Engineer Isaac Clarke and his crew get stranded on a large, abandoned mining ship. There, Clarke needs to repair the giant ship while battling nasty aliens and solving the mystery of what happened to the ship.
Bears a resemblance to the sci-fi/horror series Alien. The creatures in both franchises use human bodies as their means of propagation. The titular Alien is referred to as a Xenomorph, in dead space they are Necromorphs. The aliens in both seem to come from/be an ancient race who designed the creatures as weapons to destroy entire civilizations. And in both series many prominent scientists/politicians and religious figures want to use the creatures for their own ends.
Dr. Terrence Kyne:
God works in mysterious ways.
Whenever the player immolates a Necromorph with the flamethrower, the creature will be set ablaze, but will suddenly become dismembered rather then get charred and dehydrated.
