Was the original dead space demo really that bad?

Why was it so crappy? I bought the game without playing the demo :p

It just threw you into a death zone without really telling you what to do. If you didn't run around to Find weapons you were screwed. I seem to remember dying from a countdown of some sort... I do remember thinking It was a terrible demo to try to get to buy the game.

yeah i remember it threw you into a point that was half way through the game. It went over how to shoot, use secondary fire, then went straight into a hellish fight.

I remember hating the demo so much i refused to buy the game. I only ended up playing it because it was a birthday gift, and I enjoyed it infinitely more than I expected.

Yeah I remember the demo and it didn't stop me from buying the game day 1.

The demo completely turned me off the game. After hearing some good things, I eventually picked up the game for $20 when I was pre-ordering something else. I fell in love with the Dead Space series from that point on.

was it the DS1 or DS2 demo that after a hellish fight you open a door and just get murdered to end the demo?
