Dead Space lands you in deep in outer space on a spaceship full of tentacle enhanced beings that ultimately want you dead.
Armed with an arsenal of weaponry and an impressive armoured spacesuit, its up to you to ensure that you prevail under rather unfavourable circumstances.
Whilst navigating the eerie corridors of your intergalactic vessel, you are tasked with surviving the horrors that have been housed with you in the space shuttle - the tentacle beings.
Dead Space is a visually appeasing title with rich detail from the ground up and encapsulates the ambience of a dread ridden spaceship with a wonderfully creepy score.
During your adventure you'll be tasked with drowning foes in bullets, fearing what's lurking around the next corner and solving a number of puzzles in order to progress through sections of the level.
As Third Person Shooters (TPS) go, Dead Space is one the best around and thanks to its unique surrounding, is a welcome change from some of the type cast titles that make up the TPS genre.
