Dead Space 3 Launches Today to Global Critical Acclaim

The tense, frightening and action-packed fight against the Necromorphs returns – but this time gamers don’t have to go at it alone! Visceral Games™, an Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA) studio, today announced that Dead Space™ 3, the first big entertainment blockbuster of 2013, is now available at retail stores in North America and on Origin.com. Heralded by more than 30 press outlets including USA Today, Forbes, NBC News and IGN as one of the most anticipated games of 2013, Dead Space 3 introduces an innovative drop-in/drop-out feature, all-new weapon crafting system and takes players on a thrilling ride through the terrors that lie hidden in deep space and the unforgiving ice planet of Tau Volantis. (Dead Space 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Global critical acclaim? Hardly.

Yeh an extreme choice of words I'd say - but I'd also say I'm really liking it so far, and yes I love the series and it's roots ala resident evil, but still really liking it despite the changes.

DS3 got an average 80/79 on MC with first two getting 88/89 and 89/90

ps3/360

hardly universal acclaim

Reads like it was copy/pasted off of an EA press release.

i was very intersted in the game but now i will wait for a price drop, i don't know why my hype for the game went down even though its getting very positive reviews.

also is it just me or is lost planet 3 looking more like DS1-2?

i am glad that co-op didn't mess up the DS formula, this along with sly 4 will get me through the rough months of summer, also EA's next game will be on my summer list too. army of two.

last of us
bioshock
MGR(depending on reviews)

are the only 3 games for me day one, and MGR demo didn't sell me on the game so that may also move to a summer game with lower price point

Innovative drop in drop out feature?! Im pretty sure that been around for quite a while. Games that spring to mind being Left for Dead and Gears of War
