Best dead space yet

The only 2 issues I have with this game are this: completely dumb love triangle and not enough horror sequences. Dead Space 4 should not try to expand the scope of the universe, it should condense it, maybe a non-issac horror story. I just don't want it to get too big and action based that it loses its magic.

With that said, this was the best game in the series. The environments (space, frozen planet, mountains, etc) were top notch. Issacs character is well developed as an imperfect hero. Carver's character is a great addition to balance Issac's. The overall story was well constructed with very few pointless missions. Optional missions helped tell the complete story (maybe they should make a game based solely on the SCAF).

The weapons customization was good but slightly flawed. As soon as I got the grenade launcher, everything else seemed under-powered. You can still use the other weapons well and the combinations are truly innovative. Maybe in the next game they will make the rig highly customizable.

It took about 15 hours to beat on hard, so probably not worth buying. And the only DLC I think might be worth buying is the bot additional resources. I bought the bot accelorator and it is not useful. Overall, Dead Space 3 is a great game to play in a cold month.

Overview
==================
I've played each of the Dead Space games and this was actually my favorite. Not all would agree, but I actually found the story more coherent than the previous two games.

The game was very polished and still had a good balance between action and horror. The biggest complaint is the repetitive fetch errands you do throughout the game.

Pros
================
1) great graphics (some of the best this gen)
2) solid code (saw very few bugs or frame rate issues)
3) good story as far as dead space goes

Cons
================
1) repetitive
2) need online code to play co-op

I see a alot of these reviews saying the story lacks in this one, but I would disagree. Sure sometimes the story strays, but don't be fooled this was a great great game. Less Scary? Maybe, but I think by now we know what to expect scare wise. This is a must play. The only negative is that you have to buy the game if you want to play online Co-op which I think would have been a lot of fun.
