Maybe I should of read comments online first, but my roommate and I were excited to play co-op mode. We found out that there was no split screen mode and on top of it we would to pay EA for a multi-player account to even play multi-player of any type.
EA continues to ruin games with its pay for multi-player scheme.
The game is typical Dead Space, and I like it for that. However, then ending really left me wanting (though not as bad as Mass Effect 3) more story and meaningful ending. Still - the mechanics were all there, gameplay was solid and puzzles interesting - but not very challenging. It was nowhere near as scary as the first game, or even the seconds game, but I guess that's a touch act to follow. Overall, still loved the game, but it won't get a second playthrough for me. But I am not a hardcore gamer, either, that wants every achievement out of every game. Not a co-op fan, but can see where it would be enjoyable for those that are.
