It comes back to the question of, “How can you argue with five dollars?” Dead Space Ignition isn’t bad, but it’s a totally mediocre experience. So it’s not a question of the price, but rather how valuable your time is. Even for hardcore Dead Space fans (which we are), skipping Ignition will mean missing nothing of import to the Dead Space canon. The one thing fans may not want to miss is the special suit you can earn for Isaac that will be useable in Dead Space 2, but until that game comes out, we won’t know what that suit does or if it’s worth getting.
