Dead Space 3
Is it scary? Not Really. Is it fun? Definitely.
on May 21, 2013 at 04:22 PM
I don't care that Dead Space 3 is less scary than the other Dead Space games. I do not judge a game on whether it's scary or not, even in the horror genre. I judge a game on whether or not it is fun to play or not. Luckily for Dead Space 3, it is very fun to play and is definitely the end of...
DownPlay Reviews #9 - Dead Space 3
on April 29, 2013 at 04:35 PM
Dead Space 2 is one of my favorite games of this generations. Provided, it wasn’t scary, but, and I still have to explain this to people, that wasn’t the point. What Dead Space lacked in terror it made up for with the ever crucial ingredient, atmosphere. It was packed with tension and suspense and the...
An Identity Crisis
on April 21, 2013 at 01:45 PM
Dead Space feels like a game with an identity crisis. Like many horror titles such as Resident Evil, Dead Space seems to be trying to appeal to the lowest common denominator with a heavier action focus. Necromorphs still pop out of vents, hide behind corners, and crawl out of the dark, but everything...
Less horror, more action, same amazing experience

Normal 0 false false false EN-US JA X-NONE The first two games in the Dead Space series became known for their graphic dismemberment gameplay mechanics, a HUD-less display that helped immerse players in the chilling atmosphere, and an ever-present sense of fear that death could come from anywhere. But...
Gameplay Over Presentation
on March 20, 2013 at 11:14 AM
The focus on horror elements and isolation of past Dead Space games has been tossed aside in the newest iteration of the series. Taking its place is an emphasis on action sequences, narrative, and making protagonist Isaac Clarke feel like an engineer who is equally efficient at repairing broken machinery...
Dismemberment, Now With Friends!
on February 28, 2013 at 12:23 PM
Issac Clarke is back and this time he seems relatively safe. However, a message from Ellie saying that she is leaving him are the first words you hear after seeing the "Marker Killer" reminds you that nothing about Issac's life is sunshine and daisies. Next thing Issac knows two armed men...

Although I cannot give a true rating for this game, as my brother and I are not finished with it, I can definitely say that I am highly enjoying this game right now. It is a well paced action-horror title, with loads of new features and improvements from the original. This game definitely deserves your...
Dead Space 3 Review by Rafael

The latest entry into the Dead Space 3 series does not disappoint. The game has now been made to focus a bit more on action, while not necessarily leaving behind the survival horror elements that the series is well known for. That's not to say that the game doesn't have it's share of scares...
Dead Space is back!
on February 17, 2013 at 10:22 PM
Dead Space 3 starts with a bang and never let's up. This time around the series has moved to a more action feel. But that doesn't change the series from being awesome, scary, and very fun. If you have played the other two Dead Space games you may be upset at first. Because Dead Space has always...
RFXRage's Review of Dead Space 3
on February 16, 2013 at 04:04 PM
Dead Space 3 has been somewhat of a controversial game as of late, some believe it to be one of the best games of this generation while others are highly disappointed about the game. I, however, agree entirely with the former. Visceral Games has taken the Dead Space series to the next level and is unafraid...
Suprises at Every Turn
on February 16, 2013 at 01:44 AM
I had my doubts about this at first. I played the demo and found myself exposed to sunlight and outside, so I prepared to be disappointed. The first several chapters, to me, had a really strong and solid classic dead space feel to it. I was utterly hooked and found myself coming across side missions...

I'll make this a short one. I wanted to write a review for Dead Space 3 but am just too tired, so here's a quick and spoiler free Pro's and Con's list. Enjoy. -Pro's -20 hour campaign stuffed with things to do -Side missions are well made -Weapons are as fun to shoot as ever -Enemy...
Despite direction controversy, this is still an incredible and worthy entry.
on February 11, 2013 at 01:41 AM
At first when I saw the over the top action displayed in the trailers for the game, like many other fans, I was instantly turned off. For the next few months I didn't even give it another thought. That made my re-entry into the series all the more sweet. I read the review by good sir Turi and having...
A Bloody Success
on February 10, 2013 at 09:34 AM
Dead Space has revitalized the horror-genre in almost every way. A HUD-less presentation, overwhelming enemies, and environmental weapons. Dead Space 3 is here to mix it up in almost everyway. The story is well-written, with scenes making me feel compassion for what Isaac and Carver have to go through...
Die Hards of this Horror Story Will Be Disappointed
on February 09, 2013 at 07:14 PM
GI rarely goes awry on reviews or their rating accuracy but this one made me double take. I’ve never had a need to write a review here, but after reading Mr. Turi’s numbing 9.75 review of DS3 I felt compelled to write my own for the die-hard fans of the series. The fantastic thing about DS...
Dead Space 3
on February 09, 2013 at 04:19 PM
In the past few years, Visceral Games has definitely turned previous thoughts on the horror and survival genres on their heads. With their first entry in the dead Space saga, they crafted a unique, visually appealing sojourn through the eerie ship known as the USS Ishimura, and set a marketable trend...
