Review: 'Dead Space 3' - Wait, I Thought I Was Playing A 'Dead Space' Game | RealSG

Anthony Accinelli of RealSG writes, "While I wish I could write about the sheer horror and intense feeling of solitude found within Dead Space 3, it's simply not possible. I'd love to describe the emotion felt when a group of necromorophs are lunging at me, low on ammo and out of health packs.

I'd also find great happiness in listing the vast improvements made over the previous entries in the franchise.

Unfortunately I can't."

Echoes how I felt. Different title, different score.

just in what way is this not a Dead Space game? I don't see the similarity to Gears at all.

and the game lets you change the difficulty at any time, so if you're not getting the experience of "low on ammo and out of health packs", how about upping the difficulty?

Dead Space games have to do with horror and as such there are scary moments in those games. Dead Space 3 is just mindless shooting so it's not a Dead Space game. Gears is mindless shooting so it's pretty much the same bland experience.

I guess were playing different dead space 3 games. The dead space 3 game I'm playing feels a lot like the first with some action sequences.

aquamala1264d ago

what part of this game has mindless shooting? most of the time you spent in this game is exploring, not shooting. It's nothing like Gears

Someone didn't play Dead Space 3...

Pintheshadows1264d ago

Dead Space 3 isn't a mindless shooter though. Just because they've ramped up the action doesn't make it a 'mindless shooter'. It still has classic Dead Space moments interspersed by bigger set pieces.

I still want to play this as a fan of Dead Space, but I'll wait till it's 30.00 or cheaper.

Monolith1264d ago

Its actually very good. I've enjoyed every moment of it so far.

nikrel1264d ago

Maybe i'll check into it, going to Disney World in March for my daughter's birthday, i'll check into it when we come home.

I really did enjoy the first two games, platinumed the first, gave up on the plat for the second with the hardcore(zelot) mode. hah

DeadSpaced1264d ago

Trust me, it's a great game.

i dont get why people are finding it so hard to accept the change that of course is going to happen by the 3rd installment.

the whole idea of dead space was isac was just a normal maintance man who was chucked in with all the necromorphs fighting for his life so of course hes scared.

after 2 games worth hes faced everything and so isnt scared anymore and so this reflects how the atmosphere has changed.

tbh dead space 1+2 were not that scary or atmosphere outside of jump scares which got pretty boring quickly.

nikrel1264d ago (Edited 1264d ago )

I agree.

I'm just finding it hard to drop 60 bucks when games drop price so quickly anymore.

Flipgeneral1264d ago

you're crazy man. The original Dead Space was to me, one of my most memorable gaming experiences this generation, because of the tension it created and the wonderful job Visceral did with the entire atmosphere.

Headphones in, lights off, past 9pm, and that's a recipe for a nail-biting atmospheric experience

To each their own though, maybe i'm just more susceptible to horror experiences!

"i dont get why people are finding it so hard to accept the change that of course is going to happen by the 3rd installment. "

People aren't finding it hard to accept, they're showing their dissatisfaction in the changes. If you don't make your opinion clear, then you only have yourself to blame for the problems. Pretty simple logic really...

Im starting to wonder if some of these unheard of reviewers have even played the frikin games! The guy complains about too much ammo and health packs. You know, if you play it on anything higher than normal, you will get less ammo and health packs? Game is great and im having a great time with it so far. I think alot of people have become VERY spoiled when it comes to games these days.

whamlollypop71264d ago

Spoiled maybe but you have to agree that developers scrap so essentials of gameplay that defines the game/genre to make it more appealing to the masses. For instance survival horror and stealth games tend to be harder than others so the likes of Hitman and Resident evil have become something else.

MadMax1264d ago

Yea, they sometimes do try and switch things up, but in this case i dont see much difference compared to the other two previous games so far. If anything, they added a few new things, they didnt really take anything key away from the fans.

I do know what youre talking about though. I come from the time of atari and colecovision, so i find it funny when all these kids nowadays are complaining about really nothing! Maybe we should give them black and white tvs and vcrs for a week, take away their cell phones and led tvs!

Haha, no disrespect to that era, i am an 80s junkie! Still own a working colecovision and even a couple arcade cabinets from back then! Would give it all up for an arcade full of the classic machines! I just think too many people take things for grantite these days.
