Eurogamer - Edwin Evans-Thirlwell - No Recommendation

While a fine piece of craft and a sumptuous reworking of the setting, EA Motive's Dead Space remake sheds a little of the 2008 game's enchantment.

GGRecon - Kiera Mills - Not Yet
Unfortunately, due to a late game code, we could only gather first impressions of the game based on the first few chapters. As it stands, however, the game has been immensely enjoyable and is a must-recommend so far, providing us with hours of gruesome, deadly fun in the void of space.

Game Informer - Marcus Stewart - 9 / 10
Rather than reinvent the wheel, Motive made Dead Space look nicer, play better, and preserved the core of the experience. Its new flourishes add to that enjoyment instead of subtracting.

GamesHub - Nicholas Kennedy - 4 / 5
It can’t be overstated just how much a Dead Space remake always seemed like a sure thing, and after my time with it, that perspective hasn’t changed. It’s easily one of the best modern horror games, and the fresh lick of paint to really bring its grimy, snarling interpretation of sci-fi horror into sharp new relief is very welcome, especially when it maintains such faith in the source material.

Hardcore Gamer - Adam Beck - 4.5 / 5
Motive Studio has done the unthinkable with Dead Space. It has turned this iconic, incredibly memorable survival horror game from fifteen years ago into an even more immersive and engaging experience.

Inverse - Joseph Yaden - 10 / 10
Dead Space is a shot-for-shot recreation of the original that manages to recapture the 2008 game as you want to remember it — meaning it’s actually better than ever.

MondoXbox - Davide Mapelli - Italian - 9 / 10
Dead Space brings us a remake that is respectful of the original title but with many new features that improve it in every respect. A milestone in the horror genre and a title you absolutely must have in your collection.

One More Game - Chris Garcia - Buy
The Dead Space Remake is a stellar effort from Motive Studio that respects the source material but also makes just enough meaningful changes to gameplay to suit modern audiences and provide a fresh experience. It wasn’t an easy task, considering how the original is held in high regard, but the results cannot be denied, and they have indeed lived up to lofty expectations.
One highlight of the game is its superb audio design, which keeps players on their toes, elevating encounters and maintaining tension levels high all throughout. Paired with chilling visuals and lighting that evoke an atmosphere of dread, the USG Ishimura is even more terrifying than ever before.

PCGamesN - Philip Hayton - 9 / 10
Motive's Dead Space Remake is a gloriously grotesque glow-up that embraces the original horror game's robust formula, and only a slight amount of jank keeps it from achieving perfection.

PlayStation Universe - Neil Bolt - 9 / 10
With this remake, Motive has managed to treat the original Dead Space with the utmost respect whilst rebuilding it to be perfect for today. Almost every improvement serves to enhance the reputation of a horror classic. Dead Space should be the blueprint for creating a truly exceptional remake.

PowerUp! - Leo Stevenson - 6.5 / 10
In the moment-to-moment gameplay, it literally feels identical, but that's because it is. Anything new in Dead Space doesn't enhance the experience, it detracts from it. So, we're left with a worse version of a game that looks vastly superior.

Sirus Gaming - Noel Lontoc - 9 / 10
Even though it's 10 years late, Dead Space (2023) is Electronic Arts' apology letter after the mayhem of Dead Space 3. With the release of this remake, it has been demonstrated that good development and listening to what the public wants is essential in providing a breath of fresh air to an old game.

Twinfinite - Dylan Chaundy - 5 / 5
Taken as a whole, though, Motive Studio’s Dead Space remake is an unmitigated success that builds upon its predecessor’s story in small yet meaningful ways.

Going 85 but I'll take the upper end on it.

I found a CEX voucher while I was cleaning out a drawer so I'm kinda hoping somebody gets scared and bails and dumps it on them on Saturday.


I cry about Xbox and hate PlayStation.
i preordered the game.

Im really curious on the intensity director or something

70-80 but wouldn't be surprised if it averages slightly above 80.

The template is already there, but did the developers manage to improve on it? Or at the very least, not muck it up?

The original game I think got good reviews, so unless they messed it up it's pretty hard to get worse. Even just a pure 4k reskinning would lead to good scores.
