This is Dead Space
Having played through both Dead Space & Dead Space 2, I can say that this rendition of Dead Space for iOS is a perfectly acceptable contribution to the Dead Space franchise. In this version, the protagonist is a Unitology convert code-named "Vandal", who's verbal interaction is done through an ID-preserving voice filter. He is aboard a spaceship (or maybe it's a space station) with a sabotage mission that he himself has been kept in the dark about - he is unaware that his mission was also planned as a suicide mission. His acts of sabotage have caused the creatures to be loosed on the ship. Once he realizes what he's done - and that he was intended to die doing it - he switches sides and attends to the bidding of the the ship's/station's commander (this person is the same person that is the antagonist in Dead Space 2) in an attempt of damage control.
The controls seem a bit odd at first, then one gets the feel of what the designers were thinking as to the best way to move about in the game. Again, a bit odd, but control of the character is there and is effective enough.
The graphics are as good as can be for a tablet device, and I have had no issues with crashing.
This app is sizable; my iOS 5.1-running iPad says it's 825MB; which isn't too bad considering that I have five other games that are lager than this (Backstab and The Bard's Tale are the largest; the latter being over 1.7GBs).
Not nearly as good as advertised
I'm not complaining about ads or anything like the other reviewers, I'm just critiquing the app as it is, a video game, first of all, the "intuitive" controls while easy to use, are ultimately horrible, the weapons have the positions of in use and out of use, and whenever you move, the weapon moves out of use, even if you are in the middle of a fight, reloading the weapons which have very low ammo and that take multiple rounds to kill monsters, are horrible, and most times when clicking other items or trying to reload the weapon fires rounds that you really can't afford to waste, due to the low capacity of ammo you can carry, targeting is done by guiding lasers and sight, the weapons themselves work generally well as long as you aim properly under pressure, the game has its shock and surprise value of all dead space games and despite being a little lower quality as compared to the console games, is still ever present in this game, there are no lights on the weapons as in the other games, which is a disappointment, but in this game, makes very little difference to gameplay, movement and camera angle controls are good, but i would still prefer buttons to control firing and reloading to save on costly ammo loss, the game gets a 3 stars for the lacking and poorly designed weapon and fight controls which are the core of game survival, and ea just screwed it up big time, how it became so high rated will remain a mystery to me
It won game of the year for a reason. Don't you listen at all to those people complaining about ads, I've seen maybe 2, and none of them were in game. The minimal amount of ads don't take away from gameplay at all. The graphics are console quality, think XBOX 360. The story is mysterious and interesting and had me hooked for hours. It has tons of replay value such as going back and buying the most powerful weapon, which mind you, costs no real currency, it can be bought with all in game money! To further enhance the replay value, it has an endless mode, where you can survive as long as you can, killing enemies to get money, which carries over to campaign. Other modes are included as well, with concept art and other extras coming as part of the package. Aside from the purchase of the game, no other real money needs to be spent. The control scheme is a little awkward at first, but is easy to get used to. Lastly, this is not for the weak stomach, easily scared, or immature. Contains strong language, blood and gore, scenes of horror, and intense sci-fi violence. All the same, don't let that turn you away from the game too much!
Bottom line, perfect game. No problems, handles like a dream. And, at the time of this review, only $0.99! You can't beat that! Download now!
