5 out of 5 eggs Classic Horror Game 06/11/2009

This review is from: Dead Space Playstation3 Game

Pros: Amazing horror game all around. Runs on the Godfather game engine. This game focuses more on dismembering enemies rather than shooting their head or abdomen. If you enjoy being terrified and wandering around in the dark whilst being ambushed by an alien infested space crew (Necromorphs) this is the game for you. One of my personal top favorite games.

Has a really nice feature which draws a path to your current objective(s) whenever you press and hold R3. This is especially helpful if you commonly get lost in games like this.

Cons: This game does not allow you to switch difficulty levels even after clearing the game, therefore you cannot transfer your weapons, upgrades, power nodes etc. to another difficulty level. If you want to change difficulties you have to start a new game. I don't know why EA choose to go this route but it does make the game much more difficult to clear on Impossible difficulty (which is somewhat of a Pro if you enjoy difficult games).

Other Thoughts: If your a fan of horror games this is a definite buy. I played it once on my friend's Xbox 360 and was instantly hooked and just had to purchase it for my PS3.

Definitely play on Impossible difficulty if your in for a REAL scare. The game just isn't as terrifying on any other difficulty. The ammo is scarce, enemies take more to dismember/kill and you practically die in 2-3 hits.

I highly recommend purchasing the Tank Pack ($3.99) and Steam Punk Force Gun ($.99) Downloadable Content to aid you in Impossible difficulty.

Good luck getting to the first store on Impossible difficulty (nearly drove me insane). I kept running out of ammo before I had a chance to purchase better weapons.

Pros: None!

Cons: First of all the card doesn't work at all, whenever I load ANY type of graphics the card instantly crashes and either makes my screen go blank (forcing me to reboot) or it automatically reboots and gives me an error once I login. I can't startup Linux in init 5 (GUI) I can only run it in command line (init 2/3/4).

It SOMEWHAT works on windows XP but when I use my browser, play videos, or load any type of graphics it crashes so I was forced to remove the card and use my old card. I set the card aside and haven't used it since.

I have tried several different versions of ATI catalyst drivers (including latest) and I even used microsoft's drivers for the card but nothing solves the problem. I spent nearly 2 months trying to figure out what was wrong with it till I finally gave up.

I even tried it on two of my other AGP PC's and I had the same effect

Other Thoughts: Very disappointed :(

Worse card investment I ever made. On board card works far better than this one ever did.

I thought to RMA the card but I didn't want the hassle of paying shipping and sending it back plus I was far beyond the time limit for RMA. I figured I could fix it therefore there was no need to RMA it. I don't think theres anything I can do now though.

I think it was just my card which was having problems, I inspected it for missing components etc but everything was fine. Must just be a bad card.

Pros: Burns great with no problems and even works faster and better than other more expensive DVD drives I own. It is also whisper quiet while burning...

Cons: It is pretty loud while reading...

Other Thoughts: Great for its price, I can't believe how good it works for such a cheap price
