can someone plz explain to me the story behind Dead space? Spoiler inside
ok, so i played dead space 1 for about 1 hour or so but i could'nt get into it, not the game itself, but rather the gameplay which seems claustrophobic, or more like i hated the controls. Seems like the game was made for consoles. I recentely got dead space 3 for free due to EA giving out free copies to people who got SIm city.

I fired up dead space 3 and enjoyed the compact and the atmosphere. I decided to get back into the series and try dead space 2, which in my opinion, so much better than dead space 1 as far as controlls .

I would like someone who is familiar with the series to explain the story behind dead space 1 and leave it where dead space 2 starts,I understand that Isac is an engineer who volunteered to fix some ship and then they found out that there are some creatures there from some cult or some experiement. Please help me understand the story behind the first game, so i can enjoy the 2nd game knowing what is actually going on

Thank you

http://deadspace.wikia.com/wiki/Dead_Space should fill in the gaps. I agree DS2's controls were alot better, but didnt stop me from playing through DS1 a few times on pc Its worth the pain though in my opinion.

I don't know if this helps at anything DEAD SPACE but if you whant to under stand more of dead space history i invise to play the first one i know of the wierd unconforteble control it has so i but a xbox 360 controler to help me with the game.

Game spoiler in the story of dead space is that it all started in a planet cracker named uss ishimura this ship was the first planet cracker so basicly the intier campian was over run of some kind of infection of necromorfs that came out from the "RED MARKER" the very first marker made by human...
the rest of the story you must play it and read it because i found some info of tau volantes the found by Eli i hope this info help you on any thought in the game.
