A massive deep-space mining ship goes dark after unearthing a strange artifact on a distant planet
Top customer reviews
This game did not meet my expectations- it exceeded them. The environment you are thrown into is dark, terrifying, and puts you in this constant state of paranoia that a Necromorph will pop out and come for you. It is the first game I have ever played that actually makes you feel uncomfortable going into open spaces, or areas that are quiet. Even when in areas that are safe, you never feel truly safe.
Graphically, this game is gorgeous, the details are very articulated, and grungy. Fully lighted areas are as rare as a safe haven to rest. There are even some parts that really are genuinely pretty, like the view of space, whenever you get the option.
Gameplay-wise the game is amazing. The Necromorphs are constantly changing. Just when you think you have it down on how to combat them, new ones with new strengths and weaknesses pop up, keeping you in a constant state of adapting, so that you an survive. There will be stretches where you will be low on ammo and health and will need to be clever to defeat your foes and stay alive. Sometimes running is the only thing you can do to keep your head on your shoulders, until you can stock up on ammo, and replenish your health. A lot of enemies in this game move fast and can appear anywhere. Sometimes they'll just drop down from an open vent you did not notice, or pop out of an enclosure that you would not think they could possibly be in. The weapons selection is varied and each one has it's own perk, and drawback. You can't realistically have every kind of weapon at your disposal as it gets costly keeping them all stocked, and you have prioritize what you should buy: medpacks, upgrades for other weapons and your suit, etc. I just pick two weapons that I prefer and stick to keeping them stocked with ammo and upgrades.
The story concept while not entirely unique is told well, and made to feel fresh, so you're not 100% sure what to expect, which is a good thing, in a world where content is constantly recycled. The main character, Isaac Clarke, does not talk, or express any kind of character traits. He basically plays like Samus, or Link; the personality is pretty much left up to your imagination. There is no multiple choice, and the game and story are pretty linear, so there is no room to make any kind of Skyrim-esque choices that would effect the gameplay, or story. The side characters are overall interesting. The antagonists are creepy, or foreboding, and your allies are actually genuinely likable. Like you actually develop an attachment to them overtime. One issue you will suffer is, you will never be positive of whom you can trust in this game- even your own allies will leave you wondering if you can fully trust them and their motives. This game just generally keeps you constantly on edge, but in an enjoyable way. It can get hectic, and render you panic-stricken at times, but fighting the enemies is satisfying, and the rush you get when fighting them, and beating them down keeps you addicted and seeking more. There were even a few points, where I took delight in trolling my enemies. :P
The story compels you to keep going, even at times, when you genuinely would not like to (trust me, there are moments that you really do not wish to go forward in the game, because you know that nothing but more horrors await you).
If you are looking for a great horror game with a scifi element implemented, then buy this game. You will not regret it.
This game is a great thrilling SciFi adventure game which applies some puzzle problems as well. Really fun to play, can't wait to try Dead Space 2 and 3.
