Dead Space

Dead Space is a video game that combines the elements of third-person shooters and science fiction survival horror-action games. It was developed by the California-based EA Redwood Shores and was published by Electronic Arts. The game was released on October 2008 and has been made available not only for the Xbox 360 but for Microsoft Windows and the Sony Playstation 3 as well.

Deep Space is set in deep space sometime during the 26th century. There, players take on the role of a space engineer named Isaac Clarke. Clarke works for a company called the Concordance Extraction Corporation (CEC) which operates giant mining ships across the galaxy.

The story within the game unfolds when Isaac Clarke heads of to a space ship called the USG Ishimura thinking he was on a routine mission to repair what seemed like a mechanical failure. Upon arrival, he and his crew are attacked and they quickly learn that the ship’s crew had been taken over by the Corruption. The Corruption is a virus-like alien infestation that turns human beings into hostile alien creatures called “Necromorphs.” In order to stay alive and progress in the game, players must fight off these hostile creatures.

The Necromorphs in Dead Space do not die so easily and, often, multiple gunshot wounds would not be enough to finish one off. These Necromorphs can adopt new stances and tactics depending on how they are wounded. There are those that sprout new limbs when wounded while others give birth to new Necromorphs.

A head-up display (HUD) is not available for players in Dead Space. However, the game features holographic projections that display the information that players need. Items can be bought and sold at an in-game store.

Because the character is an engineer, the player has access to mostly non-traditional weapons. These include a plasma cutter, a hydrazine torch, and a force cannon that emits shock waves. However, a riple-barreled automatic military rifle is also available to the player.
