Dead Space 3 Review: Nope! | Gaming Blend

Many Dead Space fans feared that Dead Space 3 would mark an end to the series' blend of action horror. In pursuit of bigger sales, would EA ditch the horror elements in favor of delivering a balls-to-the-wall co-op shooter? However, as it turns out, the game didn't sacrifice horror for action. It fails at both.

I'm not saying the game deserved a 5/5, but 2.5 seems a little low.

Playing the game still and starting the 9th Chapter and LOVING IT. This score or anything like it is worth .... NOTHING (empty like some parts of outer space).

Agreed, I'm about 6 hours in and so far it's excellent.

70% of the time it's a lot like the previous games (dark empty corridors with things jumping out, solving puzzles to get machinery working, etc).

20% of the time it's more action-shooter, but this isn't too frequent and works well for some variety as adrenline moments after long periods of quiet and isolation.

10% is the excellent zero gravity full flying around in space, which I really enjoy.

Absolutely loving it at the moment. I never finished #2 because it got too repetitive for me, but this one does not over-emphasise the action and instead uses it for key set-pieces that really broaden the scale of the franchise beyond just 'here's another empty ship with broken lights and necromorph-sized vents'.

I can understand some people are wary, but i think it's more the fault of the marketing presenting it to be more of a run-and-gun shooter than it actually is. Give it a go before making judgements.

2.5 it's too low it's not a perfect game but it's ok personally i think this is a 3.5

0/5 .. because after the great 1st title the overly boring second part disappointed me in a way that i do not even wanna know what they level-edited this time around. i guess the 2.5 is a bit too high.

You're giving it a rating without playing it? Wow...

Not quite sure what people were expecting.

I'm enjoying the game, it's not an easy game if you play normal or hard for a lot of people.

Has more enemies, big boss type creatures.

Space is alive and well.

I played insane the first time around. My mistake.

2.5? really?

I feel the reason why this game is getting low scores is because it isn't as scary as the previous games. The gameplay/everything else is really well made and had this been just another action game, it would have had higher scores.

I'm giving this a 9/10. I would have given it a 10 like the last two, but I can't give it full marks because of the lack of horror (especially in co-op) and sometimes it can get repetitive.
