I just got Dead Space at my local GameStop...and yes I know I'm a little behind what with that fact that they now have Dead Space 2 out now, but man, this game is intense! Wow, it really borrows from Alien and a little bit of all those other horror space worlds. I am really enjoying it! Anyone of you guys played it or have it? Haha, I bet practically everyone here has played the game...especially you Saquist!

Is it true you only have 3rd person view?

Interesting fact: the conceptual artist for DEAD SPACE worked on the new STAR TREK movie. His name is Ryan Church, just look him up if you don't believe me.

Yup, it's true. And I'm already stuck on one part of the game...ugh I can't figure out how to get passed those two large machines that extend to the other side.

Do you have the "stasis" field capability yet? If it's a matter of slowing an object down, that might be the trick.

Been so long since I played the original, I'm not quite sure what your situation is.

Dead Space 2 ROCKS, but I'm having a witch of a time getting past Nicole.

Yup, finally figured it out! I knew there was something I had to do.

OK, I won't play it. I don't like forced 3rd person in a shooter game.

Always feels like somthing's blocking your view. That was fine in Tomb Raider, even necessary for all the climbing and jumping stuff... but for a shooter 1st person is the only option

I used to be the same way NCC, but a few third person shooters kinda changed my view (no pun intended...LOL).

With Dead Space, the third person view actually works, because your HUD is actually your character's space suit. Your health indicator runs up the suit's spine, your stasis energy meter is on the back of the suit, and every weapon you bring up has a holographic ammo count on the weapon. Believe me, the way they've made the game, the character doesn't seem in the way of the view at all. Plus, you can look all around your character.
