360, PS3 

EA changed their portfolio this fall to include not only sequels, but brand new ambitious and original IPs.  Dead Space's space survival horror meets action game offers quite a bit to keep players entertained.  The production values of this title are high, and the in game interface is something I hope to see replicated in many titles moving forward.  And while this is a horror title, it keens a bit more towards action.  Sure you'll jump in your seat from time to time, but the moments are a bit predictable.  By the time the story culminates you may be a bit tired of some of the mechanics like shooting apart enemies limbs or constantly hitting up stores to upgrade your player.  This doesn't mean it's not a wild and worthy ride from start to finish, there's just a few asteroids you have to overcome along the way.
