Reviews: DEAD SPACE (Video Game)

Posted by:

No, that is not a typo in the title, for the first time ever HND has multiple reviews for the same item.  Today we talk DEAD SPACE, a survival horror video game on 360, PS3 and PC from Electronic Arts.  I’ve always wanted to have multiple perspectives on the same thing run at the same time, so this was the perfect opportunity.  It isn’t exactly a round table discussion as there are only two people involved, but hey, gotta start somewhere.

First up is a take on the game from guest Matt Jordan.  Next up is my own take, but instead of writing an additional, typical review, I’m going to supplement Matt’s thoughts and play devil’s advocate in some regards.  Maybe down the line we’ll have a third person come in and do the same to mine.  I apologize if this results in a loonngg read, but unlike a two hour movie, I think something you’re looking to spend 10-20+ hours interacting with needs a comprehensive vetting.

Oh, and just so everyone knows, Matt and I both played DEAD SPACE on the 360; I have no reason to believe the experience will be any different on PS3 or PC.

Last Week in Horror: June 29th to July 6th

Last Week in Horror, The items of most interest to me belong to genre brother Sci-Fi.  Alex Proyas’ latest film, KNOWING, finally got a trailer, albeit a derivative, uninvolved one.  But I love DARK CITY so much, even Nicholas Cage’s forehead couldn’t keep me away.  Same goes for Keanu Reeves’, well, entire self in THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL remake.

Also, I was sent a press release regarding a contest for Electronic Arts’ forthcoming survival horror game DEAD SPACE.  Normally I’d not pass along such a thing, but DEAD SPACE happens to be a title I’ve been anticipating.  Not to mention the 100 film prize pack at the end of the rainbow is a bounty worth coveting.
