Preview: Dead Space 3 Demo - TGV

The Gaming Vault writes:

"Hung upside down in the wreckage of his ship, half frozen to death in the frigid, hellish wasteland that is the planet Tau Volantis, its safe to say that things don’t exactly start off to brightly for hero Isaac Clarke.

For the player though, things aren’t really quite so bad as within minutes of the opening cut-scene everything feels pleasingly familiar; in a fashion which harkens back to the original Dead Space.

Sure, the snow covered hills and frosty caverns are a world away from the claustrophobic darkness of the 2008 original, but regardless that same intensity has endured.

Indeed early on, each footstep taken is a literal gamble with your nerves as the score deftly ratchets up to panic-inducing crescendos in turn setting the cue for the multi-limbed screaming horrors which rush you from the impenetrable snowstorm; creating a thrill that while perhaps rudimentary and cliched in its execution, nonetheless remains ostensibly effective in rattling your nerves." (Dead Space 3, Xbox 360)

Not impressed.

It seems like an entitely serviceable game, but an entitely dreadful Dead Space game.

This is reminding me to play the demo and make sure I really like it given I ordered the Dev Team edition...
Good writeup!

Thanks guys.

It certainly seems to have trouble settling on a particular dynamic as I said, but regardless I found it quite enjoyable all the same.

Visually, its knock-out material for sure too.
