DarkStation: "What threatens to kill Dead Space 3 is that it’s so much easier to talk about what it isn’t rather than what it is. It’s not scary, it’s not difficult, and it’s not especially memorable; however, its artistry is lush, its action is proven, and its co-op is strong. Those accolades don’t mean much given DS3′s genre company, and even it’s own lineage, but they deserve acknowledgment. Put simply, Dead Space 1&2 are stories that have embedded themselves in my thoughts and kept me thinking for literal years after the fact, whereas Dead Space 3 is just a game. It’s a let-down, to be sure, but it’s not a total waste of time."
