Less horror and more actionInsaneHien | Jan. 5, 2014 | See all InsaneHien's reviews »
Dead Space 3 is not a bad game, but it isn't the best in the series. For a series known for it's survival horror elements, I thought this one was disappointing to the fans, but I did find this one as fun as the first two games. If this is your first time playing the Dead Space games, you will most likely enjoy this one.
The gameplay hasn't changed much, but it adds crafting and scavenging for parts. These part are used to create new weapons. I thought this was well done by Visceral, so good job on that. They also added co-op which is also a nice addition, although I've never tried it yet. The graphics look great as usual although it doesn't look like it hasn't improved.
Although it's not the best in the series, I would say Dead Space 3 is worth playing.
Not as great but still fun!Xillion | Sept. 29, 2013 | See all Xillion's reviews »
After finishing the whole game, I found Dead Space 3 to be a disappointment.The horror was not as it used to be. I still found this game to be somewhat fun. I'm glad they added a co-op option to the game so you can play with your friends but i wish they just fixed the story and horror. Players who are new to the dead space series will definitely enjoy this but on the other hand this proves to be a disappointment to players who have played Dead Space 1 & 2. Honestly, Dead Space 3 is still worth trying out.
Horror is gone, but you can bring a friend!Zilly01 | Sept. 20, 2013 | See all Zilly01's reviews »
Dead Space 3 brings a new weapon crafting system and coop to the franchise. Most of the horror of the game is gone, but that is partially expected since the character has experienced necromorphs several times now. While the weapon crafting system is neat, most of the weapons are useless. A machine gun and rocket launcher will carry you through almost anything, which goes against the story saying normal weapons are not as effective as plasma tools since they excel at severing limbs. The coop is a lot of fun, but I don't understand why they put all of the hallucinations scenes onto Carver. I get that Isaac has accepted Nicole's death, but he seems almost immune to them now except for when he has visions on what the markers do. The game is fun, but I don't think it compares to the 2nd game.
Good but a little disappointingcrazywink | Aug. 21, 2013 | See all crazywink's reviews »
This game was honestly a little disappointing. I had played both Dead Space and Dead Space 2 and was looking forward to this new one in the series, but something wasn't all there. The graphics however have improved quite a bit and by the end of the game some of the scenes are absolutely beautiful! Good game, especially if you haven't played the other two.
Great game, but kind of ditches Horror for more ActionUndeadAura | Aug. 13, 2013 | See all UndeadAura's reviews »
I loved this game, but the horror is nowhere near as scary as Dead Space 1. It took the action route with some horror thrown in. The game plays really great and the story is amazing. They left the ending with a major cliffhanger though, so hopefully we'll see another installment!
Some parts of the story are pretty scary and demented, you can definently tell this is a Dead Space game! The co-op is very interesting too! While the host is Isaac, the second player is another man Isaac meets. They did something really interesting too, in certain parts of the co-op campaign you get different experiences based on which character you are playing. The base story is there, but it gives more background to the characters.
All in all, I highly recommend this game to a fan of the series, even if you've never played a Dead Space game, you might feel left out for the first while of the game, but anything important eventually gets covered further in.
