GameTrailers: "Carver and Clarke’s expedition is often intense, but at the same time overly familiar. The switch from outer space to a Hoth-inspired topography will reset your expectations, but the novelty won’t last long. Dead Space 3 has the bad habit of drawing you into a tantalizing catastrophe right before goading you right back into its more tedious and borderline exploitative elements. The quest is long and the side-content plentiful, but it all comes at the expense of the atmosphere. In our estimation, it’s a poor bargain."
