In Dead Space, you play as Isaac Clarke, a ship systems engineer sent in to address a distress signal sent out by the USG Ishimura. After a malfunction, Clarke’s ship crashes into the Ishimura and, not long after, the crew members are attacked by grotesque aliens and are forced apart.
With his engineering skills, Isaac must fight off the terrible monsters that have taken over the ship, find out what happened, and get the hell off as fast as he can. Dead Space has an incredibly tense atmosphere and gruesome setting, making it an overall truly horrifying experience, just like Resident Evil. Except set in space. Originally released on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC, a remake is currently in the works for next-gen consoles. Until then, it’s still playable on PC, and you can also play it on Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S thanks to backwards compatibility.
