The Beauty of Dead Space 3: ‘Alien’ Infused Sound Design

Entertainment Buddha's Matt Heywood writes, "While playing through Dead Space 3 I couldn’t help but be impressed by the stellar sound design of the game, and I feel it to be the best of the series so far. With that being said I also feel the sound design shares a very close resemblance to the Alien franchise of movies. There’s one thematic tone in particular that gets replayed throughout Dead Space 3, and every time I hear it I am instantly transported to my younger years thinking about the first time I watched the Alien movies." (Dead Space 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

This just reminded me that I got the game on Origin. I'll go try it.

can anyone tell me if this is worth playing? i actually enjoyed two, even though it was a watered down version of Dead Space 1 (horror wise).

I thought number 3 was pretty good and didn't deserve some of the comments I've read on it - it's a good game and has its share of frights and scares. I was initially put off with all the co-op talk etc but the game is great as a single player game.

It's got more action rather than been pure survival horror like the first game but it is creepy in places and some of graphics are awesome (space scenes, open snow scenes with the sun tinging the sky red etc).

I think it's well worth playing through on hard and then playing New Game + as well.

Like a lot of people, I was immediately against Dead Space 3 when they showed Isaac taking cover, fighting human enemies, adding co-op and making microtransactions such an integral part of the game. However, the more I saw of the game, I decided I wanted it and I think it's an awesome game.

Fighting human enemies, in addition to plenty of necromorphs, makes complete sense with how the story progressed, which makes taking cover make sense. Co-op is completely optional, but I played it with a buddy for my second play-through, and it was a lot of fun. As for microtransactions, I didn't purchase a single item in-game. There were plenty of resources for crafting your own weapons, which is a lot of fun.

The game has more action than the first two, but to me, it feels like a natural progression. As always, the graphics are top notch and I enjoyed the story. If you're a fan of the series, it's worth playing. I bought it at release and I'm happy I did. Some games aren't worth the $60 at launch, but I feel this one is, and it's an even better value if you can get it for cheaper.

It's a good game.
I felt little bit frustrated from the reviews and the co-op..etc but I reminded myself that reviews aren't objective. I bought the game and it was a good game, it's not a 10/10 game but it worth playing.
If you're DS veteran then I'd advice you to play on hard right away. It's kinda crappy on normal.
I played it on normal for like 15 mins then I restarted it and played it on hard.

If anyone is interested, DS3 takes many musical cues from the Alien OST song titled The Droid.

There are also a bunch of other cues in there borrowed from films. It's one of the reasons I love it so much.
