About This Game
Dead Space is a third-person shooter with a Survival Horror setting, developed by EA Redwood Shore (now Visceral Games) and distributed by Electronic Arts. It is the first title in the Dead Space series, franchise. The story unfolds inside the USG Ishimura space extractor.
The crew have been slaughtered by necromorphs, monsters created by an alien virus. The protagonist, Isaac Clark, has to face the necromorphs alone. The action unfolds like a third-person shoorter with a controller clearly influenced by Resident Evil 4.
The setting is strongly reminiscent of the Alien movie. The goal of most missions is to scour the decks of the Ishimura to collect items and take them to certain points as directed by other supporting characters to Clark via his radio link.
