Perhaps the scariest installment of the Dead Space series. Ten years later, this Sci-Fi action horror game still gives me the chills. From the sheer goriness to the frightening atmosphere of the game, this game has it all. If you’ve heard of this game and would like to try it, it’s currently free on Humble Bundle. Go get it now!
What Is Dead Space?
Dead Space is a Sci-Fi horror third-person shooter game with the more grotesque looking enemies you’ve ever seen in a video game. Thinking about it has me shuddering. You play the game as Isaac Clarke, an engineer on the USG Ishimura. Yes, an engineer, not a soldier. Don’t worry, Clarke is a weapon specialist who develops the weapons that help fight against the Necromorphs, grotesque mutated human bodies that were left behind.
You can upgrade your weapons as you gather more resources throughout the game, which is really one of the best mechanics in the game. The different weapons will help you throughout the zones and be able to adapt your weapons to stronger Necromorphs is going to be immensely useful. It’s really the only thing that gives you a sense of security in the game.
This game is immensely challenging as well. Though the graphics are not great, it doesn’t make the game any less scary. A good thing about this game is that it’s a decade old. So you don’t need a powerful PC to run it. Why not give it a try?
