IGN has taken an early look at pretty much every version of EA's Dead Space remake, from the Xbox Series X and PS5 versions right through to how the game runs on Xbox Series S, and even Steam Deck.
The Xbox Series S version misses out on ray tracing here - as is becoming pretty common for the system. However, that doesn't appear to matter too much, as the outlet recommends using the performance mode on Xbox Series X and PS5, and that mode doesn't include ray tracing anyway.
The Xbox Series X version does appear to pull ahead of the PS5 using that performance mode as well, with the 60FPS option appearing a great way to play Dead Space on Microsoft's flagship Xbox console.
Disappointingly, Xbox Series S misses out on any sort of performance mode right now. In pre-launch review code, the game would run unlocked on Xbox Series S — providing a wildly varying frame rate as shown — but since launch the game has had a 30FPS lock put in place.
All in all, this looks like a solid remake from a technical perspective, even if we'd like to see more options for Xbox Series S users. The remake certainly ages the original Dead Space's visuals though - as you can see from this video's brief look at the 2008 classic as well!
