Great game. I would say it is the best in the series. It is definitely longer than any of the other installments.
Story is great. There are more things going on in this installment, and more characters involved, which is good. But, still lacked depth and no emotion conveyed. I mean, there is emotion and sentiment, but the kind of the likes of Sly Stone in 'Rocky'
Graphics are amazing. The sound quality is too notch. The story is really good. I am confused, still, to the first prologue part of the game, to the extent to not knowing why it was there to begin with.
Customizing weapons was better than ever, but still lacked majorly. You are not really creating weapons, you are more so, creating 'tools' which, 3 games in, Issac should know that he is going to need more than a rivet gun to battle Necros. Where is the minigun? Especially in this version, there are mercs that are teamed with Issac which should have made it more versatile with tools/weapons. I tried nearly every possibility put just stuck with the same weapon the entire game.
Biggest issues are that it is very repetitive and it i too one-directional. You have the whole universe more or less on your shoulders, but you are directed in such a linear path that it makes it unrealistic... speaking of unrealistic, there are too many times in DS3 that are too unreal, to the point that it is gimmicky. Issac is just a man, not the man of steel... if you've played the game, you understand, if you haven't you'll get it.
Anyways. All-in-all. Great game. I got tired of the repetitiveness and towards the end of the game, I just wanted it to be over and was exhausted of looking for items, artifacts, and weapon upgrades.

This is a long departure from the original Dead Space. It is not a survival/horror type game. This is a third person shooter all the way. I played for an hour before I returned it to Gamefly. The characters are boring and the fighting is extremely clunky. The music of the game is dull and sound fx are nothing to remember. But I think I am jaded by the original game. A newer generation gamer who hasn't played the first one would like this game.
