So - I went over to a friend and played the PC version of Dead Space for a few hours. The beginning is terrible. Way too much scripted action events, which felt pretty "meh" to me, but I was amazed by the fights against human enemies - amazed, that, AI-wise, humans can be even more stupid than necromorphs. Maybe the Convergence isnīt that bad after all.
About the cover system... Well, did I ever need a cover system in DS1 or 2?
Later, when I explored some abandoned space ships, the game resembled more DS1, just without its awesome atmosphere. The jumpscares are as 'scary' as the stuff you encounter in Doom 3. Itīs pretty much necromorph on the ceiling, necromorph behind you, necromorph behind a door, etc... Or something happens with a very loud sound. Thatīs cheap.

Ha ha, EA. Theyīll probably fix this glitch and put it back in - as DLC ($4.99).
