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.

Although at first this game can seem like a classic third-person shooter, soon proves to be a survival horror to which we were accustomed. This time will also change the setting, in fact we will fight no more about spaceships, but rather 'on a real planet full of Necromorphs. Were added very interesting news: complete customization of many weapons, and finding the right components can even be created. The ammunition, this time will be of a single type, compatible with every weapon at our disposal. In addition to customizing and creating weapons, you can change and enhance our suit. On the downside, there is the poor enemy AI and the "transactions" (possibility to buy upgrades with real money, weapons and new suits) totally insignificant. Dead space 3 is certainly an excellent title, which does not break completely from the genus to which we had become accustomed. A game not to pass absolutely, both fans of the series, both those who want to feel strong emotions.
Worth it. Just because of weapon making system!InBu | Aug. 24, 2013 | See all InBu's reviews »
This game is actually playable only in coop i never played singleplayer because my friend told me that this game is dissapointing for Dead Space veterans, but i enjoyed playing it in coop. You actually play the same singleplayer story with couple of side missions. This game was awsome in one specific parameter - weapon making, it's aweome in game and you will enjoy making new weapons.Overall this game has nice graphics and physics. If you buy this game make sure you have friend to play it with or atleast find someone online. I reccomend playing it with firends because you will get best expierince in this way. It's dissapointing that this game is not on steam, but atleast it's not expensive.
