This could be one of 2008's hidden treasures, unless EA promotes it like crazy. It could be lost amongst the likes of Resistance 2 and Gears of War 2 at the end of the year, but if you do miss Dead Space, it could prove to be a colossal mistake. EA appears to be trying to lend some innovation to the relatively small survival/horror genre, and this video proves the game's inherent creepiness. As you can see, it utilizes the third-person over-the-shoulder shooter view that Resident Evil 4 helped to pioneer, and the environment in Dead Space looks downright freaky. This is one title we're going to continue to track, just because we think it has loads of potential.
