Proof That There’s Some Creepiness Left In Dead Space 3, Thanks To New Content

Kotaku - One of my biggest problems with Dead Space 3 is that it is utterly lacking in the hallucination department. What happened to all those twisted, freaky things I witnessed in the first two titles?

Playing as Isaac got you close to zero hallucinations. You could get minor satisfaction in co-op while playing as Carver, but even then the acid trippy moments felt thin. And weak. (Dead Space 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

I'm not buying the creepiness that should never have been removed. I enjoyed the game for what it was but no DLC for me.

If you saw me commenting much about DS3, you should know I really enjoyed the game, a lot more than most on N4G will admit to. My friend and I had a blast playing co-op. That said, they removed the horror factor that was in the 1st two games and added a lot more action. Now they're selling DLC that features the sort of dark content that should have already been in the game, so I'm against it. I still think DS is one of the best trilogies I've ever played. Hope that clears things up for ya. If you've seen me troll, it's been about this DLC, not the game itself.

The only shock this game has given me was the fact i paid 10 euro`s for DLC that only lasted an hour.

Honestly, now that I've finally got to playing three, I don't agree with all the hate the game is getting.
I've played the series now, back to back, and there isn't all that much difference between any of the games, outside of a difference in pacing.
That said, Dead Space never really came off as horror to me, being that nothing in the game was all that scary. Again, this is personal opinion. I have friends who steer away from the game in general because it is too much for them.
Honestly, I feel the game did some things better than the others, like replacing the illogical 'shop' system with a more believable crafting system. It just makes more sense.
To me, the series has always been an action game with great atmosphere. I've gotten this with every game in the series and I am happy with every release. I loved three and consider it a fantastic game,
I definitely plan on grabbing the dlc once I am ready to do my co-op playthrough.

Yes, you're right about the pacing. There's so much action it takes away from the creepiness even though most of the creepy elements are still there. I liked the crafting as well, though not the little bots that gathered materials for you. The crafting system was sort of a drag when playing co-op also. I thought there was too much backtracking and going through similar looking areas, and that the optional missions weren't much more than exploring a side area to find a box of stuff. More of the game should have been in space too, imo. Overall I really enjoyed the game though.
