There are plenty of different strategies you can use for fighting due to the wide variety of weapon custimizations you can apply. Good graphics and a decent playthrough time to keep you busy. If you are the perfectionist type and would like to make your character the most BA there are plenty of playthrough+ options. I would highly recommend playing the first 2 in the series before starting this one

This game just seemed very off to me, even from the very beginning. There is now a huge selection of very creative and fun weapons to kill off the necromorphs with, but EA ruined it by allowing microtransactions. Most of the weapons are impossible to create, build, and discover since EA wants you to buy it from the store.
The survival horror concept of the previous dead space's is gone. I started this game on hard difficulty and died only several times. I always had plenty of healthpacks and ammo, which is a downfall for me since it's supposed to be scary and be a survival game.
The graphics, physics, voices are all the same, which is good since it was all well done in the previous DS's.
I'm a little disappointed in the new necromorphs, they aren't as scary and some of them are very annoying. Also it seems like shooting off the limbs got harder, but maybe it was because I played on hard difficulty.
I got bored quickly in this game unlike the others in which I kept wanting to play more, but instead, I was so happy to have finished this game and send it back. It just didn't catch my attention as well as the others. This game is a for sure rent, but not buy, and not nearly as good as the previous Dead Space's
