Über dieses Spiel

Nur die Toten überleben.
Ein riesiges Minenschiff verliert die Energie und die Lichter gehen aus, nachdem ein seltsames antikes Artefakt auf einem entfernten Planeten ausgegraben wurde. Ingenieur Isaac Clarke begibt sich auf eine Reparaturmission und stösst auf ein albtraumhaftes Blutbad — die gesamte Crew wurde dahingemetzelt und von einer außerirdischen Plage infiziert. Isaac ist auf sich alleine gestellt, sitzt fest und muss in dieser aussichtslosen Situation ums Überleben kämpfen.

Mein persönliches Review zu Dead Space:

Story:
Als Weltraum-Ingenieur Isaac Clarke sind wir mit unserer Crew unterwegs zu einem großen Minenschiff, der USG Ishimura, welches einen Notruf abgesetzt hat. Doch als wir auf der Ishimura ankommen, erwartet uns mehr als nur ein kleiner Motorschaden oder ein Stromausfall.. die Crew ist tot und alles ist voller Blut, was ist hier geschehen?

Gameplay:
Dead Space is ein Third-Person-Shooter, jedoch ohne zuviel Action, denn es ist vor allem auch ein Horrorgame. Das Raumschiff eignet sich dabei perfekt als Szenerie für eine beklemmende Atmosphäre und die Stimmung des Spiels ist einfach grandios, zwar eher im Sinne von beklemmend, aber das ist ja auch das Ziel. Auf jeden Fall ist das Gameplay an sich nicht allzu abwechslungsreich, meist müssen wir verschiedene Teile sammeln, etwas reparieren usw. Und zwischendurch immer wieder den ach so netten Necromorph den Gar ausmachen. Nette Idee dabei: Wildes Draufballern bringt gar nix.

Grafik:
Dead Space ist von 2008, deswegen ist die Grafik natürlich nicht mit heutigen Standards zu vergleichen, sieht aber auch heute noch gut und stimmig aus, besonders schön sind die Lichteffekte und vor allem der Sound. Die Geräuschkulisse und der Soundtrack sind echt knorke.

Fazit:
Dead Space ist echt ein geiles Spiel, angeblich soll es manche Leute mit dem Horror quasi zerstört haben. Ich persönlich kam ganz gut klar. Es war auf jeden Fall spannend und die Atmosphäre ist top, allerdings geht durch die Third-Person Ebene in meinen Augen natürlich im Vergleich zu z.B. Outlast ein wenig der Horror verloren. Aber das kommt denke ich drauf an, wie abgehärtet man ist und vor allem was man für Prioritäten setzt.
Nichtsdestotrotz bietet Dead Space eine interessante Story mit einigen unerwarteten Kniffen, Action ist vorhanden, Spannung und Horror auch - was will man mehr? Ich weiß was! Etwas mehr Level wären schön, zwar gibt's über 10 Stück, aber ein dickes Minus hat Dead Space in meinen Augen, wenn auch so ziemlich das einzige: Backtracking. Leider, leider durchlaufen wir viele Raumschiffabschnitte doppelt und dreifach. Das ist leider ziemlich schade, weil es den Spieler anödet, aber wir sind ja nicht zu kleinlich. In meinen Augen macht es das Spiel nicht weniger gut, ist aber auf jeden Fall trotzdem nicht gerade schön.. Trotzdem ein top Spiel, deswegen bekommt..

.. Dead Space von mir 4 von 5 Sternen

Mein gruseligstes Spiel bisher (mit sehr großem Abstand) und man bewegt sich bzw. zielt so langsam.. es ist eine (angenehme) Qual.
Möchte es noch beenden, bin mir nur nicht sicher ob ich mich das traue.
Aber diese Erfahrung es anzuspielen war mir den geringen Sale-Kaufpreis von 3 Euro auf jeden Fall schon wert.

DEAD SPACE, ein Third-Person Horror Surival Shooter der alten Klasse!

Dead Space glänzt durch Schockmomente, einer bedrückten und dunklen Atmosphäre und natürlich durch viele fiese Aliens/Monster, die wir nach und nach auseinander nehmen können.

PRO: + spannende Story
+ 8 versch. Waffen (reicht vollkommen aus)
+ Grafik, für heutige Verhältnisse recht gut
+ Viele verschiedene Monster/Aliens und auch fiese Bossgegner
+ Verstümmelungen an Gegnern möglich
+ am Anfang sorgt das Spiel für gute Schockmomente (Nach einiger Zeit ist man abgestumpft)
+ Mapsystem und Wegweiser für das schnelle finden von Missionszielen
+ viele verschiedene Locations

CONTRA: - nur manuelles Speichern möglich (nicht gespeichert -> alles nochmal von vorn)
- kleine Bugs (meist unauffällig)
- Missionen wiederholen sich oft (Reparieren, aktivieren, finden ...)
- minimale Unsynchronität in Szenen -> eher Grafisch bedingt
- geringer Wiederspielwert -> kein Multiplayer


Dead Space hat mich durch viele blutgetränkte Räume, Flure und Hallen geführt und mir eine spannende Story geboten. Die kleinen Bugs fallen kaum auf und das sich Missionen wiederholen, blenden das Gesamtbild von Dead Space kaum aus. Wenn du Spiel mit einer relativ guten Story, viel Blut und Monster/Aliens jeder Art - zerstückeln möchtest...

...DANN ist Dead Space genau was für dich!

Ich muss sagen selten habe ich ein Spiel gespielt,dass derart stark versucht den Spieler an den Pc zu fesseln und ihn gleichzeitg davon zu verjagen. Mit seiner Atmosphäre und den dazugehöhrigen Soundeffekten jagt einem das Spiel einen Schauder über den Rücken und gehöhrt zu den gruseligsten Spielen die ich je gespielt habe. Dead Space ist ein Sci-Fi Shooter, in dem es darum geht von einem mit Aliens besetzten Raumschiff zu fliehen. Das Equipment, das einem dafür zu Verfügung steht bleibt bis zum Ende des Spiels sehr überschaubar und auf höheren Schwierigkeitsgraden sollte man sparsam mit seinen Itmes umgehen. Es gibt allerdings die Möglichkeit das Spiel nach dem beenden noch einmal von vorne zu beginnen wobei das Itemset erhalten bleibt und für den nächsten Durchgang als Starthilfe dient. Es emphielt sich also, das Spiel auf einem leichten Schwierigkeitsgrad, um der wirklich packend und spannend erzählten Story des Spiels zu folgen, durchzuspielen und dann mit den übrigen Items das Spiel auf einem höheren Schwierigkeitsgrad neu zu beginnen. (Sollte man den Mut dazu haben :D). Obwohl es sich wie eine Ewigkeit angefühlt hat hatte ich das Spiel auf dem mittleren Schwierigkeitsgrad in etwa 15 Stunden durch. (Ab der Hälfte bin ich aufgrund der Angst, die mir das Spiel eingejagt hat in eine Art Rausch verfallen und bin qausi nur noch auf alles schießend was sich bewegt durch die Gänge gerannt in der Hoffnung das es bald geschafft ist. ;) )

Dead Space ist meiner Meinung nach auf jeden Fall eine lohnenswerte Anschaffung und eine absolute Empfehlung für alle Sci-Fi, Shooter und Horror Freunde, doch seit gewarnt sobald ihr beginnt wird euch die Story fesseln und die Angst euch packen. Werdet ihr es bis zum Ende schaffen ? oder aus Angst die Nerven verlieren und aufgeben ? Lasst es ruhig drauf ankommen und ihr werdet sehen aus welchem Holz ihr geschnitzt seit......


Ich entschuldige mich an dieser Stelle schon mal für Schreibfehler und möchte euch bitten mich darüber in Kentniss zu setzen falls ihr einen findet, damit ich ihn korrigieren kann. Falls es sonst noch Fragen gibt stehe ich natürlich auch als Ansprechpartner zur verfügung.

One of the best triple A titles I have ever played. You are Isaac Clarke, an engineer who has traveled to a Planet Cracker class ship to fix a communication relay, your motivation, the woman you love.

Things aren't so hunky dorey when you get there and what ensues is one of the best, albeit frustrating at times, survival-horror games ever made.

+The game still looks beautiful 6 years after release and there are plenty of opportunities for great screenshots
+Combat occasionally feels clunky but very satisfying when you dismember enemies
+Overall gameplay is good and rewarding
+Challenging boss fights
+Resource management is challenging but adds another level of gameplay to Dead Space
+When you complete the game you can start over with all of your items as well as some rewards for completing the game

+/-The plot, while the storyline itself is excellent, especially the twist at the end, some parts of the game are incredibly frustrating, e.g. 'Oh great you managed to find that thing which will save us! Oh but I just realised actually it won't be good enough, go find something else'
+/-Even medium difficulty is challenging at times, personally I like this but others may not
+/-Creepy enemies but not a particularly scary game especially compared to DS2

-Aiming while using matter cannons or while suspended by a 'large' necromorph is absolutely appalling even with a controller, very difficult to tell which way you need to move the weapon in order to get it in the right position
-Mouse controls aren't great and controller sensitivity can't be changed
-When using the steam overlay your normal mouse may appear in the game after using the mouse in the overlay
-No achievements

Verdict:
8.5

This is easily one of my favourite games and I'm so glad I played it to completion.

Yep, I'm 6 years late to the party with Dead Space, and even though it is that old, it still holds up well to being one of the most well-made games I have ever had the pleasure of playing. This is one of the few games that I was able to carry on straight into a second play through after finishing the first one.

This is a third person, action, horror survival game, and you play the ever mute engineer Isaac Clarke.

The scariness of the game is very much factor that dwindles as you play more and more. To begin with, every little noise kept me from turning a corner, but towards the end, the jump factor worse thin on most things.

Even though the game is 6 years old, it still looks absolutely stunning, giving you plenty of chances to show off that lens flare in screenshots. The combat can seem very difficult to get to grips with at first, but I bloody love how each part of the aliens can just blow up and be removed from the

The game is locked at 30 fps until you turn off v-sync, which is on by default for some reason, although once you do turn it off, your mouse controls become very slow and the only way I could get round this was by turning my DPI settings all the way up to max on my mouse itself.

All in all, Dead Space is one of the past decades classic must play titles.

Overview: Survival Horror-Third Person Shooter

The Good:

+Graphics

+Lighting

+Atmosphere

+No HUD makes things more immersive

+I love that once you gain control of the main character, you never lose control, there are no cutscenes, cgi or anything that takes away control of the character. All the action takes place from the characters perspective and that provides an extra layer of immersion.

+The game provides a great sense of pacing, slowly introducing new enemies, gameplay mechanics, locations and puzzles to keep you second guessing what's around the next corner.

+Variety of weapons

+Finding nodes throughout the ship as well as purchasing it in the store allows you to upgrade your weapons and suit

+Combat, shooting limbs off enemies is satisfying

+Monsters look, feel and act scary along with good diversity to keep combat engaging.

+Variety of death animations

+Sound effects


The Average:

Disappointing last boss

The story can be very predictable

A few crashes


The Bad

- The game has some technical issues that you should be aware about specifically regarding vsync, mouse lag, frame rates. Turn off vsync to get the best possible experience.


Conclusion

This is arguably one of the best horror games to come out in the last decade. It does so many things right in the genre. I STRONGLY recommend this game to anybody who either loves survival horror games or third person shooters.

A walking, talking Francis Bacon painting that a few sessions of marriage guidance could've have sorted out before take-off.

- Completed 12 chapters on 'normal' in around 9hrs unrushed -- was not bored for a single minute, and chalking this up as one of my favourite gaming experiences ever, on a par with Half Life 2 -- well worth the full price but a no-brainer on Steam sale.
- Dont let the mouse problem put you off -- it's easy to resolve (dont use controller)
- Dont let the 2008 date put you off -- it's well ahead of its time.

Steven King, that very prolific author, delineates three types of fear. First is the gross-out, or disgust; the thing you want to get away from. The second is horror, the unkown; an aversion to things that you do not quite understand. And finally there is terror, the creepiness; when something is so close to being normal, but off by a tiny bit that makes it completely uncomfortable to look at. Dead Space wants to be scary, so it taps into all three fears. However, it ultimately relies more on disgust and the jump-scare than anything else.

Dead Space is a third person survival shooter set in space. You play Isaac Clarke, an engineer sent to repair the deep-space mining craft 'Ishimura'. Unfortunately, the ship is overrun with space-zombies called necromorphs and something really shifty is going on there so your job quickly becomes to get off that metal hunk before you're brutally murdered.

As mentioned earlier, Dead Space is more like a shooter than a horror game. The trope of horror is invoked, with the shadows creeping along the walls and monsters scurrying in the vents while you can only hope they don't jump you when you're looking the other way. When the horror subsides the gross-out takes over as the monsters are disgusting amalgamtions of bodyparts with claws where hands used to be and tentacles from every orifice looking to turn you into deli-meat if you don't shred them before they get in your face. Is the game terrifying at any time? Once, in a cutscene for a second or so, but when you do the math, Dead Space is a survival disgust shooter.

The reason why it isn't horror is because you get a good glimpse and understanding of your foes. The necromorphs all waddle toward you and they'll let you pick them off. Dead Space does not work quite like most zombie games. Necromorphs are completely unimpressed when you behead them. No, you have to dismember them; tear them limb from limb. This creates for some cool gameplay mechanics where you'll aim for the legs to slow them down and then tear their arms off to finish the job. Yet, some enemies require a more measured approach where you have to get around them or prevent them from falling in the first place, otherwise they'll spawn more trouble. Occasionally one will get the drop on you, but you're not scared of the creeps; you're spooked, anxious and thrilled, but not fearful. You're armed to the teeth to such an extent that you only really fear for your life, and that is classified as suspense.

Dead Space plays much like Resident Evil 4 and 5 in terms of controls. You aim with a laser pointer and use your ammo conservatively. You can use special powerups to slow enemies down or to throw the set pieces at them. You're a veritable slayer of monsters and everytime you gear up with new tools you start to look the part as well. What also helps the suspenseful atmosphere is the intergrated HUD. You don't have a screen overlay; your health and ammo are displayed on your character's model and interacting with the world is done in the same manner. It creates a keen level of immersion that not many shooters can attain.

When all is said and done, Dead Space makes good use of its atmosphere and lighting to build suspense and to release that tension at the best moments. You're on the edge of your seat, holding on for dear life as you fight off the hordes of disgusting creatures. Even the bossfights are a well measured and carefully calculated ordeal that keep you sucked in and fighting for survival without resorting to cheap set-pieces or quick-time events. Dead Space is an amazingly atmospheric thrill shooter that needs to played if only for its amazing presentation.

I got this game years ago on another... online... game distrobution platform. A friend told me to play because I love horror games. I played the first few chapters and was so stressed out I ended up taking a break for over a year! I finally finished the game a few months before Dead Space 2 came out. It still stands out as THE most stressful, scary, and panic inducing games I have ever played.

Even though it's "old" it has aged well and even through all the blood and gore, it's still beautiful. Dig into the story and you'll enjoy this even more. Dead Space is the only game series that I've geeked out hard enough to read books about, it's that good. I hold the DS series at the top of my list of best games, right along with the Half-Life, Portal, and Mass Effect games.

I find it easier to write reviews in a Pro and Con list style, as I find it's a more effective way to get my meaning across, so please bare with me if it's not to your tastes.

The Pro's

-Good graphics, even with things like AA and other advanced settings off.

-Great atmosphere, especially with the music score at its full intensity and also by letting your imagination wander while playing.

-As I just touched upon, the sound design is fantastic, constant bangs, clunks, moans, and rattles give the effect that you are indeed aboard a decaying ship, with monsters moving throughout it. Fleshy bits make an appropriate "squish" when shot, and guns have an appropriate "oomph" to them.

-Good variety of enemies, each with their own strengths and weaknesses. For example, Slashers are fast, but have exposed legs, Pregnomorphs are slow, but hard to take down without spilling their "cargo" all over the floor, etc. Other types of enemies have other weaknesses.

-The A.I. is pretty good. Enemies will charge you if you turn your back, pop out of vents that are close to you, swarm you all at once rather than one at a time, etc.

-The story is good, but it does have its issues, as I will state in the Con's section.

-Voice acting is good, none of the actor's sound like they "phoned it in." While the main protagonist Isaac Clarke doesn't talk, he does make grunts, yells, and appropriately heavy breathing noises when necessary.

-Environmental design is great, cargo rooms and mechanical stations are open, crew rooms are more enclosed, with tighter corridors, etc. Rooms are in places that make sense (i.e, no engine room on the opposite end of the ship from where the engines are.)

-They story is pretty decently lengthed, I've beaten this game several times (mainly on console) and it still takes me around 8 hours or so. I'd imagine it would probably take a newer player around 10-12 hours to beat.

-Character design is good, no one is stereotypical, and each character is decently memorable.

-I enjoyed the audio and video log collecting, which helped expand on the backstory and helps determine just what happened aboard the Ishimura (the name of the ship you board.)

-There's a good variety of weapons, each with their own strengths and weaknesses. There's also different suit levels you can get, which work well and look cool at the same time.

-You can upgrade your weapons, armor, Statis unit (slows down enemies and objects), and kinesis unit (pick up objects from a distance) using "Power Nodes" you find throughout this ship or bought through the Store aboard the ship.

-Each weapon also has an "alt fire" mode to it. The plasma cutter changes from horizontal to vertical shooting (more useful than you might think) the Pulse Rifle fires in a circle, etc.

-Anti-gravity areas are cool, but could have been done better. (They are done better in Dead Space 2 and 3.)

-There's more positive aspects, but that covers most of the main bits.

-The game also likes to mess with you in small ways, areas that were safe most of the game may not be safe anymore, some enemies come out of unexpected areas, the game tenses you up for a scare that doesn't happen (but it's done well, and on purpose.)

The Con's

-Aiming is a bit iffy with a mouse and keyboard, turning of V-Sync helps, which you have to do both in the in-game settings and in the .cfg files for it to actually work. However, I'd recommend playing with a controller if possible, if not, you can still play the game quite well with a M/KB.

-While I stated earlier that the story was pretty good, it's not without flaws. For the most part you are the secondary protagonists *itch for most of the game, doing something or other for them, sometimes when it's something they could do themselves. Not to say they sit on their butts all game, but still.

-This game also follows the horror game trope of magically seperating you from you allies when a situation arises. Granted, it doesn't do it as often as other games and sometimes you even meet up with them. (Who'da thunk it?)

-As I said, this game has a cool variety of weapons, but for a more skilled player, they are unnecessary. I can make it through this game with just the Plasma Cutter and the Pulse Rifle as my weapons, not even touching the others. On console, I've even done an entire run through of the game with only the Plasma Cutter.

-The A.I. is good, but it does have its..... moments. I've seen Necromorphs pop out of vents, only to hop right back in and pop out somewhere farther away from me. I've also seen the A.I. not want to walk through doorways that lead out of the area, but are willing to hop in a vent and pop out of a vent that is in that new area, for reasons I assume that involve the games pathfinding.

-The game also can get repetitive after a while, not that it's not fun, but some Necromorph encounters do get predictable (mainly entering a new area and Necromorphs almost immediately showing up.)

-The game has puzzles (not that I mind), but almost all of them are pretty basic and easy (at least to me) and don't offer much challenge.

-Controls are tanky (much like Resident Evil 4), which is fine, but in some areas of the game (mainly anti-grav and space areas) these controls can get semi-annoying and cumbersome.

-The game just isn't that scary for me, it's pretty decently thrilling the first time you play it, and its got its tense moments, but I was never crapping my pants in horror or dreading to go in the next room. I am also hard to scare however, while some people are quite the opposite.

Nitpicks and Personal Annoyances

-The amount of settings are decent, but nothing to write home about, and I was disappointed by some options that were missing.

-The game isn't very optimized, I can play Dead Space 2 with higher settings than this one and run higher frames, yet I play this game with the same settings and get noticeably lower frames per second.

-Another reason to turn V-Sync off (as if there weren't enough already) is that it causes a noticeably annoying "dragging" feel to your mouse, this is especially present in the Main Menu and the Pause Menu.

-This isn't an annoyance, but playing this game with headphones is a good idea, it helps you find enemies easier, helps you get more enthralled in the atmosphere, and just makes it an overall better experience.


If I had to give this game a number review it would probably be a 9/10. (It'd be higher without the wonky V-Sync and mild control problems.)

And finally: TL:DR -MUST PLAY, BUT 2 SPOOKY 4 ME.

Well, first of all, let's say, that entering Dead Space universe is kinda risky, because it can hold you for a looooong time.
Dead Space is a some kind of masterpiece for me. I played it alot on pirated version, when i didn't even have a Steam, so don't pay too much attention about play time, just replayed it one more time on the hardest difficulty.

So, what is this game?

- First of all. NECROMORPHS! Yus, they are the key feature of this game, you will love them alot. They are very, very interesting, funny, lovely, and cute. But to be honest, ugly as hell, and sometimes Ishimura reminds hell really nice.
- Atmosphere. It has amazing sounds, scenes, and environment. Just don't forget to listen to sounds a little more, and you will feel yourself uncomfortable.
- Effort, length. Dayum, this game is longer, than 50% of our time's horrors. And very, very well made. Reading and listening to every note is making a wonderful feeling of very deep atmosphere.
- Great OST. I don't have any words for it. Had a feeling, that actually it's not a music, but real sounds.

Why i didn't say anything negative about game?
Because... Urgh, don't even know. I don't think, that this game has something to let people ragequit, except jumpscares.

Well. I'm giving to it 10\10, beause it's playable unreally good in our time too. Graphics are good enough. xD

Don't let my low hours fool you. I have played through this game a number of times on my Xbox 360, but since I've stopped using my 360 (but still wanted to play this game), I bought it on Steam.

Now, I thought I should address this issue first:

I have heard a lot of people complain about the mouse and keyboard controls in this game. My advice: buy yourself a wired Xbox 360 controller, download the drivers for it, and use that. Apparently bad keyboard/mouse controls aside, this game does feel like it was made for controller, and the controler settings are solid.

Now onto the actual game:

The Positives:

-- The story itself is good and I enjoyed it, but I felt like the story sometimes was a bit too far in the background (meaning I felt you were focusing purely on the objective and the story didn't really have much play in said objective). But overall, good story and despite the aforementioned, it was generally well implemented throughout the game. There are also twists, turns and little suprises that make it an awesome experience. Also, the ending was done really well!

-- The atmosphere is fantastic! The got the lighting right, the sound effects right, crew logs, everything! It was just done so right!

-- There are plenty of solid scares. There are some jump scares throughout the game and I know a lot of people hate those. But I'll be honest: jump scares really do work in this game.

-- The weapons are very well done; although there are some weapon and general game mechanics that really do lend the player to using the basic starting weapon throughout the game (not that this is necessarilly a bad thing).

-- Thought there is a realively straight forward (and argueably easy) way to play the game, there are so many other ways to play it. This ranges from weapons to the different modules (Stasis, Kenisis) to whether or not (and how) you use the object in the environment.

-- There is enough variety in the enemies to make it interesting, but few enough to keep the game consistent ( if that makes sense). and as the above point suggests, there is more than one way to fight each enemy (with the possible exception of the boss fights). I was say the enemies are very well done and always fun to fight.

-- Boss fights are very well done, and the bosses are very cool!

-- I know this is techincally part of the atmosphere of the game, but it is definitely worth mentioning on its own that the got creepy right! A lot of horror games get jump scares and maybe a few solid scares down-packed, but they never get the creepy element right enough to actually be creepy. This game does, and it does it well!


The Negatives:

-- The thumb-stick controls can sometimes feel a bit slow. It does feel like it should be a bit more twitchy. That being said, the controls do work rather well, so this negative isn't all that bad.

-- Picking up items can be annoying in a select few situations. For example, an item maybe under a Stasis recharge point and instead of picking up the item, it will constantly engage the recharge point instead. That being said, there are other ways to pick up that item, but still....

-- Save points are not disabled during combat. Intead of picking up ammo during a fight that I desperately needed, the game instead activated the save point and I died. To be honest, this has only ever happened once (and I've done three run throughs of this game on normal and my third attempt at doing it on hard).


Overall, this dismemberment simulator is a very solid game with pretty much everything done right!

9/10
