Welcome new recruit, hope you enjoy traveling through the emptiness and void of space as you traverse a deserted ship for signs of life that cried for help before their lives faded away.
Once again another game that is so horrific by the end of it I hope the main character just has common sense to ask for a pay increase.
Dead Space is a great atmosphereic game that has alot of variety in enemies. While I did not find this game to be much of a "horror" like how I think of Amensia I did find it to be a very good action-thriller.
:::::Tools as Weapons::::::
Being able to modify them and upgrade them as you please to get more firing power from them and several advantages over your enemy? Game has a good amount of weapon progression that allows you to feel like your building up some nice horse power in those mining tools.
:::::Role as Engineer:::::
Repairing things in the game is simple to do but also feels rewarding and like you are playing a actual role in trying to restore the ship back to its previous glory. Upgrading your suit throughout the game is pretty helpful... to avoid dieing brutally.
There is a good selection of enemies and bosses to blow apart in this game. Brought me back to the days when games like doom had alot of variety in monsters. Their weaknesses being their limbs is also very interesting and somehow at the same time disturbing to a degree. A shame you cannot make any snowmen out of their limbs would be a real good scare for the children.
For those who want to play a game where you play as a engineer who goes through a isolated spaceship and blast the limbs off your enemy I do not know why you are still reading this.
Disclaimer: You might get so used to using tools as weapons that you go into your shed and modify everything into weapons and walk out like a berserker in a RPG fully geared to rock and load.
