What Makes Dead Space Special

"The genre of survival horror was one that got rather flooded in the days of the Playstation 2, but in this current generation of consoles there has been very little. Out of the few that have appeared there has been even less that have actually been worthwhile.

It seems that in this generation a lot of the survival horror developers have turned their backs on the roots of horror and opted to turn to action elements instead. Remember back in the days of the original Silent Hill when the combat controls were so clunky and slow that you would often run rather than fight? Nowadays every other protagonist seems to be rather adept at wielding some sort of weapon.

On that note however, there is one particular series that has stood out and stuck true to it’s roots. That series is Dead Space." - Declan McGeachey of Geekenstein.com

Shame this once great horror franchise has been ruined...thanks EA, not like we wanted a lost plants gears hybrid.

Compare the first game with the new one and you'll see what made it special

The new one isn't out yet, so how can we possibly do a comparison?

Root1286d ago

Previews, information from interviews, teasers, trailers, game play trailers, screen shots and the demo which I've spent time on.

Oh not to mention the fact that

1) Capcom did the same thing to their horror franchise and look what happened with RE5/RE6

and

2) It's EA....over the years they ruin every developer and their games that's under them...Bioware with ME and DragonAge, DICE and Battlefield 3, plus no Bad Company 3 just straight to BF4. I could go on

I've seen enough to form an opinion....if it's happened before then learn from you mistakes and expect the worst.

Dead Space was about being alone, isolated, dark narrow corridors, carefully using ammo, having to search more dangerous rooms to get noods for upgrades and money.....basically surviving like a real survival horror game.

DS3 however is over the top, turned Issac into a badass when he's an average everyday guy; wrong place wrong time. The fact that enemies/necromorphs have guns now, there's a cover system, you can roll like Gears of War, big explosions, guns are generic now, looks way too easy, most likely more ammo, horrible new character who is a typical generic soldier grunt, they seem to have sexed Ellie up despite her tom boyish charms in the second game.

I could go on....it's not Dead Space any more
