Make sure to play. Good graphics. Decent voice acting. Great music, really makes good ambiance. The story is good almost as good as the first. Had a few scares but nothing like the first Dead Space. Action is predictable and you do a lot of go and fetch. My only real issue is the running around in circles at times. Parts of it had me just running through areas to stop the tedium. Load times are acceptable but you do go through many doors. I had no issues with glitches but up close combat is visually problematic. I would have played even if I knew of all issues. I played single player but can see where coop would be fun and make it worth playing again. Well worth playing and I only listed issues so others could be informed. Very enjoyable.
I got to say that i am a bit dissapointed in this sequel. suprisingly the co op which was the thing that everyone was worried would destroy the game wasnt the actual death blow. in fact co op made it more enjoyable. i say that it made it more enjoyable because the games become less horror and more third person shooter. while there are some jump scenes they do not come close to dead space 2 or 1. I do not recommend playing single player because then it just feels lonley without the eerie ambience of the others. overall
gameplay= still great and tight with the same mechanics, the gun making addition is the best thing put into this one.
Online= usually i hate online gaming but co op on this was alot more fun then going solo.
Ambiance= with the exclusion of a few levels this is not the scare filled game of the past. There is no paranoia poking at your nerves like me and many others have enjoyed before.
Graphics = still great graphics and details, no bad remarks here. especially when you reach the snow zones.
I overall would recommend this to people that are tired of fearing the necromorphs and just want to blow them away. If your looking for scares and paranoia then get dead space 2 instead.
