Worth Playing: "Dead Space 3 struts its dedication to more dismemberments than delusions as a solo sci-fi gunfest. On that count, it's not a disappointment. On the other hand, it's hard to ignore what it loses when it tries to balance the needs of longtime fans while seeking to broaden its audience. Two years ago, Dead Space 2 ran a controversial, but hilarious, ad campaign proudly proclaiming that your mom would hate the game. Today, hardly any of that maverick attitude can be seen in this third-person blast-'em-up except, perhaps, in the co-op stuff that's behind a multiplayer requirement."
