Conclusion: Awakened is a requirement for fans of Dead Space 3 – or even those that played the game and didn’t like it. It offers the ending that Dead Space 3 always should have had, and it gives a taste of the fear-based gameplay that was so desperately missing from the first. In some ways it unintentionally highlights the problems of the vanilla campaign – although only on the solo side.
Pros: A strong story filled with scares, Offers the ending the game should have had, Co-op is still a highlight
Cons: This DLC should have been part of the main game, Very short for $10, Totally different tone from the rest of the game
Excerpt: Laat ik maar meteen met de deur in huis vallen en zeggen dat ik de eerste twee Dead Space games niet gespeeld heb. Dat is echter geen probleem aangezien Dead Space 3 begint met een recap van wat er in de eerste twee delen is voorgevallen, alsook een kort verhaal over gebeurtenissen van 200 jaar geleden, om ons dan naar het heden te brengen waarin ingenieur Isaac Clarke de Die Hard John McClane van Dead Space lijkt te zijn geworden.
Excerpt: It's completely acceptable, and almost expected for a long running franchise to change its focus from time to time. You either evolve and introduced new elements or become stale and lose your core audience. In the case of the highly successful Dead Space series though, EA and Visceral Games may have chosen to evolve the latest chapter at the expense of what made the series so unique to begin with.
Conclusion: What threatens to kill Dead Space 3 is that it’s so much easier to talk about what it isn’t rather than what it is. It’s not scary, it’s not difficult, and it’s not especially memorable; however, its artistry is lush, its action is proven, and its co-op is strong. Those accolades don’t mean much given DS3′s genre company, and even it’s own lineage, but they deserve acknowledgment.
