The fact that the iPad and iPhone versions of Dead Space have been released today to coincide with the release of the long-awaited Dead Space 2 on the major consoles shows exactly how much importance companies such as EA now place on the iPad and iPhone as a gaming platform. The iPad Dead Space game features an all-new Dead Space story that is designed specifically to set the stage for the action-horror storyline of the console game sequel. Working closely with Visceral Games, EA Mobile development studio IronMonkey Studios created a unique gameplay experience for iOS gamers. Featuring a fully voice-acted stereo soundtrack, plus orchestrated score and sound effects, players can hear every footstep in the dark, empty passages and feel the tension build as they are pulled deeper into danger at every turn. Coupled with cutting-edge visuals that are rich in effects and atmospheric lighting, Dead Space reproduces the cinematic horror of the console experience and sets a new benchmark for graphical fidelity on the iOS platform.
The game has only been out today, and yet already itís got nothing but 5-star reviews in the App Store, so it looks like Dead Space may well be the first of this yearís classic iPad games.
