Lots of cool games. Never played any of the Dead Space games, I guess I'll start with the one they offer

Dang Heavy...Dead Space 3 is the worse one to start off with.

Transporter471580d ago

I feel like the series went from best to worst

1-2-3 lol

maniacmayhem1580d ago

@Transported

I feel the exact same way. It's shame because usually video game sequels get better (at least they are supposed too) but Dead Space literally got worse as it got further and further away from what made the original so fantastic.

Part 3 for was just a former shell of what 1 was and I couldn't even make it to the end without returning it to Gamefly.

CaptainObvious8781580d ago

3 was definitely the worst.

Had none of the creepy atmosphere the 1st one had.

A great example of when catering to the casual market back fires.

PhucSeeker1580d ago

Hell , even the one on iOS/Android is better than 3 .

mikeslemonade1580d ago

Pretty much best to worst for Bioshock, Gears, and Mass Effect also.

HellzAssassin1580d ago

Agreed with pretty much everyone. I'm adore the hell out of the original Dead Space. And even DS2 was incredible as well. DS3... killed it for me. I never even bothered to get platinum, let alone play it more than once. DS1 & 2; I've got 10+ playthroughs on each.

bouzebbal1580d ago (Edited 1580d ago )

I platinumed the first one and almost did with the second one and to me the second one is the very best of them all.
i only played DS3 demo but i dont think it can top DS2.
i'll definitely DL it and try it but the demo with snow and daylight was a terrible set up for the franchise.

TowerFall and Strider? Hell yeah!!

christian hour1580d ago

Dead Space 1 hit al the right notes, the latter games went the resident evil evolution route and began to focus more on action and blockbuster set peice elements and less on immersion and pacing. Such a shame :(

I almost bought Strider several times in the last 3 months but always convinced myself to hold off. Delighted I did :D Just bought Valiant Hearts so that'll keep me busy until next tuesday :)

mr2331579d ago

Dead Space 3 was definitely not as scary as the first, or as good as the second. It is more of an action game and much less of a horror game. But, it wasn't a terrible game and is certainly worth playing especially for free.

You can get DS 1&2 for cheap. I wouldn't pass them up! Dead Space>Resident Evil(new games anyways) IMO.

bouzebbal1580d ago

you can indeed compare DS to RE4 5 and 6 and DS1&2 ARE way better than any of these but by any mean you can compare DS to Code Veronica and before cause DS is no survival horror it's a TPS action game.

admiralvic1580d ago

I would suggest playing the earlier ones, since Dead Space features a linear story (so you're going to be confused if you know nothing of the previous titles) and 3 was a departure from what we saw in 1 and to a lesser extent 2.

ziggurcat1580d ago

@xheavyx:

don't start with 3. if you're going to play dead space, the only one you really need to play is the first one, and it's dirt cheap to buy.

How the hell do you get disagrees for a comment like that????? What the hell is there to disagree to?

LAWSON721579d ago

Dead Space 3 is terrible, and you can tell why people are disagreeing by just reading the replies

Muzikguy1580d ago (Edited 1580d ago )

Don't start off with the 3rd game, it was terrible! Number one was my favorite

@Transported
I completely agree with that

@mikeslemonade
I agree with that also

cellur1111580d ago

That's a pretty bad idea. Dead space 3 is the worst and you would have no idea whats going on because 1 and 2 are pretty crucial to the story.

callahan091580d ago

Damn! I just bought Strider :(

That's the thing with PS+. Sometimes you buy a game, and then very shortly after you could have got it free on PS+ haha. This has surprisingly not happened very often to me, actually. Probably because I don't buy that many downloadable games. But I was bored and I tried the Strider demo and it was so awesome I had to keep playing, so I bought it. Oh well.

AceBlazer131580d ago

Strider, Muramasa, Dead Space and Tower fall Ascension, can't wait to play those.Not so much the Dead Space but hey it's free.

diehardmetallicafan1580d ago

its weird but ive been playing muramasa rebirth for the last week after seeing it free on ps+... did australia get something early for once?

xilx1580d ago

Does Australia operate off the EU store? (Or maybe Asia?) EU's had Muramasa free for PS+ since the end of April it looks like. The list posted here is for North America, EU is getting the same list except LEGO Batman 2: DC Superheroes in place of NA's Muramasa.

diehardmetallicafan1579d ago

that would probably be it. also muramasa rebirth is really addictive!

Outsider-G1580d ago

Nice update for me as I don't own any of these. Great month.

Keith221580d ago (Edited 1580d ago )
