Dead Space is a sci-fi survival horror game developed by EA Redwood Shores. You are playing as Isaac Clarke, an engineer stuck in the interstellar mining ship together with reanimated beings that once were human, Necromorphs. Fight your way through the starship infested with beings that adapt to your every move. Providing one of the entities with a headshot won't work, thus the game presents you with a mechanic called "strategic dismemberment", to stop the freaks, you must cut their arms, legs, and heads! Immortal doesn't mean unstoppable!
