The first installment in the Dead Space series is set in the year 2508 and begins when a mining starship, the USG Ishimura
, sends out a distress signal during a mining operation on the planet Aegis VII. In this game, players step into the role of Isaac Clarke
― a ship systems engineer whose journey starts on a seemingly routine mission to fix the communication systems on the planet cracker.
It is not long until he realizes that he stepped into a living nightmare of vicious alien creatures and a dead silence ship where he must constantly fight to get out alive.
The story in Dead Space is one of its strongest points. Most of it is told via video, audio and text diaries you find scattered around the ship. Another strong point is the atmosphere, a lot of it due to brilliant sound effects. It's a very impressive looking game overall, though sometimes you will feel like you are going through the same corridors over and over again. The combat is also good. Some sections may look a bit repetitive, however, the strategic dismemberment and the stomping are just extremely fun and satisfying.
Being a fan of the survival horror and sci-fi genres, I played this game myself and have watched other people play it, and it simply does not get boring. It does stop being truly scary after the first few hours but jump scares are always around the corner.
