I love the horror genre, scary books and movies formed my youth and since playing Resident Evil I have loved survival horror video games.
The tension, lack of ammo, jump scares, things shambling in the shadows and the palpable sense of dread that something is going eat your face of at any moment made for some memorable gaming moments. Then along came Dead Space, combining two of my favourite things, sci-fi and horror, making space horror! Dead Space was awesome, however, recently survival horror games have become a dying breed (I can’t think of a recent new I.P) and due to online rumours was worried about the direction Dead Space 3 was heading. Had E.A. and Visceral Games managed to kill off the Dead Space franchise? With a sense of a different kind of dread, I turned the lights off, took a deep breath and inserted the disc. 89/100
