3.0 out of 5 stars Just not that good. March 4, 2013
Verified Purchase
I loved the previous two entries in the series. The first had by far the best plot, the second cleaned up some of the action, had more diverse environments, and the gameplay really flowed. But this one.... Well, it's intentionally designed to be played as a cooperative game, which makes it harder to get into. Playing a horror game with major co-op elements inevitably makes the characters seem moronic at times. They need to keep coming up with ways for you to explore things all by yourself, even if that means everyone else sits around the one safe place while you have to go explore the creepy facility crawling with monsters all by yourself. The story was at times pretty silly even beyond that; the love triangle bit seemed particularly forced. The explanation of the markers, while perhaps consistent, ends up coming across as completely absurd. The main character also suffers from a similar problem as John McClane from Die Hard: the first time you see him, he's a regular guy, doing the best he can in a crazy situation. But now it's almost like he's a superhero, just mowing through guys.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dead Space 3 is Awesome! February 13, 2013
Verified Purchase
The graphics are awesome at 1920x1080 23in HD LCD Nvidia GTX260 i7 1st Gen 3.0Ghz, AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ 3Ghz Nvidia 630GT 2GB and just as good on my 14in notebook computer i7 2nd Gen 2.7Ghz with ATI switchable graphics. Graphics are either preset (high, very high, etc...) or configurable with custom. I have mine set to Very High on both desktops and High on the notebook and they look great. DirectX 11, don't see an option, but don't think it is needed since the graphic already look awesome! Only two out of three of my PC's would support it anyway.

I started out with Dead Space 2 and then bought 1 and with Dead Space 3, I pre-ordered expecting all the great things two had and more.
Somethings to expect;
1. Good graphics
2. unexpected scares/surprises
3. a new revamped weapon bench that is way better than the first two Dead Space - find the parts to build different weapons like the Pulse rifle, Line gun, or Plasma Cutter (Heavy Elite Frame, Tesla Core, attachment top/bottom tools, top/bottom tips. See the screenshots I posted.
4. auto save, so you don't have to stop at save stations, you can jump back to chapters/side missions with your current weapons.
5. you don't have to do co-op, but it is a neat addition, 2-3 side missions are for co-op play only that I have noticed.
6. power nodes have been replaced with chips (2+ damage -1 reload)
7. all ammo is combined, other supplies - health packs, and stasis.
8. blue prints to build certain weapons or create your own.

This is no doubt an awesome continuation of the Dead Space story and game play with a lot of additions.

UPDATE: 02-20-13 - The Dead Space team really did some work on this game. The details with in the game are some amazing art work.

Lets cut to the chase. Dead Space 3 is fantastic

I've read plenty of other peoples perspectives on the game, and as usual, I'm somewhat baffled at the negative reviews. I'll refrain from commenting on the source of the negative reviews, as we're all used to these awful reviews for video games each time a new one comes out. Its become almost silly how the insanely toxic negative reviews come out 2 hours after games become available. Obviously people don't play through the games to understand them.

Now, onto DS3. This is an operatic continuation to the DS series, with much of the critical mass of DS2 being picked up on, including some of the characters, and a portion of the storyline, and the gameplay in spirit at least. The action is nearly identical to DS2, with the same feeling of the controls, and same basic pacing. There are plenty of disgusting necromorphs to kill. They explode beautifully into a pile of creature debris....

This installment is much more story driven than the previous games. Its worth it to watch the 2 Dead Space movies if you can find them (they are on various streaming services). The whole story line will fill in for you, and Dead Space 3 will make much more sense. The story is actually quite ambitious and fulfilling, even if it is an amalgamation of numerous space/horror shooters.

The storyline is even bigger and more ambitious than the previous installments, as the characters are now closing in on the source of the plague and the original markers. A portion of the game is in space, where the feeling of weightlessness and disorientation is better than ever.

5.0 out of 5 stars ds3 February 22, 2013
Verified Purchase
If you liked the first two games then this is a worthy game in the series for sure. It has the same feel as the first two but is refined alot more by allowing you to create your own weapons and has some side missions for metal etc. you my want or need. Graphics look good as well and game is pretty long so i think you get your moneys worth of playing time plus replay value is good.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good game and an ok story July 4, 2014
By Pen
Verified Purchase
The game itself is pretty good but a little too easy even on the highest difficulty. Although it would be a while before I try it again, those who like a challenge should play the game in classic mode. I would say the story could have been better. It's a good story that was completely destroyed by its climax. The game play is good.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good game
This is a good game, and I especially love the graphics. My only complaint is Origin. I hate EA's Origin, and I wish they would just use Steam. Origin is a hassle.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good game, but "too predictable"
It is a good game for any Dead space Fan, but it is just too predictable and lacking of the general hallucinations / silent hill-like story / concepts. still, fun game.
