All Dead Space Graphics Settings – Differences

Hmm, pretty or performance?

Probably the most noticeable difference between the original and the Dead Space Remake is that 15 years is a long time when it comes to graphics and the tech behind them. The Dead Space remake is absolutely stunning in terms of graphical fidelity and just how much has been added in terms of object density, enemies, lighting, and more. However, there is a critical graphics setting to consider, especially if you're playing on a console.

Dead Space Remake Video Settings Options

For consoles, there is one setting to pay attention to: Performance Mode. When Performance Mode is turned on, the game will automatically reduce resolution and visual quality to 60fps. Should this option be disabled, Dead Space will look better but is subject to frame rate drops.

In our time playing the game, we didn't notice anything in the way of frame rate drops, lag, stuttering, or similar issues with Performance Mode off. Conversely, we did notice the resolution and visual quality dropped considerably with Performance Mode on. It made the game look downright awful in some instances, and we yearned to be playing it on PC where we could have the best of both worlds. That being said, if you're on a console as well, don't be afraid to turn Performance Mode off. Otherwise, if you're looking for more Isaac Clarke in pretty games, nab him in Fortnite.
