I was told by many people that this was the scariest game ever but, I rented this and started to play it was not even scary to even my 6 year old niece so, I put the scary part out of my mind thinking maybe its still a good game wrong again. As, I played I realized the game goes like this 10 min cut scene 5 min game play 10 min cut scene 5 min game play over and over again. The camera angle in this game is hands out the worst camera angle ever half the time you can't see whats going on and you move so slowly that monster are on you before you can even shoot. It's not a scary game it's just gross bodies explode and turn into weird alien things. Oh and if you like to plat co-op then you better buy the 800 Microsoft online pass or you can even play co-op with friends. all I give it a 1 out of 10 for it bad game play boring story and the fact that I have played Mario games scarier then this.
Its a good game, though more action-shooter than survival-horror. Some of this can be offset by increasing the difficulty, but none of the available settings seem to offer a good balance to the gameplay; the first two games were all about Less equals More, whereas DS3 is simply More of everything. And the writing is hackneyed, derivative, uninspired, lazy; its just bad, no way around it, cringe inducing. But the game, overall, has a very high production value to it, it may take a little while for it to sink in, but there is an excellence underlying all of the miscues and missteps. The weapon crafting is outstanding. I never purchased a single DLC item, it seems pointless for it to be so deeply integrated into the game, but it is, so just avoid it. Overall, an impressive effort that doesn't quite live up to its predecessors, but still a worthy addition to the franchise.
Being a fan of previous Dead Space games i was looking forward to play this game. But the changes they made to it are a total turn off. Less scary. All of a sudden its a shooter. And a bad story. Honestly i dont even want to finish it. Just semt it back. Not worth it.
