As a huge Deadspace 1 fan (played it through on the PC), i was really disappointed with Deadspace 2, it didn't have the same 'scare' factor for me and was way too arcadey.
Might have just been because its the first game I bought on my PS3 and i am new to the whole console genre but still.

They need to use the confined, claustrophobic tunnels and corridors that they had in the original. Its meant to be a scary, tense horror game: not a wild'em'ride'em'shoot'em'up blastfest like the second one was,

please NO!..
the current Dead Space engine works and looks brilliant. Why not just improve on that? Now i dont know what Engine its based on. But FrostBite doesnt look that good for the specs it needs.

Understandable that next year every gaming PC will meet the requirments by then.

Engine doesnt matter...but some destructive environments in ships would be nice!
ds2 was good, and if they will continue or improve uppon the isac clarkes story that would be quite interesting too.

The lighting improvements alone would make it worth the change. The Visceral engine is quite old and it's limited in a lot of ways compared to Frostbite 2. I'm confident that Dead Space 3 will have better lighting, animations, and destruction (which is a much-needed feature).

Trust me. Im not saying it just because of that.
Let me explain it.

Have you played Max Payne 2? its a 3rd person shooter. I love the controls of the game. Thats all because of the engine mostly. GTA4 doesnt play like that.

Same with Games like. Assassins Creed. They play great!.. (not performance wise) i am talking about the way controls and movements work.

Then comes Dead Space 2. Its right there with Batman AC. The controls are spot on in DS2. I know this for a fact. If they make the move to FB2.0 the controls will change a bit. And thats one thing i really loved about the game..

If they can keep the controls and movements stuff intact. Then im all in for it!. But just take a look what FB2.0 did to NFS the RUN. i dont want it to do that to other games. All thanks to EA btw.

I purchased DS2 from Origin costing a staggering £4.99 which is just insane. The game itself is one of the most frightening games that I have ever played. I was scared Cough! Unfortunately due to profanity laws I cannot state what I was feeling but you understand. I only discovered this morning that DS3 was on the horizon with a probable release of Q2 or Q3 2012 depending on the pace of development. The fact that they’re using Frostbite 2.0 Engine is ever better news, does this mean we’ll be able to blow everything up because the physics in Frostbite 2.0 Engine are just insane.

It depends on how much destruction they allow. The destruction isn't the only thing to look forward to. The Frostbite 2 engine will allow for better lighting effects and animations.

one of the things Frostbite do amazingly well is lightning, a thing this game may benefit a lot from

Everything saturated with bloom isn't really "amazing" if you ask me - every single Frostbite game I've seen so far has been a retina burning exercise.

+1. If DS3 is like DS2 I'll be skipping it.

I loved DS1, but DS2 is probably the only game I've ever bought that I haven't bothered finishing.

It is an excellent engine I bet Dead Space would look awesome using it.

Aw man! Well now I've really got to sit down and run through DS1 and DS2. My DS2 is still in its packaging! I told myself that I can't play it until I've finished 1, but I need to completely restart DS1 now.

Same here. I liked DS1 but I guess I'd just rather be playing other stuff :/
