MTV- Dead Space 3 Review

MTV:"Dead Space 3" is an awful horror game but an okay shooter. At any given point in time, it's never really clear what type of game Visceral set out to make, or who "Dead Space 3" was targeting. It's obviously well-produced, but like a any slick blockbuster horror movie, the artifice--the noise, the spectacle--gets in the way of actually allowing the player to feel anything moment to moment. With every loud music cue, every boilerplate crazy person speech from Danik, the things that made the first "Dead Space" so compulsively playable drifted farther and farther out of reach. Given the finality of the ending (minus the expected post-credits stinger), here's hoping Visceral can revisit this universe in a fresh way, unfettered by the constraints of delivering an epic saga. (Dead Space 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) -
