As if the classic survival horror title, Dead Space couldn’t get any better, modders had to go and add some fantastic mods to help either clean the game up a bit with visuals or add some entirely new content on their own. So, today we’re going to be listing off what we think are the best mods that players can get their hands on. Here are the 10 best mods for Dead Space (2008)!

10 Best Mods for Dead Space (2008)

Elite Suit DLC

Starting off our list is the wonderful Elite Suit DLC mod that adds the exclusive skin that players were only able to receive if they had purchased DLC for Xbox. Now, you don’t have to!

Dead Space 100 Complete Save

For those who either want a full spread of everything the game has to offer from the start or maybe those who lost their save file, the Dead Space 100 Complete Save mod gives you everything you want and more.

Dead Space – HD Suits – Reshade – FOV

If you’re looking for better visuals all around in Dead Space, consider downloading the Dead Space HD Suits, Reshade, and FOV mod. This gives players better textures, as well as better reshade presets, and an even clearer field of view.

Bloody Suit Collection – Retexture

It’s time to get messy. The Bloody Suit Collection gives Isaac a new gruesome look for his level 1 through 4 suits. This one is a personal fave.

Darker Space

Dead Space could always be darker to give it an even scary vibe. So the best mod for this one is Darker Space. It’s basically a reshading mod that blackens shadowy things to the extreme.

Dead Space Holiday

For those that like festive cheer, try checking out the Dead Space Holiday mod. This mod gives retextures to many things within the game, including some suits for Isaac.

Alone in Space – Reshade

The Alone in Space – Reshade mod is yet another reshading piece of content, though this one is different. Instead of focusing on darkness or better visuals, this one has an emphasis on color and sharpness for perception. It’s very stylistic in approach.

Mouse and Controls Fix

To put it bluntly, the keyboard and mouse controls stink for Dead Space. Luckily, the Mouse and Controls Fix mod remedies this with a better layout and makes the game just feel more responsive overall.

Ultimate Vision for Dead Space

Though the Ultimate Vision for Dead Space mod includes reshaders, this is one of those “from the ground up” sort of mods, giving the entire game a needed facelift.

DMG’s Suits and Weapons Overhaul

Last but certainly not least is the DMG’s Suits and Weapons Overhaul mod. This is one of the best because it makes the outfits that all characters wear look a bit more different in contrast to each other. This makes the game seem like there’s a bit more nuance to it all.
