Let me start off by saying three words...We Want More! Seriously, if the game developers are reading this post. My hat, my kidney (only need one to live, its a fact) goes to you. Dead Space 3 is amazing. Yes, I was scared. Yes, I had nightmares. Yes, I screamed. But if that doesn't give you the excitement to finish a level and try to find out what's ahead than it just shouldn't be created.
This game just engulfs you in, spits you out and begs you for more. Gaming wise three key items you will need; A) alot of ammo, B) alot of med kits and finally C) a very powerful gun. Just upgrade everything about it. Because you will need, oh yes you will.You think you safe in a 3 x 3 closet. No, its a lie things just come out of nowhere and you stomp, shoot, and stomp some more. Like I said before the stomping never gets old. You will also need some hot/ice packs for your left pointer finger. You will need that flashlight, you will use that flashlight and you will thank that oh bright flashlight.
Most games that have came out since 2012 have had two discs, right? One for multiplayer and one for updates and/or campaign, whoopie. Well Dead Space 3 does come with two discs, but it is ALL campaign. The story line is ridiculous, challenging and fun. At one point I just wanted to find things to shoot because it was so much fun. But with two campaign discs you will spend more than ten
hours of game play.
But back to the game play, its not a button smasher game. Like Dante's Inferno or a fast paced third person shooter like Gears of War. Dead Space 3 urges you to take your time. You want to take things slow when approaching corners and long hallways. Within the game their will be puzzles, codes that will take time to solve; if you've played Batman: Arkham Asylum or Arkham city you know what I'm talking about. But that just adds more to excitement. To compare its being in those Nicholas Cage National Treasure movies where, you are given clues and you have to solve them to solve the riddle. Within the game you can always change out your gun or customize it. If you find enough spare parts you can buy a gun, but it will take time.
The story line picks off right from Dead Space 2. If you haven't played Dead Space or Dead Space 2 don't worry the game developers will bring you up to speed. If you are worried about not reaching the checkpoint(s). You can save at any point you wish and start from there when you load your game.As Pol mentioned the world the game developers created is just fantastic and the game does give you a sense of awareness of "being out there".
If you wear a headset, don't. You just hear things you wish you hadn't heard. The "creatures" move around in the game and pop out of nowhere. Also, don't adjust the brightness of the game it will ruin most of the "surprises" that the game offers and lay await.
I haven't yet played the co-op campaign. But I can say and be assured that if co-op is the same as single player campaign than it will be epic.For my review, I give this game a 9 out 10. Its exciting, challenging, interacting and you just don't get bored of playing it. The best part is that their is more smashing.
