Summary:

Dead Space 3 returns with a new emphasis on online co-op action and weapon crafting as players once again take control of Isaac Clarke as he battles mutant Necromorphs and struggles to maintain sanity and in Dead Space 3. Much of the action takes place on the frozen planet Tau Volantis as Clarke and newcomer John Carver attempt to find the source of the Necromorph infestation and track down their missing friend Ellie Langford. Gamers can take on the main campaign alone, but the co-op storyline reveals more intricate details of the plot.

Dead Space 3 is a game that is rife with options. The series picks up from where we left off with Dead Space 2, but adds some new elements to the game that we have never seen before. Nonetheless, the mechanics of the game have not changed too terribly much, and it can still be called a sci-fi horror game.

What's New--The Weapon Crafting System

Dead Space 3 employs a weapon crafting system that allows for an increased level of personalization. For example, you can create acid grenades using the components. You will find different weapon parts throughout the levels, which can help you to build new weapons.

Diverse Environments

The one thing that the Dead Space franchise has mastery over is offering diverse, intense and lonely environments. That was not cut out in Dead Space 3; there are just as many diverse environments. They range from floating through space in a shipwreck to climbing an ice covered mountain. The scary sound design also helps to add to the environment.

Dead Space Still Scary?

Well, that would depend on whether or not you choose to solo the game or do co-op. If you choose to do co-op, then a little bit of the atmosphere will have changed. It is not as intense because you have someone else there to tone it down. Also, they talk to each other, which changes the atmosphere.

However, the solo play is still much like the classic Dead Space game. Part of what makes this game so terrifying is it plays off your isolation and terror. It sends a unique chill down your spine. In most games, you wouldn't even think twice about walking down a hallway, but in this game, simply walking down a hallway can be a squirm inducing trial of nerves. The creators of Dead Space 3 also did a fantastic job at making sure that the game did not become too predictable. Just when you think nothing is going to happen, that is when something pops out and scares you.

Adding To The Meat Of The Storyline

Aside from being able to play the main storyline (Which can be somewhat bewildering), you can also do side missions, which helps you discover what happened to the people of the frozen planet.

Where Dead Space 3 Was Lacking

The main complaint about this game was the convoluted storyline. They added a love story in Dead Space 3, and to be honest, it is hard to feel any connection to the characters. Also, as certain characters die off, it leaves you thinking that you could not care less. The lack of AI in these characters also becomes annoying. Even though you will be alone in the environment a lot, there are still points where you will be with these characters, and the lack of AI becomes apparent.

Dead Space 3 stumbles at points, but there is no denying that this is a great game. If you liked the forlorn, beautifully diverse environments of this series predecessors, then you will love this game. It has taken the old concept and made it into an increasingly better game.
