Dead Space 3: 10 Reasons It Sucks

WC: The Dead Space 3 demo dropped yesterday for PS3 and Xbox 360, and the Internet has been abuzz with conflicting impressions of it. Ever since the first footage debuted at E3, I was sceptical about the inclusion of co-op multiplayer, fearing it might dilute the experience just as it had done with the last two Resident Evil games. Though the game has some nifty new mechanics and feels a whole lot like John Carpenter’s The Thing (which can never be bad), it hasn’t done a whole lot to dissuade me from these complaints. Many have also stood up in defence of the title, however, claiming that it simply represents the evolution of the franchise.

Anyway, I’m not personally convinced; this feels like a game being crafted to suit the highest number of people possible, more a commercial calculation than an attempt to create a game that is consistent in tone with the previous entries into the series. Of course, we have to remember that this is “only” a demo, so things like the visuals might be tidied up before the final product is released in 2 weeks. Nevertheless, on the strength (and moreover, the weakness) of this demo, here are 10 reasons why Dead Space 3 sucks. (Dead Space 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Great list, except for the "3. No Deathmatch Mode", that shouldn't be in anyway

Very true, it's why I'll not be getting it this time. I'm sick of companies trying to destroy franchises for a bigger audience. It never works out

How about you wait until the game release and THEN make your list
Root  +   1117d ago
Don't give me the wait untill the release bullcrap

You don't need to play the full game to make an opinion on something

I've seen every preview, interview, screenshot, teaser, trailer, gameplay trailer and even played the demo a few times.....thats why I agreed with this list. They arn't trying to downplay the obvious.

The emo kids always follow the first review they read much like a moth to the flame. You cant change them. It's in their nature.

10 min from now you'll see post saying Dead Space 3 will be the greatest game ever. Just a matter of luck of the draw timing which one the sheep will read first.

Actually, playing the full game YOURSELF is a great way to see if a game works for you or not. But hey, whatever floats your boat

OF COURSE, the best way to decide whether or not you'll like a game is to play the full, final version.

Unfortunately, that comes with the risk of spending your hard-earned- or not- money on a game you could very well hate.

FORTUNATELY, there are all sorts of ways to get information on a game BEFORE buying it, so that you can see whether or not it'll be worth your money. Those resources are the reason I've bought very few (maybe three?) games over the years that I haven't loved.

Root is well within his rights to take the available information on this game and decide whether or not he will like it. Just as others can look at what it offers and decide that it's a DEFINITE buy for them.

i never said my opinion was better, im just saying my opinion on the matter. I just hate when someone judges the entire product based on a demo.

@root just speak with your wallet, thats the only thing which makes a difference.

as i said, whatever floats your boat
