8/10 for visuals, sounds and gameplay all solid and Isaac seems even more of a fleshed out character rather than a means for the narrative to move along.
-1 for weak story with very few boss fights though most of the game.
-1 for having to fix absolutely EVERYTHING you find in your path and having to ride 35+ elevators slowly.
You’re an engineer and the game makes sure you know that; fix this, ride elevator, fix that, ride it again, fix this and that ride it again…with a few squads of Necromorphs every couple of minutes of progression.
The new weapon and rig system is actually pretty nice and crafting can be interesting but it is sad you have to harvest metals like a mad man and stomp everything for goodies.
I remember first hearing about Dead Space 3 having co-op and being immediately turned off to the game and thinking it would be a major letdown. Boy could I have been more wrong. This game was absolutely incredible. As a big fan of the previous two games, I can say that this game fits right in with the first two as a VERY solid addition. I couldn't possibly be more satisfied and I really hope they make a 4th one and bring back all the characters.
