October 13, 2008 - Excellent - This is the best survival horror game since Resident Evil 4 and a must play for anyone that appreciates the horror and/or sci-fi genre.
October 31, 2008 - Excellent - Dead Space is a remarkable game from a well-tread genre that manages to stand out from its competitors in almost every way, from visual presentation to engaging story, innovative combat mechanics to fright factor.
October 14, 2008 - Excellent - [Dead Space's] quality is undeniable and we have no reservation in recommending its potent mix of panic-inducing plotline, furious action and deep customization.
October 14, 2008 - Excellent - The very fact that we wish Dead Space included more of its original features and less content pulled from the last generation's greatest game speaks volumes for the quality on show.
October 13, 2008 - Good - Dead Space ultimately feels like an incredibly polished and varied 6-hour game stretched out to make it twice that long. While I felt like I was repeating the same objectives a few too many times, the combat held up so well that I didn't even mind...too much.
October 20, 2008 - Good - Despite lacking some tweaks that could have made the most horror-jaded gamers wet themselves, Dead Space delivers scares, gore and a truly disturbing gem of a game.
