I have a few more games to get through on my backlog, then I'm doing a replay of all 3.Dead Space (2008)
Great game that still visually holds up decently, at least I think so. The visuals and sounds do a great job at providing a tense and unnerving feel. The sound design is probably biggest thing that has aged the best.
Story is interesting and keeps you engaged to figure out what happened. Exploring around and uncovering what horrors are happening is something that brings you in to the story.
Gunplay and combat is fine but camera control wasn't the greatest. Not sure if it was by design, or due to console gen ports of the time, but the camera and aiming are sluggish. It does add to the atmosphere as you can't react as quick as you should but it seems to be a cheap way to provide scares. It didn't bother me that much to distract me from enjoying the rest of the game.
Overall really liked the game, had some good scares and looking forward to the remake when I do play it.
Also small spoiler for the very end
The jump scare in the last 5 or so seconds of the game, it got me GOOD lmao
I usually do a replay of all 3 every other year.
I think they are fantastic games, with 2 being my favorite.
