Dead Space Remake Review Embargo Lifted

Dead Space Remake is off to a great start with a score of 90 on Metacritic for the PlayStation 5 port of the game.

The original Dead Space is a classic survival-horror experience, thanks to its gratuitous use of guts, gore, and highly disturbing imagery. The 2008 game doesn’t hold back on the punches, and this is all part of the draw for its proponents — the stranger and scarier the visuals, the better. And in the new remake, which will be released on Jan. 27, developer Motive Studio has added some accessibility options that keep the bite of the original game while broadening the appeal.

The review embargo for the game has been lifted as the game nears its release date. The score slightly alternates with time as the embargo has just been lifted. However, it is still enough to gauge that this remake is more or less superior to the original.

As of now, both the PC and Xbox Series X ports of the game are sitting at a score of 88 on Metacritic. It is important to note that so far, both Xbox Series X and the PC pages of Dead Space Remake on Metacritic have far fewer reviews than the PlayStation 5 page, which is sitting at about 90 with 38 critics reviews.

While investigating a distress call sent by the ship's medical officer and Isaac's girlfriend, Nicole Brennan, the vessel's crew is attacked by mutated human corpses. Isaac is forced to fend for himself as he tries to save his surviving crewmates and learn the truth behind the loss of the Ishimura.

Dead Space Remake releases on 27th January and is available on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and Series S, Microsoft Windows.
