Nice and Bloody

I haven't played the video game yet, because the movie is a prequel story to the game. I liked what I saw! It wasn't the best animated movie I ever saw, but it is really well made and seems to fit nicely into a history. Can't wait for what is going to happen in the game (have seen stills of the movie, which suggests, that the game has a different "cartoon" style than the movie).

As the game is supposed to be, the movie is very violent. The game is supposed to have more scares though. It's graphic (no pun intended), but the horror factor might be low for some people. Characters are very well drawn (again sorry for the pun) and hopefully you'll like this and enjoy it as much as most did here

Nothing to see here. Move along.

I'm not a game player so I'm looking at this simply as a movie.

It's very violent. There is some bad language but it seems pointless to complain about this given the level of violence.

It's very derivative, seemingly cobbled together out of elements from other movies and games. There are no surprises.

The characters exist only to be slaughtered in tried and trusted "last man standing" fashion. Given that you know this from the outset, there is little suspense here.

I suppose, if you are aware of its limitations from the outset, there's nothing too much wrong with it. But there's nothing particularly wonderful about it either.

Dead Space Downfall reduces its space horror aesthetic to a chunk of unpolished planetary rock.

Back when Electronic Arts released the original 'Dead Space', I happened to download and install the demo. A thirty minute segment that highlighted the darkened horror and survivalist gameplay mechanics. That, well, was enough for me. Far too frightening and involving for me. So when I heard an animated prequel was released, my intrigue once again spiked and perhaps would illicit a fresh wave of adoration for the video game franchise. Sadly, it did the opposite, deterring me away from the games forever. A planetary flight crew discover an extraterrestrial monolithic marker that rapidly turn members into homicidal nightmarish creatures, meaning the remaining individuals must fight to survive.

Thus begins the enduring battle against the animalistic Necromorphs. Yet beneath the blood covering the crevices of the Ishimura and the mundane brutality of limbs being severed, is an undercooked plot circling around faith. Followers of the Church of Unitology demanding to see the newly acquired holy relic, devotees oblivious to the chaotic harm that it has caused. Religious persecution, if you will.

However the writers chose to subdue this interesting strand and instead incorporated a thirty minute montage of crew members being savaged by Necromorphs through some of the most bland, stilted and downright dreadful animation available. Over-textured blurry 3D CGI monstrosities that forced me to question if I had my spectacles on or not, never complementing the basic 2D character designs. The original 'Scooby Doo' series looked better than this, a cartoon created decades ago! The characters themselves had no personality injected into them and instead emanated hard talking shells. "Fight...or die!". "I'm not a hero, just a man!". The voice acting was nearly as tedious as a Bible reading powered by the emotionless tones of Tommy Wiseau. The blood, whilst insurmountable in terms of quantity, was too excessive and tame to be effective.

If it wasn't for the overburden of paranoia, mass hysteria and delusional grandeur, which can be contributing factors for deep space travel, this animated prequel would have nothing going for it. It's just an 'Alien' ripoff, and about as dead as the animators' sense for artistic quality. Just play the game instead.
