I'm the kind of gamer who'll enter every room with my gun raised, glancing around every corner, making sure to scope the room out for places I can run to in case an ambush happens. So when I first popped in Dead Space, I was kind of surprised to find myself coasting through it with nary a worry. Sure, the game offers a few good "boo" moments, but I never really felt concerned about my survival, nor was I ever discomforted by the happenings around me. And yet, despite the lack of scares, I still feel like Dead Space is one of the best horror titles I've played in ages. The mechanics are so solid, and the atmosphere is so great, that I found myself overlooking its flaws.

I swear, we must be sharing some kind of secret gamer wavelength. This is the third or fourth time you've posted a review of a game that I'd JUST finished playing through myself. Good stuff, although IMO you underrated the story and I wasn't nearly as put-off by the backtracking. I loved this game.
