In the end, I can say there will only be a handful of gamer types who won't appreciate what Dead Space has to offer. Either you don't like horror games/movies, you want multiplayer action, or you have no inner kid in you that allows you to be scared and let your imagination run away with you. If you meet any of these above criteria, you won't "get" Dead Space. That being said, this is the most fun I've had being scared in a video game since I first encountered the 'dog scene' in Resident Evil. The game is very pretty, draws you in with it's sound, atmosphere, and story, plays wonderfully, and is diverse enough from chapter to chapter where you feel like you are not playing similar missions (like Assassin's Creed). I can't recommend Dead Space enough; it is already up for my GOTY vote, and with a crowded line up of games coming soon, that is a bold statement.
