With a remake on the way, it’s important to remember what made Dead Space so special

The original Dead Space has aged like fine wine…or a pool of blood depending on how much you remember from it. For a game that explained to the player to “cut off their limbs”, it certainly didn’t disappoint in the gore department. Stomping around the haunted halls of the USG…
