How many chapters does Dead Space have?

I've been told six, but that seems kind of short.

I believe 11 or so? Feel free to give the correct answer, whoever knows.

Edit: Then again, technically it's all just one big level considering you never leave the ship! :D

the game is lengthy . something like BioShock But of course there are some back tracking elements as well .

I've heard the game is a 6 hour game stretched into a 12 hour game due to backtracking. I am not sure about the number of chapters and I actually didn't even know it was broken up into "chapters".

I heard 12 chapters. Surely backtracking doesn't occupy a full 6 hours though?!

12 chapters

and what is this backtracking ( i know what the word means )?

yeah 12....and I really don't mind the backtracking...at least it makes sense in the story

Yeah it's 12, and it's not backtracking as much as it is revisiting past areas you have been to complete different objectives.

If people are considering this to have a lot of backtracking, maybe they need to go back and look at the beloved Castlevania: SOTN again.  This game doesn't have nearly that much backtracking, and they always find a way to mix it up and make it interesting when you ARE going back somewhere.

Armstrong is easily obtained at any point.
There are more environmental hazards for the ragdoll check later on.
Can you unlock Brad's voice in Dead Space? Because I'm sure fighting the monsters with your equipped Brad-dom voice would tear the limbs off of your enemies just as easily as a fully upgraded Line Gun.
