    I'm 100% sure that I got this game for free on origin many years ago, but it then dissapeared from "my games" library. Now its free again, oh welll

    I would have grabbed it for free, had it been on Steam.

    Got it added to my Origin account for a rainy day.

    Saying that i only open my origin app on the odd occasion.

    Steam FTW.

    Interesting - Dead Space was one of the first games EA gave away when they started their "On the House" program. Have they already run out of games to give away?
    Either way, it's still a nice gesture. Dead Space is a great game.

    Some of that sound vaguely familiar to me. Overall I remember it played perfectly fine for me, albeit, I played it at 1080p@60Hz. In terms of shoddy console ports, I'd say this game is definitely on the better half.

    - No in game AF
    - Terrible in game AA
    - 30fps with vsync on
    - Game breaking bugs with vsync off
    - Mouse acceleration that cannot be disabled in game
    - Huge dead zones for controllers
    - Can't rebind most buttons in game

    That is a pretty big list. EA could easily fix all of that considering most of the issues have been fixed by fans already. If you are going to give it away to promote your DRM it should at least be supported a little. Lots of other companies support older titles and keep them working well since they still sell them.

    By "AF" do you mean anisotropic filtering, or autofocus? Because if the former, the game doesn't really need it that much (it's really only practical for long distances, which the game has very little of) and I personally hate autofocus.
    It's been a while since I've played it, but I don't remember having vsync issues. I likely did at first and just disabled it. I don't remember tearing being an issue, either.
    I also don't remember having problems with mouse acceleration - I overall aimed pretty well in the game.
    I never used the gamepad so no comment on that.

    And yet it so easy to force driver level Vsync and game isnt locked to 30 fps.
    So easy to force AA through driver, and same for AF. And driver level AF looks way better in most games then in game AF anyways.
    Mouse Accelerations, yea that is a viable complaint.
    Dead zones issues for controllers. I dont have that with a 360 controller or using a DS4 on bluetooth on my pc with Dead Space.
    Cant rebind most controls, yes that is a stupid issue.

    So honestly you are really being a whine bag about the AA, AF, and Vsync.

    The same already happened to me! I had an Origin account with some really cool freebies, Syndicate, Theme Hospital, C&C Red Alert and others and after a while they all disappeared without any trace...

    As for Dead Space, it´s a great game, so great i´ve the boxed version, so no need for it free.

    Bought this long time ago and was also given it as a gift but after changing my system a few times but having the game on a separate hd Origin decided to invalidate both game keys and now i cant even get it as a free game.

    I have this game on Steam, it is pretty borked but you can fix most of it with some free utilities if you want to take the time to fix it. After fixing it it works really well and is the definitive version. Love this game one of my favorites. Have the 360 and ps3 version also.

    This might help some people: http://steamcommunity.com/app/17470...dding or Configuration&requiredtags[]=English
