Important note: Dead Space is for mature audiences. Expect jump-scares, hallucinations, gruesome enemies, gore, and...well, cutting off the limbs of said enemies.

The game follows Vandal, a separate character from the main Dead Space games on consoles. He's an engineer who is sent in to make some simple repairs. The scenario quickly escalates after the repairs are complete when he discovers he has been essentially left for dead to an invasion of necromorphs: gruesome, mutated, zombie-looking monstrosities that are endlessly hungry for humans. The game is about Vandal's struggle to escape the necromorphs while battling his own sanity.

I was both surprised and impressed by just how easy it was to play. The left thumb handles movement (basically forward if it's on top of the screen, backward if it's on the bottom) while the right thumb handles the aiming of weapons and abilities (slide right to aim right, left to aim left, etc, tap to fire). The game is fully rendered in 3D and runs smooth like butter. Occasionally, it can be unresponsive with taps to pick up items or open doors, but I've never felt the controls have hindered me in keeping my character alive. Battles are all about stopping necromorphs from ripping you apart by ripping them apart first. The only effective way to kill a necromorph is to shoot (or cut, depending on your weapon) its limbs off piece by piece until it's dead. Anyone familiar with Dead Space or Resident Evil will feel right at home. The dismemberment mechanic adds real intensity to fights by forcing you to aim carefully but quickly as danger approaches.

For me, this game felt like an absolute steal on sale at $0.99, but I would be just as satisfied paying the full $6.99 for it.

the graphics are amazing! the sound may be low but it is very high qualitiy. as well as the graphics and gameplay! everything is good. great storyline as well. it may take one or two taps to activate something. but you really just have to tap it at the right angle and spot. the controlls are easy to master after a while as well. dont know how to save yet though. i really dont know why it was so cheap for such a great game! yes the consol dead space is better, but if your on a road trip and your not the one driving, or just when you dont want to play a consol,or going to play it in the bed before going to sleep. so this game is awesome. 5/5 stars for sure!

After I went through the somewhat tedious process of downloading it, I had absolutely no regrets of buying this app. Definately worth seven bucks!!! Not only does it have great, immersive gameplay, but it also has some of the best graphics I've ever seen on an Android device. Another thing I love about it is that you can create multiple games at one time, just like the console version!

Probably one of the best apps out there on the android market. Realistic lighting affects, great 3D graphics, and great audio. It has really good gameplay, and how very few cons and tons of pros. There are only 2 issues I have with this app. The first is that when sometimes launching the app, towing start, so I have to restart it. And I hope EA reads these, because unlike the iPhone, iPod, and everything else has an awesome update. There is the nightmare mode, and being a fan of the game, would love to have that. Also, there is not the survival mode, which would male the game played more if campaign was getting boring. Finally, the game doesn't' have the Heavy Pulse Rifle, a weapon I would very much like to see. Now, enough with the baddies. Good: like I said,graphics, audio, lighting. There are also good scares (especially at the beginning).This game also plays into the second dead space, so if you played it, You might know some spoilers.
Anyway, I hope this helps. Please, please update the app. Still really good though.

alright, when I first saw this I was like how is this going to work but once I started to play it was like a console game(perticilary ps2) I've played the original version on the ps3 and let me tell you this game scared the poop out of me! well first off I just want to say that these are probably the best graphics I have seen on the kindle fire. the textures,lighting,and sound are perfect. and the controls are perfect.they took the capabilities of the kindle fire to the extreme. and lastly I want to say is that this game is a perfect challenge. sincerely, cole

I already have this game iOS and a huge fan of the dead space universe. I figured I would try it out on my kindle fire. I was pleasantly surprised. Graphichs are great, controls work. I would just expect, scratch that; demand that EA optimizes their games for the Fire. You dont have a fragmented market like other android devices, you know what the specs are, my fire is the same as the other...so please work with Amazon and continue to release games like this.

ran without any problems on my kindle fire. picking up ammo and opening lockers is a pain as sometimes the weapon is fired.

gameplay is smooth and fun, creepy also. those of you complaining need to not use your fire as a porn station and learn to close all your apps properly. paid 99¢ well worth the price.

This game is a must buy. It does have many problems, all pretty much control based. The controls are buggy, and you waste precious ammo because of these bugs. Other than these problems the game is amazing to play. The audio and video are very detailed, between a modrern console and last gen console. You will not be disappointed spending only $1 on this game.

A note to Amazon and Electronic Arts, please update this game, the aneroid market has a newer version than the one here.
