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.

This game appears to favor the green camp performance-wise. The performance of the Sapphire Vapor-X HD4870 is superior to that of the two comparison HD4870s from 1920x1200 up to 2560x1600. The nVidia score will be included at a later date as a new driver that fixes the incompatibility with this game and my monitor were just released as this review was completed.
