Fight with Weapons and Telekinesis
The alien hordes are incredibly resilient. You'll have to find creative ways to neutralize the attacking enemies by shearing off limbs with powerful weapons. And when the ammo runs out you'll be thankful that you can use your telekinetic powers to pick up objects (even the aliens' own severed arms and legs) and hurl them at your advancing enemies.
Graphics, Effects, and Sound Increase the Horror
EA delivers an incredibly frightening experience with state-of-the-art graphics and effects, an audio system that will have you jumping out of your seat, and a truly horrific atmosphere that is permeated with death, mutilation, and despair. You'll have to be resilient to slash through the alien onslaught and stop this virulent scourge. As you explore the ship, the tragic story of the USG Ishimura will unfold in gory detail as you discover frantic logs from the hideously transformed crew in their final days.
True Zero-G Effects
You'll be able to take full advantage of zero gravity in Deep Space. Battling enemies and solving puzzles takes on new challenges and present ingenious opportunities with the Zero-G game play. You can use zero gravity to create your own path around obstacles by walking on walls and the ceiling. Leap across vast distances or change your perspective to gain a strategic advantage over your enemies.

Top Customer Reviews
Fortunately, you can mitigate this somewhat by turning Vsync off (and enabling Triple-Buffering through video card drivers manually to compensate for the horrible screen tearing that results from turning Vsync off) and turning the mouse sensitivity to max. It makes the game perfectly playable, but it never feels quite as good as most PC shooters do, which is rather disappointing. If you don't do this, it feels like you're aiming/looking in mud--it's really obnoxious. Also, EA has stated that they have NO INTENTION WHATSOEVER to patch the game to fix this, so if you're hoping that that could solve the problem, I wouldn't hold your breath (the game is also already two years old as of this review and its sequel is imminent).
The game looks and runs great otherwise. I'm playing it at 1920x1080 ("1080p") on Windows 7 with 3GB of RAM, an Intel Core 2 Duo E7300 (2.66GHz), and an EVGA nVidia Geforce 9600GT.
My first play through took about 16 hours to complete.Read more ›
Came back and install it on my Dell Dimension 9200, which is about as pre-built as you can get right? No vista driver problems for me, right?
WRONG. 2 + 2 = giraffes WRONG.
First I had to tell my antivirus and spyware software about a BILLION times to let secure-rom install.
Second I installed it and rebooted.
Third my dvd drive no longer works.
I am not sure what changed between Bioshock and this game cause I bought Bioshock and had no problem with secure-rom back then. I bought bioshock full price and don't regret a single cent because I ACTUALLY GOT TO PLAY BIOSHOCK. I finished bioshock without even cracking it (although I eventually did for a second play-through, cause who wants to find the dvd everytime right).
REVIEW UPDATED :
Funny thing. I never did install Dead Space again on my system. I just can't risk having SecureRom on it again since I actually do tons of work on it. So here is a review of a cracked version of the game, as opposed to the boxed copy which now sits next to other games I don't play anymore (poor HL2). I think EA should have an option when you insert the disk that lets you chose between installing their DRM version or downloading a cracked one. I am joking but I totally am not.
The game runs nicely on my Dell Dimension 9200, which ran Bioshock and COD4 on high just fine. If you compare it to PC exclusive titles you can tell the textures in this game is low quality. Nevertheless, it has a nice, polished look.
The controls are fine. I tried it with my xbox 360 control but just can't bring myself to play any kind of fps without keyboard/mouse.Read more ›
This is brutal, it's unfair, and I hope other companies don't follow in EA's footsteps.
Hopefully, Left4Dead will deliver a fun gore-fest without killing my computer in the process.
Like most PC users, I use my PC for all sorts of things - working on photography, graphics, producing video, preparing content for my media center. I simply CAN NOT risk EA installing hacked up drivers on the machines of their customers and offer no way to uninstall to top if off.
By using this technology EA is effectively installing software that has proven to be problematic in the past. Also EA's new systems remove any resale value from the game - so once you have played it, you won't be able to trade it in or sell it. Even if you just re-install your OS a few times over the years or swap out your motherboard you could be faced with your own game refusing to install.
MY opinion - if I buy a game I want to be sure it isn't messing up my machine, I can do whatever I want with it - including selling it once I've played it through and getting some money back. EA is being greedy and not disclosing the full extent of their attempts to restrict how people who pay good money for their games can use them.
And to top it all off -EA has started flogging in game advertising (not sure about this particular game) so you pay for a game, it does nasty stuff to your computer, you can't uninstall the shifty drivers, you can't resell the game and you have to watch ads that EA is making MORE money on.
EA - pull your head in. Developers must be devastated that their hard work is crippled by your desperate attempt to enforce shoddy DRM control mechanisms on your paying customers. You have to wonder when you get a better product (DRM free) when you PIRATE it.
By from other distributors until EA stops abusing its customers.
