One of the best horror games of 2008, Dead Space is currently selling on Amazon for $18.99. This deal is too good to pass up, so if you’re looking to add another great game to your 360/PS3 library, make sure you add EA’s Dead Space. Trust me!
Dead Space takes place in the 26th century. The USG Ishimura (“石村” literally “Stone Village”) “Planet Cracker” ship, during the process of mining the planet of Aegis VII, sends out a distress signal to the Concordance Extraction Corporation (CEC); the CEC dispatches the USG Kellion to investigate. As the Kellion attempts to dock with the Ishimura, a malfunction occurs and the Kellion is badly damaged, and the crew begins to seek a means of return. As the crew explores the apparently abandoned Ishimura, they are attacked by grotesque monsters, who kill off all but Clarke, Hammond, and Daniels. Hammond recognizes that many of the ship’s systems are failing, threatening the ship due to a nearby asteroid belt, and sends Clarke around the ship to fix the core systems to keep them alive.
