Space, the suspicion that my title had been found started to emerge.
Excerpt: Name: Dead Space Genre: Survival Horror Platform: Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC (Reviewed on Xbox 360) Watch the video review. Dead Space is a bold game, through and through. It launched against high-profile sequels in an already busy holiday season, and prides itself on frights, even though the Survival Horror genre has grown tired over the years.
Summary: EA's Dead Space goes under the knife at Games Xtreme and we discover if this 3rd person Survival Horror game set aboard the deep-space planetcracker: Ishimura, is all that it's cracked up to be.
Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is Each genre of games has a crowned king to be reckoned with. For Survival-Horror games the king is without a doubt the Resident Evil series from Capcom with the acclaimed and praised fourth installment as the latest and the fifth edition in the final stages of completion (scheduled for 2009) as the next title. But every king has one thing to fear on mind: dethroning.
