Very Solid Horror Game,
This review is from: Dead Space (Video Game)
What can I say that hasn't been said already about the game? Dead Space is a great game.
I really enjoyed this game on the Impossible Setting , I felt like it was a better game on that setting. This setting is only unlocked beating the game once.
I also enjoyed the fact that you could use cheat codes and still get achievements. Something that is very rare in games these days. The cheats don't really ruin the game as you don't have God mode or infinite ammo, but they do help remove some anoying features like running out of oxygen and running out of stasis.
I also liked getting the one gun achievement.
This game has a pretty decent replay value as you can carry your items into the next game ,UNLESS YOU CHANGE DIFFICULTY, you can restart a game with all of your weapons ,items ect.
For those of you wondering what weapons are best?
IMO the best armor is the TANK ARMOR and can be downloaded off LIVE.
The best overall gun for the one gun achievement is the PLASMA CUTTER.
The best overall gun if ammo wasn't an issue would be the LINE GUN.
But as I played my 2nd time through I found myself really getting into the other weapons. Strangely though the flame thrower is weak and should be the last gun you upgrade.
The other weapons are good ,its just the plasma cutter and stasis seem to be the best combo for beating the game. Freeze and enemy and shoot their limbs off will be the main combat component. The LINE GUN is devistating when your out of stasis and enemies are rushing you as the LINE GUN just slices them in half.
I also enjoyed the basket ball mini-game. YOu could probably make a full fledged Xbox Live Aracade Game out of this mini-game. It's pretty kool and involves you using gravity and multiple hoops and involves you using gravity boots .Overall really kool feature.
Also I liked the gravity feature one of which involved you walking on an asteroid and another which involves you throwing giant glowing radioactive balls out the ships air hatch.
Dead Space does have some repetive momements , your basically on one large ship and each level basically is a reworked lateout of the next. Same Hallways, Same look , over and over. But I will say it still is a very good looking game. I had just wished they mixed up the same-ness of the levels.
The story isn't hard to follow IMO and has a almost predictable ending , but still a good ending and an overall game. The ending and story is enriched by reading the text found along the way in the form of audio and video files ,although they are completley skippable and up to you to read them or not.
I wish the DLC was free by now ,maybe they'll release a version with all of the DLC.
But if your wondering the best armor by far is the Tank Suit , so I would get that as soon as possible off LIVE, you don't absolutley need it , but its the best rated suit and should be the one you get if you want the strongest suit.
