Dead Space 3 Review - BootHammer

"Visceral Games has no doubt delivered the greatest Dead Space experience yet. This is due to its overall polish, its impressive action sequences and its ability to still terrify gamers at a moments chance. They have evolved the series while still keeping that Dead Space feel that made the franchise so popular. Fans and newcomers alike will be happy to hear this could very well be one of the finest games of this generation." -BootHammer

Ugh review sites and their scores....a 10/10? Really? I have played the demo, I have played the other 2 games in the series, I know of EAs track record as a company, and I have read enough about this game online to know that it simply CANNOT be a 10/10 game. I will be the first to admit that I have not played DS3 yet, but how the hell can it be a 10? a 10!!!! Think about what a 10 calibur game is for a second. It's sites like this that have ruined the 1-10 scale for game reviews

Convas1237d ago

Excuse me, but may I humbly point out what a REVIEW is.

A review is a critical evaluation of something by critic. A review simply encapsulates the reviewer's feelings about the game.

Not your feelings or my feelings, but his/hers. And if your feelings happen to line up with his/hers, then, great! If not ...

Haha I knew someone was going to come back with this canned response. If we're going by that logic then I guess it's possible these folks believe every big name title that has come out in the past several months is the greatest game ever. Look at their site, they rarely don't give out anything less than a 9.5/10 for their reviews. Is it POSSIBLE they reeeeeeeally love every game that comes out that much? I suppose so, not very likely though. OR is it possible they just give big name titles good reviews for web traffic? Hmmmmmm I'll let you think about that one

Well as a long time fan of the series, it's my favourite series this gen actually, I'd give it a 10 as well from what I've played of it.

The full game is nothing like the demo, the demo is a poor representation of the full game.

I've been playing it for over four hours and I'm loving it, it's very much still the Dead Space we all know and love.

Kangashark1237d ago

Ha if every review on their site is a 9 or 10 then they really don't have an opinion about the games, they're just saying everything is wonderful, always, all the time, with every game ever.

"Well as a long time fan of the series, it's my favourite series this gen actually, I'd give it a 10 as well from what I've played of it."

So your basicaly giving it a good score because it's your favorite franchise this gen....this is exactly what reviewers seem to be doing, basing it on the brand name and their love for it rather then the game it's self and does it hold up to the past games which made the game what it is

@Root

Either you didn't read what I said or you're not understanding what I said. I said the Dead Space series was my favourite series this generation.

Where did I say that I'd give it a 10 because it was my favourite series of this generation?

I said I'd give Dead Space 3 a 10 from what I played so far. Are you following me Root?

Good.

You're too quick to judge a game based on your small experience of it, you've done it quite a few times now.

I've actually played the game Root, have you? And I'm not talking about the demo, because that's not the full game.

Think before you post Root, for once.

10/10 means it's a PERFECT game, GOTY contender, and the genre bar setter. Is Dead Space 3 really THAT great?

Blues Cowboy1237d ago (Edited 1237d ago )

No it doesn't, necessarily. Some sites use 10/10 to mean a perfect unattainable nirvana, whereas others use it to denote that it's an essential purchase if you like the genre or own the console. The number means absolutely nothing unless you take it in context: i.e. the individual publication's review criteria.

But, erm, I do sort of agree with you, it is rather high.

Revolver_X_1237d ago

A review is an opinion, correct? This is why you READ the ARTICLE. It will put the score into CONTEXT. 10/10 just means the little flaws dont take away from the game, and it is a must play title. You should play it, it is THAT good.

See what I did there :)

izumo_lee1237d ago

Umm i'm sorry but the best Dead Space game was the first one. When EA & Visceral decided to deviate from the formula that made the first game one of the most frightening experiences to a more action oriented game it lost what made the game special.

Revolver_X_1237d ago

Dead Space 2 has higher critical acclaim then 1 and improves on everything. This "purist" act on N4G is getting old. I'll lend you my DeLorean so you can go back to the PS1 era and salivate over RE2 tank controls some more.

izumo_lee1237d ago

That is your opinion & i have mine. I'm not sure where you are coming from with that 'purist' remark. And those RE2 tank controls was in a better game than the mediocre stuff we often get nowadays.

I'm just saying that Dead Space 1 felt more claustrophobic thus giving the player a greater sense of being alone. I have no doubt Dead Space 2 was a more critical acclaim game however for me it didn't have that same reaction that the first game pulled off.

TrendyGamers1237d ago

First perfect score if I'm not mistaken.
