GR-UK writes: "The problem Dead Space 3 has is that it's in an identity crisis.
It doesn't know what it is. Its pacing, with constant huge explosions, constant monster attacks, leaves little time to create the ambiance - the slow build - expected of the horror genre, to which the series had originally paired itself.
And on the flipside, gameplay mechanics that emphasise the slow and plodding movement of a man clad in a deep space suit leads to monotonous combat that doesn't impress in action, nor terrify in the way it should when faced with undead alien nightmares. What we are left with is a title that doesn't impress in either of the areas that count."
