Dead Space 3 (Xbox 360)

PC Magazine
2 December 2013
  • Conclusion: Despite its lack of true survival horror elements and forced, clichéd story line, Dead Space 3 keeps you on your toes and deliver compelling combat and presentation.
  • Pros: Superb combat action, intense moments, and a killer crafting system. Co-op adds more side missions and cut scenes that are worth playing through.
  • Cons: Poor storyline. Annoying fetch quests.

Dead Space 3

Thunderbolt Games

  • Excerpt: It’s a difficult balancing act for a work of horror to capture the grotesque without also becoming so. Dead Space 3 has nearly become the grotesque, a flashy and bloated genre piece. Sure, following up the generation’s most defining horror with a resolution is an unenviable task but it’s also just a simple, cinematic action sequel.

‘Dead Space 3: Awakened’ Review

Stick Skills
11 April 2013
  • Excerpt: The mind games have returned. As a Dead Space fan, that’s possibly the best news you’ve heard all day. For myself, the first two installments in the franchise simply wowed me with the amount of content that you experienced which actually only happened in your head. It was the staple of the franchise, or so I thought, until the release of Dead Space 3 which was largely lacking in that area. Luckily for us hardcore Dead Space fans, Awakened is a succulent treat.

Dead Space 3 Awakened Review

2 April 2013
  • Conclusion: You should absolutely play Awakened if you’ve already beaten Dead Space 3. It’s one of the more original and memorable parts of Isaac’s story… which says as much about Dead Space 3 as a game as it does the quality of this DLC. The creepy atmosphere, the dementia, and the bite-sized story of devotion gone wrong stand out strongly against some of the more phoned-in story beats of the main game. Playing it did make me wonder why this style didn’t show up in the main story.

Dead Space 3 Review

27 March 2013
  • Excerpt: The survival-horror genre gets such a bad rap these days that it’s tempting to overlook them for games with a frantic gunplay, co-op multiplayer elements, customizable weapons or … wait, that’s actually what Dead Space 3 offers. Not often one to take franchise risks, EA made a massive gamble years ago on an untested studio with an unknown IP in a survival-horror genre that had been seemingly owned by Konami for eons.

Review: Dead Space 3: Awakened (Microsoft Xbox 360)

Diehard GameFAN
22 March 2013
  • Summary: : Dead Space 3: Awakened is one of the better pieces of DLC created, in general, in that it’s designed in a way that will appeal to anyone who owns Dead Space 3 , whether their opinion of the game was high or low. It wraps up the plot of the game in a less ambiguous, more sequel friendly, more interesting fashion, keeps the elements of the game that were generally fine intact, and changes the focus of the game to what gained the series its fans in the first place without...

Dead Space 3: Awakened

14 March 2013
  • Excerpt: Isaac Clarke and John Carver are back in action. How can they be roaming the barren wastes of Tau Volantis after the bleak, deck-clearing finale of Dead Space 3 ? That mystery gets Awakened off to a promising start; if only the intrigue lasted through the rest of the adventure. As a two-hour epilogue to Dead Space 3 ’s campaign, Awakened keeps the story ball rolling; it just doesn’t land anywhere all that interesting.
  • Pros: +
  • Cons: ? What’s Ellie doing while all this is going on?
