I remember a time when people were talking about how amazing Dead Space 2 was, and while it’s not a bad game kwa any means… I’m sorry, I just don’t get why people call it the best in the series. Well, if it was this au Dead Space 3, I could understand. But honestly, my inayopendelewa in the series is and will always be the original Dead Space.
Dead Space follows Isaac Clarke, a shy little boy who travels with a rescue team to the Ishimura, a massive space mining ship that went radio silent some time ago. Isaac came because his wife, Nicole, is on the ship, and could still be alive. But once they land on the ship, it is eventually clear that the ship is a Lost cause, as it is running with violent alien creatures formed from the corpses of the humans onboard, and Isaac now has to find a way off the ship using only the mining equipment onboard the ship. Unlike Dead Space 2, Dead Space 1 is quite, with each small sound freaking wewe out. Just hearing a pipe fall in a distant location can cause wewe to piss yourself. Dead Space uses silence real well. It won’t take long before Necromorphs are running at you, ready to tear wewe apart. The game gives wewe a ton of great weapons, like the Ripper, the Plasma Cutter, The Line Gun, The Flamethrower sucks, so throw it away, and so much more. But wewe aren’t just limited to your weapons. wewe also have Telekinesis powers. There are only two, but work well for puzzle solving and dealing with enemies. There’s the normal Telekinesis which allows wewe to songesha things around, as well as moto them forward. The other one allows wewe to slow down things, from closing doors to enemies, which will make fighting them off much easier. Using the telekinesis when fighting enemies also works well, as wewe can send pipes at them and impale them, which is a ton of fun to do. And the game is just all kinds of creepy with it’s enemy designs. Something about seeing the body contort and deform just to fit the monster that is controlling the human body always disturbed and fascinated me. I think it was because I watched The Thing when I was a young kid, which probably was not a good idea. Just looking at the Necromorphs disgusts but interests me. It’s like looking at a really, really bad car accident. And I mean that in a good way… kinda.
Dead Space was a true classic among the horror genre, wewe know, before Dead Space 3 fucking killed it. It was creepy, atmospheric, and just an ujumla, jumla fun experience for me. And it’s a shame that the franchise died, but, that’s what happens when wewe got EA breathing down your neck, am I right?
