How is Dead Space?

I'm thinking about going into the series, and I was wondering which one of the entries is best and if there are any that should be passed. If I do pass any, would I miss out on the story quite a bit? Thanks

all 3 are the best IMO but its best to start from 1 2 3.

There are 3. 4 is you count ignition which is a go between of one and two. Only played demo of 3 but liked it. One was very well done. 2 was good, and I say good because the mp was meh. 3 has co op story mode.

I hate horror games but I loved Dead Space. Start with 1, it was better than 2 and the story won't make sense otherwise.

It's definitely a great series. I would recommend going in order, because you can unlock stuff by playing the previous game in the series.

Deadspace one was a chore for me to finish...something kept pushing me on to complete it idk. It wasn't scary to I wasn't in line for deadspace 2

I recently got interested in DS3 because of the co-op...but idk

DS1 is excellent, but they get progressively worse. DS2 at least manages to retain the atmosphere of the first one. DS3 was a disaster.

geez I'm looking around and DS1 on disc isn't cheap for an old game. On-demand is actually the cheapest place for 15$ but no disc...

I love it & think its awesome...
But like previous posters have mentioned, if you do get the series, start in order. The story will make more sense that way.
