Best game I've played since Bioshock!!!,
This review is from: Dead Space (PlayStation 3) (Video Game)
I got this game the day it came out for PS3. I definitely have enjoyed it a lot and think it's a heavy contender for game of the year. Some reviews have said it's too easy. I guess that depends how hardcore of a gamer you are. I guess I would consider myself a casual gamer, as I don't have time with work and a family to play all the time, but when I do play, it's games like this that I really enjoy.
The graphics and sound make for a really immersive experience, especially if you have good surround sound. There were numerous times I had goose bumps and was actually spooked a few times. Also, you are selling yourself short if you aren't set up for HDTV with the quality of games today. Playing this game on anything but 1080p is a disjustice to the game and your personal experience.
This game adds some different skills to the typical first person shooter. I really like the zero gravity. And the storyline is top notch and molds seamlessly with the game. It took me about 16 hours of gameplay to beat it, but I wasn't in a big hurry either. I could play it for 16 more hours!
