Balancing horror and action in Dead Space 3 [Joystiq]

With Dead Space 3 Visceral looks to offer more of a balance between action and horror. Though the series is still planted within the action-horror sub-genre, Dead Space 3 will attempt to match the level of scares seen in previous entries while ramping up the action as the story progresses. (Dead Space 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

lol...how wrong can this guy be

Even the first paragraph

"With Dead Space 3 Visceral looks to offer more of a balance between action and horror. Though the series is still planted within the action-horror sub-genre, Dead Space 3 will attempt to match the level of scares seen in previous entries while ramping up the action as the story progresses"

They havent balanced anything out, it's pretty clear from everything we've seen from it so far that it's just another generic third person action game which looks like a cross between Lost Planet and Gears of War. They've made Issac into this cocky soldier when all he really is, is a mechanic with lady luck by his side. Ellie has been made the damsil in distress, and they brought in this horrible generic soldier grunt guy, who tries to be funny with his saracastic one liners but really comes off as a douche, for co-op which SHOULDN'T of been added.

They saw what Capcom did with their franchise and instead of learning from their mistakes they wanted the mass mainstream audience aswell for more money.

To say they are balacing the two out is laughable, there is hardly any horror in everything we've seen. Even the co-op as ruined it despite being optional, when you see the videos of it being played solo theres still so many other things which don't make it scary that it dosent help it one bit, it's the way it's been designed at the end of the day and the levels have been designed for co-op.

Dead Space 2 nearly balanced it out, just like Resident Evil 4 did. They just needed a little more scares in the sequel but they both got it wrong.

I don't like Carver already, one liners don't belong in Dead Space.
