Dead Space 3 is an interesting sequel, taking cues from recent Resident Evils, Alien, Lost Planet, even shades of Prometheus. The horror aspect has taken a backseat this time, with bombastic action being the soup of the day. The thing is, it might be less scary, but it’s not a bad thing. The open environments have helped shake up the series, and the co-op partner is implemented in a unique, original way. Sure it might not make you soil your trousers as much as the last games, but you’ll be no less gripped.
