Did You Know?


This game was reportedly banned in China and Japan because of the game's excessive gory violence involving, several dismemberments that the player character can perform on the enemies. However, it has since been confirmed that this was a marketing ploy, and that the game was not banned in any country. See more »


Whenever the player immolates a Necromorph with the flamethrower, the creature will be set ablaze, but will suddenly become dismembered rather then get charred and dehydrated. See more »

A chillingly enthralling game
22 February 2009 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

Dead Space is a recommended game for all lovers of survival horror and sci-fi. It has a very inventive campaign featuring extraterrestrial infections called Necromorphs and your job in the game is to wipe the out from ships in space.

Good - Well, Dead Space gives me the creeps sometimes; it's not only the dark environment or the suspensive music that grips me, it's just the knowledge that behind every door or across every corner there can be a monstrous beast ready to maul you to death. The very idea of an alien source transforming humans into these Necromorphs is quite a classic but interesting one. I think the suspense and horror action of Dead Space is just what gives it the 9/10 stars it deserves.

Bad - Not enough action in my point of view. Not that I'd like more action in a survival game such as Dead Space, but the Necromorphs encounters are scarce compared to the amount of time scouring each section of the ship. There's also no Multiplayer, no matches to decide the better player, and no co-op to comfort each player with the fact that a trusty teammate is beside them. Dead Space is a stand-alone, after all.

9/10 stars: Very good campaign, no multiplayer
