Lets face it, sequels now a days just not delivering that awesome game to us anymore. Plenty of times we have said "the last game was so much better." Well, in the case of Dead Space 3, this is not whats going on.
This installment into the Dead Space series has set a new bar. From adding weapon building/modding, to a new and improved environment where the Necromorphs still roam the halls.
The game does more and then more on top of that. Gameplay and gameplay mechanics are still the same from the last game. Very fluid and easy to jump right in. Graphics are the same as the last one, so don't expect anything like Cysis. With that being said, the game still shows the excellent quality and dedication from the developing team at Visceral Games. The new features of gun modding and crafting is a definite plus when it comes to destroying some Necromorphs. At times you will be finding yourself in a corner pinned down with an incoming group of Necromorphs. The combination of attachments on the weapon can either make or break a situation like that one.
The game itself is great. The story keeps the player entertained and the new features does as well. It also contains little to no bugs while playing the game. Pun intended.
There is a few draw backs.
The replay value. While Dead Space 2 had the mulitplayer with hours upon hours of playing, this game decided to go along with the co-op and skip out on it this time. To some, this is an extreme disappointment, but soon will forget all about it. Just play the game in another difficulty while waiting for the DLC. The horror and suspense factor has also been drawn down a bit. When a Necromorph ran past the screen and nothing happened for about 10 minutes, this was a great feature, but doesn't happen as much in the new game. So, this is more of an action game than horror/suspenseful.
Without the mulitplayer, this game would have received a 10, but is definitely a good buy for anyone

The graphics, sound & atmosphere will amaze you & must have taken a countless amount of work to achieve. Most importantly the game is a blast. It just feels huge & epic & it remains dark, scary & tense while adding in a bit more action, better controls & a better pace. I find it to be a perfect blend & without comparing it to other Dead Space games it's just a great game. For me it still feels totally like Dead Space & I hope they continue the franchise.
