Pre-E3 2009: Dead Space extracts itself from third person


You know what? Bravo EA. Someone start a slow clap, because this just looks awesome. I haven't been this excited for an on rails shooter since... actually, I've never been truly excited for an on rails shooter. Maybe interested in House of the Dead: Overkill, and rightfully so, but never truly excited. EA has done it though, and the new E3 trailer really shows us were in for something that at least looks great.

The trailer shows off the early stages of the game we assume as most of the people are still alive and the carnage doesn't really start till the end.I don't know about you, but the game looks generally scary to me. It could really go one of two ways though. Either the lack of ability to move the camera will make the scares all the better because it will be more cinematic or the lack of control of the character will deny the tension needed to make scares in games. Either way this is actually a pretty cool experiment in the genre of horror gaming.
