Somebody gets it. I'm glad. Good review, EmP. Gonna be a tough year in the TT.

Excellent review as usual, and I'd be interested in hearing your thoughts on Extraction, as well. I was surprised that the game received such positive reviews and the fact that you of all people seem to like it intrigues me greatly.

I think you may have meant "weld" instead of "wield" at several points in this review.

But that's okay. It wouldn't be an EmP review without Wolfqueen or I correcting your spelling.

Suskie: There are vague plans for an Extraction review. I've got a few other titles that I want to get written up while I'm enjoying it, but that's one game firmly on the list.

Will: Thanks for the catch. Perhaps if you ever finished your six-month late review, I'll return the favour.

"...but that's one game firmly on the list."

You're missing a "that's" in that sentence.

Don't worry, Will; WQ has many more things to point out than that.

You have the name of the ship spelled two different ways here (Ishimura and Ishumura). Which one is it? hahaha. I'd guess the latter since the rest of the review spells it that way, though.

Anyway, sweet review. The game seemed horrifyingly creepy to me when I first saw the previews and such for it however many years ago, and you do a great job emphasizing that all the more. Though, I will say that you almost make it sound like the game's attempt at seriousness is a bad thing, but the review as a whole makes it seem like it actually works out. Maybe that was the idea though.

I'd like to play this game one day, even though I know it'll likely scare the crap out of me. I can certainly imagine there are more creepy moments than those you describe, too. (The thing with the girl probably would've gotten me most though. For some reason, I'm reminded of the one in FEAR, even tough I've never played that game, either.)

I wish I had a full time team of editors to follow me around and correct all my grammar. And I wish I had staff editing privileges, so I could take advantage of those edits.

It took me years to get to the point where I had editing groupies, Zipp. Work hard and perhaps one day you'll get there too.

Dead Space is legit creepy because the game never feels off. You never know if that gutteral groaning is something waiting to chew off your face or just the failing ship complaining. The ambience is probably my favourite thing about it.

Thanks for the feedback and the catches!

Haha. Man, I'm really sorry about this, but I missed one earlier, and it was in one of the sentences I'd pointed out already. Kind of embarrassing. XD

There’s no safe havens

should be "There are" - you're plural.

Anyway, I'm really starting to wish I had a PS3.

Never wish that. The PS3 is the machine choice for the damned and the stupid.

LOL I can argue with you about that all day, so I won't go into any detail here. We'll have something interesting to discuss when I can get on AIM again, though. =D
