"Dead Space 3 has been a bit of hit and miss with gamers. While it does maintain some identity in relation to the old games, steadily the Dead Space series has been moving away from its initial survival horror roots" | Explosion.com
Think the new one got canned, read it somewhere around here
Nope, EA said that was false within hours of the original story. No company is going to come out and say something is 100% false as adamantly as they did unless they mean it.
EA pretty much wanted to pull the plug on it I think. Anything that doesn't pull CoD numbers is a waste of money in their minds.
Less shooting, less amo, absolutely no weapon customization. Less monsters more scares.
The weapon customization was ok, I don't think that in itself made the game less scary imo, agree with everything else though.
I liked the weapon customization. The franchise was never scary to me so I would take more choice, suit customization, and even more diverse enemies. Personally the sci-fi tech in the game is what always interested me the most.
This is the last one, There was going to make another but due to poor sales EA has cancelled development on the 4th instalment.
EA already said that was a load of crap. Not just that, the game sold over 600k copies in it's first month. Those are not bad sales, especially since sales in the gaming industry are down across the board.
Reboot...lol. Try making this one scary like the first one. Love the no HUD etc. for immersion when u r playing a survival horror game. I hope they got the hint that they destroyed a marvelous IP...its sad too.
well if EA had left it alone instead or turning into another cover shooter with a forced AI partner I am sure it would have sold better. Heck I would have bought it if they had left the original DS formula alone.
There's no forced AI partner. If you play it solo, you're alone, Carver barely appears.
well they didn't express that very well, all I saw was RE5 in space from all the previews / videos prior to launch.
How can they improve?! Hmm my suggestion is not let ea have anything to do with it... Everything Ea is doing and saying in the last couple of months is just making me not want to buy any of there futurer products.. Didn't they get voted one of the worst companies a couple years ago? I wonder why!
@seanpitt23 EA commented on the rumours abt it being canned & said dey were false @roper316 thr's no AI partner in d gm co-op is optional IMO it wasn't a bad gm jus nt as good as d previous installments especially d 1st
If they want to improve it, listen to the fanbase and don't advertise the game as an action game. That's hardly a way to gain new customers and it sure as hell won't attract old ones.
Shit can shoe horned co-op and mp.
I like the idea of Co-Op in Dead Space personally but the one place they missed out in my opinion is split screen. I have Dead Space 3 and was excited to be able to play something different with my cousin but once I found out split screen wasn't included I immediately put it up in favor of games that do. Co-Op could have a fantastic fit with Dead Space if its done right in my opinion.
I beat the Awakened DLC yesterday and was left scratching my head as to why DS3 wasn't more like it. Then I realized it was probably a part of the game but they removed it because it didn't make sense and decided to charge you for it.
