Is Dead Space 3 Already Dead?

Marty from DC writes: When the original Dead Space was released, it filled the survival horror void that Resident Evil had left in its transition to the current generation of consoles. I understood why RE had to change, to appeal to a wider audience and generate more sales, but I felt cheated. And despite my best efforts to shake it, that same feeling has returned for Dead Space 3. So after a two hours hands-on with the title and an interview with series producer John Calhoun, were my concerns justified? (Dead Space 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

After what EA has said recently about it and what they've done to the last good horror franchise out there...it's dead to me as well

I hope it bombs hard...I hope it sells so bad they start questioning why even though deep down they know why.

Better to die off now then continue like RE with it's awful installments after RE4 which get worse and worse.

Haters will hate, but I'm ready for some more Dead Space any day.

so haters are the ones who played the demo
and didn't like it as you did?!
PockyKing  +   541d ago
No, the haters are the people who complain about anything and everything on N4G. Everyone's entitled to their opinion of the game, but most people who played the first two and say they aren't getting the third judged the whole game on a couple gameplay clips and demo that's been shown to the public plenty before it was released.

The demo just showed the new stuff. It wasn't a representation of the game. It wasn't even a full level. They chopped some gameplay up and mashed it together.

But, like PockyKing said, Haters will hate.

@DeadSpaced Demos are suppose to be "a representation of the game." They're suppose to give you an idea of the final game so you can decide whether you want to buy the full version or not.
DeadSpaced  +   541d ago
@rdgneoz3 Well, I guess they didn't follow your definition of a demo.

Not liking the demo is one thing, but haters have been whining for months about this game. All demos are not created equal, and as DeadSpaced said the DS3 demo wasn't even a real level, just a bunch of gameplay mashed together. I think it's a great idea to do a demo that way. You can see how the game plays without revealing anything major. I was torn between this an Aliens, but now I'm thinking I'll get DS3 and save Aliens for later.

I played the demo and enjoyed it, the only thing I have to I guess complain is hope they fix the slight hit detection with the online co-op. The new weapons bench is tons of fun, I was sitting there saving blue prints for sci-fi films, like I made a Ripley's gun assult rifle with flame thrower.

A demo is just that, a demo and you cannot a whole game based on it. if you dislike it then thats perfectly fine, its your opinion and you are more then entighteld to it, but when you go on a message board saying oh its this and that.. Well then you are spreading false rumors about a complete project based on alittle taste. and I think thats what makes one a Fanboy, or as i've seen on this site a TROLL. (im new here so yeah.)

Big Dead Space fan and played the recent demo and I have some big concerns.

First, the series is in its third game and going on six years old and the controls are feeling a bit clunky now. It does not feel smooth or shooter friendly like a Gear of War game and its a problem. The controls were meant for a slower gameplay style found in DS 1 and DS 2 pushed it with more combat. Now with the combat even more intense with more enemies and ones that shoot, the controls don't feel like they should for that type of game or at least it felt that way to me.

Secondly, the so-called cover system seems useless at least in the demo, its more like a squat, so why bother, it doesn't feel functional like other cover systems in other games.

I liked the weapons crafting and the snowy atmosphere, but my feeling is this will be the lowest reviewed of the series and may sell the least amount as well.

I may still get it but I am not excited for this one, which is weird because I couldn't wait the play the previous two.
