You have to hand it to Dead Space, it's a franchise that knows
how to sell out with style. Games, comic books, movies, toys, clothes
-- Visceral's action-horror franchise is committed to flooding you with
as much stuff as possible.
A mobile game was inevitable, with this in mind. However, Dead Space
for the iDevices is no mere cash-in. Rather than go the easy route with
an on-rails shooter or a selection of banal minigames, Electronic Arts
and IronMonkey Studios have instead opted to cram a genuine third-person
Dead Space experience into your iPhone.
The weird thing is ... it more or less works.
