IBTimes Dead Space 3 Preview: Game Over For Lifeless Visceral Game?

After a lengthy hands-on go with the game's opening sections, Dead Space 3 is not looking good. A product of the same Videogame-o-Matic that birthed the other parts in the series, it's bloated with lazy creative decisions and trite, generic conventions. The horror isn't frightening, the combat isn't exciting and the plot is wrought with half characters and MacGuffins.

As it stands, the game feels like it's trying to achieve very little and not even succeeding at that. It's always prudent to reserve judgment until playing the finished thing but at the moment, Dead Space 3 is a dud. (Dead Space 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Sounds a little harsh to me however I have'nt played the demo yet. You've made this game sound worse than Turning Point - Fall Of Liberty. lol.
I'll save my judgement till I play the demo to though.
I enjoyed the last 2 (1st was better in my opinion).
Who know's, ya maybe right though!

so, it's just like the other 2?

mind that i liked the first game and i loved the second one, so i am pretty happy that the game don't try to be something else.

I'm still not sure about this one. I want to love it, but I am not sure if I can. We shall see.

Loved the first two, but as soon as they confirmed co-op for the third installment I dramatically lowered my expectations. This preview pretty much confirms that I'll be passing on this one.

Your loss. The co-op is optional. You can still play single player just like the other two games. Dead space 3 is also longer than the others, and the newly added weapon creation and customization adds even more depth and fun to the game. I'll be picking this up day 1, probably won't even touch co-op until I've beaten the game a few times.
