Fair

Sad end to the Trilogy

The first Dead Space was awesome. This final rendition of the trilogy was a distant watered down version. The cover system felt very forced, and the combat was obnoxiously repetitive. I am wiping my hands of the Dead Space realm, and I wish that wasn't the case. There was a lot of potential with this series.

This game is just pretty awesome right from the get go. The graphics are sweet and the game play is pretty smooth. I love the storyline thus far, i've put about 9 hours into the game so far and i can't find much i don't like about it so far.
TPS games are always a step up in my book, they usually get either a 9 or 10 rating. I just got done playing Far Cry 3 and i thought it was pretty awesome for FPS, but this game is just leaps and bounds ahead.
Great job Visceral games, this game is a definite buy.
If you like DS1 and DS2, you'll definetly love this installment as well.

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.
