For the crew of the USG Ishimura, this is how the horror begins: On a deep space mining mission to a remote planet, an ancient religious relic - thought to be proof of the existence of God - is unearthed and brought abroad. It is worshipped by some, scorned by others. But when the unholy artifact unleashes a long-dormant alien race, its glimpse of Heaven transforms the ship into a living Hell. The chaos is immediate. The carnage is uncontrollable. And an onslaught unlike anything ever witnessed by mankind has now been set free to rip this world apart. Prepare yourself for this disturbing opening chapters of the new EA game that takes adult animation to graphic new levels of bloodshed and terror.
Before the video game
- Dead Space: Downfall review by CP Customer
Commissioned by Electronic Arts to tie in with the release of Dead Space. This animated movie allows gamers to see what actually happened on the space ship, before the game commences.
It is an interesting tactic but ultimately only worthwhile for those who enjoyed the game itself. However wonderful the video game is, the film experience here is sadly lacking. A series of animation shorts were released to reveal events on the planet surface. Those events are missing here, so in reality this DVD is only one part of the complete set. Only interested gamers need apply.
