Dead Space 3 Review

Tech2
3 December 2013
  • Excerpt: Dead Space 3 had me worried long before it ever hit the store shelves, or “the cloud” as the cool kids would put it. I approached it with the same trepidation experienced when bracing oneself moments before ending up in a highway car pileup. Don't get me wrong, this isn't because I have a strong dislike for the franchise.

Dead Space 3: Awakened

  • Conclusion: Mediocre: An exercise in apathy, neither Solid nor Liquid. Not exactly bad, but not very good either. Just a bit 'meh,' really.

Dead Space 3 Review: Embrace the cold

blastmagazine.com
29 August 2013
  • Excerpt: The genre of survival horror has seen some major changes during this console generation. Heavy stalwarts like Resident Evil and Silent Hill were given action packed makeovers to try and compete with a wider audience. New franchises have sprouted, each bringing its different take to the act of scaring the user, and each one succumbing to a different level of success. One of the most impressively strong newcomers is Dead Space.

  • Conclusion: Misfires and all, it’s at least commendable that Dead Space 3 makes an effort to exhibit some fresh experimentation into what has become a truly bloated media franchise; plus the combat still shines for the most part. Sadly though, better elements like the crafting system are lamentably set against a mundane and lifeless backdrop that rarely excites, let alone spooks, on the grand level of previous games in the series.

Dead Space 3 Review

22 March 2013
  • Summary: Maybe it’s not the choice I would have made, but it provides a startling premise for the events of the first two games (and the expanded universe) and pulls it together with enough point-and-shoot variety that I was never disinterested.
  • Pros: A shining example of how to make a third-person sci-fi shooter
  • Cons: A disappointing departure from the Ishimura

Dead Space 3 PS3 Review

Console Obsession
12 March 2013
  • Excerpt: Rather controversially, Dead Space 3 is a cooperative game. The previous two games in the series skipped having this option included, so many fans were obviously a little worried about it being tossed into the mix in this third game. Luckily, it doesn’t feel forced on you all that much, although there is some bonus content for those who do decide to play in a team.

Dead Space 3 Review

GameSpot
11 March 2013
  • Excerpt: Dead Space 3 doesn't want to take sides in the debate over what constitutes a true survival horror game. It would rather leave the choice up to you. This is a game rife with options and flexibility, building on the strengths of the franchise with clever new ideas that let you tailor the experience to your liking. It hits a few sour notes in its story and struggles at times when it steps away from the core combat, but Dead Space 3 is a thrilling and worthwhile sequel.
  • Pros: Excellent weapon crafting system adds flexibility to combat, Outstanding sense of atmosphere, Great amount of environmental variety, Co-op makes for a fun alternate approach to the campaign
  • Cons: Convoluted story, Some gameplay sequences fall flat
