This game is amazing everything about it is just outstanding i loved the first two games and i would recommend this game to people who have played 1 and 2 and even to those who have never played either of them 10/10
I was a fan of the first Dead Space then DS2 came out and it generally stunk up the room. I was apprehensive about DS3 but ordered it anyway. The first thing you notice is the slowness of the main character. He cannot get out of the way of himself and it makes him easy prey. Next came the game freezing. May have been a bad copy, but that along with the slow character movement was enough to send it back the next day.

I've played the first two Dead Space games, and had a amazing of a time surviving the alien hordes, and also dismembering them with mining equipment. So when I played the third one, I thought that I would be trudging through organic matter on some scary derelict ship (or something) fighting said hordes, but no, I get this.
Dead Space 3 strays far from the Dead Space formula, and focuses on co-op gameplay, which is great if you have online capability. There is no differential between co-op and solo campaign, so the results are that you are getting mobbed by overwhelming numbers of monsters, while you are playing solo campaign. There is also almost no scary moments in this game, I mean the only time you get scared is when you know that the next encounter will most likely end up with you swamped with monsters, and the only way to resolve this situation is just to keep mashing the melee button.
The upsides of this game is the weapon customization, graphics, the voice acting (some of the best), and you get the N7 armor from Mass effect 3.
So to sum up this game, I'd say Dead Space taken one step forward, with weapons customization, and two steps back with the overwhelming enemy, lack of frightening and intense gameplay, and finally virtually no consideration for offline gameplay.
