Dead Space is amazing series, worth the cash.

I never played the dead space games so I tried the demo and its awesome, gonna pick up 1 and 2 before buying 3

DO IT!!! I love the series. Play the first Dead Space with the lights off and the sound system on. It's fun.

Loved the original Dead Space but the new one looks more like Gears of War so they've lost me as a fan. It's the same crap that ruined Resident Evil so I've no interest in supporting the death of another great franchise.

but its not. The demo and what they showed doesnt really represent the whole game

dgonza401406d ago

^ that's what a demo is supposed to do, represent as much of the game as possible.

"It's the same crap that ruined Resident Evil so I've no interest in supporting the death of another great franchise."

Someone understand and gets it

Seriously if the same thing happened to another horror franchise then use your common sense and have a guess what will happen to Dead Space

it's just natural because there were millions more consoles sold since DS2 was released and many people are curious about the changes DS3 is bringing to the table. doesn't mean sales will double too!

I think the game will be good but it just won't be a horror game.

It'll be like RE5, which I enjoyed immensely. It felt more like a cheesy badass next-gen Contra game than a Resident Evil game, but it was good. I had a blast playing it with my friend and beating the game twice in one (very long) sitting.

I'm not the kind to dislike apples because they're not oranges. If the game is different from the past titles, it doesn't mean it will be bad. I approached DMC with that same mindset but it turns out the game was awful in my opinion. Not because dante had black hair, but for a whole lot of other reasons that made the game uninteresting. People should just judge games for what they are. The title that is slapped on it is not important.

maybe cause people are playing it coop.

ba-dum-tsss

Really though, the amount of people playing the demo is not completely relevant. It's largely based on the success of the PAST games, and on curiosity.

It's only once they've downloaded it and played it that they form an opinion on it

admiralvic1406d ago

You can look at it a lot of ways. I think a BIG reason for the bump is due to the changes. SH fans want to see how different it REALLY is and action fans want to see how different it REALLY is. If this is indeed true, then I would say that is quite troubling news... it would imply that a LOT are unsure of Dead Space 3 and this could largely impact sales.

tigertron1406d ago

Thing is though, the amount of people playing the demo doesn't equate to game sales.

I've played loads of demos in the past, but I haven't bought every game.

It is a positive sign however, but I just hope Visceral/EA stays grounded and appreciates its core fan base.

This is bad news for anyone involved with the game, as the demo was awful. Complete lack of tension and the action is standard fare. Loved the first two, but doubt this will even get a rent.

StrawberryDiesel4201405d ago

stop exaggerating, the gameplay feels very similar to Dead Space 2.

JP13691405d ago

Which was never a contender in the shooter category. It worked in past games because the nature of it added to the tension, which is now gone due to the environment and level design. The mummified necromorphs aren't especially terrifying and I can't imagine facing foes that are armed with weapons themselves will do anything for the horror.
The series has become more action oriented but it doesn't have the mechanics to make that an enjoyable experience.
Next time, either ask me for clarification about the specifics of my statement before making stupid comments, just shut your mouth altogether while you work on your reading comprehension.
