    Review: Dead Space 3

    Developer: Visceral Studios Publisher: EA Games Platforms: PC, Xbox 360, PS3 Release Date: February 5, 2013 Rating: M for Mature This review is based on the PC version of the game I really didn't want to write this review. In fact, I was prepared to thrash Dead Space 3 like a Necromorph against a Sprawl citizen. Here was a game that resembled previous entries yet added so many unnecessary features, according to series diehards. Here was a Dead Space game that I was prepared to denounce. After Aliens: Colonial Marines, I was in full "game critic cynic" mode. I expected to tell you that the good in Dead Space 3 was heavily outweighed by the bad design choices. What I'm going to tell you is far different than what I expected. For all of Dead Space 3's minor (and major) missteps, this third horror traipse in space is a great entry in the storied franchise. Even though it lacks some of the legendary scares of the first two games, Dead Space 3 is an adrenaline-induced, panic-riddled thrill ride that's deserving of your time and money. Read on to find out why Visceral and EA's space epic is 2013's first flawed masterpiece. Dead Space 3 starts off with a bang, and not in the right way. Series protagonist Isaac Clarke is still fighting the demons of his past, though with noticeably less hallucinations and violent outbursts. He's been hiding from EarthGov of a populous planet, trying to salvage the relationship he broke with ex-girlfriend Ellie. Isaac, however, is quickly found by EarthGov agents and barely escapes from Unitologist militants intent on killing him. In a series first, the game tasks you with shooting humans instead of the undead nightmares. Oh boy.... Before you cry foul, I'll say this much; the combat against humans is at worst an annoyance. It only pops up in a scant few sequences, such as the opening acts. It never intrudes on the intense experience more than a handful of times and doesn't overstay its welcome. In fact, fighting Unitologists can be a welcome change of pace and a reprieve from the stress of dismembering unimaginable nightmares. With all this said, I'm still not in love with the combat mechanics. Dead Space is a survival horror game, not a Call of Duty title. Combat against living organisms is not a good fit for the franchise. Hopefully, Visceral focuses on what made this series great in the next Dead Space entry. So what of fighting the Necromorphs? Is it as scary and sweat-breaking as Dead Space and Dead Space 2? For the most part, yes. While I never felt under-prepared or truly out of ammo, I was constantly stressed by Necromorphs jumping from vents, crawling on ceilings, and popping out of elevators. It's nothing new but still manages to get your blood pumping in the right way. The Necromorphs are still agile, strong, and require the same dismemberment techniques of past games. When they start pouring out of every crevice and corner, Dead Space 3 really hits its stride. You'll start wondering if you have enough ammo to take on the new enemy variants, as well as the series stand-by terrors. Unfortunately, Dead Space 3 makes Isaac a little too powerful. I felt as though he was often carrying uncharacteristically high amounts of ammo. It feels a lot less frightening when you're walking around with a clip equivalent of 3,000 bullets for a telemetry-spike Gatling gun. Even though you might feel like you're running low on bullets, you'll almost never run out of ammo to fend off the numerous hordes of baddies. Corpses liberally drop clips and the environment is practically brimming with ammunition to grab. If you really find yourself strapped for plasma cutter or SMG rounds, you can always craft new clips. In another series first, Dead Space 3 has added workbenches where you can craft new weapons, swap out parts, upgrade various weapon stats, and build usable items. It's likely my favorite addition to the series as it makes you feel like the engineer Isaac truly is. It also allows you to find personal favorite weapon combinations, like my Evangelizer assault rifle coupled with a scope and electric shock rounds. It's a blast (quite literally) to test out the fantastic weapons Dead Space 3 can proffer. All you need are some resources and weapon parts to get going. In a rather cheeky move, Visceral implemented micro-transactions. These allow you to buy resources and weapon parts with real cash. I'll tell you right off that you'll never need to spend a dollar more to find the most effective weapons. With judicious use of the scavenger bots, you'll find plenty of ration seals, resources, and parts to make all of the gear you'll ever need. While some DLC suits and weapons can only be purchased with cash, I found them entirely trivial to the core experience. The workbench more or less ensures micro-transactions are useless and, at worst, somewhat intrusive on the atmosphere. I spent about 8 hours mucking around in Dead Space 3's campaign and, for the most part, the narrative is well put together. That is, until you reach the ham-fisted conclusion. While I wasn't expecting a superb revelation or particularly shocking ending, I would have appreciated a smoother close out to one of this generation's finest survival horror franchises. As a whole, the campaign shouldn't be played for the story, but rather for the intense action sequences, great set pieces, and stellar weapon customization. The addition of co-op should not be viewed as a negative against Dead Space 3. The two-player affair, while largely featuring the same content as the campaign, offers a few interesting side missions and can be great fun with a friend. While there's little to no survival horror element, I still enjoyed the few shots of fun I took with a buddy. They weren't the best experiences, but they were far from the worst either. Also, the technical design is as strong as ever. While Dead Space 3's visuals aren't the greatest thing I've come across, the art design and breath-taking vistas more than make up for a few shoddy textures here and there. Tau Volantis is positively beautiful and shines in that dead alien planet sort of way. The sound design is also great, with strong atmospheric sound and decent voice-over work. Not surprisingly, the soundtrack is easily the standout audio feature, subtly driving the action forward. Dead Space 3 is a flawed masterpiece. There are so many things it gets right. Yet I can't overlook the major missteps Visceral took along the path. If there weren't microtransactions and a few niggling problems with the narrative, Dead Space 3 would be an absolute must-play. As it is, it's a great experience but not the perfect end to the trilogy one could hope for. Pros: + Great audio and visual design + Exciting combat and weapons customization + Fun co-op that ramps up the action + Oodles of side content Cons: - Microtransactions......why?! - Hammy narrative and plot threads Overall Score: 8.5 (out of 10) Great Dead Space 3 isn't perfect but it's worthy of your time and money for those who like their horror games action-packed.
  2. Last week, it was discovered that you were able to farm resources in Dead Space 3 with minimal effort. Considering that the game includes microtransactions to buy materials for crafting, many thought that this was some sort of glitch. However, EA has told GameFront that this exploit is actually intentional. "The resource-earning mechanic in Dead Space 3 is not a glitch. We have no plans to issue a patch to change this aspect of the game. We encourage players to explore the game and discover the areas where resources respawn for free. We“ve deliberately designed Dead Space 3 to allow players to harvest resources by playing through the game." EA Public Relations representative, Jino Talens, also reminds us that the microtransaction system still exists "for those that wish to accumulate upgrades instantly." What are your thoughts on this whole farming exploit/microtransaction fiasco around Dead Space 3?
  3. A recent posting on the official Dead Space 3 website has revealed one of the new enemies you'll be facing in some of the darkest corners of Tau Volantis, known simply as the feeders. From what the description says, the feeders will be blinded horrors that rely on sound to find and eat you. While that certainly sounds creepy enough as it is, the reveal makes sure to mention they aren't just sensitive to sound, they're extremely sensitive to sound. To the point that just alerting one of them means you've most likely alerted all of them. But you can also use these new monsters to your advantage. By throwing cans or flashing your light in certain areas, you can supposedly get the feeders to clear a room out for you or even cause a distraction for other enemies as you sneak on by to finish your objective. But you might think twice about filling a room with these when you see just what they look like below.

  4. New images have been found that show that you, in the upcoming sequel- Dead Space 3, will not be facing the horrors of the twisted Necromorphian horde by yourselfs and instead you will be treated with a friend ,Seargent John Carver(who starred in the DS3 graphic novel tie-in teaser trailer), in which you will share the most intense moments of bloodshead as you either try to save your friend from certain doom or savour the moment where your friend is being teared into pieces,limb by limb, until you will be caught unguarded and have to face the horrors by yourself. :] Here are the screenshots:
