This was the first game I played in the series so it took a bit to get used to. I wanted to review this before but I wanted time to let things settle in my head. Now after taking some time to thing about things I want to give this between a 6 and 7. The controls that is one thing I remember was frustrating. Things that should take one button takes multiple button making things much more difficult than they should be. One things that is fun yet frustrating because of the choices is the ability to create your own weapons. In fact I will boost this to a 7 because of it. There is nothing better than picking up a new piece and thinking how can I create a new weapon. that being said the managing of the inventory is just a bit much. Oh no I have to run back and find a box to put away some stuff. Do I need to carry X many small/medium/large medipacks. Where is a bench i need to create a crow bar do I have enough platinum... Etc. Whatever it was a good story and but for the frustrating bits that drag on this is pretty good. I think this is a bit unfair but I'm not really in to the "horror" game and I am new to the series if not for those reasons this would probably get a higher rating. I probably won't play the others in the series as i am not into the genre and I have a backlog but I will probably give any squeals a a chance. This game is worth a play and a buy. if you want a change play game + or insanity or whatever. Not my cup of tea i have better things to do an more games to play but if you are into it its there for you something for everyone.
Huge fan of the series but this one was a huge disappointment. I had to go and make my first review it was so bad. So many repetitive battles, clunky slow controls, and UGGHH the constant back tracking! There was a couple of good scares and some gnarly death scenes but it also has one of the worst endings. 12 hours of gameplay for a 15 second end scene for a series final? GTFO>>> what a shame...shouldve called it shame space 3.

I like how this game trades gore for action. I don't care for game with a lot of gore which is why I never played Dead Space 1 or 2. I also like how this game has Co-op. Dead Space 3 is absolutely the best Dead Space game made so far. I would defiantly buy this game.
