A well done Dead Space gamegforcesa | Dec. 28, 2013 | See all gforcesa's reviews »
I love all the Dead Space games but this one is one of my favorites.It has co-op, which means you can play with a friend and get scared while doing so.The horror is still there but, not as much as the first one.The main character is again Isaac Clarke and if you play co-op the other person will play as John Carver.Visceral Games have told a good story with this game.The game's story is ok as well as the previous ones.The gameplay mechanics are about the same as the other games but in this one there is a workbench in which you can assemble your own weapon, of course you have to find those parts through out the game.The other thing is that there are side quests that you could do and earn some money or get a new part for a weapon.The story has some awesome twists that are well done.I would recommend to pick up the game considering it's price at the moment.

I've been waiting for it for a good while. After finishing all the story and most side quests i got to say that it felt different then the previous games. It was still horror style that never went away but it focused more on action against human npcs as well something that was not in the first game and rare in the second. Also i don't recommend playing the game first on co op because it sure does ruin the horror aspect of the game. The crafting system was a great idea but the universal ammo was disappointing. Part of the fun from the previous games was to run out of ammo for your favorite gun only to be forced to use something you were not that comfortable with adding to the tension. Overall it's a good game but not as stellar as the previous ones.

Compared to the first game, Dead Space 3 is a more fast-paced and crazy-packed kind of horror experience. You move in open environments, although you are still being attacked by beings worse than anything you can imagine. I really appreciate the whole weapon upgrade system in here, when you finally get some idea as to how it works.

The third chapter of the epic sci-fi horror is here, this time is set on an icy planet Tau Volantis and for the first time you can play with your friends against the Necromorph and Unitology nightmare! Many people says they killed the core of Dead Space, I think Visceral just changed a few things. Some get better, some weird. The game feels bigger and more epic, the main campaign much longer and we got optional missions. Which can be done or not, it doesn't effect the main line, but gives a few fragment to the big picture. Plus you can stash new pieces for your arsenal. The new bench function is a real asset to the game. You can build various type of weapons or simply mod the existing ones. Fire, electricity, acid, blades, saw blade, you name it. And you need it, because these Necros a bit tougher, faster and more dangerous then ever. You can search for loots, use the small bot to collect resources. Just to be straight about the DLC thing: you don't need to buy ANY DLC, if you don't want. You can buy resource pack with in-game credits called ration seals. That "credit" collected by your bot and you can buy multiple packs for free in a single playthrough. The other DLCs are bot upgrades or personality pack or new weapons-armors. The gameplay is changed a bit too, Isaac and Carver now can do barrel roll and climb up and down in ladder - like in Mass Effect 3. You can't earn or find credits, only resource and you can make or upgrade weapons via parts or blueprint. It's much more complex now, just like the mini-games and puzzles in-game. And here you will feel this game is setup to co-op, however you can still manage to finish it alone, just it's more challenging. Playing with another player it's much more fun. Plus it also gives new cut-scenes and lines. Feels different when you play alone, you play co-op as Isaac, you play co-op as Carver. There's 3 special mission which only be can done co-op! That missions only reveals Carver pasts and character, you miss nothing, if you play alone. The graphics looks stunning, even if it's run the same PC config as the first game back in 2008. Not use DirectX 11 or PhysX, but still looks great. The facial expression and cut-scenes are top notch again, just like the voice-acting. The sounds and music are masterpiece. Strong, loud and scary. Gives a bit older feeling then previous games, since the space stations and technology are older this time. And the game has 4 game modes. You can play the normal game mode co-op or alone and changing 4 difficulty from Easy to Impossible. There's a NewGame+ for it. There's Classic Mode which can only played alone and no fancy weapon upgrades, it's similar to previous Dead Space gameplay. We got a Pure Survival mode, where you will not find any medkit or ammo, just resource! And finally the Harcore mode, where you can do anything, save, find medkit and ammo, but if you die game over, you must start the game from the beginning,
What's the problem with Dead Space 3? Well, it's different not that scary, you can play with your friend and the weapons use the same ammo. But the game much longer then previous ones, has a great weapon benching feature and the various game modes gives a great replayability. If you own the previous games or like sci-fi games you can't miss Dead Space 3.
Dead space 3 is greatrjb789 | Sept. 24, 2013 | See all rjb789's reviews »
This game is brilliant. The atmosphere continues to to steal the show as the icy planet provides a perfect backdrop for the story to unfold. The graphics are gorgeous and really makes the game shine. The combat is also punchy and responsive. My only problem is the absence of scares, the games just didnt make me jump like the first two did. In short, if you are after a less horror based game get this one out of the dead space series.
