In Dead Space, as part of the crew of the USG Kellion you are headed on a repair mission to repair a ship in distress. Things go from bad to worse as starting with the crash landing and seemingly silent and "Dead" ship, the USG Ishimuru. Offering a non-traditional over the shoulder viewing angle, the game gets right into the action as soon as the ventilation systems are activated. From there things get worse with the appearance of the Necromorphs. Survival now becomes a primary concern for the primary character Isaac Clarke. Survive and you may find the loved one that was aboard the Ishimuru. Again, there are some screen shots of real gameplay to show a bit of the action. In one frame a Nicromorph is visible right before an attack from behind.

This game definitely suites Nvidias hardware. The GTX 295 just crushes the HD4870x2 as it does not scale much at all with the second GPU. On the other hand, the performance of the GTX295 just does not drop off. The difference in performance between the dual GPU cards is a hundred frames or better in 3 out of the four resolutions.
