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, 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.

Dead Space did great with the GTX 275 and GTX 285, but did even better with the XFX HD 5870! The GTX 260's still put up decent rates and 4-series cards got half to less than half the score that the XFX HD 5870 got. Overall even the worst card provided playability with the game at full quality.
