Dead Space remake review: One of the best horror games is made whole again

After almost a decade since the last addition, we can return to the Dead Space universe. Developer Motive Studios and publisher Electronic Arts completely recreated the original game and the results are outstanding. Walking down the empty hallways, listening for signs of movement in the walls, checking to see if the plasma cutter is reloaded, it all feels familiar and awesome at the same time.

If you’ve played through Dead Space before, the general story here is the same, although expanded a fair bit. Players slip into the armored shoes of Engineer Isaac Clarke, who is part of a small team sent to perform repairs on the USG Ishimura, a massive ship designed to break apart planets and gain vast amounts of resources to process.
