Just finished a quick playthrough.

The best Dead space games in its series imo :)

But haven't had a chance for co-op

So this review is based on solo experience.


Still bloody , gory and exciting every moment from the beginning until the end.

Hope this will help those of you who haven't tried this game yet :rolleyes:

If it's better than Dead Space 2 Im happy.

I liked the first one, I loved the second one. If the third one is better then that's saying something.

I loved Dead Space 1 & 2, played them through multiple times but I found Dead Space 3 boring. Completed it (including the long repetitive side missions) but I doubt I'll play it again.

I haven't played DS 1 and 2, so I have nothing to go on. Only annoying thing to me is having to bash the Hell out of the "E" button at times. But the game is OK.

I played DS 1 and 2 and something about this one stands out a lot. I dont really like the new weapon system. I am able to hold only 2 weapons at a time?? Like wtf. I feel like the monsters just gang rape me every corner I take. Just the current weapons feel weaker compare to the ones from Dead space 1 and 2.. :(

From what i can garner from most reviews, the game has exchanged some of its Horror feel for RPG. The IGN review, for example, emphasized how all the collecting and upgrading mechanics made the reviewer want to pump up Isaac to be a powerhouse, which really takes the "survivial" out of a survival-horror game.

Watched a livestream earlier of the game and it just looks like a mix of Doom 3 and Lost Planet. I guess the crafting could be cool to see what weapons you can come up with but I don't think it would have any real affect on the game, to be honest.

I love the Dead Space series, and I've played though them all ... but something about DS3 disappointed me.

I think it's the best of Dead Space series. I love its climate, but i have to admit that I liked previous storylines more.

Gawd does every game lately need to have these annoying minigames to open locked doors ? It just slows everything down to a crawl.

That said It looks as good as ever no issue with the bare bones pc version.

Haven't completed it yet but my thoughts so far

Firstly... the weapons... seriously?!?! it feels as if all have been deliberately gimped to encourage people to pay for materials to upgrade them. The line cutter particularly has had it's rate of fire cut significantly which is just trashy in my opinion.

Secondly...
Spoiler


Thirdly...
Spoiler


Graphics... Given that it was a lazy console port surprisingly impressive

Gameplay... apart from the gimping of the weapons about as good as it was in the previous games.

So far, it's a mixed bag for me but by no means terrible. But EA, PLEASE stop gimping your games to sell DLC. It's not on.

I didn't enjoy that door minigame thing either. But at least there was some variety in it.

I too recently finished the game. The good thing is its rather long compared to most games these days.

At first I didn't like change in weapon/suit upgrade mechanic, but you are in a far away place with no credits or power nodes so it does make sense and ties with the story neatly. What I found is that first 3/4 of the game you lack materials and then you just don't need them anymore since you already have best weapon selected...or gotten used to one.
Line cutter was nice in previous games and here it felt useless once red eyed monster appeared.

Still I am quite eager for than new dlc soon.
