Why isn't this being released in Japan. Should be appealing to the Japanese audience imo.

Between the 360 and PS3 versions together they have sold 1.5 million, so hey that's not bad at all imo.

Did a 6 hour speed run to get the one gun achievement, now on level 8 on impossible difficulty and it is hysterical! It's all about the stasis! Great action game.

Fun game! Great action packed sci-fi shooter. Not remotely scary though as the monsters like to make a grand entrance by SCREAMING & SHOUTING so not much element of surprise. Fantastic sound design, great visuals and tight gameplay make this a must buy.

I beat the game 4 times and loved every second of it! Even watching your body get chopped up every now and then still makes it fun. Also, when you play, make sure the room your playing in is dark and make the Brightness of the game on the lowest for more fun! :D

This game gets really boring and repetitive. I started on Normal mode got stuck on the bloody cannon Part - annoying POS. Started again on Easy Mode I only just passed the Canon Part with 11% left - friggin annoying. I kept playing the game it gets relly same after a while, boring middle levels. I got stuck on Chapter 9 the fire Control room and I just could not be bothered playing it anymore. Returned it within 4 days. I would say it was much harder than most shooter games I have ever played. Not passing it on Easy mode kind of sucks.

@ Baddman, you are probably at level 4 right now, and its true, by then the game does not seem to be scary, but after level 5 it will get scarier and scarier. Play it at night with the sounds loud enough to be able to hear all the little noises. Enjoy the game, its one of the best ive played so far this gen.

BTW,
this is a game you really need to play on a big high-def TV with a good, bass-heavy sound system in a dark room late at night.

@Baddman,
what are you talking about? This is the best science fiction horror game I ever played and is scary as hell. It just gets better and better from level to level.

Its a lock for 1m, provided it doesn't have a sales collapse next week.

The closest comparison would be Battlefield: Bad Company which sold just above Dead Space, at 330k o/w. It's at 940k now.

@ Strategyking92:

You got that part right! I got some BioShock vibes playing that game because you learn more about the story while listening to transmissions and all that stuff. Also, the gameplay is refreshing, and there's weapon/armor upgrades, etc.

@onimusha

I agree that this game is light years ahead of sr2, but if that demographic of people you are knocking on isn't buying games, you don't ever get to play dead space because a 360 or ps3 wouldn't even exist, let alone this awesome game...Don't bite the hand that feeds (I'm not trying to dog on you, but simply state that the video game market couldn't survive and thrive the way it does without tapping all demographics and exploiting potential revenue...just look at that joke of a "console" wii....anyone who thinks that "hardcore" wii gamers could keep nintendo afloat are just clinically insane)

Outsold by Saints Row 2, that tells you something about demographic buying the games this generation.

Sofa King Awesome! What Buckethead said. I do think its scary on hard mode though cause you know you can die at any moment under hordes of baddies. Must have for survival horror freaks!

This game is amazing!
I'm frickin lovin it!
Imagine Aliens, Doom, and Resident Evil 4 all mixed together and you're almost there.
The zero gravity and dismemberment is to die for.
It's not really scary, it's more disturbing and creepy more than anything.
I like the weapon upgrades too!
GREAT GAME!
