The game was a lot more fun that I expected. I been going down my list of games that I been having a mild interest in. I usually don't buy games like this because they have zero replay value and I still believe this one doesn't have much replay value but for a rent... I highly recommend playing it. I didn't finish the game but just the 2 to 3 hours I got into it was a lot of fun... If it was in the used rack for like 10 to 15 bucks later down the road I would pick it up for my collection and some day get around to finishing it.
This game falls just short of being amazing, because of 3 reasons. They replaced the Power Node system with a really stupid system where circuits have a set power, you don't get to choose what the point goes to. The 2nd reason is the crafting system, because honestly, it feels very stupid, and not like a dead space game. Lastly, this game falls short of not enough horror and too much action. There were probably only 2 sequences in which I couldn't predict a jumpscare, and actually felt scared walking down a hallway or in an elevator. So my final conclusion is an 8/10, but beware, if you are a hardcore dead space fan, you will hate this game for plaguing the franchise, but if you are a newcomer, than I would recommend playing this/
