Presspauseradio.com's Quarter Circle Forward Review: Dead Space 3

"Most stories rarely put in the effort of coming full-circle from their beginnings. Dead Space 3 again visits its reluctant protagonist, Isaac Clarke, the man responsible for the destructions of the alien artifacts known as the Markers, and sends him to the genesis of the Marker plague to end the Necromorph menace once and for all. Visceral Games's once humble interstellar horror show has now evolved into something more than just a survival-thriller, and is instead going the action-thriller route since its second outing. Living up to that “grocery list” of elements that brings the prototypical “Dead Space” experience is no easy task when you’re trying to significantly innovate the series.

Dead Space 3 attempts to combine these styles in its effort coming full-circle, but the key word here is "attempt." The reality is that if one word could describe what Dead Space 3 really is in when the dust clears, that word would be "splintered."
