Let me start off by saying I LOVE Dead Space and Dead Space 2! While Dead Space 3 isn't a bad game at all it does feel slow at times and there's a focus on action (I guess they went for mass appeal) and that takes away from the horror. The game is really easy and you end up with way too much health and ammo. However, there are plenty of cool things about Dead Space 3! There's a new mechanic that allows traveling between different environments so that the game doesn't seem stale and an all new weapon bench/upgrade system. You can make your own weapons that cater to your playstyle. While I personally prefer the older upgrade bench I will admit the new one is really nice and once you get the hang of it you'll enjoy it. Dead Space 3 is worth a rent but unfortunately that's all.

Okay even though this game doesn't have lots of scares than the last two dead space games , but it does have its scary moments that are worth it. Yes i do agree the action kinda ruin the game a little but its soo worth it trust me . A great campaign , good graphics , and co-op helps the story even more, new monsters , hard boss fights. Its the same Dead space game we all love but with more action. This is a great way to start off 2013 Dead space 3 is a Game of the Year nominee

OK 1st off I am a huge Dead Space fan. Maybe I was expecting too much? Trying to fight off hordes of freaks while hoping the next drop is health, only to find scrap mettle?? I mean your close to death and you get scrap mettle? All in all the story is very strong but it also lacks depth. I was able to put the story together before the chapter ended. RENT IT FIRST!! Its was a huge let down
